Every wedding is as unique as the people it's bringing together. I work closely with my couples to understand their vision and bring it to life.
I help brides and grooms figure out the timeline of their day, so we can ensure I capture what's important to them.
Whether you're dreaming of beautiful golden-hour portraits, or it's getting a snapshot of Grandma kicking it on the dance floor that's important,
I'll work with you to plan the day accordingly.
I've also got plenty of wedding planning tips I've picked up along the way to share with you, so you can take what you need and leave the rest.
where are you based?
I live on Vancouver Island, on the rugged west coast of British Columbia, Canada. I was born on the east coast, in Newfoundland, and have since slowly made my way across Canada over the course of a lifetime road trip. Apparently I have a soft spot for big rocks in the sea.
Do you travel?
Absolutely! I jump at the chance to explore other parts of the country and the rest of the world. Travel keeps me curious. I'm happy to add your destination to my travel itinerary and will work with you to make a custom package that works for your wedding. I offer discounts if your wedding is in a place I've been dying to get to, so reach out!
what is your shooting style?
My background is in journalism, and my shooting style reflects that. I specialize in telling the story of your day, from beginning to end. On the day, you'll find me where the action is, capturing those magic moments as they happen. During the portrait part of the wedding day I help direct you, keeping things fun and comfortable, and capturing your interactions. I'm great at directing hard-of-hearing relatives, raising a smile from the grumpy uncle and I get excited about what I do.
do you use backup gear?
Yes, always. For you camera-lovers, I shoot Canon. My primary camera body is a 5D Mark 3 and my backup is a 6D. I bring an array of lenses, batteries and memory cards, and the photos are backed up immediately after your wedding.
when will we receive our images?
I will send you a sneak peak photo a few days after your wedding. This way you have something to share with your friends and family right away, or to share on social media that 'You're married!'. You will receive your digital, edited files within eight weeks of your wedding day, via an online gallery.
what are your rates?
Elopements are priced individually, so connect with me to discuss!
Full day weddings start at $3090. I offer a variety of packages to suit your timeline, location and plans. Get in touch and I'll send you my full information package.
Do you offer albums and prints?
I sure do! I currently offer beautiful Vision Art wedding albums with a variety of options to suit your style and budget. Check them out here.
Prints can be ordered directly from your gallery - easy peasy!
how can we book?
Let's get to know each other! Tell me a bit about yourselves, your plans and what's inspiring you aesthetically so I can get a sense of your vision. This way we can make sure we're a good fit for before we start. Once that is taken care of, I require a retainer fee and a signed contract - and we're ready to go!
