HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THIS?
I've been shooting for almost 6 years. I dabbled in photography a bit in high school, but wasn't serious until I was in college and started blogging. I taught myself how to use my camera, shot my first wedding by myself, and I'm still lovin' it!
WHAT IS YOUR SHOOTING STYLE?
I want people to see who you really are & that means creating a space where you feel like you can be yourself. So, we go to places that make you feel like you're at home & talk about all of the things you love and people you love - while I'm shooting. Most of the people I talk to tell me they are scared/worried about being too awkward to step in front of a camera, but when you get them focused on something or someone else that they really care about, they tend to forget that I'm actually taking pictures - and that's the best part.
WHAT'S IN YOUR BAG/WHAT DO YOU SHOOT WITH?
My go-to's are the Nikon D750's, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 105mm, 70-200mm, lensbaby composer pro with edge 80 optic.
DO YOU TRAVEL OUT-OF-STATE/COUNTRY?
Of course! If your wedding is out-of-state or out-of-country, I charge for gas mileage/a plane ticket, lodging, and a rental car if necessary. To make it easy on you, I will book all the accommodations myself.
HOW DO I BOOK?
Let's meet up for coffee, lunch, or a facetime date. After chatting, we will talk about how many hours of coverage you'd like and any add-ons. Then I'll send over a personalized contract with all the details you need. Once I receive that + your deposit, you're booked!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO BOOK?
If I have the spot open, it's yours!
DO YOU REQUIRE ANY SORT OF DEPOSIT TO HOLD MY PORTRAIT/WEDDING DATE?
Yes. A deposit is required to secure your date(s) for portraits, weddings, & elopements.
HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT CHOOSING A LOCATION FOR MY SESSION?
It's a team effort. We will work together and make something beautiful happen!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY SHOOT?
Whatever feels like you. If you are still unsure of what to wear, ask me & I'll send you some pin-spiration.
DO YOU NEED A SHOT LIST/PINTEREST IDEAS?
Nope! However, I'm always super grateful to have a list of family members for family photos for my wedding folks.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
NO LATER THAN 6 WEEKS FOR PORTRAIT SESSIONS. 6 - 8 WEEKS FOR WEDDINGS & ELOPEMENTS.
HOW DO I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
All of your edited, high-resolution digital images will be hosted in your personal online gallery, available for you to download & then print anywhere you'd like.
HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU DELIVER?
Portrait sessions usually yield 100-200 images, and elopements/weddings 400-1000. Every session and elopement/wedding is different.
DO YOU OFFER PROFESSIONAL PRINTS OF MY PHOTOS?
Yes! PRINTS ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST AT AN ADDITIONAL COST. However, when you sign your contract, it also includes a print release so that you may choose any lab of your liking.
WHERE ARE SOME PLACES YOU RECOMMEND FOR PURCHASING PRINTS?
ARTIFACT UPRISING, MPIX, WHCC, NATIONS, MILLERS, BAY PHOTO, SHUTTERFLY, SNAPFISH.
CAN I POST MY PHOTOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
Of course! I just ask that you don't crop, edit, or add any filters to them since I've already done all of that for you. Please show some love and tag me when you post!
