Frequently Asked Questions
Do you travel?
Yes! I love to travel! All wedding packages include travel within the state of Virginia ( local weddings receive 10% off the package price), but I love to travel coast to coast and offer very reasonable travel rates. Additionally, I am available to travel worldwide.
How long after the wedding/session will we receive our images?
You will receive a sneak peek of your wedding images within 10 days of your wedding. Your online gallery will be available within about 30 days of your wedding. For other portrait sessions, the turnaround time is approximately two weeks.
We have already had engagement pictures done, can we swap out the complimentary session for something else?
I cannot stress enough the importance of spending time in front of my camera before your wedding day. Each couple is so different, so even if you've had an engagement session done already, we will both greatly benefit in having the opportunity to get you in front of my camera prior to your wedding day: You'll get to know me as a photographer and I can learn about photographing you as a couple. To get the introductions out of the way before your wedding day will help ensure we aren't as rushed or brushing off nerves at the time when it is most important! That said, if you would still prefer to swap out your pre-wedding session for a bridal or boudoir session, I won't argue with you. It's YOUR day! :)
What is a First Look and why is it so popular?
A First Look is when the bride and groom take a quiet moment early in the day to see one another and reflect upon the day together. I wrote all about the benefits of a First Look here.
How long have you been a wedding photographer?
2019 is my 13th year in business as a wedding photographer.
How many weddings do you shoot a year?
I limit my wedding bookings to 15 annually.
What are your office hours?
I will always note my current office hours at the bottom of each email I send. For the most part, with the exception of sessions, I will work in the office Mon-Fri from 9am – 5pm. If you have an urgent need and have to get in touch with me outside of office hours, I welcome my clients to text me any time.
Can you pencil me in?
I cannot pencil you in or hold your date. I have to have a signed contract and retainer before I can reserve a date.
Can we print our wedding photos? Can we put them on facebook?
Of course you can print your pictures! I also LOVE when my clients post their images to Facebook! The only limits I have are selling the pictures, editing the pictures, or submitting the images in competitions. I'd prefer if you would leave those things up to me. :)
How many pictures do you include in the wedding package?
Clients can expect to receive anywhere from 400-800 wedding day images in digital format. The final number depends on the details in your day including the size of your bridal party, your family, and if you have a lot of additional details to be photographed.
Sounds great! How do we secure you as our wedding photographer?
