I believe in memories and moments and all the tiny unforgettable things that happen in between.
Most common questions, you’d like to know about the photography process
What is your wedding photography style?
I would describe my style as natural, relaxed and timeless. I like to include a good mix of natural reportage photography, group shots and detail but love spending time with you creating beautiful portrait images you will treasure.
I would best describe my style as “Easy Breezy Beautiful”! Seriously though, my images reflect my love of clean composition, beautiful light, and helping you to look naturally gorgeous! I’ll be there to capture everything and yet I hope you barely remember seeing me. There is a delicate balance of knowing when to stay back and capture the action that unfolds or when to step in and take advantage of magical light and situation.
What time do you arrive and leave on our wedding day?
Basically I work to your schedule. On a typical wedding day I will arrive during the preparation of the bridal party to capture all the excitement before heading off to the ceremony location to await the brides arrival. Following the ceremony and group shots I will whisk you both away for a bride and groom portrait session. You get a few moments together and I will create some breath taking images of just the two of you as husband and wife. After that, it is relaxed shots of your guests, the meal, speeches, cutting of the cake, first dance and an after dark photo shoot.
Every wedding is unique in styling + timing, therefore the amount of coverage that you need may vary from someone else’s needs and that is why I offer three collections with different hourly coverage! Having said that, my preferred amount of coverage and my most frequently booked collection includes 8 hours. Eight hours gives me the perfect amount of time to thoroughly tell the story of your wedding day without feeling rushed, left with too much downtime, or missing important details/moments.
But if you think you need more or less time, let’s chat!
How will we receive our final images?
All weddings + lifestyle sessions are delivered through an online gallery for easy viewing, sharing with friends + family, and downloading. Lifestyle sessions take about 2 weeks to be processed and weddings can take up to 6 – 8 weeks. Curious to see a full engagement session or wedding gallery? Be sure to mention it in your initial inquiry and I’d be happy to share!
I don’t photograph well and am super awkward—can you help me?
Yes, of course! I understand that you might not have experience being photographed and I’m here to help. Through my easy shooting style and natural posing, I make sure that you look natural and lovely in your photos. Some people take a little longer to warm up, and in those cases I make sure that you feel comfortable and relaxed while we are shooting. I promise, I make it painless and fun, and it won’t be nearly as bad as you think!
What are your prices and packages?
I would love to discuss rates with you! Seeing as that no two weddings are alike and that I have different pricing for Algarve weddings and weddings that require travel, the best way to view at my pricing is by clicking on the CONTACT ME button and emailing me some details about your plans! If I am available on your date, I would be more than happy to email you my rates for your location, as well as chat about putting together a custom package that suits exactly what your wedding requires.
How do we book you for our wedding?
Once you have secured a date + venue we can move forward with booking! To reserve your day with me I require a signed contract and retainer. Shoot me a message (HERE) to get started!
Do you have a question for me? Great, I’m always happy to chat with brides about all little details of their wedding!
