Everyone wants stunning photos...

Yet, what might not be as obvious is the immense value of a wonderful experience with your wedding photographer! That's precisely the commitment I make to you as your chosen vendor. Time and again, I aim for you to be as enthusiastic about the experience as you are about your photos! Why? Because achieving those authentic, true-to-you portraits hinges on your comfort with the photographer. Your feelings during the photo session greatly impact your reaction to seeing yourself in the final shots. I can confidently say that loving your images is entirely achievable when you're at ease during the session! Fostering relaxed, joyful, and authentic interactions is my top priority!

What it's like to work with me? I'm energetic and passionate about my work. I strive to photograph the things that are important to you. I'm guilty of getting emotionally invested in my clients; creating that relationship is one of my favourite parts of our experience together. I pride myself on capturing the precious moments that come and go in an instant.

Oh and my favourite part of a wedding day? Moments of genuine laughter from you, your families, and guests. These candid shots often become some of the most cherished for my couples.

The Wedding Process

I. Inquire & Consult

If you love my work & approach fill out my contact form HERE to get started! I can't wait to hear from you! From there I'll send you a link to book in a consult where we can meet and I can hear all about what you're planning.

II. Booking & Planning

To make it official you'll review a client agreement. Once it is signed, and the retained is paid do a little cheer because you just secured your wedding photographer! From there on I'm here to answer any questions you have leading up to your day. Closer to your wedding day we'll meet again to go over all the important details that you've put together.

III. Wedding Day & Delivery

As your photographer, I'll be more than just the person behind the camera; consider me an additional pair of eyes making sure every detail is spot-on, as well as keeping your timeline on track. This way, I won't miss a single moment of what you've planned for your day! Post-wedding, you will receive some sneak peeks from your gallery within 2 days and the whole gallery within 6 to 10 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should we book you?

Photographers can only shoot one wedding at a time. If you think we'd be a great fit, I recommend that you get in touch as soon as possible to secure your date. I limit the number of weddings I take on for a given year.

How many photos will we get back?

The number you receive varies and depends on how many hours you have me around for. I personally edit each and every one of your photos - there’s no limit on the amount of photos you’ll be getting as long as they adequately tell the story of your day.

What is your turn around time?

I strive to get my couples their wedding galleries within 6-10 weeks, but if you need anything back before then, just reach out and let me know.

Do we need to feed you?

Yes please! If your guests are eating during your reception, I prefer to eat at the same time that you are. I love being able to sit with your guests so that I can shoot and be right where the action is (as opposed to eating in the next room).

Can we customize any of your wedding packages?

Absolutely! I'm happy to create a package that perfectly suits your day. If you don't see what you're looking for in the listed wedding packages just send me a message and we can iron out the details.

What is your payment schedule?

I require a 25% retainer to reserve your wedding date. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to your wedding date. Monthly payment plans are available free of charge!

Do you charge a travel fee?

For locations outside the Ottawa/Gatineau area, a traveling fee may be required.
