Pictures: Will be taken with a Canon Rebel T3i & an Iphone 14+ MaxPro as I can get more candid & unique photos using multiple technologies. I assure you that I have been taking lot of education to achieve your best pictures to give you an amazing experience.
If you have any accessories such as props that you want in your pictures please bring them or have them ready we can absolutely use anything you want to make your goals come to life.
Editing: I will use many techniques to edit the pictures we took. I will ask you many questions on the vibe your are wanting, different lightening such as light & bright, cooler or warmer, more natural or high contrast.
For example many women want to make sure that their make up is on point, or that they don't have a double chin or blemishes hidden. I can do that!

I know the feeling of excitement when you want to see the pictures that we just took.
My guarantee is clients will have their first Golden Preview with in 72 hours of photoshoot. This preview will be just that a preview and will include 5 pictures from the shoot. The rest of the photos will be delivered within 2 week of the photoshoot date. You will have full access of pictures without any watermarks on them.
