Frequently Asked Questions

What is Your

Approach?

As a photographer, my mission is to capture your love as authentically and candidly as possible. Bringing out more than meets the eye and finding beauty in simplicity is the core of my photography. When I edit a gallery, my goal is to make you feel something. I pursue fleeting moments; the small looks, soft touches and all the in-betweens. I'm here to showcase the culmination of your love and all the ways it was shown and felt on your special day so you and your loved ones can relive it for all the years to come.

Where are you located and are you available to travel?

I live on Vancouver Island in the city of Victoria and am available to travel anywhere your heart desires. If you’re from out of town and want to travel to the island, I’ve got you covered with an extensive list of locations and ideas to help bring your vision to life!

Do you help with planning?

Absolutely! Preparation is an indispensable part of the entire process and I take  it very seriously.  Once you have me officially booked as your photographer, you can count on me for everything from providing a list of the perfect locations, creating mood/style boards, helping with timelines, and everything in between.

What is your turnaround time?

For sessions I promise 3-4 weeks and for weddings I promise 8-12. I like to spend time creating GIFs, double exposures and creative art for my couples. You have the rest of your life to look back at these images. I want to make sure that every single one is perfect. You deserve the best of the best, not something rushed to meet a fast deadline. Don't worry, I provide you with sneak peeks within the first 48 hours to tide you over!

Tell Me Your Story

The most meaningful photos come from the heart. Please come to me as you are. Tell me what love means to you, tell me all the obstacles life has thrown at you.  Tell me so I can photograph you and everything that is important to you. Tell me so I can capture moments that are true to your heart.

Do you Photoshop your clients?

My photography is always about celebrating love authenticity. I share photos of all my clients no matter how they look because I want YOU to know that YOU are beautiful because we are all unique and different and important.

I won’t photoshop you taller or skinnier. I won’t photoshop the scar on your forehead that is a part of your identity. I won’t photoshop to alter what is real and true for you. I will however, photoshop out temporary blemishes like bruises and acne. I also always ask about your “favorite side” so I can pose you a bit better ;)

How many Photos will we get?

I promise my clients 50 images per hour to give a general idea of what to expect. However, each wedding is unique. My main focus is to include all of the images from your day to create a storyline in the most intentional and authentic way I know. Underpromise and over deliver is my philosophy

Do you deliver any raw or unedited images?

No, I do not. The way I colour my images is all part of the magic! Every image that you receive will be edited with care and consistent to my style.

How Do We Book You?

I am so happy that you’re considering me to capture your special day! After looking through everything in my portfolio and website, send me an inquiry and tell me everything about yourselves - Your story, how you met, your favourite memory. Then I’ll send you my full price list and set a date for coffee or a facetime call so we can get to know each other. I require a 30% non-refundable deposit and both signatures to reserve your date and the remainder is due 10 days prior to the event.
