Frequently Asked Questions
Will you be able to shoot our whole wedding by yourself? Most weddings (lower than 100 guests) yes! But once I know more about your wedding day timeline, I will be able to recommend hiring one of my second shooters for a very low fee if needed.
Who edits the photos? I do! This is actually one of my favorite things to do as a photographer. Every picture is handled with love and care, and since I was the one experiencing your wedding day with you, I am able to pick the best pictures that fully capture your day!
What's the Delivery Time? Standard time in the industry is 8-10 weeks. And I strive to stay within that time frame!
Do we get all of our photos? Absolutely! The only photos I don't deliver is all the blinking, blurry or unflattering photos that I know you don't want to print/have. I don't put a cap on how many photos I deliver. It just depends on how long I am hired for and how much goes on during your wedding day. I do not send you any RAW (un-edited) photos – you are hiring me for my editing style and trust that I will send all the right photos.
How do you deliver photos? I deliver the photos to you through an online gallery with HI-RES and web size downloads. You also will receive a personalized print shop with every gallery. No watermarks or logos will be on the photos.
How do we book? Once we are past the inquiry stage and you have decided to fully book me, I will send over your contract and final invoice. Once everything is signed and agreed upon, I will require a 20% non-refundable deposit that goes towards your payment. These terms will be discussed further before booking. Then your date is saved and we are all good to go!
Do I meet with clients before booking? Of course I can! But we don't have to. I understand that each clients needs are different and everyone has their own busy lives to lead. So I always communicate the way that works best with your needs and schedules. I do, however, always recommend an engagement session or bridals so that we are able to get to know each other better before the big day.
Do you take engagements? Absolutely! I love engagements and I always recommend that my brides bundle their engagements with their wedding package along with bridals. It allows us to get to know each other better so day of the wedding I feel less like a stranger and more like a friend.
Are you able to work with budgets? Money is never easy to talk about, but I strive to make it transparent and have open communication. I am a full-time photographer. I don’t have a 401k or health benefits that come with a corporate job. I have to pay for everything out of my own hard earned money/pocket. While I truly want and will try to work with your budget – it’s just not always available because I have a “hard cost” in order to profit and stay in business. With that being said, here are some things that make it more likely to work with you if my pricing is not within your budget. 1) Having a wedding on a Friday or Sunday. 2) Having a wedding during “off” season (which is December-March) OR 3) Your wedding is last minute and around the corner (within 3-4 months).
Can we see a full gallery? Of course! When you inquire, I can send you a link with all the weddings that I have shot within your area. Or check out my portfolio in the menu above!
Do you do any other types of photography: Yes! I make a good portion of my income from headshots and commercial work along with editorial shoots. To check out more of my portraits/headshots click here and check out my personal social media here.
