Can you hold my date for me?
Until a contract has been signed by the couple and the retainer has been paid, your date is not yet reserved with me. Due to high volume of inquiries, I do not hold dates without those two things.
Are you insured?
Yes, I most definitely am insured and provide proof to the venue by preparing a Certificate of Insurance named to each venue for your specific date.
Can you Photoshop us?
I do not offer photoshopping in my photography services because we are who we are and I believe in self-love! I want to show you how naturally beautiful you both are without any photoshopping. However, I will 100% remove those pesky pimples!
Do you deliver every photo you capture?
Part of my job is to go through the thousands of images we take throughout the day and pull out the best ones that you will love. So, my answer is "no". However, I would never trash a good image in order to stay within a limited amount of deliverable images. In fact, I often deliver more than are even promised because it's so hard to choose my favorites!
How do wedding payments work?
I break wedding payments up into 3-4 equally divided payments. The first payment is your non-refundable retainer to reserve the date. All payments are due one week prior to the wedding day. I can accept bank transfers, checks and venmo transactions.
How do session payments work?
I break session payments up into 2-3 equally divided payments. The first payment is your non-refundable retainer to reserve the date. All payments are due one week prior to the session date. I can accept bank transfers, checks and venmo transactions.
How many edited images will we receive?
I like to approximate you will receive anywhere from 50-150 edited images per hour you book. On average, if you book an 8 hour wedding day, you will receive at least 800+ edited images. Similarly, a 2 hour session would average to 200+ edited images. I always throw a few B&W images in there too!
How do I prepare for a session with you?
I will send over a What To Wear Guide filled with a gold mine of information including outfit coordinating, complimenting with the colors of the environment, what to pack, activity and location selecting, makeup/hair and more. This will be sent over once you book a session. I also recommend checking out The Photo Journal where you can find even more Tips & Advice. I gotchu!
What is always included in every wedding package?
Every wedding package includes a location scout prior to the wedding day, travel time up to 1.5 hours each way by car, online gallery, print release rights, unlimited digital downloads, the exclusive Wedded Logo and an Heirloom Keepsake Box.
What do you charge in travel fees for destination locations?
Destination Weddings and Elopements receive 20% off their selected package and are required to cover the following travel expenses: (a) Airfare costs, (b) Car Rental costs and (c) 2-3 Night Stay depending on the location and package selected.
What is a wedding weekend?
The best thing since sliced bread! This includes pre- or -post wedding day coverage. Many couples these days like to have activities with their guests while everyone is in town! For example, Kevin and I are getting married at a camp and will be having pre-wedding activities like canoeing, volleyball and a bonfire the day/night before with our closest friends and family.
