What to Expect

I would like to hear from you about your wedding so I can send my pricing info or a custom quote. For weekend weddings, my typical coverage starts with 8 hours of coverage by myself and a second photographer. Rates range from $6,000 - $12,000+. Color-corrected, high-resolution downloads are always included. Engagement sessions, hardcover albums, additional hours, and rehearsal dinner coverage are also available. Read more about my process here.


I am more flexible with weekday weddings, weddings that occur in the slow season, or last-minute weekend weddings if I am still available. I like to know about your day, especially where your venue(s) are and how many guests you expect so I can send a quote for coverage without a second photographer, or for fewer than 8 hours if that is appropriate for your wedding. If you aren't sure, I can quickly help you determine how much coverage is best for your wedding on our consultation call.

Let's Get this Party Started

I work with people who want to bask in the love of their partner and who can’t wait to get their closest friends and family together to celebrate. Sound like you? I want to hear from you.


After our consultation if we decide that working together is a good fit, I will send both of you a contract to sign and send an invoice for a 50% deposit.

It depends on the event. It usually takes 4-8 weeks to turn around edited wedding photos.


Definitely! We use your online wedding gallery to get started and I make the custom design for you. Albums are made with premium materials and hand built in the US. They are gorgeous!

Yup. I can provide a COI to your venue if required.


I’m a Canon girl. My first camera was my dad’s Canon from the 70’s and it continued from there. I have two full frame Canon cameras, 10 lenses and 2 flashes. The reason for all the gear is to make sure I am always prepared even if a lens or camera goes down during a shoot.

Basic coverage always includes an online gallery for your photos and a high resolution download. They are color corrected in my style, adjusted for exposure and ready to print.

Upon agreeing to work together I will send out a contract and invoice for a 50% retainer fee. Then I will reach out to you 6 weeks before the wedding to start planning. I will ask for your timeline, send you a link to a questionnaire, and we will set up a call 1-2 weeks before your wedding to go over everything.

I was originally moved by the work I saw that captured the human condition in a raw and unfiltered way. Great photographers like Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Diane Arbus, and Josef Koudelka, were very influential as I developed my eye. Though I don’t photograph the same subject matter as they did, I look for the same truth and beauty I find present in their work.


I started photographing professionally in 2010. I have photographed about 500 weddings by now!

Over 20 years! Oh boy, I can’t believe it’s been that long. My life has revolved around photography ever since I started developing my own black and white prints in the high school darkroom. After high school I traveled throughout Europe with my best friend and my camera, where I originally developed my photo-journalistic style. After that amazing experience I had a portfolio which got me into my dream college, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Since I am originally from California so I was eager to resettle on the west coast as soon as I could, which was in 2010.

I specialize in weddings, and I love photographing natural and candid moments. A wedding brings up so much emotion and excitement and I love capturing those unscripted moments. I also enjoy photographing events and portraits.
