Do you Travel?
Yes! If you're traveling to another state or country, you want to trust the vendor who has one of the most important parts of your wedding investment. Don't depend on someone you don't know or may not meet until your wedding day. That is a lot of stress. What if you don't connect that photographer? Set your mind at ease and hire a local photographer to YOU, so you have the opportunity to meet in person pre-wedding to talk style, ideas, important details & more. After the wedding, we can meet & have a celebratory reveal of your wedding photos as well as look at print options for your home & album.
How long have you been doing this?
Photography has been a full time business for me for 10 years, but a hobby for many years before. I also have worked in the floral business, event coordinating and logistics so with a combined many years of event or wedding industry service, I have about 30 years of experience.
How many photos do we get?
Every wedding is unique in content so we do not guarantee a picture count. What we don't do is include multiple copies of photos, photos with eyes closed, photos that are blurred or just not complimentary to the subject. What you do receive is master edited photos, from various angles. Our goal is to get at least one of every guest in attendance as well as of your family & friends. In our pre-wedding consultations, we will thoroughly discuss family dynamics, photo ideas & more so that we capture all that is unique to your wedding day.
How do we get our photos?
We offer you the option to download directly from your online gallery or we can also load them onto a custom USB. Once we deliver them, we encourage you to save them in two different locations for safe keeping, outside of a desktop or laptop.
Do you retouch photos?
Every photo gets edited & every photo that is likely to go to print, will get an extra touch. After the photos are worked & sent to you, I ask for & welcome feedback if in the event you see something you would like an additional edit on. Any additional edits would need to be made by me & we kindly ask that no additional filters be added to the images once they are delivered. Photographers are artist & you have commissioned me to photograph your memories & turn them into art that I produced for you. If for some reason you would like a different edit on an image, I encourage you to talk with me so that we can collaborate together to provide you something unique.
Whats your turn around time?
We offer a 5-10 preview the next morning for a minimal fee or a complimentary preview within 48 hours.
The entire wedding delivery is 4-6 weeks at max.
How do we book you?
After our consultation, we kindly ask to secure your date with a $500 retainer. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the wedding. Additional products, such as albums, will be available for purchase up to 90 days after your wedding date.
Can you help us with planning?
If you are simply wanting some advice on time frames of events, suggestions on how to organize your reception, etc., I can & would be happy to help or offer suggestions. If you need assistance beyond that, I have worked with many planners & can offer you their details. I strongly encourage all of my clients to have a planner so that the day of, you can enjoy each moment to it's fullest.
How far out do you book?
A year and half is the max.
What should we do for an engagement session?
This part is fun! We will work together to come up with an engagement session that captures your personalities & interests. Wether it be a few snaps while boating or easy as walking through the park. We can also keep it up a notch by brining in furniture & full setups.
What should we wear?
This is a consultation we offer & can guide you on. I always encourage Pinterest for ideas too.
