WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH?
My approach to wedding photography is relaxed and fun because the more comfortable you both are, the more authentic your wedding images are going to be. I'm not just there to be your photographer; I'm there to guide you, ease your nerves, make you laugh, fix your hair, get you a shot, wrangle your groomsmen and everything else in between! I believe the best wedding photographers know when to step back and capture moments as they unfold just as much as they know when to step in and create stunning images worthy of being framed. I love photos that have movement and feel natural so I always refrain from too much posing. That said, I'll be giving you direction and prompts the entire time to make you feel at ease, keep the day going smoothly and make sure your genuine love and connection for one another shines through in the images.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED + DO YOU TRAVEL?
I'm located in Victoria, BC + available to travel anywhere on Vancouver Island.
WHAT KIND OF WEDDING + ELOPEMENT PACKAGES DO YOU OFFER?
I offer a variety of packages with coverage ranging from 2 to 12 hours. I have a separate price list and package options for Elopements, Intimate Weddings + Weddings. You can request my full 2021 price list here.
DO YOU INCLUDE ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS IN ANY OF YOUR WEDDING PACKAGES?
All my packages with 8 or more hours of coverage include an engagement session. It's the perfect way for us to get to know each other better so I can show up to your wedding feeling more like a friend than just another vendor!
DO YOU HELP US PLAN OUR WEDDING?
Absolutely! I can help you plan your wedding as much as you'd like me to. As soon as I am booked as your photographer, I am always available via text or email to answer any questions you have or offer advice. From location scouting to helping you plan your photography timeline, I've got you!
what is your style & what will the final product look like?
My style focuses on emotive storytelling and prioritizes human connection over perfection. I love images that feel artistic, dramatic and authentic and believe it takes more than a documentary approach to make you really feel the emotions of your wedding day all over again when looking back at your gallery. My goal is always to deliver a blend of candid moments, epic portraits set against stunning natural or architectural backdrops and creative images of every detail. I'm always looking for ways to play with light and space and love turning intimate moments into moving black and white images to pepper in. I pour every ounce of my artistic energy into each gallery that I deliver and am so freaking thrilled that this is what I get to do in life!
HOW DO YOU DELIVER OUR WEDDING IMAGES?
All of your wedding images will be delivered in a beautiful online gallery. This allows you to easily access, share and download your photos all from one place, as well as order prints and albums. I also always include a highlight gallery so that you can show your loved ones your photos without making them sit through 400!
HOW MANY WEDDING IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?
Storytelling is always my priority when creating your wedding gallery. I focus more on including all of the images that will tell the story of your wedding day in the most authentic and emotive way possible, rather than delivering a particular number of images. That said, I do guarantee 50 images per hour of coverage.
DO YOU DELIVER ANY RAW OR UNEDITED IMAGES?
I never deliver any raw or unedited images. All of the images you receive will be edited with care + consistent to my style.
HOW DO YOU BACK UP OUR WEDDING IMAGES?
As soon as I get home from photographing your wedding, I back up all of your images on to two separate hard drives as well as onto the cloud. Once your gallery is delivered, I guarantee keeping your images safe for one year. After that, it is up to you to ensure they are safely on a hard drive or usb or digitally backed up on a service such as dropbox, google photos or the cloud. (Or printed in a beautiful wedding album!)
What I love most about photography is it's way of turning fleeting moments that would have been lost or completely forgotten, into tangible memories that can be looked back on for a lifetime. There are so many small moments of human connection on your wedding day and your photographer will ultimately be the lens through which you remember those moments for the rest of your life.
