Q: What is your style of photography?
A: My goal is to capture your unique love story with joyful, authentic, timeless images. I may have been called a “photography leprechaun” by one of my couples because I kept popping up at just the right time to photograph even the little in-between moments that make your day so special. My editing style is true to life, bright and cheerful. The ultimate compliment from one of my brides was that when she looked at her wedding photos she could remember how she felt in that moment!

Q: What gear do you use?
A: I’m a Nikon girl! I shoot with a D4s, D700 & an assortment of prime & telephoto lenses.
Q: Do you travel?
A: Yes! While I am based in Seattle, I do travel for destination weddings & portrait sessions a few times a year. Photography has taken me all over the country and the world, from New Mexico, to Virginia, from France to Costa Rica!
Q: We want to go somewhere cool for our engagement photos, are you down for that?
A: Consider “Adventure” my middle name! I love when couples want to make their sessions a true experience – from hiking in the North Cascades to exploring the bluffs of the Columbia River Gorge!
Q: What’s included in your packages?
A: All wedding packages include an in-person or FaceTime consultation, an online portal including planning questionnaires, online payment options and digital contract, a 70+ page magazine detailing how to get the most out of your photography coverage, & lots of extra goodies that I love spoiling my couples with!
Wedding packages begin with 4 hours of coverage and include your high resolution edited images in an online gallery as well as on a USB drive and printing rights.
Add ons can include engagement sessions, additional hours of coverage, second photographers, album design & more!
Q: Will you help with our wedding day timeline?
Absolutely! I believe that a great timeline is extremely important to having a low-stress day that flows well – I have photographed hundreds of weddings & am happy to lend my expertise!
Q: What’s the turn around time?
A: Wedding galleries are delivered within 6-8 weeks, portrait sessions are delivered within 2-3 weeks.
Q: How many photos will we get?
A: Number of photos depends on your length of coverage – it is typically around 75 images per hour. There is not a “cap” though, so however many it takes to tell the story of your day!
Q: How far out do you book?
A: I typically book weddings between 9-12 months in advance, however, please still reach out if you’re outside that range!
Q: Do you shoot more than one wedding in a weekend?
A: Something I’ve prioritized for my couples & for myself is only taking one wedding a weekend (Friday to Sunday). This ensures that my amazing couples get my devoted attention and energy, and gives myself a little grace during the busy summer months!
Q: Do you have vendors you prefer to work with?
A: I have had the pleasure of meeting & working with so many fabulous vendors in the wedding industry – I am happy to give recommendations on anything from wedding planners to hair and makeup artists! You can see a few of my favorites here.
