I love working with my clients to determine what kind of portraits they want, and helping figure out where in the timeline we can incorporate them. Can we grab a few moments of you alone after you get dressed? Is there time for that? Are individual portraits best taken during the portraits of the two of you together?

Helping with timelines and the plans of the day is just part of my job as a wedding photographer. I am absolutely not the photographer who books a client and then doesn’t chat with them until the week before the wedding! While your timeline might be handled by your coordinator, I’m always here to talk through any part of the day you need help figuring out.
