Q: How do we book with you?
A: After establishing which collection you’d like, we go over the details, sign a contract, and when the deposit is paid your wedding/session is on my calendar!
Q: Can we modify a package to fit our needs?
A: Absolutely; it’s your day, so I love making adjustments to a package so it is mutually beneficial.
Q: How do payments work?
A: After your deposit is paid, which is 25% of the total package cost, another 25% of your package cost is due by 90 days prior to your event date, and the rest is due in full 30 days prior to your event date. This system helps everyone involved!
Q: When do I receive my photos?
A: I always say 6-8 week turnaround for weddings and elopements, but during busy seasons it can be 8-10 weeks. I will always try to get them to you sooner! Portrait sessions are typically a 2-3 week turnaround.
Q: Do you travel?
A: Absolutely! I love to travel and have done a great deal of it both within the US and internationally. My frame pack & camera equipment have seen many places!
Q: Can I get a wedding album and/or prints?
A: Of course, prints are included in my wedding packages. Contact me for more information!
Q: Do you have a second shooter?
A: I do! I typically shoot alone unless it is a larger bridal party or family situation in which a second hand/eye is most helpful. A second shooter typically is with me 3-5 hours depending on how your day is planned, and they are always professional photographers themselves. Check out my pricing page to see which collections they’re included in.
Q: How many hours of coverage do you recommend?
A: My packages cover between from 3 to 10 hours, but on average people have a need for 8 hours of coverage. Every situation is unique, and I love to work out details with you personally. Typically wedding days get the best coverage with 7 to 10 hours, while elopements are 3 to 5. Always go with your true desires on this aspect, and don’t be afraid to ask about adjusting this part of a package. Additional hours are available!
Q: Do we send you a shot list?
A: Beyond a list of family members you need photos with, the answer is no! I take great pride in my craft, and it is my job to capture the details for you as they happen naturally throughout the day. Although Pinterest is great for many things, it does not need to dictate how I work for you. I need you to entrust that I am being hired to do my job fully.
Q: How do we receive our photos?
A: You’ll receive your digital images in a gallery on pixieset, as well as on a USB drive. All images you receive are edited, I do not give back anything that has not been worked on. They are also a mixture of color and black & white, sometimes the same image will be given to you in both formats. The images are available for download from your online gallery and you can purchase additional prints, share images in emails, and share on social media directly from that gallery!

Q: Can we share images on social media?
A: Totally! This makes my heart so happy. When you receive your images you have the rights to personal use, which includes sharing on social media, printing, emailing to grandma, making into an album, etc. . I only ask that you do not crop, edit, put filters onto, or manipulate images in any way… I’ve already edited everything for you! & I ask that you give photo credit, word of mouth is a huge way for me to reach other rad people!
