I use a site called Pixieset to create an online gallery where you can select your favorite photos, download your images, and order prints, albums, and wall art. Digital photos are delivered in about 6-8 weeks and you can expect approximately 50 photos per hour of coverage. Once delivered, your photos will be available online for 1-2 months. Prints and albums will be designed and put in production after digital photos are delivered and you choose your favorites.
Yes! I'm based in Orange County, CA, but I love to explore new places. I'd love for you to reach out no matter where you live! For details on travel expenses, please contact me as costs can vary based on time of year, the destination, and if there are any additional events to be covered. If your location is on my bucket list, you may qualify for a special deal! My bucket list can be found on my travel page.
A contract and retainer fee is required for all sessions and events and is due at the time of booking. The contract can be viewed and signed online, and confirms that I am officially reserving your date and we can start taking the next steps together. For wedding and elopement collections, $1000 is required at signing, and then the remaining balance can be split into a payment plan or paid in a single payment. For a la carte sessions, 50% of the total session fee is required at the time of signature to hold the date, and the remainder is due one week prior to your session.
Of course! I've worked with many amazing videographers over the years that I would be happy to recommend. I can also help you find DJs, makeup artists, florists, bakers, dress boutiques, and any other vendor you may still be looking for!
My favorite time to shoot is right before and after sunset (what we photographers like to call "golden hour" and "blue hour"). This time of day is perfect for soft lighting that flatters everyone's features. It's great for couples' sessions, weddings, and portraits. For some stylized sessions, I also like to shoot earlier in the day with harsher lighting for a bolder effect.
