Remember the first official date you went on and how you mentally rehearsed all the things you could talk about? OMG, awkward silences are the worst! Or the time you had to meet their parents and be on your best behaviour? Ahh...the memories.

And look where you are now - newly engaged, planning your big day and scoping me out as your elopement photographer (I’m counting on it)...Huge congrats on your engagement and upcoming elopement! Woohoo! I’m incredibly excited for you both.

Probably preaching to the choir but elopements are very intimate affairs and usually include no more than 10 people. Without 100s of guests to plan a chaotic party around, you’re bringing it back to the basics and focusing on what really matters...the deep love and soulful connection that’s brought you two together, with a little hint of adventure.

Belly-aching laughs, snotty tears, and confetti shower, let’s document your glorious day and create a bliss-load of memories together. Count me in, baby!

Engagement Photography

Fine Art Albums

Alrighty, we’ve got your elopement photos sorted (cos you know you wanna pick me) but have you considered an engagement session? This is a wonderful opportunity for us to meet face-to-face and get to know each other on an even deeper level, before your elopement day.
A bit squirmy in front of the camera? Use our engagement sesh as practice and I’ll make sure we never have a cringy, awkward moment. No fake laughing or forced posing, just relax and be your authentic selves.
By the mountain or along the shoreline, we’ll capture just the two of you doing your thing in a super chill location of your choice. You can keep it casual or don your wildest party gear, I don’t give a flip as long as we have a rad time (and you laugh at my dumb jokes).   

Until the robots take over, I’d love for us to keep it a lil’ old school. Your elopement day memories don’t deserve to die on a dusty USB stick, they should be a tear-jerkin’ reminder of your blissful journey of saying ‘heck yeah, I do’ to each other.
Your elopement album is an investment that you’ll never regret. Seriously! Your first-ever heirloom, a storybook of your favourite moments, this fine art album will be your go-to whenever you have a nostalgic whim. This is what you’ll pass down to future generations, encapsulating the epic romance that’s intertwined your adventurous souls forevermore.

Let’s savour your newly engaged happiness and prolong your stay on cloud nine

Tangible memories to celebrate the beginning of your forever

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 elopements for? 
7 years as a professional elopement 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! 

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! 


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 elopements 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. 1-4 months 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!
