We understand the importance of documenting your wedding to tell your story. When you revisit these images years down the line, we want to you vividly remember the sound of your best friend's laughter to the warmth of your father's embrace.

Our photojournalistic approach provides a calm and unobtrusive energy during your wedding day. You should be fully present in your celebration and share these moments with your friends and family. We aim to provide vibrant, artistic, and thoughtful photography coverage of the moments that make this day memorable - in short, photography that makes memories last forever.

Photographs are meant to be displayed, so we will design your favorite images into framed art for your home.

We’ll begin with conversation and connection. Once you have decided that my style fits your vision, send us a message. Share your wedding ideas and we’ll listen and make a plan for how you want to remember your day. This will give us the opportunity to get to know each other better.

In the weeks prior to your wedding, we'll plan a detailed timeline and make a list of trusted vendors who will make your wedding come to life. This will ensure that we are on the same page and that your wedding day is as stress-free as possible. Let's get this party started!

The result… A memorable experience and unforgettable images that tell your love story.

Frequently Asked Questions

My photography style is artistic, vibrant and photojournalistic, meaning that I focus on capturing candid moments throughout the day as they unfold. I also incorporate some traditional elements to provide a balanced collection of images of your wedding day.

What is your photography style?

I believe in capturing genuine moments, not a specific quantity. The number of photos you'll receive will depend on the length of coverage and the flow of your wedding day. On average, you can expect to receive 45-60 photos per hour of wedding day photography coverage.

How many photos will we receive?

Every image is professionally edited and retouched to ensure that you look your best and that your wedding day is captured vibrantly. My standard turnaround time for wedding photos is 6-8 weeks.

How long will it take to receive our finished wedding photos?

Do you offer engagement sessions?

Yes, I do offer engagement sessions as part of my wedding packages. It's a great way for us to get to know each other and for you to get comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day.

What if our plans change?

Do you have liability insurance?

If your plans change, your deposit can be transferred to another date. Please contact me as soon as you know that you need to reschedule your wedding.

Of course! Starscape Studios has general liability insurance for each event in case of any accidents or damages during the wedding day.

Do you offer prints and albums?

Yes, I offer prints and albums as part of my wedding packages. Photographs are meant to be displayed, not sitting in a hard drive. Starscape Studios works with a professional printing lab to ensure that your prints and albums are of the highest quality and can be enjoyed for years to come.

Can we see a full wedding gallery?

Absolutely! Below are some full wedding galleries so you can get a better idea of my style and how I approach capturing a wedding day from start to finish.
