Here are the most frequently asked questions, read through them and let me know if you have any others. I don't bite, I promise!
I’ve been doing photography since 2009, I found my true passion for couples photography in 2016!
Absolutely! I am as involved in the planning as you would like! Fun fact - before diving into wedding photography I worked as a wedding planner for a high-end catering and events firm, so I have planned my fair share of weddings. I am your go-to person for design questions, china patterns, vendor recommendations, and more! If you’d rather I just stick to awesome photos that’s fine too!
I could go on for hours about this but I don’t want to bore you with the behind the scenes details. In short - think about how you want to feel on your wedding day. Now think about how you want that captured. Ask yourself to define the three most important aspects of your wedding (besides your love) and let that determine your budget. Your wedding photos are the one tangible thing you have to look back on forever, everything else from your wedding day is fleeting, make sure you consider that when researching photographer.
I LOVE to travel! Anytime I have the chance to do so I jump at it. I want to make traveling for your wedding as easy as possible. Stateside destination collections have one flat investment and I handle the rest. Meaning you don’t have to worry about booking me a hotel, a flight, or stressing how to get me to the venue - I take care of that all so you don’t have to add another stress to your list! International weddings have custom pricing, so just shoot me a message about those and I can get you a detailed quote!
I say embrace it! Making out in the rain makes for awesome photos. Most of the time the elements make for a gorgeous image, so I suggest we roll with it. If the weather is bad enough that it puts us in danger or threatens to ruin my gear we will work on a reschedule!
I GOTCHUUU. I have a handy dandy guide created specifically to help you! Once you’ve booked with me I will send that bad boy right over.
Yes! I don’t include duplicates, blurry images, or unflattering mid-wedgie photos. I send you the best of the best and I promise to give you more than enough images so you can remember exactly what happened.
Elopement galleries average 300-400 images.
Wedding galleries average 600-900 images.
Couples galleries average 50-100 images.
Couples sessions take 4-6 weeks for delivery. Weddings and elopements take 8-10 weeks. I do my best to get them back to you quickly while also making sure each image gets the time and attention it deserves.
RAW, aka unedited photos, will not be delivered under any circumstances. Unedited images are only half of the process, the other half of the beauty lies within the editing process. You are hiring me because you trust in my creative process, shooting style, and editing style! I promise to deliver the best images that tell your story!
Nope. I fully believe in capturing your authentic selves and flaunting what you’ve got! If you have a blemish on your face or a bruise on your leg, something temporary, I will touch those up. I want to showcase the real stuff, the messy, and imperfect, those are the things you’ll want to remember years from now!
All images are delivered via an online gallery which stays live for three months. It is your responsibility to download the entire album and store them in a safe place. (I highly recommend saving a copy on a flash drive or external hard drive) After the image gallery has expired there is a $50 replacement charge for additional downloads.
Weddings require a $1,000 non-refundable retainer and a signed contract, the remaining balance is due 30 days before the wedding. Elopements and couples sessions require a 50% non-refundable retainer and a signed contract, the remaining balance is due 14 days before.
