SHOOTING PHILOSOPHY

I do this for me and for you. Somewhere along the line I realized my heart stopped beating when I wasn’t creating. I am my very best self when deep in the trenches of that fuzzy place of turning ideas and instincts into imagery. I’ve painted, drawn, spun pots, pulled prints, but this is where I’ve found my sweet spot. And this is where you come in. You’re my inspiration. Your story, your life, your physical being in this world. It’s not about perfection, weight, money, or anything except the connection you share. With every movement, look, word spoken, there’s an opportunity for me to catch a little corner of it into a little frame, click a button, and make art that gives you a piece of myself and preserves your beautiful, real, in-this-moment-never-again self.

I believe in images that are authentic and that tell a story. I look for details when I shoot: the way your dress catches light, the way he twists his new wedding ring. These little things capture the emotion of the day and are just as significant as your portraits.

I also believe in beautiful portraiture. My style could be described as “prompted.”  I don’t expect you to know what will look good in photos, so I bring the ideas. My clients say that I’m disarming and that I put them at ease. Everyone says they’re awkward in photos but I’ve yet to actually find that to be true.

In learning your story and understanding the unique dynamic that makes your relationship special, I understand what kinds of things to look for when I shoot.  You won't have to direct me on your wedding day.  By the time the day rolls around I've gotten enough information from you to capture the day seamlessly and with images that we're both proud of. I love it when, at the end of the night, my couple and I have bonded and I end up sticking around on the dance floor to grab a few dances and a selfie or two.


WEDDING FAQ

DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT TO BOOK?

I do. A 50% deposit is required to hold your wedding day, and the remainder of your balance is due one month before your wedding day. Because I block off your date and am unavailable to take on any other work, your reservation fee is due at the time of booking and isn’t refundable. Rescheduling & cancellation guidelines are outlined in our contract.

HOW DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT?

Payment is accepted via any major credit card or personal check.

HOW LONG WILL MY PHOTOS TAKE, AND HOW WILL WE RECEIVE THEM?

I know how excited you are to get your images back! The day goes by so quickly, and your photos are a great way to remember all the amazing moments. I work with a 30-50 day turnaround time, which is pretty quick! It gives me enough time to make sure your gallery is my best work and gets to you while the excitement is fresh. For all full wedding collections, your images will be delivered on a USB drive as well as an online gallery that can be shared with friends and family.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE GET?

I shoot a lot of images on your wedding day. More than you will want to get back. A big part of my process is culling it down to images that represent the day, and reflect you as a couple. In the planning process I get to know you and learn what you value, and tailor my shooting approach around that information. In general, you can expect about 50 images per hour as a baseline.

ARE YOU LIGHT AND AIRY OR DARK AND MOODY?

I really like to avoid this question! So much of it depends on the lighting in a given location or the weather. My style is to tell an honest and heartfelt story of your day with a fine art approach. I look for beautiful lighting, be it dim and overcast or bright and sunny. Your images should be an accurate reflection of the day, not just my editing style.

ARE YOU A TRADITIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER OR MORE ARTISTIC?

I believe in images that tell a story. For me, this is not about taking only posed shots. Understandably, it can be important to have some formal family photos. It’s important to have a few of you smiling and looking at the camera. It’s also important, arguably even more important, to have images that capture the emotion of the day and the interaction between the two of you. I look for small details and gestures, and when it comes to portraits I give prompts that create lively and flattering photos that display your unique bond.

SHOULD WE DO A FIRST LOOK?

Your day goes by fast. It’s a beautiful whirlwind, but for many couples, a first look is an opportunity to slow down the pace of the day and recall why you’re here in the first place! It’s also lots of fun and quite suspenseful. As a photographer, I love this time because it allows for beautiful bridal portraits that might feel rushed later on in the day!

DOES IT COST TO HAVE YOU TRAVEL?

I love to travel for weddings! For locations over an hour from Seattle I issue a travel fee. Please inquire for more details.

DO WE NEED A SECOND SHOOTER?

Maybe.  I shoot most weddings solo, but there are times and situations where it's helpful to have a second shooter.  A second shooter provides yet another perspective and can help ensure that I’m in the best place at the best time for you on your wedding day. I am very selective about those that I partner with and only choose shooters with experience and that are aligned with our vision for your day. Though I price my packages to be shot by me alone, I’m happy to discuss the addition of a second shooter.

YOU SAY YOU OFFER A CUSTOM TIMELINE -- WHAT IS THAT?

To ensure I’m in the right place at the right time and that I capture every important moment, we collaborate on a general timeline for how the day will be carried out. If you have a planner I usually work with them as well.
