Will there be a second shooter?
Yes! All my photo collections include a second shooter for the duration of your wedding coverage. I select professional photographers who have both my trust and a similar shooting style to provide your additional coverage.
What is your retainer fee?
I require a retainer fee of 25% of your chosen collection, as well as a signed contract, to officially hold your date. That way, we both know we're on the same page.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
I understand that sometimes weddings go over schedule, and I won't charge you extra if your sparkler exit is 15 minutes late (it happens!). However, anything beyond that will be added to your invoice at a rate of $125/hourly.
How will I receive my photos?
I will upload all your edited photos to an online gallery on Pixieset.com! The gallery will never expire and will arrive in your email inbox within 6 weeks after your wedding day. Engagement photos arrive within 3 weeks after your session.
Can I get my photos on a flash drive?
Certainly! I offer 16 GB wooden flash drives for $30 each. I also offer gorgeous wooden keepsake boxes to store the flash drives in for $75 each. Just email me and let me know how many you want!
Do you shoot destination weddings?
I do! Just provide me and my second shooter each with transportation, a place to sleep the nights before and after your ceremony, and a daily $25 meal stipend.
Do I have to order prints through you?
Not at all! All the photo collections include the right to print (for personal use) wherever you like. However, there is a printing feature attached to your gallery, so it's a breeze to order your prints, canvases, holiday cards and more.
Can I bring my pet to the session?
Of course! Just have someone on hand to wrangle them during and after your session, so you can focus on your love instead of worrying about your furry buddy.
I don't like having my picture taken. How painful will this process be?
My goal is to capture the essence of you and your love. You don't need to worry about anything except focusing on him or her. I'll offer you some prompts to get things started, but I'm always paying attention to the ways you naturally engage with each other. This is all about you two being you, because that's what matters.
When is the best time to take outdoor photos?
This is an excellent question! Unless it's a cloudy day, the best time is within the two hours after sunrise or before sunset. You'll hear artists refer to this as "golden hour," because of the stunning, rich, yummy light during this time. For this reason, I strongly recommend scheduling outdoor portraits after 3 pm in fall/winter and after 5 pm in spring/summer. If your reception takes place during the evening golden hour, I love to take newlyweds outside for a brief sunset shoot. Your guests won't have time to miss you, and you will love those dreamy golden photos of you and your babe!
