Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)2024-01-19T16:05:56+00:00


You have questions… I have answers.

The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do. – Andy Warhol

Are you LGBTQ friendly?2024-06-08T04:15:10+00:00

Hell yes. I want to make everyone feel comfortable with me. I’m. not only an LGBTQ friendly wedding photographer, but I’m also an advocate and an outspoken ally in my personal life. It’s important for me that my clients never have to experience coming out to me in any way. Everyone should see themselves in my photos and never have to ask me if I’m an LGBTQ friendly photographer. My goal is that it should be evident in my site, my life, and my photos. And if it’s not, I’m not doing my job right.

How do you feel about diverse backgrounds and traditions?2024-01-17T22:29:48+00:00

Absolutely! Diversity is the spice of life, and your wedding is a celebration of just that. Whether it’s cultural, religious, or a mix of everything fabulous, count on me to capture and honor the uniqueness of your love story.

How can I be sure you’ll groove with our unique love story?2024-01-17T22:28:23+00:00

Your love story is like no other, and I’m here to celebrate that! Before the big day, let’s connect. Share your vision, your quirks, and the little moments that define your journey. I’m all ears, ready to make your love shine.

How much time will I spend with my photographer?2018-12-12T17:23:08+00:00

I’ve added this question to my FAQ’s, even though it’s not asked that often, because I feel that it’s important to understand that your photographer is the person you’re probably going to spend THE most amount of time with outside of the wedding planner who’s scheduling vendor meetings and designing your big day.

Excluding the time spent with you on your Engagement Session, your photographer will spend 8-12 continuous hours with you on your wedding day.  I feel that it’s important to not only know if your photographic artist has the experience and skills to capture your wedding, but that your personalities mesh.  Believe it or not, who you decide to work with reflects in your expressions throughout the day.

Can you help me find a location for my session?2024-01-17T22:25:13+00:00

Absolutely! Think about places that have meaning to the two of you as a couple. Where your first date was, what you like to do in your free time, or what the two of you enjoy doing together. I like to think outside of the box sometimes when it comes to your pictures and include things that mean something to you like a brewery, a park, your family’s land, etc.

If you are unable to include these personal elements, I will work with you to come up with a place that has the right aesthetic for who you are as a couple. Some people are more urban and like downtown settings, some couples enjoy the outdoors and parks, and some couples like to mix it up and include both types of places. We will work together to find the right fit for you.

How soon should I book you?2018-12-11T17:23:10+00:00

Book your photographer as soon as you find them and you have a wedding date confirmed. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to disappoint someone because they wanted to wait for one reason or another. Shop around for your photographer ASAP. Check their Social Media feeds, their testimonials, and their reviews. Find someone who fits your style, budget, and personality.

I book up as early as a year and a half out and I book on a first come first served basis. Once that date is booked, it’s rare that it opens up again.

What makes my photography stand out?2024-01-19T19:52:23+00:00

My portfolio speaks for itself. Iʼm good at what I do. The story my portfolio doesnʼt tell is how I keep the day moving. We start by communicating pre-wedding about your timeline. I ask questions to find out what are your priorities on your wedding day as far as pictures go. I draft a photo timeline and then work with your coordinator or planner to make sure we make the most out of our time together. Throughout the wedding day Iʼm focusing on what I know matters to you and Iʼm constantly pivoting and keeping the ball rolling. Iʼm making sure youʼre comfortable, youʼre happy, and youʼre not stressed or anxious. If we get off on the timeline, thatʼs my problem not yours. I make everything work no matter how stressful things get. I think on the fly and Iʼm always one step ahead. This kind of stuff only comes with experience and a natural intuition. Anyone can learn to take a picture but not everyone is good at managing time wisely and keeping everyone happy and relaxed.

Why should I choose a documentary wedding photographer?2024-01-17T22:20:47+00:00

Opting for a documentary wedding photographer means capturing your story in all its glorious authenticity. I specialize in snapping candid, unscripted moments—the real heart of your celebration, embracing all the unique aspects that make your day one-of-a-kind. Sure, I’ll tell you how to stand to look your best but I strive for natural smiles and comfortable body language so I’ll mostly be giving you things to laugh about. As for your family, I’ll make them feel like I’m a part of the family too. Everyone will love me.
