You're not a professional model, so why should anyone expect you to feel comfortable with a camera in your face?
My job is so much more than snapping away on my camera. As your photographer, my biggest priority at a session is to ensure you feel comfortable, heard, and that you have some fun! I have a little speech I like to give before every session - the first 10-15 minutes are the "warm-up" (there she goes again with that CrossFit stuff *eye roll*). During those first fews shots we get to know each other, and you get a sense of what it feels like to be prompted with me all up in your grill.
Before you know it, you'll be relaxed and laughing at my terrible jokes! I also bring a speaker so we can play some of your favorite jams while we WERK IT. The end results? Gorgeous prompted shots. Cute candids. Hopefully some inside jokes. ;)
you got a problem? yo, I'll solve it.
I am in your corner throughout the process! No matter what your question is, I am here to help you find the answer. I'm always available via email, phone, carrier pigeon...whatever works best for you!
Frequently asked questions
I am so awkward in front of a camera, are you sure the pictures will look good?
I get this question a LOT! Like I said above, it's only human to feel awkward with a big ol' lens in your face. The good news is, I love what I do and I like to think I am pretty good at it. ;) During a session, I will guide you when needed and other times I'll just let you do your thang while I snap away. Either eay, don't worry about how you think you look - I've got this. I will make you look goooooood, pinky promise.
Do I really need a second shooter?
It depends! I guide my couples based on how big their wedding is, how long they've booked me for, and what their priority shots are. If you love details and getting ready shots, then I'd say you should highly consider adding on a second!
How long does it take to get my photos back?
For sessions, it's a two week turnaround time. For weddings, six weeks. Rome wasn't built in a day! ;)
Do you work with LGBTQ+ couples?
YES YES AND MORE YES! Love is love. It is an honor for me to share all different kinds of love stories. Your love is just as valuable, important and beautiful as any other couple.
How do we get our photos, and can we print them?
I deliver my photos through a digital gallery. The invitation will go to your email, and from there you'll have access! You'll be able to download all your photos, in a variety of sizes/resolutions, and have full print rights. My gallery also has an online store where you can order prints right from there!
