SHOW ME THE MONEY
Let's talk about money because it needs to be mentioned. That and it can be the elephant in the room. As far as it goes though, pricing is dependent on location and availability with the average wedding starting at $2,300 and lifestyle & portrait sessions starting at $250. That being said, before photography was about running a business, it was about being able to provide quality images to the friends and family that I photographed. As the business grows though, I want to always make sure I can still provide quality images at a price that works for you. Because of that, I'm willing to work with your budget and see if we are the best fit moving forward for your session.
I offer payment plans, but for more information please contact me for a full pricing guide.

A typical wedding collection will include: 6-10 hours of coverage (12 being the maximum), High-Resolution & Web-Size Resolution Images, Personal Print Release, Engagement Session, 2 Photographers (100+ Guests), and a wedding album (restricted to certain collections).
2. WHAT DOES A LIFESTYLE & PORTRAIT COLLECTION INCLUDE?
Depends. It depends on what your needs are for your session. That being said, an average lifestyle & portrait session includes: 1-2 hours of coverage, Online gallery with the chance to purchase prints and digitals, and a minimum of 15 photos per session.
3. HOW DO I PAY?

4. DO YOU TRAVEL?
Do I ever! If you are requesting a destination wedding, which is anything outside of Washington and Oregon, please make note of the location on the contact form below
5. DO YOU OFFER PRINTS?
With every session, I provide an online gallery where you can purchase prints through me. If you choose to print elsewhere I do recommend a lab that has archival paper that will make your prints look great for the years to come.
6. SPEAKING OF PRINTS: A) WHY SHOULD WE PRINT THEM? B) WHY ARE THEY SO EXPENSIVE?
A. You should print them because the sense of touch is a big part of photography. It's one thing to visually see the memory, but it's another thing to hold the memory in your hands. Plus I, as well as other photographers, work really hard on your images so that they could be displayed outside of the internet. Like on your walls or on your coffee table.
B. While you could go to Costco, Wal*Mart, or wherever else you could receive prints for a dime and a nickel, one of the reasons why prints are so expensive is because of the paper and quality of the images in the aftermath. Over time, the prints from Costco, Wal*Mart, and other places will fade or even change colors. I am lucky enough to work with a professional lab that prints on archival paper that will keep your photos looking fresh over the years.
7. ONLY BECAUSE THE WEDDING WIRE MADE IT A BIG DEAL ...
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III with top of the line quality lenses. I also do not give out unedited/RAW images as I only provide clients with finished products.
