My Personal AMA- Ask Me Anything!
Will YOU be our wedding photographer if we book with you?
Yes, yes, yes! Rest assured that the person who's name and photo you see on this website and who you talk to through emails and phone calls will be your lead wedding photographer, barring any serious or life-threatening scenarios. I will be accompanied by a 2nd shooter who will be as equally as awesome as I am so you guys are in good hands.
How long will it take for us to see our photos?
Do you offer custom wedding albums?
Will you direct or pose us or do you just let us do our own thing?
Wedding galleries are delivered within 4-5 weeks from your wedding date (with some sneak peeks on social media sooner!). I keep my turnaround times reasonable enough for me to take my time choosing and editing the best images from your wedding day without making you guys pull your hair out from the suspense! I was a bride not too long ago so I understand that eagerness to see the final edits.
I do and they are gor-GEOUS if I do say so myself. With leather or linen cover options, these albums have the timeless style that your wedding photos will have and the flat lay paper makes it easier to flip through without breaking the spine. When you ask me about the albums I'll send over a cover option guide along with full details of how we will create the perfect album together (don't worry, I do most of the heavy lifting!).
I'll get hands on when you're like "What do I do with my hands?!" Seriously, do they go in my pocket or on his chest or what? I give light direction throughout the portrait session time of your wedding day but other then that, I sit back (figuratively) and let you and your guests DO YOU. Even if you don't notice me, I'll be there snapping away, capturing those natural moments throughout your day.
Do we get the RAW (unedited) files?
While I don't limit the number of edited images I deliver to my couples, I do not give anyone RAW files and the reason is simple. When you book me to photograph your wedding, you are booking me not only for my in-camera skills, but also my editing skills and vision. If you trust me enough to book me, then you trust that I will not withhold any hidden gems from you ever!
Can we print our own photos?
Absolutely! I do make it super easy to order prints directly from the gallery I deliver your photos on but if you'd like to bring them someplace else or maybe make a calendar or coffee mug for Mom, you have every right to do so. Every package comes with print rights, meaning you have free range to print to your heart's delight.
What's the booking process like?
$1000 deposit and a signed contract to hold the date and that's it. Pop the champagne!-you just got yourself a wedding photographer!
