What does Boutique Wedding Photography mean?
A.Did you know that an average photographer typically covers about 40-50 weddings annually? That's roughly a week per wedding, leaving minimal time to truly focus on the significance of your special day, especially when considering other photography commitments. Personally, I believe that weddings merit a more substantial commitment. After all, it's a day you've likely envisioned for a lifetime.
As a Boutique Wedding Photographer, I intentionally limit myself to a maximum of 20 weddings per year. This deliberate choice allows me the opportunity to connect deeply with each couple beforehand, meticulously plan every detail, fully immerse myself in your event without the distraction of imminent shoots, and personally handcraft each of your exquisite images. This approach ensures that I dedicate the time and attention that your beautiful day deserves.
How would you describe your style?
A.I see my photography style as bold yet timeless. I believe that wedding photographs should endure the test of time. Your final collection will harmoniously combine candid moments and thoughtfully posed shots, incorporating a balance of light and dark tones to enhance the essence of each scene. These images are crafted to resonate beautifully for years to come, capturing the essence of your special day.
Do you get to know your couples beforehand?
A.Absolutely! As your dedicated photographer, I'll be by your side throughout the entirety of your special day. It's essential for me to grasp not just your roles as the bride and groom, but to understand both of you as individuals. I delight in engaging in conversations and sharing light-hearted moments because your wedding day embodies joy and celebration. It's not unusual for me to feel a touch of emotion during the heartfelt "I dos"...
Do you have packages?
