Each year this changes, but this year I’m only accepting 7. I do this so I can give my couples the best experience and photos possible and not spread myself thin. I focus on quality, not quantity. I’m not in this for the money, I’m in this for you. For reference, I used to do 70 weddings per year (yikes!).
I started when I was 14, shot my first wedding when I was 16, and am now 23! So almost a decade!
Salt Lake City, Utah! Plenty of my couples do so they can make a little trip out of getting photos done. Utah has tons of incredible places, national parks, landscapes, mountains, and deserts that I know like the back of my hand since I grew up here! If you want ideas for places in Utah to visit, shoot, or explore let me know!
Typically, yes! He’s pretty much always either shooting video or second shooting for me, so you’ll get to meet him haha. If you wanna learn more about adding on video, just ask! You can check out more of his team’s work at www.raisedbywoodsfilms.com!
Each one of my packages varies in how many images are delivered, but I promise I’ll always include plenty of images of everything I capture. I don’t like to give a cutoff number because I don’t believe in withholding any images from you to get you to pay more like some photographers do. These are your memories, I promise to capture them fully and give you more than enough images to remember this time in your lives.

Since I take on such a limited amount of jobs per year, I have a faster turnaround time than most photographers! The turnaround depends on how much I shoot, how busy I am, my travel schedule, and the holidays. Typically, for sessions it takes 3 weeks or less and weddings take 5 weeks or less. I try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image needs.
No, as I believe that editing is half the magic that goes into images and without this huge step the images are only halfway done. I promise to never leave any photos out that you’ll want/need, and if you feel I missed delivering a photo, just ask! I’m more than happy to check back through my images and send it over to you (I make mistakes, no lie!). I won’t let you miss out on your memories!
I require 30% retainer to secure your spot on my calendar, and the remaining 70% is due 3 months in advance for weddings, 2 months in advance for shoots. You can split these payments (up to 3 payments) if you’d like to help make it more affordable. I’m happy to work with your schedule!
I believe in promoting self love and body positivity, so I don’t alter the way you look other than skin blemishes or anything temporary that would not normally be there (bruise, scrape, acne etc unless you’d like me to keep it the photos). If you’re especially self conscious about something, please let me know as I’ll be sure to be extra aware of that while I’m posing you. Also if you want me to photoshop in lightsabers or a dinosaur I can definitely do that.
I’ve got a what to wear guide I’ll send over, don’t worry I’ve got you!
If you’ve already put a deposit down on a date then have to move/cancel it, the deposit is legally non-refundable and a new deposit will have to be made in order to hold your new date.

Heaven forbids this happens, as it would only happen if it were out of my control (act of god, illness, death, etc) but in this case I would do my best to help find a replacement photographer to take my place that I trust with a similar style, although I’m not legally held to do so. If I can’t make it to your wedding your money will be refunded.
I always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way, as it’s beautiful and unique in photos. If it is harsh enough that it would make for a shitty time at our shoot and I can reschedule (or ruin my gear), then we totally will!
Absolutely! I’ve shot hundreds of weddings (and am married myself!) so I know the industry pretty dang well! Let me know what you need help with, if you need recommendations, and if there’s anything I can do to make the process easier for you!
Some photographers do set travel fees, I don’t. I just have you pay for the bare minimum (flight, transportation, stay) and I cover the rest. I’m also open to staying with you, your family, camping or sharing an airbnb with you to help save you $$$. And if it works out on both ends I’m also more than happy to get picked up and dropped off at the airport to save on paying for a rental car!
For booking, I book flights and rental car on my own (you can book my stay if you’d like, but I am firm on booking my own flights + transportation). I make sure to get your confirmation on logistics + price before booking anything to ensure there are no surprise costs on your end! Once booked, the payment for them is due within one week of receiving your invoice.
You can estimate costs by checking how much hotels/airbnbs typically cost in the area we will be staying, how much roundtrip flights are from SLC, and rental cars are typically around $50 per day or less when booked in advance.
I don’t anymore, unless it’s for couples who I’ve shot in the past. Kids just kind of hate me haha, I can help you out with recommendations if you need! I do love shooting maternity though!
Nope.
