To be able to pay special attention to all my amazing clients I only book between 15 and 20 weddings per year.

STEP 3: CONTACT ME AND GET THE BALL ROLLING!

Contact me and we can chat on the phone, or by Skype, or in person at my studio in San Francisco. If I’m the right wedding photographer for you, I can send  you my contract for you and your fiance to review.

STEP 4: CONFIRM A DATE, THEN SEND IN YOUR CONTRACT AND DEPOSIT

I take a very limited number of weddings per year so that I can provide only the best quality images for my couples. Other photographers out there end up choosing to over book themselves and suffer from burn out and the quality of their work suffers. I can assure you that I put a lot of thought and care into preparing for your day as depend on your kind words to work with future couples.  At our in person consultation at my studio we’ll go over my style of photography, how the wedding day will be with me there, and we’ll sign your contract and collect your deposit. The deposit locks your date with me, without it you could lose your place me to other couples.
