Frequently asked questions

We want to get photos taken but don't know where to start ... what do we do?


Yay for wanting to invest in photos of you + your love or you + your family! Once you are ready to book your session with me, here's the typical process for moving forward with a session:

  1. We will talk about dates that I have available that work with both of our schedules + session start time based on that date.
  2. Once we have a date and time picked out, I will send you a contract to sign + then you secure your session date with a deposit that goes toward your session cost.
  3. We will talk about location options for your session. If you have a location that you want to use that is special for you, great! if not, I have lots of locations that we can use for your session.
  4. We will then talk about outfits. I will help you pick out colors that will work with the location we are using then I'll send you outfit ideas for reference.
  5. The week of your session we will confirm all details about your session + answer any last minute questions you may have.
  6. Then it's session time where we get to meet up and have a fun time taking photos!




We don't have photos taken often, will it be awkward?


It definitely won't be awkward! I don't do awkward posing, instead more natural reactions + loose direction. Plus, let's be honest... I love having fun + I'm goofy. So I promise we will have a great time!

Here's how it works:

  • I won't do the Pinterest poses that you see. I will interact with you guys + have you guys interact with each other. This, in my opinion, creates those genuine moments that you will want to remember.
  • My focus is to capture the natural emotions that happen on your wedding day. If there's a specific moment that is happening, I'm not going to try to re-direct that to something else. I want to document your day as it happens naturally.
  • I still do the formal family photos + wedding party photos, but that won't take much time. Then we can get back to having fun + capturing the rest of your day as it happens.




What's the process for booking you?


First of all, I'm ecstatic that you're wanting to book me to capture your wedding day! For booking your wedding, this is the typical process:

  1. Reach out! Click HERE and fill out the form + then we will set up a time to meet up and chat about your wedding day needs.
  2. Consultation time! The consultation is my favorite time because that's when I get to meet you + your fiancé! Relationships are a very important part of my business, so this is why I like to meet up for coffee or dinner + get to know you. We will also wall through any questions you may have about any part of the process of your wedding photography + we will walk through wedding day timelines.
  3. Booking! Once you're ready to book, let me know what package you would like to secure for your day! I'll send over the contract for you to sign + then you secure your deposit via Credit Card, PayPal, Venmo, Direct Transfer or Check.
  4. Engagement Session! If you selected the engagement session as an add-on, then we will schedule your engagement session at least 4 months before your wedding (or sooner, if you'd like). I will help you pick a location + outfits, so no need to stress! I got you! This is a fantastic time for us to get to know each other better + allows you guys to get comfortable in front of the camera, so your wedding day is super smooth.
  5. Final Wedding Details! A couple months before your wedding day, you'll receive a questionnaire from me that will ask finalization questions + confirm your wedding day timeline. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out + ask!
  6. Wedding day! Yay! It's here! My assistant and I will arrive at the designated location + time for your wedding coverage to begin. We will start by collecting details + starting detail shots of your wedding attire. At the end of the day, we will ask if you if there's anything else that you would like us to capture before we head out!
  7. Week After! The week after your wedding day, I will send you anywhere from 5-12 teasers from your wedding day that you can share with friends + family, and social media, of course! I know how hard it is waiting to see your photos, so I share a few so you don't have to wait long to re-live your special day.
  8. Gallery Delivery! The wait is over! You will receive your beautifully created wedding gallery 8-12 weeks after your wedding day. Depending on the season of your wedding, will determine the turnaround time. If you're wedding is in April-June or September-November, the wait time will be closer to the 12 week timeframe due to the many weddings I have during those months.
