Are you a member of any Professional Photo Organizations?

Yes, I am a member of  ‘Professional Photographers of America (PPA).

How do I book a wedding, or family photo session?

Fill out the Contact form with as much information as possible. I’ll send you the Collection List or will build a custom one for you and send you a Proposal. The retainer is 50% of the total for the weddings. The rest of the balance is due a month before the wedding.

For Engagement/ Senior/ or any other Portrait Sessions, the Session Fee is due at the time of booking.

Please book in advance. I’m delivering the best client experience and making sure you get personalized attention, so I opt to do a limited amount of sessions per month!

What should we wear for an engagement/love story?

Couples are always trying to coordinate the colors of their clothes: say, both wearing earth tones, or carrying the same color through accessories/clothes. It doesn’t have to be one color shirts. If you go for a casual and relaxed effect, you may want to wear brighter colors. Some bold patterns, wide stripes, and logos, might distract from your beautiful eyes. Please check my Pinterest for ideas:
