Frequently Asked Questions

My work is a combination of photojournalism and romantic portraiture. I'm inspired by nature and beautiful landscapes and will gladly climb mountains along side you and wade in rivers to get that epic shot. I want you to look at your images and be transported back to moments that you may have forgotten or perhaps didn't know exist.

Where are you based out of?
----Venice, California

I'm super uncomfortable in front of the camera. Is that okay?
---Actually, 99% of my clients say the same thing. It's part of my job to make you feel comfortable with me so I can capture you interacting with each other naturally. I'll help guide you a little if you need it but I'll never pose you. I want you to look back at your photos and see yourselves as you are normally together-not some weird stiff versions.

I see you photograph weddings all over the world, what are your travel fees?
---- I'm my happiest when I'm exploring a new area and find the most inspiration when I travel, whether that is far or near, so there are no additional fees to have me with you for your wedding if it's in California. I don't think you should have to pick your photographer based solely on whether they are local to your destination or far away nor the costs associated with that so I only ask you for a plane ticket and place to lay my head if you're getting married across the country or overseas.

What are your rates?
----Wedding packages vary dependent on if it's an elopement or a full wedding but let's get the conversation started here

Do you work with a second shooter?
----Yes! I have a large network of amazing photographer friends who run their own businesses. 

How do you feel about same sex couples?
----I'm an advocate. One love, always.

How many images will I receive?
----You can expect a minimum of 500 fully edited images, it really just depends on the flow of your day. 

When can I expect them?
----You'll receive them within 8 weeks of your wedding day, sooner if it's not the busy season. For engagement sessions delivery is within two weeks.

We love what we see! Now what?
----Awesome, contact me and we'll set up a coffee or drink date to get to know each other. If we're not in the same town then I love Google Video chats. For me to capture the best images, It's really important that we get along well. When you decide you want to book me I ask for a retainer and a signed agreement.

Do you have insurance?
----Yes, let me know if you need a copy.
