It's true, planning is overwhelming.
Especially when you start to strip away all of the traditions and expectations and start exploring and dreaming of the possibilities that connect with you.
But you don't have to have it all figured out right now! In fact, as you start this journey your plans and ideas will probably evolve and change.
That's okay! It's normal.
I'm here to help. So take a deep breathe, and start imagining a day that's 100% perfect, to you.
Totally! Although my primary focus is the State of Washington, I am available for regional travel around the Pacific Northwest and West Coast of The United States!
The short answer is, it depends. Every experience is custom built to fit the individual needs and desires of each client. Pricing for full day elopement coverage starts at $5000 and partial day coverage starts at $3500
That's totally fine and totally normal! I am totally stoked to help you brainstorm ideas and come up with a customized location list specific to the vision that you describe to me!
I get it, waiting to see your photos is THE WORST! You can totally expect to see a sneak peek from your session or wedding within 24 hours, and have finished images delivered to you within 2 weeks for engagements and portraits, and within 4 weeks for weddings and elopements.
I try to offer flexible arrangements for paying for your photography services. For portrait and engagement sessions it's 50% of the total fee to hold the date. For wedding and elopement services it is a flat $500 to hold your date. The remaining balance for all services will be due 2 weeks prior to the secured date.
As soon as possible! Seriously, it's hard to say from week to week, month to month, and year to year how booked up the calendar will be. My best advice is to reach out as soon as you can to inquire about your date, and get it locked up before someone else has the chance to snag it!
Let's be honest, almost no one likes having their photo taken. It's weird, and uncomfortable. But the good news is I have spent almost a decade doing this and have developed a style and approach that makes this experience fun, interactive, and natural. I am here to capture you at your best, and to direct you into scenes, poses, and situations that will make you look GOOD. So get ready to laugh, get ready to be goofy, and get ready to smile so much your face hurts!
Although the major focus of my business is geared toward couples and wedding clients, I totally work with families, high school seniors, and maternity clients as well! Because the "wedding season" here in Washington is primarily June-September, I spend much of the "off season" working with portrait clients with the same approach I bring to my couple's sessions, to create totally rad photos!
For sure! In fact I recommend it, and include it in a number of my packages!
Obviously weddings are a rain or shine event. And although it probably doesn't sound like it, and it's probably not your first choice, photographs in the rain can be incredible! It opens up a whole new world of creative options, and can really be an amazing experience as opposed to a nightmare!
For portrait sessions, I generally operate rain or shine. However some elements are just not workable and a reschedule is a must. In that case, we will work together to find a new date that is available for both of us.
Whether you are planning an incredible intimate wedding or elopement, or a full blown all day party, I've got you! Each of my wedding collections are built with your needs in mind, and include ALL of the good stuff that you will want: an engagement experience, files, AND a stunning album!
