• What makes you different than other photographers?
I work hard to create a real connection to my couples so that I can capture their relationships accurately and honestly. Who you are together is so important, and I believe making you both feel as comfortable as possible is the best way to do that!
• Will we get the RAW files?
I do not give RAW files, but I give high resolutions jpegs. Raw files aren't usable without the right programs and equipment, take too much space, and they aren't the finished product! I only give my best, and that means finished images!
• How soon after the wedding will we receive our photos?
In my contract, I ask for 90 days. However, it's incredibly rare I ever take that long! I usually take 6-8 weeks to fully edit your images, if not far sooner. I want to get them to you as quickly as possible for you, your friends, and your family to enjoy and cherish forever.
• Can I get a second photographer?
Absolutely! In fact, I always recommend it. Not only do you get more images, but more moments captured and another set of eyes on every detail of your day. I only work with the best in the biz. Check out the pricing page for more information.
• How do we reserve our date?
A signed contract and the retainer (retainers can be different amounts, depending on the chosen package).
• Do we have to order prints through you?
Nope! But I highly recommend it. I only print through the highest quality print labs, that have equipment made specifically for photographers. I also offer free additional edits on any and all prints ordered through me, so that's a bonus!
• How much time should we plan in our wedding day timeline for family formals?
It depends on how many people are in your family, and how many people you want involved! If you're wanting it focused on your immediate family, it will take far less time. I am happy to help you plan the perfect wedding day timeline--don't hesitate to ask and we'll customize it for everything you want and need!
• What kind of lighting do you work in?
I am experienced in all lighting scenarios. From candle-light to dance floors, bright daylight to stormy days, I know how to capture it all beautifully and fully embrace what it is!
