Every couple that books their wedding day with me will receive a complimentary engagement session. Why? Because it's a good time for us to get to know one another a little better before the big day. You learn how I interact with couples, how I handle posing (what do we do with our hands anyway?, I get a chance to show you I am going to help you feel less awkward, look natural, and feel great so you have no nerves (at least about pictures) on the big day!

Editing is part of what makes my style mine and part of the reason my clients hire me. I do not release unedited images.
I do not release unedited images. The images that are selected for your gallery are selected because they meet my standards of my final product. Please know that if an image does not make to your gallery then it was either a duplicate, very similar to another photo, or truly an outtake. If it didn't make the cut then it is deleted from my hard drives and gone forever.
I do not offer a guarantee of a certain number of images. The number of images you receive will depend on a variety of things such as how long I am hired to photograph, whether or not you add a second photographer to your day, how much time is given for photography among other things.
I can not hold a date without a retainer fee and a signed contract. If someone else contacts me for you date and they are ready to pay then they I will book them for the day.
