What is your style? My photographic style is romantic and Natural. I love capturing candid, emotionally driven images. I find myself gravitating to images that are back lit by the sun and feel a bit moody, so as to pull you into the scene of the image.
Where are you located? I am based out of Calgary, Alberta servicing Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise, and Fernie. I also make it to Eastport Newfoundland area each summer as well. I absolutely love to travel and explore all over Canada and internationally as well. Please let me know if you are interested in my services in other areas, I may even offer a special discount if you plan to elope or have an intimate wedding in a city or Country I’ve never had the chance to visit.
Who is your client? My clients are everyday people who love having a great time especially at their session. They enjoy having an authentic experience with their loved one/ones and embrace who they are flaws and all.
How far in advance should I book my shoot? As soon as you know your date. But I would recommend booking at least 4-5 weeks out for portrait sessions, and 1-2 years for weddings. I would suggest as soon as you figure out your venue book your photographer. This doesn’t mean I can’t squeeze you in last minute though…sometimes I do have last minute cancellations. If you are interested in booking, contact me here!
Do you have a studio? Only for Boudoir sessions, I am a lifestyle photographer and prefer to work on-location in a setting that is more reminiscent of who you are. Please note, any travel outside of a 60km radius of Calgary is subject to travel fees.
How long does it take to get images and products? Images will be available in a private gallery within 2 weeks for lifestyle & boudoir sessions and within 10 weeks for weddings. Print products and digital files will be delivered within 2 weeks of your ordering session. Albums within 4 weeks of design approval.
Do you design albums? Yes I do. They come in various sizes and fabrics all catered to what you are looking for.
What should we wear for a family or couples session? I recommend simple clothing as it is great for timeless portraits and so the photos don’t become too busy. Wearing coordinated, but not necessarily matching, outfits are great to create a unified look. Try to stay away from bright white shirts (off-white is better!), and wearing the exact same outfits. Fun accessories (jewelry, hats, scarves, etc.) are always a plus too! I am happy to guide you with suggestions of what will photograph well and that you feel comfortable in. I also have a Pinterest page you can get inspiration from for Family sessions and one for Engagement Sessions.
Do you edit every photograph? Yes each and every image you receive is hand edited. Not in bulk but one at a time.
Can you change these images to color, b&w, touch up a blemish, etc. after you have already edited the images? I make sure to spend time after your photo shoot editing your images for exposure, color correction and small blemishes to make them “picture perfect”! If you want to make some additional changes I am more than happy to do so but please know extra edits will incur a minimal fee.
What kind of equipment do you use? I am a Nikon Girl. I own two full frame Nikon Cameras. A D700 and a D800 as well as all top of the line lenses to go with those fancy cameras.
What happens if I need to reschedule? I understand life can be unpredictable sometimes, and I’m more than happy to reschedule if need be but must be rescheduled within 6 months of original date. Wedding retainers are non refundable as once I book your wedding date I turn down all other work for that day.
