how long have you been doing photography for?
I have always had a passion for photography, I have been drawn to capturing moments for as long as I can remember. It was about a little over three years ago that I started my own photography business. I had started out photographing my daughter as a newborn and then started photographing friends and family members and eventually decided to stop hairstyling and pursue my lifelong dream. There hasn't been a day since I began this journey that I haven't carried my camera with me.
How do i book my wedding / elopement?
First, you will fill out my detailed contact form with all of the information of your date & wedding. I will get back to you within 24 hours (during wedding season this can me up to 72 hours). Fingers crossed I am available for your date! I am a HUGE believer in connection, not only between you two, but between yourselves and your photographer so I highly recommend a Skype date OR a coffee/tea date to see if we are a good fit. Once you decide to go ahead with booking I will send you an invoice for the 50% retainer I require to secure the date, as well as a contract for signing.
how many photos will we receive with our package?
For eight hour wedding packages I deliver approximately 800 images.
For two hour elopements I deliver approximately 200 images.
These images are digitally retouched and are placed in a personal online gallery in high resolution.
what packages do you have available?
I only offer one wedding package -- it is eight hours in length, includes a complimentary engagement session and is valued at $4600. (Additional hours are available at a per hour rate.) On weekends I book weddings that are a minimum of 8 hours. However, I am happy to chat with couples about customized packages, if you are looking for coverage in between an intimate ceremony and a traditional wedding day.
WHEN CAN WE EXPECT OUR WEDDING PHOTOS?
I can never contain my excitement to send sneak peeks! So you will receive 3 edited images within 72 hours of your wedding. Then, within 1-2 weeks of your wedding I will send you a little sneak preview gallery. The entire wedding gallery can be expected 12-16 weeks from your wedding date. Your digitally retouched, high resolution images will be delivered via a password protected personal online gallery.
do you offer wedding albums?
I am not currently including wedding albums with packages but I am happy to add the album to your wedding package.
DO YOU HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER FOR WEDDINGS?
I don’t include second photographers in my packages but I am happy to add one. The additional cost is $400 for the day.
WILL YOU TRAVEL TO PHOTOGRAPH OUR WEDDING / ELOPEMENT?
The answer is HECK YEAH! Please inquire for travel cost information!
can we view a wedding gallery in its entirety to see how you capture a full day?
Of course you can! I am currently working on blogging weddings that I have photographed. If you would like to see how I document a wedding day please let me know. I am happy to share past clients galleries who have approved sharing.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO YOU BOOK WEDDINGS / ELOPEMENTS?
For weddings, I book a year to 1.5 years out from the wedding. I’m halfway booked for the 2020 season and starting to book for 2021.
For elopements, I book about 6 months to a year out from the date, but if your intimate ceremony is scheduled for a week day I can usually secure the date 3 months out.
DO YOU HAVE BUSINESS INSURANCE?
Yes, I do! All of my gear is fully insured and I am covered for $2,000,000 commercial general liability.
