Weddings + Elopements
How long have you been a wedding photographer?
I’ve been photographing weddings for over 10 years now.
What’s included in terms of photographs for my wedding?
All obvious elements of your wedding are captured such as your dress/tux, rings, venue, ceremony, first kiss, dancing and more. Beyond that, I look to capture the in-between moments that may not be as obvious and are unique to each wedding such as interactions between you and your family, unexpected hugs, kisses, and DANCING.
How do you approach each wedding?
Be sure to check out the page on My Approach.
Do I need a second shooter?
If you’re having a small wedding of under 100 guests in just a couple locations and no events happening simultaneously (such as Getting Ready time), a single photographer is enough. It’s highly recommended to have a second photographer if you’re expecting over 100 guests and you have over 2 locations to get to. If I could clone myself, believe me, I would. Having 2 photographers allows us to maximize our time and potentially stagger where each of us is during your day to capture all that is needed.
Do I need an engagement session?
Your engagement session is included in all bookings of 6 hours or more. This session is complimentary and gives us an opportunity to get to know each other more and warm up to the camera being around. I encourage you to choose an activity that makes sense for both of you. Perhaps an IKEA date is your favourite way to spend your free time together. If so, let’s photograph that experience. This is also a great time to trial hair + make up to see what it looks like in photographs.
What is your booking process?
For all weddings, I require an in-person meeting. Wedding photography is personal and getting to know each other is the very first step to building a good relationship with each other and ensuring we’re a good fit moving forward. During our meeting, we will learn more about each other and your dreams for your wedding day. Information, our contract and a quote for your day will be emailed shortly after and you’ll have a chance to digest and discuss this with your partner. Once you decide you’d like to move forward, all that is needed is your Date Retainer paid and consider yourself booked! If an engagement session is included in your chosen collection, we work together to plan that in the following weeks.
What is your booking fee?
My booking fee (Or Date Retainer) is $1000 CAD + GST and is required to secure your date. This means your date is guaranteed and will not be offered to any other couples inquiring for that day. Should you still be considering your options and an inquiry for the same day comes up, you’ll be notified before I meet with the next couple. The remainder of your collection is due 30 days prior to your wedding day.
What deliverables do I receive from my collection?
All weddings come with a curated and edited gallery of digital files. You have the option to choose between Web-friendly or Print-friendly file options when you book your collection depending on your wants and needs and how you plan on experiencing your photographs after your wedding. Digital and tangible options are available such as Slideshows, Prints, Albums, Framing and more.
Why should we consider you as our photographer?
I could tell you all the qualifications and experience that I have photographing weddings. But at the end of the day, it’s the images that should speak for themselves. I am a daughter, a sister, a granddaughter and I have a loving partner that I share my life with. The images that I produce are ones that I would want for myself, my home and my memories and what I want for you too. I photograph to tell your story and your love for each other. When you look at your photographs, I want you to laugh, to cry, to feel and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
