FAQ

Okay I’m in, I want to book you! How do I do it?

Heck yeah! I can’t wait to meet and work with you, it’s going to be beautiful. As a first step, go ahead and fill out my contact form here. If it’s for a couples session, engagements or lifestyle shoot, once we’ve chatted it out and settled on a date, time and location for your shoot I will email you a contract outlining our agreement as well as an invoice for a non-refundable retainer of 30% of your session fee.

If it’s for a wedding inquiry, I’ll send over my wedding collections for you to take a look at. If you’re interested (& I hope you are!) we will set up a time to grab coffee (on me, of course) or hop on a Zoom call to chat all things wedding and get to know one another. If you think we’re a good fit, I’ll send over your proposal that includes a contract and a non-refundable retainer of 30% of your overall fee. After we put pen to paper you are offically booked and we schedule your engagement session!

WHEN WILL I GET MY IMAGES BACK?

Trust me, I’m just as eager as you are to see the final product! I guarantee you will have your full gallery within two weeks of your shoot date for couples, lifestyle sessions and engagements, and 4 weeks for weddings.

CAN I HAVE THE RAW (UNEDITED) IMAGES?

No. I’ve spent many hours perfecting my technique and when you hire me you are hiring my editing style. Any adjustments to my images such as the addition of filters is not allowed.

HOW WILL MY IMAGES BE DELIVERED?

I use a digital delivery system called Pic-Time to email you your gallery. You will have full access to the online gallery where you can download high-resolution images on both web and mobile. This online gallery is live for forever!

You also have the option to order prints and canvas’ directly from your online gallery – no third party printing service is needed.

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?

Plain and simple – we will get you the best images no matter what. I’m very flexible and willing to work around your schedule as well as the weather’s. I’m checking on the weather all day the day of our shoot and will reach out to you ASAP if I have any concerns.

HELP! WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

When in doubt, stick to neutrals: white, cream, tan, brown, denim – those always turn out great. I usually tell people to try and stay away from bright, primary colors (red, yellow, blue) since sometimes those can be distracting. WE want you to be the main focus of the shot, not your dress!

But no matter what color you’re wearing, make sure it’s an outfit that really speaks to who you are! Stick to what you feel most comfortable and confident in.

But don’t worry, once we’re booked I’ll send over a styling guide to help ya out.

DO YOU PHOTOSHOP US?

I will always edit out those un-wanted blemishes, bruises, etc. that no one wants documented forever, but I will never make unnatural adjustments to your body. I pride myself on the fact that you will look like you in my images.

DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH FAMILIES?

I don’t anymore, unless it’s for couples who I’ve shot in the past. I’m happy to recommend other photog friends who I love very much that I know your family will love too!

DO YOU BACKUP YOUR PHOTOS?

YES! This is so so important to me. I dual record to two SD cards while shooting and upload your images to two external hard drives the minute I get home. I also don’t erase your images from my SD cards until the gallery has been delivered to you. The safety of your images is something I take really seriously.
