INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Negatives, Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
ABSOLUTELY! I (including all my associate photographers) use pro lenses as part of our gear lineup, which means we can shoot in bright daylight or even in the darkest of ballrooms without the use of additional light or flash. We also have professional lighting equipment that we use for when the time calls for it.
How many photographers do you work with?
I work with 2 other trusted, professional photographers. If your investment package includes an associate photographer, you can be sure that my associates are professional. My associate photographers also have the same shooting style as me so your images will look flawless.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, I will be your main photographer.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No. That's more than I can handle. I prefer to shoot only 1 wedding a week. Your wedding. This ensures that I have plenty of time to focus on your wedding day and provide you with the best service possible. Truth is, after a day of shooting, I'm so exhausted the next day that I'd rather veg out on the couch with my future hubby and puppy and just relax. If a couple inquires about a weekend when I'm already booked for your wedding, then (sadly) I tell them I'm already booked.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Let's hope this NEVER happens. I can only imagine in life/death situations that this could ever occur. However, if there was a zombie apocalypse and you still wanted to get married, then YES I have a few replacement photographers with the same professionalism and shooting style that may be available.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
This is RULE #1 for wedding photographers. I carry 2 camera bodies with me at all times. I also require that my associate photographers carry 2 camera bodies as well. You get at least 4 cameras that are ready for shooting.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Because I LOVE posting teasers on Facebook, you'll probably see a handful of images pop up on the blog around a week or two after your wedding. Officially, proofs are delivered within 6-8 weeks and are viewed in a secured online gallery.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
New in 2013, all my clients get the high-resolution images as part of their investment package. Forget the proofs. This is your wedding and you deserve to have all the images.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes. However, my contracts offer a release for personal use only. If you'd like to use your images for business purposes or for publishing, then we can discuss the details.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, we provide the high resolution digital images.
Will images be available for viewing online?
All clients will have access to a secured online gallery of their images, which they can share with their family and friends.

Aileen was incredible to work with, very easy going and generally quite professional. From our first meeting we knew it would be a perfect working relationship and it absolutely was. She was always on time and ready to work. There is no question that she has amazing attention to detail and a true photographers eye. Our engagement photos were beautiful and touching, and what we have already seen of our wedding photos they are nothing short of spectacular. Well worth the investment value and would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know for all events.

Wow, where to even begin? I feel like I could write an entire novel about my experience with Aileen.

Photography was a challenge for me. I felt it was one of the MOST important vendors as photos are one of the few things that last beyond the day.

Aileen went above and beyond with every single aspect of her job. She corresponded with me frequently answering questions, giving ideas, advice, etc regarding anything I needed. She was patient when my hair and makeup trial made me over 20 minutes late for our engagement shoot and still spent longer with us than the contract stated! She wrote a heartfelt recap of the day on her blog and sent links to an online album with pictures edited and organized in a timely manner, much more quickly than stated in contract. The pictures themselves are jaw dropping and expertly done.

On the day of the actual wedding, she actually brought TWO second shooters instead of the contractually agreed upon one! She was prompt, active, and never missed a beat. Her style is very photo-journalistic and focused on candid "moment capturing" as opposed to cheesy, stiff posed images. Her "eye" can only be described as shocking. She can turn literally any setting into a breathtaking composition of stunning photography. Her photobooth was TOP notch. Big enough to fit 8+ people in one shot, flat screen slideshow displaying images on site, and perfect HD pics.

The final amazement came when our DVD of images was delivered. She had a custom made jacket depicting some the best shots and wrote a lovely note. She's truly a kind person, put up with multiple reschedules on my part, and is seriously the most talented photographer I have worked with to date. I actually have scheduled an additional bridal portrait shoot because I love her work so much!

