Where are you located?
I'm located in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, and predominantly work in 30A, Destin, and Panama City Beach.
Are you available for travel?
How would you describe your style?
Creative and photojournalistic.. I like to share a story, capture genuine real moments, and catch emotion. I have a love affair with color. Nature is the inspiration behind most of my work.
How does a lifestyle shoot work?
We meet at a predetermined location, and shoot for typically 75-90 minutes. The aim of these shoots is to be candid, not overly posed, and have fun! I will offer suggestions, help you not feel awkward, and guide you. You don't all have to be "on" the whole time. It's a great approach for babies and kids because we get to see their big personalities shine through. These shoots will leave you with a gallery that tells a unique story. You can expect roughly 50-75 photos on average to choose from. This is great for both families, mommy + me, and couples. You can see an example of a family lifestyle shoot here.
Do you shoot portraits?
Why yes, I do! I am available for senior portraits, as well as anytime you want to document a special time, like your son's second birthday (whatever it may be). Portraits are in a lifestyle format. This means a balance between your more traditional portrait style and organic naturally posed moments.
What is your approach to shooting weddings?
Weddings are shot in a story format, with a beautiful album in mind. I like to imagine you and future generations snuggling on the couch flipping through your own fairy tale. I like things to feel real, capture all of the emotions, small details, and little in-between moments. I may offer suggestions, but I don't overly stage anything.
Can I meet you before my wedding?
Yes, lets get coffee and talk about your big day.
How do you edit your photos, and what should I know?
All photos that you see are edited using Lightroom and/or Photoshop. I like to bring out what's there, and give the photos "my look." I do not believe in over editing. I like to bring out the best, and while I will help you look your absolute best, you will look like you! You should notice the photo, not the editing.
How much will it cost me?
Prices start at $350 for lifestyle shoots and $1500 for weddings.
