HOW DO I BOOK WITH YOU?
In order to book your wedding with me, you’ll need to sign a contract and pay a $1000 non-refundable retainer. Portrait sessions require a $125 non-refundable retainer. All contracts and payments are processed online, so no need to print or mail any paperwork!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
You will receive your finished wedding gallery from me within 6-8 weeks of your wedding day. You’ll see previews within 24 hours! All portrait sessions are delivered within two weeks of your session.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?
Weddings are typically booked 10-12 months in advance, but feel free to reach out if your wedding is sooner! If I’m not available for your date, I’m happy to help find you some other great photographers who are.
SHOULD WE BOOK AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
Yes! If you can, I highly encourage booking an engagement session with your wedding package. I believe that an engagement session is a valuable time for you and your fiancé to get to know me and feel comfortable being in front of my camera before your wedding day. It’s always good to get all of those nervous jitters worked out so you can be relaxed and confident in your wedding images.
CAN I SHARE MY WEDDING OR PORTRAIT IMAGES ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
Of course! Every session or wedding that I photograph includes the edited, high resolution images with a print release. You are welcome to share and print the images. The only thing I ask is that you not edit or alter the images after they have been delivered in order to preserve the professional quality.
DO I HAVE TO BOOK A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
Booking a second photographer is a personal preference that is completely up to you and your fiancé. I recommend a second photographer if you have a large family or more than 150 guests. but there is no requirement. Booking a second photographer offers another perspective of your wedding day and reduces the amount of time needed to photograph details and bridal party before your ceremony.
ARE YOU INSURED? DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?
Yes and yes! I believe that any vendor you are considering for your wedding should be fully insured and have an emergency plan in place for equipment that fails or unexpected life events. All of the equipment I own is professional grade and ready to go for your wedding or portrait session. In the event that I have equipment that fails, I have matching back up equipment that is just an arms length away so I don’t miss a moment on your big day!
