HOW DO WE BOOK WITH YOU?
Easy. Fill this LINK out, I'll respond within the hour, and before you know it we will be planning your wedding and sending hilarious GIFs.
DO YOU MEET WITH CLIENTS BEFORE BOOKING? Yes + No. I make sure to put everything you need out there for you to make your best decision. I always schedule a phone call after you inquire and if you need a face to face before booking then I got you! Otherwise, I do my best to share all the things so you can get back to living your life and feeling good about your decision to give us your final rose.
WHAT IS THE RETAINER FEE? $1,000.00 will retain your wedding date.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK? Most brides book anywhere between 9-15 months in advance.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR US TO GET OUR IMAGES? Eight weeks on the dot. I give you the exact date you will receive them. Often times our couples plan a date night around their gallery delivery date.
WHEN IS MY FINAL PAYMENT DUE? Six weeks prior to your wedding date.
ARE YOU INSURED? Heck yes. Through PPA. Your photographer better be insured. Hit me up for my POI.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE? It depends on the amount of coverage you book. I typically rendor 50+ edited images / hour.
WILL WE RECEIVE RAW, UNEDITED PHOTOS? No. I hate to crush your dreams if you thought this was a thing, but it's not. Even if you had the software to pull up the raw images on your computer, we work hard to make sure we give you an entire experience and that includes beautifully edited images.
HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE WILL I NEED? That's something no photographer would know right off the bat. Location, what parts of the day you want documented, travel time, Wedding size, how many family formals you want, all play a roll in how much coverage your truly need. This is why after you inquire I love to set up a quick phone call where I ask all the right questions. I always say, even if we end up not working together, at least we've put in the ground work and you know exactly how many hours you need.
WILL IT ALWAYS BE YOU + YOUR HUSBAND SHOOTING OR WILL I HAVE ANOTHER SECOND SHOOTER? Josh is the main second shooter, YES. But he is in the air force reserves so some weddings will land on his one weekend out of the month. In the event that happens, we have a handful of photographers we LOVE working with and have similar styles to ours and we’ve come to know and trust. Whomever we bring on to replace Josh will 100% be a professional.
DO YOU OFFER OTHER SESSIONS? Yes. I offer engagements, bridal sessions, rehearsal dinner coverage, and boudoir sessions.
CAN I BRING MY PET TO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION? I would be offended if you didn’t.
DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU? Yo girl likes to eat, so YES. But truly, no one likes to have their photo taken while stuffing their face. We take a 25 min break and are fully aware when speeches will begin.
DO YOU HAVE A BACKUP PLAN INCASE YOU ARE SICK OR THERE IS AN EMERGENCY? Of course. I make sure you are covered in all aspects. Five years in and this has never happened, but rest assured you are covered no matter what.
I LOVE YOUR WORK, BUT YOUR OUT OF MY BUDGET, DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS? Budgets are no joke, I get it. I was a bride before I was a photographer so I remember being in your same shoes. If you have to have me, lets talk. I am sure we can both come up with a collection that is just right for you.
MY FIANCE HATES GETTING HIS PICTURE TAKEN. ANY ADVICE?
A lot of men do so he's not alone. But he's in luck, I am an enneagram 8. We are known for being efficient, timely, and quick with the wit. I hate to toot my own horn, but half the time I hear that very statement, I also hear "omg he loved it and had so much fun!" after the session. Even if he still doesn't like photos afterwards, he will still have fun because he's making the girl he loves happy ;)
I’M AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, HELP! Unless you're Gigi Hadid, aren't we all?! I can direct clients till I'm blue in the face, but the second I'm on the other side, I too forget what to do with my hands. Rest easy, I can assure you I never shut up during our session. I am constantly directing and screaming YASS at you, by the end of it, you will have had so much fun, you forgot how awkward it was, scouts honor!
