Why do you photograph weddings?

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life.  It is the first day of you two becoming a family.  That is such monumental and significant moment for both of you and your families.  These aren’t just pictures, theses are memories.

I look back at my own wedding images and I am so thankful that I invested in an amazing photographer to document my day.  If  I hadn’t, I may not have the images of me dancing with my grandfather who passed a few years later.  That image to me is absolutely priceless.

This is why I photograph weddings.  So that I can provide you, your families, and your future children with beautiful memories from the day that it all started.

 What is  your photography style?

Our images are Bright, romantic and genuine.  We believe in giving direction for your portraits and incorporating movement, so that it never feels stiff or forced.   This results in timeless photographs that make you feel beautiful and reflects your love for each other.

Throughout the day, I capture all the little details that you’ve spent months agonizing over.  During the ceremony and reception I take a very photojournalistic approach.  I document the day as it lays out while capturing the fun and emotions with your family and friends.

Have you won any achievements?

How far in advance do we need to book you as our wedding photographer?

I only accept a limited number of weddings each year, and we book fast.  Once your venue is booked, and you know I’m your gal, I suggest booking me right away.  I accept bookings up to 18 months in advance.

Will our family and friends have access to our images?

Yes! Anyone that you give your gallery link to can go online to view and download web ready images.  A lot of couples post their wedding gallery link right on their Facebook page for everyone to see!

Will every image I receive be edited?

Yes! Every image that is delivered will be hand edited.

How many images will I receive?

We set no limits on how many images you receive. Weddings with more details, and a crowd that knows how to have a good time, get more images. On average you receive 50-75 images per hour.

Can you hold my date for me?

Yes, with a 30% retainer and a signed contract.  The remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding date.  Without the retainer or signed contract no dates will be held.

Do you offer engagement sessions?

Yes! We believe that engagement sessions are so important. They document a fantastic time in your life and really capture your personality as a couple. These sessions not only prepare you for being in front of a camera but also show you how I pose and direct. There is no doubt that an engagement session will enhance your wedding photos.

Do you offer wedding albums?

Ooo Yea, I LOVE wedding albums.  Your wedding album is your first family heirloom and we believe that every couple should have one.

 

How long does it take to receive our photos, and how do we receive them?

Each wedding has a 10 week turnaround.  Once your images are completed they will be uploaded into an online gallery.  You are able to share the gallery with friends and family and they can download images or place print orders right online.

Will I get a sneak peek?

Yes! I am just as excited as you about your images, so I love sharing sneak peaks! I post them on both my Facebook business page and my instagram! So make sure to follow me on both and tag yourselves!!

 

Can we meet before I book with you?

Yes!  Meshing well with your photographer is one of the most important factors to choosing who you go with.  I am going to be right by your side most of your wedding day, and I want to make sure I am the right fit for you.  I highly recommend sitting down with me at our studio to go over any questions you may have while you look over our wedding albums.

For couples who are out of town or don’t have the time to sit and meet in person, I recommend a phone or Skype consultation.
