Some of My Favorites

KIND WORDS

We met Joel at a wedding festival in Sacramento. Since then he has always been so responsive to my questions and outlined the exact steps to be prepared for our engagement photo shoot, so it made us feel that we were being guided by a true professional through a process he was a master at. We are generally awkward in front of the camera lol, but Joel knew exactly how to direct our poses while also helping us be in the moment to artfully capture candid and intimate moments with all the epic views. Joel’s vibe aligns exactly with what we are seeking and we are impressed with our online gallery being completed in less than a week! We are SO excited to continue working with Joel for our wedding next year. If you’re looking for an elopement or traditional wedding photographer, 1000% recommend!

We begin with your vision

AND OUR ARTISTIC STYLE

Our photographic journey begins the moment you share your vision with us. We start with a personal consultation, where we dive deep into your wedding day dreams, and the emotions you wish to capture. This initial meeting is not just about understanding what you want but also about forming a connection that allows us to capture your essence authentically.

Following our consultation, we’ll decide if we are a good fit for each other and we can begin the booking process. The most important thing is to secure your date with a 25% retainer. Once booked, we’ll pick the perfect location that resonates with you for your engagement session. During the time leading up to your wedding day, you will have access to me to help with timeline creation, vendor recommendations, and more. I am full of wedding experience and eager to help my couples in any way.

My current photo turnaround time is 6-12 weeks. This will greatly depend on the date of your wedding and if I am in the middle of the busy wedding season as that will limit the time I am at my computer editing your photos. For Video you can expect 12 week minimum turnaround.

YES! I will provide you with sneak peeks within 24-48 hours following your wedding day.

I have 4 other Associate Photographers who can shoot weddings in my place if needed. I also contract 4-6 second photographers and videographers if needed.

My associate photographers are hand-picked by me. They show similar quality, artistic style, composition, and work ethic to mine. These are professional photographers who do not have booked weddings and prefer to shoot for hire. They then deliver the photos to me to Edit in my likeness. I would trust every one of my associate photographers to shoot my wedding.
