How does booking you work?
If you've already spent some time on my website and you're ready to do this, go ahead and fill out my contact form so I can learn a little about you. I always encourage a phone call/Facetime so we can get to know each other and make sure we're a great match before you book. I'll send you a contract to review and sign, you can reserve your date with a 30% deposit, and then I'm all yours!
What is your turnaround time?
For sessions, typically 2-3 weeks.
Weddings, typically 4-6 weeks.
Where are you based? Do you travel? Travel fees?
I'm currently based out of Atlanta Georgia, but I would love any excuse to travel somewhere new. I break up my travel fees into three categories:
How many images do you include?
I typically deliver 50-75 photos per hour/session. Typically more, never less but I try to focus on quality over quantity!
Do you help with the planning process?
Of course! I'm here to serve my couples beyond just being your photogrpher. Timelines, venue/vendor reccommendations, anything you need.
What is your delivery method?
I use Pic-Time to deliver beautiful client galleries. It's super easy to navigate, download photos, create favorites lists, and share.
Do you offer prints/albums?
Yes! All of my packages include a full print release. I offer beautiful high quality prints and albums through my Pic-Time gallery site.
What does "retouching" involve?
I retouch every photo to adjust the color, lighting, and composition. Then I remove any minor blemishes/distractions that wouldn't be there in a week or so. I mainly work within Lightroom, but will occassionally Photoshop distractions out of images. However, I will not Photoshop you to make you look slimmer, because you are beautiful the way you are.
Do all of your wedding packages include a second shooter?
Yes! I believe it's so important to have two photographers to capture everything that goes on at a wedding! I hire other lead photographers to be my seconds. I always hire someone who has a similar standard of gear and experience that I do. You will love having two different angles of important moments, especially your ceremony!
What happens if we need to reschedule?
Life happens. I'm happy to reschedule your wedding to a new date with (a 15% rescheduling fee applies for Friday-Sunday dates.) I ask that if you want to reschedule you do so at least 48 hours prior to your wedding/session, otherwise I consider it a cancelation.
What if there's bad weather?
I always encourage embracing Mother Nature because any weather conditions can create beautiful photographs. If it's harsh enough we may decide it's best to change locations or reschedule.
Can we bring a +1 to our session?
Of course! If you have a dog or child I you're totally welcome to bring a helper, just please let me know beforehand!
Do you give RAW or unedited images/footage?
I do not, and trust me you don't want them anyways. I take wayyy too many pictures / footage at a wedding so culling through and getting rid of the mistake shots is a big part of my process. I would never keep you from seeing any of the good stuff. You're paying me to edit your photos/film and make them look beautiful, the unedited images just look unfinished!
What kind of gear do you use?
- 5D Mark IV body
Can we exchange the engagement session for a discount?
The engagement session is a complimentary extra, so it can't be exchanged for discounted wedding day coverage. However we could do an intimate in home sesh, boudoir pictures, bridal portraits, whatever!
Can I extend hours on the day of?
Of course, please pay me more to hangout at your reception. If for whatever reason you want me to stay, I have an aditional hourly charge . I can't garuntee that my second will be able to stay.
What type of "sessions" do you offer?
Anything couples or wedding related!
What happens if you can't be at our wedding?
I have never missed a wedding and I hope I never will, but I do have backup photographers in place should that ever happen. First of all I would communicate with you about everything, and see if you'd be okay with hiring either one of my associate photographers so you'd still get my editing style, otherwise you would receive a full refund and I would try to help you find a good fit!
Can we pick the song for our film?
Yes and no. I use Musicbed the best copyright free library out there. In my questionaire I get to know what type of music you both love. I'll give you a curated playlist of songs and then you'll get to choose your favorite! I use a wide range of music genres in my films, but lyrics are really important to me and really elevate my films.
Can my gallery be private?
If there are certain photos you don't wish to be public I completely respect that, however I'm an artist and part of the passion in creating my work is being able to share my couples stories and inspire others!
How far out should I book?
I only take on 24 weddings each year so I can give each couple my undivided attention.
Do you record vows?
I'm a big fan of music so my highlight films are just like music videos and typically don't include ceremony audio. However I do mic up the groom and the officient and get great audio for the documentary edit.
