for portrait sessions, 3-8 days
WHAT ARE YOUR WEDDING / ELOPEMENT PACKAGE RATES?
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
YES! absolutely! I'm based out of Whittier, CA but love to travel for weddings. if you are having a destination wedding, please check my bucket list to see where I will shoot your wedding for FREE!
DO YOU SHOOT ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
of course! I offer engagement sessions in all of my wedding packages. this is a great way to get to know each other before the wedding day and really helps to get you both relaxed in front of the camera.
WHERE DO YOU SHOOT ENGAGEMENTS?
I'm completely inspired by the outdoors and my sessions reflect that. either a hike in the mountains, walk along the coast, or a stroll in the forest. I'm always down for an adventure and grateful to have clients that come along!
WILL ANY OF OUR PHOTOS BE BLACK + WHITE?
yes. some images just look better black and white! I will use my discretion to decide which work best as color and which work best as black and white. but the majority of your images will be in color unless you request more black and white!
HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
once your images have been edited, they will be uploaded to a private gallery for 1 year. you will be able to download, order prints and share your images from this site.
HOW DO WE BOOK WITH YOU AND HOW DO WE PAY?
a 50% retainer fee + signed contract locks in your date. I accept payments of credit, debit, cash or check. everything can be done online.
DO YOU HAVE BUSINESS INSURANCE?
I sure do. some venue’s require this, so just let me know and I’ll be more than happy to provide it.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE FOR A WEDDING?
typically it's somewhere around 400-700 images for a full wedding.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
if I have the spot open, it's yours! typically portrait sessions are booked a couple months out and weddings anywhere from a few months to a year.
WHAT IF WE CHANGE OUR WEDDING DATE?
if your new date is open on my calendar, I am happy to switch it without a new retainer fee. However, if I'm booked that day, I will refer you to some awesome photographers that I think will be a great match!
CAN WE POST OUR PHOTOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
duuuuh! I love social media! you now share the rights to the images with me and can use them for whatever personal use you'd like. I just ask that you don't crop, edit, or add any filters to them since we've already done all that editing for you! and if you give us photo credit, we'll love you forever! #loveandexploration
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
something unique, but that fits your personality and makes you feel comfortable. the best thing I suggest is to color coordinate without “matching”. steer clear of any logos or distracting patterns. layers and anything flowy is always great. If you're totally stuck, head to your favorite store, find a mannequin that you love, and buy everything they're wearing. they are usually styled really well and it saves you time!
IS THERE A CANCELLATION FEE?
nope! there is no cancellation fee for weddings or portrait sessions, however, the retainer fee for is non-refundable once paid.
IF THINGS CHANGE, CAN I CHANGE THE HOURS OF MY COVERAGE?
yes! up until a month before the wedding, you are welcome to request changes to your coverage time.
