Photography

IT’S ABOUT PEOPLE.

IT’S ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT PEOPLE.

“The longer I live, the more deeply I learn that love — whether we call it friendship or family or romance — is the work of mirroring and magnifying each other’s light.”

James Baldwin

Memory is a sacred thing, a direct line of connection to the moments that stand still in our minds—the monumental, the ordinary and everything-between. Rebecca Bengal, writer and photographer, expressed this when she said, “We know that a photograph lives in multiple eras at once: the time of its making, the time of its unveiling, the various eras of its subsequent rediscovery.”

Like finding an old family photo album, an archive of stories, threads of beauty and grief, memory is the narrative of our collective history.

It’s about more than just photography. These are moments in time, documented and rediscovered, each encounter offering profound and deeply personal meaning.

“We know that a photograph lives in multiple eras at once: the time of its making, the time of its unveiling, the various eras of its subsequent rediscovery.”

Frequently asked questions

How much should I expect to invest?

My rates vary depending on the specifi project in mind. Portraits begin at $600, weddings at $3,200 and nonprofit and humanitarian comissions are customized packages. If you’re interested in learning more, please reach out and I will provide you with more specific details!

Can we view a full gallery of your work?

Absolutely! I am more than happy to share previous galleries that best align with what you’re intersted in documenting. 

What do your packages include?

My packages include pre-planning consultation, session time, a gallery of digital hi-res images hosted online as well as post-delivery support. 

What is your rescheduling policy?

Whether someone gets sick or if the weather is less than ideal, I allow for one reschedule at no additional cost within a year of booking. Please keep in mind, I raise my rates anually and if you reschedule beyond a year, the difference will be reflected on the final invoice.

What is required to book with you?

In order to proceed with booking, I require a 50% retainer and a signed contract. For portrait sessions, the remainder is due anytime on or before the date of your session. For weddings, the reaminder is due 4 weeks prior to booking. Please keep in mind, your date and time are only reserved once the retainer has been paid and the contract has been signed. 

Do you travel for work?

I do, frequently! I keep my travel schedule posted here on my site. If you see a destination already listed, travel fees are waived. But if you’d like to work together and don’t see your specific location listed, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am always up for an adventure!

Do you offer mini sessions?

I only offer mini sessions to previous clients on specific dates at pre-determined locations. For me personally, I find it difficult to gauge new dyanmics and create my best work in such a short amount of time. It’s important to me you not only recieve beautiful photos at the end of our time but that you also had a great experience. Once I’ve had the opportunity to work with someone, it’s easier to provide a mini session.

PHILOSOPHY AND APPROACH

Photography is the art of observation and creation.

Where conceptualization meets collaboration, and where connection not only serves as inspiration, but as a necessary means to fruition.

When you hire a photographer, you’re not just asking someone to take pictures.

You’re inviting someone in to observe, to compose, to create.

And that is a beautiful partnership.

 

Working together truly looks like a collaborative experience, from start to finish. I want to provide you with images that genuinely reflect this season of your life, in all its glorious imperfection. If you’re looking for polished and posed, I may not be the best fit. But if you’re looking for photographs that feel genuine and true to you, let’s get creative together.
