Frequently asked Questions

This depends on the length of time we have together, the size of the wedding and you! At the very minimum, you will receive 500 photos on a traditional 8 hour wedding day. You will receive any and every photo that I believe best tells the story of your day. You will receive an online gallery, as well as the printing rights to the photos (which allows you to post, print and share with your friends and families.) The gallery will have both web-size (best for online sharing) and high resolution (best for albums & prints) downloads for you to access! There is also a print shop directly linked to your gallery for easy printing and album creation!

How many images will we receive & How will we be able to access them?

Heck yeah! Weddings, Engagements, Honeymoons....whatever! Make a note of your travel requests in your initial contact so we can discuss all the deets when we connect!

Do you travel?

Booking is simple! After completing the contact form, we will work together to create a package that best suits your needs. Next, I'll send you a contract, you sign it and pay a 50% retainer and we're official!

How can we book you?

Upon signing the contract, a 50% retainer is due to reserve the date. Once that is paid, you have options! This is something we can discuss to figure out what the best option is for you! Final payment is required within 30 days before the wedding, but can be paid before!

How does payment work?

Of course! Once I learn a little bit more about you and your venue/style I will choose some galleries that are from your venue (if I have shot there) or weddings with a similar venue, style or time of year. Don't be discouraged if I haven't shot at your venue, I feel confident that we can make magic happen anywhere!

Can we see a full wedding gallery?

I'll be honest, I don't know that I can fit what my work feels like to me in three words, so I didn't. I like to get to know my couples and create sessions and galleries based on each unique story and personality. Again, one size fits all doesn't really work. I did reach out to my client & creative community to see how they would describe my work. So if you're here for some key words, this is what they said!

How would you describe your style?

warm, comfortable, thoughtful, romantic, organic, authentic, effortless, timeless

I can't be in two places at once, so seconds are handy when I'm needed in multiple places at the same time. This ultimately depends on you, your day, and your budget. There's lots of factors that are unique to every wedding so I can't give a generalized answer, let's chat about what best suits you!

Thoughts on a second shooter?

Nope! Why not? Well, the reason you're hiring me is because you trust my shooting and editing process. RAW files are not a final product and are not for sale. Don't worry! I will show you the back of the camera periodically throughout the day so that you can be reassured that you're looking good!

Are we able to purchase or obtain the raw files?

I pride myself on being able to quickly turnaround galleries, despite busy season. Our contract will state that you will receive your full wedding gallery no later than 8 weeks after the event date. Most galleries are returned between 4 -6 weeks, depending on the season and number of weddings. You will receive a preview gallery the night of your wedding so that you have something to hold you over!

When can we expect to see a full gallery?

You may not want one, but I promise you, you need one. Even if you had them done by your friend/cousin/aunt/roommate who is also a photographer. If you're booking me for your wedding, an engagement session is complimentary and is never taken out of the total package price. I FULLY believe that the first time you're in front of my camera should not be on your wedding day. I want you to look at photos and feel 100% like yourself. Having an opportunity to get to know one another and figure out what works best for you guys in front of the camera on a day where there's no pressure and we can take our time is PRICELESS!

What if I don't need an engagement session?

There are no travel fees for weddings and sessions within a 50 mile radius to my office (lol my house.) When you send your contact form, I will let you know if there is a fee for your location. Travel fees for destination weddings or elopements will be customized in your package but typically cover travel, lodging and time. 

What are your travel fees?

YOU'RE NOT ALONE!! Just about 100% of my couples have never had their photo taken before. I got you. I will tell you what to do, when to do it and most importantly, where to put your hands! Remember, I'll show you how bomb you look on the back of the camera so you can relax and enjoy your time!

We've never had professional photos before...
