WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I am based in Peterborough Ontario, but I live in Buckhorn just 35 minutes north of the city. I love to travel and I am available for weddings in Ontario, Canada and worldwide.
My passion is to document human interaction and connection, to take a snapshot of those raw, vulnerable, intimate and fleeting moments shared in our lives. I am also drawn to quiet moments and pretty dramatic lighting.
WHY DO YOU LOVE BEING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH DESTINATION WEDDINGS OR ELOPEMENTS?
I seriously love LOVE and what better occasion to witness and document all sorts of love the a wedding day. The way grandparents look at their grand daughter with admiration marring the love of her life, the way a wedding can rekindle love and affection among guests present, the way a mom cries when her son is putting on his suit. Weddings took on a whole new meaning for me when I had my children. I look at it as a day that I will get to take part in as a mother one day. I cry like a little baby listening to parent speeches and parent dances because one day that will be my little girl. Weddings are an emotional day and I strive to really capture that beautiful connection between everyone celebrating the love of the couple.
For sure I do!! Sometimes a big wedding day is not for everyone and sometimes you would rather run away with your closest loved ones or just with each other. An intimate and unique way to celebrate your beautiful relationship. Let’s go on an adventure together! If you are traveling for your wedding I would love to hear about it. I would be more then happy to provide you with a custom quote for your elopement or destination wedding! Head on over to my contact page so excited to hear from you!
WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE ME?
HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
Couples should choose me because I value their stories and getting to know them. I want to connect and built lasting relationships with all my couples that surpasses their wedding day. I want to be their 'forever' photographer, I want to get to know their friends and family members and I want to be present for all their big life moments even after they say 'I do'. It's the most rewarding thing when couples include me in their next steps, maternity, newborn and family photography. It excites me because then I get to keep reconnecting with them on all levels of life.
I alway love to meet my clients to get to know them better. I send you a 'Getting to Know You' questionnaire once we have set up a coffee date. Please fill it out and send it back to me. We would then chat over coffee (or beer!) about all your wedding day plans and what you hope to achieve with your wedding day photography. Then if you find that I am a great for for your big day I would go over my contract with you. Once signed we would set up an engagement session which will be significant for us to got to know each other better. About two months before your wedding day I will email you a 'Wedding Pre-Shoot Questionnaire' to be filled out. It is full of important questions regarding your wedding day. You will fill this out and send it back to me that way I know all the details you have planned for your big day. Then about 30 days before your wedding day we would have a second meeting to chat about your wedding day schedule and confirm your wedding day details. I am with your every step of the way!
HOW DOES THE PAYMENT PROCESS WORK?
Payment is divided into 3 payments. When you book with me, upon signing your contract, you are required to pay the non-refundable booking retainer. Then 30 days before your wedding day at our second meeting your second deposit is due. The final payment is due the day before or on your wedding day. Payment may be made in cash, cheque or e-transfer.
CAN YOU HOLD OUR DATE?
While I do not hold dates here is how you can book your wedding date. A retainer and signed contract are required and then your wedding date is secured. Wedding dates fill up quickly so get in touch to book your date.
IF WE ARE GETTING MARRIED OUTSIDE PETERBOROUGH ONTARIO ARE THERE TRAVEL COSTS?
Yes there is. If you are outside the Peterborough area travel costs are 0.54 cents per kilometre. As well, depending on how far away and the package chosen, accommodations may be needed.
IF WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION, CAN WE DEDUCT IT FROM OUT PACKAGE?
No. The engagement session is a complementary session added to my packages as a way to get to know and build a relationship with my couples.
HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
WHEN DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
You would receive your photos in high-resolution format uploaded to a private online gallery, as well as a customized USB drive with permission to print and share on social media.
You would receive your images 12 weeks from your wedding date.
