As your date gets closer, along with your final invoice, I will send over a questionnaire to get more details on poses you don't want to miss, among other things. This will help me maximize your time so we can get the greatest number of photos possible. The day of, you can have peace of mind knowing I have covered all the details so you can enjoy your new memories in-the-making. After your session, I will send a teaser of what is to come. Once every photo has been reviewed, your gallery is delivered. Enjoy!
After signing a contract and paying the retainer fee, your day will be officially confirmed and reserved from any other bookings. Yay! My immediate priority is to help guide you on having the best possible experience with the least amount of stress. The first step is to go over expectations. What are you really excited about? What makes you nervous? I want to help you every step of the way. Once we are on the same page, I will send over a special guide that will go into more depth about how to make your day run smoothly.
For me there is no greater joy than walking alongside my clients as they journey through life. My role is to capture those precious moments that you'll treasure forever! From your last year in high school, to your engagement, to growing your family, all moments deserve to be cherished.
Weddings are one of those rare occasions that bring together family and friends in celebration. I love all the energy that surrounds us. The stories between the couple, their family, and friends bring me so much joy. It is such an incredible privilege to be invited to be a part of your special team of talent, to share in this milestone, and to be part of such an intimate moment.
Have another question for me? I'd love to hear from you! Just click below to inquire.
5. Do you instruct for posing?
I do a mix of pose and candid photos. I help prevent any of those awkward moments while also letting you just be and naturally enjoy your experience.
6. What is your payment plan?
I ask for a 50% non-refundable retainer up front to reserve your session. I am happy to work with you on an individual payment plan to fit your needs. I will send you email reminders of when your payments are due. I want to help things run as smooth as possible for you -I know you are busy and your time is valuable.
7. Can I talk to your past clients as reference?
I totally get why you would ask that question. It makes sense since when applying for a job they usually ask for your previous employers as references. To be honest, I don't provide references for a few different reasons. First, any I would give you would be biased -of course I would choose clients who would speak highly of me. Second, I respect my clients' investment and privacy. I could never ask them to market for me on their own time.
1. How long will it take to get my photos?
Portrait sessions take 2 weeks and Weddings take 8 weeks. I make sure all edited images are nurtured from top to bottom, paying attention to the little details. I will notify you by email when your personal online gallery is ready to be viewed and downloaded.
2. What happens if you get sick or injured and can't photograph me?
I take photographing my clients very seriously. Whatever type of session, I would have my associate photographer stand in. You will never be left hanging. I always have my clients best interest in mind.
3. Do I get the copyright to my photos?
You do not get copyright to the images but I do provide a copyright release to my clients allowing for you to print and share to your heart's content.
4. What if I need to reschedule?
No Worries! I will accommodate you to your new date as long as it's not already booked. Any rescheduling after that is a small fee of $50. I am usually very flexible to help fit your needs.
