Frequently Asked Questions
what kind of wedding services do you offer?
we offer 2 photographers, engagement sessions, alllll kinds of photo albums + print options, a wedding video, a wedding "guide" chalk full of tips and suggestions, full-resolution edits with printing rights, and unlimited pep talks to get you through the planning season ;) to get more info on prices, send us a message via the link below!
how would you describe your style?
I love understated poses, photojournalistic approach, expressions of vulnerability, strength, playfulness, and timeless edits and colors. I just want you to feel amazing! I aim to photograph you in your truest form - whether that's bubbly and energetic, or quiet and subdued. I love photos that show context and ground you in their time and place, and that's my objective whenever I walk into a shoot.
how do we book you?
for portrait sessions, you can book easily online using the "book online" link in the menu bar! for weddings, get in touch with me using the contact form to let me in on all the details about your wedding, and I'll be in touch with more info about pricing and package options. a 50% non-refundable deposit and signed contract officially books us for your wedding.
do you shoot all weddings with your husband?
we offer the option of having Jon second shoot a full wedding with me for $250. i shoot all other non-wedding sessions solo.
how much would it cost to have you travel to our wedding?
we are experienced travelers, and will go just about anywhere! travel costs will vary depending on your location + needs. inquire with me for a custom travel quote! no accommodations costs may be necessary for portland, eastern wa, and tokyo.
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 and the vibe you're envisioning. once your session is booked, we'll get to chatting about these details!
help!!! we're super awkward in front of the camera!!
uhh, same here!! I've developed ways of prompting and posing to get the most flattering angles and expressions from people. I am not trying to work with supermodels, I am here for all your real humanity and I will offer plenty of direction, prompting, and space for you to just be you.
by the end of it, you'll look at your photos and think, "ahh, that is so us". (And maybe also, "damn, who is that?!")
