Let’s talk budget.

But first — I want you to know this:

 

Okay hear me out — choosing a wedding photographer is kind of like shopping for a new pair of jeans. There’s no one-size-fits-all situation, it can be stressful at times, and at the end of the day all you really want is to find the pair that makes you feel like a million bucks. But when you find that perfect pair - you know it + you FEEL it. I think finding your wedding photographer is pretty dang similar.

If photography is just another box to check off on your wedding to-do list, we probably aren’t the best fit and that’s okay! In order to do my job the best that I possibly can, I want to be more than just another vendor on your wedding day. I want it to feel like I’m a good friend helping you along the way — bonding with the bridal party, getting the dance floor started, and shedding a few tears when you walk down the aisle. I want to be there to calm your nerves and make sure that the only thing you're focused on is what truly matters -your soon-to-be husband/wife and the amazing day ahead.

When it comes to your wedding, you’re not just spending money on the “things”; you’re spending money on creating an incredible experience for your family, friends, + guests to celebrate your love. While you’re thinking about all of that, I want you to think about what you’ll have to look back on after it’s all over. Photos are timeless. They’re our way of looking back on moments that matter, even when we’ve long forgotten the details. You’ll show them to your future babies and reminisce when you + your spouse get old and grey. This is in the back of my mind at every single wedding I photograph. That’s why I do what I do. It doesn’t matter to me what designer dress you wear, or what type of flowers you use for centerpieces, or whether you want to get married on top of a mountain, in your backyard, or at city hall. I care about you. I care about your story, and I care about capturing it authentically + beautifully.

You deserve a photographer who is just as excited about your wedding day as you are. That being said, I totally understand if you see these prices & they aren’t where you wanted to be. Let’s talk about it! If you’re truly not just shopping around for the best price, and feel an honest connection to me + my work, we can probably make something happen.

you've got questions, I've got answers

 
Question: 
 
Answer:
 

How will we receive our images? Can we print them ourselves?

 

All of your images are delivered as high-res, digital files in an online gallery for easy downloading + sharing! Please print them, share them, and ENJOY! All contracts include a print release, so you are free to print on your own! I also offer prints through a professional service which you can easily order straight from the gallery.

 

When will we receive our images? How many will we get?

 

You’ll receive a lil sneak peek from your session or wedding within 24 hours, so you have something to hold ya over while I work hard on editing every image. For couples/engagement sessions/portraits, my turnaround time is 2-3 weeks. All weddings are delivered within 6-8 weeks. I’ll always keep you posted on exact delivery times so you’re not left hangin’! I appreciate your patience while I work hard to edit each image carefully by hand. I will deliver every good photo I think you’ll want! I won’t withhold anything - if it’s a quality image, it’s going in your gallery. With that said, I average 75-150 for an engagement session and 600-800 for an 8 hour wedding day.

 

Help!!! We’re so awkward in front of the camera!

 

It's totally normal to feel a little nervous about having your photo taken - I've been there and completely understand! I promise I'll do everything in my power to help you feel at ease and look your best. You can expect to run around, let your hair down, and laugh a whole lot - & I'll take it from there! Every single person I’ve ever photographed has said they were awkward and couldn’t believe how relaxed they ended up feeling. Trust me, I’ve got you!

 

What kind of gear do you shoot with? Do you have a back-up just in case?

 

Heck yes I have a back-up, always! I shoot with professional Nikon gear. I have a variety of lenses + never leave my house without my backup camera

 

Where are you located? Do you travel?

 

I am based in San Francisco, California and heck yes I travel! My couples this year are taking me all over the states including Massachusetts, New York, Vermont, Oregon, and internationally to Tulum, Italy, + Bermuda! I’d be honored to travel for your celebration. Contact me for travel fees & a custom quote!

 

Do we need a second shooter for our wedding?

 

I'm confident in my ability to shoot all of my weddings solo, but a second photographer helps make sure that absolutely no moment is missed. If you have tons of guests, or you and your partner are getting ready in two separate locations, a second photographer ensures you each have the same amount of photos and I'm not rushing around to be with you both! We can chat about if this option is right for you during a quick consultation call!

 

What do I wear to my shoot?

 

I have a what to wear guide I’ll send over to help you out, plus a pretty great Pinterest board too!
