Frequently asked questions
How do we book you?
Excellent question and a super easy one to answer! If after all of your research and internet stalking, you’ve determined I’m the photographer for you, you have two options. First, if you want to play it cool, you can request a consultation by clicking “Contact” at the footer of any page. If you’re the kind of person who likes to ask questions later, like myself, then go ahead and click “Book Your Story” in the top right hand corner now! I typically respond within the first 24 hours. There will be a 50% retainer fee upon booking, the remainder will be due 1 month prior to your session.
How many photos will we get?
This question depends on the package that you’re purchasing. Are you looking for a 1 hour grad photo session? You’ll typically get anywhere between 10-20 photos, depending on my rate. Booking a 2 hour engagement shoot? You’ll receive anywhere between 20-40 photos. If you have a certain number of photos you’d like to make sure you receive, or certain shots that you just have to have, let me know! I am more than happy to curtail my packages to fit your needs.
What is your turnaround time?
I love, love, LOVE editing photos. But I also have responsibilities and other clients. With that said, I will always do my best to get you your photos as soon as possible. The typical turn around time depends on the size of the package you’re purchasing. Needing a grad session? You’ll likely see the photos within a week. Engagement session, probably two weeks. Weddings can expect results 2-4 weeks after the big day!
do you photoshop your clients?
The short answer: no.
I believe, as most wedding photographers do, in authenticity and celebrating our characteristics that make us unique and special. When I take your photos, I want you to see yourself the way I see you. Beautiful. Glowing. Loved. And so damn YOU. That means I won’t remove your scars or make you skinnier; I won’t make you taller or perfectly airbrushed. I will show you the beauty that is YOU. Have temporary blemishes? That I can help with! Acne, bruises, and pesky stray hairs can be removed.
How will we receive our photos?
Typically, you will be sent a secure link in which you can download the files. Of course, if you’d prefer, they can be downloaded onto a hard drive and mailed. It’s totally up to you. The turnaround time for digital downloads is significantly quicker and cheaper.
will you travel?
HELL YES! I love, love, LOVE to travel, and the only thing I love more than traveling is photography. Sign me up for those romantic, adventurous elopements. When I commit to shooting your engagement or wedding, I commit 100%. I will do whatever it takes to get you the perfect photos. Need me to climb into bushes? You go it. Need me to lie in the dirt? I’m on it. We need to get into the ocean? Okay. I will completely immerse myself into our surrounding if that’s what it’ll take. Of course, travel rates will apply and depends upon location - but don’t let that scare you! Let’s talk and figure it out :)
