Q. How do I secure my wedding date?
A. Send me a message via the contact form and we will get this party started! I'll need to know how many hours of coverage you'd like and any add ons. Then I'll send over a personalized electronic contract that will require an electronic signature. Once I receive the signed contract + retainer payment, we are all set!
Q. How are payments set up?
A. Payments for weddings are set up into two-three easy installments (depending on how soon your wedding is). The first third of your total package is due at the time of booking, which secures your wedding date. The second third is due sometime between booking and your wedding. The final third is due SEVEN days before your wedding! This makes it easier on everyone, and helps you not have to shell out a big chunk of money all at once! For portrait sessions, the full amount is due when you book.
Q. When will I receive my photos?
A. I quote 6-8 weeks for all of my weddings, and 2-3 weeks for portrait shoots, though I aim to get them to you sooner.
Q. Do you travel?
A. YES! Traveling is a huge passion of mine, and when I get to combine it with photographing beautiful love stories, I am the happiest! Check out my bucket list to see some of the places I am dying to shoot at!
Q. Can I get a wedding album?
A. Yes! There are a variety of sizes that you can purchase as an add-on.
Q. How many hours should I hire you for?
A. The most popular collection includes 7-8 hours of coverage, but every wedding is different. I’d love to chat about your personal needs so we can figure out what works best for you!
Q. Should we send you a shot list?
A. Other than a list for family photos, I won't need a shot list. I like to document the day as it happens naturally, and I make it my job to capture every important detail I see.
Q. How do we receive our photos? A. You will receive all of your high-resolution digital images two different ways. You will receive an online gallery, where you can share and download your images. You will also receive a USB drive with your images to keep.
Q. Do you edit all the photos you give us?
A. Yes! Every. Single. One. I want to make sure that every photo you receive is excellent quality.
Q. Will any of our photos be black + white? A. Yes. You will receive a mixture of both black and white and color photos. I will use my artistic discretion to decide which photos will look best black and white. However, the majority of your photos will be in color.
Q. Can we post our photos to social media?
A. Please do! You now share the rights to the images with me and can use them for whatever personal use you'd like. I just ask that you don't crop, edit, or add any filters to them since I have already done all that editing for you. And please give photo credit! :)
Q. What should I wear for our engagement session?
A. I always suggest something comfortable and that fits your personality! Try to color coordinate without “matching” and avoid logos or distracting patterns. Layers and anything flowy is always great! If you need more help, I’m always here to be a fashion consultant for you ;)
Q. If we need you to stay longer, is that an option? A. Yes. Just ask and I can stay longer, but please note that each extra hour is an additional cost, and photos will not be released until the balance is paid!
