Most of my wedding couples book about 12-18 months in advance, but it isn’t uncommon to also have a handful of bookings within 12 months, and very occasionally there will be last minute work that comes. Jocelyn and Daniela broke this record though, reaching out to me only weeks before their nuptials! I quickly learned […]

This is the first year that I’ve put together a “Best of…” blog post for any of my photography work, and it was quite a bit of work. However it was worth all of the time, as 2019 was my best year yet for wedding photography. In 2019 I photographed over 40 weddings in a […]

Maximillian reached out to me just about a year ago after finding me on Instagram. As a photographer himself, “Maxi” let me know that he was a big fan of my photography and that he was also a photographer himself.
