Lets get acquainted

 

From the moment I first picked up a camera I knew I had a story to tell, whether that story was mine or someone else’s. I discovered something fascinating by looking through a camera lens. Every frame is like a sentence, every angle the subtext. By capturing the ambiance and beauty of light, a good photographer gets to reveal a story. I like to capture moments within your story that will take you back to the laughter, love, tears of joy, and life-giving times that fill your every day. The chapters in your life that you'll want to return to again and again, can be preserved forever within the beauty of the photograph. Seriously, how awesome is that!? I never take what I get to do for granted. It’s my art and mission to be a storyteller, whether its your wedding or me just coming and hanging out with you in your home. 

So what should you expect when you hire me? You should expect someone you could be friends with and someone that will make it their mission to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I care about you as a person as much as I care about my craft. Every story is unique, so help me share that. I hope I can share my vision with you and be more than just a photographer. I want to be someone you can enjoy the day with and captures those special moments for you, with taste and an artistic eye. I’d like to give you something you’ll cherish for the rest of your life and share with family and friends as you grow older.

My process starts with you! If you're interested in booking a wedding, elopement, or lifestyle session, first send me an email. From there I'll send you a quick questionnaire, and we'll schedule a phone call or coffee date. The more I know your story, the more authentically I can capture it! 

All wedding packages begin at $3000.00. From there, all packages are customizable and include a variety of different options of time, print options, and second shooters. All wedding packages run between $3000-6050 depending on your wants and needs so please contact me for more details!

Elopement collections are available for nuptials with less than 10 guests and begin at $1600. These are only available Monday-Thursday during the months of October-April. Weekends may be considered off season, or if booked within one month of the date!

Lifestyle sessions begin at $595 and are about capturing you in your home. This is one of the few places I believe people can let their guard down and just be themselves. Lifestyle sessions can be a variety of different things, but always take place in your home. So whether you're celebrating your first year of marriage, just bought a new home or are having your first baby these different seasons of life are meant to be captured. 

 
 

Where are you based? Currently I am living in East Texas and work out of Dallas! I travel often so check to see my travel dates here

Why do you shoot film? In a digital age I get this question a lot and it really comes down to the quality of film. There is something that film can do that no amount of post process in digital can accomplish. Color tones, texture and the richness film embodies is incredible. I shoot both film and digital because just like I think there are perfect times for film, I think there is perfect times for digital as well. 

Will you travel for weddings? Yes! Traveling is one of those things that makes my heart go wild. I've had the honor to travel all over for weddings so contact me about travel rates to your neck of the woods.

What do you shoot with? I shoot both Film and Digital. My Film gear includes a Contax 645 and a Canon 1V and Digital includes a Canon 5D Mark III, Mark II and a variety of lenses.

How do I pay you? Do you have a payment plan? Cash, Check, or via the online payment option. There is a 50% non-refundable retainer to hold your date. You can pay the remaining balance in whatever increments you’d like as long as it is all paid off 30 days before the wedding.

How many photos will I get from the shoot/wedding? Generally, you will receive between 50 and 75 photos for every hour.

Will we get featured in a magazine or blog? If I believe your weddings is fit for a specific publication, I may submit it but it is no guarantee. If this is something you're hoping for please let me know and I may be able to help you brainstorm unique details to you guys. 

Do you use a second shooter? In my basic package a second shooter is an add-on, but I feel completely comfortable shooting alone, especially for smaller weddings and elopements. My top two packages do include second shooters. We can always discuss the details of your day and decide if a second shooter would be beneficial.
