Am I the photographer for you?
I want to make sure my couples are having the time of their lives and celebrating their love. I don't want you to be stressing about the little things. I want to make your day about YOU, so you should do what you want to do. Want to hike to your ceremony location that is the redwood grove you found while hiking? Want to camp and then backpack to your favorite spot? Want to get married among the forest ferries? Want to elope to San Francisco City Hall and take your portraits along the beach? Then I am your photographer! I want to photograph couples whose weddings represent them as a couple and not trying to fit into an expectation.
With a deep rooted love for nature and exploring, I want a sense of fun and adventure to be a part of my couples days. I won't be the right fit if you're having your ceremony indoors or a wedding with 200 guests.
Being the right fit for my couples is of utmost importance, so I'm just keeping it real :) My goal is to be like your BFF during your day and if we become friends in real life, even better! Connecting with my couples on a professional AND personal level is so important to me because with that connection, we can create beautiful images that you will cherish forever.
Outdoor weddings make me the happiest! Being surrounded by the ones you love make me the happiest! Taking some time for just you two makes me the happiest!
Most importantly though: Becoming a friendor, and not just a vendor, makes me the happiest!
Not getting married in the Bay Area? I am SO up for traveling and my passport is up to date, so please say hello!
Oh how I cannot wait to be a part of your new adventure! Connecting with my couples and making sure they're having the time of their lives in one of my goals in being your photographer. I cannot wait to see you two celebrate your love and have the time of your life on your wedding day!

+HOW DO I BOOK YOU?
Say Hello and I will get back to you within 24 hours. From there, I like to set up a time for us to connect over the phone or Google hangout to make sure we’re the right fit for each other and get to know you and your partner better. If you would like to work together and we jive, I’ll then send you my contract to sign and also require a 40% retainer to make that date yours!
+HOW MANY EDITED IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?
Every shoot is a little different and I don’t want the focus to be on the quantity of images you receive, but more on the quality of the images. I will make sure to fully capture your day to tell the complete story, so that tends to be around 60-100 images/ hour.
+DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
You betchya. Full business insurance for me, my gear and all the other stuff.
+WILL YOU HELP US WITH OUR TIMELINE?
Definitely! If you have a wedding planner you’re working with, I will collaborate with them on your timeline and if you don’t have a planner, no worries! Once we get the contract signed, I will send you a wedding day information document that will help me create the best photography timeline for your day.
+DO YOU TRAVEL TO PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS?
Heck yes I do! I have said since I was a youngin’ that I want to travel and take photographs when I grow up, which I am doing, so let’s get me on a plane and to you!
I live in Oakland, CA so any weddings/adventures outside of a 25 mile radius will have a small travel fee added. Out of state or Country weddings will require travel+lodging coverage for me.
+DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?
I really love designing albums so yes I do! Your photos tend to live on your computer in a folder, so having something tangible on your coffee table or bookshelf bring your images life. Being able to look through your album whenever you’re feeling a #throwback has to be the best thing! My albums are printed on archival photographic papers and handcrafted with great attention to detail. I offer albums with seamless spreads and beautiful cover options and personalization. You can see an example of a photocover album I designed here.
+SHOULD WE DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION IF WE'RE NOT ELOPING?
Yes! This gives us another opportunity to meet each other and gives you two an opportunity to get used to being in front of the camera. It helps to get the pre-wedding jitters out and I get to connect with you two even more. You also get extra photos of you two, documenting the exciting time during your engagement! It may seem silly, but trust me, it’s worth it.
