WHAT/WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
If you’re just wanting someone with a fancy camera to show up and get those posed smiling shots, we might not be the best fit. I’m all about the mud on the shoes, uncontrollable laughter, jumping a few fences and hiking back in the dark to get the shot. My ideal client is looking for a fun time during our session and enjoys the process. They are fashionable, eccentric, adventurous, and look at me as a person or friend rather than a vendor on their wedding checklist. My ideal client generally finds me to be their ideal photographer, lets meet up and see if we are a good match!
HOW DO I BOOK YOU FOR MY WEDDING?
Fill out the availability inquiry form on my contact page, Be sure to add as many details about your wedding as possible, this allows me to quote you more efficiently. I take commissions on a first-come, first-served basis and never book 2 weddings within 48 hours of one another. This allows me to be available for my brides the day before as well as the day after to provide them with the best-personalized photography experience. I require a 50% deposit and a signed contract in order to book your wedding.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Yes! Yes! & Yes! As of 2017 i’m now offering discounts on certain “buck list” places i’m dying to shoot (ask for a list!). I welcome destinations weddings with open arms. Whether its a place you can see your breath or a destination that takes it away, count me in! Story telling is a main priority in my work and doing destination weddings allows me to tell the entire story of your wedding afar.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
To ensure all of my couples get an individually priced wedding quotation, I suggest contacting me with general details about your wedding day. Your wedding is unique and your wedding quotation should be as well. Upon quoting you I take into consideration, time spent on the day, location, date, and individual needs. Depending on the your needs I have different packages to accommodate you. My most popular wedding package begins at 3,000.
I AM ELOPING, CAN YOU WORK WITH A SMALLER BUDGET?
Yes! I have an elopement packages starting at $1,700. Fill out my inquiry form on my contact page and give me the details on your intimate ceremony.
HOW LONG UNTIL WE RECEIVE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS?
About 5-8 weeks. Delivery time varies depending on what month you get married and how many weddings I have booked. I take pride in carefully selecting and editing each and every photo to make you look your best. Usually you receive your photos after being married for 3-4 months.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU DELIVER?
The amount of photos varies depending on the session and amount of hours. You can expect around 50-100 photos every hour during a wedding day. Usually for 2 hour sessions I deliver around 80-180 photos.
WILL YOU TAKE POSED FAMILY PHOTOS ON THE DAY OF THE WEDDING?
Absolutely, I request that each couple reserve about 20 mins after or before their ceremony for traditional family portraits. Upon signing the contract I will ask for an immediate family and bridal party list. This helps me prepare for setting up the bridal party and family photos in an efficient and timely manner.
WHAT WILL YOUR ATTIRE BE FOR OUR WEDDING?
I dress for the occasion and try to blend in with either the colors of the bridal party or wear black. Lets face it, I’m a fashionista and I like to look professional!
DO YOU EXPECT TO BE FED AT THE WEDDING?
I don’t like to expect anything, however it is usually standard that photographers and any contracted second shooter gets fed during the reception. We usually eat in a separate room or somewhere off to the side and only take about a 20 min break to ensure we don’t miss any of the festivities. 8-10 hours on your feet, sweating, bending, carrying heavy equipment, and walking without proper nutrition doesn’t leave much room to feel creative and alert.
WHEN IS THE FINAL PAYMENT DUE?
I request that the final payment be paid out to me 14 days prior to your wedding date. I’ve learned that having it closer to your wedding date only stresses out my brides when they should be relaxing and sipping on champagne before the big day, not hassling with vendor payments!
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS?
Yes I offer military and returning customers discounts. Contact me if you’re interested!
HOW LONG WILL YOU KEEP MY FILES?
After handing over my clients their photos I back them up for only 10 days. It’s very important that you back up your files once I give them to you.
