I have been shooting professionally since 2015. In Haiti I shot a lot of commercial photography: national ad campaigns, hotel and restaurant development, and photos for the Ministry of Tourism. During that time I was introduced to Wedding PhotographyWeddings. Being bilingual in Haitian Creole helped me to work with all different kinds of couples, American and Haitian. When I moved back to US in 2017, I began focusing solely on Adventure Wedding Photography. FAQ
Adventure sessions with me have two main purposes. First, and most important, we are going to work together to create some beautiful, authentic, and fun photos that you can enjoy for a lifetime. I will help direct you through the session, so you don’t feel nervous about what to do with those hands. Ha! Second, our sessions are meant for us to have the chance to get to know each other better and to get comfortable with each other. As a bonus, I want to take you to locations that are adventurous! Some hiking may be involved in our sessions, but that is all part of the experience!
Absolutely! I create Handmade Genuine Italian Leather Albums customized to your liking. We will work together on these to make something beautiful that will last forever and you will be able to pass on to your children & grandchildren. As for prints, I have a very easy print option in the online gallery. Just click the shopping cart that is on the image and you will be able to print various sizes, canvas, framed, and even customize cards (for save the dates or thank you’s). FAQ
Because my travel schedule & pricing structure is constantly evolving, I generally don’t book weddings & elopements more than 18 months out (with the exception of international destination weddings). I typically book stateside elopements anywhere from 2-12 months out. I like to leave room in my schedule for last minute elopements too, so even if you’re planning to elope in the next few weeks, definitely reach out! I might have a space just for you.
The easy answer is that I will travel as far as I need to get to where you are. Most of my photography sessions are located within the Southern Appalachia’s (TN, NC, VA, SC, GA), but I can go farther. Any wedding beyond 2 hours from my home in East TN will require an overnight stay. So the price of lodging will be included in the wedding package price. FAQ
YES. This is one of the favorite parts of my job. I spend hours exploring hidden places, scouring google maps, and doing research on amazing and secluded spots. In fact, a lot of the couples I work with don’t have a spot picked out yet when they reach out to me. Once you book with me, I am happy to share all the location information I have with you and help you pick a spot that’s perfect for you + your story together. I always encourage my couples to consider a place that might be special to them, as opposed to choosing the most popular or most epic places. FAQ
YES. I am a highly experienced traveler who is constantly planning my own travels to new places and new countries. I use resources like google earth, guidebooks and do a ton of online research to help find a place perfectly suited for your adventurous day. I am also part of a few worldwide networks of wedding vendors, so I can help find other amazing artists like hair & makeup, flowers, officiants, and any other vendors needed. I have helped plan many weddings from afar and I am confident in my abilities to plan an elopement in a new place that’s just as amazing as a place I’ve shot lots of times before. FAQ adventure
I am happy to help plan locations, help with the permit process, and recommend additional vendors. I can come up with timelines for the day and help you figure out logistics, and take care of anything pertaining to photography of course. However, I also think that the work planners do is so valuable and can truly add to the experience. If you’re wanting a few more stylistic elements (arches, installations, picnic, dinner) I would highly recommend bringing on a planner! I have several amazing people I can recommend, many of whom specialize in wild adventurous elopements and weddings in the outdoors. FAQ
