Q: How would you describe your style?
I use a style that is a combination of journalistic storytelling and creative contemporary portraiture. On your wedding day, I focus my attention on finding little moments that you may never have known occurred. I try not to interrupt the day and force images to happen but let the emotional spark of the day lead me through your wedding day.
Q: Will you replicate these photos, or shoot in this style?
Every photographer has their own style, and my style is made up of the vision I have when I tell stories. Please look through my portfolio and blog to ensure you will be absolutely over the moon about the style I shoot in. This is your wedding day and you deserve the photography that makes your heart skip a beat, not be the replication of hundreds of photographs you have already seen.
Q: Do you Travel?
Absolutely, I love travelling! Any wedding within 150 kilometres of Toronto has no additional travel fees. I am available to capture weddings all over North America and throughout Europe. For destination weddings or long-distance weddings, I only ask you provide me with a way there and back and somewhere to sleep. I’d love to be with you anywhere in the world.
Q: What about engagement sessions?
Of course! Engagement sessions are included in most of my packages and are the perfect opportunity to get to know one another and have fun! Engagement photos are also perfect for save the dates and RSVPs!
Q: Will you be covering my wedding?
Yes! Every couple’s wedding is covered by me. Being comfortable with your photographer’s presence throughout your wedding day is very important to me; the last thing you want is to feel like strangers.
Q: How many photographers can I expect on my wedding day?
I work with couples to determine whether a second photographer is needed at their wedding. On my website you will view weddings where I have worked alone, and with a second photographer. Ask me about the advantages and disadvantages of each!
Q: Do you do formal photos?
Family is important. If requested, I work with you to set aside a time to get some lasting family photos. Please let me know the who, and we’ll work together to get everyone in!
Q: What is a first look? Do you do them?
A first look is a private moment for the bride and groom to see each other just before the wedding. It can be intimate, emotional and incredibly powerful. First looks are not for everyone, and some couples prefer not to see each other until they are walking down the aisle. Some added bonuses of seeing each other before the wedding is being able to do any family or formal photographs before the ceremony, allowing you to go straight into all the fun stuff right after the ceremony. Depending on the time of the ceremony, first-looks also give us ample time as the sun goes down to get beautiful golden hour photographs of you both.
Q: Can others take photographs?
Absolutely. Family members love taking photographs and I love seeing it happening; it’s all part of the excitement! I just ask that any guests wanting to take photographs are mindful of space around me so that I don’t miss any of your moments while telling your story.
Q: Do you edit your photographs? How many will I get? When will I get them?
I fully edit and colour-correct all of your photographs with great detail to ensure the highest quality images are being delivered to you.
I shoot thousands of photographs in a single wedding to capture just the right moment. Depending on the length of your wedding, and other circumstances, the average delivery has anywhere from 400-850 images.
The average delivery time after your wedding is 4-6 weeks in the busy season. At the same time, we will also be in touch to talk about album design. You’re more than welcome to come to my place and we can look at some albums over wine, or meet at a coffee shop. I strive very hard to turn around images before the 4 weeks, as I can barely pull myself from my computer looking at them.
Q: What equipment do you use?
I use full frame Nikon cameras that are of the highest quality along with prime and zoom lenses.
Q: Am I allowed to print photos, share them, or post them online?
I personally deliver high-quality, high-resolution photographs that are ready for you to print as small or as large as possible. You are given full-rights to print wherever and however you want, just please do not edit any of the images. I do not provide “raw” files.
Q: Tell me more about wedding albums!
Your wedding is photographed with the final vision to be made into an album that you cherish forever. The albums I use are made of high-quality archival paper and supreme quality leather or linen. They are the perfect way to relive your wedding day and share the love with family and friends.
Q: Can we meet you?
Of course! I love making new friends and I’d love to sit down with you and talk about your exciting day. You can contact me here!
