Ask me everything
Always! I have 2 Canon R5's and 3 lenses as well as 2 Canon 5d Mark Iv's as my backups. I also carry extra
memory cards & batteries! After our session is complete, the photos are immediately backed up to
three different drives and I hang onto the memory card that I shot the session with until the gallery is delivered so that nothing ever happens to them. Rest
assured your images are always safe with me.
Yes! In order to secure your date & time, I require a non-refundable
50% retainer. This cost also goes towards the purchase of new memory
cards, back up flashes, a second shooter, and travel fees to help better prepare me for your session.
My turnaround time is 8-12 weeks for weddings and 3-4 weeks for regular sessions! Art is never rushed and so I would not want to rush through the editing process on your photos, therefore the turnaround time being a few months! These are forever photos, so the wait is worth it! I promise.
I will give you a price estimate of my travel fees which depending on the distance will include mileage fee, hotel stay, and/or car rental fee. I book all of the travel, myself! So it's one last thing you worry about. And I also cover the rest (food,
gas, etc.) All of these travel fees will be on the contract upon signing so
there are no surprises on your end.
Things can be unpredictable in this day and age! Reschedules can most
definitely be accommodated with open availability. I do my absolute
best to move things around and be flexible for you. If you decide to
cancel the wedding, the retainer will unfortunately not be refunded.
Rain happens! I will usually keep an eye out for the forecast but if it
does predict rain, I would definitely recommend that there is a backup plan in case the ceremony or reception is outdoors. I carry a few clear umbrellas with me as well so if we do take outdoor pictures, it will still turn out really beautiful! Unless you're down to have a Notebook rainy scene
photoshoot, then we can definitely reschedule instead!
Not to worry! I will pose & guide you in every direction. I don't
expect you to be supermodels. Believe it or not, even I feel awkward at times in front of a camera! During our session, I will play music & give you easy prompts on what to do. After all, the
way I look at it is you're on a date & I'm just third wheeling with a
camera! So just be yourselves!
Yes! In fact, I have an entire Wedding Handbook that I’ll send you full
of tips to set yourself up for the most ideal environment to get the best photos. I’ll also help you
create your entire photo timeline to make sure the day runs seamlessly
and we have time for all the photos you’ll ever need while still enjoying your day!
