I want your photos to feel like 'you.'
The wedding stories I photograph are all over the map; from simple DIY parties, to crazy-tipsy celebrations with elaborate details. However you approach your big day, I'm ready to jump in and have fun with you!
I am typically a documentary shooter; simply capturing your day as it unfolds. When it comes time to 'pose' you, expect clear posing directions and a good laugh to create stunning portraits that reflect your love and individual personalities.

WHAT MAKES CADENZA DIFFERENT?
One of the biggest perks Cadenza wedding clients receive is unlimited wedding day coverage. After shooting many weddings, I’ve realized that it’s impossible to predict how much time is needed because weddings are not predictable or controlled events. Wedding photos are the one investment you will have forever and my job is to capture it in its entirety. Aside from that, you will notice that my style of photography is very candid, bold and filled with emotion/movement. I live for fun reception photos and having a ton of fun with my clients. I like vibrant colors with skin tones that are true to life, as well as poses that don’t look stiff or awkward. I will most definitely help with posing when we shoot formal portraits, but for the most part, I will be silently documenting and observing your day as it unfolds.
DOES UNLIMITED COVERAGE MEAN YOU’LL BE AT MY WEDDING FOR 16 HOURS?!!
As a general rule, ‘unlimited coverage’ does cut off after 12 hours. I’m still a human and photographing a wedding is very challenging both physically and mentally. With that said, if we determine that your wedding needs more than 12 hours we will discuss that!
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE?
This depends on many factors, but in general, an average wedding receives 600-900 images. Trust me, it’s more images than you will ever know what to do with!
WILL YOU HELP WITH POSING? WE ARE AWKWARD!
Yes! I will definitely help guide you with posing. I don’t expect you to know what to do, so please don’t worry!
WHAT IS YOUR RAIN GUARANTEE?
As a photographer, I am 100% prepared to shoot indoors in case of extreme weather, however I know this can be a bummer for couples wanting outdoor photographs. If we are unable to photograph outside, you are invited to re-wear your wedding attire on a different date, and I will provide you with a 1 hour session completely free.
DO I REALLY NEED A WEDDING ALBUM OR WALL ART?
Please, please, PLEASE hear me out on this! I cannot tell you how many times I talk to couples months or even years after their wedding to find out that they haven’t printed a single image or have only printed a few. Receiving your digital images and sharing them on social media is NOT how your photography experience should end. You will invest a lot of money and time into your wedding and your photos need somewhere to live besides your computer. A wedding album not only tells a cohesive story of your day, but is also a lot more romantic and special than opening up a folder on your computer. Every couple who has had a Cadenza Book designed has been over the moon!
WHAT IS A BRIDAL PORTRAIT SESSION?
This is a separate session featuring just the bride in her dress, usually a couple of months before the wedding (some people do them after too). This session is held either inside or outside and is generally done the same day the bride has her hair and makeup trial-runs. It’s a perfect opportunity for the bride to receive the most stunning images possible, without being under time constraints of the wedding day. Of course we will do bridal portraits on the wedding day too, this is just a bit more relaxed/controlled and is a great excuse to play dress up! These images are not released until after the wedding day of course.
HOW DOES THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION WORK?
The engagement session is a 40-50 minute session at a QC (or vicinity) location. This location can either be picked by me or you and is usually enough time for up to two outfits.
WHO IS YOUR SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER AND WHAT IS THEIR ROLE?
My second photographer could be one of many local photographers that I know and trust. You will NOT get someone inexperienced. The second’s role is shooting candid moments, alternate angles, helping me with lighting, assisting during family portraits, and sometimes documenting the other party getting ready if we need to split up.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU GET REALLY, REALLY SICK OR SOMETHING HAPPENS AND YOU CAN’T SHOOT OUR WEDDING?
No one wants to ever talk about this, but stuff happens. I’ve been shooting weddings for almost 7 years and have never missed a wedding *knock on ALL the wood* - However, in the extreme case that I could not shoot your wedding, I’d use my husband as my main backup and I literally run the local group specifically for wedding photographer emergencies.
OK, SO WHY SHOULD WE BOOK?
I offer a unique style and fun approach to weddings that my clients love. My usual clients are fun, laid back and want their weddings documented without time constraints. At the end of the day, you have to do what’s right for you. With that said, I hope you consider the fact that your wedding photos are literally the one investment you have forever. You only get one shot to get the best photographs possible.
