questions

do you offer engagement sessions? 

Yes - I love shooting engagement sessions!  You will be happy to know that I actually include engagement sessions in each standard wedding photography collection.  This is a fantastic time for us to get to know each other and for you to see me in action before your big day!

Looking for just an engagement session at this time?  I also offer a la carte engagement sessions and would be happy to discuss providing beautiful portraits.  Contact me to discuss pricing and availability!

how many images do you deliver? 

Due to the unpredictable nature of weddings, I cannot guarantee a certain number of images.  However, I can tell you that I average between 50-75 fully edited images per hour of photography.  

On that note, each of my wedding photography collections includes an online gallery filled with beautiful, high resolution images from your wedding day. You are able to download, share, and print to your heart's desire.  I also include a print release with each delivered gallery - this is essentially a "permission slip" that some print services may ask from you if you go to have your images printed somewhere.

will all of my images be edited?

Yes, all images I deliver from any session or wedding day is completely edited!  I spend time on the back end perfecting and retouching so that your images are beautiful and "gallery ready" for your viewing pleasure.  

do you work with a second shooter?

Yes and no!  My entry package (which is perfect for more intimate weddings) includes a sole photographer, me!  I photographed weddings independently for the first two years of my business and, based on your needs, am able to fully tell your wedding day story on my own.  My top two collections include a second shooter, an addition that is great if your ceremony and reception are at two different locations or if you are planning a larger wedding.

do you travel for weddings?

Yes, my passport is updated and my bags are packed!  I've photographed weddings across the United States and internationally and would love to discuss your destination wedding.  Pricing varies based on the location - visit my Destination Wedding page or contact me for more information!

How long will it take to receive my images?

I know how excited couples get to see their final images - trust me, I get just as excited to share, as well!  I promise a one week preview from their wedding day and full gallery delivery within six weeks.  Of course, I strive for a faster turnaround if at all possible!

what is a print release?

With all galleries delivered, I offer a "print release," which essentially allows you to download/share/print your images as desired!  Although I offer print services through a professional lab, you are welcome to print your beautiful photos through any third party source!

i think i need more than eight hours of coverage.  is this a possibility?

For most weddings, eight hours is more than enough time to beautifully tell the story of your special day.  However, I understand that sometimes due to logistics or certain traditional elements, more hours may be needed.  I do offer extra hours - just let me know and we'll take a look at your timeline!

How soon should i book you?

My calendar fills up at least a year in advance, so I highly recommend booking at least 9-12 months out from your wedding day with any vendor!  This ensures that you are able to book all of the wedding professionals you love most!
