WHERE ARE YOU BASED? DO YOU TRAVEL? I live in quaint, vibrant Walla Walla, WA. Haven't heard of it? Come visit! It's artsy, warm, full of good food, and you can get anywhere in just 10 minutes. That being said, I love to travel to bigger and smaller places! Travel fees to think about include airfare and lodging. Other than that, we'd be set!
DO YOU SHOOT ELOPEMENTS? Absolutely! Deep in the forest, at the edge of the ocean, on a mountain side--I'm in!
WHAT IS YOUR SHOOTING STYLE? I aim to create candid, natural feelings in photos. When people start moving, dancing, wrapping each other up, belly-laughing, or whispering--that's when my shooting impulse kicks in. Each couple is composed of two unique humans which means that you as a couple have a one-of-a-kind dynamic that I will aim to identify and roll with. Some couples are giggly. Some are sweet and quiet. Some like to play/frolic/adventure, and others rock those powerful, quiet moments that make images come alive as well. What I'm saying is--I want you to be YOU in your photos. I'll be there for it.
WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT? My dream clients are those who value photography, make time for it, and want to create alongside me! Getting incredible photos starts from the moment you start planning your wedding. It starts when you invite your sweet great-grandma to the celebration, when you decide to wear your mom's veil, when you plan for a first look at your favorite overlook. So much of what makes photos powerful is the effort you put into preparing for them. I am 100% willing to brainstorm about how to make that happen in the context of a wedding! Let's chat.
DO YOU BLOG ALL YOUR WEDDINGS? No, I don’t. I hope to get better at that! Being a mama means I'm constantly measuring where spend my time! I share a lot of current work on Instagram though, and if you'd like to see a full wedding set or two, just email me! I'll send you a link which can give you a good feel for what couples receive back from me.
DO YOU USE BACKUPS? I always bring backup gear in case something stops working (heaven forbid)! Also, each shot is recorded immediately to two memory cards which is just another way of protecting your memories from the moment they happen.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES? No later than 12 weeks after your wedding.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES? Full Wedding coverage starts at $2,900. Whatever you need, I’m happy to talk it through with you. Shoot me an email or give me a call!
DO YOU OFFER PACKAGES WITH A SECOND SHOOTER? Yes, I do! I can't say enough of the value of a second shooter. To have two angles and two cameras to capture the plethora of emotion happening all at once--it's worth every penny you invest in that.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? I shoot on two 5D Mark IIIs and a collection of prime lenses that I love. I spend most of the wedding shooting with the 50 and 35mm lenses whose versatility means more time shooting moments, less time shuffling lenses.
HOW MANY HOURS SHOULD I HIRE YOU FOR? Unless you're planning a small intimate gathering, I recommend booking at least 8 hours. Letting your wedding day unfold slowly pays gorgeously when it comes to your photos. There is so much artistic potential in a well-paced wedding! I love to help clients put together the timeline that allows time to document in a way I'll be proud of!
HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS? I deliver 400-600 high-resolution edited images via an online gallery. You'll receive a link and this link will be yours for one year. You can share it with friends and family and download images at any point during that time.
WE LIKE WHAT WE SEE, NOW WHAT? Let’s chat! Don’t be shy! Let's start the conversation and see if it's a fit!
