How long have you been photographing weddings? Are you comfortable giving direction?
I photographed my first wedding in 2012 and have since worked with dozens and dozens of couples. I love that no two weddings are alike! I’ve learned to “read the room” and provide guidance where necessary, particularly during group portraits. During couples’ portraits, I prefer to get you moving and/or talking so you feel natural and at ease in front of the camera.
Why should we do an engagement session?
This is likely the first time you’re being professionally photographed, so why let those nerves build up until your actual wedding day? Engagement sessions are such a great way to break the ice AND come away with more casual (or steamy!) photos in a unique location. Many of my couples use them for guest books and/or save the dates too!
What equipment do you use? Are you insured?
I work with two full frame Nikon camera bodies and an assortment of prime and zoom lenses for different scenarios. The 35mm and 85mm are personal favorites and do such a beautiful job of mimicking the way the human eye views the world. I use on-camera flash attachments and typically bounce the light off the ceiling instead of aiming directly at people. And yes- I’m absolutely insured!
When will we receive our photos?
I first deliver a sneak peek gallery with highlights of your wedding. The remainder of your gallery is ready within six weeks, followed by your complimentary USB gift package.
