I am currently located in Calgary, Alberta and shooting primarily around the rocky mountains of Canada. It’s also no secret that I love to travel and take bookings worldwide.
Y.E.S. I LOVEEEE to travel! Wherever your adventure takes you, I'm there! So far I have been to 5/7 continents, and it's my goal to make it to all 7. You can also inquire about special destination discounts.
For a one hour adventure session there will be a minimum of 50 edited images included. For weddings there are approximately 60-100 per hour of coverage. You can trust me to get you all the best photos with no repeats!
I require a 40% non-refundable retainer when you book in order to secure your date. And the rest is due 2 weeks before your wedding day or 2 days before your session. Most people choose to pay through e-transfer, but PayPal, cash, or cheque also work.
I still shoot if it’s raining or snowing and rarely reschedule. I actually love having crazy weather I think it adds a fun element to the photoshoot. However, if the weather is CRAZY and we are unable to shoot, or you don't feel comfortable then we can talk about rescheduling.
YOU ARE STUNNING just the way you are!!! I believe there is no need to photoshop you. I want to capture you for who you really are which includes all the big belly laughs that sometimes include a double chin. I WILL edit out your pimples, bruises or stains, anything that is not permanent, but I don’t ever photoshop people to change their appearance.
I sure do! Well, not every single photo that I take because then there would be thousands! I narrow it down to the best photos, edit all of those and send them over to you.
I do try to include some black and white photos in every gallery. How many black and white photos you get depends highly on the circumstances such as location and lighting. If you have a preference on colour vs. black and white, let me know and I'd love to cater to your needs.
I deliver all of your photos on an online gallery which you are able to order prints through yourself. This way you have complete control over which prints you get and it’s super easy to order. But you are also able to order your photos from any print shop you like.
Unfortunately I don't provide albums at this time. But you are more than welcome to create your own wedding album and I would love to give you some recommendations on where to get it printed.
I do not give out raw image files. Half the work that you hire me for is the editing and I work hard to edit each and every image for you which is part of the creative process. I mean you wouldn’t go to a famous restaurant and ask for an uncooked chicken would you?
If I already have your date booked and you’ve paid your retainer, there is no refund for cancellation. If you are changing your wedding date or would like to reschedule your session then you are able to use 50% of your retainer to cover your new retainer fee but you will be required to pay the other 50%. The reason I am unable to refund you is not because I’m trying to steal your money, but it’s because I set aside a certain amount of dates to take bookings each year, and I have likely had to turn down other clients from your date and there is no guarantee that I will receive a new booking for that date.
First off, I’m going to do EVERYTHING I can to be there, serving YOU is my number 1 priority, always. If something were to ever come up, I would talk to you ASAP, I always want to be 100% open and honest with you. I would give you 2 options if I was unable to attend (again, it would have to be something out of my control), I could do everything in my power to find a replacement shooter for the day who then gives me the photos afterwards so you still get my editing style, or else you would have the option of receiving a full refund and rebooking with a photographer of your choosing (I would still be more than happy to give you recommendations). Also keep in mind that this is a good reason to have a second shooter booked, they can serve as a good backup in case I’m dying in the hospital or something.
I totally understand if you are unsure if we’d be a good fit or not. It’s hard picking out the right person who will be with you for your entire wedding day taking pictures. You want someone you trust and get along with. I'd love to meet up with you over coffee or ice cream or whatever it is you love just to get to know you and so you can get to know me. If you are still unsure, you can book your engagement session with me, and take it off the total price of your wedding package if you later decide to book me for your wedding.
