YOU + US
I want to learn whatever I can about the two of you before we meet. If you care to share your "meet cute" I'd love to hear it. From our first conversation I'll ask a few questions to get to know what your wishes are, and how you see the day going. What images are most important to you, and what images are not. When we speak or meet in person we will go over a timeline, which I will coordinate with your wedding planner. I work closely with your other vendors to make sure that everything goes seamlessly.
I take on a limited amount of weddings each year. This allows me to really form a bond with you. From your timeline to vendor picks, I am available anytime via text, email or phone. I understand that this is a unique relationship, I know I am a big part of your wedding day. For that reason I am honored to be able to document your story.
HOW I WORK
My clients have described me as laid back, more like a friend than a vendor. I am going to capture all the moments, small and large that make-up your day. Telling the unique story of your love, so you can replay it in your mind for years to come. I am good at being a fly on the wall, without being obtrusive, allowing me to get those in-between-moments.
The Day Of
Each wedding is as unique as the couples I have had. But here is a general idea of how I would work on a full wedding-day package. I show up early and love to take lots of landscape and detail shots. I'll take some candid pictures of you getting ready, mom helping you into the dress, the dog running underfoot, the carefully picked out bridesmaids bouquets. I'll capture all the nuances of pre-wedding excitement.
I am able to get most of my group shots before the ceremony, and work on timeline that is pretty straightforward. I want to get most of the group shots first, so that you can enjoy the reception afterwards, and I don't have to pull you away for too long. I always do some first look pictures should you decide to go that route. I also like to spend 20-30 minutes after the ceremony for some bride and groom portraits in a special outdoor setting. Away from the guests, and give you a chance to enjoy your first moments of a married couple. From there its party pictures, candids, guests, dancing, cake!
I consider myself pretty lucky to live full time in a place most people consider a vacation destination.
