Are you available for travel?
Yes, I am! I love exploring and traveling to new places!I live in San Diego, California and love to travel out of state. I charge a flat travel rate to make it easy on both ends.
How do we book ?
I require a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer via Venmo to secure your session/wedding date. You are officially booked for your date when I receive both.
Do you offer payment plans?
Absolutely, for weddings I can work out a custom payment plan that works for you, just let me know ahead of time.
SHOULD WE SEND YOU A SHOT LIST?
Other than a list for family photos, I prefer to shoot without one. I love being able to capture the day as I see it. If there are really specific shots that I wouldn’t have been able to capture without your input, then yes please tell me!
How many images will I receive?
The only photos I do not deliver is mid-blinking, blurry or unflattering photos that I know you won’t have any desire to print/have. Average delivery is anywhere from 300-800 photos. But I do not put a cap on how many. Sometimes I deliver over 900 photos! It just depends on how long I am hired for and how much goes on come wedding day. I do not send you any RAW (un-edited) photos – you are hiring me for my editing style and trust that I send all the right photos.
When will we receive our photos?
Images will be delivered anywhere from 4-6 weeks, 6 weeks being the latest. I pride myself in taking time to carefully go through each image.
CAN WE POST OUR PHOTOS TO SOCIAL MEDIA?
Absolutely! Please do. I love seeing what clients decide to post what, it makes my day. However you cannot alter the images in any way such as : re- editing, cropping, and adding filters. I’ve worked hard to edit your photos, and make them look magical! Ps. I’d love it if you could tag me also!
Second shooter-do i need one and who is it?
Having a Second shooter just means that there’s a second pair of eyes capturing your big day, meaning you’ll get more shots, different angles, and more perspectives. A second shooter is very helpful for weddings that have brides and grooms getting ready in different locations, very large weddings, and weddings with a lot of commuting between locations. I reach out to trusted fellow photographers who I book based on availability. Second shooters are all professional, trusted, and dependable!
what happens if you can’t be at our wedding?
In the unfortunate case that I am deathly sick or injured and can not attend, I would first, try my best to find a suitable replacement who I fully trust to capture your day to as high of a standard as I would, (although I’m not legally required to do so, worst case scenario, you’d be refunded for the stated amount in the contract).
What’s Your style?
Each couple is so different and unique that the way I approach, shoot, and edit, is reflective of the couple, the location, and the day. The artistic choices I make are focused on quality and story telling.
can we have the raw files?
what if we have to cancel our wedding?
Retainers are non-refundable. This is what reserves your spot in my calendar, I do not book another wedding on this date because I have reserved it for you.
Are prints and albums included in your packages?
No prints or albums are included in any of my packages. Once you receive your online image gallery, you then save and download your images. You can then, send them to print or create your album with a printing company of your choice, this is a much more cost-effective way my couples are able to save money. I’m more than happy to recommend some of my favorite printing presses!
My venue asks for vendor insurance, do you have it? How does that work?
Absolutely. As a wedding professional, I have General Liability insurance. Your venue will provide you a very specific name to put under as, “Additionally Insured”, you give me the information, and I send your venue and you a copy of the Insurance Certification. Easy and done.
What do I wear to my Session?
Don’t worry I’ve got a what to wear guide I’ll send over, you’re in good hands!
HAVE YOU SHOT AT MY VENUE BEFORE?
If I haven’t - I promise it doesn’t matter! I always go location scouting before weddings if it’s a venue I haven’t been to before or sometimes I’ll even tag along with you during your walk-through! I research images of your venue and I even arrive early to all my weddings so I can scout the location one more time on the day of.
Do you offer Discounts?
