I'm located in Napa, California and I absolutely travel and would be more than happy to! Travel costs vary based on location.
I got my first "big kid" camera nine years ago when I was a junior in high school. I did my very first wedding in 2014 and have done many weddings since. In 2019, I had the pleasure of shooting 31 weddings.
ALL OF THEM. Large, small, religious, non-religious, same-sex, you name it. Love is love and I am here for it.
Absolutely. Family photos are super important on your big day! In the weeks before the wedding, I'll send a detailed questionnaire and you'll have the opportunity to list out all of the family/group photo combinations you want. This will allow me to help you allocate enough time in the timeline and help me get your family photos done quickly and efficiently at your wedding!
No no no, not at all. It's literally my job to guide you and capture your story, you don't need to stress about any of that.
Absolutely. We can work together to make sure we allocate enough time for everything you want!
Most of my wedding collections do include a second photographer. If you’re having a large wedding or the day is pretty fast-paced, I always advise my couples to invest in a second shooter to ensure that everything is captured and nothing gets missed on your big day. It also provides multiple perspectives - it’s a win-win!
Nope! When I hire a second shooter, I hire a skilled photographer. So when they agree to shoot with me, they’re turning away work for their own business so they do require a minimum fee associated with their services.
Absolutely! An engagement session is the best way to get comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding. We can also get to know each other! Getting to know you guys and how you interact with each other will help me better capture your personalities at the wedding.
A “day after” session is exactly what it sounds like – a portrait session the day after your wedding, or after your honeymoon if you’re heading out on an adventure right after your wedding! Many times photos of just the two of you can get rushed, especially if things start running late on your wedding day. If photos of you two are something that you want to prioritize, adding on a day after session allows you to do wedding portraits the day after your wedding so on the day of you can just focus on celebrating!
Most definitely. While I'm shooting, the images get saved onto two cards to ensure proper back up. Afterwards, your photos get saved onto multiple devices.
Yes! If your venue requires it, let me know and I can get you a certificate of insurance (COI).
Unfortunately I do not, but when you book me, you'll get access to my list of recommended vendors - including videographers.
Yes! For weddings, I require a $1500 non-refundable initial payment due at the time you sign our agreement. For elopements, I require a $750 non-refundable initial payment due at the time you sign our agreement. This payment reserves my time and I will no longer be advertising availability of this time to any other potential client.
Yes! After the initial payment, we can work out a payment plan that works for you - as long as your balance is paid in full a week before your wedding.
Most of my couples invest an average of $8,500 for wedding day coverage and an engagement session!
Absolutely! You can always add on rehearsal dinner coverage, a day after session, etc. after booking but I do recommend deciding sooner than later to ensure I’m still available!
Every wedding, elopement and session is different but on average, I tend to deliver 75+ photos per hour!
You'll receive your photos no later than two months from the date of your wedding. However, I totally understand the anticipation of seeing the photos so I do my best to deliver as soon as possible. You will also receive some "sneak peeks" shortly after the big day to quench your thirst for photos.
