Frequently Asked Questions

What are your wedding packages?

Great question. I offer 8+ hours of wedding day coverage with options that include a second photographer. Each wedding is delivered via an online gallery, includes printing rights, custom timeline planning, and a complimentary engagement session. You can customize your wedding coverage by giving yourself more time, an adventure engagement session, or even a post-wedding session. Packages begin at $2800.

How many photos will we get?

Typically I deliver around 100 photos per hour. This includes some black and white versions of photos that feel all the more timeless without color. I don’t really hold back. If it’s pretty, memorable, or hilarious, you’ll get it. But, I do take out the duplicates and blinks. Because each wedding is unique, each gallery size is unique as well.

How do you pose us?

Well, I pose you but at the same time don’t. I sprinkle in traditional forward-facing photos for your family that has a picture frame waiting for you. But for the most part, I give you prompts and actions that elicit laughter and intimacy. I like to grab both close up shots as well as far away, giving you variety and painting a bigger picture of your day. 

Can you edit out my… ?

Double chin, belly, arm flab… etc.? Honestly, I don’t believe in it. We all have our things that make us feel a little less. But part of what I do is cheer you on for who you are. I mean, your partner loves you this way, right? I’ll of course edit out a pimple that pops up or a piece of missed lint. I’ll direct you in ways that are the most flattering for you. But I won’t give in to an inner critic. I make sure you're feeling comfortable and confident in your photos from beginning to end.

Can we do this thing I saw on Pinterest?

First, it’s good to know the must-haves for your wedding day. Like, did you pick this venue because you love the woods that back up to it? Do you love the way your dress moves? Or, do you and your fiancé have a certain way of holding each other? Those are good things to know! But recreating someone else’s work is sometimes unrealistic given the location, timing, and stylistic differences. And, it can throw off an otherwise great flow to portraits. While I totally get if you found something you fell in love with, if anything, let’s find a way to make it yours.  

Do you offer any discounts?

Weddings can get expensive. If we’re the perfect fit but the investment is a bit above your budget, I appreciate your openness and honesty. But, other than being a mom, this is my full-time job. The investment goes toward much more than the time I spend shooting. It covers my childcare, insurance, equipment, time spent editing, hosting your photos, then backing them up long after the wedding. My pricing includes everything it takes to run a business as well as continue improving my skills and what I offer to you. I can do my best to work within your budget for off season and weekday weddings, as well as create custom packages.

Can I have the RAW files?

I take pride in providing you a finished gallery that reflects my style and craftsmanship. Part of that process is editing and retouching. You’ll only receive final edited images.

Do you still offer other portrait sessions?

Yep! I mainly gear my services toward couples, but also enjoy shooting portraits, branding photography for small businesses, and lifestyle sessions.

So, do we meet before?

I’d love to! We don’t have to meet before your engagement session if time won’t allow and can video chat instead. But I love taking couples out for coffee, lunch, drinks after work… whatever works with their schedule so we can see if this is the right fit. It’s a nice way to get to know each other and help you feel more comfortable before we start taking photos. And, I can help you with any wedding planning tips early on.

How do I book you?

Well first, fill out a contact form and give me all the details! You’re engaged and this is an exciting time. Tell me your wedding’s date, location, and all about you both! The more I know, the better. After we can talk more, you’ll choose the wedding package that fits best. You can always add time, so no worries if you need more. I require a signed digital contract and 50% of your total investment to lock in your date. The remaining 50% is due 1 month prior to your wedding.
