FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why do you love shooting weddings?
Everyone who you've ever loved and cared about is at this thing! This will probably never happen again in your lifetime and that alone makes weddings pretty darn special! Personal vows, thoughtful touches, little bits of you are all over your wedding and that is super fun for me because it's never boring. We really enjoy getting to know each couple and it feels a lot more like shooting a friend's wedding than just some client. We don't even like the word client, it's impersonal. There is something so satisfying about capturing a moment that you know someone will hold dear for years to come. A mother of the bride welling up with happy tears, a best man toasting with the room in stitches, a grandparent cutting loose on the dance floor. There is just no telling what will happen on your wedding day but we will be there with our cameras ready to go! We also quite enjoy getting to know your family and friends and stretching our legs on the dance floor!
When can we expect to see our wedding photos?
Anywhere between 8 and 12 weeks depending on what season your wedding is in. Keep an eye out on Instagram & Facebook for sneak peeks! If you need a photo or two early for “thank you” cards or something along those lines we have no problem sending a few favourites.
Do you travel?
Absolutely! Feel free to send me more specific information on your location for more in-depth travel costs.
Who chooses our wedding portrait locations?
We do! We location scout for all of our weddings with the specific details of your day in mind. Timeline, weather and light all play a factor and although we are open to your suggestions we ultimately pick the perfect places for your pics.
Can we upgrade our package to add hours closer to the wedding date?
Of course! We try to assist you in planning things out so your day runs smoothly. Ideally the hours can be added to your final instalment a month before your wedding so we don't have to interrupt your wedding day to chat about this. However, if we notice your day is running behind we will discuss this with you so you can decide if you would like to add additional coverage. Additional hours are $300/hour.
How many images from our wedding can we expect to receive?
Between 500 and 1000 images depending on the length of time you had us there shooting.
Do you backup your images?
Oh yeah! As soon as we get home from your wedding, no matter how late, all images are uploaded and then immediately backed-up to a second location. There's no messin' around with backups! We also have a backup system in place for completed galleries.
We are not used to being in front of a camera!
Don't you even worry about it! This is why I include complimentary engagement sessions in all packages. It's our chance to get to know each other and for you to feel comfortable in front of my lens. Chances are your session will feel a lot like a fun outing with a dorky 3rd wheel. I'll get you moving, talking and interacting so the images are natural. I work with your comfort level and my goal is to increase it! I promise to direct you well and be clear with what I want from you. I don't start right up in your face but by the end of the session you'll be totally used to me, a seasoned pro.
Has your work been published anywhere?
Sure has! For weddings I've been published in Junebug Weddings, Style Me Pretty, The Refinery Magazine, Vancouver Bride, Hey Wedding Lady and 100 Layer Cake. For fashion and lifestyle I've been published in Huffington Post, The Province, Zeum Magazine, Nordic Man, KNEON Magazine, Institute Magazine, Hush Magazine, Freshly Worn Magazine and Elements Magazine.
