Lifestyle is a photography style based on how we are in real life, who we truly are. A less staged approach, more natural and open compared to classic studio sessions. I guide you through the session by staying open to who you are and what represents you most.
Depending on the type of session you are looking for, you should at least reserve your session a month prior to the date you wish to set your session. For maternity session, the sooner the better to ensure a spot in my schedule in time for the perfect belly!
Most of my sessions take place outside, with the exception of newborn sessions. Together we find the perfect spot for your session. A place that you love, that represents your story or that you simply get inspired by. The most important is to find a versatile place to ensure variety in the images.
Don't worry about finding the perfect location for the session! You have to see it as an canvas. It's not the star, you are. It's easy to find a place that will suits your needs and mine. It's part of my service to help you find the location, it's all about the perfect team! A nice park, on riverside, on a top of a mountain, at a lavender field, downtown or simply at your family cottage. Most of the time, the simpliest ideas are the best.
The usual turnaround for images is 2 to 3 weeks. You will be able to pick your 20 favorite images through an online gallery. To your liking, you will have the possibility to purchase extra images or the entire gallery (approx 50 images). All the images will be delivered to you on a wooden USB key, kept in a beautiful custom wooden case. Images will be ready for prints up to 8x12.
Of course! I strongly recommend that you order your enlargements through my service if you wish to be fully satisfied by the appearance of the prints. I am working with a professional laboratory to ensure highest quality products. You can purchase enlargements after you have selected your images.
I am mostly a lifestyle photographer. Spontaneous, sensitive, raw. I mostly go with the flow. I like to say that I genuinely guide you instead of setting a rigid pose. I am always open to work with whatever comes up. I like to give you time to live in the moment so that your true self can shine. I like to give you some room so that you feel welcome to be yourself. I focus on little things that make your story special; a slight touch, a deap breath, a warm look, a laugh. I like to share the magic that I see. My favorite part is when I here you say '' Oh my gosh how did you catch this! ''.
I strongly recommend that you contact me as soon as your date is officially set with the venue. I am the only photographer, which means that I can only book one wedding per date.
Setting up a meeting is the best way for me to understand your needs. 1000$ is due upon reservation. This fee guarantees that I will not book any other contract on your wedding day. It also covers the travel, meeting fees, consultation and research required for your wedding. This amount will be automatically deducted from your final invoice.
I always work with an assistant. At certain key moments, she becomes a second photographer to ensure different point of view. It allows me to be more creative and to focus on different aspect of a situation. I always use the exemple of the bride walking down the aisle; we want to have an image of the groom looking at her also. It is nice to be able to catch some emotional reaction of the family around the couple also. It would be impossible to efficently do that alone. Also, being two sets of eye on a single situation allow me to be sure that all the details are taking care of.
You can expect to have a sneak peek 48 hrs after your wedding. Your final images will be delivered 4 to 8 weeks after the wedding day. Turnaround for enlargements is 3-4 weeks. You can expect to receive your wedding album 4 to 8 weeks after the final approval.
