How much do you charge? Click on the 'get in touch tab' to see my pricing for general sessions. For wedding inquiries you can see where my pricing starts. Fill out the form and I will send you a detailed pricing guide.
What should I wear? I honestly love both a casual and a more dressy vibe. I always suggest that my clients bring both options to a shoot. For the dressier outfits, I love when the ladies where long flowy dresses that have movement! I love when my clients send me pictures and ask for my advice on outfit choices! After booking me I will send you a session guide that will hopefully help with your decision making.
Do you offer an engagement session with any of your wedding packages? Engagement sessions are usually where I really get to know my couple and where they get to know me. I feel that it is so important on the wedding day to have had that time to get know each other before hand. I feel it makes the bride and groom so much more relaxed in front of my camera on their special day. With that being said, an engagement session is included in all of my traditional wedding packages, and as an add-on option with the the other packages!
How do I prepare for my engagement shoot? After booking with me I will send you an engagement session guide that will tell you how to prepare for your shoot and what to expect!
What can I expect between now and my wedding day if I book with you? After choosing your package, signing the contract, and paying the deposit, we will discuss when and where you would like to take your engagement photos and get that on the calendar. As your wedding day gets closer, I will get with you and help you to create a timeline for your wedding day to help everything go smoother on your special day!
How do you describe your wedding shooting style? I lean more towards a documentary approach of shooting. I love getting all the real moments of your day. In between shooting details, bride and groom getting ready, ceremony, and reception, I will be capturing people as they help set up things for your wedding, the guests, all the little in betweens that sometimes go unnoticed, but are oh so special. My editing style is bright with a hint of mood and warm skin tones.
Do you have any tips to help me prepare for my wedding day? Here is a blog post that has some great tips on how to make your wedding day as seamless as possible. Check it out here. I am also working on a wedding guide that will hopefully be finished soon!
Do you need a shot list? The only shot list I ask for are family members that you would like in photos, so that someone doesn't get accidentally over looked. Other than that, I do not like to use one. I like to shoot the day as it unfolds, and how I see it. I love shooting the in-between moments, that might be missed if I am constantly looking at a shot list.
How long after the session will I receive my pictures? You will receive a sneak peek from your session/wedding within 72 hours. My turn around time for general sessions is 3-4 weeks. My turn around time for weddings is 8-10 weeks.
How will I receive my pictures? I will deliver your images via an online gallery that you will be able to download directly to your computer! You are able to print directly from your gallery, or if you prefer to print somewhere else, I recommend mpix! I strongly discourage you from printing through places like walmart, walgreens, shutterfly, etc. as the quality is not very good! Trust me on this. :)
Do you travel for weddings? YES! I love getting to experience new places! I offer special rates if your wedding is held somewhere on my bucket list. Be sure to check it out!
Do you take newborn photos? I do not offer studio newborn pictures. I take fresh 48 photos (photos taken at the hospital within 48 hours of birth), and in-home lifestyle newborn photos (taken within two weeks of baby's arrival).
