FULL DAY COVERAGE
Full day coverage means that on your wedding day I will be there from when you need me until when you don't and neither of us has to worry about rushing. I always prefer to take my time, absorb the surroundings and letting events unfold as they may. I will work with you or your planner to craft a photography timeline that will ensure you get the wedding photos you're looking for. My goal is to tell the story of your day in a beautiful, creative and honest way. Full-day wedding collections begin at $4000. Please be in touch for a detailed guide.
No two weddings are alike and I have seen many couples opt for a curated affair that does not utilize full-day photography coverage. For these instances, also known as small weddings, weekday affairs, last-minute bookings and elopements; I offer an hourly rate so you can customize the amount of coverage you need. Please be in touch for a detailed guide.
What are your rates?
Full-day wedding photography coverage begins at $4000. I offer custom pricing for small weddings, weekday events, last-minute bookings and elopements. Please contact me for a complete guide.
Do you shoot destination weddings?
I do. I travel frequently and document a maximum of 3 destination weddings per year. Some of my favourite destination weddings have been in Tuscany, New Orleans, Havana, Tulum and a tiny mountain town called Ymir in BC. Destination wedding rates are inclusive of travel costs. Please be in touch for a more detailed breakdown.
We are totally awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera, will you help us?
Absolutely. Please think of me as your wedding confidant, your art director and your friend. I will help you look good, feel good and guide you to be prepared for the unexpected.
Do you work with another photographer?
I mostly work by myself but I have a stacked roster of talented Toronto wedding photographers I call upon when an additional photographer is required.
How and when will we receive our photos?
Wedding post-production takes between 6-8 weeks and all other sessions take 2-3 weeks. You will receive your high resolution digital files in an online gallery which is available for downloading and ordering prints. Wedding clients receive a USB, keepsake box and sample prints. Item materials and colours may vary.
What equipment do you use? Do you have backups?
I pack as light as possible while ensuring I'm able to produce the highest quality work in any location, weather or lighting scenarios. I've tested lots of camera gear and have my kit narrowed down to the absolute best combination for me. I've been known to bring along toy cameras, light modifiers and instant cameras on a wedding day, to keep things fresh. I take backups seriously and I have backups for my backups; everything from digital files, to camera hardware to wedding day socks and shoes.
How can we book you?
Weddings are booked on a first-come-first-serve basis. I require a 20% deposit and a signed contract to confirm your booking. Availability is not guaranteed until bookings are confirmed.
How far in advance should we book?
I book most dates approximately 1 - 1.5 years in advance. I shoot between 20 - 25 weddings every year.
Do we need a photography permit?
For most locations (especially in Toronto), a permit is required to conduct a professional photography session. They're easy to get but often come with a fee. I will help you figure out when permits are needed and how to go about obtaining one.
We have specific photo requests, can we give you a list?
I always ask for a detailed list of formal family shots and I am happy to try and accommodate if there is a special image you have in mind. Shot lists are often counterproductive to my style of photography. Hire me because you trust my vision and skills. I want to tell the story of your day in the best, most original way possible.
Can we bring our dog?
Yes! Please consider bringing along a friend to take care of your pup when they're not involved in the shoot.
Can we meet you?
Yes! I work from the most beautiful co-working space Toronto has to offer. Be in touch and I'll have you over for a coffee/tea and view of the skyline.
