For me, I am captivated by images that are more than just perfect poses and beautiful edits. I care about memories and emotions, human connection, and noticing beauty that is already there. I wanna photograph that raw stuff because it'll outlive any artificial pose I could come up with for you any day. Curiosity is everything to me. Observing moments, carefully documenting them honestly and beautifully as they unfold on their own is how I aim to approach every wedding + shoot. I value play, intimacy, and trying new things. I am privileged to work with every single one of my clients and I put their comfort + trust with me as a top priority by listening well and developing a solid connection with them before we get to work. I am well accustomed to hearing "we are so awkward in front of the camera!" and the like. I hear ya, I'm with ya there. I am not trying to work with super models, I am here for all your real humanness and I will offer plenty of direction, prompting, and even some silly games. By the end of it, I want you to look at your photos and think, "ahh, that is so us".
Do you travel? — Yep! We have passports all ready to go, and will go just about anywhere. Wedding packages include travel to Seattle or San Diego, CA. Inquire for more non-local rates. No accommodations may be necessary for Portland, Eastern WA, Tokyo, and San Francisco.
What do you shoot with? — Jon and I both shoot with Canon 5D cameras and a range of Canon prime + zoom lenses as well as flashes, tripods, and a Canon AE-1 film camera.
How do we book you? — Get in touch with me using the contact form to get all the details about our wedding + engagement packages, as well as family and portrait package options. A 50% non-refundable deposit and signed contract officially books us for your wedding.
Do you shoot all weddings with your husband? — Yes. Each wedding package includes two shooters. I shoot all other non-wedding sessions solo.
Are you insured? — Yep. Both our gear and our business are insured with equipment and liability insurance.
What do we wear for our shoot? — I love helping to style my clients + can offer lots of direction based on our shoot location. I am pretty hands-off with outfits unless you ask for my input, every shoot is different. I also have style-inspired Pinterest boards, just ask :)
What products do you offer? — Every shoot includes all the edited digital files sent to you in your own private, secure online gallery and can be downloaded from there. Print + album options available for additional purchase through your online gallery.
