FAQ

Q: WHAT IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO BOOK YOU AS OUR PHOTOGRAPHER?

A: A SIGNED CONTRACT AS WELL AS A 25% RETAINER.

Q: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

A: JOURNALISTIC, RAW, AUTHENTIC. I’M ALL ABOUT THE QUIET AND UNPLANNED MOMENTS. DON’T WORRY, NO CHEESY WEDDING PHOTOS HERE!

Q: WHAT ARE YOUR TRAVEL FEES?

A: FOR OUT OF STATE OR DESTINATION WEDDINGS, I TYPICALLY REQUIRE A ROUND TRIP FLIGHT + 2 NIGHTS OF ACCOMMODATION (NIGHT BEFORE THE WEDDING AND NIGHT OF).

Q: CAN WE SEE A FULL WEDDING GALLERY?

A: ABSOLUTELY. I WILL ALWAYS SEND A FEW RECENT ALBUMS TO GIVE YOU A SENSE OF WHAT MY PROCESS ON A WEDDING DAY IS LIKE, AND WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT AS A FINAL PRODUCT.

Q: HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE?

A: 500+ FOR A 10 HOUR WEDDING DAY. I DON’T LIMIT THE NUMBER OF IMAGES THAT I EDIT OR DELIVER, SO YOU’LL RECEIVE EVERY SINGLE IMAGE WORTHY OF YOU HAVING, NO MATTER HOW SMALL THE MOMENT, IN YOUR FULL GALLERY.

Q: CAN YOU RECOMMEND OTHER WEDDING VENDORS?

A: OMG YES. I’VE WORKED WITH SOME FANTASTIC FLORISTS, HAIR + MAKEUP ARTISTS, DJS, PLANNERS ETC. OVER THE YEARS, AND I’D BE HAPPY TO SHARE THEIR INFO.

Q: DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

A: YOU BET. I’D BE HAPPY TO SHARE A COPY OF MY COI WITH YOU, OR ANY VENDORS WHO MAY REQUIRE IT.

Q: HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?

A: I DELIVER ENGAGEMENT AND LIFESTYLE SESSIONS WITHIN TWO WEEKS. ELOPEMENTS ARE DELIVERED WITHIN THREE WEEKS, AND WEDDINGS WITHIN SIX WEEKS. I ALWAYS SEND A MINI SNEAK PEEK GALLERY A DAY OR TWO AFTER YOUR WEDDING.

Q: DO YOU HELP WITH PLANNING?

A: YES! I AM TOTALLY HERE FOR YOU- ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO CREATING A WEDDING DAY TIMELINE. WE CAN WORK TOGETHER TO BUILD ONE FROM SCRATCH, OR I CAN HELP YOU FILL IN ANY GAPS. I ALSO HAVE A WEDDING GUIDE FULL OF TIPS + TRICKS WHICH I WILL SHARE WITH YOU.

Q: WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION? IS THERE ANYTHING WE SHOULD AVOID?

A: I ALWAYS RECOMMEND TAILORING YOUR COLOR CHOICES TO YOUR SKIN TONE, EYE AND HAIR COLOR. WEAR THE COLOR THAT LOOKS BEST ON YOU. I SUGGEST COORDINATING COLORS AND PATTERNS TOGETHER, FOR EXAMPLE, IF ONE OF YOU HAS CHOSEN TO WEAR A PRINT/PATTERN, THAN THE OTHER SHOULD CHOOSE A SOLID. HATS, ACCESSORIES AND LAYERS ARE GREAT FOR ADDING DIVERSITY TO YOUR IMAGES. FEEL FREE TO KEEP IT CASUAL, OR GLAM IT UP IN FORMAL WEAR, WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEL CONFIDENT.

 Q: WHAT TIME OF DAY IS BEST FOR PHOTOGRAPHY?

 A: I PREFER TO SHOOT WITHIN TWO TWO HOURS OF SUNRISE OR SUNSET WHEN LIGHT IS SOFT, AND BEST FOR SKIN TONES. THE BEST LIGHT, IN MY OPINION, IS THE BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN GLOW RIGHT BEFORE THE SUN DIPS BEYOND THE HORIZON- IT REALLY DOES MAKE EVERYONE LOOK GOOD.

Q: DO YOU DELIVER RAW FILES?

A: NO, BUT REST ASSURED THAT I WON’T HOLD ANYTHING BACK FROM YOU. EVERY IMAGE THAT IS WORTHY OF BEING INCLUDED IN YOUR FINAL GALLERY, WILL BE THERE.

Q: CAN WE SWAP THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION FOR AN EXTRA HOUR OF WEDDING OR REHEARSAL DINNER COVERAGE?

A: I REALLY BELIEVE THAT AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION IS THE BEST WAY FOR US TO GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER, AND FOR YOU TO GET COMFORTABLE WITH MY SHOOTING STYLE, SO THAT YOU’LL KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE BIG DAY. FOR THAT REASON, THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION IS NOT EXCHANGEABLE FOR ANY OTHER TYPE OF COVERAGE.

Q: HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU SHOOT EACH YEAR?

A: ABOUT 25 WEDDINGS, AND A HANDFUL OF ELOPEMENTS.

Q: DO YOU EDIT ALL OF THE IMAGES?

A: YES! EVERY LAST IMAGE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME WILL BE CAREFULLY AND CREATIVELY EDITED IN LIGHTROOM AND PHOTOSHOP. IN FACT, I SPEND MORE TIME EDITING YOUR IMAGES THAN I SPEND PHYSICALLY AT YOUR SESSION OR WEDDING, AND PRODUCTION IS REALLY WHAT MAKES MY STYLE UNIQUE.YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR EDITED, HIGH RESOLUTION JPEG FILES VIA A BEAUTIFUL ONLINE GALLERY.
