How would you describe your style & approach?
Timeless. My goal is to deliver photographs that you can look back in 5 or 50 years, and you'll still be sparked with a memory + a feeling. I want to create images that show who you are, not just what you wore that day.
On the day of your wedding, my approach is documentary. Don't worry, I'll still give you direction and guidance. This means things like adjusting and tidying the getting ready room for a cleaner photograph; moving a fly away hair from your cheek; and eliciting movement, interaction, and emotion through series of prompts and conversation.
When & how do we receive our images?
Good things take time! Between 10-16 weeks later, in a beautiful online gallery where you can download your high res files, and order prints and albums from a professional print shop! You can expect previews a day or 2 after.
How many wedding images will we receive?
The number of images depends on how long I cover your wedding. Typically you will receive from 500-700 images for an 8 hour day.
Can we see a real wedding gallery?
Absolutely! Send me an email and I can share a few recent galleries.
What if I'm awkward in front of the camera?
That is okay!! Unless you're a professional model, you will feel uncomfortable at first, and that's very normal. For 80% of the day, you don't even need to think about the fact that there's a camera walking around. For the hour of portraits, I'll get you moving, hugging, interacting; and in a bit of time you'll get back to feeling yourself. We will make beautiful, awkward, fun, honest, and memorable pictures.
Do you take family photos at the wedding?
Yes! I know you don't see a lot of family photos on here, but I'll always make sure to help you work your schedule to find time for these important things.
What's my style?
My shooting approach is documentary with a hint of stylizing; my editing style is reminiscent of film with a dash of moodiness & romance, but always something that will stay timeless.
Do you shoot with a second photographer?
Most weddings and elopements I photograph solo, but you will always have the option to book a second! Second photographers are great when logistically it'd be impossible to have coverage in two places at once; when the guest list is 150 or more; or anytime you just want extra coverage.
Where are you based out of?
Kelowna is home #1, Vancouver is home #2 - there are no travel fees for weddings within the Okanagan or the Greater Vancouver area. I also love to travel (who doesn't), take me with you!
What is the payment schedule?
A deposit of $1,400.00 at the time of booking secures the date. Final payment is due one month before your wedding.
Do you have backup equipment & insurance?
Yes and yes.
Do you have any specific vendors you love working with?
