Do you only shoot local weddings?
No way!! I adore my stomping grounds, but I love to travel. So far, I have shot weddings all along the eastern coast — but, I am ready to pack my bags and go any and everywhere!
Do you edit all of the images you give?
Absolutely. Every single image that ends up in your possession is edited personally by me.
How many photos should I expect?
With standard portrait sessions, you can expect 75-125 images. For 7 hour wedding days, 500-800 depending on how you prioritize coverage. However, I do not cap images at a specific number. Any and all images that I deem correct on a visual and technical scale are handed over to my clients.
Is it possible to see more wedding samples?
Absolutely! I have shot so many weddings, that it’s near impossible to display all my favorite images here without blowing your computer up. You can see more cohesive galleries on Facebook. I can also send you a front to back demo gallery if you need to see more. xx
What do I expect after you shoot my wedding?
The editing and packaging process typically takes 8-12 weeks depending on the time of year. You can expect to receive a USB flash drive, a digital print release for universal printing, and prints depending on the package you select. You can also expect a custom form if you selected a package with an album. I hand package and include a gift for clients as well.
None of your listed packages seem to fit exactly what I need. Can I make a custom one?
Yes! I am always happy to try and make a package fit my client’s needs. As long as the package totals up more than my basic package pricing, we can always make it work.
Are there hidden costs I will find out about later?
Absolutely not. The price detailed in your contract is your final price. That buys the photos, printing rights, and any additional items agreed upon during signing.
How far in advance should I book you?
The sooner the better. Most wedding clients book me at least a year in advance, though some get lucky and squeeze in after that. Portrait clients usually book anywhere from 1-3 months in advance. I tend to fill up fast, and I can only do soft holds for very brief periods of time.
Do you only shoot weddings?
Nope! Along with weddings, I am very comfortable shooting live births, engagement, bridal, newborn, maternity, high school senior, family, and boudoir packages.
I love your work, but I don’t know you. Do you have any reviews?
You can find client testimonials here. Feel free to leave me one if we end up working together!
I am ready to book you. What’s next!?
Portrait clients can book online, just message me for more details. I prefer to meet potential wedding clients in person, even if it is just a quick conversation over a cup of coffee. I understand that some potential clients live out of state or may be interested in destination weddings. In those situations, a phone call or Skype would be a great step. The more personal, the better to be certain we are a great match. If we meet and love each other, you will then have a soft hold of 2 weeks to sign a contract and pay a 33% retainer to hold your wedding date.
