how do you choose a second shooter?
4-6 weeks before your wedding, I’ll hire a second shooter as an independent contractor for your wedding. I do extensive research to form a pool of qualified candidates; I learn about their equipment, their personalities, and their work. Hiring a second shooter in this frame of time means that there’s less risk of cancelling to take another job, vacation, etc. This means I’m able to hire the best-of-the-best available! All editing, delivery, and communication will remain solely through me.
How does having a second shooter help us?
All of my packages come with a second shooter included. I believe it’s the best way to serve my couples because this ensures maximum coverage of your wedding day! The short version: you’ll get more photos. The longer version: you’ll get more angles + coverage than what I could cover alone, simply because I can’t be in two places at once. For instance, while I’m shooting creative portraits of you two, my second shooter could be covering cocktail hour.
what should we wear to our engagement shoot?
Before your engagement shoot, I’ll send you a whole guide of outfit inspiration + tips! It includes ideas based on time of day, location, lighting, etc.
do you travel for weddings?
Abso-freakin-lutely! I’m passionate about traveling and would be so pumped to document your wedding day, wherever the adventure may be taking place. Travel fees vary due to lodging + transportation costs, and are determined on a case-by-case basis. However, if I’m already in your area, there may be a chance to waive the travel fee! Travel fees are not required for any location within 50 miles of Los Feliz, California.
