I LOVE YOUR WORK. WHAT NOW?
YAY! So glad you found me. Let’s meet or speak by phone. We’ll discuss all the particulars, you can view many albums of my work, ask me a zillion questions and if we start finishing each other’s sentences, you’ll know we’re a match! I’ll send you a contract and on your wedding day, I’ll be with you every step of the way.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
A combination of photojournalistic and modern fashion. I’m all about detailed storytelling in an unobtrusive way. I capture what the event looks like, feels like and the story it represents. Every wedding is unique. I don’t work from a shot list; I follow the action and capture what is really happening.
DO YOU SHOOT ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
So many! It’s a perfect opportunity for us to get acquainted and for you to get comfortable on camera.
DO YOU SHOOT ELOPEMENT CEREMONIES?
YES! I love elopement ceremonies…especially at elopements at San Francisco City Hall… fantastic venue for photos. My own wedding to my husband was an elopement of sorts… we were married at Burning Man.
HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU TAKE AND CAN WE KEEP THEM ALL?
Lots! And yes. Two weeks after your wedding, 1000-1200 edited images will be hosted in an online gallery, slightly less for elopements. We’ll email you a link to share with family and friends. Within 30 days of your wedding date, we’ll deliver the high resolution image files to you, edited and sorted. You can keep them forever.
WHAT IS A TYPICAL WEDDING DAY LIKE?
I arrive about 1 hour before you’re dressed, you have the option of doing a first look (or not), you get married, we have a family and portrait session following your ceremony (typically), we photograph the two of you alone, you enjoy some cocktails and dinner, you laugh, you cry, you dance, you cut cake and you dance some more.
DO YOU HAVE PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGES?
We do! And a la carte pricing options as well. Our packages include custom albums (large and small), and we also offer beautiful prints, custom frames, metal and canvas prints, and fine-art cards.
HOW DOES THE ALBUM WORK?
Should you purchase an album, YOU pick your favorites, I lay it out and send you a proof, you give feedback, I edit the album, it ships to your door.
WHAT ELSE DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH?
I photograph people (portraits), events and horses (wild and domestic). I teach a wild horse photography workshop twice a year at a horse sanctuary in Northern CA. I love making art (both horses and weddings).
WHERE CAN WE MEET YOU?
At my studio in San Francisco, or via FaceTime.
DO YOU SHOOT VIDEO?
Yes! We started shooting video in 2017. As much as we love working with other vendors, we love our photo/video team. I’m the creative director for video and our editors are AMAZING!
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Yes, anywhere really - let’s get creative, and brave and daring! I love adventure!
WHAT’S YOUR BEST WEDDING ADVICE?
Be real. Be natural. Be you. Have someone help you day-of so you can just enjoy the LOVE.
WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Experience - I’ve been shooting weddings since 2000. Confidence - I’m ready for changes and I’m able to keep everything moving along smoothly and naturally. I’ll be with you every step of the way to capture all the memories. Creative Energy - I create art on your wedding day, not cheesy photos.
