I adore my clients. I love meeting newly engaged couples, hearing how they met, and just witnessing their giddy love. I truly believe it's important to develop a photographer-client relationship prior to the wedding day - to get to know each other before I photograph one of the most important days of your life. Whether we meet up for coffee or you choose to do an engagement session, I greatly appreciate the opportunity to meet face-to-face before the big day. I've had weddings before where I met the bride and groom for the first time as they were getting ready. To be completely honest, it was a little weird, and the day just goes, well, differently.

So, herein lies the reason why I recommend doing an engagement session. For one, it gives us a chance to meet in person. It allows you to see how I work behind the camera and gives you the opportunity to get more comfortable in front of the camera. It also lets me see what your relationship is like, what type of guidance you like/need, and what you're comfortable with. So, if that wasn't clear, I highly recommend doing an engagement session. Plus, you'll get lots of fun photos together! 

I believe in giving my clients what they see and what they paid for. What I mean by this is... A lot of photographers showcase beautiful work on their websites, but the photos you receive don't match the caliber of the work you booked them for. These photographers put a lot of time into editing the photos they post on their website, but when it comes to all of your photos, they run them through some batch editing process, and your photos don't look like what you had expected. I go through each photo individually and ensure that everything looks right. Yes, this takes a long time. The downside is you won't receive your photos from me within one week of your wedding. However, the plus is that when you do receive your photos, they will have been individually edited and will have the same quality as what you see in my portfolio.

My photography style is a mix of photojournalism and fine art. This means that I capture moments as they unfold in order to tell a story. The fine art approach allows me to express my creative vision, providing you with beautiful portraits. While my style is more candid and not extremely posed, I will definitely guide you and do my absolute best to make you feel like the camera isn't even there.

I would like you to shoot my wedding. How do I start the process?

First, fill out my contact form, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. If possible, I would love to meet you both in person so you can get to know your future photographer and can ask me everything and anything your heart desires. If you are out of town and a Skype or Facetime consultation is best for you, we can of course arrange that as well. Once you have decided to choose me as your photographer, I will send over a contract for you to sign and and return with a deposit.

Where are you based? Do you travel?

I am based in the San Francisco Bay Area, but I absolutely love to travel! I will travel anywhere to photograph an awesome couple in an amazing location! Let me know where you are, and we’ll figure out the best way to get me out to you.

What kind of equipment do you use? Do you bring back-up equipment?

I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III and use a combination of prime and zoom lenses. I bring two camera bodies and an assortment of lenses and flashes to every wedding. This way, if there is a problem with a piece of equipment, I have a back-up that I can grab right away.

When will I get to see my wedding photos?

Your photos will generally be ready within 6 to 10 weeks after your wedding date. I go through a careful process of choosing the best images from the day and then individually processing each of them. I would much rather take the time to properly sort through and edit your photos and present you with beautiful images than to rush through them.

How many photos will I receive?

You will get a minimum of 80 photos from your engagement session and minimum of 400 images from your wedding day. I say that to be safe, but it usually ends up being way more.

Can I upload my photos to Facebook and other social media once I receive them?

Yes, of course! As stated in my contract, you may use your photos for personal use only.

What if something happens to you and you can not make it to my wedding?

It never happened that I was not able to photograph a wedding; however, life is unpredictable. If something tragic were to happen, I have a network of professional photographers whom I can contact to cover your event.
