HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE DO I NEED FOR MY WEDDING?
Every wedding is unique and it really depends on the size of the wedding! Since I’ve done this more than a few times, I’d love to chat with you about the wedding day timeline and give you my guidance, so we can figure out what fits for you! If at all possible, I’d highly recommend hiring a day-of coordinator so you don’t have to stress and can embrace the present moment. However, my most popular package includes 7 hours of coverage with 2 photographers (with some couples choosing to add-on an extra hour or two à la carte).
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL BE DELIVERED?
Typically 400-600 photos are delivered for weddings, however every story is unique and it depends on how many images I fall in love with! For engagement sessions, I promise at least 40 images.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
It takes time to produce magic! I will provide you with the best images possible: colored corrected with a gorgeous glow. Wedding/elopement packages are delivered within 60 days of your wedding date in an easily shareable high-res gallery. Don’t worry, I’ll share a few sneak peeks to ease the anticipation! Engagement sessions will be delivered within 2 weeks of the session (usually sooner!).
CAN YOU GIVE US/CAN WE SEE THE UNEDITED IMAGES?
Nope, nope, nope… That’s like walking in while I’m just in Spanx! The editing is half the magic and gives your gallery a warm, unifying feeling. Don’t worry — I won’t leave out any gorgeous images and I’ll cull all the half blinks + triple chins.
CAN WE SHARE OUR PHOTOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
Go for it! I do ask that you provide credit to me within the caption — this is how I meet + am referred to more rad couples (like you guys!) and helps grow my business!
CAN WE PRINT THE IMAGES?
Yes, yes, yes!! I encourage you to print your photos, frame them, have them all around so those memories can serve as a tangible reminder each and every day. I can provide you with my recommendations for printing on your own, or we can set up a custom order.
CAN YOU TAKE A FEW POUNDS OFF, REMOVE AWAY BLEMISHES, OR PHOTOSHOP US HOLDING LIGHTSABERS?
Sorry loves, I think you’re beautiful the way you are + I want to capture your likeness at this present moment! However, my philosophy when it comes to darn spots that pop-up — those will be gone in a week or two, and I will gladly clear up skin + make it look like you’re having the best skin day, ever. As for the lightsaber battle — if you want to bring those and actually do it… DO IT!
WHAT DO WE WEAR FOR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS?
Let’s chat about the location(s) we’re shooting at, along with you + your love’s personal style; then I can help you two create a picture perfect look!
DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?
I do! One of my packages has an album included or they can be purchased à la carte. Though I've found most clients prefer the heirloom boxes + curated prints option (details in my Pricing Guide + Wedding Booklet)!
DO YOU HAVE TRAVEL FEES + WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
It depends on the location of the wedding! I'm currently bouncing between my hometown of Huntington Beach, California and Hobart, Tasmania (in Australia). Half the time I'm in California to photograph weddings + engagements, the other half of the year I'm in Tasmania with my fiancé (while he finishes his PhD program). We can chat to figure out a custom quote and accommodations!
WE'RE SOLD! HOW DO WE BOOK WITH YOU?
To reserve a date for a wedding or elopement, a signed contract + 50% deposit of the total are due.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
My go-to camera is a Canon 5D Mark III and I have a backup Canon 6D. I prefer to shoot in natural light, sometimes crafting my own soft boxes or using reflectors — it all depends on the lighting situation. For evening receptions, I attach a Speedlite flash. My lens kit includes: Sigma Art 50mm f/1.4, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Canon TS-E 45mm f/2.8, and a Canon 85mm f/1.8.
