Frequently Asked Questions

you’re the one, how do I book?

*pop the champagne!* Shoot me an email here and I’ll send you all of the details. You’ll sign a long and boring contract, fill out some fun details about your day and pay your retainer fee to fully secure your date.
 

when do we do an engagement session?

Any time you want! Most of my brides like to book their session as soon as possible and some wait until closer to the date. It’s all up to you!

can you photoshop….

Yes and no. I believe that you are beautiful just the way I see you through my camera but at the same time, I am self conscious about certain things too. I automatically include basic retouching (blemishes, teeth whitening, etc.) but anything other than that may require an additional editing fee.

why do we need a timeline?

Wedding days are chaotic. A structured timeline ensures that there is enough time for all photography throughout the day, tells your family when they need to be ready and when, and allows you (the bride) ample time to chill and decompress before the walk down the aisle!

How many photos can we expect?

The amount of images you will receive varies by session time, outfit changes, number of people etc. For portrait sessions you can expect an average of 50 or more. For full wedding days, an average of 550+.

what happens after we pay the retainer?

Your date is fully secured in my calendar. We’ll start planning a time/date for your engagement session if your package comes with one and we’ll also talk about your timeline and best tips/advice to ensure a smooth and stress-free day.

when will my photos be readY?

Portrait sessions can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks (usually) - for weddings, 2-4 weeks. Sometimes life gets in the way but I’ll be sure to communicate with you!

if we can’t do an engagement session, is the package cheaper?

My engagement or bridal sessions are built into the foundation of my packages. If we are unable to schedule a date or if it just doesn’t work out, the package price does not change. However, I work really hard to accommodate all kinds of schedules so we’ll make sure we do what we have to first.

what if it rains?

Then we dance in the rain! No really. Some of my favorite weddings shots are in the rain (towards the end of the reception of course) For portrait sessions, we’ll discuss any backup plans and location changes closer to the date.
