Please visit my contact page & send me a message. Please be as detailed as possible. You will receive an automated confirmation email.
I will follow up within 24-48hrs with a link to schedule an initial consultation. In the mean time, please feel free to explore my FAQs below and browse through my site.
During our call, we will discuss your wedding day details. I will ask you a lot of questions, and you have the opportunity to ask me questions too. Our discussion usually consists of what style of photography you are looking for, venue, the number of guests you are expecting, how many in your wedding party, etc.
After our call, I will create a custom proposal based on the details you provided. Your proposal includes several pricing options for your day, and samples of my work. You can expect this within 24-48 hrs after our call. If you would like to further customize your wedding proposal, just let me know.
I will hold your date for 7 calendar days. If everything looks good and the custom proposal fits your needs, we can move forward and I will be your official wedding day photographer. Your date is 100% secured when you have signed your contract, and have paid your date reservation fee.

Wedding Photography FAQs
We want to book...what next?
After you pay the date reservation fee and contract signing, you are all set. Our next step is to plan your engagement session. I will suggest locations and help you style wardrobe options. I love a local destination session and it is a great way to make your engagement photos special and unique. It is also a great way to connect with you and your story. You can see how I work, and I can help you become comfortable in front of the camera.
Are you involved in our wedding planning process?
I will work close with you or your planner and vendor team to create a photography timeline that suits your big beautiful day. I remain readily available to you throughout the planning process if you need me. Some clients prefer no interaction with me until the wedding day. I get it, however it is not ideal, in order to capture photos with deep emotion, and connection, it helps a great deal when I have established a connection with you and your vision for your day.
When will my photos be ready?
I know how exciting it is to get a glimpse of those photos, which is why I love to provide highlights within 3-4 days post session. All photos are delivered via an online gallery with high resolution images for proofing. Your completed gallery will be delivered within 8-10 weeks. Turnaround time may differ by up to 2 weeks during peak seasons (graduation, wedding, holidays, etc.)
How many photos will we receive?
For weddings, you can expect to receive about 40-60 images per hour of coverage wedding. I always choose quality rather than quantity. I will choose the best and most significant photos to curate your gallery and tell your story.
How do you edit your photographs?
I do edit my photographs. My style is not "light & airy" nor "dark and moody". I would describe my style as natural, timeless, and my photographs "look how the day felt". My intention is to capture your emotion, sentiment, and passion without altering or distorting your essence, or the essence of our surroundings on the day of your engagement session or wedding. I do enhance light, shadow, color, and will occasionally “Photoshop” the distracting stand of hair etc. I do not alter physical features but do correct blemishes and whiten teeth if needed.
Do you take indoor photographs?
For weddings I shoot in and outdoor, and use flash as well as other artificial lighting.
What if we need to reschedule our wedding date?
Life happens, and I completely understand. If you have to reschedule your wedding date, I would be happy to do so based on availability. If you reschedule in the same calendar year there will be no charge. There will be an additional 15 % charge per calendar year added.
Do you require a deposit and a contract?
Wedding investments are divided into 3 installments. The first installment is the date reservation fee, the second installment is due is 6 months before the wedding, and the last installment is due 1 month before your wedding. A contract is also required, and a model release is requested.
* If booking Wedding less than 3 months away, 50% date reservation fee due at booking, and remainder due 30 days prior to Wedding date.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I shoot with a Canon R6 for digital images and I use prime and zoom lenses. For film photography,I shoot with a Pentax 645n & a Canon 1V. I always have a backup. I will use a flash and artificial light when needed for night shots and indoor weddings.
Do you charge sales tax?
By law, I am required to charge sales tax on tangible items.
California State. 6%
Monterey County Local Tax SI 1%.
Monterey County District Tax 0.5%
**Full pricing information is sent after our initial consultation.
