Have you photographed at my wedding venue?
I have photographed events at various venues across the Southeast and beyond. But regardless of my experience at a destination, a key part of my workflow is arriving well before my coverage begins to scout the most beautiful locations so there is no time wasted when it's time for portraits.
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME FOR IMAGES?
Your online gallery from your wedding will be available within 6-8 weeks to view, download and share with family and friends (they can also order professional prints here). I strive to give my clients the fastest turnaround possible, one that I promise is worth the wait! Portrait sessions typically take 3-4 weeks to turnaround. Album time varies based on when you confirm the final design!
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO I RECEIVE?
I focus on quality over quantity, creating authentic imagery to tell a cohesive story, rather than giving you 1000 images of the same pose. The final result is an heirloom for generations to come, rather than more "stuff" on your shelves. There are many depending factors throughout each wedding, but you can expect 60-80 final images per hour of wedding coverage.
CAN WE SEND YOU A SHOT LIST TO FOLLOW?
Absolutely, I do ask for a shot list for family photos to make sure we don’t forget to include someone important to you. This list is to be kept brief at 10 groupings or less for a quick flow before or following the ceremony. Beyond this, I do not work off of a list as this limits my creativity. You’ve invested in me as an artist to capture your authentic story and entrusted me to provide a fantastic experience, so you can trust it will be nothing short of that!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU? AND WHAT IS YOUR BOOKING PROCESS?
Most couples book roughly 6months-1year (max) in advance to ensure their date is secured on my calendar as I only commission a limited number of weddings per year. To book, a 50% non-refundable retainer of the collection total is required, along with a signed contract. The remaining balance is due 30 days before the wedding date.
WE ARE NERVOUS ABOUT BEING UNCOMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA! DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS?
Yes! I totally get it. Let’s set some expectations for each other. I do NOT expect you to know how to pose yourself, gaze into my camera, know what to do with your hands or act like a model. I’ve got you and will direct you into these moments, only capturing the ones that showcase your true personalities. Our time together will be more like taking a walk with an old friend, instead of being super posey posey. The biggest tip is to RELAX and smile. Trust me, the magic happens when you’re relaxed and comfortable.
