Your wedding day only happens once. I am here to not only document your day from beginning to end but to deliver the highest quality of service to all my brides, before, after, and during the wedding. All wedding collections include full-day unlimited coverage, second photographer, complimentary engagement session, and all wedding images on USB with print release. I also love to delight my brides with surprise gifts along the way!
Full-day wedding collections begin at $1,900
Elopements and small wedding coverage begin at $500 and include 2 hours of coverage.
I sometimes run a referral and promotions throughout the year. Please do not hesitate to ask about these.
What equipment do you use and do you have backup equipment?
I shoot with two Nikon D750’s, one of the best camera bodies for photographing weddings. A unique feature this model has is a dual memory card slot, so you don’t have to worry about losing your images due to damaged memory cards (which has been known to happen to other photographers). I use a combination of prime and zoom lenses, and have multiple flashes. I know how to light any situation – I am not a “natural light” photographer only and know how to manufacture my own lighting when it is needed.
How many images will I get?
I don’t limit how many images you get. I shoot a lot on wedding day and you can estimate to receive 60-100 images per hour. It all depends on the pace of your day and the events that happen. You receive all the images on a USB with a print release. I take the time to delete duplicates, funny faces, and test shots to save you time when you view your beautiful photos. I edit each image for exposure, color correction, and contrast. Extra edits for wrinkles, blemishes, stray hairs, etc. come with prints or purchased digital files.
Can we take out the second photographer? We will only have about 100 guests and it's not that important to us to have two photographers.
I strongly recommend a second shooter, so much so that they are included in all wedding collections except for elopements and courthouse weddings. Weddings are very fast-paced and moments can be missed. On top of that it is always good to have the backup in case of the very rare instance something happens to me or my equipment (so far nothing yet, knock on wood). The photographers who work for me are also seasoned wedding photographers and will deliver excellent images.
Should I do a first look?
From a photography stand point having a first look speeds the process of family photos and I will typically have more time to spend with the bride and groom when there is one. On top of this you have a wonderful moment of privacy between you and your spouse-to-be. If you do not want to have a first look I suggest planning a cocktail hour or stepping out of the reception to have enough time for family photos.
Do you recommend a bridal portrait session?
I am able to create a few portraits of the bride on wedding day but often the day is so fast-paced and sometimes I am only left with 30 minutes (sometimes even less!) for bride and groom portraits, let alone bridal portraits. Getting your portraits done beforehand is a great way to do a trial run for your hair, makeup, and dress. You will have more images and we will not have to rush as much on wedding day. As a bonus you can have a beautiful canvas or print to display on the wedding day.
I am also available for senior portraits, couples portraits, events, and more.
