Got Questions? Below are answers to top questions asked by clients. Can't find your answer? Please email me and I am happy to help...
Your The Photographer for us?
AWESOME! The next step is to EMAIL us...
WEDDINGS: Please let me know your date so we can check our availability. We can then set-up a video call or meet in person! YAY! Once you select your package, I will send you a contract to sign and instructions on how to pay the retainer. I cannot hold any date for either a portrait or a wedding without both the deposit and contract completed. I can't wait to hear your love story!
PORTRAIT: Please include in your email a few desired dates or time-frame for your portrait session. I will then send you my packages and you can pick which one is best for you. Once we are ready to go. You will pay a deposit to secure your date.
WHEN WILL WE SEE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
WEDDINGS: Because I take such care in making sure all your edited photographs will look great for years to come, completion takes about 6 to 8 weeks. At that time, your online gallery will be made available for you and all your friends and family to see.
PORTRAIT SESSIONS: An online gallery will be available within 2-4 weeks depending on season. Holiday season galleries and photos will be edited and ready within 2 weeks. Rush Delivery is available.
WHY SHOULD WE BOOK YOU ?
Put simply. If our vibe is your vibe then we are the right ones for you! Trust your intuition. I know there are a lot of options but only one us. (: It is important to find a photographer that you vibe with so that there is great synergy and trust when taking your photos.
DO WE GET THE FULL-SIZED DIGITAL FILES TO PRINT & HOW MANY?
Yes you will receive a USB drive with your wedding photo collection. The number of photographs depends on the type of wedding, number of guests, hours of coverage, hours of dancing and so on. My average for an 8 hour day is 600 images. But that again depends on the day itself. If you have more questions about image quantity please email me. I would love to hear more about your wedding.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO OUR FAMILY OR PORTRAIT SESSION?
I always tell my clients you do you! If your family wants to be over the top matchy - matchy ! be it. If you want to wear crazy outfits - do it! If you are color coordinating outfits and would like to look like a unit- I would recommend picking complimentary colors. For example: if mom is wearing red blouse; I would not recommend anyone wearing a clashing color like Orange or purple. Make sense? I will discuss ideas with you and answer any specific questions you have when you book us. You can even snap a photo and send me your outfits.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH DETAILS AND FAMILY GROUP PHOTOS
DO YOU TRAVEL?
My Signifgant other/child is hard to shoot and/or feels akward in front of the camera?
YES! A wedding collection would not be complete without details of your wedding and family photos. I take all the photographs you would expect a wedding photographer to take. I will also provide you of a shot list of what you would like on your wedding day.
Absolutely. We are based in SoCal, Nashville and Boise but travel for destination weddings. Some destinations do require additional costs.
That is what we are here for:) With children, I sometimes bring a bag of treats and toys which I will discuss with you in advance to make sure that you are okay with what I plan to bring.If you are an adult who just hates being in photos or feels uncomfortable in front of the camera , I try to shoot quickly and we take breaks. I try to make the experience painless and fun! My clients are surprised at how easy and relaxed they felt at their shoot. Engagement sessions are a great way to practice being in photos and working with me so that way your wedding photos are much more natural, easy, and fun!
