How do you photograph weddings?
I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. I'll send you a personalized timeline to help you organize your day, the best moments and times for the couple photos, names of the bridal party in the photography order, so we are on a first-name basis and can shoot, shoot, shoot and keep moving easily.. and it's really exciting for me to receive photos of your dress, shoes, invites...! On your wedding day, all I want to capture are the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments, and all the details that make your wedding unique. That's why I do what I do!
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm located in Denton, TX, and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, possible lodging, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to come because I understand that money doesn't grow on trees.
When will we get our photos?
It depends on the session. But, if it's a wedding, you will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within 6-9 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints, canvases, etc...
How many photos will we receive?
For 8-hour wedding coverage, you will receive between 500 - 700+ fully edited images. I always choose quality rather than quantity.
I also provide a 'shot list' that shows every shot I ALWAYS get and it's never steered me wrong.
Do I have to pay all upfront?
If you're booking a wedding, then I understand that's a big chunk of change. I do require a $500 (non-refundable) deposit but, that reserves your day.
You pay however you need until the deadline which is 2 weeks prior to the wedding date. You must be paid in full by then. But of course, life happens. So, if you're needing additional assistance, I can help accommodate you.
Do you have back up equipment?
Absolutely! Not only am I a professional, but I pride myself in letting my clients know that if something were to happen (let's hope not) then, I do have the backup equipment necessary.
If things are running behind, can we add more time?
Of course! Even with a timeline, you never know how everyone will be the day of. I do offer additional hourly services at $100/hr.
Do you offer military discounts?
I do give 10% off any package/session if you are or have been in the military!
