When did you start pursuing photography?
I've grown up always having a camera in my hand (they were only point and shoot cameras, but cameras nonetheless!). My family owns a church so at about age 8, I started attending the annual Valentine's Day banquet and would go around to all of the tables and ask each couple if they'd like their picture taken. Of course I had ZERO idea what I was doing, but they took a chance and purchased my $1 Walgreens print offer in order to document the night with their date. You could say my entrepreneurial spirit was born at this age! I started shooting as a career three and a half years ago whenever I decided that I wanted to pursue this hobby full time.
What areas of photography do you focus in?
My main focus is weddings and high school seniors. I love working with couples during the wedding planning process by shooting their engagement session, bridal session, and eventually the wedding day! I also take on a select amount of family sessions per year.
What gear do you shoot with?
I shoot with a full-frame Canon body and a variety of Canon and Sigma lenses, however, my favorite lens is my Canon 50 mm 1.2 L!
How do I book a session with you?
In order to book a session, visit the Contact Tab on my site's menu bar! On this tab you can submit a Contact Form. From here, I can send you all of the necessary information you'll need! If you decide to move forward, a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer fee is due in order to be considered "booked."
How far in advance should I book my session?
I currently book portrait sessions about two months in advance. I book wedding days anywhere from 6 months to a year and a half in advance. I am currently booking wedding dates through December 2018.
Will you help us with posing and clothing ideas?
Most definitely! I try to take a more natural approach to posing and will help with clothing recommendations so that you have the best session possible! By covering these topics prior to the session, I'm able to get natural and raw emotions, efficiency in shooting, and comfortability in front of the camera. I feel that this style of posing helps portray my clients in their best and true state. I'll also send a detailed clothing style guide prior to the session in order to help ease the process of outfit selection!
