How much do you charge for weddings?
Wedding coverage starts at $4,200, please contact me for more specific details.
What does all day coverage mean?
I like to make sure that you are not stressed on one of the best days of your life. Getting to know the people who love and support you makes the experience mean more to me. If I am there while you pin up your last curl, and depart long after you’ve kicked off your painful wedding shoes, I get to see the real you. The anxious, laughing, crying and loving you. That matters to me.
Is an engagement session included with wedding coverage?
Yes, if you a book a wedding, an engagement session is included.
How much is a portrait session?
A two hour portrait session starts at $500
What is included with a portrait session?
A portrait session includes a consultation (in person, on the phone, via the world wide web) to find your vision for your photos. As I transition in to film photography, I will be shooting both digital and film images. You will receive the high resolution images and an online gallery where you can view, share and print your photos professionally.
Can I hire a second photographer?
Of course! I have a fantastic network of fabulous friends and colleagues who I trust to bring with me for your day. Let me know if you have more questions about that option!
Do you offer albums?
Yes! Let me know and I can send you pricing information.
Do you travel for weddings?
Do I ever. Anywhere in the world…or beyond?! Let me know if you have a specific question, all travel varies.
What is a first look?
A first look is when we have the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony. I highly encourage a first look for my couples on their wedding day. This is the opportunity for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time on their own accord. Maybe you have private vows or want to shake the nerves out with each other, but also it gives us a huge advantage for time. And we can all use more time. I specifically would love more time to concentrate on meaningful photos of you in your most relaxed and comfortable state. We would be able to take care of all of the family formals, bridal party portraits and a few of you together while you are all freshly ready and all before the ceremony starts…giving you more time at the reception with your guests!
Think about it this way…your ceremony is at 5pm, sunset is at 6:30pm. You haven’t had a first look so (assuming your ceremony is 30 minutes or shorter) we will need to fit in photos of you and your families, you and your bridal party and the two of you together in one hour. Plus the hugging and glee that comes immediately after you’ve exchange your vows, it’s nice to have time for that. I get it…the groom not seeing the bride before the ceremony is tradition (I didn’t do a first look for my wedding) BUT do you know WHY it is a tradition? Here’s an article from Bridal Guide explaining where this tradition started. If that still means a lot to you, I completely understand, however I would encourage you to schedule a day after session in order to get the portraits of the two of you in your most relaxed and loving state…alone together.
Which side does my garter/boutonnière go on?
Corsage: Traditionally left but this can be left up to the bride.
Flower in your hair: Left means taken, Right means available.
Garter: When garters were originally used, a bride would wear one on each leg. Now, typically only one garter is worn so it is up to the bride’s discretion.
Do you shoot with a film or digital camera?
Both! I would like to eventually consider myself a “hybrid” shooter. I am learning how to integrate film photography into my business with the goal of shooting the majority of my work using film.
