am a destination wedding photographer based in Boston, Massachusetts with a severe case of wanderlust. I strive to create beautiful images that are classic, natural and tell the story of each day.
I believe that choosing a wedding photographer is about more than just hiring someone with a camera to document your day. Your wedding photographer should be someone who makes you feel comfortable, someone who eases the craziness of a wedding day, and maybe someone...
Unless you’re a model, being photographed probably feels a little awkward. I do this for a living and still always feel a little out of place when I have my photo taken every year. I am a big fan of engagement sessions for a few reasons. First, they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how I pose. Timelines can be pretty tight on weddings days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why I’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.
Second, you can showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is signficant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, I’ve taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.
After photographing almost a hundred weddings over the past few years, I’ve found that I’m not the perfect fit for every couple. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. I want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories, and how you got engaged. We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with me and figure out if I’m the best fit for you.
If we are a great fit, the next step is to reserve your date with a signed contract and a 33% deposit. From there, we’ll begin planning your engagement session.
There might be a few months in between your session and your wedding, but I’m always around to answer questions you have throughout the planning process (I know it’s a lot to think about!). About two months before the big day, I’ll check in again with a pre-wedding questionnaire to help me finalize the timeline, create the family formal shot list and to make sure I’m fully prepared to photograph your wedding.
After the wedding, I’ll edit your images and upload them in an online shareable gallery. You can expect to receive your images between 8 and 12 weeks after your wedding.
