Frequently Asked Questions
Here is a short list of questions I get asked quite often.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My photos are soft with a good dose of color, and inspired by film. I shoot documentary style, making sure to capture every essence of the day - grandma's happy tears, the nitty gritty details, the groom's in-between glances towards his bride throughout the day, and everything else in between (including fun and posed shots for mom and dad).

WE'RE NOT ENGAGED. SHOULD WE TAKE PICTURES?
I totally believe you should have photos of you and your loved one! Engagement is honestly just the next step, so why not have photos of you two wherever you are in your journey together? As awesome as marriage and being engaged is, it's not for everyone, so I definitely do think you should take pictures together. Let's get rid of the stigma of having awesome and professional photographs of the both of you only when you are engaged. :)
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE GET?
For full day weddings, you can expect at minimum 500 hi-res, fully edited images in my signature style. For weddings, my turnaround time is within 6-8 weeks. Engagements and portrait sessions are delivered within 3-5 weeks. Also, I know we live in the age of instant gratification, so I send sneak peeks within the week. Depending on my schedule, I may also blog your wedding or engagement session (meaning, MAJOR sneak peeks) within 1-2 weeks.
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
Canon all the way, baby. And don't worry, I'm fully insured. Just give me a heads up if your venue needs a certificate of insurance.
CAN WE GET THE RAW PHOTOS?
Raw photos are raw photos. Just that. Unedited and incomplete. I like to compare it to an uncooked meal. I work my magic in every single photo I deliver so you get the full reliving-the-day-of experience when you look at your gallery.
WHO OWNS THE PHOTOS?
I retain full copyright on all my images; however, I grant print releases for all my galleries. Meaning, you may print your photos wherever you'd like and do not have to buy them directly from me.
WHEN SHOULD WE SCHEDULE AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
Honestly, it depends on when you want them! If you want your engagement pictures displayed at your wedding, I'd say as soon as possible. If there's 9 months or more til your wedding, then we can get creative and take advantage of the changing seasons. Click here to see one of my recent engagements.
HOW DO WE GET OUR PHOTOS?
I will send you a link to a gallery with a download code so you can retrieve all of your images immediately. Every image delivered will be fully edited and in both hi-res and web resolution. No watermarks or logos will be on the images.
WHERE ARE YOU TRAVELING THIS YEAR?

WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
I book 12-18 months (sometimes 24) in advance. My bookings are first come, first serve basis. Once you get engaged, you should book your photographer ASAP, aka the first thing you do. :)
