Can we meet you before booking?
Do I have to pay a deposit?
Yes, I require a non-refundable 50% deposit via Interac e-Transfer to secure your wedding date, along with a signed copy of our contract. The full amount is payable 4 weeks before your wedding. Unfortunately, I can not accept the credit card.
Of course! I would love to invite you to my studio in the NW of Calgary and get to know you better before the big day. If you happen to live too far away or our schedules just aren’t syncing, I am more than happy to meet you over a good cup of coffee, anywhere in Calgary, Skype, or Facetime.
How is it like to work with you?
What if we are awkward in front of the camera?
During the planning process, I like to help as much as possible. I can help you plan for photos, timeline, light, etc. Whether you want my opinion on scheduling or what shoes to get, I’m here to help!
On your wedding day, I won’t do posey portraits shots unless you want me to. I want to capture how you feel, the mood, and the unscripted moments.
I will give you direction, while photographing what happens naturally as you interact with each other. It’s less about the posing and more about the direction and the action cues I give you. I’ll ask questions, get you talking, and bring out those natural responses!
For the rest of the day, I keep it mostly documentary, capturing the natural moments as they happen. I won’t step in and change the naturally occurring emotion.
And I do shoot the more “formal” family portraits and bridal party shots, I just don’t spend a ton of time of the posey stuff.
That's totally ok. Most of my couples tell me they're awkward and don't know how to pose in front of the camera. Don't worry I promise you, My job is to make you feel comfortable, break the awkwardness and your real selves will come out. You don't need to be models, you just need to be honest, open and focus on your feelings for each other and you'll do just fine.
