for your Photographer
Where are you based and do you travel?
I live and operate JLP just outside of the very well known Niagara Falls, Canada! However, being in a new place fuels my creativity and I would be happy to come along where ever your story is about to take you.
How would you describe your style?
My aim when photographing my clients is to be as hands off as possible, allowing me to document something of truth and substance. I want you to look back on your photos and see your true selves and not some trendy pose. Visit my style page to read a more in depth description of how I love to create.
What are your rates
Wedding collections begin at $2,850 and portrait sessions start at $400. Feel free to visit my info page to view my collection details.
Can I choose the images that are selected to be used in creating my gallery?
In short, no. As an artist, I have developed a workflow system and have a list of different criteria that I use to determine what photos I choose to include in your final collection. Each collection contains the best images from our time together. Furthermore, images that highlight natural moments, beautiful compositions and most importantly represents me as an artist.
Do you offer add-ons?
Yes, for sure! I believe in the importance of printing your images and I am happy to offer a variety of prints, albums, announcement cards and more. Following any photo session, you are able to order prints and products through your online gallery.
What exactly is a print release?
A print release is an agreement stating that I have given permission to my client to print images from their collection created by me. Clients are allowed to print at a lab of their choice with no limitations. This release does not give permission to alter the images or share with vendors or publications.
How soon should I book my wedding photographer?
I always recommend booking your wedding photographer as soon as you decide on your wedding date. Due to the nature of weddings, it really is never too soon to secure a photographer you love. Couples are booking on average 8 months up to two years in advance.
How much coverage do we need?
Although every wedding day is unique and this is dependent on your specific timeline, most of my couples reserve my collection that includes ten hours. This amount of coverage allows me to be present for all the precious moments through out your day.
How many weddings have you photographed?
Well over 150 and counting.
When will I receive my photos?
I take great pride in being a wedding photographer and strive to deliver a collection of images that I am proud of. I like to take my time to make sure that every image in your gallery meets my expectations. Your gallery link will be ready and emailed to you within 4-6 weeks after your wedding.
Do you photograph weddings exclusively?
No way! Life after the wedding day awaits so many beautiful milestones that deserve to be celebrated. It is a true honour to continue to document these for my clients.

Where does this session take place?
Engagement sessions can take place at a location of your choice, within the Niagara Region. I always encourage couples to choose a location that means something to them. Maybe a spot you frequently visit on a Sunday afternoon together, a trail you like to hike, or the location where you had your first date.
Do you offer hair and makeup?
My sessions do not include this as an add on service but I am happy to point you in the direction of some incredibly talented hair and makeup artists.
When will I receive my photos?
I strive to create a beautiful collection that I am equally proud and excited to share with you. I like to take my time to make sure that every image in your collection meets my expectations. Your gallery link will be ready and emailed to you within 2 weeks after your session.
LIFESTYLE SESSIONS (Family, Maternity, Newborn, Just Because)
What is a lifestyle session?
Lifestyle sessions are relaxed, fun and highlight real life situations and the art of your everyday! The goal is to tell a story about your life in an artistic manner.
Where do lifestyle sessions take place?
The most popular location is right in the comfort of your own home. Alternatively, these sessions can take place at any beautiful outdoor location of your choice. I always encourage my clients to choose a location of personal significance.
Do you charge a travel fee?
Travel fees may apply for any session booked outside of the Niagara Region. A custom quote will be created based on the desired location of the session.
What is the best time to get a maternity session done?
I usually recommend booking in your maternity session around 30-35 weeks along.
What is the best time to get a newborn session done?
Newborn sessions are reserved within the first two weeks after your baby arrives.
