I'M SO EXCITED TO MEET YOU!

I have a confession to make: I've never actually hired a photographer myself. If you're in the same boat, don't fret! Every experience is a bit different. I've put together some of my FAQs so that you can explore more about me and my process.

AND ANSWERS

Questions

I shoot as organically as possible - giving initial direction through specific poses and prompts and then letting you move into what's comfortable and natural for you. I utilize natural light and minimal editing to capture you at your best. My style is often described as confident, natural, fresh, and intentional.

What is your shooting style?

I encourage you to plan for two outfits - one casual and one a bit dressier. Neutrals such as blush, faint blues and greens, creams, and grays photograph best and will always result in more of a light and airy look to your images! Wear something that flatters the best parts of you and makes you feel confident!

What should I wear?

I shoot with a Canon 5D MKIV and prime L-series lenses. My go-to lens is my 50mm f/1.2, but I carry quite a few others in my bag!

What equipment do you use?

I reserve several days each month for weather makeups in the event that it rains on the day of your shoot.

What if it rains on the day of my shoot?

I guarantee delivery of your images within two weeks of your shoot.

How long will it take to receive my images?

Once your images are finalized, you will receive a link via email to an online gallery called PASS. From there, you can download your digital files and order prints straight from the website with no minimum order requirement!

How do I get my images?

Minted & TinyPrints are my personal favorites!

Where do you recommend ordering invitations or save-the-dates?
