How long have you been doing this?
My dad was a full time wedding photographer - I literally grew up doing this. Under my own name in a professional capacity, I have been doing this since 2017.
How many photos do we get?
This is a tricky one. For an event, I estimate 70-80 photos per hour (so approximately 600-700 photos for an 8 hour wedding). This of course varies if we're just doing headshots or a 30-minute mini shoot. Best way to get an estimate of what to expect is to contact me directly :)
How do we get our photos?
Your photos will be delivered to you via an online gallery. Once delivered, you are free to gawk, cry, love, print, and share with all of your friends
Do you retouch photos?
I will adjust lighting, color, and any obvious imperfections in your photos (damn you, photobombers). Upon request, I can apply additional skin retouching such as fixing flyaway hairs/acne/scars etc, though additional fees may apply.
Whats your turn around time?
For an average shoot of one hour or less, I estimate 1-2 weeks turnaround. Weddings average 4-6 weeks. If necessary, I am also able to expedite your photos for an additional fee, based on availability.
How do we book you?
Easiest way is to email me directly. Tell me what the photos are for/what you plan to use them for, when you need them by, and any other pertinent information. I respond to all emails within 24 hours, most under 12.
Can you help us with planning?
YES! I have assisted couples with anything from planning the timeline to their wedding day, to creating their programs and welcome signs. Whatever I can do to assist, I am here for you.
How far out do you book?
I am currently accepting bookings through all of 2022 and into 2023.
What should we do for an engagement session?
I will request some sample images that you and your partner like ahead of our time together. This gives me an idea of the style that you both like, and will guide me in providing options for you. That way when our session time comes, all you have to do is show up, relax, smile, and have a great time - I'll take care of the rest.
What should we wear?
Honestly, whatever you want as long as you're happy with it. General wisdom suggests avoiding any garments with large logos, distracting patterns, or something that's overly distressed/torn, but if it's the look you're going for, I'm happy to advise.
