Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Images Are Included?

For weddings, I deliver at least 700 for an 8 hour or more day. For engagement/couples sessions, I deliver a minimum of 150. I don't put a cap or limit on what I will deliver. Every wedding and session is different and I'm scheduled for different amounts of time, so it's never the same.

Will I get RAW Files?

No. Editing is just as important  as shooting; it's the other half of the photography process. Every photo you receive will be edited to ensure consistency in colors, brightness, and mood.

How Does Payment Work?

What Do We Wear?

Whatever best represents you! I want everyone to be conformable and be themselves. Your outfits should compliment you and the location we're shooting in! But I'm more than happy to assist if you have any questions on wardrobe.

What is Your Turn Around Time?

For engagement, my promise is 2-3 weeks. For elopements and weddings, I promise 4-6 weeks. You might see other photographers promise around the same or even shorter. EVERY SINGLE PHOTO I deliver is something I am proud of. I want to make sure you get the best of me and not something I have to rush in order to meet some crazy fast deadline.

How Do We Receive Our Photos?

I’ll upload it to a password-protected online gallery and send it to you via email. You can share the link with friends and family so they can see these photos. You can also download the whole gallery to your computer and share them directly to ALL  of your social media platforms.

How Will My Photos Be Edited?

Photos are edited in a manner consistent with the images portrayed on this website and social media accounts.  Images are edited for color correction, adjusting tone and color/white balance to enhance lighting that will compliment that subject and mood. Images portrayed on this website have not been retouched or "Photoshopped."  "Retouching" of images refers to the process of changing the look of the subject, such as in changing skin, hair, teeth, clothing, etc. as well as removing items from a scene, background replacement, removing/adding people, swapping one portion of a photo for another, etc.   Requests for retouching services will incur an additional cost of $100 per hour, and such requests may be outsourced.
