My budget is less than what your average price is listed at, can you work with me?
Absolutely! I’m on a budget too, so I completely understand. On your inquiry form, just let me know what your budget is, and what you’re hoping to accomplish with that budget, and we can make something happen. I promise I’ll do my best to work with you and create a package that will work for both of us.
Do I need a second shooter?
The majority of my clients opt to have a second shooter. Having a second set of eyes allows me to better cover your day and not have to worry about missing any special moments. I’d say the only time I don’t have a second with me are for weddings smaller than 100 guests or elopements.
Do you travel?
Yes, I’ve shot weddings all around the US and Europe. Travel fees will be assessed based on the location of your wedding.
We’re ready to hire you. What comes next?
Great! Once we have the deets and your package figured out, you’ll sign a contract a pay a non-refundable $500 deposit, you’ll get added to my clients-only Facebook group, and then we’ll schedule your engagement session.
What time and where do you usually shoot engagement photos?
I typically schedule engagement sessions about 90 minutes before sunset (or during sunrise) for optimal lighting. Because we don’t always have that luxury on your wedding day, I love to shoot engagement photos during what we photogs like to call glow hour. You get the pretty sun flares and even skin tones, and we don’t have to worry about squinty eyes or harsh shadows. In regards to location, that’s completely up to you! If you need suggestions, I’m happy to help, I just want your photos to be reflective of who you guys are.
How long until I get to see my photos?
Engagement photos are usually delivered within 1-2 weeks of your session, and wedding photos are delivered within 4-6 weeks. I do my best to give you a decent sized preview of your wedding photos within a week either on my website or in a gallery that you can share with family and friends.
Do you offer prints or albums?
Yes and yes. It might be because I’m 80 on the inside, but I am huge on printing work and encourage you to do it. You’ll be able to order prints directly from your online gallery (ask me for a coupon code, I usually have one!) and if you’d like a custom album made, I can make one for you for anywhere between $500-900 depending on the size and number of pages you want.
Can I refer my family and friends to you?
Duh. I shoot family and maternity sessions, as well as parties and events. It’s always the biggest compliment when past or present clients refer their family and friends to me.
