"GIVE THEM WHAT THEY NEVER NEW THEY WANTED"

-DIANA VREELAND

Humans fascinate me. Furthermore, humans interacting with other humans fascinate me. Our relationships with one another are a deep and vital component to the human experience, and I believe those relationships should be of the utmost importance, both to photograph, and to continually celebrate. I strive to capture people as organically as possible, all of the perks and quirks that make us all so unique.

I believe photos are not just meant to be looked at; they’re moments to be experienced, and re-experienced for years to come. 50 years from now I want your photos to flood you with the same emotion that they did when you first saw them. I believe the best kind of photos, that actually make you feel something, are the moments that I had nothing to do with; I just happened to be fully present and observant.

I like to tell my clients that I’ll be fully present when you need me, but un-intrusive when you don’t. I know how weird it can feel being in front of a camera, so I aim to make things as laid back as possible so you can come away with photos that feel like you, and not some preconceived pose you saw on Pinterest that one time.


With 8 years’ worth of experience and well over 100 weddings photographed, the role as photographer is one I do not take lightly; it’s an honor to be welcomed in to your love story, and I see it as my mission to not only photograph, but also uplift and help celebrate what you hold dear.

After we’ve chatted and have gotten an idea of which customized package would be best for you, I’ll send over a Proposal of everything you’re requesting.

Your full gallery will be finished and available between 4 and 5 weeks of your wedding day; from there you can order prints, design an album, and more!

To receive my detailed pricing guide, send me an email and we’ll get the ball rolling.

FAQ'S

 

DO YOU TRAVEL?

Absolutely! I’m down to go wherever you need me. Travel expenses waived within 1.5 hours of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Travel costs are customized on a client-by-client basis, and are based on distance and method of transportation.

HOW DO WE BOOK?

To reserve your date I require a signed contract and 30% non-refundable retainer. Unfortunately I cannot hold any dates until both of these are received. The remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding day.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

Absolutely yes! I encourage all my clients to view a few sample galleries from past clients to see how a wedding I photograph looks like from start to finish. Instagram and website portfolios tend to be highlight reels, and your wedding is so much more than that.

DO WE NEED A SECOND SHOOTER?

That decision is totally up to you. I recommend adding on a second shooter if you’re having a larger wedding (over 300 people), or if you simply think you’ll breathe easier knowing there are two photographers present. I’m well experienced in shooting weddings solo, but will gladly add on an assistant photographer at your request. 

HOW MANY IMAGES CAN WE EXPECT?

The total number of photos received depends on time booked. The most popular wedding package booked is 8 hours, in which I deliver between 600 to 900 photos. In each engagement session gallery I deliver around 150 photos. The main goal is to make sure your day is documented thoroughly, so I’m pretty liberal with quantity of photos delivered!

HOW DO YOU DELIVER OUR PHOTOS?

I deliver your high-res photos by way of your own personal online viewing gallery. The gallery can be shared with family and loved ones with the click of a button; you can also download your photos straight to any device, as well as order prints directly from the professional photo lab that is partnered with the gallery (highly recommended!)

CAN WE SEE A FULL GALLERY?

Absolutely yes! I encourage all my clients to view a few sample galleries from past clients to see how a wedding I photograph looks like from start to finish. Instagram and website portfolios tend to be highlight reels, and your wedding is so much more than that.
