" Josiah is everything we could have hoped for as our wedding photographer. While he is extremely professional, he is also very down to earth. We were comfortable with him behind the camera, and are beyond ecstatic with our photos- both for our engagement and wedding photos. We would recommend him to anyone. It is so important to trust your wedding photographer with such a huge responsibility. Josiah is trustworthy and ready to capture your most important moments with quality resolution and his artistic eye." - Becca + Oliver

What do photography packages include?

All of my standard packages include Complete Wedding Day Coverage, Full-resolution images, Online Viewing & Ordering, All Travel for Wedding in California and Washington.

What is complete wedding day coverage?

Instead of determining packages by the hour, I provide complete wedding day coverage in all packages. I'll arrive before you put on your dress for details, and stay until all of the main events are captured.

Should I have a second shooter on my wedding day?

This is one of the most common questions I get, and it is really up to you! With weddings over 120 guests, it's always great to have a helping hand... this will result in more candids, additional angles during the day, and overall more wedding photos. Don't think you need one? No worries, many couples go without!

What is a complimentary engagement session?

Complimentary engagement sessions last about two hours at a location of your choice. This is a great time to test your hair and makeup before your wedding day, try out a florist you love, and get to know me better as a photographer.

Do you charge travel for engagement sessions?

It's my goal to make the most incredible imagery possible with you. If I can make your engagement session line up with my travel schedule there will be no travel fee. Aspen, CO here we come! Otherwise, we can hop up to Napa, down to Big Sur, or just stay right in the Bay... up to you!

How do I book you as our photographer?

After we determine which package is best for your wedding day, I will send over a contract where you can make your deposit payment online. The process is as seamless as possible.

Can I book photography and videography together?

Yes! I can make custom packages for my couples with photo and video combined to capture all of the moments via photos and a wedding film.
