how long have you been photographing weddings?
I photographed my first wedding in 2009 and I’ve been addicted ever since.

what made you choose weddings?
to be totally honest, I don’t know what drove my initial decision. I don’t remember. All I know is that the reason I still choose weddings is simple. The authenticity. The emotions that everyone feels on a wedding day are so beautiful to me and I can’t help but get swept away every single time.

who is your second shooter?
it varies. Typically, about two months before the wedding I will reach out to my network of trusted colleagues. Keep in mind, these are not newbies who are looking to build their portfolio. These are seasoned pros who have shot just as many weddings (if not more) as I have.

how long does it take to receive the wedding photos?
about 6-8 weeks. sometimes earlier, but never later. during wedding season is when it can take up to 8 weeks but I find that my average is about 6.

how many photos will we get?
anywhere between 400-600.

can we print the photos?
please please please print my work! you receive the high resolution, watermark free images because I want to encourage clients to have tangible memories of their wedding day. so whether you want to purchase prints through my professional printing company, or print them yourself you are able to do so.

what kind of camera do you use?
I have two Canon 5D Mark IIIs and a couple film cameras that I like to play around with occasionally.

can we share the photos on social media?
absolutely! so much of my business comes from referrals from past brides, so I love when people share their photos. the only thing I ask is that you don’t put any Instagram filters over the photos. I take a lot of pride in the time and love I put into editing your photos to perfection and I want to show off that hard work!

do you travel?
YES. everywhere. anywhere. but I will most likely need a flight and hotel and a car.

how many weddings do you shoot in a year?
between 20-25. any more than that would take too much time away from my husband and two kids and although I love what I do, I like having time for my family, too 🙂
