I’m currently in Toronton, ON, and I love traveling and incorporating it into my work: so yes! However, travel fees will vary depending on the following considerations: travel cost (flight/gas), hotels, and food. If we can work together to make it more cost effective, my travel fees will be lower. Feel free to contact me for more info!
WHAT'S THE PROCESS TO BOOK YOU?
Painless! If we’re near each other I’ll take you for coffee or drinks and we can chat! First, feel free to fill out the contact form on my front page to tell me a bit more about who you are and what you’re planning so I can prepare the best info for you, or just send me a straight up email or call me. You’ll hear back from me within 24-48 hours to schedule a meet up or answer any questions you may have.
After we discuss the details and we think we’re a good fit, we sign a photography agreement, you get a copy, I get a copy, and the date is booked! Voila! You have your photographer/kleenex holder/banana and granola bar supplier!
FOR WEDDINGS, DO YOU OFFER ONLY PACKAGES OR CAN WE TALK TAILORING?
Anything you want to try and do, I want to try too! The packages I have are often the best for you as they tend to fit most types of weddings and desires for the best price and are based on experience, but I am always game for trying something new or mixing and matching.
ON THAT NOTE, WHAT ARE THE PACKAGES?
My packages start at $1500 (you can reach out to me for more details, I’ve got them!) and all include a free consultation (coffee/beer obv) with me, custom engagement/date session, an online gallery shareable with friends and family, and a personalized package with a USB of photos and other goodies! Photos are delivered within 3 weeks but I often share sneak peeks on my Facebook and Instagram pages!
Because I want to make sure I deliver an experience that’s just right for you, if you reach out I will be STOKED to send you prices/ideas/what’s included/goodies for you/answer any of your questions!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My style has been described as relaxed, intimate, natural, and fun. I am able to capture you at their most natural. People tend to feel themselves around me and often forget I’m there! I try to create a healthy mix of posed shots, those photos for the parents and grandparents, as well as the more candid, documentary-style moments that you might forget had even happened if they weren’t captured.
WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT STRUCTURE?
After going over the contract together, a non-refundable retainer fee of 40% is paid on the signing of the contract and booking the date. The rest of the payment must be made at minimum 2 months before the wedding, but feel free to let me know if you want to send it earlier! Any other type of photo session the payment is made the day of. I take etransfer, cash, or cheque.
ANY INFO ON THE CONTRACT/COPYRIGHT/LEGAL DEETS?
All clients must sign a photography agreement before any session. Don’t worry; I will go over this with you step by step and answer any questions you may have! It is very important to me that everyone I work with knows what to expect, what everything means, and the work that goes into our time together.
HOW DO YOU DELIVER THE PHOTOS?
I’ll send you a private online gallery of all your edited images that will be accessible for usually 1-2 weeks. You can download all your photos in high resolution and share the link with your friends and fam. For weddings, you’ll ALSO receive a package in the mail with a USB of the photos and some goodies.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU DELIVER? DO YOU INCLUDE ALL THE RAWs?
The number varies widely, as I don’t like to limit myself or your time with me!! Just know that you’ll definitely get enough. I do not send you the RAW photos, as often they are used for testing light, exposures, etc. and include photos that may be blurry, people blinking, etc. All the photos I send you are the best moments!
FOR WEDDINGS, WHY DO THEY ALL INCLUDE FREE ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
I encourage all my couples to have an engagement session. First of all, it’s complimentary in all my wedding packages, and second of all, engagements are important in and of themselves and should be celebrated! Lastly, it gives you guys a chance to hang out with me, get comfortable in front of the camera, and lets us get to know each other. By the time your wedding rolls around you’ll be good to go around a camera!
My other secret reason is that I love photos just because, and to have photos of you guys casual and hanging out doing your favorite stuff is just the best to me, and you’ll love having them!
I'M NOT VERY COMFORTABLE IN FRONT A CAMERA, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
First of all: don’t worry! I can guarantee you that I have had hesitant participants in couples shoots only to have the BEST time ever and really appreciate the day! I promise I make things comfortable for you and won’t make you do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. My style is to catch you as yourselves, so sure, I might ask you to cuddle up close but I promise to do it in a way that makes everyone laugh and be comfy. And in the end you’ll have great photos AND memories! Most people who are shy at first become star models in less than ten minutes. My shoots are pretty laid back and casual, and we tend to hang out more than not. I will give you guidance and direction as well. Most of the time I like to just capture you/guys laughing and enjoying each other. And I’ll make plenty of bad jokes to help you out.
WHERE DO WE HANG OUT FOR OUR ENGAGEMENT/LIFESTYLE SESSION?
It’s great if you can choose a place that is important to you/means something/represents you. What do you like to do? What places do you like to go? Maybe it’s getting coffee and going on a walk, or hitting up the local ice rink, or a bookstore and beers. If you still have no clue, don’t worry, I can help you find a great place. Note: we may move around from the start point to go on an adventure!
WHAT'S YOUR DREAM DATE?
Going to browse a bookshop, walking through cute streets, and then seeing some local live music and drinking some beers! Gee thanks for asking.
