Intentional photographs to make you feel.
Over my years of growing as an artist and human, the way I view and appreciate relationships has changed. Going through it all - the good, the hard, the messy, the joyous - changes who you are.
I'm drawn to weddings and elopements because there's a level of intimacy in the relationships present that tell a story without words. When your celebration is planned with intention, there's no pressure to be performative, or to be something that you're not.
Whether you want to elope on a mountaintop, or gather your people for a small celebration at your favourite spot, or host a backyard wedding in a tent under the stars... There's no right or wrong. I'm here to capture all the moments of your day so you have tangible memories forever.
It's not about what your day looks like - it's more about what it feels like.
As your wedding photographer, I capture fragments of you through moments and then piece them back together - a kind of messy, beautiful jigsaw puzzle. Trust is the most important thing for me to document your day honestly.
I'm not the photographer for everyone, and that's ok. When you can put your absolute trust in me, I'm at my most creative and able to make sure you're comfortable and have fun. I want you to be yourselves in every moment.
You are welcome here regardless of race, background, ability, or sexual orientation. I'm your BIPOC friendly, LGBTQIA2S+ friendly destination wedding photographer.
We live on borrowed earth and I believe it's our responsibility to respect and protect nature while we're together. I'm a Leave No Trace certified photographer and offer eco-friendly print products.
I promise to be more than a vendor, and want you to feel comfortable coming to me with anything you need, anytime.
Your wedding is an opportunity to reaffirm your values, what's important to you, and what you want your future to hold. Your wedding, your way.
There are so many moments in our lives that we barely notice, let alone remember. When you're wrapped up in the here and now, intentionally immersing yourself in the present, all you can do is FEEL.
✖ Not worry about all the things you need to do.
✖ Not think about what's happening next week.
✖ Not stress about what's happening next year.
When you're in the moment, you're allowing yourself to just be. Fully yourself, fully immersed in the experience.
After everything is said and done, that's what I'm here to preserve for you. That's why I love what I do and why it's so important that we're on the same page. I want to be there for you so you can forget about the camera, enjoy every moment, and not have to worry about missing a single thing.

I love candid, motion-fuelled images that showcase you, your connection, and nature. I direct you and guide you through the shoot while letting the two of you hold space for each other to just be yourselves, be goofy, and have fun.
I love letting the light create different moods, and gravitate toward earthy, warm tones and compositions that allow your story to shine through.
Yes! I love to travel, and I LOVE to help you plan dream elopements and small weddings all over the world! Whether you have an idea or concept, or have NO clue where to start, reach out to me and I can help!
I do my best work when exploring and in the outdoors. Some bucket list destinations are Greece, Turkey, San Juan Islands, Iceland, New Zealand, Patagonia, and Scotland (and to go back to India + Ireland!).
After you reach out, we set up a time to do a quick virtual or phone chat. Afterward, a non-refundable retainer and a signed contract holds your date, and then I send you more guides and planning resources!
You can absolutely do a payment plan! A flat fee of $1500 for weddings and $500 for sessions is due as a non-refundable retainer to hold your date, but the remainder can be broken down into a payment plan, which can be paid by credit card or e-transfer.
I help direct and prompt you, and guide you into certain movements, but don't "pose" you. I much prefer the fun, fluid, candid images that happen when you're NOT trying to look a certain way. I'll guide you through the entire process, so don't stress about any stray hairs blowing across your face or what to do with your hands!
I don't do set numbers for my collections because it varies from one wedding to the next, but on average these are the numbers you can expect. Regardless of the number though, I make sure to capture all the big and little moments and details because these are your memories so I don't skimp on what I present to you! These are just minimums to give you an idea:
Full day coverage, plus an additional event the day before/day after! Planning a wedding weekend is such an amazing way to tell your full story. You can go for a hike with your dogs the night before, host a bbq and go swimming with your people, or have a boozy brunch the day after your wedding. It's always a blast!
Whether you have 2 guests or 20, you can still call it an elopement. It's about crafting an experience that means something to you, rather than following the traditional rules of what a wedding "should" be and losing sight of your deeper WHY in the process. I've photographed small weddings with 40 guests that had the same vibes and intimacy as a 2 person elopement.
Besides colour correcting, I only retouch impermanent blemishes/marks/bruises (basically, anything that isn't permanent). I don't retouch anything that's part of your body (curves, double chins, beauty marks, etc). If you're self conscious about something please let me know! I want to make sure you're 100% confident and comfortable with the direction I give you while I shoot!
A first look on your wedding day is SO amazing and I always recommend them. Even if you're doing a simple elopement, it's such a great way to experience each other without the pressure of the ceremony. If you're having guests at your wedding or elopement, it gives you a few minutes of privacy to hug, kiss, tell each other how amazing you look, exchange gifts, or say a few words to each other in private. If you're having a larger wedding, it also gives you an opportunity to take family + wedding party photos ahead of time to free up time after your ceremony.
I'm a huge believer that your wedding day should reflect who you are, as individuals and as a couple. I don't encourage you to follow trends. Whether you're having a wedding or an elopement, I want to be a source of help and inspiration for you to plan a completely offbeat, original, "YOU" wedding day. Stay true to who you are as a couple and your day will be amazing!
Before you start booking vendors and trying to create a timeline, think about how you want your wedding day to FEEL:
Do you want something very private, quiet, and laid back? Do you want to go on an adventure? Have a party with family and friends close to home? Decide what best represents you, your relationship, and your mutual interests. You’ll be able to make decisions much more easily once you can visualize your day unfolding in the perfect way for you.
If you've already put a retainer down and then have to cancel, the retainer is non-refundable. If you're moving to a new date within the same calendar year, your retainer can be transferred subject to my availability and as long as you give 60 days notice. If you need to move to a different calendar year, a new retainer will have to be made in order to hold your new date.
"If it's not fun, it's not worth doing."
Your wedding, your story, your relationship - it's important to me that it's captured intentionally and honestly, and I promise to do that to the best of my abilities. The MOST important thing to me, though, is that you have fun. Life is short and unpredictable, so let's make the most of it and have a blast while celebrating your love story.
