WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF?
I'm located in the the good 'ole Midwest. I grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana but if you need me to travel, I totally will. I have an RV and am pretty darn good at driving it. I dream of the time where I will be able to live in my camper and travel the world photographing weddings.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My photography is real. I present the raw emotion of life, adventure, and excitement that happens when you're about to marry the one you love. My photos unfold naturally. There's no posing, no special lighting getup. I like to think of myself as a fly on the wall the entire day, until it's time for the posed portraits. I want to document the unique story that your wedding day and capture the beautiful, fun and organic images that your love and wedding day will create.
Do you have a second shooter?
DO YOU DO ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Of course I do! It gives me an opportunity to get to know you and you the opportunity to learn my shooting style and get comfortable in front of the camera. If you book a wedding with me, an engagement shoots is complimentary because I feel it's THAT important to get comfortable with each other, and I love shooting them so much!
WHAT ARE YOUR WEDDING PACKAGE RATES?
Full-day coverage starts at $2,500. Contact me for detailed information about packages.
WHAT DOES FULL-DAY COVERAGE MEAN?
I'm there during from the time you start putting your hair and makeup on, until the wee hours of the night (if necessary) when the party starts to die down. When the wedding day is a few weeks out, we'll meet up to discuss a photo timeline for your day and figure out exactly what you need.
HOW DO WE BOOK WITH YOU?
I love to meet with my couples in person if possible! I'm all for getting together for wine, milkshakes, or coffee to chat about your day and your photography needs. We'll discuss a contract and a $500 deposit is due at the time of the signing to officially seal the deal.
When will we RECEIVE our photos?
For engagement sessions, you'll have photos within 2 weeks. For weddings, you'll receive color corrected and professionally edited photos delivered to you within 1 month. I post sneak peeks of sessions and weddings on my website and social media within a week or so of the shoot. Your photos will be delivered via a personal online gallery where you can download the high-resolution pictures, share on social media, or send the gallery to friends.
WHAT IS A FIRST LOOK?
A first look is a few minutes before the ceremony that you and your future spouse get to be alone, and see each other for the first time. This is by all means not necessary, but definitely something to think about. The dream of every couple is to see each other for the first time as the bride walks down the aisle. It's traditional, romantic, and exciting. But so is a first look. It allows you to be YOU. You both see each other, can spend time with each other, and are hidden away from all the chaos of the wedding day. It allows you to really lay eyes on each other for an extended amount of time, instead of just the 20 second walk down the aisle.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE?
On average I usually deliver between 500-800 photos for a full wedding.
Do you sell albums?
Uh, yes! The albums are gorgeous, thick-paged, leather bound books. It's the first family heirloom that you and your spouse will have, so I work extra hard to create a perfect album that can sit on your coffee table for years and years to come.
ARE YOU USING SOCIAL MEDIA?
Yes! Look at the bottom of the page for connections!
