I understand this is the first for some of you. I never want to leave you in the dark during this whole process. Any questions you have I am here to answer them.
WHEN IS THE FULL AMOUNT DUE?
For weddings 1 month prior. Paid in Full. Small sessions, one day before session. No photos will be taken until paid in full.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOGRAPHS?
6-8 weeks for a weddings. For Sessions. 2-4 weeks.
HOW DO WE OFFICALLY BOOK?
Weddings is a $500 non-refundable deposit that goes towards your package. You would electronically sign the contract and invoice through email.
IF YOUR WEDDING GOES LONGER THAN EXPECTED, HOW MUCH IS IT PER HOUR?
I will come to you to let you know my time is up. If you would like me to stay longer than that would be $400 more for the hour. I won't stay and just expect you to pay.
WILL YOU PHOTOSHOP US?
Nope. I truly believe my job is to capture my couples as real and raw as possible. Last thing I want to do is making you look unrealistic, fake and barbie-doll like. I can of course get rid of those temporary blemishes, cold sores, you got something on your dress?
HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU INCLUDE?
Each wedding is different every time. The more moments that are unfolding more likely the more images you would receive. I never want to with hold images from your day. It does range from 50-80 edited images an hour. Don't worry, I promise to give you images that truly capture the full day.
Heaven forbids this happens, as it would only happen if it were out of my control (act of god, illness, death, etc) but in this case I would do my best to help find a replacement photographer to take my place that I trust with a similar style, although I’m not legally held to do so. If I can’t make it to your wedding your money will be refunded.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CAN'T MAKE MY WEDDING?
All my travel expenses are included in my wedding packages.This way you don' have to worry about hidden fees or unexpected costs.
FOR THE TRAVEL FEE, HOW MUCH IS IT?
Everything is online, I will email the payments along with the contract. You put your card info and done! Super easy.
HOW DO WE PAY FOR THE COST OF THE WEDDING?
I do not give any raw photos out. Only photos that are edited will be given out to you.
CAN I GET THE RAW IMAGES?
I'm on the same boat as you! However I will make it as fun as possibly, lets play some of your favorite music to make you feel comfortable! By the time of the session you wont feel awkward with me anyway because we will have already grounded a friendship! I shoot most of your wedding day candid, most of the time you wont even know I am there. I just want to make you feel as comfortable as possible. When we do have a portrait session and you need direction, Ill be right there to help you out!
WE ARE WEIRD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, HOW DO YOU MAKE US NOT LOOK SO AWKWARD?
If you have put a deposit down on a date then have move or cancel it, the deposit if non-refundable. A new deposit will need to be made to reserve your new wedding date.
WHAT IF WE NEED TO CANCEL/RESCHEDULE OUR WEDDING?
No, I do not offer discounts.
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS?
I usually can cover a full wedding day without a second shooter. I work much better without one. However, If your getting ready in far separate locations a second shooter may be helpful to capture moments that I can't be in two places at once. Second shooters are $125 per hour- 4 hours minimum.
DO WE NEED A SECOND SHOOTER?
My turnaround time is 6-8 weeks. If you are looking to have your photos back within a week from your wedding this would be a good option. It would be $500 to receive your entire wedding gallery in one week.
DO YOU OFFER RUSH TURNAROUND?
I am a military spouse. Where I live is constantly changing. As of right now I live in Alabama. Soon to be moving to El Paso, Texas in 2023. Due to my life style constantly changing locations, I mainly take travel weddings. This is why my wedding package includes all my travel expenses.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF? WOULD YOU TRAVEL FOR OUR WEDDING?
