do you require a down payment to book my date?
I do, as well as a signed contract. Once we get that done, the date is yours and all other inquiries are turned away. For weddings, I don’t book any sessions or weddings the day before or the day after yours because I want to be at 100% for your big day!
***30% of your total package price is Non- refundable and due at the time of booking***
***$125 to reserve your date with the balance due the day of your session
non- refundable? why though?
I promise this is industry standard and I’m not here to steal your money. The retainer is payment for me to not only hold your date, but to also turn all other inquiries for that day away, which means I’m turning away bookings that I could have had other wise.
How many photos can we expect back?
Of course this all depends on the amount of time we spend together, and the size of your wedding, but a good rule of thumb would be to count on about 60-80 images per hour.
A 60-90 minute session on average will produce approximately 100-150 images.
Do you travel?
Heck to the yes! Out of town, out of state, and out of country! Check out this fun Vegas elopement and beautiful intimate wedding along the border of Mexico. ***Travel fees may apply.
how will i receive my files?
Say hello to online galleries! Accessible from any phone, tablet, computer with internet access and available to share with friends and family.
how long before we get our gallery back?
For weddings it’s 8-12 weeks and portrait sessions can take 3-6 weeks. As a busy mama of 2 little boys alongside shooting, editing, and running my own business, I try my very best to get you your images as quickly as I can, but certain times of the year can be busier then others.
Do you have a second shooter?
Great Question! I’ve never shot with a second shooter and have always been comfortable shooting alone. If you would like additional coverage from another photographer, I would be happy to reach out to some wonderful people in the industry and get a quote for you.
Do we have to order prints from you?
Although I highly recommend ordering professional prints directly through your gallery to preserve the color and quality of your images, the answer is nope! Once you receive your gallery, you will also have personal printing rights which means you can download your images and have them printed at your discretion.
***That being said, if you decide to print from a big box chain store (Target, Walmart, Costco, Walgreens, etc) I can almost guarantee your image quality/ colors will be ruined. I would recommend uploading your images to MPIX and ordering from there if you are wanting to do it yourself.
Can I have the raw images?
So sorry, this one is a No.
I’m stressed out because wedding planning is hard and all I want to do is eat potato chips and take a nap. Can you help me through the process?
The answer to this is SIMPLE. ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY. When you add me to your team, you are getting a sister/ mother/ best friend/ helping hand kinda person. I have relationships with wonderful vendors, an idea of putting together a timeline of the day, advice on lighting and locations, but most of all I have experience. I’ve only been a guest to a handful of weddings, but the other 50 I was behind the scenes running around to help make sure your day is as perfect as possible. I usually take a 20 minute break to eat as fast as I can (I swear, I feel I look like a t-rex devouring it’s last meal in a dark corner), but other then that I’m documenting, helping, and laughing and crying behind the camera.
My portrait session is coming up, what do i wear?!
Oh my gosh, please ask if you are struggling here! I have lots of tips and resources that can help ease the burden of colors, textures, patterns, and such. I’m your friend, please don’t be shy 🙂
