Destination wedding prices are negotiable depending on travel pricing.

Online via invoice is my preferred method for accounting purposes, but I also accept cash, checks, Venmo. Wedding, Elopements and Multi Session packages can all be paid via payment plans online.
Are your prices adjustable?
You are more than welcome to add time, people to your session at an additional cost, but all my pricing is on my website is not adjustable unless it's a destination wedding.
What locations to do you use? Do you have a studio?
Yes, I have a clean white studio with endless possibilities to make your dream session a reality! I have professional lighting available along with seamless backdrops in various colors. My equipment is travel friendly and I can set up locations at your request.
I shoot at a variety of locations including parks, waterfalls and urban areas. Some locations require additional fees and permits. If a fee or permit is required and that is your location of choice that would be an additional cost to you. I am always up for an adventure, so If your wanting to try something new, I will look into it!
Do you shoot destination weddings?
Absolutely! I love to travel and go to new places. I am willing to go anywhere your dreams take you!
Will there be a second shooter?
Depending on what package you choose, yes!
Can I extend the session on the day of?
That depends. If the lighting is still great and I don't have plans, I can offer an extension but it would need to be paid for on the spot via Venmo, check or cash

Two weeks for portrait session and weddings within 4 weeks.
I need my photos in a few days and can't wait 2 weeks, can you rush my order?
I can put a rush of photo sessions, (not weddings) for an additional fee of $150 per one hour session.
How do I receive my images?
I use Pixieset, an online gallery of all your edited digital images, where you can purchase prints online through a professional printing studio. I will send you a gallery that has been edited and you choose your images allowed with your purchased package. You can purchase additional images or the entire album. You will receive another downloadable link after selecting your images. Weddings and elopements are all inclusive and receive a custom USB.
Do I have to order prints through you?
No, but I highly recommend using a quality professional printer for a few reasons. Professional printers use high quality archival papers, correct coloring and composition. You never want to print your photos at local drug stores as the quality of the image will not be a true representation.
Where should I have my pictures printed or cards made?
I highly recommend the online printing studio attached to Pixieset. Professional Printing Studios offer archival paper, proper coloring and composition. Please do not get your photos printed at local grocery, drug store chains. I would hope that you would want to print your images and enjoy them in your home. If you are interested in my help with albums and wall art, I would be more than happy to help you! I offer payment plans for albums and art as well. Wedding Albums can be paid for monthly for the first year of marriage, so by your first anniversary you will have a beautiful album for you both to enjoy along with future generations!
I love all my photos, but can you re edit a few?
I take pride in editing and perfecting your images and send out the best of the best, however If you would like further editing, I can send you my additional editing fees. I do not alter bodies! You are beautiful just the way you are!
Can you send the unedited pictures?
No, I do not share my unedited work.
How many images will I get?
It depends on your package, but for a one hour shoot you will receive 20 with the option to buy more. Weddings are typically around 400-600 depending on the package. Elopements are around 200-300 depending on how many hours you need me.
What is your editing style? Can you edit to dark and moody or something else?
My editing style is organic, clean and natural. I hand edit all my photos to ensure the best look for each photo. I believe in capturing emotions and I will give you direction for a natural unposed look! Please look at my work on this website and on my instagram. I do not alter my editing style to fit clients. If you love my work, but want a different editing style, I would be more than happy to refer you to other amazing photographers who would fit your needs.
What should I wear and how should I dress my family?
I have a client closet for women and girls if you are interested. I also have a tab on my instagram highlights. Tap on the grey circle "Wardrobe" to see tips on dressing for your photo shoot. I would be more than happy to send you links of where to buy clothing that looks great on camera as well! Please make sure you dress appropriately for the weather and season. It is very hard to get genuine relaxed expressions when you're freezing or hot.
Do I really need hair and makeup done by a professional ?
You are not obligated, but I highly recommend getting it done by a professional who knows what looks good for outside or studio portrait lighting. It will not only give you a polished look but your will feel beautiful and that tends to show in your expressions. I have a have a few hair and makeup artists that I work with and will recommend them when you book with me.
I need to cancel, can I have my money back?
Your downpayment is not refundable. We will reschedule if there was a need to cancel. Please notify me at least 24 hours in advance. If you have paid in full before your session or wedding please refer back to the contract you signed. I am more than happy to accommodate you if an emergency arises and you need to reschedule.
How far in advance to you schedule?
I will schedule a year in advance and prefer to plan ahead. Peak season for outdoor photography is usually September – November with spots filled months in advance. Weddings book a year in advance, but sometimes, I may have last minute availability so be sure to check with me to see if I still have that date open.
