prices from: Inquire for a detailed pricing guide and to see what's included! Wedding Photography starting at - $3,500 Elopement Photography starting at - $1,500 I know that my pricing isn't in everyone's budget. You may have added up numbers and get to this point in a bit of shock. For others, you may be excited that this is something that can work out. Just know that. However, if you love and connect with my work and believe that I am for you, please don't let a number keep you from reaching out. Contact me, tell me about yourselves, let me fall in love with your story (AKA make it hard for me to say no to you guys!). Let me know what your budget is and what you envision your wedding being. I ALWAYS will try to do what I can in order to make it work with awesome couples. I do have occasional promos and always offer discounts for referrals that you can capitalize on to help my prices fit your budget.

describe your artistic style:
I am not the photographer you hire if you just want someone to take photos from afar. I love to have fun. I love to get out on the dance floor and dance around with you and your friends/family. I will remind you to breathe and enjoy when everything else is rushing by. I encourage you guys to whisper sweet nothings and kiss "just because." I do my absolute best for every client. Don't expect your wedding dress to be absolutely perfect after the day (that's what cleaning and preserving it is for), we may hike, explore, climb over a fallen tree, because I want to make sure that you get the very very best on your wedding day and that I do the day justice since you put so much time and love into planning every little detail. Definitely don't expect for me to have you smile at the camera more than a few times or say "cheese."

what inspires you?
I work hard for my clients. I give you my all when I am with you. I will help with vendors if you need, or with timelines in planning, or in getting you food and water during your wedding, and I'm often found out on the dance floor with camera in one hand and high-fiving with the other. I care about your wedding or session. I care about you as people. I care about you as a couple. I want to see you guys light up and smile when you see each other on your wedding, and I want you to do that when you see your photos. I'm not for everyone. And that's ok.

what do you love about weddings?
I love weddings because I love celebrating people and love. I thoroughly enjoy seeing how people decide to create one of the biggest milestones and days of their lives and how it uniquely fits them. I love being able to give my clients a gift of photos that they are going to keep for the rest of their lives and look at in the good and bad times. I hope and pray that my photos remind my clients 5, 10, 20+ years down the line about how much they love each other.

what's your travel policy?
I love to travel and look for every excuse to travel. My passport is current as well. I have a flat rate for US based travel of $600 for all jobs outside of Southern CA. For international weddings and elopements, I charge for roundtrip airfare, 3 nights hotel, and a rental car (plus any work visas for that specific country that may be needed. The last thing you want is for your amazing wedding to be ruined because your photographer didn't get through customs and was deported).
