How would you describe your style? My illustrative style of photography blends together traditional and photo-journalistic, with an emphasis on composition, lighting and background. This style captures some of the spontaneity of candids, while offering the technical control of posed shots.
Is this your full time job? Yes...I am a fulltime professional photographer.
Have you completed any formal photography schooling? Yes...I have completed the full photography program at EVCC. In addition, I continue to attend as many workshops and classes as possible.
Are you licensed & insured? Yes. I am licensed with the state of Washington and carry full coverage liability insurance.
What kind of equipment do you shoot with? I am a Canon girl and shoot with professional gear including backup camera bodies & lenses.
Do you have a backup plan in case of an emergency? Yes...I am a member of PPA and also affiliated with several professional groups that cover each other in case of an emergency.
Do you have a 2nd photographer? I'm super lucky to have my husband Tony as my 2nd shooter when a 2nd shooter is required. We work well together as he knows how I work and what I expect and my couples always love him!
Do you edit the photos? Yes...I fully edit all of your wedding images prior to uploading them to your gallery. My philosophy is that you are paying me as a professional to photograph and produce a final product which includes editing/retouching. After all...shouldn't a bride should look her best on her wedding day?
Do you charge for travel? I don't charge extra for any location in the State of Washington. Outside of Washington varies depending on the location.
Do you attend the rehearsal? I always try and attend the rehearsal as long as I don't have previous commitments.
