The only magic I still believe in is love!

Let's get some magic started!

I am in the business of building clients better relationship with themselves by way of self empowerment and self love with their own Luxury Photography Experience.

I am a mom, a wife and a friend to many. I am also an autism mama and I couldn't love it more as my son helps to bring more passion into this world! 
I too struggled many many years with self esteem issues, guilt and after effects of abuse. No one should live a single day in this world without loving themselves fully and without truly appreciating the amazing soul that they are!

So.. this is why I have now dedicated my life to empowering and inspiring clients just like you to take back ownership of their persona and this life! Empowering experiences with photography can really change someone's life.

You are a total Rockstar and you deserve that life changing experience. See yourself in a new light and allow the chance to fall deeper in love with yourself again!

Love notes from our clients

"WHAT CAN I SAY? SHE'S AMAZING. DON'T WHAT WHAT THE HECK YOU'RE DOING WHEN IT COMES TO POSING? SHES GOT YOU! THINK YOU'RE NOT PHOTOGENIC? SHE'LL MAKE YOU PHOTOGENIC! THE WOMAN KNOWS WHAT BRIDES ARE AFRAID OF AND WHAT THEY WANT AND KNOWS WHAT'S FLATTERING AND WHATS UNFLATTERING. NOT TO MENTION A SUPER FUN GAL! SHE WAS JOKING AND LAUGHING WITH US THE ENTIRE TIME. TIMELY RESPONSES. PROFESSIONAL, AND CAN READ A ROOM. BOTTOM LINE, HIRE SANDY PRINTS PHOTOGRAPHY. YOU WONT BE SORRY. :)"

FAQS

I'm worried about my venue being dark. will the photos turn out okay?

You are not alone in this worry! Many and probably most churches really lack in the nice lighting department! I use professional quality gear that is able to capture in low light settings like a church. I do the absolute best I can given the circumstances of the setting. Most of my work is on the light and airy side but for dark ceremonies, I do try and find a middle ground between keeping professional grain quality and brightness of the images to maintain quality or work for myself and client.

How many images do we recieve? and what is the typical turn around time?

Every wedding is different and every client has a different idea of what is important to have captured. We cannot give an exact number because of this but we do try and maintain a range of 50-100 images per hour. But do note, if you have an hour or 2 of downtime during your day, less images will be captured during that time frame and thus affect the total. Your images will be sorted and undesirable images will be excluded as we create your final gallery.
Turn around time is typically 4-6 weeks and during peak wedding season it can be 6-8 weeks. We have never delivered a wedding past 8 weeks and communication is always maintained with the client about updates.

Do you have backup equipment in case of equipment failure?

We absolutely do! For larger events, it is typical to see myself or colleagues shooting with dual cameras. This has many benefits but one of those is also about file handing. For many of our events where both cameras are not needed, our spare is kept tucked away as a back up in the event of an emergency. If equipment failure were to happen, our goal is to quick switch out cameras with little to no disturbance of the capturing of the event.

Will we have download and print rights to our images?

This is a very important question to cover! All of our wedding packages include one of our luxury albums and in addition, a digital gallery is also delivered to the client with the entire downloadable gallery. We do use a platform that is tied to our print lab to make ordering prints and products more convenient. It is not a requirement to use out labs if not desired. Your images will include a print release for images 8x12 and smaller. Due to our choice of maintaining our quality of work in larger prints, we do require that ordering prints larger than 8x12 is done though us. It is our passion to make sure your beautiful artwork is held to the upmost quality.
