I take on a select handful of clients every year and do my best to make sure that we are an excellent match for each other. I am flexible and encourage people to reach out even if their budget or schedule requires personalized attention. Below is a general overview of the services I offer, but please reach out to receive a full pricing guide!
Wedding packages begin at $3,000 for intimate ceremonies (6 hours) and goes up from there for full day coverage!
Eloping: elopements are a ton of fun and I love the ability to capture intimate, small ceremonies! A package like this would include hourly coverage along with a digital online gallery of beautifully retouched images. Inquire within for rates.
Albums are not included in my packages but are available if desired. Please feel free to download my PRODUCT GUIDE here for these options! Second shooters are not included but also readily available if needed. Travel fees may be added to a job depending on location. A 40% deposit and signed contract is required upon booking for all wedding clients.
♥ Portrait Sessions♥
All sessions below or otherwise include 1-1.5 hours of photography + hi-res edited images in an online gallery for downloading and print options. Pricing begins at $450 and you can expect to receive about 50-75 retouched images.
♥ Engagements ♥
I love shooting engagement sessions because it's a great way to have intimate portraits (and for our personalities to mesh) together before the big day. My style with them is very relaxed, natural, and fun...think of it as walking around with your friend! I have a few great locations to suggest for outdoor shooting, but we can also hit up your neighborhood or any other place you personally love.
♥ Family, Children, & Maternity ♥
I would typically go to your home, or a nearby outdoor park for these! I love to shoot children in their natural environments as opposed to a studio; this allows the photographs to capture an intimate glimpse of your lives together. Whether you have a small newborn, toddler, or adult dynamic, my style is definitely more lifestyle oriented than posed.
♥ Editorial & Fashion ♥
I love collaborating with other creatives for fashion and editorial work! I'm available for testing, TFP, and magazine submission projects on a select basis. Let me know if you're a vendor or have a creative project in mind!
♥ FAQ ♥
Where are you located? I live in Brooklyn and love it here, but I am not restricted to my city! I enjoy traveling and discovering new places.
Do you carry backup equipment? Yes, I carry backup's at all times. Camera bodies, lenses, memory cards, and flashes. I'm a Canon shooter and use top of the line equipment.
What files do you provide? Can you give us the RAW images? All packages include high res digital files (JPG) so there are no additional costs after the images are delivered. A big part of what you're getting with your package is the intensive editing process, so no RAW images are provided.
What is your retouching and photographic style? While it's common that a photographers style can evolve over time, the images represented on my website I believe are true to my professional style and taste. It's very much photojournalistic but I also love adding editorial-style portraits into the mix. As far as retouching goes, I do about 90% color and 10% black & white. The color toning that I use is natural and soft. I'm inspired by the romantic look of film, but I also like to keep colors true to form and timeless: I'm not a fan of brightly saturated tones, but I also wouldn't make them too moody and dark. It's a balance!
How long will it take to get my final images? Anywhere from 4-8 weeks, less for portrait & engagement sessions (about 3.) I very carefully select and edit the images which is a huge process, so it's not something that should be rushed. I also like to give a few "sneak peak" photos within the first 1-2 weeks after a wedding just so you have something to view while waiting!
Do you have General Liability Insurance? Absolutely! Please let me know if your venue will need this certificate before the big day.
What costs are associated with travel? Travel costs are really simple for anywhere outside of the Tri-States. Just the basics: round trip flight, transportation arrangements, $40 daily per diem, and an airbnb/hotel room. International: 3 nights stay. Stateside: 2 nights.
Do you have a second shooter? Pricing starts for my services only, but second shooters are always available at $50/hr. For weddings over 130 guests, I'll require one. Over 100 guests, I would recommend it depending on your venue layout. Second shooters can potentially be available for less time if that's what works best for the day (i.e six hours of assistance instead of the full eight.)
Can we see a full gallery? Yes, just let me know and I can send you over a link or two! I also encourage you to check out the "featured wedding galleries" on my website or blog.
How can I pay you? I accept checks, venmo, cash, and credit cards. For all transactions you will receive an invoice/receipt for record keeping.
Do you offer albums or physical products? Yes! I offer custom books through KISS albums. I highly recommend ordering an album so that you can preserve your photos in print for years to come! My product guide is available for you to view/download. :)
How many images are delivered in our gallery? What can we expect? This is a great question! I can typically ensure a minimum amount of images that will be delivered from a portrait session or wedding (approx. 50-75 per hour), but I don't provide an exact number for delivery because every client and event is totally different. This can entail if the client wants more or less time, if it's a larger or smaller wedding, if you hire a second shooter or not. Regardless, my motto is "quality over quantity" and the images you receive are highlights of your individually unique selves!
