Right now, I know you’re in the midst of planning and you have a long checklist of things that need to get done. Hiring a photographer being one of them. Here’s the thing.. when you invest in a wedding photographer make sure you understand that they hold the fate of your memories. Your photographs will be one of the few things that lasts past your wedding day. If you’re shopping around trying to find the cheapest deal – I’m probably not that. But I’m passionate about capturing couples who believe in my value, and trust me to capture their story in authentic photographs that will last a lifetime.
You most likely haven’t been a bride or groom before so you’re figuring it all out as you go. Not only have I planned my own elopement, but I’ve also been to over a hundred weddings. I have a lot of knowledge on the to-do’s and what not to-do’s, how to get permits, how to build a timeline, how to make the most of your day, how to make the day uniquely you. Most importantly – I want to make this an easy, painless, and as stress free as possible. You enjoying your day and enjoying one another is everything to me.
Instead of dreading just ‘getting your photos done’, I want you to be a partner with me in this creative process! I want to be more to you than just your photographer, and you more to me than my client. As weird and silly as that sounds coming from a complete stranger - from the beginning to the end of this process I want us to be friends. You should feel comfortable to ask me anything, tell me anything, suggest anything, just like you would with a bestie.
I want to genuinely and authentically capture the love and magic between you two. I’m not there to pose you in awkward and cheesy ways that make you feel uncomfortable. With gentle direction and suggested hand or body placement – I want you to feel comfortable running, playing, dancing, and snuggling with your partner in from of my camera. Trust me when I say, EVERYONE feels awkward when a camera is pointing at them.. me included.. but by the end you’ll be going on and on about how fun and easy it was.
I am all about doing something out of the ordinary! Breaking traditions – doing things your way despite what others think. That applies to your engagement session OR your wedding! Do whatever makes your heart happy! If that’s running away to elope in the desert, getting married in a green dress, doing engagements in a roller rink or movie theatre, trashing your dress in the ocean after your ceremony, you name it – I’ll help you make it happen. As someone who got married in an out-of-the-norm way, I fully support your decision – whatever that may be.
I only take on a few weddings/elopements each month. So be sure to inquire soon if you want to ensure I’m available! I do this because I’ve been on the opposite end of the spectrum with multiple weddings a weekend, every weekend, and it’s truly not fair to my clients if I’m overbooking myself and not able to give each and every one of you my all. You wouldn’t be getting my best work if I were physically, mentally, and creatively exhausted. I also do this to keep my turnaround time quick. I know you’re wanting your photo’s back as soon as possible and I have no interest in making you wait more than a couple weeks to get your full gallery back!
