I believe that no two couples and no two weddings are the same, and that your wedding should be a beautiful and unapologetic representation of your relationship and lives together. My goal is to be your personal photojournalist, a fly on the wall for every organic moment that you might have missed otherwise. I’ll be as hands-off as you like me to be; I’m a pretty down-to-earth person, and I try to reflect that in my work by only being as involved in posing and directing as you prefer. I’d always rather facilitate an environment where you can be yourself wholeheartedly instead of trying to turn you into something you aren’t or making you feel uncomfortable for the sake of a photo. On the same note though, please tell me if there’s something specific you want captured! I love hearing about traditions, special touches, and the people you want to make sure you have photos with. I’m here to create a photo essay of your wedding as it unfolds, and then wrap it back up into a collection of memories that you can pour over again and again. If that sounds great to you, let’s start talking! I encourage communication, beer/coffee meetings, and plenty of questions.

Travel

I love traveling to new places for weddings. If you want me there, I'll be there. Fee-wise, this is what that looks like:

- All of my packages include travel for up to 35 miles outside the 28226 zipcode. 
- Anything beyond that, I charge $50 per hour spent driving. 
- If you're five hours or more away, I will kindly ask that you cover the cost of a plane ticket. 
- If you're three hours or more away, I ask that you cover the cost of a hotel for the night before the wedding and the night of. 
- If you're located in another country, I  ask that you cover the cost of a hotel for the night before the wedding and the night of, the cost of a rental car, and half of the airfare. 

All of this will be covered in the contract you sign, and I'm more than happy to go over it in greater detail with you at the consultation!


So congratulations! You made it through my introduction and pricing guide. How we proceed from here is totally up to you. If you feel awesome and want to book me, let's do it! Send me an e-mail and let me know what package you think works best from you, and I'll get my contract to you straight away. If you still have lingering questions, send me those too! I'm always up for educating, answering questions and helping you feel as informed as possible. If you've decided that we're not a good fit, or if you decide to go in another direction, please let me know! If I don't hear anything from you, I won't know whether to hold your date or not, and it very legitimately breaks my heart when people get back to me only to find that their date is no longer available. 

Regardless of how we move forward from this moment, know that I am genuinely so excited for you and this next chapter of your life. I hope everything flows beautifully and falls into place, and that you have time to just sit back and be excited about getting married. It's wonderful and special, and you have all my best wishes!

Warmly,

Elli
