Where are you based out of?
I am based out of Tofino, BC. I have been here for 8 years and it is home. Couples like to make trips when they book me in Tofino. However, I am available for travel and happy to do so!
How long have you been taking photos?
I have been taking pictures since I was ten years old when my grandpa taught me how to use a film camera. I have been photographing weddings for four years now and LOVE it.
What is your turnaround time?
In the busy times of summer and early fall, my turnaround time for all the post-processed photos is four weeks or less. You will also receive previews within one week, but that can be discussed if you need some photos sooner than that. I try to get through them as fast as possible while also making sure they get the attention and love they need.
Do you also deliver RAW files?
I don't provide RAW files to clients. I believe that part (maybe half!) of the magic of photography is the post-processing. I spend a lot of time going through images and making sure the colour is just right. If you feel like I've missed a photograph you were hoping for, let me know and I will share it with you.
How does the payment process work?
I require a 15% non-refundable deposit to book me for the date, alongside the contract. The remaining 85% is due one week before the wedding date or before. For payments, I can either accept e-transfer or credit card. With the credit card I charge an extra 2.5% transaction fee. I'm happy to work with your schedule, just ask!
What should we wear for our engagement shoot?
Vix ut utinam feugait. Eu scribentur liberavisse nec. Dico fugit nostro cu pri, no putent nemore mel, ius at minim molestiae
What if it rains?
Living in a temperate rain forest, this can happen any time of the year. What I need to say is I'm always amazed at how many sunny days we have for weddings. In 2019 I photographed only three rainy elopements and ZERO rainy weddings. What!? I know. It happens though I promise!
Be ready for all types of weather and bring your blundstones.
Do you help with planning?
Absolutely, yes! I strongly suggest hiring one of the planners at Rare Earth Weddings, but I love being part of the planning so we can fit in realistic windows for photography.
