Everyone who knows me or has seen my fridge knows that I am a sucker for sentimental things and, above all else, snail mail! Dating back to 1997 with a birthday card from my great grandmother, I began keeping every hand written note I've ever been given. Today, I have letters from hundreds of people from all around the world, gestures of appreciation from colleagues at work, thank-you cards from patients I've served at the hospital, and save the dates, invitations, & holiday cards from previous photography clients. In a world where technology has made it so easy to connect with anyone at any time, there is something incredibly special about seeing written words and knowing that they came from the heart.

After the busiest season of my photography career, I have decided to adjust my inquiry system to revolve around a more personal experience! Some would argue, business is doing well - why fix something that isn't broken? However, as my business has grown, I have begun to notice myself interested in creating something deeper than a typical client/customer transactional relationship. This goes beyond me simply being available on your date and showing up where I'm supposed to be, when I'm supposed to be there!
I am deliberate and passionate in every step I take as your photographer and, above all else, value the connections that are born in the intimacy of the work that we do together. I hope the change I am suggesting will attract more clients who recognize my values and feel similarly about my mission when it comes to being your photographer - to create memories for your photographs to revolve around, not photographs for your memories to revolve around.
Please, send mail! Send me something hand-written or crafted by you personally. Write a letter, create a scrapbook page, send a postcard of where you're from or where you're planning to get married. You can mail me a polaroid photo of your pet(s), a receipt from your last date-night together, a concert ticket stub or a coaster from the bar you went to last night... Get creative, share lots of details or simply write down the bare necessities for me to get back in touch with you. All I ask is that you are open minded in sharing in a unique and meaningful experience with me, just as I am with each of you!
How it Works
be hand-written or personally crafted
be sent on behalf of yourself - not as a gift or gesture for someone else
be able to fit in a standard USPS 12x8 envelope (or smaller, please!)
In addition to something personal or why you're interested in working together, include the following:
Other things to keep in mind:
I will not officially remove a date from my availability until an agreement has been signed & a deposit has been received!
Before you inquire, please have a basic understanding of potential financial investment:
Standard wedding documentaries (6-12 hours of single-day coverage) range from $3,500-$6,300 depending on duration of coverage, return of images, desired number of photographers, engagement sessions & albums/prints *travel fees not included*
Domestic elopement documentaries range from $5,500-$6,500 (destination dependent) and include two 8-hour days of intimate coverage by me only, with no additional travel fees.
International elopement documentaries range from $5,500-$7,500 (destination dependent) and include up to three 8-hour days of intimate all-inclusive coverage by me only, with no additional travel fees.
Within 72 hours of receiving your personalized inquiry I will send an email providing a link to my personal calendar to set up a phone consultation (Woo!) or, I will notify you that I am unable to take on your request so that you can quickly return to your photography search. If the date you have requested is pending with another couple, I will provide you with the option to be added to a 48 hour waitlist while we wait for the pending couple to either accept or decline their booking.
