Marriage. Hell yeah.
Congratulations on your engagement and thank you so much for considering my studio for your special day! Wedding photography is a unique mix of art, skill, passion and experience. When those elements come together, great photographs will be the result. I have been shooting weddings since 2011 and have worked with several hundred couples from New York City to Santa Barbara- and everywhere in between. We have won Best of TheKnot.com for both our wedding and boudoir photography for the last 7 years in a row, won a WeddingWire Couples Choice Award in 2016, Best of Mentor for creative services in 2016 and 2017, and Best Wedding Photography in Northeast Ohio in 2014, 2015, and 2016.
As an established studio I have built a foundation of high expectations and the belief that excellent customer service, in addition to strong client relationships, are essential for an unforgettable experience. Combine that with stunning images displayed in sophisticated albums, and we consider it the perfect marriage of photography and design. To make it even better? My team is really fun. And you’re going to have an absolute blast at your wedding that results in swoon-worthy photography that you will absolutely gush over!
|| We celebrate diversity and welcome couples of all backgrounds, faiths, body types and orientations!
We love love, fun couples, and capturing the big moments, small moments, and in-between moments of your day. ||
|| Areas Served ||
We are a Northeast Ohio based photography team also available for worldwide destination weddings. Our local primary areas of coverage are across northeast Ohio, western Pennsylvania, Akron/Canton, and Columbus. Wanna go somewhere swanky? We're in- let's chat.
|| Style ||
My approach to wedding photography can be described as vibrant, modern art meets perfectly timed candid moments. I love to let moments unfold naturally and capture them as they are, in their most candid form. The best way to produce these results is simply by paying attention to my surroundings and moving with the beat of the event. I am always happy to offer photographic insight such as the best locations for lighting, timeline assistance on how to get the most out of your coverage, and style certain scenes such as the wedding details e.g. dress, bouquet, shoes, invitations, wedding rings. Even during the formal photos, I aim to make sessions fun and relaxed to produce photos that look natural and not overly posed. We’ve been incredibly fortunate to work with so many clients who share our vision and photographic voice.
|| Experience ||
Weddings are an immense production, and because they happen only once, we take great care in the way we handle photographing the event.
For all of my wedding collections, I stalk your venues well in advance to ensure we won't run into construction, other events, or any other potential issues on your big day. If you have a professional wedding planner or other creative team members, I will collaborate with them and help with timeline planning and review, questionnaire review, and family shot planning. My equipment includes professional grade Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR cameras, several Canon Sigma ART Lenses, Canon and Yungnuo Speedlights, Westcott Ice Lights, and plenty of backup options in case of any malfunction. Photographs are immediately backed up in real-time via dual memory card slots in the cameras we use and further backed up via external hard drives and online cloud backup after the event. We are also a fully licensed and insured business and can provide proof of Business General Liability Insurance for venues that require it.
|| Post Production ||
Your photographs are as important to us as they are to you, and as such, our post production includes immediate transferring of files, a secondary external backup of files, as well as a third online backup of files to cloud storage.
Our post production also includes narrowing down to the "best of" images showcased in your gallery, exposure corrections, color corrections, and color grading on the entire collection. High end skin retouching is included on select close-up photos. Black and white processing is included on select highlights. Turnaround for engagement sessions is roughly 2-3 weeks while turnaround for wedding collections is roughly 6-8 weeks (sooner when we are able to). Having this time allows us to provide un-rushed post-processing and editing to give you seamless, archival quality results.
|| Booking ||
I love to sit down and meet with couples in person prior to booking so we can get to know each other and make sure that we are a good fit during such a special time in your lives. If it's a match, booking can be done through the online portal so you can check out your contract, invoice, and package inclusions at any time. Closer to your wedding, a pre-wedding questionnaire gets sent out for you to fill before we meet again 30 days out from your wedding. The questionnaire will outline your preferences for locations, times, who you would like featured in formal shots, and anything we can do to help structure a timeline so you are getting the most out of your coverage.
|| Investment ||
Every wedding, large or small, near or far, receives the exact same epic service and rockstar experience that you'll read about in our reviews in places such as TheKnot.com, WeddingWire.com, Facebook, and Google. The investment in your photography can vary depending on location, hours of coverage, amount of photographers, and printed products/package inclusions. Elopements and micro-weddings start at $1499 and up (only available for Friday and Sunday packages) while full length packages start at $2899 and up. While we do offer set package options, more often than not we tailor your inclusions to ensure you are receiving exactly what you want for your big day in a way that works for you.
