Where are you based? Do you travel?
I currently live in San Francisco and I visit my love in New York City quite often. I am available for travel for domestic weddings near these two cities. International travel will be limited to one wedding a year.
I don’t want super posed photographs, but I also want to look beautiful
I get this all the time. The way I “pose” my couples is considered much closer to artistic direction. I also typically provide upfront tips on ways to stand and sit that will emphasize your best features, lessen awkwardness, and you’ll understand it when you have your engagement session with me. I want you to look natural, and the emotions are real, but I also want to flatter you and make sure I capture your best side =)
Do I really need an engagement session?
Without a doubt, couples who have had an engagement session with me are much more relaxed in front of the camera on the wedding day. Most all of my clients, before they met me, have never been professionally photographed together! Like a hair and makeup trial, like a rehearsal, photography doesn’t just happen, it takes time to develop a relationship with your photographer. An engagement session can only help you, so much that I now include it standard in my wedding coverage. Plus, it’s a great way to get photos in casual clothing for save the dates, your wedding website, and just for home decor!
What if I am in a long distance relationship or live in a different city from you?
I will travel to you or you will travel to me, we will make it work.
