the in-between moments
My philosophy is to document stories as they happen. The in-between moments, the little things that make up the big picture. When it comes to your wedding and family photography there are two elements to me that make it authentic. 1. Being comfortable with the photographer and 2. Catching the relationship between you. We remember life as a big string of events, wedding photos or no different-the traditional focus on weddings is by defining those events, the first kiss, cutting the cake, first dance. I like to do that all, but I am more interested in getting the unscripted moments. The little glances exchanged during the ceremony, a hand on your arm. This is what true documentary wedding photography is all about. Of course, I am sure to get the group photo’s, because those are the ones that you will enjoy looking at twenty years from now. However, I will guide you into group pictures, without scripting you too much. If you feel stiff I’ll relax you gently guiding you, either to make you feel more natural, or to help everyone feel like they can be themselves. It is my goal to capture the relationships, the day as it happened, in a beautiful and artful way.
There are a lot of factors that go into giving you a quote for your wedding, location, distance, amount of hours, albums, and other deliverables. I give each client a custom quote and proposal. Most couples invest $4000-$5000 into their wedding photography. I offer albums, fine art prints, and a USB drive, or digital download. I offer engagement sessions, designer gallery wall framing, and more! I’m sure you have loads of questions, and i’m happy to answer them. Feel free to reach out I’d be happy to send you over quote!
YOUR FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
When is the last time you had your family photographed? Family photography doesn’t have to be stiff or even posed. I photograph families in a documentary style, which means i’ll capture you just as you are. I want to find and capture the personalities and quirks of your kids, the chaos of everyday life, and the quiet moments in between. I’ll also grab a few semi-posed family photos too if you’d like, but ultimately I want you to all relax and just have fun. I offer documentary family photography sessions ranging from one hour long all the way up to a full day – from the time your kids wake up to when they go to bed.
Q: Do you provide the high-res images to us?
A. YES, always, about a month after your wedding date you will receive a USB drive. Unless you would prefer to download images right to your computer. I’m all for going green and creating less carbon waste!
Q. What do I need to do to book you?
A: A deposit of 50% is required when you sign a digital contract/ *I accept all major credit cards, Debit cards and checks.
Q: Do you have a second photographer?
A: I shoot every wedding on my own! You are hiring me for my eye, and my point of view and aesthetic. Generally speaking, unless you are having a larger wedding I recommend hiring a talented videographer, rather than spending extra money on a second photographer. Should you need a second photographer I will make one available to you through a talented pool of second shooters that I know. I may on some occasions be traveling with an assistant, who will be there to help out, and sometimes shoot some candids!
