FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Hopefully most of your questions are answered on this list but, if they aren't, feel free to send me an email and ask me anything!
WILL YOU TRAVEL FOR MY WEDDING / do you do destination weddings?
Yes yes yes!!! I don't want distance to be a barrier if we're a good fit! Send me a message about your plans for your wedding or elopement and we can set up a call to talk more about what you need! All I require in addition to my normal rates is accommodation coverage (flight, airbnb, + uber).
what is required to book you as our photographer?
First I ask that you check in with me via email to make sure I still have your date available and then set up a time to chat with me about your wedding! This way we can see if we're a good fit for each other. After that all goes well, a signed contract and 50% retainer fee are due up front to save your date with the remaining balance due a day before your wedding!
What is your style of photography?
I describe my photographic style as organic, moody, and intimate. Organic because I am super inspired by beautiful landscapes and surrounding my couples in nature. Moody because I want people to feel something when they look at my images. I want my couples to be completely transported back to that moment every time they look at an image from their wedding day. Intimate because I'm in love with capturing those quiet soft moments in your relationship that other people don't normally see.
Help! I'm shy in front of cameras!
Okay saaaame. But, you don't have to worry because all I need from you is to be totally yourself and I'll make sure you look good no matter what! Part of my job is to make you feel comfortable and most of my clients don't have any experience in front of the camera so you are not alone!
Should we do an engagement session?
Yes yes yes!! I always recommend that my couples have an engagement session before the wedding because it gives us a chance to get to know each other and that makes the images so much more magical on your wedding day. You'll feel way more comfortable being intimate and emotional in front of me if we actually become friends first.
HOW LONG UNTIL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
Your online gallery will be emailed to you approximately 6-8 weeks from your wedding date! If it was a portrait session you'll receive your photos within 2 weeks of the shoot date.
Should we prepare a wedding shotlist for you?
No need! I will be covering all of the details, moments, and events for as long as I'm there! I will ask you beforehand if there are a few special requests you have in mind so I can try my best to make them happen! I like to keep this list short though so I can focus on capturing the in-between moments too. The only shotlist I'll ask for is a family focused one, which I'll walk you through when you book!
WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
As soon as you're ready! Typical brides book me about 8-12 months in advance so if you're serious about having me as your photographer, I'd reserve your date ASAP! I work on a first come, first serve basis and once the deposit is paid your wedding date is fully reserved. I cannot hold dates for you without the deposit and signed contract.
Can we meet up?
Yes!!! It's a requirement for me to meet couples or at least chat on the phone before finalizing booking! I'm going to be capturing a super intimate and special part of your lives and I want to make sure we like each other before signing any contracts! Let's grab tea if you're local or FaceTime if you're not so you can tell me about you and your cutie and aalll the wedding details! I can't wait to meet yoooou!
