Where are you located?
I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado! I’m within driving distance to Denver and all mountain areas! Also, I grew up in New Mexico, so I travel back there often.
Do you travel? If so, what fees are expected?
Yessss!! I love to travel! If I can get there by car or plane, then I’ll be there!
In Colorado: Anywhere 3 hours beyond Colorado Springs may require travel fees (hotel + gas). Trust me. Nobody wants me driving back home for three plus hours after an 8 hour wedding day. That can get a little sketchy.
In New Mexico: Locations within 2 hours of Clovis, NM will receive a 15% off on wedding packages! Why you ask? Because that means I also get to see and stay with family. If your wedding is in Albuquerque/Santa Fe or elsewhere in New Mexico then normal travel fees will be added.
What’s in your camera bag?
I shoot with a Nikon d750 and a 50mm and 35mm Nikon lenses. For your wedding day I have another backup Nikon 610 camera and will have 1-2 additional lenses depending on the type of wedding (24-70 or 70-200).
I also own a Mamiya 645 film camera and Nikon F100 that you may see me with too! I love shooting film and try to incorporate it as much as I can on a wedding day or at a session.
What’s your experience shooting weddings?
I’ve been shooting weddings since 2016 across New Mexico and Texas. In 2018 I moved to Colorado and had a miserable teaching job that when the school year ended, I got the heck outta there! 2019 is my first full-time wedding season in Colorado and I’m getting to work with incredible, sweet couples.
What is your booking process?
To book an engagement, portrait, or other session please fill out a contact form. We’ll hop on a short phone call or meet up for drinks or coffee to hear about your love story and vision for your wedding day. Next, I’ll send over a contract and payment information. Typically, payment can be made before the session or is due the day of the session.
To book your wedding I require a 50% deposit along with a signed contract. The remainder of the total cost is due one week before your wedding day. With most of my couples I divide the cost into three or four different payment you pay every few months leading up to the month before your wedding. We’ll chat and decide what type of payment plan works best for y’all!
Do we receive the RAW images from our wedding or session?
Sorry, but no. I take 1000+ photos on your wedding day and the major part of my job as your photographer is to cull and edit those photos to tell the story of your wedding day. Plus, part of why you hire me is for my creative eye and for my style! The final edited photos you receive are the best photos from your wedding day or from your session! If it’s a good photo you can guarantee that I’m going to edit it and include it in your final gallery. However, if you feel like there’s a photo that I took, but didn’t deliver to you please ask!
