DO YOU ONLY SHOOT WEDDINGS?

Although weddings and couples shoots are some of my favorite sessions, I enjoy a variety of different styles! I love shooting lifestyle, adventure, and in-home shoots and am passionate about taking on each session with the care and expertise it requires. 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?

Because every event is different I’m unable to specify a certain number. The duration of the event, size of the party, and the venue all factor in. Although I can’t make any guarantees, I can tell you that engagement and couple sessions typically receive between 100-300 images and weddings are likely between 400-800. Please keep in mind that these are estimations. Once I know a little bit more about your event I can give you a better idea of how many proofs you can expect.

DO YOU EVER RELEASE YOUR RAW FILES TO CLIENTS?

No, I will not release RAW images. I do this for both of us: for you, so that you can enjoy your timeless memories in what I believe to be the best way possible and for me, to protect my creative license and make sure that all of my sessions are consistent with my other galleries and reflective of my creative work. While I do not release RAW files to clients, I do offer retouching add-ons if you are looking to make alterations to the released gallery or specific images.

 

 

HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES? 

Your images will be available via an online gallery where you may view, download, or share your images. Depending on your package, you may also receive a USB thumb drive by mail containing all of your images in their high resolution format.This is included in most wedding packages but may be added on to other shoots if you desire.

WHAT IS YOUR TURN AROUND TIME?

For weddings I aim release a teaser gallery with a small collection of images within one-two weeks of the wedding date. This will include a culled set of images as final pieces for you to have and share with friends and family. The remaining images from your big day will be delivered in 4-8 weeks. Engagement sessions are generally delivered within two-four weeks. Other types of shoots may vary. However, I will always ensure photos are released to you in the shortest amount of time needed to create beautiful, timeless images.

 

 

CAN YOU ASSIST US IN A DESTINATION SHOOT OR FINDING A LOCATION?

Yes and yes! Traveling or hiking to specific or remote locations for your photos is one of my favorite things about this line of work! Whether you have a location picked out already, a general idea of what you are going for, or you want help coming up with something that suits you best, I’m your girl! Depending on your chosen location there may be a small travel fee. Please contact me with what you have in mind and I will be able to give you more information.
