I pay my rent in the lovely Long Beach, California! However, I was born and raised in Bakersfield, moved to the Bay Area for a few years, and then we finally landed home in Long Beach to plant our roots here in SoCal. But with everywhere we went, I grew my business there as well, so traveling is an active part of my business. I have currently traveled to the following places for my jobs: Nevada, Oregon, Colorado (x2), Massachusetts, Maine, and Greece! So you tell me where your wedding will be, and I will go! No place is too far.
There is no limit! Every wedding is so different with size, hours, details, etc. I guarantee a minimum of 600 images for most wedding packages, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get a hell of a lot more! I give you alllllll the good stuff, even if that means 6 images that are similar, but your expressions are different. I want to make sure my clients have full confidence they received the best of the best!
I know you’re excited to see your photos, and I’m excited to get them to you!! The contract you sign says you will receive them within 4-8 weeks. However, I’ve been known to deliver weddings one week later! ;) I just definitely aim to get your special wedding delivery box at your front door by your one month wedding anniversary!
I provide you with a beautiful online gallery with all of your images, from which you can download, share, and order prints. I also gift all of my couples a special wedding delivery box. The box includes a USB of all of their edited images, their polaroids, and a newspaper of their wedding day… because I’m about documenting allll of your day, including what happened in the world. This box I mail to your front door around a month after your wedding. There is something so fun about receiving something tangible, and everyone loves receiving fun mail!
You will see a sneak peek within 24 hours of your wedding day! Often times I’m able to even text you some sneaks during the dinner hour of your reception! That way you can post a pro pic as your new profile picture and not Uncle Bob’s sub par cell phone shot.
My average wedding for SoCal is in the $2,200-2,800 mark for around 6 hours of coverage and a complimentary engagement session. Elopements or small weddings (less than 50 people) start at around $1,200. Engagement Sessions (without a wedding package) begin at $450.
Yes! With all of my sessions/bookings, you receive a print/share release. This means that you can print your photos wherever you wish! You can also purchase photos directly through your online gallery through my professional print lab. The quality I can guarantee definitely is superior than any one hour photo option. But if you do decide to go the route of printing yourself, I recommend Artifact Uprising or Mpix. Or if you need a one hour option, I recommend Costco. Just please don’t print your beautiful photos at horrific drug store printers.
I got you! Part of hiring me is also hiring my knowledge from the past 120+ weddings I’ve photographed. Most of my couples have been a wedding guest plenty of times, but never the one planning the whole thing! Well lucky for you, I know the ins and outs of wedding days like the back of my hand. I really work with you on your timeline to make sure it flows perfectly. I then act like a time keeper day of, making sure that the day moves according to plan! I also work closely with your other vendors like coordinator, DJ, and videographer, to make sure we are the dream team for you!
Reach out and find out if your date is available! You can fill out a contact form here. If your date is available, we will get the ball rolling in discussing pricing and details. A signed contract and a non-refundable 25% retainer is required to reserve your date. Your remaining balance is due one month before your date, and you are able to make as many payments as you’d like before then.
You betcha! Some venues require proof of insurance, and I am happy to provide them the documents they need. I do things legit!
Absolutely! Go ahead and submit a contact form here. I fully believe in transparency and want to make sure you get all the answers you need!
