Inquiry Update

Everyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for all things sentimental and, above all else, snail mail! Dating back to 1997 I began keeping every hand-written note gifted to me. Today, I have boxes of letters, cards, ticket stubs, notes, invitations, & more from hundreds of people and occasions...

 

After the busiest season of my photography career I have decided to add a new (old) form of communication to my inquiry-intakes to revolve around a more unique and sentimental experience! Some would argue, business is doing well - why change anything? However, as my business has grown, I have envisioned creating something more personal than the typical client/customer transactional relationship. This goes beyond me simply being available on your date and showing up where and when I'm supposed to be there.

No matter the occasion, I am deliberate 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 this change I am proposing will attract more clients who recognize my values and feel similarly about our mission - to create memories for your photographs to revolve around rather than photographs for your memories to revolve around. 

Please Send Mail!

Next step: 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, a shopping receipt, or a coaster from the restaurant you had dinner at last night... It doesn't need to be anything extravagant or time consuming - just be yourselves and feel free to include lots of details or simply write down the bare necessities (below) 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

Inquiries should:​

  • 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 information:

    • Name(s) 

    • Phone number

    • Email address

    • Wedding date & location (please include city/state if you wish to use a venue name)

Other things to keep in mind:

  • I will not officially consider a date as "booked" 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 $3,100-$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.

Then What?

My BO Box will be checked on a weekly basis! Within 72 hours of receiving your mail 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 sadly 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 both wait for the pending couple to either accept or decline their booking.
