Frequently Asked Questions


WHY DO YOU CHARGE WHAT YOU CHARGE?

A wedding photographer does so much more than just show up to your day and click a button! We plan with you those months leading up to your big day, we create timelines and answer questions, we show up and put our very best creative foot forward. We spend the entire week before your wedding thinking about you, talking with your coordinator and preparing for it. We buy expensive gear to make sure your photos are beautiful and of the highest quality, and purchase software to make your booking process and downloading experience a cinch. We see things that the common folk wouldn't see on your day and capture it well. We are the coordinator the first half of your wedding day to make sure we are on time and get all those photos you're excited about having. We use our skill to determine what light will make you look the most beautiful. We stay up late with you, and travel home at late hours in the night. We sort through thousands of images and edit each one by hand, putting our heart into each edit. We love you and support you and put our everything into your experience. 


WHAT KIND OF SESSIONS DO YOU OFFER?

I love to photograph families as well as weddings, and couples, and I also offer intimate sessions for those entering the marital stage or want some quiet, one on one time captured with their honey.


WHAT ABOUT DEPOSITS?

A deposit of 50% is required to secure your wedding date.
Your final payment is due 2 weeks prior to your wedding.

IF THERE IS A BREAK IN THE SCHEDULE WHERE PHOTOS DON’T NEED TAKEN, DO WE STILL PAY FOR THAT TIME?

Yes. As long as I am at your wedding, I’m on the clock.
Rest assured though, even during “break times” I am actively working to get photos of details, candid photos of you and your guests, or gearing up for the next event in day.


DO YOU HELP WITH TIMELINES?

YES. About a month or so before your wedding, we will discuss (over email or coffee) the general plan for the day. I will help you to set up a schedule for the day based off your ceremony time, the length of time you have me for photography coverage, and the expected weather (helloooo sunset photos!). I’ll make up a pdf version of the timeline once we’ve agreed it looks good, and send it your way so we are all on the same page :)
