A: This is one of the most frequently asked questions we get. All of our collections include a complimentary engagement session, and online image gallery. We also spend time putting together your custom timeline and shot list for your wedding. Additional add-ons include more time, an assistant photographer, and albums.
Upon booking your date with us, you will also receive access to an exclusive, 20+ page resource guide, that provides engagement session prep, wedding day tips and a preferred vendor list.
A: Everyone thinks they’re not photogenic, and that is A.O.K. I personally don’t like being in front of the camera either. During your engagement session, we take the time to get to know one another. We love learning how you two interact in front of the camera and are able to better understand the best way we can photograph you to ensure everything looks natural and not forced. There may be some tickling involved, running around holding hands, or practicing your first dance; whatever we do, I guarantee you will not want the session to end. We also play music during your session, we can blast your favorite spofity playlist!
A: All of our collections are solo, but you do have the option to add on an additional photographer. I recommend an additional photographer if your wedding party and/or family is large because of the time it takes to get everyone together and organized. The second shooter is often helpful in organizing everyone and gathering those in photos. However, in 2021 we had a total of 30 weddings, 29 of which were photographed completely solo.
A: Your online gallery will be delivered 6-8 weeks after your wedding day. With your online gallery you have the ability to download the images, share your gallery with family and friends, as well as order high quality prints and products shipped right to your door!
A: Absolutely! You can view some galleries here.
A: Yes, we do! All weddings outside of our 1 hour range are custom to include travel expenses such as mileage, hotel and flight fees.
A: Yes! We just ask that you not edit, crop, or add filters to the images per our contracts. We love when you share your images especially when you tag us!
A: At this time we do not. We feel that our pricing reflects the quality we provide for my clients. Wedding photography is an investment and the best way to remember your wedding.
A: All wedding dates are booked on a first-committal basis. In order to give each of our clients personal attention, we take a limited number of weddings each year. Dates are secured once we receive a signed contract and retainer payment.
A: No, and here’s why. Photography is art. Many artist have their style that usually reflects them as a person. I have spent years finding my style, as much as I want to please everyone, I won’t change my editing style per request. I do have several great recommendations that may better fit your style.
