About Doris

      As an artist and storyteller, it’s my mission to create and deliver vibrantly beautiful imagery to each and every client.

      frequently asked questions
      Do you shoot digital or film?

      I shoot digital, though my formal education began with film, both in 35mm and medium format. On the day of your wedding, we will be prepared with a main professional camera plus a backup camera body in addition to the use of only prime lenses.

      Where are you based?

      Having moved from Seattle, Washington, my home base is now near The Woodlands, Texas, to be close to wonderful friends who are very much family to me.

      What is your background?

      I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with degrees in fine art and business. My work has been published in national and local magazines but at the end of the day, it's creating something joyful is what truly fuels my passion.

      What do you require in order to book your services and secure our wedding date?

      A secured booking of your requested date requires a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer. The retainer is applied to your final balance, which is due 30 days before the wedding date.

      How many photographs will be delivered?

      The amount of final photographs delivered to each client varies, based on the weather, how much portrait time I am given and if the wedding day runs on schedule or is rushed.

      I shoot as much as needed for any given session and then carefully select the best images to edit and upload to your gallery.

      In general, an engagement session averages 50-75 final photographs, and the 8-hour wedding coverage delivers about 500-800 final photographs.

      What about travel and related costs?

      I love the opportunity to help plan your photography coverage, no matter where you choose to travel to have your wedding. Travel costs, such as airline tickets, hotel, car rental, ferry tickets, etc, will be added to the price of the collection if destination is more than 50 miles from The Woodlands, TX.

      In order to scout the area and familiarize myself with the light and scenery, I always plan to arrive at least one day in advance to ensure your vision is flawlessly captured.

      Do you collaborate on projects or editorials?

      Absolutely. Whether it's founded on people, music, or food, I love working together to create works that helps each other grow and bring positivity to our community.