I booked Aileen for my wedding after I saw my friend's wedding pictures. My husband and I really liked Aileen's style from what we had seen at the time. Aileen did an amazing job with our engagement and wedding pictures. She really has a great eye for detail and captured many candid shots and genuine moments through out the day. Our formal shots were absolutely gorgeous. The day of the wedding went by so fast that there were many details such as the set up of my escort cards, center pieces, etc. that I really didn't get to see right there and then. However, after receiving my wedding proofs, Aileen was able to capture all those little details for me to see which was a great surprise. She is very easy going and open to all ideas you have. My family also complemented on how awesome and on top of things she was at the wedding. If you are looking for someone to capture those beautiful details and moments, Aileen is definitely one of the best.

I've know Aileen since our days at Pepperdine University. We've kept in touch, but it was only recently that we finally got to see eachother after all these years! My husband and I are expecting our first child, and I've always loved seeing Aileen's photos, so I decided to contact her and asked if she did maternity shoots! Thank goodness she did because our maternity shoot turned out beautiful and everything I envisioned came true!!! The lighting, setting, props... everything was perfect! Not only is she amazing, but she is flexible and returns your emails/calls very fast! I like that! I will now be using Aileen for future photo shoots, and I highly recommend her! Can't wait 'till our baby is born so we can take more beautiful photos! :)

Aileen has a talent for capturing the details in an extraordinary way! We hired her for our small wedding on the beach and barely knew she was there taking pictures. She was quiet and professional. When we saw the photos she captured we were in awe!! She caught some amazing moments at beautifully artistic angles. This woman is a true talent in the art of photography. She has found her calling, and my husband and I couldn't be happier that we found her to capture our special day. Our wedding photos are truly a work of art. Thank you, Aileen!!!

Words cannot describe just how amazing Aileen is. I met her through a mutual friend and came across her website, and going through her portfolio made me 100% convinced that I wanted her to do my wedding photography whenever that day came around. On the day of the event, Aileen and her staff were on top of things and were able to capture the evening in a way that wasn't cheesy or too "wedding like".

If you are looking for a photographer who takes pictures that are more artistic and who above all is so sweet and wonderful, Aileen is definitely your girl!! I can't wait to work with her again on another event!

Words cannot explain how wonderful it has been to work with Aileen. She isn't pushy and she doesn't take typical "cheesy" photos. Which I'm not a fan of at all, it's what caught our eye to begin with. She finds the most wonderful, artistic shots! She really finds the beauty in photography, she's truly an artist! We can't wait to work with her again in the future! (I would rate her more than a 5.0, seriously!)

Aileen was a pleasure to work with for both my engagement and wedding photos. The photos turned out better then I expected. The photos taken were in a class of their own. Aileen is more of a modern artist and with her creative shots she is able to capture every special moment in the most beautiful way. My wife and I were looking for photographers and we did not want the normal boring photos of our wedding, we wanted spectacular photos that captured the special moments perfectly, Aileen was able to deliver that to us. Aileen has the perfect sense of creativity required to take beautiful photos. Aileen also allows you as a customer to put in your ideas for the photos and she just makes them better. Aileen does not take cheesy posed photos>
I will be returning to her again once my wife and I start a family.

After months of scouting out photographers for our beach wedding in June, we stumbled across Aileen’s website. The images in her portfolio immediately struck us as fresh and sincere. Booking vendors from out of state is fairly challenging (we live in Las Vegas and our wedding was in Long Beach), but when we got to meet and greet with Aileen, we knew we would be in good hands.

On the day of our wedding, Aileen and her staff were right on the ball. Not only were they professionals, they were able to keep us on track with our timeline, and made my husband and I feel like rock stars.

The photographs turned out amazing. Aileen’s gift for capturing all the tenderness and joy throughout the whole day have made our memories that much more vivid.

Definitely check out her gallery!

We had a really incredible engagement beach photo shoot with Aileen, she did wonders with her style and creativity. Fortunately through this site and the review of others, we were lucky to find someone who could beautifully capture all the elements of the different landscapes and the romance between us, giving us perfectly dreamy photos. She was very sweet and reliable and highly recommend her because she is extraordinarily talented and fun to work with. She made the whole experience very fun, easy, and comfortable!
