WHAT THE PROCESS like?


I work closely with my couples to understand their vision and bring it to life.
It all starts with a meet up (Skype or in-person) to get to know each other and swap stories. Let's be friends!
Once we know we are a good fit, you secure your date with a signed booking package and retainer fee.
After that, the real fun begins!
I'll share with you my wedding planning tips and provide unlimited consultation.
Whether you're dreaming of beautiful golden-hour portraits, or getting a photo of Grandma kicking it on the dance floor, 
I'll help you plan the photography timeline accordingly.
I want to take some of the stress out of wedding planning and help make the process fun.


faq's

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. 

do you use backup gear?

Yes, always. For you camera-lovers, I shoot Canon. My primary camera body is a 5D Mark 4 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 post a few sneak peak photos to my Facebook page a few days after your wedding. This way you have something to share with your friends and family right away. You will receive your digital, edited files within ten weeks of your wedding day, via an online gallery. Your complimentary USB will arrive in the mail a few weeks after receiving your gallery.

what are your rates?

Elopements are priced individually, so connect with me to discuss!
Full day weddings start at $4000. 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 heirloom wedding albums. 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 $1500 retainer fee and a signed contract - and we're ready to go!

 


I also specialize in intimate portraiture and boudoir.
