Wedding photography

It’s hard not to get caught up in the magic of weddings as a photographer. Capturing partners in their element, at places that are meaningful to them, surrounded by their favorite people. And the desserts. Let’s not forget the desserts.

And all of the details that make a wedding so human.

A shy flower child hesitantly walking down the aisle; a warm sunset glowing behind guests at cocktail hour; the DIY details that were many weekends in the making; the inevitable confused glances from the couple as they try to figure out how to cut the cake.

I document moments as they unfold — setting aside Pinterest boards, leaving room for raw emotions and interactions to tell your love story.

Standard wedding collections start at $3,800 and include a flash drive with your images, along with a high-res, online gallery of your photos to download and use as you’d like. Packages can be customized based on your coverage needs, so don’t hesitate to reach out. Local elopement packages or intimate weddings with less coverage are typically $445/hour.

Although I’m a Philadelphia wedding photographer, I’ll happily travel for destination weddings and elopements. Whether I’m photographing a couple on the West Coast or an intimate ceremony in Brooklyn, I’m constantly reminding myself how lucky I am. I’m always looking for an excuse to travel, so please don’t hesitate to inquire about your wedding.

Engagement photography

It’s not uncommon for clients to have nervous jitters before an engagement shoot. Is your eye twitching at the mere thought of having to come up with poses for the camera? I’ve totally been there and promise it’ll be a good time.

Part of being a photographer is knowing when to direct you. Good direction means making you look even more natural in that natural-looking photograph. It means knowing when to ask you to pose straight-faced, when I know you’ll probably end up laughing hysterically in a matter of seconds. It means coming up with a location that will suit your personalities. And it means getting to know each other in advance so we aren’t total strangers on your wedding day.

Engagement sessions are included in select packages, otherwise can be booked à la carte for $600.

Lifestyle + family photography

To me, lifestyle photography is about people doing everyday things in their own environment — preparing a meal together, parenting with pajamas on, strolling around a neighborhood park. It’s upbeat, optimistic, fun, lighthearted, (exhausting, if we’re being real) and most of all, believable. So that doesn’t mean there won’t be tantrums or exploding diapers.

I encourage the families I work with to laugh often and think of me as a fly on the wall. I enjoy documenting families as they truly are. I love portraits that capture a day in the life, as it happens, while taking the ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary.

Rates start at $600 and include up to 2 hours spent on location with your family, documenting your relationships in a candid and unobtrusive way. Session can include daily routines at home or a family outing together at a park. Clients typically receive 100 images per hour, delivered via a password-protected gallery, and the rights to print and share photos (with credit). 

Please contact me for travel rates if you are not located in Greater Philadelphia. As always, a 50% non-refundable retainer and signed contract is required to reserve your coverage.
