Where are you based and are you willing to travel to my wedding?
I am based in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I live in Bellingham, WA to be exact, and yes, absolutely, I am always willing and excited to travel!
How much do you charge for wedding photography and what comes with your packages?
My wedding price packages range from $2200-$3200. An elopement package is $1,400. Each package will include me as your photographer and the digital images which will be provided in an online gallery. Coverage will be hourly-based depending on your event's needs. I do offer optional add-ons such as engagement sessions and a second photographer. For more information, please contact me and I will gladly share all the details you will need.
What if I only want you to take our engagement photographs?
This will be $450-$500 per session. If the location isn't local, travel fees may apply.
What is your style?
I am a lover of the natural beauty found in the great outdoors. There is nothing better than photographing my clients in such naturally beautiful settings. It enables me to tell their love stories in a real and heartfelt way.
Generally I prefer shooting in natural light, and I seek adventure and spontaneity. I also prefer candid moments that arise in the priceless moments that will happen during the day. However, I am adaptive and will prioritize serving your vision. When you hire me, your story is my goal.
Can we talk to you before we book?
I almost always require this from all of my clients!
Sometimes a photographer might have the right photos you are looking for, but because you will be spending most of your day with your photographer always in the background, you would want to find a professional who will also be the right fit for the both of you! This is why I always highly recommend a brief consultation or meeting before any final bookings. I am available to meet with you over coffee in person. At times, Skype or Facetime will work too!
This is also the reason why I encourage engagement sessions. This will help us to get comfortable with each other in preparation for your big day!
Will you be available to help us in creating our timelines, photography checklists, etc.?
Yes! As my client, I encourage you to contact me as needed during your wedding planning. I can help with a general photography timeline and assist in helping you come up with your photographic needs during your day!
Do you do other types of photography?
Aside from weddings and engagements as well as landscape photography, I have also photographed in various industries. I've done model portraits, corporate functions, festivals (Photography Team Lead of the Bay Area Book Festival), public events, car shows, and more. However, I rarely do event and model photography anymore as my focus is on weddings, but if you are interested, I am more than happy to speak with you!
What are some of your favorite places?
National Parks have a special place in my heart (and my camera!) Some of my favorites are Zion National Park in Utah, Yosemite National Park in California, and Mt. Rainier National Park in Washington state.
