You won't have to “cheese” for me, or do anything that feels forced. These won't be cookie-cutter images, they will be YOURS. I want to capture how hard your partner makes you laugh and all the warm fuzzies they make you feel.
Like I said, I want us to be so hyped to work together. I believe art thrives when a friendship is formed. I'm not just another "vendor" at your wedding. Trust, connection, and an open mind are key for amazing photos; they make magic happen. We're going to have a great time dreaming and creating together. You'll look back and know this was a meaningful experience.
The centerpieces and confetti disappear, but the photographs are forever. The images from your wedding day are more than pixels on a screen, a social media share, or even an album. You will remember the experience; the moment you ran down the road together or had your partner push your hair back behind your ear and whisper something sweet or funny. Your photographs will only grow in value over time as they get passed down for generations. Your investment in photography goes beyond your wedding day.
I'm here for you. You want to feel comfortable and confident, and I will do everything in my power to get you there. I will go above and beyond to make sure your visions come to life as much as possible. I'm here however much you need me, and am always available and down to chat.
Trust and a go-with-the-flow attitude are key here, they unlock all the magic! I'll be there by your side cheering you on, and capturing every moment.
Once you book me it's time to dream and plan it all out! I'll give you all the help and tools, so we can kill it out there!
Let's set a date to meet up virtually or in person so we can get to know each other a little bit and talk about your vision for your engagement and wedding or elopement.
I’m based in both NYC and Los Angeles, but I’m available to travel anywhere!
Here is my tentative travel schedule so far for 2021 .
I have a few different packages to suit different budgets for wedding days, but a typical wedding day is 8 hours. An elopement day is 3 hours. Engagement shoots don't usually take more than 1.5 to 2 hours.
I’ve been a professional photographer since 2012.
YES!! I love being involved in the planning process. I am fully available via all types of communication in the months and days leading up to your wedding, and I’m here. to. help. After you book with me, I’ll send out a guide. A couple months out, we’ll begin to create a perfectly tailored timeline for your day so everything runs as smoothly as possible.
My style is warm and and saturated–cool, but also timeless. I strive for authentic moments of joy and intimacy.
You can trust me to take care of photographing the day beautifully. I’ll send out a questionnaire for you to fill out in the month leading up to your wedding, where you can give me important info and add anything you think might be helpful. I also love taking a peek at your Pinterest and chatting about your vision!
I can shoot any wedding alone, but I’m a big advocate for having a second photographer. It’s extra coverage, and there’s someone on the north side of the room getting anything that I’m missing on the south. Besides that, when you’re getting ready in different rooms, you each get a photographer to yourself! I have trusted photographers I work with as seconds who are wonderful and extremely talented.
I highly recommend an engagement shoot. It’s an opportunity for us to get to know each other, and you’ll feel more at ease on your wedding day.
OF COURSE!! We’ll check in multiple times via all communication forms and forge a great connection before working together.
My official turnaround is six weeks, but I’m usually done quite a bit sooner depending on my schedule. For engagements, my turnaround is two weeks on the books, but I’m usually done within a few days!
I consider myself a storyteller and that means that while I shoot thousands of photos on a wedding day, lots of magic is happening in the post processing, where I select and edit the images that will add to one all-around amazing impression of your wedding day. This second part is a huge part of the work that I'm doing. You can trust me to choose the imagery that represents you and your day best. That being said, if you think I skipped over something, I have every single image I take backed up and can always go back and check something out! I don't give a specific number, but you can expect roughly 50-100+ photos per hour of coverage, give or take.
I do not provide unedited photos.
I have an online gallery system through Pixieset where you can download and print as many unwatermarked high res images as you want. They’re JPGS.
We can either include an album in your package (recommended cause it’s cheaper!), or create one later. I have a recommended size and number of pages, but they’re fully customizable. I design the layout myself, we can proof it to make sure you dig it, and you can pick what type of cover you want. So many options!! The albums are STUNNING, and I highly recommend going through me rather than a big online company because the quality is just so much higher.
Easier said than done, but don’t be! We’re literally just going to hang out together. I’m going to be third wheeling, of course! It’s going to be super stress-free and fun and we’ll get to know each other. You're also welcome to bring whatever you need to feel more comfortable.
YES PLZ BRING YOUR PUPPER!!!
