How much do I pay up front to secure our date?
-$300. That’s it. For every wedding large or small. I know that you are paying a ton of deposits right now and I want to keep it simple and affordable.
How would you describe your style?
-I like to keep it real- real colors, real emotions. I don't like following photography trends because I don't think those photos will stand the test of time (remember Sepia and selective color)? I edit closely to film colors that are vibrant, romantic, and don't look like filters.
When will I get my pictures back?
-For weddings, industry standard is 6-8 weeks, but I think that's way too long! I try my best to get your photos back to you before your one month anniversary, and will let you know asap if it will be any longer. Other portrait sessions will take about 2 weeks.
What happens if you are unable to make it to my wedding?
-Unless I have the actual plague or something tragic has happened, I will be there! If I absolutely cannot make it, my second photographer will take over or I have about 7-10 photographers who I trust that are ready to take over immediately. I would still be the one editing and delivering the photos.
This is a good time to grab a coffee or a lap dog. Lots of info!
Can you photoshop that?
-I don't often Photoshop things out of your photos, but I do make sure to shoot at the best angles with the best lighting, so that your final images look amazing and I will clean up little things. If there's something you want Photoshopped out, I can outsource it for an additional cost.
Do I get all the photos?
-I spend a lot of time culling your images and I promise I'm not leaving out any good ones!
How will I receive my final images?
-I will upload all of your final wedding images into a private, online gallery. From there, you can print, download, and share the images with whoever you want, with no additional costs.
Can we meet in person beforehand?
-If you're a face-to-face kinda person, I will absolutely meet up with you. I have found that most times, Facetime or a phone call work great too. An engagement shoot is also the perfect opportunity to get to know each other before your wedding.
Will you come see the venue beforehand?
-I'm completely comfortable shooting in all scenarios. If you are at a venue I am unfamiliar with, I will arrive early to your wedding to scope things out and make a plan based on what the lighting is doing that day.
Can you recreate this shot I found on Pinterest?
-I love Pinterest! It is a fantastic resource for inspiration and I would love to see some of your inspiration boards. For me, the more communication we have beforehand about expectations, the happier you will be with your photos. I won't copy an exact image from Pinterest, but I love having a general idea of the types of photos you love.
My partner is photo adverse/We're awkward in photos. Is that ok?
Yep! If we need to grab a drink or two before, let's do it! I also feel awkward in front of the camera, so I feel ya. My job is to make the experience fun, keep things moving along, and direct you in ways that are flattering and comfortable-no cheesy prom poses, unless that's your jam ;)
What is the process if we decide to move forward?
-Drinks on me! ;) Once you decide to book, I will send you a short contract. Once you send over your deposit ($500), I am all yours! From there, I can recommend other vendors, help you with your photography timeline, and start planning out our next steps together.
Are you LGBTQ Friendly?
Absolutely yes! All shapes, sizes, colors, and orientations are welcome here and I have made sure that all of the vendors on my referral list share the same inclusive values.
