candid + posed

But also yes to the subtle guidance + prompting to bring out the belly laughs, possible tears, and to make sure you get some stellar photos for years to come.

exclusivity + inclusivity

With a very limited number of weddings taken on each year, more energy and attention can be given to each unique couple. EVERY kind of love is WELCOME HERE. no exceptions <3

intentional captures

Every piece of your day has a little of your flair and has been hand chosen. Intentional storytelling is capturing each small moment to create one big story.

timeless editing

With an editing styled inspired by Kodak Color Film, your images will stand the test of time! Although my editing falls more on the "moodier" side, I believe this best tells emotion + is the most inclusive for POC. No weird skin tones here!

Your wedding deserves to be photographed in all it's EPIC glory! When you look back at your photos, you should be able to FEEL again what you felt. YOUR LOVE and LIFE is beautiful - regardless of if your wedding took place on a mountaintop, venue, church, beach, or in your backyard.

Book if we feel that it's a good fit!

I will now be your official photo friend (let's be real, I'll be your friend at 1.)

I love connecting with my clients on social media and giving a helping hand wherever possible! Wedding planning can be so stressful and I'm here to help.

4.

Meet at YOUR wedding!! (OR at your engagement session!)

Now that we've cultivated a friendship, you can breathe much easier when all of your needs/wants/dreams have been shared with someone who is there to make sure all your moments are captured!

FAQ

Do you travel?

YES I love to travel, anywhere and everywhere!

How much is the retainer/deposit for weddings?

For weddings, I charge a $500 non refundable retainer to hold your date!

How many pictures will we receive for a wedding?

For weddings I guarantee 75+ edited photos per hour booked! I am an oversharer though, so this is your warning. On average my clients receive between 700-1,000 images.

Do you have videographers you recommend?

Yes!! I have two awesome video partners! We work seamlessly as as team. See my website tab - Honey Fox X Takke
and Alexia Gornichec X Takke.

On average, how much do clients typically spend when booking with you?

My wedding couples typically invest between $4,000-$6,000!

We're awkward, and need help with posing. Do you pose us?

Yes! I pose and prompt you to bring out those good laughs and sweet emotions. I'm always trying to make your experience fun and easy going so it won't be those awkward smiling at the camera photos, but don't worry you'll get some of those too.

Can I see a full wedding gallery?

Absolutely! Email for past gallery links!

How will our photos be delivered?

All your photos are delivered in high resolution via online gallery which you get to download/share as many times as you want with full printing and social media rights. I also keep your edited photos on an external hard drive just in case, but it's best if you download them to a safe place!

Do you offer printing? Do I have to print through you?

I do offer easy access printing directly through your gallery!
Nope!! You can print with whoever you want, with full printing rights for personal use!

Will you photoshop things out of photos or alter my appearance?

If something is small and easy to take out, I usually will remove it! If it's a regular part of the landscape/area, then no, I will leave it. I try to shoot in a way as to minimize the amount of photoshopping I'll have to do. I like to save that time of your editing to work on skin!
I try to keep my photos more lifestyle and less "perfect" because that's just how life is! It's messy and I'm more focused on capturing the moments and the emotions.

When will we get our photos back?

My turn around time for weddings is 15-90 days! I do typically send previews within a week of the wedding. I am such a perfectionist and spend a lot of time editing.

Do you have a bucket list?!

I sure do!!!! Email for this info!

How long have you been a wedding photographer?

5 years full time doing this wonderful gig! I've had the chance to travel and meet so many incredible people. I've been doing photography for 7 years *paid*, but 15+ years as a hobby!

What gear do you shoot with?

I primarily shoot on the Canon R6 + the Canon 5D MKIV. I also have a backup Canon 5D MKIII, Sony A6000, and a Canon A-1 film camera.
