WHAT TO EXPECT

booking

Booking us is super easy - send over your date, preferred investment option and I’ll send you a quote. Once you’ve accepted the quote, a formal invoice and wedding photography contract will be sent your way. When we’ve received POP and a signed contract, your date is booked.


STEP 1

WHAT TO EXPECT

Payment

A 30% non-refundable booking fee is required in order to secure your date. The remaining 70% of your balance is due two weeks prior to your wedding. We do have downpayment options as well.


STEP 2

WHAT TO EXPECT

Schedule

We’ll do a zoom call about a month before your wedding, to discuss the timeline and order of events, day of the weeding. Here we iron out any further questions you might have about the day. You also get sent a timeline to share with other wedding vendors/ your bridal party.


STEP 3

WHAT TO EXPECT

Proofing & Delivery

Should you choose to add an album (and I highly suggest you do), you’ll be sent album proofs and your full wedding gallery digitally to make any edits if needed. When approved, your album is sent to the lab and once I’ve received the full package, I send it over to you. Don't have an album? As soon as retouching on your images are done, I'll be in touch to arrange delivery at no additional cost to you.

STEP 4

YOU'VE GOT QUESTIONS,

I'VE GOT ANSWERS.
How do we reserve our wedding date?
A 30% booking fee & signed contract is required in order to get your wedding on the calendar. The remainder of your balance is due two weeks prior to your wedding.
What sets you apart from other photographers?
With years of training under my belt, I know how to pose and guide clients to make them feel relaxed while looking their very best. I use natural lighting
What is included in the package we choose?
Yes! Upon receiving your images, you will also get a full print release. All packages receive a beautiful keepsake box with your names & wedding date engraved. In this box is a USB with high and low resolution files as well as a little gift from me to you.
How many photographers will be there at our wedding?
Most of our wedding options come with two photographers.
Will my photos be posted publicly on your site or social media?
I respect your privacy and allow each client to decide whether or not they want their photos displayed publicly. I’d love to show off you & your images, if you’re game! If not, that's okay, too, I totally respect your privacy.
Will our photos get featured in a magazine or blog?
While many weddings often do get featured, this isn't something that is guaranteed. Most publishers are interested in uniquely designed weddings.
Will you Photoshop my images to hide any unwanted spots, wrinkles, etc?
Minor edits will be made to all of your images, but I believe our imperfections are what make us beautiful & unique. If there are specific edits you want, these will be charged according to the number and complexity of edits.
Do you have a list of preferred vendors to use?
Yes! From wedding planners to florists, make up artists and venues, we have worked with some of the best companies in the industry & would love to share their information with you!
Do I have to order prints/ albums through you?
I highly recommend ordering prints and albums through my preferred lab, but it isn't required. The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional lab, so I always love to help with prints!
What equipment do you use?
I use all of the latest Canon equipment. I always carry the Canon R, 35mm lens, 24-70mm lens, & the 70-200mm lens, two speedlights and lots of batteries, among other items.
Do you photograph destination weddings?
Yes! I’ve shot dozens of destination weddings (Florida, USA, Tanzania and some South African destinations as well) and am more than happy to create a custom wedding collection to suit your travel needs.
Are the people featured on your site models?
For the most part, no. While I am lucky enough to work with gorgeous clients, the majority of the images shown on my site and blog are of regular, paying clients.
