IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO HIDES BEHIND THEIR FANCY CAMERA AND SENDS YOU PRETTY PHOTOS A FEW MONTHS AFTER YOUR WEDDING - I'M PROBABLY NOT THE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOU!
Your relationship is unique, beautiful, and wholly yours and I create photos with that in mind! Think of me as your professional third wheel who you can trust completely to capture all of those in-between moments that happen when you're not paying attention. These moments are usually called "candid photos" but I like to think of them as real life. I will, of course, get beautiful photos of your family (the ones that Mom loves!) but I want to create photos for you that you'll put into your wedding album and when you open it on your 50th anniversary you'll be instantly taken back to your wedding day - the emotions, the laughter, the tears, and the adventure that is your love story.
Hiring a photographer for your wedding is more than just checking one more thing off your to-do list. It should be an

CHECK OUT SOME FAQS
How many images do we get back?
Every session and wedding is different! I don't like to promise a certain number because it depends on so many things. BUT I will never withhold a meaningful photo from you! Rest assured that you will receive every single photo that I believe you will love and cherish. (If you're really looking for a number I usually deliver between 90-100 per hour of coverage)
How long will it take to get our images?
For weddings you'll receive a sneak peek gallery within a few days! I KNOW how excited you are to see your images and share your day with everyone so I will send you a couple of the best ones from a few different moments of your day. I'll deliver the rest of your images within 30 days! For adventure sessions you'll receive your images within 14 days. I also love to post sneak peeks as soon as I possible can so make sure to follow along on Instagram for those!
What if we feel awkward in front of the camera?
Not to worry! It's part of my job to make sure you don't feel this way. I'll give you prompts and direction that help you feel comfortable and like yourselves. Death to the prom pose and forced smiles!! One of the things I always hear from my clients after their sessions is how much fun they had and how surprisingly easy it was. Trust me, you're in good hands!
Can we have the RAW images?
That's a no, ma'am! A lot of time goes into editing your images. I edit all of my photos the same way so what you see on my website or social media is what you're images will look like (depending on lighting situations, the colour of walls or surroundings, etc.).
Will you Photoshop us?
Nope! A huge part of my photography approach is capturing people just the way they are. I won't touch that natural beauty, including fly away hairs, bags under eyes, etc. If you have a pesky pimple please feel free to let me know! Sometimes it's hard to tell, during the editing process, whether it's a pimple or a birthmark.
Do you offer discounts?
What should we wear to our Adventure Session?
I have a What To Wear Guide that you will receive after you book your session with me! You can also click here to check out my What To Wear Guide Pinterest board for some ideas.
What if there is bad weather?
To be honest rainy, cloudy days are my favourite. They make for the BEST photos! Being in Alberta if we book our session in the colder months we may have to play it by ear closer to the day of your session and if the weather is dangerous, too cold, or will damage my gear in any way we can reschedule. We can also book a studio! There are lots of cute ones in the city.
What if we need to reschedule or cancel?
The retainer you pay to book your session or wedding is non-refundable. This means that I have put your name in my calendar and have probably said no to other work. If you need to cancel or reschedule you'll have to tell me six months prior to our session or your wedding day. If you tell me within six months to our session or your wedding day then you'll have to pay the remaining balance of your invoice.
