The feeling of sunlight on your back as you say your wedding vows, the volume faded. The press of your best friend's tear drenched cheek on your neck. Your wedding photos will feel like you because they are full to the brim with being human. Honest, intentional, effortless. Magic.
And yes, I will absolutely tell you if your bangs look weird.
WEDDING COVERAGE BEGINS AT $4000. ELOPEMENTS START AT $2000. As One size rarely fits all, WEDDING AND ELOPEMENT QUOTES ARE TAILORED for location, guest count and your unique needs. PLEASE REACH OUT with a few details about your day AND WE'll GET THIS PARTY STARTED.
My job is to honor your love story in whatever shape it takes. I am here to celebrate and capture your connections.
Here's the thing. Every day is a good day to get in the picture. Engagements, anniversaries, motherhood, parenthood, you're on vacation in the redwood... just because it's Tuesday. Honestly, we don't need a reason.
PORTRAIT Sessions begin at $650.
Every season of your life matters. You don't need a special occasion to schedule a portrait session. Each day deserves a little confetti. Let's commemorate this wild, messy and heartbreakingly beautiful human existence.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I am an unapologetic movie nerd with a soft spot for sci fi, Nic Cage and Wim Wenders. I’m usually soaked up to my knees in whatever body of water is closest to me and will never not have sand in my car.
WHAT ABOUT COPYRIGHT?
All clients receive unlimited personal usage rights to their images. This means you are free to share and print your images. I retain full artistic copyright which ensures I am able to manage my brand, share my images and continue to book clients that connect with my work. I do understand that privacy can sometimes be a concern. In these cases, a non disclosure fee will be implemented.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER?
I hauled my Mom's 35mm Minolta to school in eighth grade and ended up with a yearbook of couples portraits. I also have a fine arts degree in commercial photography from the Alberta University of the Arts and spent a minute with a masters program in New York until skyscrapers made me claustrophobic. Weddings have been my focus since 2016. I am a perpetual student and strive to learn something new every time I go to work.
WHAT DO WE DO IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
Swimmer, do not panic! There is no such thing as bad weather in my books. I have photographed ceremonies in torrential downpours and wandered many a wild and windy beach for engagement sessions. I love the variety weather provides in lighting and over all mood. As long as you are comfortable - grab an umbrella, some sensible shoes and a jacket - adventure awaits.
WILL YOU SHOOT OUR WEDDING?
First, know that I celebrate all bodies and all love stories. You are not too this, too that or not enough of anything - you are just plain old fashioned amazing. I'm very much a people first, party second photographer. I get excited about beautiful, meaningful details but I'm ultimately stoked to work with thoughtful, joyful couples who recognize that the photographs from their wedding day will last ages beyond that last bite of cake. So let's make a connection. Head over to my contact page and take a few minutes to tell me what you're about. The story of you is the story I'm going to tell so I like to do my homework!
HOW DO WE MAKE IT OFFICIAL?
A signed contract and a non-refundable 50% retainer will lock in your date. The balance is due three weeks prior to your wedding. In order to serve my clients fully, I take on a limited number of weddings each year. Weddings typically book out between 6 - 18 months in advance. To reduce future heartbreak, reach out as soon as your date is set. Please note that an inquiry about a date is not a hold.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE?
Alot! The exact number will vary depending on the nature of the event. Wedding collections typically average 50-75 edited images per hour. Rest assured that I do not cap your image delivery and will ensure you receive every image that meets my standards and contributes to your story in a meaningful way.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
Online wedding galleries are typically delivered 6-8 weeks from the date of the event. Portrait sessions are generally turned around in 2 weeks.
DO YOU USE A SHOT LIST?
The only time I use a shot list is during family and group photos. Because drafting family trees from memory is just not what I'm about. During our consultations we will get into the nitty gritty of the wedding day timeline and any particularly special elements that you'd like captured. Having this information beforehand prepares me to capture your day in an organic, unobtrusive fashion while still making sure you know what to do with your hands.
DO YOU USE A SECOND SHOOTER?
No. I don’t roll with an entourage because I really don’t want your day to feel like a production. That said, I generally do not shoot weddings with more than 150 guests.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes! Especially if there are tacos. Collection rates plus travel fees apply. Reach out if you're concocting a vision outside of the Pacific Northwest.
