1) How long Are you There On the Wedding Day?
My packages begin at 7 hours, but if it is determined I am needed for additional photos, it is $200 per hour. The final timeline will be determined at least 2 weeks prior to the event.
2) You Haven't Done a Wedding at my Venue, Is that Okay?
Totally! I have liability insurance and have covered multiple venues! I am always up for a new location!
3) Do you photograph anything else besides weddings?
Yes. So besides weddings, I also photograph engagements, couples, bridal sessions, families, maternity and at-home newborn lifestyle sessions. You can see my different portfolios in my galleries section HERE
4) Do you have liability insurance?
5) Do you meet up with wedding clients beforehand?
Yes, my goal is to get to know you, the client, so that you feel comfortable and at ease around me. We will cover a lot of the FAQs at your consultation (either in person or over FaceTime)
6) So Wedding Timelines, Are they Important?
YES! I will make sure to go over your wedding timeline with you and discuss expectations of timeline at least 2 times before your actual wedding day. This is important because this is YOUR wedding and I want to make sure to successfully capture all of the photos you want. Please note: I will NOT be your wedding planner so I ask that all my clients connect me with either their day-of planner, or someone who is helping out with the timeline.
7) Should we have an engagement session?
Totally up to you! Since it is an a la carte option in my packages, I leave that decision up to you and your loved one. If you want to have a traditional Save The Date, an engagement session is a great option for sure! Plus, my engagement packages come with a hair and makeup artist!
8) Do you work with a Second Photographer?
Yes, because they help me capture ALL the moments of the wedding day, I always have someone with me. I trust my second photographers and they are also professional photographers.
9) Do you edit all the photographs? AND Can we have them delivered in RAW Format?
Yes, I edit all the photographs, but NO I will NOT deliver them in RAW format back to any clients. (You are hiring me for my editing style and trust that I will send you the best curated images. Also note: I will NEVER reedit images after sending the final gallery). Please note: if you have any specific or special photo shop requests, they will be $25 per photo because I work with a 3rd party vendor for any specific Photoshop requests.
10) How many images do you typically deliver?
Between 700-800 edited images (based off of a 7 hour wedding day)
11) Do you Travel for Weddings?
Yes! Since I travel to Montana for destination and elopement weddings, the brides I have worked with cover my travel costs. If your wedding is in a different state, I would love to chat! Remember, I only shoot ONE wedding a month so please plan ahead!
12) What kind of equipment do you use?
On a typical wedding day I always have 2 full frame cameras on me (sometimes 3) and I have 2-3 lens I work with. I am also confident using Off camera flash in case there is no natural light at the ceremony. Plus, my second shooter has several full frame cameras as well.
13) When should we book you?
I only take ONE wedding a month and I schedule weddings at least a year in advance. So please book ASAP.
14) Do you offer videography?
Sadly no, but I have a full list of recommendations I can send to you
15) Do you require a downpayment?
Yes. I require a $500 non refundable retainer fee for your wedding date. This is a non refundable retainer because it helps me block off the date for your wedding. Your wedding date cannot and will not be held until downpayment is received and contract is signed. The remaining balance of your package will be due one week before your wedding.
