I’m sure you have a lot of questions by now - but don’t worry - I’ve got answers!!
How far in advance should we book you?! I recommend as soon as possible!! Portrait sessions are typically booked a couple months prior, but weddings and elopements are typically booked anywhere from a couple of months to 18 months in advance. I tend to book up about 9-12 months prior, so I recommend reserving your date right when you know!
Can we meet in person before moving forward? I’m happy to chat on the phone or do a FaceTime call, but due to the high amount of inquiries I get each week, I am not able to meet couples PRIOR to booking. Butttt once your dates all set we’ll definitely meet for drinks/coffee a few times before your wedding!! TBH by the time your wedding comes along you’ll probably have met my husband, know my dogs, and have been to my house LOL.
Where should we go for our elopement or engagement session?? Location planning is included in my packages! Basically you book a date, I’ll start spilling the beans about all my favorite secret spots and we’ll decide together on an epic place that feels like you!
Can we see a full wedding gallery? Yes of course!! I want you to!! Once you inquire, I’ll send over a few full galleries for you to check out to get an idea of what a full day looks like, all different light situations, etc.
How are our photos delivered? You’ll get a link to an online gallery with all of your digitals! From there you can download, share, etc!
How long until we get to see our photos?! Weddings are usually turned around in 6-8 weeks, and portrait sessions about 2-3 weeks.
How many photos do you deliver? This can vary since every wedding is soooo different, but I do not put a cap on it! I deliver all photos that I love and that are not duplicates, blinking, unflattering, etc. Industry standard is about 50-100 per hour, but a typical wedding is anywhere from 600-1000+ photos delivered. Engagement and portrait sessions range anywhere from 60-100+.
How do you back up your photos? I am a little crazy about this!! Initially, I back my images up to two different memory cards while shooting. From there, all images go onto my computer, three external hardrives, AND a cloud. Your images are pretty safe with me. ;)
Do you deliver RAW images? NO! My clients hire me for my specific editing style and trust my style and judgement. Just like a restaurant wouldn’t give you a half cooked meal, I don’t deliver unfinished photos.
Are you packages customizable? Yes!! I have a starting price, but from there will build you a custom package based on what YOU need.
K cool, we want to book you, now what?? This part is easy!! Contact me through my booking form, I’ll send over my pricing and once you pick the package you want, I’ll send over a contract to get your autographs, and then you’re all set!! I keep payment easy and do just $1000 down to hold the date and the rest one month prior.
