How would you describe your style?
I'd describe my style as intimate, adventurous, and honestly a little playful. I really like to focus on the way people interact with each other, aka capture the happiness you two feel when you're together. I want every engagement session and wedding to feel as though you're just hanging out and being yourself, but with a good friend there to candidly document unique moments.
How long will it take to receive my photos?
You'll definitely have a few sneak peek photos to check out while you're on your way to your honeymoon, but the full gallery will be ready 4-6 weeks after the wedding! This will ensure that your photos are close to perfect. I'd say totally perfect, but Hannah Montana would disagree. Engagement sessions will take about 2-3 weeks!
How exactly do I receive my photos?
I put all of the images in an organized online gallery, which is how you will first receive your photos. All of the other fun stuff comes later! I put your USB, etc. in a super pretty package and send it to you in the mail. And what's more exciting than getting stuff in the mail? Nothing.
How many photos will I receive?
I deliver about 60-80 photos per hour!
Is travel included in your packages?
For all Washington and Oregon weddings and elopements, yes! If you're not getting married in Washington or Oregon, feel free to message me for travel rates.
Why is photography so much $$?
Besides the effort, blood, sweat, and tears put into photography, specifically wedding photography, your photos are going to be the things that last the longest from your wedding. You can freeze your cake topper, and obviously save your dress, but the photos will always remain the same. You'll be able to relive the memories time and time again, see the way you smiled that day, and remember how drunk Uncle Bob got at the reception. I would 110% recommend splurging on your photographer and videographer to preserve your memories.
Can I post my images on my Facebook or Instagram?
Uh, yeah duh! Post away. Post every single image if you want to!
What the heck should I wear to my engagement session?
Wear what you feel best in! If you both rock jeans and tees normally, wear that. I’m serious. If you want to buy something new for your session, I recommend wearing it out a few times first! I also have a whole blog post about engagement sessions if you want to check it out.
Ah, I'm so nervous about the engagement shoot! What if I don't know what to do with my hands?!
Hey! That's my job! I don't expect people to show up to their engagement sessions knowing how to be models. In fact, almost every couple claims to be soooo awkward but it’s just not true. Because this year I decided to start having fun during engagement sessions. Stiff posing?? Heck no. That’s so 2016. Just trust me when I ask you to hold hands and spin in circles.
Ok, what do we need to do to book our wedding date?
A 35% non-refundable deposit and a contract are required to book your wedding date! This ensures that I won't book anything else on this date. Having said that though, I do save your date for 72 hours without a deposit so you have some time to talk it over with your fiancé without the fear of losing the date. Have you ever seen the word date so many times in three sentences?? Can you believe I was an English major before this?
Ok cool, we are ready right now. SO WHAT'S NEXT?!
YASSSS. You are awesome and I can't wait to work with you! All you have to do is shoot me an email and say "HEY. I AM READY RIGHT NOW!!" and I'll know exactly what ya mean.
