So whether you've planned every little detail down to a T or you need some help putting it all together, we've got your back. We offer as-needed consultations and guidance to bounce ideas off from the when and where to the how.

Our goal is to make sure your day goes off perfectly, while leaving room for those intimate, emotional moments to keep everything balanced and exceptional.

In effort to encourage those raw, authentic and un-prompted emotions and experience, we keep ourselves distanced and hands-off until after the "yes" and wave of following emotions between the two of you. Due to this, we only offer 2 collections that don't have a specific time limit. You have enough to worry about, being on the dot time shouldn't be one of them.

Through photography, we keep our documentary style natural and candid as your moment progresses. Afterward, we'll have time for posed, prompted and organically fun session.

Where will you be during our proposal?

Being in a tourist destination I have the best benefit on my side - very few people find a girl with a camera out of place.
Depending on the location, I will bring someone with me so I can take photos of them while watching you until you're ready.

Exactly how long is our session?

I don't time proposals, and I do this for a few reasons.
1. I want you to take your time, relish and live in the moment and be totally, 100% comfortable. If we plan for you to propose at 6pm and it doesn't happen until 6:12, we'll deal. This is about you two... and I don't want that rushed.

2. The portrait session afterwards, usually we do 20-30 minutes of shooting. However, again this is a big moment that I want the two of you to live in, enjoy and take the time to feel all of those magical, in love feelings.
I usually stay back and wait a few minutes to give you time to absorb, love and share the intimate setting together.
(Also, if someone was in my face with a camera immediately after while I'm shocked and crocodile crying - nobody wants that.)
