Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some of my more frequently asked questions. Hopefully they will help give you a little more insight to me as a photographer. If you do not see your question listed below, please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to get in touch with you personally!
DO YOU ONLY SHOOT WEDDINGS?
No, I do not only shoot weddings! Weddings and couples are my absolute jam, but I am happy to be booked for other types of events. Otherwise, I especially love lifestyle, adventure, and in-home shoots. If you are looking for a different photography service than the ones mentioned here, please get in contact with me! Chances are I would love to work with you.
HOW MANY IMAGES CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE?
Every event is different, and there is no specific number I can guarantee. The duration of the event, size of the party, and the venue are all factors that play a role in coming up with how many images you should expect to receive back. Due to the number of influential factors, I do not like to promise a set number of proofs, but rather can provide you with an estimate beforehand instead. Typically for engagement and couple sessions you can expect between 100-300 images and weddings will be between 400-800. These are not finite estimates and have the potential to be more or less than stated depending on your exact needs.
DO YOU EVER RELEASE YOUR RAW FILES TO CLIENTS?
No, I will not release RAW images to clients. I view the work I create as a finished piece and will deliver them as such. I do this for the both of us - for you, so you can have these timeless memories of your day in what I believe to be the best light possible and for me, to protect my own creative license and make sure that all work produced by myself is consistent with my other galleries. While I do not release RAW files to clients, I do offer retouching add-ons, however, if you are looking to make specific alterations to the original released gallery or specific images.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
Your images will be made available to you via an online gallery where you may view, download, or purchase prints. Depending on the type of photographic service, you may also receive a USB thumb drive of all your images in their high resolution format that will be personally mailed to you after your online gallery has been released. This is included in all wedding packages, but may also be added on to additional packages.
WHAT IS YOUR TURN AROUND TIME?
For weddings, I will release a teaser gallery of a small collection of images within one-two weeks of the wedding date. This will include a culled set of images by myself as final pieces for you to have and share as soon as possible with friends and family. The remaining images from your big day will be delivered in 4-6 weeks! Engagement sessions are generally delivered within two-four weeks!
CAN YOU ASSIST US IN A DESTINATION SHOOT OR FINDING A LOCATION?
Yes! Traveling or hiking to specific or remote locations for your photos makes me excited just thinking about it! Whether you have a location picked out already, a general idea of what you are going for, or you want advice and to come up with something that suits you best, I am all in! Depending on where you are thinking geographically, there may be a small travel fee, but to find out please contact me with what you are thinking about!
