My work can best be described as artistically inspired photojournalism. I cherish the beauty found in fleeting moments. I document real, authentic moments for couples who appreciate creativity and adventure. Are you looking for lots of photos of you and your boo-thing smiling at the camera? I’d kindly tell you I’m probably not the best fit. Are you looking for a photographer who will capture your natural dynamic in fun and authentic ways? That’s right up my alley.
Pick an environment that reflects you. The setting, location, and weather will effect the mood and photos drastically. Make sure you’re surrounded by what you love. I have loads of location ideas to share with you. I also encourage you to consider an “in-home session” where I’ll document your natural dynamic in the place you call home. These sessions provide a sense of intimacy not normally found in more public places.
My calendar fills up quickly! Please be sure to email me at least 8ish weeks before you’d like your engagement session. Know that certain times of the year (hello, autumn!) fill up more quickly than other times. Weekends are reserved for weddings and personal time, so engagement shoots are scheduled Mondays-Thursdays usually starting a couple hours before sunset.
We believe that photos are about feelings, not clothing. However, what you wear does affect the overall mood and “vibe” of the final product. I’d encourage you to throw a bunch of clothing in a bag that you both feel great in. Before we begin your session, I’ll help create an outfit or two that will photograph well given the setting. (You can also text me some outfit ideas beforehand to avoid bringing along a bag of clothing).
A couple extra clothing tips! Try to avoid busy patterns and thin stripes. Only one of you should be in a pattern at a time. Also, avoid bright colors. This can cause your skin tones to take on these colors in camera. Need some outfit ideas? Oh, I gotchu. Check out this Pinterest Board with Engagement Session Outfit Inspiration.
Totally fine by me! It’s great when couples select a location that’s near and dear to their hearts. The specific travel fee added will depend on the specific location you select. Understandably, the farther away the location, the larger the travel fee. The fee accounts for car wear-and-tear, gas, tolls, and time away from other business tasks and personal life.
About 2-3 weeks after your session. You’ll receive notification via email. All photos you receive will be edited in the style you see across my website. Some photos will be edited in black and white but the vast majority will be in color. These editing decisions are made based on our artistic discretion (this falls under the “Artistic Rights” paragraph of our agreement). If you have a photo in black and white and you’d like it in color as well, a re-edit fee may apply.
