I'm all about communication and being transparent:)

I know I like to have all the expectations laid out and I sometimes need things to be said in the simplest of ways and that's how I'll be with you! I'm super open so don't hesitate to ask me anything!

Step #1


Reach out! Tell me about yourself and what you're looking for. I want to connect with you and document your story. You can do this through the contact form!

Once I receive your inquiry, I will respond within 24 to 28 hrs. If needed (and always with weddings), we'll schedule a 15-minute call:)

Step #2


During our phone or video call, I want to get to know you and your vision for your wedding/shoot. I will provide any recommendations I might have and tips for how I photograph, and I'll answer any of your questions as well! After our call, you will receive a proposal for my photography services, and the pricing for your photoshoot. Once you’ve looked everything over, we'll both sign an agreement (to protect us both), and I'll send you an invoice to pay a small retainer to hold your date.

Step #3


Leading up to your session, it's getting exciting! Depending on the services booked, you will receive various guides and questionnaires to help you plan for your upcoming shoot. You can expect these 3 to 4 weeks ahead of your session. I love to make sure you are fully prepared and that all details are finalized. I will reach out to confirm your session and will be able to answer any questions you might have before we meet.

I'm so excited! Today is the day!! Make sure you arrive on time with everyone ready to go! Depending on the location and time of day, timing can make or break our photoshoot!


Here are some things to expect during your session:

  • I will give prompts and direct you throughout to ensure you receive both posed and candid photos.
  • Movement is key - don't be afraid to move! Overall just come happy and confident in your love and yourself:)

STEP #5


The day I know you can't wait for! Within 3 to 5 weeks of your photography session, (6-8 for weddings), you will receive a link to your photo gallery through Pixieset. This is the easiest way to deliver high-quality photos so that you can enjoy them straight away, and even print them from your gallery! Just make sure you download them! Taking a screenshot ruins the quality!

FAQ

What do we wear to our session?
Don't worry, I've got you! I will always tell you to wear what makes you most confident! I also recommend not to wear anything that would distract from YOU. Neutral colors photograph best and help that, to not distract, but if red is your favorite color, wear it!
Do you help with planning?
Yes! I will help with timing/location recommendations as well as styling and ideas to help bring your vision to life! For weddings and elopements I will help with the timeline and whatever else you need.
Can you photoshop me?
No. I will not change the way you look. I will fix temporary things such as bruises, scrapes, pimples/blemishes. If you are self conscious, please be open with me and I'll do my best to pose you in a way that helps you feel confident:)
How many images will we receive in our gallery?
Probably too many haha. I don't believe in only giving a certain number or having you pay for extra. These are your memories and I promise to send plenty to remember the time and feelings you had.
What is your turn-around time?
Couple, family, portrait, maternity, etc, are 3-5 weeks, weddings and elopements are 6-8 weeks.
What happens if there's bad weather?
I totally encourage embracing the weather and making the best of it, but if it becomes too crazy or unsafe, we will definitely reschedule.
Do you travel?
Easy answer, yes! I will travel to wherever you're planning your session or wedding. I lived in Germany for a year and a half and am very comfortable navigating new places.
What if you can't make it to our wedding?
I pray that would never happen, but if by some act I can't (illness, death, act of God, etc), I will find someone I trust to photograph your day and I will edit and deliver the images.
