By now, I'm sure I don't need to tell you that planning a wedding or an elopement can leave confused, overwhelmed, and even frustrated. Trust me, I totally feel you. It can be really confusing sometimes because there are so many ways to craft your wedding day (and you may not be totally sure of what you want yet!). So let me be the first to tell you, it doesn’t have to be this way!
Whether you're looking for a photographer for your wedding, elopement or couples session, I believe it's SO important to find you find the right photographer for you. In addition to loving their work, you should find a photographer that you vibe and connect with on a personal level.
/ finding beauty in the little things
/ embracing imperfection
/ doing things your own way
/ preserving all candid & heartfelt moments
My mission is to make sure that the whole planning process stress-free and worry-free. You will have help finding the perfect location/venue, the best vendors, and creating a perfect timeline that encompasses everything that matters to you. I promise to be your helping hand, your go to wedding expert, and your biggest fan!
knowing you could relive the excitement you felt as you got ready for your ceremony, the overwhelming sense of joy as you kissed the love of your life for the first time as a married couple, or the incredible energy as you danced the night away with your friends and family.
My number one goal as your wedding photographer is for you to be able to relive your day, exactly how it happened, every time you look back on your wedding/elopement photos.
I take a documentary style approach to photographing weddings and elopements. So what does that mean for you? It means I capture all the moments, no matter how big and small, surrounding your day. I especially love capturing those candid, heartfelt, in-between moments that really exemplify how special and one-of-a-kind your relationship is.
It's really important that I get to know my couples on a more personal level. Every couple is unique and I want your photos to truly look and feel like who you are as a couple. Not everyone feels like a natural in front of the camera, but whether you're the kind of couple who is always laughing and playing around with each other or the kind of couple who loves intimate moments together, I'll give you prompts that will help bring out your true, authentic selves. I promise to jump in and give your direction when needed (like what to do with your hands or let you know a piece of hair is out of place) and I also know when to step back and just let you two do your thing.
My goal is to make you and your partner feel super relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Instead of sticking you in stiff, awkward poses, I like to focus on movement based prompts that will encourage you to naturally connect with your partner. We can take things at your pace, add your favorite songs to my playlist, whatever it may be to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
01/ Initial Inquiry
02/ Book a call
You'll reach out by filling out an inquiry form, which can be found on my website under the Book Me page. There, you'll give me all the deets about your day (the more detail you give me, the better I can serve you) and I'll send you my full pricing guide.
We'll find a time to FaceTime or Zoom and talk more in depth about your wedding day! This is also a great chance for us to get to know each other and make sure we are a good fit for one another!
03/ Official Booking
Once we decide that we're a good match, I will send you my contract and invoice. After signing the contract and paying a 50% retainer fee, your date will be officially booked!
05/ Wedding day
This is the fun part! I'll send you questionnaires and guides that will get you thinking about what you want your wedding day to look like. We'll also chat multiple times throughout the planning process to create your wedding timeline and craft a day that aligns with your vision.
IT'S FINALLY HERE!!! This is your time to relax, be present, and enjoy your magical day with all your loved ones. I'll be there documenting all the special moments, big or small, and make sure that everything runs smoothly.
06/ Image Delivery
AKA time for me to obsess over how gorgeous you look! I am to deliver my wedding galleries within 6-10 weeks, but don't worry, I'll be sending you some sneak peeks within a few days so that you can see just how beautiful you and your partner looked!
01/ Where are you based and do you travel for shoots or weddings?
I am based in New York City, but I am always down to travel for weddings/elopements and couples sessions. To ensure that all my couples get my absolute best, I limit the number of destination sessions I take each year so reach out ASAP if you're thinking of having a destination wedding/elopement or session.
02/ My partner and I have never had professional photos taken and we're a little nervous, is that okay?
That is TOTALLY okay! Most of the couples I work with have never gotten their photos professionally taken. I totally understand that getting your picture taken can be kind of scary, which is why I work really hard to make sure you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible during our shoot. To learn more about what it's like to work with me, check out my Experience page!
03/ How long will it take to get our photos and how do you deliver them?
It typically takes me anywhere 2-4 weeks to deliver couples session galleries and 6-10 weeks to deliver wedding/elopement galleries. Don't worry, I will keep you updated on the process. I deliver all galleries through an online platform called Pixieset. You will be sent a link to the gallery via email and will be able to download them from there!
04/ Are you vaccinated against COVID-19?
I am vaxxed and boosted. Your health and safety is very important to me which is why I am up to date on the vaccine and will get any boosters that come out in the future!
05/ Are our images safe with you?
I'm glad you asked! I shoot all my sessions on two SD cards, store all the images on two hard drives, upload all images to the cloud, and keep all images on the original SD cards until I deliver your gallery. I also store one of the SD cards and hard drives in a fire/water proof safe. Call me crazy, but I'd rather not leave losing your images to chance!
