Congratulations on your upcoming Wedding!
I am thrilled that you are interested in choosing me to document your special day!
I'd love to connect and hear all about what you envision for your day.
How long will it take to get my photos?
Typically I average a 2-3 week turnaround time for the completion of edited online galleries.
How many photos will I get?
This depends on many variables - the number of guests, hours of coverage, how comfortable you are in front of the camera. I average 50-75 edited images per hour, so for an 8 hour wedding you can expect to receive 400-600 edited images (although it can be more depending on how the day unfolds, and whether a second shooter is present.)
Do you instruct for posing?
YES. I pose you from head to toe. Just sit back and relax, I will gently direct you both, so there is no need to worry about how to stand, where to look and where to place your hands. I suggest scheduling an engagement session with me as it helps ensure both of you will be more relaxed in front of the camera. When couples get their images back, they’re much more confident and relaxed about being photographed on their wedding day.
What is your photography style?
My style is light, airy and timeless. I tend to gravitate towards softer, delicate, natural and clean images. If you're looking for moody images, I'm not your photographer! I shoot both journalistic and posed images. I'd suggest factoring into your timeline one hour (or more) throughout the day for bride and groom photos only. Away from your guests to capture posed images of you together. These are the ones that will be on your walls for years to come. I love to capture small details such as your getting ready details, special signs, centrepieces, etc. Family formals are posed, while images of your reception are unposed. I'd prefer to capture spontaneous photos of you and your guests laughing, dancing, and enjoying themselves.
Do you bring a second shooter to the wedding?
I do not unless it is requested and paid for by the bride and groom.
Should I provide a shot list?
Yes and no. A shot list is helpful to know which relatives and friends you'd like photos with so we can stay organized and I can call out their names. Other than the family/friends groupings, I will generally capture any images without prompting and I prefer to capture the rest of your day how I see fit.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use a Canon R6 and a backup Canon Mark III. My main lens is a Canon 50mm 1.2 lens (which stays on my camera body 90% of the day), a 70-200mm 2.8 lens (for sneaky ceremony shots), and a Canon 24-70mm 2.8 (for when it's too tight to shoot with my 50mm!) I prefer to shoot in natural light, but at dusk I will retrieve my two Canon 600 Speedlite flashes.
What happens if you get sick or injured and can’t photograph me?
I will ensure you have a replacement photographer at a similar skill level, however this would be an extremely rare case.
When should we book you for our wedding?
ASAP. I do not hold dates without a signed contract and deposit. :)
