Frequently Asked Questions


HOW MANY IMAGES ARE INCLUDED?

Each one of my packages varies in how many images are delivered, but I promise I’ll always include plenty of images of everything I capture. I don’t like to give a cutoff number because I don’t believe in withholding any images from you to get you to pay more like some photographers do. These are your memories, I promise to capture them fully and give you more than enough images to remember this time in your lives.


DO YOU GIVE RAW UNEDITED PHOTOS?

No, as I believe that editing is half the magic that goes into images and without this huge step the images are only halfway done. I promise to never leave any photos out that you’ll want/need, and if you feel I missed delivering a photo, just ask! I’m more than happy to check back through my images and send it over to you. I won’t let you miss out on your memories!


HOW DO PAYMENT SCHEDULES WORK?

I require a $750 retainer to secure your spot on my calendar, and the remaining balance is due a week before your shoot. You can split these payments (up to 3 payments) if you’d like to help make it more affordable. I’m happy to work with your schedule!


WHAT’S YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?

Typically, for sessions it takes 3 weeks or less and weddings take 6 weeks or less.  I try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image needs.


CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP US?

I believe in promoting self love and body positivity, so I don’t alter the way you look other than skin blemishes or anything temporary that would not normally be there (bruise, scrape, acne etc unless you’d like me to keep it the photos). If you’re especially self conscious about something, please let me know as I’ll be sure to be extra aware of that while I’m posing you.


WHAT IF WE NEED TO CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE OUR SHOOT OR WEDDING?

If you’ve already put a deposit down on a date then have to move/cancel it, the deposit is legally non-refundable and a new deposit will have to be made in order to hold your new date.


WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT TO OUR WEDDING?

Heaven forbids this happens, as it would only happen if it were out of my control (act of god, illness, death, etc) but in this case I would do my best to help find a replacement photographer to take my place that I trust with a similar style, although I’m not legally held to do so. If I can’t make it to your wedding your money will be refunded.


WHAT IF THERE’S BAD WEATHER?

I always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way, as it’s beautiful and unique in photos. If it is harsh enough that it would make for a rough time at our shoot and I can reschedule (or ruin my gear), then we totally will!


DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS?

No. It isn’t fair to all my full paying clients to offer discounts.
