Second Shooters?

Often times, couples like to book two photographers to capture their special day. This is a great way to get more images, images from multiple angles, and candid photos that I may not be able to get while I am focusing on the main portraits. So if candids are a big priority to you, I would definitely recommend two photographers! Don't worry, I have a list full of amazing second shooters and I promise to pick the one I feel best suits your unique day!

Do you collect a deposit prior to the wedding and what payment method is best?

Yes, I ask that a 50% retainer of the total amount be paid upon booking and the remaining balance won't be due until two weeks prior to your wedding date. E Transfer is the preferred method of payment!

 

How long will it take to receive my wedding photos, and how many photos can we expect to receive?

 

Wedding photos are delivered 5-10 weeks after the wedding date (or sooner if time allows). Most of my couples receive between 600-800 photos from a full (10 hr) wedding day.

All photos are delivered via online album for download. I will email you the link to the finished wedding album and from there you are able to view them all, pick your favourites, share and download!

If this is not your preferred method for receiving photos, we can discuss other methods, ex. a mailed USB.

 

Can I print my own photos?

 

Of course! Once you have downloaded the photos on to your own device, feel free to copy them on to a USB and print them as you wish!

 

What is your shooting style?

 

I believe in photographing what's real and natural. I prefer to use natural light whenever possible. I also try to stay away from photos that are too posed and not authentic. I'd much rather capture your partner's face seconds away from tears as you walk down the aisle, the movement of your hair against both of your faces as you go in for a kiss, and granny gettin' down to "Twist and Shout" at the reception! 

However, I completely understand that some photos are better posed, for example family portraits. If you're feeling awkward or camera shy, no worries, I like to talk and have fun with couples to get genuine smiles and cute little candid moments. 

How many years have you been doing this and what was your first gig?

I started my business the year after I graduated high school, in 2011. I spent my savings from working odd jobs to buy a new camera. My friends were getting married that September in the bride's hometown of Edinburgh, Scotland (I know, right?!) I was already invited as a guest, but when they asked if I would also take their wedding photos, I was beyond thrilled! 

After that, my little business started to slowly grow and expand, from people I knew to total strangers, some of who eventually became good friends. I look forward to meeting so many more people and capturing so many more beautiful moments!

What about family portrait sessions/smaller shoots?

I do offer smaller sessions for sure! Fall is always my busiest time for family sessions so I get a lot of inquiries about this.

I offer 30 min sessions for $180 + hst

&

1 hour sessions for $290 + hst

What do you want your couples to know going in to their wedding day?

My main concern for that day, is all about you. I want you to have the best day of your life! I want you to be stress and worry free. I want to capture images that you will be proud to show off. I will be beside you 90% of the day. I want you to smile and laugh and be yourself!

I will try to sit and take small breaks a few times in the evening (mostly at the reception) because a tired, hungry photographer is not a good photographer! ;) But please don't think this is me slacking off, 10 hours of work on your feet can be quite tiring, and though I love every moment, a sit down here and there is very much appreciated!

Please have a seat and plate for me (and my second shooter if applicable) at the dinner reception. The only thing worse than the photographers packing their own food and lugging it around is not having a place to eat at all. We like to eat too!

I may ask you to get adventurous and do some random things for a shot, but it's only because I can see the finished photo in my head and it is good! I like to be sneaky and I try not to miss a beat.

Oh, and I will most likely cry at your wedding, I'm only human.
