How far in advance needed to book?
A: If I have the date open, it's all yours! Wedding bookings can happen anywhere from a few months before and even a year or more. All other sessions are pretty flexible, again, as long as the date is available!
What if we change our wedding date?
A: No problem! If I have your desired date available for changing then its all yours! There won't be an additional retainer fee for the change. If I'm already booked, I can definitely pass along some contact info for experienced photographers.
Do you travel?
A: Absolutely! I love to travel and will pretty much go anywhere. We can discuss it in more detail based on your wedding plans and desires for documenting the day.
Do you edit all of the photos you give us?
A: Yep! I personally go through each photo to edit them with a natural, but stylized look. I don't "photoshop" or manipulate anything in the photos, only correct coloring and minor blemishes.
Can we share our photos on social media?
A: YES! I love social media and seeing clients share their favorite images. You share the rights to the photos and can use the images for your personal use however you like. I do appreciate any tagging or photo credit :)
How do we receive our photos?
A: You'll receive a disc or USB with all of the final photos in two different versions; print and web safe. This way you can share on social media and print with no image quality issues. In addition, there will be a document accompanying them giving you the printing rights to wherever you'd like.
How many hours do you cover for weddings?
A: I use to start at 8 hours, then anything more than that was an additional fee. Now, I've decided I want to focus more on my couple, giving them the time and attention I feel is more important that figuring out how long I need to be there. What I tell my couples now is, "You get me for the day." This is within reason of course, I love my couples but I won't likely be there for 12+ hours :) But I will be there to make sure all of your important moments are covered.
Is there a session retainer fee?
A: Yes, to book the wedding date a $500 retainer is required.
Do you use a second shooter?
A: Yes, but not always. If the couple requests a second shooter it's an additional $150 on the wedding collection price. If we go through the wedding plans for the day, with no second shooter planned and I determine I will need more help I have some very talented shooters I will bring at no additional charge due it being an unforeseen need.
How do I book?!
A: Thank you for making it this far, I'm excited for the opportunity to work with you! Fill out a contact form for your wedding or elopement, and we will ideally meet in person or video chat to discuss further details and see if I'm a good fit for what you want to capture your big day!
