What does “book” mean and how do we do it?
“Book” means you have reserved a date with for your shoot, wedding, or event! This entails submitting a 25% deposit and signing an online contract. I send both over to you in one form via email and it is very easy to do! The 75% remainder is not due until the day of your event/shoot.
Will we get ALL the photos you take?
My philosophy is to eliminate the ‘bad’ and give you the rest! With “bad” meaning photos in which the subject is blinking, someone stepped in front of the shot, or I was just testing light! If nothing is “wrong” with the photo, I’ll edit it and deliver it to you!
Can we post our photos on social media?
YES 1000% there are no restrictions when it comes to posting your images! I like it when my clients tag me and my business so that I can see when you post, but, not a requirement!
Can we print our photos?
YES! You will have full printing rights to your photos and all of them are WATERMARK FREE. Print them anywhere you like!
Can we share our photos?
YES! Your online customized gallery will have a sharing ‘link’, and so all you have to do is send the link to anyone you want! You can decide if you want them to just view or be able to print and download your photos, too!
Do you edit all our photos yourself?
YES! I go through each of your photos one by one and edit them!
Can we have the original or RAW photo files?
Delivering an original or RAW file would feel like delivering an unfinished product. the photos go through my system and are carefully looked at to make sure there are no technical errors. They are an unfinished part of our process, and so delivering them would be devaluing my work as an artist and my standard of service to you!
What if it rains?!
We will make a day-of decision to reschedule! Although, I have shot a few sessions playing in the rain and it actually can turn out pretty cute! :)
Engagement Session Questions:
What is an engagement session with you like? Will you pose us?
Ummm FUN! Engagement sessions are completely laid back and casual. I will “guide” you instead of “pose” you, this means that I will give you actions, games to play, things to say to each other, all to get you interacting. The goal is to get you two interacting with each other the entire time so that I can document you as you are. You will never have to ‘think’ about ‘what to do’ because I will prompt you as needed!
We want to book you for our wedding! Do your collections include an engagement session?
Yes! All collections include an engagement session and it is something we HIGHLY recommend taking advantage of! Engagement sessions are the perfect way for me to get to know you and get to know your best actions for the camera. It is also a way for me to teach you a few things so that on your wedding day you know what its like to work together, and you’re completely comfortable!
We have booked you for our wedding and engagement! So when should we take our engagement photos?
I recommend about 4 to 6 months before your wedding date!
What do we wear?!
I am so glad you asked because I have special style guide just for this! You can find that here!
Will you travel? How far?
UMMM ANYWHERE in the WORLD! Just tell me where you need me to be!
Do you always have a second shooter with you?
I do not! I have photographed many weddings solo. I generally recommend purchasing a collection that includes a second shooter if you have over 80 people in attendance, just to make sure I can capture all the pieces of your event!
So I want to book you for my wedding but I do not want any of my photos on social media or on your website, is this something you offer?
Yes! While I love to celebrate my couples by sharing their story on my blog and in my portfolio, I completely understand that social media is not for everyone. We have a Privacy Protection option that means that you are not obligated to sign my Model Release, meaning I legally can not use your photos. Because this option hinders our ability to market, it has a slight up charge, but this is definitely something we can discuss!
How long until we get out photos?
Generally about 6 weeks after your wedding!
Do you offer wedding albums?
Coming soon in 2019 ;)
We post new Instagram stories EVERY DAY! It is where we love to connect with friends and show you the behind the scenes of all that we do!
