the process


We hop on a quick call and you’ll receive a proposal that’s personalized to your wedding weekend. After you pay the retainer and sign the contract, I countersign and you’re officially reserved! From there, you’ll receive access to your client portal which holds all your information in one convenient location. A questionnaire awaits you, and your responses help us map out your wedding coverage and ensure your photography goes off without a hitch. In the time leading up to your wedding, you’ll also schedule your engagement session, and you can then use those photos for your website. 


From the time we arrive to when we leave, your team is working hard to capture all the pivotal moments and sweet and funny candids along the way. We blend in with your guests so they feel comfortable in front of the lens. All you must do on your wedding day is stay present, enjoy yourself, and rest easy knowing we’re on it. 


While you're basking in newly wedded bliss, my team and I are hard at work culling, editing, and putting signature finishing touches on your images. Your gallery launches in 8 weeks, make a date and cozy up with your love to relive the best day. As you move through the gallery, click the heart on the ones you love to keep track of favorites for your album and prints you’ll frame. 

How many weddings do you photograph a year?

Due to the highly personalized nature of this process, I will only commit to ten couples per year. This quality over quantity approach ensures that you receive the best of me throughout our time together, on the day and beyond.

Do you work with a second photographer?

Yes. As a hybrid (film and digital) photographer, I find having an experienced second photographer to help with duties on a wedding day is always a blessing. Whether they’re fluffing your dress, holding a reflector, or getting another angle of your ceremony; it’s all working to the end goal of your breathtaking wedding gallery. 


How do we book you for our wedding?

After we chat about your wedding day dreams (and logistics), I’ll send over a proposal to begin the booking process. Once the signed contract and retainer fee is received, I’ll guide you through the next steps. 

What kind of equipment do you use?

I use a mix of film and digital cameras, flashes, and more to achieve your wedding imagery. Always with backups for redundancy. No two weddings are the same and I bring the best gear for your day.  

How many photos can we expect?

The goal is to have you continuously be delighted as you move through your gallery. Any fluff gets edited out and only the best of the best get the stamp of approval. As such, you can expect to receive about fifty finished images per hour of coverage in your final gallery.

Will we receive high resolution files?

Yes. You’ll receive all finished images as high resolution files delivered via gallery download. USB delivery is available upon request.

Can friends and family order prints?

They sure can! Share your gallery link with anyone who is interested and they’ll be able to purchase prints directly from one of the best professional labs in the country. 

What is the gallery turnaround time?

During peak wedding season (May-Nov) your gallery can take up to 8 weeks. Great things take time and film is an intentional process. Signature finishing touches are then applied as the cherry on top. Rest assured your gallery will reflect this extra time and attention.
