Your Special Day
Your big day is one of the most important moments you will ever plan for (besides what you want for dinner! haha) And I’m here to help ease any stress you may have so that we can make sure your special day is captured perfectly!
My wedding packages being at $2,500 with a variety of packages from there depending on your wants/needs for your wedding day. I know finances play a huge role in planning your wedding day and that choosing a photographer that is right for you can be quite overwhelming, but remember I want to be more than just your wedding photographer, I want to be your friend, someone you can count on before, during & after your I do’s. So take a look at my portfolio, read through my about me, get a feel for who I am and if you think I’m the one 😉 please shoot me a message so we can discuss further details! I want to hear about your love story, your absolute must-haves captured, and all the in-betweens so we can see what package would suit you best! So give me the deets & I will be happy to send over a pricing guide for a more detailed overview of my wedding packages!
I think knowing how I work as a photographer is very important for you to get a sense of what to expect so that you’re prepared to, ya know, HAVE A GOOD FREAKIN’ TIME! 😉
My approach is simple – Adventuring with you and capturing you & your loved ones being yourselves genuinely & candidly is always my goal. Achieving my goal is also simple – Communication is key. I went to college for Communications so naturally I’m a talker & I think it’s extremely important in my business. I want us to have a good relationship before you get in front of my lens. The more comfortable we all are the better our session together will be!
At the very beginning, when you first inquire with me, I will be asking questions & seeing if we’re a good fit. If we move forward with booking, I will send you a questionnaire specific to your session (weddings included). This will help me get to know you & your loved ones better & be fully prepared to give you a great experience during your session. I will also help you each step of the way from location choice, to wardrobe options, and anything else you’d like to cover. I do have some frequently asked questions I’m going to answer for you here to help you out, and if there’s anything I haven’t covered please feel free to ask me when you fill out my contact form.
Fine Print + Extras
- Each session requires a 50% non-refundable retainer to save the date of your session. When you book a session with me, I will email you your contract to review and the retainer will need to be paid in full the day you book your session. I accept PayPal, Venmo, Cash or Check. Final payment can be paid in full either before or on the day of your session. No session is booked/reserved until the 50% non-refundable retainer has been paid along with the singed contract.
- Each session will come with a password protected online viewing gallery where you can order high quality prints of your images as well as download them directly to your computer and other devices for easier access.
- Wardrobe guidance can be provided for any session. Wardrobe is a huge part of bringing your session to life. Inspiration will be sent to you, and I like to communicate wardrobe leading up to your session. This will be discussed after booking – but please feel free to send me any outfit ideas you have, and I will give you my honest opinion, and help you coordinate your wardrobe to the best of my ability.
- If you would like professional hair and makeup services for your session this can be provided at an additional price. Please let me know if you will be needing these services and I will provide you with more information.
- If hiring me for an event such as fundraisers, birthday parties, bridal or baby showers, etc – I charge an hourly rate of $400 which includes 35-45 images per hour, all images color corrected with minor editing with a password protected online gallery and print release.
Short answer- No, but I do feel like I should explain why. I pride myself in the work I do during your session, but even more so after your session. Post-processing (editing) takes hours upon hours (especially for weddings), and it is how I bring your beautiful photos to life. Giving you unedited images would not be the best representation of my art/work and honestly the finished product is what you pay for & what you will ultimately love the most. IF for some reason you truly want the unedited versions, they can be purchased for X amount which can be discussed after your session.
You will be receiving a password protected online gallery for you & your loved ones to view & download your images as well as the option to purchase high quality prints, canvases, albums, etc. You will also receive a print release in case you would like to print elsewhere.
Lighting plays a big factor in your images. I personally love working with natural light, so either sunrise/early morning or late afternoon/evening near sunset, but if there are times you have to work around that may not be around those times don’t worry! I will make magic for you at any time of the day! Just keep in mind that most of the work you see from my portfolio was either taken during sunrise or sunset – so if you cannot shoot at those times then the lighting in the images will look a bit different.
That will depend on what we will be capturing. Once you decide on your session, I will assist you with wardrobe ideas and examples for inspiration. Wardrobe plays a big factor in how your images come out, so I do like to discuss your outfit ideas with you prior to your session and help you decide if you’re having trouble. I highly suggest not wearing big prints such as stripes/polka-dots or clothing with letters or phrases on them (unless it goes specifically with your session i.e. milestone sessions).
I know life happens and sometimes we get sick or the weather doesn’t play in our favor, etc. When you book with me, I keep my eye on the radar days & even hours leading up to your session. Some really stormy days end in great sunsets & windy weather also helps add character to your photos. I rarely have to reschedule due to a rainy day, but if luck isn’t on our side & it’s down pouring at the time of your session we will reschedule. If you need to reschedule for anything other than weather, then I allow 1 reschedule without a rescheduling fee. Anything after that a $50 rescheduling fee will need to be paid for your second rescheduling date. If you have to cancel completely, I will send a cancellation agreement and your retainer is still non-refundable.
First and foremost, you should bring an open mind and a happy heart! There will be times that I may ask you to do something that may seem odd to you (like get in a bush or get in the ocean), but I promise you the more open you are to my direction the better images we can bring to life! I love being adventurous and bringing creativity to all of my shoots so please don’t hesitate to step out of the box and feel free to throw different ideas at me as well! For family sessions I highly suggest if you have small children to bring any snacks or toys to bribe them with and to occupy them so that we are able to get good images. I do my very best to keep children interested and engaged in the photographs being taken given the parents/families help. This goes hand in hand if you bring any family pets with you for your session. In regards to props/accessories please feel free to bring what you would like to incorporate in your session. I do not provide props, but when necessary or asked I will bring what I have.
I love to connect with my clients on a personal level. I work best and I believe you will, too, with less distractions. Of course, there may be people around at your session, but I think not having someone there you know personally following us around will help ensure we can capture your genuine selves & have the best time possible. If you do bring your fur babies though, I do suggest to my clients to bring a helpful hand with them, but typically once we get those shots with them out of the way I’ll have whoever is there to help bring them elsewhere so I can focus on just the two of you (or family).
The title of that question should make you laugh, because it was written like that on purpose lol. As a woman I know how tough it is to love ourselves. Society makes it very hard & social media filters now-a-days with women altering their bodies & highly editing their photos we are constantly wondering what “beauty” is anymore. What I can tell you though, without a shadow of a doubt – you ARE beautiful just the way you are. With that being said – No, I do not alter my client’s bodies in Photoshop. I do, however, edit out blemishes, smooth skin, take out distractions in photos & help you look your best by giving you wardrobe help prior to your session. IF for some reason you absolutely want something altered, it will be X amount per edit which can be discussed after your session/wedding.
No. As you see in your package details you will be receiving a certain amount of images for each package. If you book the basic package you will have the opportunity to choose your favs and purchase any extra for $15/per image. You also are not allowed to edit or alter images in any way other than cropping which will be listed in your contract of services.
I pride myself in my editing and taking time to perfect your images. Regular session turn-around time is up to 2-4 weeks depending on how many sessions were before you. Weddings take at least 6-8 weeks depending on how many sessions/weddings were before yours. I will give you an estimate at the time of your session/wedding, but within the first 48 hours I will share a few sneak peeks from your session/wedding to hold you over until they are all finished.
If you’re ready to get adventurous with me, let your hair down, get silly, share your heart with me and capture all the perfectly imperfect moments then I’m your girl! Give me all the deets! I can’t wait to hear what you envision for your next session or wedding day.
