Hey buddy, real quick, BIG LOVE and congrats on getting engaged! Thinking back to your first-ever smooch, can you believe how far you’ve come?! Woooooo! I know...so many exclamation marks and this is me being restrained, ha!
If you’re currently knee-deep in the chaos of wedding planning and are feeling super excited yet kinda overwhelmed all at the same time, I totally feel you. But just remember, your wedding day is SO much more than a big party with beautiful decor and yummy food. It’s about the unconditional love and rock-solid friendship that you share with your partner.
It’s about the celebration, laughter, tears and unbridled happiness; memories created between your family and friends. Simply put, it’s about the two of you and your insane connection. That’s all that matters!

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 British Columbia 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!
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. 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 customizing your package to fit your needs is my middle name!
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!
