FAQ

 

Q: Do you travel?

I do! My packages all allow for a certain amount of travel time outside of Charlotte. Any more than what your package states, and I may need to charge extra to cover travel expenses, such as gas, food and lodging. 

Q: Can you take photos in a specific style or photoshop specific elements in or out of the photos?

A: I only know how to shoot in my style, which you can get a pretty good feel for in my portfolio! I'm not willing to try and emulate the style of another photographer, nor do I offer extreme post-processing in terms of photoshop. My editing consists entirely of lighting, color and overall style, which you can also get an idea of from my portfolio.

Q: Do you have a second shooter?

A: I sure can! A second shooter will be a little extra, depending on how long you'd like them there for. For weddings I usually recommend having a second shooter for at least the ceremony, especially for weddings in smaller spaces or with more than 75 guests. 

Q: Do you do elopements?

A: I love elopements. I offer special rates on them as well, so please get in touch to chat!

Q: Do you have a studio?

A: I don't have an indoor space for photos, no. There is plenty of merit in studio photography, and I certainly don't discount the medium, but it's not personally my thing. My style of photography revolves around a journalistic and candid representation of you, not a posed one. I'm happy to come to your home, a favorite spot of yours, or I can recommend some areas that I know make for beautiful photo settings! But if you're looking for a posed studio session, I might not be the photographer for you. I definitely recommend looking through my gallery to get a feel for my style and decide if we'll be a good fit!

About

 

I am a freelance photographer based out of Charlotte, NC. I got my start doing small engagement and elopement photos, largely for students at my university. While my business has grown since then, the intimate and honest nature of those photos has remained the cornerstone of how I approach any style of photography, from weddings to lifestyle and even graduation shoots. Simply put, I love photography, and I love people. My goal is to capture the beautiful moments of human nature.

I shoot with a Canon Mark III and a small arsenal of lenses. While I'm completely happy with a shot list for your day, in the meantime I'll be intent on getting those happy candid moments in between!

It's an absolute honor to be considered for your moments, whether that's an engagement, a proposal, a window into your daily life, a marriage, or a celebration of any event.
