Eloping is so much more than just running away and getting hitched at a courthouse. I like to think of them as investing money into what you truly care about and leaving behind all the nitty gritty details. Whether that’s hiking a mountain at sunrise, saying your vows with the ocean waves crashing behind you, or flying to Greece and saying ‘I do’ on a little cliff amongst the Mediterranean. It’s YOUR day and YOUR memories.
*For elopements with up to 15 guests

Let’s go on an adventure, capturing all the love and giggles and awkward dance moves you have to offer! I like to call these adventure sessions as it’s so much more than your traditional photoshoot. I choose places and activities that best fit my couples personalities and allows me to capture them in their most natural element. Goodbye to the awkward and cringeworthy poses and hello to crazy piggy back rides, running fully clothed into the ocean, hiking all the mountains, or making pancakes in the comfort of your home in your PJ’s. Let’s create some authentic magic

How many images do you deliver?
Every wedding is different and I never like to cap it at a certain number. I will never withhold images due to it being over the agreed upon amount and instead just go off of how many quality images we got that day. The images I take are your memories and I always respect that and will always provide you with plenty. With that being said, most 8 hour weddings produce around 400-600 edited images.
How long have you been a photographer?
I’ve been shooting portraits for the past 7 years and have been doing weddings for the last year and a half.
What’s the payment process like?
For all weddings I require a 30% nonrefundable deposit which is due at the time of booking and the remaining amount is due at least 2 weeks before the wedding date. I also offer payment plans to help ease the financial burden. I offer 2, 3, and 4-installment plans and am always happy to work with you so if you have any questions on this feel free to reach out to me.
Where are you based and do you travel for weddings/shoots?
I’m currently based out of St. Petersburg, Florida but travel all over! Next year I’m converting a van into a home so by 2020 I’ll be 100% mobile, spending summers out west and winters back in Florida:)
Is travel separate?
Yes, travel is separate. I require flight, transportation, and housing to be covered for any out of state location and then I cover the rest. The way this works is I will book the travel and Airbnb/hotel and send you an invoice that’s to be paid within a week of the booking. Don’t worry, I always send over the travel itinerary and cost breakdown for your confirmation before booking to avoid any surprise expenses. I’m also more than down to share housing accommodations, Ubers, rental cars, etc. to cut down on costs for you!
What should I wear to a shoot?
I have a whole guide on this I send once you book!
What if I have to cancel/reschedule?
The deposit is legally non-refundable so if you find you have to cancel or move the date you will need to pay a new deposit for the new date you book.
What if you can’t make it to the wedding?
The only case this would happen is something out of my control such as sever illness, an unforeseen accident, or death. Otherwise trust that I will be there rain or shine. I know this is one of the most important days for you and I treat it as such.
What is your turnaround time?
I have a pretty quick turnaround time. Typically for couples sessions, images are delivered within 2 weeks. For weddings it usually takes around 5 weeks. If it’s busy season it may take a bit longer but I always try my best to get them delivered as fast as possible while still taking the time to give each of my clients 100%. I know what it’s like to have to wait for images and I know it totally sucks so I try to work fast!
Do you give RAW unedited images?
Nope. My editing style is so entangled within my brand that I only deliver the edited versions. Think of it as a painter giving you a half finished canvas… she/he would say hell no because it isn’t done… same with photographers. With that being said, I am always more than happy to go back and fix/adjust any images that you wish.
What happens if the weather is bad?
I’m a strong believer that “bad weather” is way more fun and delivers beautiful and unique photos. Some of my favorite shots were done in the rain and some of the most magical sunsets I’ve shot in happened after a total monsoon. If it is so bad that it affects transportation, makes for a shitty time, would ruin my gear, or is just unsafe we can of course work to find a date to reschedule. But don’t let a little rain or snow scare you:)
Do you use second shooters?
I primarily always shoot solo unless the bride/groom request otherwise. If it’s an extra large wedding and I don’t feel comfortable getting all the shots that you want then I will hire a second shooter that has a similar style and experience as I do to help make sure we capture every moment. Second shooter prices vary depending on how many hours you want but typically is around $400 extra. I will also always confirm that who I choose is someone you are comfortable with before booking them.
Do you only photograph weddings and couples?
Not necessarily. Although weddings and couples are what I love most to shoot, I often work with fashion brands and other small businesses and absolutely love that side of photography as well. In regards to family pictures, I really only take on family shoots for past couples I’ve worked with and very seldom. However, if you’re in need of a family photographer I know of tons and am more than happy to connect you with someone!
