Two of the best decisions I've made in life both revolve around photography. The first was when I decided to take high school photography. The second is when I decided to teach high school photography. I am just as proud (if not more so) being a teacher as I am a professional photographer.
My vision for photography and teaching are one and the same: bringing out the best in the people I work with.
Whether it is getting a couple to smile naturally during an engagement session or inspiring my high school students to bring their ideas to life, I enjoy every minute of working with people. My philosophy for both professions is also parallel—working with enthusiasm and energy, and most importantly, getting to know the people I work with so that the end result is a reflection of their personality and vision.
All my clients are gorgeous. Just like all my students are brilliant. And it is my job to make them believe it as much as the world sees it.
What are your photography prices?
Do I have to order prints through you?
How far in advance can I reserve you?
Do you travel outside of the Bay Area?
Will you teach me photography and if so, what are your rates?
Prices vary upon client needs. Contact me for packages and to discuss the details of the event or session. Weddings start at $4,000 and a portrait sessions at $400.
I always encourage clients to order prints through the client gallery. I send the order to a professional lab and can assure that the best quality print is made. However, it is not required to order prints if your package came with digital downloads.
Typically reservations come in from 6 months to a year in advance for weddings. This allows for plenty of time to photograph the engagement (and for me to get to know you better). Portrait sessions can be booked within two weeks to a month in advance. Events can be booked at anytime and will be dependent on availability.
Yes, absolutely! There will be an additional travel fee depending on distance of travel, but I love exploring new places!
I currently teach the Intro to Photography class as well as the Natural Light Portrait class at Aperture Academy. It is workshop based, class sizes are small, and you get hands on experience. I highly recommend looking into it. If you prefer a one-on-one class, my photo consultation rates start at $250/hr.
