My Process


1. View

My Portfolio

You’ve probably been checking out lots of different photographers in this process - That’s great! My work has a specific style and artistic direction. I want to make sure that my work is the perfect fit before you book me. Have a good look at my portfolio to get a sense of what to expect when working with me.

2. Connect

Get Acquainted

I’m all about real, authentic moments & honest, heartfelt relationships. Let's connect and have a conversation. You can ask any questions you may have, figure out how we fit together and whether my style is right for you.

3. Book

Save The Date

Once we’ve gotten to know each other we can book the day officially. To guarantee your date I require a signed contract and deposit. Once you‘re ready just let me know and I’ll send through the contract & payment info.
