My goal is to always keep the experience as natural as possible. The best photos are always the real, candid, in-between moments. Decades from now, I want you to be able to look back at your images and instantly be transported to that same feeling you had when you married your best friend. I’m not afraid to make fun of myself or crack a few jokes to lighten the mood. I know how it feels to be in front of the camera, and normally that feeling is different for everyone. If you’re the type who may need more guidance, I have no problem stepping in to help direct and pose you without it feeling too forced or staged. Anything you need, I got your back!
HONEST COMMUNICATION & PLANNING
One of my brand values is open and honest communication. You deserve to have someone you can trust and have fun with to document your wedding. I’ve had over 10 years of experience in photography and have photographed over 350 weddings. I’ve learned a lot along the way and would love to share all of my helpful tips to ensure you have the best experience possible on your special day! I only book a limited number of weddings per year so I can give all of my couples the best experience and make sure each and every one of their weddings has my full attention. I deeply care about my couples and always keep open and honest communication with them throughout the entire experience. When it comes to lighting, posing, locations, advice, or creating a timeline, I will always be honest about how we can achieve the best results.
LOVE IS LOVE
Inclusivity, diversity, and compassion are extremely important to me. I am honored to photograph all couples, regardless of gender, sexuality, religion, or race and I can’t wait to celebrate with couples from all different walks of life! Everyone deserves to have the story of their love told!
PRICING & PACKAGES
I understand everyone has their own budget and I work with each couple individually to determine what best suits their needs. Pricing starts at $2800 but the door is always open to discuss our options to ensure we can work together. Being transparent is extremely important to me, so listing the starting price is to give you a sense of what you can expect to invest. I am all about communication, so if there’s anything you want to discuss, you’re always welcome to reach out with any questions!
BOOKING YOUR DATE
If you’ve looked around my site, enjoy my work, and are vibing with my approach, then it’s time to slide into the DMs! I’ll get back to you within 24 hours and we can set up a time to talk to get to know each other, discuss your vision, and answer any questions you may have. Once we’ve connected and made sure we’re the right fit for each other, we’ll send over a contract through our invoicing system. The retainer is 30% of your total package and the remaining 70% can be paid at any time, in any increments, up until a week before your wedding. Once the contract is signed and you’ve paid your retainer, your date is now in our calendar and we’re ready to start planning your day! 🙂
WHAT IF WE ARE AFFECTED BY COVID 19 OR HAVE TO POSTPONE?
My number one priority is always my couples and their health and safety. I’m waiving all rescheduling fees for any weddings impacted by COVID-19, whether you’re a current client or looking to book a date in the future.
Should you be faced with the tough decision of postponing, all I ask is that you consult with me (as well as other vendors involved) to nail down a new suitable date that works with everyone’s availability *before* you secure that date with your venue, so we can make sure we remain your trusted photographers. If you do have to postpone, I would be more than happy to transfer your payment to a new date at no extra cost. I purposefully do not overbook myself so I can ensure I am available for a variety of weekends should an emergency such as this arise.
HOW WILL OUR PHOTOS BE DELIVERED?
I provide all of my couples with a beautiful and easily accessible online gallery. Your photography will be posted in full resolution without watermarks and you will have the ability to download all of the images directly to your computer. You will also be able to share your photography with friends and family and even order prints directly through your gallery and have them shipped right to your doorstep. I also give my couples printing rights to their images for personal use, so you can feel free to order prints without having to go through me, yay! Images are delivered in JPEG format in color with black and white images mixed throughout.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Currently I am based in New Jersey but I travel to all of the tri-state area! If you're planning a destination wedding, I am just a plane ride away and my passport is ready! Feel free to contact me and we can work out a destination package!
DO WE GET ALL OF THE IMAGES?
Of course! The only images I will not be delivering are mid-blink or unflattering images that I know you will have no desire for. I go through all of the photography one by one to determine which are the absolute best, however, I do not cap how many images I shoot or deliver. Typically you can expect 50-150 photos per hour of coverage. There's no reason for me to leave out any important images that I've captured from your day! :)
CAN WE SEE A FULL WEDDING GALLERY?
Of course! I always make sure to send all couples who inquire a few full wedding galleries so you know what to expect!
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Absolutely! I am fully licensed and insured and happy to send a copy of our certificate of liability insurance to your venue or any other vendors upon request. I also make sure to bring backup camera equipment to each session or wedding that I photograph, as well as using two SD cards to back up your images in real-time to ensure I properly protect your memories.
I AM AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, IS THAT OKAY?
Yes! 99% of couples I've worked with and that you see on my site have never been photographed by a professional. I make sure to get to know each one of my couples to ensure they are relaxed and are comfortable come the wedding day. When shooting your portrait session or bridal party images, I like to offer a few prompts to get you all interacting in a genuine way and bring out real emotion. Engagement sessions are a great way to practice and get to know each other before the wedding!
