As someone who LOVES being in the kitchen *almost* as much as taking photos, I look at wedding photography as a collaborative recipe. We'll be cooking with wine together, so to speak. Your story is unique, and looking at your wedding photos should have the same euphoric effect that eating your favorite comfort food does. Everyone has varied tastes for food, just like every couple is going to be a little different in front of the camera. Much of my cooking starts with olive oil, onion, and garlic, but can go in so many different directions depending what I decide to add next. The same can be said about my wedding photography. I have my foundation shots, but depending on what you prefer, I will adjust accordingly. We can do the traditional posed shots that will make the matriarchs of your family smile, or the more natural contemporary shots, just the two of you loving up on each other pretending I'm not there. Most people enjoy a mix of the two, as we used to say in Ma's kitchen, "A little a this, a little of that..." When it comes to photographs, it is an absolute must that I use only *fresh* ingredients, just like when I cook. Spoiler alert: original ideas don't come from the Pinterest Frozen Food section. Instead let's use Pinterest boards (and/or other shot lists) as inspiration to come up with something new and exciting, not just a direct copy of someone else's photography. Here are some of my favorite images, followed by more information about my photography services.
Now that you've seen some of my photography, let's put the fun food analogies aside and get down to brass tacks. It's no secret that planning and paying for all of the nuances of a wedding can be stressful. However I have an important life-hack to share with you. Booking a wedding photographer that you LOVE (me) should be easy, and stress-free. That's why I'm here for you, from the moment your inquiry email pops up in my iPhone notifications, all the way to when we hug goodbye on the dance floor on your wedding day. However our relationship doesn't end there. You are now under contract and legally required to be my friend for the rest of your lives together. Sorry that's just how I roll. Kidding, kidding, but many of my clients stay in touch with me as close friends over the years! I'll probably tell a couple deadpan jokes like this (at the right time) on your wedding day to make sure you stay loose and ready to go, not uptight and nervous. Weddings are supposed to be fun! After your wedding, your photos are delivered in a matter of weeks, not months, and you even get some THE SAME DAY to share on social media. I'm in the process of planning a wedding next year with my fiancé Tara. So I am thinking about a lot of the same things you are. How much can I afford? What should my top priorities be? I'm here for you. In my Pricing & FAQ section you'll get a detailed explanation on exactly what you get for your money, and the justifications behind my pricing structure. Something many other photographers aren't willing to do. Transparency is king in 2017, and I'm the saran wrap of wedding photographers. Keep on scrollin' for some of my most recent blogs where you can get a better idea of the kind of photography I do throughout an entire wedding day and/or engagement session!
