I'm all about couples breaking traditions and doing things their way.
BECAUSE THAT'S HOW
IT REALLY SHOULD BE.
It breaks my heart when I hear couples saying “I wish we had a smaller wedding” or “we wish we would have eloped” or “we actually don’t even like cake” as they’re about to cut their wedding cake. Wanna get married at a museum? Hell yeah. Or maybe go backpacking through the desert for the weekend and exchange vows on the edge of a cliff? Wear a funky wedding dress and a red suit ? Maybe go bar hopping with your friends and family through a foreign country before the big day? Skip out on all the pressures of a wedding and elope with your best friends? Maybe bring your puppy too ? Just sayin'.
Whatever it is that would make your day feel like your own, I’m a full on supporter and am here to help you every step of the way.
I get it, I get it. Finding the perfect photographer is a huge deal!
Fear not - I am here to help. I am sure you've read a couple of things and you should be feeling a little giddy right about now - but you still have a couple of things you're wondering about. So read on and if you still have questions after all this info - shoot me an email!
It turns out it's pretty important we are a good fit for one another. I would much rather you go with another photographer in order for you to get the best possible experience, because the experience you have with your photographer strongly reflects how you feel about the photos later on. I'm not trying to swindle or trick you into booking me. I want us both to be screaming from the rooftops and doing happy dances in our sweats at home about working together, that's what you deserve from a photographer.
it’s worth being captured in a way that will bring back all the feels for generations to come. I want you to be able to look back at these photos for decades and feel the love you feel for each other right now.
+ How long have you been a photographer?
+ How would you describe your style?
+ We don't feel like we are THAT adventurous - would you still be a good fit for us?
+ How many photos do you include?
+ What is your turnaround time ?
+ Do you give out RAW unedited images?
+ What if we need to cancel / reschedule our shoot?
+ What if there's bad weather?
+ How does covering travel expenses work ?
+ Where are you based? Do you ever travel for shoots?

I can not remember a time when I didn't have a camera in my hand. However, I think it started when I was young and traveling with my family - mostly in South Africa and New Zealand. I believe it made me fall in love with the idea of photographs not only capturing the beauty of this world but also the fleeting moments that you want to cherish forever. I started my professional career in college around 2011 and I have had a camera in hand, practicing my craft ever since!
If i had to choose 3 words to describe my style it would be : timeless, adventurous and candid. However, how I shoot is so much more than that! I thrive on that real life connection between people in love and capturing -that- that’s my style. That's why I love couples that are open to new ideas - Let's have your engagement shoot at your favorite burger shack over milkshakes, or a couple sessions in your pjs at home, or your elopement at the top of a glacier or a desert in the Orient.
24 to 48 hours. I know, I know, I am amazing. Truthfully I edit while watching Netflix in the background so it's pretty much a win-win. I also like to edit and deliver your gallery quickly because you get to ride on that excitement high and it makes my heart happy. Plus you get to share it with mom and dad and I know they'll keep asking you for photos until you send them. So the sooner the better! Now - I do have a deadline of 14 days for couple, family and branding sessions / 1 month for weddings and elopements. THAT BEING SAID, 99%,98% of my clients have received their WHOLE gallery within a day or two :)
It depends on the package that is being purchased.
I do guarantee around 75 photos per 1 hour of coverage. But since I give you all your photos it usually ends up being between 90-120.
Nope. A photographer is so SO much more than a camera - lenses or edits. We put so much soul into our work ; if you pick me to capture your day - it's gotta be the whole package!
Two options :
1) Act of god scenario in which case a new date will be set up, agreed upon by both parties.
2) If cancelled by any other reason - I require a 10% additional deposit to reserve a new date.
YES! YES. YES .Um, can I say yes enough!?
I am currently based on the Oahu, HAWAII - I love to travel every chance I get and weddings & elopements are no different! Now - do I travel internationally? Heck yes! Travel is a passion of mine and I would love nothing more than to capture your special day as well as making it an adventure!
THE BEST PART ?I SHIP FOR FREE !
All of my travel expenses are covered in my wedding + elopement packages :)
For inter-island couple sessions, a flat fare travel fee will be added.
Guys - I get it, I would actually not consider myself the most active person, I love to hike but I for sure get tired a lot. So if you feel like an overnight camping trip isn't your jam, it's ok! We can rent a Jeep to get to the mountain top and stay at an AirBnB for the night before to get us ready for a hot air balloon ride the next day. Point is - your day is about what YOU feel like doing. So whether it's a couple of hours hiking or a nice stroll along the ocean, we will make it an adventure !
Don’t even worry about it!! Overcast skies can make for some incredible pictures! If we can find just one porch or covered area we are golden! If it is likely to rain on your wedding day. I will do some extra scouting to make sure you’re covered. Get it?! Covered?! But really, don’t stress - we will get through it together!
We contacted her like 2 days before the shooting. we have no words to tell how responsive and how quick she was. Everything seemed very straightforward and easy with her. She had a lot of shooting ideas and her own style. she knows what she was doing. My husband hates photography sessions normally but she totally knew how to get him into it. Within 24 hours, she delivered us our pictures "exceptionally" for our honeymoon as we were leaving. Without her, we would never had such a wonderful honeymoon memories of Hawaii.
What we liked the most was that she took some time to get to know us at the beginning, started by asking us what we like, and what we don't like etc.
she has also been very flexible on our some special requests. I think, usually she delivers within 15 days. but she did an express version given our situation.
Thank you so Much Béa :)

OMG!!! Bea is the sweetest! She did my engagement photos, which my fiance and I both hate taking pictures! Yet she was able to fully capture our love for one another. She made us feel comfortable and we had SO MUCH fun during our session! I HIGHLY recommend working with this kind spirited individual! Not only will you have beautiful images to last a lifetime you will make a friend while doing it!
