Any engagement photographer can stage a few casual family scenes, snap a few shots of the happy couple in staged poses, and then call it a day. But that’s just the beginning of the process of telling the story of your relationship
I’m a wedding photographer, but also a photojournalist and storyteller who cares about bringing out the best in people.
Or to be more plainly, what I love isn’t so much the wedding itself so much as awesome couples coming together to create something special.
You don’t want a stranger running around, telling you where to stand and when to smile. Instead, you want a friend — and trust me, by the time you have your photos, we’ll be connected through social media, we’ll have talked a bunch online and/or in person, and we will be great friends! — who knows how to capture every special moment, glance and smile, and will be on hand with perfect timing and expert touch to catch the true beauty that is your relationship, for you to have and to hold for generations to come.
As a wedding and engagement photographer, I’ve helped hundreds of couples over the years capture and keep all the special moments from their special day. Here are some samples of my work. I have lots more. Let me know if there’s anything specific you would like to see and I can pour through the archives.
I want to get to know you, and understand your vision. Before booking, I offer a free video consultation so we can learn more about one another! This allows us to connect on a deeper level so I can provide you with the most spectacular images on your big day.
The image count is completely dependent on the unique proceedings of each elopement. My goal is always to represent your elopement as authentically as possible through dynamic imagery. On average, assuming you plan to engage in all the traditional customs, I typically deliver around 60-80 images every hour I cover your wedding.
I aim to get all your images edited and delivered to you as quickly as possible while sticking to the gold standard my clients expect from me. Two weeks after we say goodbye we’ll have Sneak Peeks ready for you to look over. We strive to have all your images available in a curated gallery online 45 days after the wedding at the latest.
All of your images are YOURS to keep as soon as I deliver them to you at no charge! After receiving your images in gallery form, you can download them and have them printed by whoever you like! Your gallery will also include a few printing lab recommendations as well.
Yes! If you plan on surprising your partner with a romantic proposal, we’ll coordinate it so that I’ll be hidden right up until the big moment. I’ll capture your partner’s amazement when you get on one knee to pop the question. This is a memory you’ll want to relive as you plan your wedding and for years afterward! You can show instead of tell your friends and family exactly what the engagement was like – and you can use your images for wedding announcements, invitations, and social media.
You get the chance to see what your hair and makeup will look like! A great way to remove all the guesswork about how you’ll look is to have your hair and makeup done during your engagement photoshoot. You’ll be able to see how you look in your chosen style and decide if you’d like to make any hair and makeup changes before your wedding day.
