Let's create memories that'll make your heart palpitate with joy! I love capturing the moment as much as pose `Vogue worth` shots you'll love to hang on your wall and look at everyday. 

We want to make you ugly cry.

And help you remember how your heart skipped a beat when you said `I do!`.

How far in advance do I need to book with you?

Most of my brides book 9 months to 1.5 years prior to their wedding. I only book a limited number of weddings per year so make sure you book your date as soon as you book your venue to assure your date is reserved. For portrait or promo sessions you may reserve your spot for any other available date.

 

How long have you been in business?

I shot my very first image in August 2007 and started my legal business in November 2009.

 

How many weddings have you shot?

8 years, full of weddings, totaling 239 (and still counting!) here I am!

 

How would you describe your photography style? How do you like to work?

Organic, artsy, timeless! Honestly it really depends on my couple – if they’re more the romantic and quiet type, the images will just flow and I will let it be as it is… If they’re more energetic and adventurous I will not miss the chance to create something `out of the box` and the images will just `Rock N Roll` ! But I do love trying new things in order to `wow!` everyone 🙂

 

What type of equipment do you use?

I am a Canon user, with two 5D Mark III bodies and a variety of lenses, flashes and other gear. I rock both natural light and flash – so just tell me where to point my camera! LOL 🙂

 

Our reception/ceremony will be super dark. Will that be a problem for you?

Nope! You can put me in a pitch black room where you’d have to be a bat to see your way – I will still be able to shoot 😉 And no – I don’t have super batwoman powers (but I have my secrets 😉 )

 

Are you the photographer who will shoot my wedding?

You meet me, you sign the contract with me and you have me for all your sessions.  I strive to get to know each couple/family I work with and provide a unique photography experience for them. Now that doesn’t happen unless I get to know them in person! So, YES 🙂

 

We love our pets! Can they join us at the session?

Are you even asking? YESS!! I love furkids (of all types) and you are more than welcome to bring them. Don’t forget to bring their treats and have a friend to handle them when they get bored (so they can go for a walk while we continue our session). But if your furkid is too stinkin’ cute – it might distract me. I can’t promise I will not French kiss them instead of doing my job 😛 (OK I will do my job – but only if you promise to give me 10-15 minutes of playtime with them!) . If you have a non-furry pet, or one that has more than four legs… Ummm ok – bring them in – I’m always an advocate for non-discrimination but please just make sure they keep a safe distance from me. I’m a wuss with those kind of pets and you do not want your photographer to faint and not be able to perform hehehehe (that was a sarcastic laugh :P) I mean, I don’t know what’s wrong with me – it’s just my phobia 🙁

 

Are you photographing other events on the same day as mine?

Once you book your date for your wedding, regardless of how many hours of service you contract me for – because I want to fully focus on your wedding, the whole day is only reserved for you. So in case you need more coverage than you thought I will be able to stay longer and you won’t have to worry about it! The same might not apply with portrait/promo sessions – depending on how many hours of photography service you need, I might book other events/sessions for the day.

How many photos will we receive?

Both for weddings and portrait sessions I promise 50 images per hour – but usually it’s above that. I can blast you with thousands of images – but I prefer to give you unique images (maybe a few similar ones for you to pick your favorite) instead of giving you 15392 of the same pose 😉 It’s quality (and the emotions it brings you!) that matter mostly – not the quantity!

 

Is it okay if other people take photos while you’re taking photos?

It states in my contract that I will be the only professional photographer for the event, but that does not include non-professional guests. Your guests may take pictures, of course, but keep in mind sometimes this can ruin the pictures you actually paid (a lot!) for. At least for the ceremony it’s great if you ask your guests to put away their phones/tablets and just enjoy the moment with you. After all I (and my team) am hired to document your day. That’s the meaning of my life! 😛 For portrait/promo sessions I have no cameras requirement – unless the person who’s not in the picture with you wants to shoot me for behind the scenes – that’s totally fine! 😛

 

Do you include engagement photos in your collections?

Yes! All my wedding collections include a complimentary engagement session so you are not only comfortable with me when we’re out for a coffee date – but also are comfortable in front of my camera 😉

 

What type of albums and designs do you offer?

All my albums samples can be viewed during our meeting session. While I offer three different types of albums, the design will be custom made for you, suiting your wedding’s color/theme. I make sure my couples get to see the design before anything goes thru the printing process – assuring they not only like but love their album.

 

How long after the wedding/session will I get the photos?

Both your online gallery and USB will be delivered 6-8 weeks after your wedding. For portrait sessions depending on the number of people and the amount of time contracted it may vary from 2 to 4 weeks.

 

How can we secure our date? Do you offer a payment plan?

A non-refundable retainer of 50% of the total is due to your booking date, while the rest is 30 days prior to your wedding. Portrait sessions are paid up front during the booking – yet if for any reason you have to reschedule let us know at least 5 business days in advance. While any amount paid is non-refundable, for rescheduling less than 5 business days a late fee of $50 will be applied.

 

All photography services, including wedding collections, products, and a la carte items are subject to 8.25% Texas Sales Tax. Prices may change at any time without notice.
