The Creative Process
We will be in contact throughout the planning process to refine the inspiration, creative vision and logistics for your wedding photography.
I prefer to work collaboratively with vendors to ensure the finest results in your imagery. This includes designing a wedding photography timeline tailored to your event to provide suitable timing and locations for photographs.
I'll tell the story of your wedding by documenting moments and emotions as they naturally unfold - as well as the preparations that were lovingly planned in advance. Throughout the day I will constantly be seeking beautiful light, elegant compositions, and complementary color tones to ensure every photograph is lovely and unique.
After your wedding you will receive a collection of heart-stirring images curated into exquisite heirlooms that will invite reverie and nostalgia for years to come.
Whether you are traveling to a far away place or keeping your celebration close to home, I will gladly journey to any destination to document your wedding. I find that travel keeps my style fresh and provides me with inspiration to infuse your wedding images with the distinct spirit and aesthetic of your chosen locale.
You can rest assured that as an experienced destination wedding photographer, I am fully prepared to handle the intricacies of travel and working in different countries. I am a tenacious planner and leave nothing to chance.
Regardless of your location, I will arrive at least one full day before any photography is scheduled to commence. I find it important to spend time familiarizing myself with the area and venue to determine optimal locations for photographs – taking into consideration light, scenery and overall aesthetic.
