MY OFFERINGS -
Every couple is unique, with unique needs. I know this is (usually) your first time getting married, so I understand how to tailor my offerings to your wedding vision, and provide guidance on what you may not realize you need. Some require coverage over a period of a couple days, or would like the convenience of a customized album created by me. Depending on what the vision is for the wedding day, each couple will have services tailored to them.
Wedding collections may include collaboration between myself, your wedding planner and you to create the perfect timeline for each day. It could also include a unique engagement session, or even additional photographers and other deliverables that will meet your specific wedding day vision.
What sets me apart
There are nuances to being a wedding photographer. The experience I have gained from years of shooting to benefit you and solve problems you didn't know you might have:
Understanding family dynamics, working well as a team with your other vendors to make the experience flawless, anticipating poignant moments, knowing when to step in and guide, and when to fade into the background. It also includes taking time to reposition my subjects to be in the most flattering light, making decisions on the fly to achieve the best results for your imagery. There is much deliberate thought and planning before the wedding day that I will do with you to ensure that each part of the day is documented beautifully and naturally.
Documenting your love Story,
capturing the candid and picture perfect.
My Style + Approach
I grew up in love with the Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren perfume ad's - or anything remotely European. They felt so dreamy, romantic, everything I wanted when I grew up and became a bride. Little did I know that my love for fashion, editorial's and art would all come together in a very documentary approach and shape my photography style. I like to think it is "chic editorial meets photojournalism."
I approach the wedding day from my couples heart and eyes - what would be important to them to reflect on? What are the memories that they might wish they could re-live? I believe in capturing the candid moments over the posed, and the authenticity and reality instead of just pretty pictures.
This is a wonderful way to get to know each other, and to get you comfortable in front of the camera. We can do these on the Oregon Coast, the Redwoods, or what about downtown Portland? I love doing this so that you don't feel like a complete stranger is coming to your wedding.
I know I'm just a stranger on the internet and you're hoping that I am a good fit for you. I want you to feel solid about working with me. I am here to answer questions, explain the process, how I approach a wedding day and what I provide. I can honestly say there is much more that you will get beyond wedding photos.
The Year of Planning
By now, we have a plan. I worked with you on a timeline, a list of family members to photograph, and much more. Outdoor wedding and you need a plan for rain? I have planned for it. My job is to keep you feeling good so you're relaxed and yourself for my camera.
After our engagement session, I don't like to drop off the radar. I provide guidance and advice on planning the wedding day timeline, when to take specific photos, walk the venue with you and refer other vendors that would be a great fit for your wedding. Need help figuring out where to get your marriage license? I can help. This is the first time for you, I am happy to offer my experience and make your day as seamless as possible.
How does it work?
I love answering questions and making sure you feel solid. There are so many great photographers out there, but one of the most important parts is choosing one you feel comfortable with. I recommend:
1) Setting up a call with me just to chat and get to know each other. I would love to hear about your vision and offer the best solution for what you need.
2) Working together is easy, once we decide we want to work together, I send an email with all the pertinent information to get your date secured.
3) Afterwards we can schedule your engagement session, or I can start working with your wedding planner to make this a fun and easy process.
