Let’s work together! Weddings are my jam and working with other awesome creatives is a joy! While my role as a full-time primary only leaves me a couple of dates available per quarter, I love collaborating! I’m narrative-oriented with a generally glowing, natural style that is emotion-driven, always genuine and real, and I am here to help you. My goal is to make your job easier, to bring good energy, and to create great photographs that you can use, all while having a great time working together. Let’s get our fun on.\r\n\r\nBACKGROUND & APPROACH\r\nI exclusively second-shot for the first two years of my career before going full-time primary, so I’m as comfortable seconding as primary shooting. I’m energetic, friendly, fun, adaptable, and I don’t sweat the small stuff. I’m highly capable of representing other businesses in a professional and positive manner. I have a super strong work ethic (no breaks or drinking on the job!) and am reliable and responsible. I’d never shoot horrible dutch angle stuff or shoot over your shoulder, but I will give you ample usable, in-focus, and quality results. I shoot all-primes.\r\n\r\nI can wrangle groups for you, get people laughing, take care of details… whatever you need, I’m on it! My background as a graphic designer can definitely been seen in how I tell a story and compose with purpose: no spray-and-pray here! I’m happy to take direction from you, but as a full-time primary you can trust me to take care of things, so you won’t need to worry about micro-managing me, and I will stay tuned into where you are and what you’re shooting with in order to always compliment you while staying out of your way.\r\n\r\nSKILLS & ESSENTIAL DETAILS\r\nI’m both licensed and insured, experienced with on- and off-camera flash, great at both candid and posed portraits, and happy to share full sample wedding galleries when requested so you can see I’m super consistent. I generally prefer to shoot on your CFs and back up on my SDs (or vice versa) for convenience at the end of the night (no need to go through a long transfer, just hand cards back to you). I aim to provide primaries with around 100+ images per hour shot. I have plenty of my own gigs, so I am fine with signing off usage entirely to you. I’ll show up looking professional and appropriate. I prefer to finalize a booking about two-three months before the event date. \r\n\r\nFor lots more about me and to see more of my stuff, check out letsfrolictogether.com!\r\n\r\nDo let me know if you have any questions, or want to grab a coffee to get to know each other (or just geek out over our mutual love for midcentury modern style, furry friends, or wearing PJs to edit). Let’s work together!
