1. When did you start pursuing photography?
-I’ve grown up always having a camera in my hand (they were only point and shoot cameras, but cameras nonetheless!). My family owns a church so at about age 8, I started attending the annual Valentine’s Day banquet and would go around to all of the tables and ask each couple if they’d like their picture taken. Of course I had ZERO idea what I was doing, but they took a chance and purchased my $1 Walgreens print offer in order to document the night with their date. My entrepreneurial spirit was born at this age. I started shooting as a career two and a half years ago whenever I decided that I wanted to pursue this hobby full time.
2. What areas of photography do you focus in?
-My main focus is weddings and engagement sessions, however, I also shoot portrait sessions (families and seniors).
3. What gear do you shoot with?
-I shoot with a full-frame Canon body and a variety of Canon and Sigma lenses, however, my favorite lens is my Canon 50 mm 1.2 L!
4. What do I have to do to book a session with you?
-In order to book a session, I ask that you first submit a Contact form through the Contact tab on my site’s menu bar. From here, I can send you all of the necessary information you’ll need! If you decide to move forward, a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer fee is due in order to be considered “booked.”
5. How far in advance should I book my session?
-I currently book portrait sessions about a month to two months in advance. I book wedding days anywhere from 6 months to a year and a half in advance. I am currently booking wedding dates through May 2018.
6. Will you help us with posing and clothing ideas?
-Most definitely! I try to take a more natural approach to posing and only ever do about 4 core poses. From these base poses, I’m able to get natural and raw emotions and action. I feel that this style of posing helps portray my clients in their best and true state. I’ll also send a detailed clothing style guide prior to the session in order to help ease the process of outfit selection!
