What kind of camera do you use?

We use only professional gear and memory cards. Cameras are tools we utilize the most, but not necessarily rely on it alone to create beautiful images on their own.

Shooting in beautiful natural light all day is a photographer's dream, but Mother Nature has her own timeline. We do use flashes when necessary in order to create beautiful images.

This happens usually during the wedding consultation, with a signed agreement and a 50% deposit/retainer fee.
