Hey! Welcome!

I know you guys have a LOT of burning questions. So here's a space I created to answer some of the most commonly asked questions. If you have a question but don't see it on the list, shoot me an email! Ask me anything!

I'm an open book!



On average, couples typically invest anywhere from $3,000 - $8,000 USD for wedding photography.

I use the word “Invest” intentionally.

These are priceless heirlooms that capture a very unique, very important moment in your lives and it’s something that you want to last.

Photos with family members from far and wide, last memories, new memories and special moments together are a few of the things photographers work very hard to capture. It’s worth the investment, I promise.



Were you named after Aspen, Colorado or an Aspen Tree?

Neither actually! My parents didn't know what to name me when I was born. My dad called 411 to order Take-Out and the operator's screen name (her fake name) was Aspen! He liked it, told my mom and boom. I was named. So, no. Unfortunately, I have no connection to either the tree or the city.

where are you actually located?

I'm based in Seattle, Washington!

I grew up in Northern California & spent a ton of time photographing weddings all over California (from Joshua Tree & Palm Springs to Bodega Bay & Yosemite).

I consider myself a West Coast wedding photographer & I travel often.

I want it all!

what else should we know about you?

I love camping & campfire smells. If you're having an adventurous wedding please let me know because I'd love to be right there with you!

I also have major love for modernism and minimalism and all things urban that scream Downtown Los Angeles Grunge. Frickin’ love it.

It’s a honor to do what I do.

I know I'm so blessed to be able to do what I do. You guys are the most important thing to me throughout your whole day. I want to make sure you get to spend time together and just soak everything in. This is such a special time and I'm honored that you would invite me to be by your side. I'd love to support you and encourage you and talk with you and be friends with you from start to finish.



Process & Planning

Can we have the raw (unedited) images?

I do not deliver RAW files or unedited images to my clients. One of the reasons you hired me is for my style and post-production work. Trust me to provide the best of the best of your wedding photos!

How many photos do we actually get?

ALL OF THEM. In your online gallery you'll receive all of the best images from the day. I don't edit or deliver the blurry, out-of-focus, blinking, people-eating, or unflattering photos. My style is comprised of  lifestyle & photo-journalistic elements so you'll get lots of action shots & candids, but only the best! This typically yields anywhere from 400-800 images depending on how long I'm with you through the day.

I usually deliver 50-70 images per hour.

can we print our photos? share them online?

HECK YES! All packages include a printing rights release! I want you to be able to enjoy and share your photos!

how do we get our images?

I deliver all sessions through an online, digital gallery. When the photos are ready, you'll receive a link that will take you to the gallery where you can download your photos! That being said, PLEASE! Make sure you actually download your photos, don't screenshot them. I pour hours into editing each photo and I want to make sure you get the best quality. So please download & back up your photos! You receive all of your photos! So no picking & choosing proofs or only a certain number of images.

when will we get our images?

Up to 90 business days, 8-12 weeks usually. This definitely depends on whether your wedding is in high season (summer & fall) or low season (winter). If you've got more questions about this, let me know! Off-Season weddings & sessions usually deliver more quickly.

do we need a 2nd shooter? should we have one?

Second shooters are wonderful people. I was one for a long time and absolutely love having them!

That being said, every wedding is different. For elopements & intimate weddings, they're pretty easy for me to capture on my own. These are extremely intimate gatherings and sometimes having two photographers can feel like paparazzi. For large weddings (more than 150 guests) I 110% recommend having a second. Their purpose is to help me capture every element of the day from a different perspective and since we can be at two different places, it helps me focus more in the moment.  If the guys and girls are getting ready at completely separate, drive-to-get-there locations having a 2nd will allow me to stay in one place for longer and to capture more.

what is a 2nd shooter?

A second shooter is another photographer, my other half on your wedding day! I have a list of 2nd shooters I trust; they're extremely capable & talented artists, are easy-going and are some of the most helpful people around. They're my eyes, ears, hands & cameras in another spot! I specifically select a 2nd based on their personality, skills & abilities to ensure that you have everything you need on your wedding day.

What other types of photography do you offer?

Great question! I offer Lifestyle sessions. Basically anything that has to do with you being in a comfortable, familiar space where I’m focused on capturing you. This can include Maternity, Newborn, & Senior sessions. These are not your typical sessions. Again, I focus a lot more on who you are as a couple, a mother, a family, a father, an individual or a person graduating (from college or high school).

we like you! what now?

Email me! Slide into my DMs! Contact me! Say hey!

Let's chat!

But please, hold off from sending me a text message. Email is way better.





Honestly, I'll go just about anywhere! I love traveling, exploring & experiencing new places! Most of my sessions are considered destination sessions, and I'm no stranger to travel. TSA Pre-Check is a life saver.
