How do I know if we are a good fit for each other?
If my work makes you feel warm and fuzzy feelings, if you value your wedding photography as an investment and not just something to check off the To-Do list, if you're down to get a little dirty and a lot cuddly then, we are made for each other.
Do you shoot elopements?
Heck yes, I do. Few things in life bring me more joy then when couples choose to leave behind the stress of traditions and plan an intimate wedding where the focus is just on the art of getting married. No fuss. Just you and your closest loved ones celebrating in the most laid-back, intimate way. I also offer special rates for elopements scheduled between Monday-Thursday. (WOO!)
What is a first look and why do you recommend it?
A first look is when you set time aside before your ceremony to see each other. I highly recommend them but not because it seems like a growing trend. I got married 8 years ago and doing a first look was practically unheard of. But, man, what I would give to have the opportunity to do that over again. The idea of seeing my best friend before all the added eyes and pressure hit us would be a moment I know would have brought me so much comfort. I understand and respect that it's not for everyone and that's totally ok! But for those of you on the fence, here is a great article on more pros.
When will we RECEIVE our images?
2-3 weeks for portraits and engagements and 6-8 weeks for weddings. I tooootally get that waiting is a bummer so I do my best to have some previews within a week!
can we get a discount if we choose to not use the complimentary engagement session?
Sorry, but nope! It's made complimentary for a reason. In order for me to capture you as your best selves, you've got to let me in so we can get to know each other and get any awkwardness out of the way. I promise the product will be much greater than if we were to meet on the wedding day! And if for whatever reason you will not be needing engagement photos, this can not be swapped out for other sessions or extra hours of coverage on your wedding day.
Do you Travel?
You bet! I have such and appreciation for this world and would mind documenting your love stories in every corner of it! I have wedding packages that already include ALL travels fees. So if you're planning a destination wedding and want me to be your third wheel, say hey!
how many images will we receive?
Every wedding is so special and unique with all of its little details, I never give an exact amount every time. But, to give you an idea, an average wedding of 8 hours would expect a gallery of 500-800 images.
Can I send you a shot list or ideas i've found on pinterest?
Thanks but no thanks! I want to capture your special day the way it naturally unfolds and if I'm trying to work off of a checklist then it takes me into a totally different headspace. I go into task mode and the creativity takes the back burner. It's a given that I will capture all the necessities i.e, getting ready, family shots, ceremony looks, bridal party, etc. but if there is any detail that stands out from the norm that you'd love me to capture just let me know!
