South Dakota Wedding & Portrait Photography

FAQ

  • 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!
