12 years. I first picked up a camera when I was 14! I was entered into a state wide Utah competition and won 3rd place against 30+ year Olds! I was so intimidated but now looking back I am so so proud of little me who braved through that! I think it gave me the confidence to officially start professionally 4 years ago.
Ok real talk, I know how uncomfortable a camera can make you feel. I get the same way! Yep, me too. So, what I’ve found after over a decade of shooting is that movement helps the most! I’ll give you moving poses like run to that tree, then pick your s/o up and spin around. Or sway side to side to the music, or even doing something like skateboarding or eating pizza. I work with you to ensure that whatever we are doing it’s something you will actually enjoy so that we get those beautiful candid moments. Trust me I got you!
I have worked diligently on creating a work flow that works for YOU so I deliver much quicker than most photographers. I deliver galleries within 2 weeks during October-April and 3 weeks in May-September. I also send sneak peeks within 48 hours of your shoot!
Ok this one is SO important to me. For weddings I deliver a minimum of 1500 (typically more) and sessions a minimum of 300. I give you everything that is in focus (minus really terrible awkward “in between” faces) But even if it’s not “picture perfect” I include it because I believe it’s so important that you know I gave you everything you could want. I know that even the slightest move in posture can make you love it so I give you as many options to choose from as possible!
I believe we are all so beautiful as is, however i know that sometimes you get that pesky pimple or bruise before your shoot and those things I will edit out for you. If there is anything you are self-conscious about, please tell me and I can help in the posing process to make sure we are highlighting the most confident version of you!
I have my travel rates build into my packages for ease for the different time zones in the states as well as out of country. Let me know where you are located so I can provide you with your specific price guide!
I never want my couples to feel uncomfortable! If we are going to be miserable and stressed during the shoot, I’m happy to reschedule. However, I do encourage embracing what nature gives us as sometimes wind and a little rain can be so dreamy! I’m up for an adventure and always happy to provide an umbrella or sit in the car and wait out anything little.
I do not offer any discounts, however If I am your dream photographer, please let me know what your budget is and we can see if we can make something work typically less hours coverage etc… don’t hesitate to reach out if you really connect with my work!
I use a professional print service called Pic time. I deliver all your high-resolution images through them. It is so easy to create albums, cards, images to frame right inside your gallery. By far they are the best print quality I’ve seen. Yes, this option is pricier than Costco- or Wal greens but that is for good reason. I HIGHLY recommend Pic time over any do it yourself print shop.
