I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT SMALL, OUTDOOR WEDDINGS & INTIMATE ELOPEMENTS

BEING THE OUTDOORSY-TYPE,  I AM MOST INSPIRED WHEN I'M PHOTOGRAPHING OUT IN THE FRESH AIR WITH ADVENTUROUS COUPLES WHO SHARE THE SAME APPRECIATION OF NATURE. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER TO SHOOT A TRADITIONAL OR FORMAL WEDDING, I'M PROBABLY NOT THE GAL FOR YOU -- AND THAT'S OKAY! I WANT YOU TO FIND THE PHOTOGRAPHER WHO IS PERFECT FOR YOU, EVEN IF THAT'S NOT ME.

WANT TO ELOPE IN THE HIGH PEAKS? HOST YOUR RECEPTION ON A SMALL ISLAND IN THE FINGER LAKES? WHISPER YOUR VOWS IN A SECRET GROVE WITH THE WIND WHISPERING THROUGH THE PINES?

 

I WANT YOU TO.

HOWEVER YOU ENVISION YOUR WEDDING DAY, WHETHER IT'S JUST THE TWO OF YOU OR 20 OF YOUR CLOSEST FAMILY & FRIENDS, I BELIEVE EVERY MOMENT IS SPECIAL AND I WOULD LOVE TO BE THE ONE TO DOCUMENT IT FOR YOU.

IF YOU SAID YES TO ANY OF THE ABOVE, LET'S CHAT! I'D LOVE TO BE THE ONE TO HIKE UP A MOUNTAIN WITH YOU BEFORE SUNRISE IN ORDER TO DOCUMENT YOUR HEARTFELT VOWS IN THE EARLY MORNING LIGHT AND FRESH MOUNTAIN AIR. 

 

LET'S DO THIS!

Still not sure which package is right for you? 
Check out my blog post specifically written for planning out your day!

Read it here!

What is your shooting style?

I'm not into those circa 1995 stiff wedding poses. In just about any of the shots I've posted featuring a couple, they're either complete naturals in front of the camera (so magical unicorns) or, more realistically, are acting out a prompt I've given them. I'll never just throw you in front of the camera and leave you to figure it out. I'll set you up in a great location, find the flattering angles, and then give you a bit of direction here and there and let you do your thing! I'm more interested in the unscripted moments than the stiff poses anyways!

Do you work from a shot list? 

Nope!

The only shot list I ever ask for is one for family & group shots (and this is something we'll work on together prior to your wedding). Otherwise, I prefer to focus on what's naturally unfolding rather than trying to pose and set up a million different shots you pulled from some

Pinterest list!

Do you offer albums? 

Yes, yes, annnnnnd yes! When was the last time you used a floppy disc? Now imagine your grandkids in 50 years, wondering how to use a USB. I am a huge advocate for prints & albums and encourage all my couples to preserve these amazing memories in an album or individual prints. I offer a variety of album options

so just ask! 

What kind of equipment do you have? 

Although I learned on Canon, I now shoot Nikon!

My equipment includes two Nikon d750s (so yes! I have a back-up camera!) and a variety of lenses:

20mm, 35mm, 45mm tilt-shift, 50mm, 58mm,

85mm, and a 70-200mm.

FAQ

Do you travel?

Yo. Anywhere, anyhow. You want me there and I'm there. I'm all for finding the best deals to make it as economical  for you. Have a spare bedroom? I'm in. Picking up a crew at the airport and have an extra spot in the van? I'm there. Hoarding airline miles for a rainy day? Purchase your photographer's ticket with them! I promise, travel costs aren't nearly as bad as you're imagining them to be. I'm so willing to work with you on this so let's figure this  out together!

How many images will I receive

& when will I receive them? 

While every session and wedding are different, I guarantee at least 50 edited images an hour! I'm all about that quality over quantity life. During the busy season (May - November), you'll receive your images no later than 6 weeks from your session/wedding!

Can we print photos ourselves?

Of course! All my packages include personal printing rights. You can make as many copies as you want! I have a few favorite ordering websites that I use but you're welcome to use whatever servcie you like! For ease and peace of mind in knowing you're ordering from a reputable lab, you can conveniently order prints directly from your online gallery!

But does anyone ever look at the camera??

If we get to the point of FaceTiming for your consultation, you'll hear me talk about "mantle shots." These are the shots your mother, your grandmother want. Photos of you two posed and looking at the camera, smiling big happy grins. Of course I get these! I'll take a handful of these shots plus any family and group shots you want! We'll discuss a group shot list way before your wedding to ensure not a single soul gets missed. 

Looks great! How do we book  you?

Super easy! First, shoot me an email! If I think we're a good fit, I'll schedule a FaceTime consultation. These super-informal chats generally last 15-20 minutes and just gives us an opportunity to chat face-to-face. Booking your wedding photographer is a big decision and I want you to be as well-informed as possible! If, after we chat, you decide I'm the girl for you, I shoot you a contract. You sign, plus put down a 50% retainer, and bam!

Booking complete. 

How do you deliver your photos?

I deliver photos several ways! If you've booked a full day package, you'll receive your edited images via en online gallery and a USB. Images can be downloaded in various resolutions from this gallery and you can print them as many times as you want. All the images on the USB are high-resolution. No small, less-than-stellar files here, no way no how. You've paid for them, you're going to get the best. If you've booked a smaller elopement (4 hours) or a couple's session, you'll receive your images via that same online gallery!

Can we see a full gallery?

Yes! In fact, once we've had a chance to FaceTime or chat over the phone, I'll send you not only several full galleries but also a sample contract. Your wedding day encompasses SO MUCH MORE than what I pose on social media so I think it's very important for you to see what a full day looks like.
