QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
How will I receive my files? Do I get a print release?
Your gallery is delivered into your email through a personalized online gallery. Your photos will be available for a year, but I encourage you to back these babies up sooner than later! & YES. I encourage you to print them!! Nothing is more satisfying than seeing yourself in print.
How long does it take to receive our images?
Weddings take 8-12 weeks & engagements take 4-6 weeks! Great art takes time. Slow & steady wins the race. I want to make sure I take an adequate amount of time reviewing & editing each one. 🙂
Will you keep my photos private?
I love showcasing my work as an artist because it draws others into those moments and it pushes couples to reach out for more information. When I show off weddings/sessions I love, I get more inquires like it. That’s how I survive LOL. It’s the best way I can market myself and continue to grow my business. By not being able to show my work, I’m at a loss of revenue. Therefore, I charge a loss of revenue fee and exclusivity fee for couples who want to keep their photos private and offline to makeup for at least one potential wedding that I won’t be able to book because those images are now hidden. Thank you for understanding.
Can I have the RAW files or unedited images?
Why is wedding photography so expensive?
There’s so much done behind the scenes. It’s not just the number of hours I’m there shooting your wedding. It’s the amount of time I spend emailing/talking/meeting with you, coordinating with your planner, & preparing for your wedding. Then, I drive to and from your wedding, work for 8+ hours, & over a period of DAYS I’m culling, editing, retouching, creating previews, & delivering a final gallery. So I end up spending 5x the amount of time before and after your wedding than the actual time I spend at your wedding! Not to mention, insurance, expensive gear, monthly software subscriptions, and feeding three large breed dogs. We all want to make a living here.
How many images can I expect?
For non-weddings, 40-60 images. For weddings, I shoot roughly 50-100 images an hour.
How many outfits can I bring?
Bring your whole closet!! Seriously, bring some of your favorite outfits. Anything and everything that makes you feel YOU. When you show up we can look over all of the options and figure out what looks best with the location and your “vibe”.
How can I book?
First, holla at your girl so we can discuss pricing information and get to meet over a cup of coffee (or beers!). Once you’ve made a decision to book me, all I need from you is a signed contract and 50% non-refundable deposit to secure your date with me! Leaving the remaining balance due three weeks before your wedding.
Do you offer videography?
Hell yeah!! Videography is currently an add on to my services! If you’re wanting video included in your package, make sure to let me know!!
Can I exchange the Complimentary Engagement Session for bridals or extra hours of coverage?
An engagement session is “complimentary” and not shown in the price because it’s the best opportunity for me to hang out with you before your wedding date, therefore it can’t be exchanged for anything else. However, I would love to add anything to your package if you’re interested!
