Hello Loves!

Hopefully this FAQ page answers some of the questions you might have!

As always, though, if you have a question I haven't answered here, please feel free to reach out, K?

How many photos will we get? How long will it be before the photos are delivered?

You can expect 700-1000 photos for a wedding lasting more than 4 hours. The number of photos ranges including whether I have a second shooter, how long we have for portraits, and how long I am shooting overall. The photos are all high-res and fully edited. You also have the option of a black and white copy of every image. Otherwise, I'll make black and white copies as I go, choosing on a photo-by-photo basis.

On average, I deliver galleries in 4-4.5 weeks. If your wedding is during busy season (late July through mid-November) the time might be about 6-7 weeks. It may seem long, but I am a perfectionist, and your wedding (and the other sessions and weddings I am photographing and completing) all deserve the same level of attention and love. And of course, I try to send you sneak peek photos along the way <3

How do you get the photos to us?

Your photos are delivered to you on a USB, which you can pick up, I can bring to you ( if you're local to my area), or I can set sail in a package through the smooth waters of the USPS. You also get an online gallery, which you can use to share your photos, including easily curating them into favorites lists.

Lastly, with package 1 and 2, I provide a personal slideshow which is not only very fun and emotional for me to make (I have, after all, spent a long time with you, your family and your friends at that point), its a fun and emotional “first look” (see what I did there?) at your wedding photos.

Can we have the RAW files or unedited images?

I have a specific style and aesthetic which are (at least I hope) the main reasons you want me as your photographer. For that reason, and my own sanity, I do not give out unedited or RAW files. I put my heart into sorting through and editing your photos for the best and brightest (including bloopers!). You won't be missing out on anything. This is an essential part of the service I provide to you, and honestly (trust me!) those files are no fun.

It's not like cookie dough — photos definitely aren't just as tasty raw.

Is sales tax included in the pricing?

Sales tax is already baked into my pricing sheet, so the pricing you see in my brochure Is accurate to the pricing due.

How do we book you and reserve our date?

When you've chosen the best package for your wedding day coverage and are ready to move forward with booking, let me know! I'll send you an online contract which we'll all sign. I'll also send over an online invoice, where you'll pay your deposit, which is 25% of the total fee. The invoice will also show the rest of your payment schedule. I usually break payment into three or four installments.

What do you shoot with?

I am wielding two Nikon D750s, two backup D610s, a wide angle, an extra wide angle, a badass babe-tastic zoom (for those close up ceremony shots and sneaky reception candids!), a fancy portrait lens, a nifty fifty, and a couple external flashes. I always have three cameras on me, just in case one of them fails, and some extra backup lenses, just in case I accidently throw my other ones in a carafe of orange juice or something equally unfortunate.

I also have extra reception lighting and light stands and a ton of other equipment which will help me be as prepared as possible in any lighting situation. Listen — I totally gotchu.

Can we add a second shooter?

You bet your bottom dollar! They're like, the best. Brilliant Photographer, Support System, People Organizer, Time Saver, Detail Catcher! Plus, two creative minds are always better than one.

I have a few second shooters I work with often — wonderful and professional photographers in their own right — and I'd be delighted to introduce you to them beforehand or send you examples of their work.

Do you have any vendor suggestions?

Sure do! I have many people I love to work with, and I'm happy to share. For example, I know many amazing caterers, cake makers, florists, reception and ceremony venues, dress tailors, jewelers, DJs, musicians, and even some food truck vendors! I even have a whole blog post about it! Just ask, and I’ll direct you to that.

What on earth is a Honeymoon Session?

If you are feeling stressed at the idea of taking a whole hour out of your wedding day to have a wedding portrait session, if you want to forgo a first look and won't have time later in the day, or even if you aren't jazzed about the portrait locations available near your ceremony or reception, I offer an after wedding portrait session option, which I call a Honeymoon Session. Essentially, you both get dolled up again and we go have an amazing time in full regalia in a location of your choosing. You're both more relaxed, you're less worried about keeping your clothes immaculate and your hair spray on fleek (are things still on fleek??), you have no questions to answer or great aunts to corral, and you're both blissfully, fantastically, relievingly married. We can have a great time, be swoony and romantic, be a little more adventurous, and don't have to stick to a timetable. If the light is good, we can stay there in the glow for as long as we want. Pretty amazing, if you're into it.
