Find answers to some commonly asked questions below!
What’s your style?
I consider my photography style to be vibrant, raw and authentic. My style is not light and airy or dark and moody. I do like very natural looking photos and will try to avoid any awkward prom posed photos, I am consistently drawn to pops of color and contrast, so if that resonates with you, let’s book this thing!
Will you edit our photos to the style I like?
I fully appreciate dark and moody or light and airy editing styles, but that’s not true to my work. If you hire me, you can expect to see a style that is consistent with my galleries. You can absolutely tell me which galleries from my work you like best and I will keep this in mind while we shoot to help ensure your delivered gallery is aligned with both of our expectations.
Do we get to see all the photos and choose the ones we want you to edit?
As a photography professional, I want you to trust that I’m going to share and edit the most meaningful photos of you that I capture on your special day. I select and edit the best photos from the full day to provide you with a beautiful selection and variety of shots. If you receive the final edited images and would like to see more of a certain image type, I do offer additional edits for an edit fee.
Do you shoot all types of weddings?
Yes! Love is love. Your super religious, same-sex, non-denominational, super traditional, or completely out of the ordinary wedding is welcome here. I love experiencing new perspectives and have an open-mind to everything!
How far in advance should we book you for our wedding?
I’m currently booking for Spring 2020 through 2021. If you feel strongly that I’m a fit for your wedding, send an inquiry ASAP to find out if I’m available for your date. You don’t even need to have your venue pinned down. In fact, if you haven’t booked the venue yet, I can help you with timelines and ideal venue setups to consider for optimal photos.
How many shooters do you bring to a wedding?
This depends on the package you select. Typically a second shooter will be on-hand. Depending on size and logistics, additional shooters or assistants will be present.
Do you do video too?
I do not do videography, but I can provide you with my recommended videography vendors!
What are your prices and packages?
Pricing varies on several factors including hours of coverage requested, any applicable travel fees and add-ons! Peep my package starting rates on my pricing page or contact me for my full pricing guide and a customized quote.
We’re on a budget, Do you offer discounts?
I get that weddings can be expensive, but when it comes to the wedding industry you absolutely get what you are willing to pay for. If you want your friend who is interested in photography but has only ever shot on auto-mode to capture your wedding for cheap, it’s a shot in the dark regarding how the photos will come out. Trust me, my sister tried to cut costs on her wedding photographer when she and my brother-in-law got married right after graduating college and it was one of their BIGGEST regrets. The rest of the wedding was amazing, but all she has to remember it by are blurry, poorly lit pics.
That being said, I do offer discount rates for weekday weddings and elopements that are on my destination travel list. If you have another destination location in mid that isn’t listed, just hit me up with your idea as I may offer a discount if it’s a place I’m want to visit (and just don’t know it yet).
I/my partner hate(s) having their photo taken. Can you help?
I have a very calm presence combined with a candid photojournalistic style. The only time you’ll really be aware of the cameras is during family group photos and the couples portraits, and during this time I will guide you through everything to ensure it is as quick and painless as possible for those who are camera-shy. I aim for open communication from your very first point of contact with me so that by the time your wedding arrives, it feels like I’m just another member of your bridal posse hanging out with a camera in hand. I also highly recommend couples engagement sessions as practice, plus a time to get to know one another and get comfortable being in front of the lens. BONUS: a complimentary engagement session is included as part of my Gold and Platinum wedding packages or can be added on as an a-la-carte option!
Should I give you a shot list?
As an expert in the photography field, there is no need to give us a shot list. One less thing for you to worry about. You can trust that I’ve got you covered and will be prepared to get all the most flattering photos as well as leaving room for creative candids and artistic inspiration that arises in the moment. The only list I will ask for is your list of family group shots.
When will we see our photographs?
We live in an age of instant gratification so I get that your eager to see and share your wedding day experience, In order to provide you with optimally edited photos that don’t look rushed and are going to look great for years to come across all mediums, from print to digital and more, expect to see your full gallery in 8-12 weeks. At that time, you will receive a link to your online gallery which you have full rights to download and share as you please!
Do you offer prints and albums?
Yes! An album is included in my premium wedding package. If you opt for another one of my packages, prints and albums can be added on a-la-carte.
You’re the photographer for us! How do we reserve our wedding or couples session date?
Boop that book now button to shoot me an inquiry about availability and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours!
