FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW MANY IMAGES ARE INCLUDED?

As a minimum, for weddings, I deliver at least 700. For sessions, I deliver a minimum of 200. I don't put a set number on how many you will receive, but I never leave anything. I don't put a cap or a limit on what I will deliver. Every wedding is different and varies from the last and numbers are always changing. If you’d like to see some full wedding galleries please feel free to ask! I’m happy to send a few over so you can get an idea of what I deliver.

WILL I GET RAW FILES?

Nope. I don’t because editing is half the process/magic that goes into images, and without that huge step the images are only halfway done. I promise to never leave any photos out that you’ll want/need, and if you feel I missed delivering a photo, just ask! I’m more than happy to check back through my images and send it over for you. I won't let you miss out on any memories. 

HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?

I require a 50% deposit when you book with me to reserve your date. The other 50% is due two - four weeks prior to your session date. I accept cash, check, Venmo, and PayPal. I will send you invoices.

WHAT IF WE CANCEL/RESCHEDULE OUR WEDDING?

Your 50% deposit is non-refundable. If there is something like an urgent family emergency or a crazy natural disaster on the same day as your wedding, we can work together to reschedule. I can’t guarantee that I’ll be available on the new date you select to have your wedding. If this should happen, we will have to work with one another’s schedule to figure out the logistics of everything.

 

WHAT IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT TO OUR WEDDING?

I pray every day that will never happen. BUT, if I cannot make your wedding because of something crazy way out of my control, I will do my best to find another photographer with a similar style and that I fully trust to do an amazing job. However, I am not legally required to do this. If I am unable to find another photographer to replace me, I will fully refund you (50% deposit and all).

 

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS REALLY BAD?

If we have to reschedule a couples/engagement due to bad weather we will find a time that works for both of us! Obviously, we can’t reschedule due to weather on your wedding day, but some of my favorite shoots are from overcast days and unexpected wind and rain! I promise we can make magic with whatever is thrown our way as long as I don’t think my equipment will get ruined or that we’ll be 100% miserable the whole time we will go on an epic adventure!

CAN YOU MAKE US LOOK SKINNIER?

I won’t Photoshop you to look thinner, because you’re beautiful just as you are and I want you to see and know that! I may remove a blemish or two if I feel it distracts from the overall photo, cause we all have those days! I’ll remove any distractions from the backgrounds but windblown hair and dirty dresses are my jam! 

WHAT DO WE WEAR?

Whatever best represents you! I want you to be comfortable and like yourself. If you’re used to yoga pants all day, I don’t expect you to break your feet walking in stilettos. I have a style guide I can send over with suggestions, color ideas, texture recommendations and more! Your outfit should compliment you, your love and the location you’re shooting in! But if you have any questions I’m here to help, send me pics, texts, Face Time, whatever! Lots of options are your best friend! 

WHAT IF I’M NOT GOOD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?

I get it, having your picture taken can be scary and uncomfortable but I PROMISE we will have a blast! I truly believe that the discomfort comes from not knowing what to do. I promise you won’t be thinking about what to do, I got all the direction your heart desires. Also there’s these little things called shots that can help get cha in the mood real quick, but only if you want I’ll bring some along!
