WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I shoot with a pair of Nikon d700s and corresponding Nikor lenses – mainly a 35mm fixed and an 85mm fixed. Occasionally I’ll use a 50mm or a 45mm tilt shift. For my film, I shoot with a myriad of cameras — Contax 645, Canon AE-1, Nikon f100, and am always adding new ones to the collection.
HOW DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
Lightroom, VSCO and Photoshop. I’ve created custom presets that are based off of VSCO preset packages.
DO YOU TRAVEL, AND DOES IT COST TO HAVE YOU TRAVEL?
I love to travel! I have an up-to-date passport and am willing to go just about anywhere for a wedding or photography project. If travel is local (within 50 miles of Seattle) I do not require overnight accommodations, however, please inquire about specific costs regarding travel outside of 50 miles or out of state. Usually, all travel is covered by the my clients, including but not limited to, airline tickets, hotels, car rentals, ferry tickets, etc.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes, all of my gear as well as my business (liability) is insured and I carry back-ups of each of my camera bodies & gear.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Email me or fill out my contact sheet on my portfolio site and we’ll get a meeting set up to talk about your shoot, what my process is like, and any unique details so I can start thinking about timelines and other needs. For weddings, in order to reserve your wedding date, a 40% deposit is required, which is non-refundable. I also require my clients to sign a contract outlining copyrights, responsibilities, and payments.
DO YOU WORK WITH SECOND SHOOTERS? CAN I SHOOT WITH YOU?
I vet my second shooters based on experience, breath of work and it’s similarity to my own, as well as camera set-up/system. I have my list of go-to photographers that I work with often, but am always open to shooting with new individuals.
DO YOU TEACH OR OFFER MENTOR SESSIONS?
I do indeed. I love to teach and find great joy in explaining things & inspiring others. For a full list of my mentorship offerings, shoot me an email or fill out my contact form.
WHAT IF WE HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?
No problem. I’m always here to help so feel free to email me anytime. I also have a pdf, welcome booklet, & questionnaire I send to all of my clients & couples to help you understand what working with me looks like, which is very collaborative process!
