Q : Where are you located? Do you travel?

A : I am located in St.Catharines, Ontario but I’m more than willing to travel both in and out of Canada. I’ve had my passport since I was 6 months old and I love to use it! Rates differ per location and services. Always more then up for travelling to the west or east coasts!


Q : Do you have back up equipment?

A: Yes! I always shoot with two camera bodies and a selection of lenses and flashes.


 Q : How would you describe your shooting style?

A: While I will definitely take posed and semi-posed photos of the family and bridal party on the wedding day, I also devote a lot of time to capturing candid photos. My goal is to capture the relationships between the bride and groom, their friends, and their families. It is to represent your love in its truest photographic form. I want to capture the intimate moments, the small details, and the moments you missed or just don’t remember as the day will surely become a blur!

I prefer to shoot natural light outside however I will use flashes where I feel it will be beneficial, including the reception.


 Q: How long will it take for me to get my wedding photos back?

A: Typically most wedding photos will be received approximately six to twelve weeks after the wedding during the busiest times (July to November). This is because I go through all of the images and personally and individually retouch each one that you will receive to ensure that your wedding photos are of the highest quality. If you are ordering albums, the process then will also then require the selection of the images for the albums, and then the production and delivery time is approximately three more weeks. If you want a faster turnaround time, an expedited editing fee of $500 will get you your photos in 7-10 days.


 Q : Do you do boudoir photography?

A : Yes! Brides, send me a message!


 Q; Do you shoot video?

A: While I am beginning to learn I do not offer video services at this time, however, I know many extremely talented videographers who would love to chat with you!  Just ask me for references.


Q : Do you offer gift cards?

A : Yes!  It can be made for any amount or type of shoot. Just send me a message.


Q: What gear do you use?

A: The camera bodies I use are a Canon 5DMKIII with a Canon 5DMKII for backup, and the lenses I always carry are the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L II, the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L IS, the 17-40 f/4 L, and the 100mm 1f/1.2mm L macro . For lighting I have two Canon 600RT flashes as well as a transmitter, and I carry an Einstein strobe with modifiers for rainy days. 


Q: How much do you charge?

A: Please visit the Pricing page for a little more information or please email me for exact pricing, but I can tell you that pricing typically starts at $1800 and is dependant on hours of photography, number of photographers, and if there are any additions such as albums, prints, boudoir, photo booth etc. All prices include a complimentary engagement shoot.
