HERE'S THE DEAL
Hiring a wedding photographer is a big deal, and I'd like to be yours. You're putting a ton of trust in the person with the camera to capture all of the moments and people that are important to you on the most important day of your life and I selfishly want you to have beautiful photos.
It's a massive responsibility capturing moments that you'll one day be sharing with your children's children, so near or far, let's make photos!
Do you offer Engagement Sessions?
Yes! Engagement Sessions are more like hang out sessions. Establishing a connection with your photographer is super important, so I value these sessions just as much as you do! They give you the opportunity to get comfortable being in front of my camera, and they give me the opportunity to get to know you better. It's always best to not have a complete stranger taking your photos on your wedding day, right?
We’ve never done this before, sooo what do we do?
Good news! You’re not alone! I’d love to help in any way that I can so that your wedding day is the best ever and you guys get gorgeous photos! I help with things like finding which Collection best fits your day, as well as your talking with you through your timeline to make sure your day runs as smooth as possible and we’ll be shooting in the best light.
What is an "Unplugged Wedding"?
I could go into great detail here. This article pretty much sums it up.
How many hours do we need?
In the 5+ years that I’ve been photographing weddings, I’ve found that somewhere between 7 and 9 hours is the sweet spot. 7 hours for weddings that are on the smaller side, and 9 hours for your standard wedding day. Most of my clients book my 9-hour Collection and I’ve found that it’s the perfect amount of time to cover everything from Getting Ready all the way up to your Grand Exit at the end of the night.
Do we need a second photographer?
It really depends on how you plan your day. For the most part, I shoot solo - but when it comes to having to be in two places at once, that’s when a second shooter comes into the conversation. If you simply want more coverage and more angles to capture all of moments throughout your day, booking a second shooter is a solid move!
What are your prices?
Wedding coverage starts at $2,995. Most couples spend between $3,200 and $4,000 on their Wedding Collection. I offer 5-, 7-, 9-, and 12-hour Collections - if you don’t see that something fits, we can customize things to fit your day.
How do we book?
First things first, get in touch to see if your date is available! If we're in the clear, we'll work together on figuring out which Collection fits you and your day. A 50% non-refundable retainer and signed contract locks in your date, and the remaining balance is due 14 days before your event date. As soon as your retainer comes in, I’ll sign and finalize your contract and we’re all set!
Do you travel?
Heck yeah! I’d love to join you wherever your wedding is going down. You’ll get a quote up front that includes travel costs and I’ll arrange all the details on my end to save you the headache. I also do this to make sure I have enough lead time to get there just in case there are any delays. I love shooting in new places, so near or far, let’s make photos!
I only accept check and cash - call me old school, but all those nifty companies charge $$$ to use their platforms.
What are your turnaround times?
Typical turn around time for weddings is 6-8 weeks, engagement sessions are 2-4 weeks. Albums and prints are excluded from this timeframe.
How do we get our photos?
Your Collection is delivered in hi-res through a personalized and password-protected online photo gallery. From there you can download your images directly to your computer or smartphone, as well as order prints/canvases right from your gallery. You can also share your gallery with friends and family by sending them the website link. You'll be provided a password and download code upon delivery so your images are nice and secure.
Do you offer Wedding Albums?
I do! It's a collaborative effort. I'm a firm believer in having something tangible To Have & To Hold (see what I did there..?) from your wedding day. You can find more information on Wedding Albums HERE.
Can we order Prints through you?
For sure, and I encourage it. Your wedding photos deserve professional quality printing. I use a company called WHCC for prints, and they definitely pass the test - I have prints of my own hanging around my house, I had make sure you're getting the best quality to hang in yours.
