Nope! Sorry! Part of the experience you’re investing in is getting beautifully hand edited images that compliment you and your environment. Trust me, you’ll want the finished product;)
Most RAW files are much too big to be transferred in bulk via email, and can only be opened through professional photography software.
I take THOUSANDS of photos on your wedding day. Many of them are going to be duplicates, some will NOT be flattering. I always cull (sort through and delete some) prior to editing and sending you the finished gallery!
Many have described my work as photojournalistic, organic, and natural.
I try to capture the more authentic, raw moments with a few “prompted" or "posed" photos thrown in the mix (for Mom’s fridge). I try to stay true to the feeling of the image, enhancing what is already there, rather than editing the image into something that it’s not.
Cool! Darker photos can be fun!
I can do one of two things:
Shoot in natural low light which will result in a more moody/grainy image.
Shoot with a flash which will result in a more clear image but will not have a natural light affect.
I suggest 30 minutes to an hour to relax, separate yourself from the chaos, and be with your love.
Take the time to get the PHENOMENAL portraits of the two of you that you’ll look back on from years to come. If you’re crunched for time, we can always make it work in 10-15 minutes!
It depends on the wedding!
The longer I’m there, the more I will be shooting!
Typically I cap it off at 1,200-1,800. That's A LOT of photos. On average I probably deliver 1,200.
I love Canon!
I shoot with 2 5D Mk IV camera bodies on wedding dates, and always have a third camera in my bag for another backup.
My favorite lenses to use are my 35mm 50mm, and 85mm, but I also have various zoom and macro lenses as well.

I’d love to chat with you about your vision and see if we’d be a good fit! Then I'll have you look through my investment guide with all the packages I offer to see which would work the best with your vision - Then I just require a 50% deposit to secure your date!
For weddings and elopements, 4-6 weeks but no longer than 8.
For lifestyle, seniors, & headshots, 1 week, no longer than 2.
I offer complementary engagement sessions with the majority of my wedding/elopement packages. That means I’m offering up a shoot of a $450 value for FREE as a ‘thank you’ for booking your wedding with me!
If you and your hunny decide to opt out of the engagement session, I do not offer any refunds for the value of that session.
That’s absolutely OK!
I’m happy to talk with you about how you envision your day and set up a custom package that fits your wedding. Shoot me an email and let’s talk about it!
For driving: anything within a 60 mile radius is free! After 60 miles I charge $1 per mile.
For over 3 hrs travel: 1 night lodging.
For over 4 hrs travel: 2 nights lodging.
For flying: the cost of the airfare, at least 2 nights lodging and food stipend (also dependent on the location).
YES YES YES!! I am down for anything.
For certain “bucket list locations” I offer FREE sessions with the purchase of airfare and lodging.
Shoot me an email with questions on that ;)
Yes I do!!
I have a handful of super talented photographer friends who I LOVE to have second shoot with me. Only an additional $650!
Check out my investment page for my starting prices for my packages! If you fill out my contact form I'll get right back to you with my pdf investment guide with my various packages and pricing information.
I deliver your photos via online gallery! The platform I use is called Pic-Time. You will be able to download the images to your computer or phone, share on social media, and make prints. I also have an online shop where you can order custom prints/products online. As the photographer, I retain the copyright to the images. This means I can use the images for publicity or however I see fit. You as the client retain the printing rights to use the images for personal reasons.
Every wedding and elopement is different - however, my weekends tend to start booking out around a year beforehand!
As soon as you're engaged I'd recommend reaching out and having a discussion with your vendors regarding their availability.
On average, 6 months to a year is probably your safest bet!
I have plenty of friends in the industry I’d be happy to refer to you!
I market more towards elopements/weddings but I absolutely love shooting lifestyle sessions.
This could include families, couples, branding, maternity - pretty much anything.
My approach is more laid back and unposed to better capture natural interactions and emotions.
But I know some awesome videographers who I’d be happy to refer you to!
I live about one hour north of Spokane, WA in a little town called Chewelah!
Let me know what would work best and we can figure out a plan!
