    H E L L O B E A U T I F U L !

    Congrats on your engagement! You are in for an incredible adventure and Id be

    absolutely thrilled to be a part of it.

    As a recent bride myself, I know how much thought and energy goes into planning

    every detail of a wedding. You put blood, sweat, and tears (lots of tears, lets be

    honest) into crafting and planning your perfect day. So its my goal to fully docu-

    ment all of those details, the heart behind them, and the celebration surrounding

    it all. Moreover, your love story deserves to be beautifully captured on camera

    by someone dedicated to getting to know you and the moments that make your

    relationship truly special. Thats why choosing the right photographer is one of the

    most important investments youll make for your day, and Im here to help make

    that decision a bit easier.

    So please take a look through this guide to get a better feel for my work, my style

    and workflow, and get to know a little about who I am as an artist. Im honored

    youve reached out to me and I cant wait to hear more about you and your big day!

    Ive been an artist my entire life. From the moment I could pick up a pencil, the

    creative and eccentric world inside my head just spilled out onto paper, either

    through storytelling, drawing, or painting. My proclivity for artistic expression bled

    into other mediums and I soon fell in love with photography at around 13-years-

    old (thanks Dad for letting me play with the family camera!). I began freelancing

    professionally at age 16 when I transformed my early explorations of self-portrai-

    ture into a booming photography business. Over the last handful of years, I mostly

    worked within the music scene, photographing metalcore bands and document-

    ing grungy tattooed dudes on tour. Recently, these guys started settling down and

    getting married, and it only seemed natural for the girl who used to photograph

    their sweaty stage performances to now capture their weddings. Its something I

    never would have imagined doing before, but this type of photography has com-

    pletely stolen my heart. I love getting to work with such fun and extraordinary

    couples as we create beautiful, unforgettable art together.

    As someone with a few quirks myself, Im all about creating photos that reflect my

    couples distinct personalities and interests, and capture the uniqueness of their

    love. I like working with people who appreciate art, value photography, and arent

    afraid to brainstorm on some crazy ideas.

    In addition to being a photographer, I am also a graphic designer, lifestyle blogger,

    Jesus lover, connoisseur of zombie movies, collector of curiosities, antique store /

    flea market vulture, In-N-Out Burger addict, and newly married to my charmingly

    dorky Star-Wars-loving-drum-playing high school sweetheart.

    I absolutely LOVE engagement sessions. Theyre one of my favorite parts about

    photographing weddings. Sessions are always so much fun and the final photos

    are such a stunning and unique reflection of your love story. Its also a perfect

    opportunity for us to get to know each other better and for you both to get com-

    fortable in front of my camera before the wedding day. I truly believe engagement

    sessions make better wedding photos. They act as a practice round Ill learn

    more about the ways you naturally interact in your relationship, and youll learn

    how to pose and flirt organically on camera. Then on the big day, youll be pros!

    A typical engagement session lasts about 2 hours, and we meet up at a location of

    your choosing (or I can offer recommendations) a few hours before sunset. We call

    this golden hour and the lighting is nothing short of magical. Most often I shoot

    outdoors in fields or wooded areas, but if theres a particular place or style thats

    special to your relationship, let me know! Sessions are super casual and relaxed,

    and Ill direct you the whole way through and make sure youre 100% comfortable

    and looking your absolute best!

    TIPS

    + Engagement photos are perfect for save-the-dates and wedding websites.

    + Wear what youre comfortable in! I recommend bringing a few changes of

    clothes to get a variety of looks.

    + Ill work with you to find a perfect location that reflects your personal style or

    matches the theme of your wedding.

    CONSULTATION

    If you like what you see, lets set up a meeting! Getting together for coffee or

    cocktails with my couples is an important part of the whole wedding photography

    process. I want to get to know you and your story, and talk about all the details you

    have planned for your special day and most importantly ensure were a good

    fit for each other. * If meeting in person isnt possible due to location, we can set

    up a Skype date or phone call.

    CONTRACT & BOOKING

    Ready to move forward? After our meeting, Ill send over my contract which goes

    over the rest of the nitty gritty details of my services and we can discuss any linger-

    ing questions via email. You can then book me for your wedding date with a $600

    reservation deposit.

    TIMELINE SCHEDULING

    Approximately a month out from the wedding day, Ill get back in contact with you

    to talk about the wedding timeline. Its important for me to be included in your

    plans to ensure we have the necessary time for photographs and make sure your

    day goes as smoothly as possible. The more time I have, the more photos youll

    get and the more creative I can be with them. Im more than happy to help with

    suggestions as you plan your timeline.

    WEDDING DAY

    A typical wedding day starts with my second shooter and I arriving about an hour

    early to scope out the location, get acquainted with you and your bridal party, and

    photograph some fun images of everyone getting ready. When youre all dressed,

    well photograph the bride with her bridesmaids and the groom with his guys.

    During the ceremony, we capture all the magic and emotions, making sure to get

    those first looks and tear-filled eyes. Right after the ceremony, the family gath-

    ers for some quick group photos while the rest of the guests make their way to

    cocktail hour. Ill then steal the happy couple away for creative portraits (about 45

    min to an hour). This is your moment to breathe and spend a little alone time in

    your first moments as husband and wife. The remaining hours are party time and

    well photograph all the exciting activities during your reception (bride and groom

    entry, dances, cake cutting, etc). Well also spend a lot of attention documenting

    special details of the day like food, decorations, candids of your guests, and any-

    thing and everything to fully capture and preserve the essence of your big day.

    PHOTO DELIVERY

    After your wedding, Ill spend the next few weeks sorting through your photos,

    picking the best ones, editing and curating them in a way that tells the full story

    of your incredible day from beginning to end. Within 6-7 weeks, youll get a digital

    download of all the edited images in high resolution format. You are free to share

    the photos with friends and family, make your own prints, and put together your

    own photobooks as you like. I know most of my brides are DIYers, so I dont try

    to upsell you on extra add ons or restrict access to your own wedding photos. If

    youre interested in additional products, Id be more than happy to discuss that

    with you after the wedding.

    DO YOU TRAVEL?

    Yes! I would absolutely love to discuss travel details for a custom quote.

    CAN WE BOOK YOU FOR ONLY A FEW HOURS TO SAVE MONEY?

    Storytelling is such a huge part of what I do. Years from now, youll want to look

    back and be able to relive every detail you spent so much time and effort planning,

    and the unexpected moments that made the day truly special. Im not willing to

    miss a second of that, and thats why I only offer full day wedding coverage.

    WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

    My second shooter and I both work with professional grade Canon digital cam-

    eras, lenses, and flashes.

    HOW MUCH DO YOU EDIT THE PHOTOS?

    Coming from an editorial photography background, I actually quite like Photoshop

    and dont think its evil as some might have you believe. I mostly color correct so

    the tones match the vibe of your wedding. But if theres a blemish that decided to

    make its debute on your big day or a body part got caught at the wrong angle, Ill

    do the necessary adjustments to ensure everyone looks their absolute best.

    DO YOU PROVIDE ALBUMS?

    Albums arent included in the main package. Many of my brides are DIYers and/or

    frugal (I was that bride too!), so most have preferred to make their own albums.

    Im 100% onboard with this as thats what I did with my own wedding, and enjoyed

    the freedom it gave me. If youd like to have an album made by me, Id be more

    than happy to discuss that after your photos have been delivered.
