Like I said, if you are looking for a wedding photographer who is just going to show up on your wedding day, take some photos, and then deliver them 6 months later, then you really shouldn't be here right now. I make it my number one goal for my clients to have f u n on their wedding day with me. With that being said, I won't take up your entire day by any means. I can work efficiently to ensure that you guys have the best day of your lives while still getting my perfect pictures. You get to focus on champagne and dancing, and who doesn't love that?!
When you book me for my laid-back but professional attitude, you are not just booking a wedding photographer, but a new friend!! You are investing in your love story by choosing someone who really wants to k n o w you guys. Your photos will come out naturally and in a manner that is unique to y'all as a couple.
SOME ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTIONS
We love your work! How can we book you?
Yay! Yay! I love y'all too! Send over your wedding details so that we can discuss those real quick, pop a deposit on over + sign the contract! I would love to get to know you before your wedding day also! In fact, do not hesitate if you would like to meet or chat on the phone first before booking. Having a relationship with you two prior to the wedding day is really important to me (and your wedding photos will be so much more unique + intimate).
Should we take engagement photos?
Yes! Your engagement session is an excellent opportunity for all of us to get to know one another and for y'all to get comfortable posing in front of a camera before the big day! You want your wedding photos to be natural and romantic. By taking engagement photos, you get the opportunity to feel out what kinds of poses feel natural to you. Plus, you get to get all cute and fancy and spend an evening doing nothing but being madly in love with one another.
Our wedding is not in Chicago, do you travel?
YES! So far, I've shot weddings in 5 different states but I am also looking to expand that list! International travel is available as well. As you can imagine, this type of booking is a little different so reach out and lets discuss itinerary, flights, lodging, etc. and I can give you a quote for travel. Fingers crossed for anything in Cali, Greece, Scotland, or NYC! Special discounts for weddings in Austin, Texas as this is my hometown and it would be a huge treat for me!
What is your editing style?
I describe my style as modern and clean. You deserve a wedding album that is honest + true to who you are as a couple with editing that is not trendy, won't go out of style and will be cherished in your family for years to come. My couples never receive their wedding albums and think, "Why is my skin so orange?" or "These weren't my wedding colors!". Instead they receive a diligently + beautifully captured and edited gallery with all of the love, intimate moments, and tearful laughs in a classically beautiful + elegant way.
What is your opinion on a first look?
I can't make you do anything on your wedding day but I do highly encourage that you two choose to do a first look before the ceremony. This gives you two a private, intimate chance to spend time with one another and usually helps you to be calmer during the ceremony. It also will allow SO much more time for your romantics and bridal party photos! Trying to cram all of that + family portraits during cocktail hour can be stressful and usually is not enough time. Plus, don't you want to celebrate immediately after you get married?! Hello, cocktails!
Do you offer video?
Yes, I partner with videographer, Joe Lotz, who also happens to be my boyfriend. Who better to document your story than another couple who is madly in love??
