Let’s be honest: planning a wedding can be stressful and making sure you end up with images you actually like has the potential to feel like such a chore.

But the reality is, I’ve been doing this for 12+ years and can show you the ropes so it doesn’t make your head fall off.

all those little moments you were too busy to be afforded the opportunity to notice.

This work lets me observe & document all the details –

Most people who know me know I’ve always been somewhat of an introvert.

I didn’t go to highschool parties or feel comfortable in bars or clubs during college. I liked to experience new things–sure– but not in the way it seemed everyone else did.

I’ve always preferred to be on the outskirts. For me, the best kind of socializing is people watching.

… & the only thing that gave me the free pass to do this without feeling like a creep = holding a camera

I like to think my value comes from how I SEE rather than what I DO.

I don’t just photograph weddings. If you want fun images of your family or coverage of a special event, get in touch through the contact form. This includes engagement parties, bridal & baby showers, rehearsal dinners, vow renewals, anniversaries, birthdays, baptisms, bar/bat mitzvahs, & more.

I’m here for a good time AND a long time.

I waited 4 years to eat at Noma–the best restaurant in the world– in Denmark.

I’m probably watching Law & Order SVU, Love is Blind, or Seinfeld while I edit. I’ll definitely be throwing references at you while we’re working together.

The one with the camera

Hey   I'm Andrea.

Quick problem-solving skills & the ability to shoot in all conditions. So you end up with great photos no matter what.

Adaptability

I'm all about:

I’m here to create images that fulfill your vision. Your belief in my expertise lets that happen.

Humility

I'm all about:

This is an LGBTQ+ safe space. You live your life in whatever way makes you most happy & I’ll be there to document it. Deal?

Belonging

I'm all about:

There is no straightforward answer here. Tips are appreciated and if you feel like you had a positive experience and want to give an extra 'thanks' of some kind, feel free to. But It’s definitely not expected and you wouldn’t be looked down on if you choose not to tip.

Should I tip you and my other wedding vendors?

Yes. I am fully insured.

Do you have insurance?

They’re a great addition to any wedding day. With a second set of eyes, you’ll get more detail shots and a variety of perspectives. You’ll also both be able to have photos of you getting ready.
Plus, real talk—Weddings are long. What if I have to pee?

Is a second photographer really necessary?

Yes! We have the full set up including different backdrops, props, and instant film strips your guests can take with them. Inquire for more info if you’re interested.

Do you offer photo booths?

You must secure your date & venue first in order to book. Weddings require a $1,000 deposit to secure your date so you have extra time to choose which specific wedding package you need. All smaller sessions & events must be paid in advance via electronic invoicing. I also accept checks or full cash payments day-of. 

How do payments work?

Only after you’ve secured your date & venue. That way I can guarantee you a spot on my calendar after you pay your venue deposit because your wedding date is then set in stone.

When should I reach out to hire you?

In case you're thinking...

Sooo...
