FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS!

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?

My style is clean and timeless with pops of color! I love natural light but can photograph in any type of venue. I’m a fan of candids but I think posed photos are important as well.

DO YOU TRAVEL?

YES! I’m located in Southern California and Colorado but I have my passport ready to go. I have special packages for destination weddings.

WHEN DO WE GET THE PHOTOS?

For Engagement sessions you will get your photos 2 weeks after our shoot. For weddings you get the photos about 3-4 weeks after your wedding date but I like to send you a few previews cause I’m impatient to see them as well!

WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK?

You should book as soon as you have your date and venue. I accept clients on a first come first basis.

WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO YOU SHOOT WITH?

I shoot digital with Canon bodies.

DO YOU ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS?

I take all major credit cards with a 3% fee.

DO WE GET THE DIGITAL FILES?

Digital files are included in all collections. You will receive a personal online gallery where you will be able to download all of the images.

WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO BOOK YOU?

To reserve your date a non-refundable retainer and signed contract must be sent to me. No date is held until I receive this.

DO WE HAVE TO DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?

An engagement session is included in most of my collections. You don’t have to get one but I highly recommend it. It’s such a good way for us all to get to know each other a little better before the wedding day. It makes you both more comfortable in front of the camera.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT FIRST LOOKS?

I think first looks are a great because we get a chance to get some photos before the ceremony and it gives you a chance to get those nerves out.

HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD WE HAVE FOR PHOTOS ON THE WEDDING DAY?

Ideally 45-60 minutes for first look and bride/groom portraits and 20-30 minutes each for family and bridal party portraits. This all depends on how many family photos you will be needing as well.
