+ WHAT IS LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY?
My approach to photography has always been from a story telling aspect. It is the uniqueness and personality of each subject that makes each session special. I look for the small details and story I can draw out of you. I look to make my clients laugh and smile genuinely instead of meticulously ordering them around. I believe that photo sessions should be relaxed and fun not rigid and forced.
+ DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes, I love to travel. My packages do vary in price depending on the destination. If you would like to learn more please send me a message!
+ HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY IMAGES?
For weddings it will take roughly 4-6 weeks to properly edit and give your images their final polish. The editing process is where I am able to create the story of your event and should be treated with extra care and attention. Smaller sessions like portraits typically see a 2 week turnaround.
+ WILL I BE ABLE TO PRINT MY IMAGES AND SHARE THEM WITH MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY?
Yes, They are yours to share and make prints of as much as you want.
+ DO YOU OFFER PRINTS?
Yes! With every online gallery you will receive where you can download the digital files I also include a store where you can purchase all types of prints from. My personal favorite is the standout mounted prints. They come ready to hang and are mounted on lightweight foam core to come off the wall 3/4".
+ CAN I SHARE THE IMAGES ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
Absolutely, I love to see my clients share their photos with the world. I only ask that my clients do not edit the images and since I do not like to watermark my images which I feel is a distracting element, giving me a small shout out is always nice. That way I can help out anyone else who is interested in my services.
+ WHAT SHOULD MY WEDDING PHOTO TIMELINE LOOK LIKE?
Typically on a wedding day I show up 30 - 60 minutes early. I'll start with wedding details like flowers, dress, invitations, and jewelry. This starts the day on a calm and relaxed note before I move onto taking photos of your family & friends. Depending on the timeline, day, and events this is what a mock timeline would look like.
12:30pm - Details
1:00pm - Getting ready photos
2:00pm - First look & portraits
3:00pm - Bridal party portraits
3:45pm - Family photos
4:30pm - Ceremony
5:00pm - Cocktail hour
6:00pm - Reception
+ CAN I CUSTOMIZE MY SESSION PACKAGE?
Yes, I don't restrict my services and understand that everyone is unique. Feel free to reach out to me and I will accommodate you.
+ WHAT IS THE BEST TIME FOR MY PORTRAIT SESSION?
Typically an hour to two hours before sunset. When the sun is low in the sky and the colors from sunset start to peak. I am fine with taking photos in any light conditions but the closer to sunset if possible will be a decision you won't regret.
+ MY VENUE ASKED THAT THE PHOTOGRAPHER HAS PROOF OF INSURANCE, CAN YOU PROVIDE THAT?
Yes, I am insured and would love to provide a certificate of liability to your venue.
+ HOW DO PAYMENTS WORK?
I accept cash, check, or credit. With weddings I will meet with you to go over the details of your big day and collect a deposit. This will cement your booking with me and carry you all the way until your event. For portait sessions I tend to collect payment prior to our start.
+ YOU ARE SUPER FRIENDLY AND DOWN TO EARTH!
Well, thank you! That's not really a question but I really appreciate it. If there is anything else I can answer for you please don't be shy and reach out to me.
