DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
You bet! Traveling is a huge passion of mine. I have a special place in my heart for destination/ elopements since that is what my husband and I chose for our wedding day. I give custom quotes & discounts for weddings outside of the Midwest. I love a good adventure. No distance is too close or too far. I love adeventures.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?
My style is good balance between fine art and photojournalism. I thrive off of non-traditional settings with clients who trust me and don't expect to be looking directly into my camera to often.
DO I RECEIVE ALL MY IMAGES?
Yes. You will receive all your post processed images through an online gallery where you, your friends and family will have access to download all the files.
WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
My ideal client is a laid-back couple crazy in love who isn't afraid of doing their own thing when it comes to planning their wedding. A couple who believes their marriage is more important than the details of their wedding day, A couple that doesn't need a reason to hop on a plan and go somewhere new. A couple who is invested in their legacy, not just the imagery surrounding it, but the real thing.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH PER YEAR?
Anywhere from 10-15. I do not like to take on to many and I am very intentional about that. What your getting with me is an experience, not a cookie cutter investment. I want to get to know you for real and I just cannot do that if I take on everyone.
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE? AND DO YOU HAVE BACKUPS?
I use professional Nikon gear and have backups. I carry with me state of the art lighting equipment that insures I am able to capture any moment through-out the day. On location your images are backed up right inside of my camera on a second SD card. At home your images are then backed up to 2 external hard drives and to one I leave off site. You can never be too careful. Needless to say, your images are safe with me.
HOW DO I MOVE FORWARD TO BOOK WITH YOU?
In order to reserve your date, we chat in person or Skype over a beverage to make sure we are a good match. After the consult, I send over an agreement. You will need to send back a signed agreement with a 50% of the collection total
WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM THE REST?
Lets begin by telling you what I am not. I am not the photographer that shoots rapid fire at everything and anything. I am very purposeful about the images I capture. I grew up studying art (read my bio for the full story). I spent years studying the history of painters, architects, photographers and designers. I graduated with a Fine Art degree and have studied light, composition, line and all the components that factor in to creating art. That is exactly what I bring to each client. ART. That is the difference between a photographer that knows how to use a camera and one that knows how to see through a camera. I am very intentional about each frame I photograph and the post processing that goes into it. I think the biggest compliment is when couples feel very comfortable with me and when clients make memories during out time together. I truly believe this is why when you look through my galleries you feel a sense of who each couple truly is, almost as if you were present with them. and that is something I pride myself on.
