How long have you been shooting?
My husband bought me a DSLR and a 35mm film camera about 6 years ago, and that's when I began shooting anything and everything. However, I developed a love for weddings and families. I've been shooting professionally for 6 years, and I've shot about 85 weddings.
Where do you like to shoot portrait sessions?
Anywhere. In fact, I encourage a place where we can get comfortable, creative, and into some beautiful light. Upon planning your session, we will talk about the things you like to do for fun, where you feel comfortable and that usually determines where your session will take place.
What is your booking process?
Once we've either spoken by phone/email or met over coffee, I will send you a contract and a list of payment methods. For portrait sessions, I require a 50% deposit to secure your spot, and the remainder is collected right after the session. For weddings, I require a 25% deposit, and the remaining balance is due 7 days before the wedding date.
When can I expect my photos?
Editing takes time, and I do not to rush the process to ensure that what you're getting is to my standards. My turnaround time for portrait sessions is usually about 2 weeks, and for weddings and events it's up to 5 weeks. I will usually post sneak peeks on Instagram and Facebook the week after the session.
What is a first look?
A first look is when the bride and groom meet before the wedding ceremony. This is typically done for a couple of reasons:
1. If your wedding ceremony begins at sunset, but you don't want to sacrifice daylight portraits. It also allows more time for portraits.
2. It gives the couple a chance to hug, kiss, and have quiet alone time. It can be as intimate and special as the couple desires. Sometimes its the only way the couple will have this kind of time together on their wedding day. Although it's not traditional, I find it to be way more emotional and intimate than seeing each other down the aisle in front of 100+ other people.
Do you shoot alone?
I shoot alone for portrait sessions, but during larger weddings I usually have a second shooter. I have my go-to gal pal, who shoots with me at most of my weddings, but if she's unavailable, I choose second shooters who are professionals, who will happy to be at your wedding, and have a similar eye/style to mine.
How many photos can we expect?
It depends on the day and what exactly is in the schedule. A typical wedding of 6-8 hours is usually about 500-700 photos. For a portrait session, about 150.
