One of the most common things I hear from couples is how comfortable they felt with me! I am an expert at guiding people on what to do in front of the camera, but in a very natural and genuine way. I'm so aware of the couples I'm working with and when they need a little extra help!
The most popular coverage option is 8 hours, but I'm here to help your vision come to life! If you only need a couple hours for an elopement, or you want me around for an entire weekend, we can make it happen :) I'm here to help you make a timeline to ensure there's time for all the important shots throughout the day!
I love shooting film when it's something that the couple really appreciates. I am only able to shoot film when I have a second photographer, and I still focus mainly on digital with a couple rolls of film as a fun addition. I love the way film photographs look and feel, and they're full of nostalgia for me.
Yes, I do! Hiring a second photographer is always an option. It allows us to capture more of the day, more angles, more people, etc. Generally a second photographer isn't necessary for small, intimate weddings & elopements, but it is helpful for larger weddings.
I am available for travel! I mainly photograph weddings in Santa Barbara and Seattle areas, but I'm always down for an adventure :) I have a simple travel fee and I take care of all my own travel plans.
I always send couples a sneak peek within a day or two of the session/wedding :) For portrait sessions, the images are delivered within 3-4 weeks. For weddings, the turnaround time is 6-8 weeks.
The amount of images depends on the hours of coverage. For weddings, on average I deliver 700+ high quality, edited images via personal online gallery. I hold the rights to the images, but you have the freedom to download, post, and print the images!
There's a few photographers that inspire me (John Dolan, Rodney Smith), nature, textures, and old film photographs. I love the movie Pride & Prejudice; it was shot on film and the colors throughout that movie are a huge inspiration.
