It is true that not everyone finds their inner rock star the minute a camera trains on them  However, truth is, even rock stars get awkward in front of the camera.

With 20 + years of experience, I am always calm and relaxed and that rubs off on the people I am working with.  I’m efficient and effective, providing the guidance you need to create vibrant, authentic portraits that are as real as each moment of your day.

Once you enjoy the experience, the rest is easy, and just like that, we’re back at the party!


I shoot Leica. My current fave is the Leica SL and SL2. Ok,  I am in love with it.  I have a full back up.

Crazy things happen like the time I got tossed in a pool with a bunch of drunken groomsmen. Waterproof cards and a *full* backup system on dry land saved that night! Phew!

Do you use a second shooter?

I have a great team of second shooters that I am able to contract for a nominal rate (approx $450 for an 8 hour day) .

Not all Weddings require a second shooter. During an intimate, low key wedding , I can be more ninja-like working alone. 

Do you have any reviews?
I’m blessed to have worked with some of the most wonderful couples who have had some kind words to say about my services. You can view dozens of rave reviews on my WeddingWire profile.
Photographers can only shoot one wedding at a time. Once you have decided I am the photographer for you, I recommend that you get in touch soon to secure your date.
How do I book you for our wedding?
It’s simple! Get in touch and we’ll set up a time to chat details.
We’re very busy and won’t be able to meet. What are our other options?
No time to meet? I get it!

We can chat via email, facetime or phone. Please get in touch to set up a time to chat.

How do you accept payment?
I accept payment via PayPal, Interac eTransfer or Cheque.
What if we go over the contracted hours?
Weddings don’t always go as planned and time can easily flow over.  My clients can add additional hours at a pre-established rate should they need.
Do you travel?
Sure, I travel… where are we going?
Do you offer last-minute / elopement shoots?
There is something so magical and pure about elopements. If I am available, I’ll offer you a great “seat sale” on last-minute bookings
Wedding Day
How much time should we set aside for wedding day photos?
I like to keep the formal shoots on the short side, but we don’t rush it.

No one wants to be kept out of the action for too long but it’s realistic to plan for at least an hour. Together we will review your schedule and goals and create a plan to help you balance out your timeline.

How long do you stay on our wedding day?
I am there for the time you would like my services. I have shot 1-hour weddings, and I have shot a 19-hour wedding.

The average time I spend at a wedding is in the 8-10 hour range. This is all arranged beforehand.

We have a lot of down time during the day. do you charge for that?

Though not common, there are some events that have a major break in the day.

If I am able to accommodate a split schedule, I am happy to do so. That said, downtime can yield incredible moments…


Do we provide a meal for the photographer?
I do appreciate a meal – thank you!

I do not need a seat at a guest table but I do like to eat in the main room. That way, I can be ready to catch a special moment, or two. I’m always on the lookout for those!

Image Delivery
What rights do I have to the digital image files?
While I do have artistic rights to my images, you are, of course, free to print them, post them, and use them in any way you like!

Looking to be published? I have lots of connections in the industry. Be sure to chat with me about this, if you’re interested.


During an 8 hour day,  I typically take about 2500 images!

Of these images, approximately 800 images will be edited ( roughly 100 images per hour shot)


Can I have every single image you take from my wedding?
Some people want all the images. I get that. Want the Raw files? I get that too. Happy to help.

Simply provide me with an external hard drive for storage, as these files are BIG!

What is the turnaround time?

Your sneak peeks are delivered the next day so you can start to share!

The rest of your images will be ready about 4-6 weeks after your wedding.

I do try to accommodate rush requests if I can.

Do you offer albums?
I LOVE to help craft albums of your extraordinary day. There are so many options, let’s sit down and chat about them.
