Hello! Thank you for considering me to capture your most special moments - I know that you have so many questions about your potential photography session or wedding day coverage, and I've done my best to go ahead and answer some of the most common questions I get about sessions below.
If you don't see the answers you're looking for, please click the link below to contact me directly! I'm happy to talk about any details or answer any questions you have.
How will our images be delivered?
I deliver all of my edited images in an online gallery, which remains live for a month after our session. You can order prints, albums, and other printed items directly through the gallery, or you can download the high resolution version of the images.
Do we have to order prints through you?
Absolutely not. I would love for you to, because I work with an incredible printing service and know that they print my colors and tones exactly as I've shot them; however, you're free to download the high resolution version of your images and print them wherever you choose.
When will I get my photos?
For all portrait sessions, non-wedding events, and branding sessions, I promise delivery within three weeks of our session, although sometimes photos can be delivered as early as a week from our session. All weddings are digitally delivered within a month of the wedding day, and thumb drives/albums are usually delivered within 2-3 months of the wedding date.
How many images will we get from you?
When you inquire about a session, I will give you a general idea of how many images you can expect from our session, but the exact number delivered depends on a variety of factors that are unique to each shoot. With portrait sessions, you'll receive 50+ images. Branding sessions yield 75+ images. Weddings are a guaranteed base of 400 delivered images, and that number can increase substantially based on the number of hours of coverage chosen.
We're not comfortable in front of a camera - will our photos come out looking awkward?
Absolutely not. I consider it a huge part of my job to know how to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and then to style and direct the shoot so that you look relaxed and happy! I've studied posing and directing extensively, so even if you've never been in front of a camera before, I've got your back. I'll work with you to make sure that these photos turn out looking gorgeous and natural.
Will you help me/us with outfit choices?
Definitely! I love helping pick out outfits and accessories, and help my clients take into consideration the location we've chosen as well as the time of year when planning every element of their session.
Do you do boudoir shoots? Where?
Absolutely! Boudoir sessions are offered as part of my wedding packages, but I also offer them as a separate session, and offer boudoir mini-sessions at least once a year. I offer up my home for boudoir sessions, and have a bedroom set up with perfect light and simple design for these sessions. If you'd rather do them in your home, I'm happy to come to you, and will offer advice on how best to get bright natural light in your space.
Do you photograph non-wedding events?
I absolutely do! Shoot me an email and tell me more about this special day - I have a very "real" approach to event photography, so I'm not your girl if you're looking for someone to come and set up a photo booth. But if you're looking for someone to capture special moments and beautiful details, you found the right person and I would be honored to document for you.
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY FAQ
How far in advance do we need to book you?
I book weddings on a first come, first served basis, and only shoot 20 weddings a year in order to ensure that my couples get the highest quality experience. So I recommend that if you know you want me to shoot your wedding, you reach out as soon as you possibly can! But also don't hesitate to reach out with later/last minute requests, I will try my best to make your wedding photo dreams happen.
What is required to book our date?
I require a 30% deposit, either via check or online invoice, and a completed wedding contract to reserve a wedding date.
Do you photograph small weddings or elopements?
I absolutely do! The more loving and intimate, the better! Reach out to me and tell me a little more about your vision, I'll respond with a custom quote within 24 hours
Do you travel for photography?
Quite a bit, yes. I have set travel prices within the Southeast, and then all-inclusive travel photography packages for all weddings and events outside of the Southeast.
Do you need to see our venue before the wedding day?
I do not. If there are specific details you'd like to walk through, I'm more than happy to make a trip out there with you, but I am very experienced at shooting in all lighting situations, and have never once in my career gotten somewhere and realized I couldn't make it beautiful. I also bring along all of the equipment when I photograph weddings, so I'll be ready for whatever you've got!
