Q1. HOW DO WE KNOW IF YOU'RE A GOOD MATCH FOR US?
If you’ve found yourself falling in love with my photos and nodding along with my words, that’s a pretty good sign! I also encourage you to take a look at my Pinterest inspiration boards—we may have some of the same pins! The final test? Reach out, and we’ll check our connection in person.
Q2. YOU ARE WHO I WANT TO PHOTOGRAPH MY WEDDING. PERIOD. BUT DO WE REEEEALLY NEED A REVELING IN THE “YES” SESSION?
Oh yes, for so many reasons. First, what better way to celebrate deciding to spend your lives together than an intimate couples session? The wedding will be fantastic, and we can absolutely make time for some just-the-two-of-us photos on the big day, but things can still get a bit hectic, and relaxation may not be easy to come by. A Reveling in the “Yes” session lets you do exactly that, revel in your togetherness with a low-key and affectionate ease. There’s no one else looking at you but me.
And speaking of me, Reveling in the “Yes” sessions allow us all to get comfortable with each other and interacting with my camera thrown into the mix. I can answer any questions you may have about posing and soothe any in-front-of-a-camera concerns troubling you. I can give you a small, sweet taste of what it will be like on your wedding day, but with much more conversation, joking, and maybe even a few silly selfies of the three of us.
Q3. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT TRAVEL?
People say life’s a journey, not a destination. I say life’s a journey full of different destinations, and I’m always happy to travel to the one you’ve decided reflects your unique love best.
Q4. TALK TO ME ABOUT COVERAGE
Every wedding is different, and each couple has different moment priorities—some are all about blocking out time for a before-the-ceremony sneak peek at each other while others hold memories full of family nearest and dearest. I will work with you to ensure what matters most to you is what ends up on my camera. Also, every wedding includes myself and a sterling second shooter so we can capture your love and laughter from all angles (but primarily the best ones).
Q5. I love your style, but I’d really like some traditional photos thrown in there too . . .
I totally get it! I’ll probably have some traditional family photos at my own wedding because, well, tradition! I normally schedule about 20-30 minutes after the ceremony for family photos, and if there are any other types you want to make sure not to miss, we’ll add them to the plan!
Q6. Will you work with my wedding timeline?
You betcha. In fact, I’m happy to help with the timeline as much as I can! While I’m not a wedding planner, I love weddings in general and want to do whatever I can to help make things flow as smoothly as possible. Want to set up a time to tour your venue and figure out great places for certain shots? Sign me up. Need to plan around certain activity times? I can do that. Want to be just as go with the flow as possible? I can do that too (but I do still recommend setting aside a bit of specific time for certain moments).
Q7. We’re not professional models when it comes to posing . . .
No one is! But between our Reveling in the “Yes” session, collaborating on all sorts of ideas, and my excellent directing skills, all your more posed moments will have Cosmo and GQ asking you for tips.
Q8. Wedding guests get food. Do photographers need food?
My second shooter and I would greatly appreciate it if there’s a meal for us at dinner time. We don’t need anything fancy, just some simple and nutritious fuel to keep us snapping and a little spot to eat it in—i.e. not at a guest table. In fact, the more portable and durable the food, the better since we’d rather hop up mid meal than miss a special moment.
Q9. I’m sold. Let’s meet.
