Q & A
How would you describe your style?
My style is best described as photojournalistic/documentary. You put so much thought and work into your day, I want to be able to capture every bit of it as you envisioned and as it happens. It's a collaboration of my eye and your vision. Less posed, more real moments. (Don't worry, I'll guide you through some badass portraits that feel like you too!)
When can I expect to get my photos?
For weddings, you’ll get a few sneak peeks the day after your wedding. I want you to have something on the heels of such a big day! Depending on the season, typical delivery for the rest of your images is 6-10 weeks after your date. Rush delivery of 2 weeks is now available for a fee and must be arranged in advance of your wedding date. For engagement sessions, the turnaround is 1-2 weeks.
How will I get my photos? Do I get a print release?
You'll get your images via digital download from an online gallery link that I send to you. Your gallery is hosted for up to 6 months but I remind you to download your gallery as soon as you get it! Back it up back it up back it up! I no longer offer USB drives with your package to save on costs to you AND because I've found that people rely on them too much to preserve their photos. USB drives DO NOT last forever! Good quality prints however, will last you your lifetime. PRINT YOUR LEGACY. I encourage this and give you a personal print release so that you can take them wherever you'd like to print.
How many photos will be delivered?
Every wedding is different from locations to the details you put into it. For a typical 8 hour wedding day, I have delivered 600-800 edited images. It’s definitely quality over quantity when it comes down to it but I don’t hold back any great moments. If it’s there, you get it!
Wedding day timeline: where do I start with this?? Ahhhhhh!
I LOVE figuring out the timeline of the day with you so let's do this together to make sure we are fitting in everything you need and want while making sure the day still has some breathing time to enjoy your moments! If you have a wedding coordinator, they may take on that role for you but, regardless, my biggest advice is to start figuring out your CEREMONY START TIME first and then work around that.
+ TIP ON CEREMONY START TIMES: Google your wedding date sunset time (enter month, day, year, location, and "sunset time"). Whether your ceremony is indoor or outdoor, you don't want to get caught in the dark. If you want a daytime wedding but choose a ceremony time too late in the day, it could be too dark for your ceremony and/or portraits and you won't get what you're expecting. Typically a ceremony 1.5-2 hours before sunset is safe.
How do we book?
After we've made sure that we’re the right fit for each other, a signed contract and 30% non-refundable deposit reserves your date and makes us official!

Do you do family sessions?
Yes! I do focus on couples and weddings for the most part and try to block out weekends for those but during slower wedding seasons, I try to fit in requests for family and senior sessions when I can. Just ask! If I'm not available for your timeframe, I always have a list of other photographers I love that I can refer you to.
