We all know the importance of embracing each moment that we are given and your wedding day is no exception to that mindset. This day, your wedding day, is more than a big party, it's more than all the beautiful decor and delicious food. It's about the unconditional and undeniable love and friendship that you share with your partner. It's about celebration, laughter, tears and happiness; memories created between your family and friends. Simply put, it's about love.
You deserve the best experience possible and that my friends, is where I come in. To not only give you incredible photos but to provide a stress free unforgettable experience as your photographer. To capture your memories honestly but also be someone who has your best interest at heart.
Each wedding is different from the next and my goal is to capture the story of your day that is completely unique to who you are as individuals. Weddings are not a one-size-fits-all situation, which is why each wedding that I document is curated with care, intention and a purposeful heart.

How do we know if we are good fit for each other?
Choosing a photographer is a big decision! There are so many factors to weigh and I know I'm not going to be for everyone and that's ok! And here's the sitch people, there is a lot of talk about having an 'ideal client' and you know what that means to me? Someone who respects me, trusts me and values me. I am here because you and your photos are my priority and you're here because hopefully you think I am a semi decent human, you like my style and wanna have fun while capturing an important day in your life! If this resonates with you - then HECK ya, we will be a good fit!
Do you meet with people before booking?
Typically, FaceTime, email and a phone call is how I communicate with the majority of my couples. If you would like to meet in person and share a coffee or a beer that can be absolutely arranged, however my schedule is usually based around the boss man AKA my Toddler.
How long have you been photographing weddings for?
7 years as a professional wedding photographer!
Where are you based? Do you travel?
HECK YES I travel! I am local to Edmonton, Alberta but you can always find me in Banff, Jasper, Canmore and I am often in Victoria BC visiting family!
Do you help us with the planning process?
Yes! I am here for you! If you need any recommendations or anything I can do to make this process easier for you - let me know!
What should we wear for our session?
Don't you worry - I got you covered! I will send you my guide on what to wear and will be there to help with picking out any outfits if you need the extra hand!
How are my photos delivered?
You get your images via a personal online gallery. All the photos downloaded straight to your computer! The gallery will stay up for a full year but I encourage you to backup your photos immediately upon receiving them!
Can we have the RAW images?
I do not give out any RAW files or unedited images! This is a huge part of the whole process and why you hired me- to be your creative eye! I promise I will give you the best of the best!
How many images can I expect?
For lifestyle sessions you can expect roughly 40+ images. For weddings I shoot on average 50-70 photos per hour, pending on what is going on in the day. I shoot with a story telling perspective so I try to make sure I am giving you as many photos as I can that tell the story of your day!
When will we receive our photos?
Delivery times vary. 4-8 weeks depending on my workload but I work my butt off to get them to you as fast as I can.
Do you have a second shooter?
Second shooters can be added onto your package for sure! Although I am very comfortable shooting on my own and most weddings I am solo!
Can you help us with building a timeline for our wedding day?
Absolutely! My first initial phone call with you, we will go over your day, your vision and I will help build a timeline specific to your individual wants and needs!
What does it take to book with you?
A signed contract and a 30% non-refundable retainer! Boom. You are family and we are in it for life!
