Do you travel for weddings?


Yes! I’ve been all over the US and have done several international weddings including Italy, France, Iceland, Scotland, Australia, Greece, and Bali.

Do you limit the number of events you shoot each year and how far out do you book?


Because of my constant need to provide the highest quality of work along with a unique client experience, I do limit the number of events I take each year to fifteen. I tend to book out about a year to a year and a half in advance.

Do you also do video?


I don’t offer video but would be happy to provide you with plenty of amazing recommendations if needed!

Is there anything you think we should be asking you?


I know that planning a wedding can be time consuming and stressful. Not to worry, my process is simple & relaxed. I don’t need much from you to do what I do. After you book your date, I’ll send you information that will help you plan your day from a photography standpoint (including tips that will help you avoid some of the common mistakes made when it comes to planning your day for photos). Once you have a preliminary timeline, I’ll be able to review and make sure I have the time I need to do what I do. That’s it! And I’m always just a phone call, text, or email away if you ever have any questions.
