FAQ

 

WHAT IS YOUR BOOKING PROCESS?

In order to reserve your wedding date, begin by filling out an inquiry form and I will be in contact within 24 hours. Following an initial inquiry, a retainer fee of 30% of the total cost of your wedding package and a signed contract are required in order for me to officially reserve your date in my books. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the date of your wedding. 

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

All of my wedding day collections include a complimentary engagement session, so the next step following reserving your date is to schedule and plan for this. I absolutely love engagement sessions because they are the perfect opportunity to meet you and your fiance as a couple, get to know you both, and for you to get to know me and the way that I work. My goal during your engagement session is not only to capture some beautiful images of you two, but to set the tone for a comfortable, natural, and easy relationship between myself as your photographer and you as my new friends! 

Following your engagement session, I encourage my clients to feel totally comfortable reaching out to me for any reason. Whether it be excitement over having found “the dress”, planning for your day, or any ideas you may have, I’m always a text or phone call away! About a month before your wedding day, I like to sit down with you for a final planning consultation. This is where we will go over details of your day like your timeline and shot lists, and make sure the photography portion of your wedding is totally and perfectly planned out and good to go!

CAN WE MEET IN PERSON TO BOOK YOU?

Of course! If you’d prefer to talk more details and get to know eachother in person before booking with me, I’m always more than happy to meet you over coffee or lunch. Just let me know when and where and I’ll be there!

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU DELIVER?

For a typical wedding day, anywhere from 300-500, depending on how many hours I’m booked for. Engagement, portrait, and family sessions yield about 20-50 total images in your gallery, and event coverage includes 50-75 images per hour. 

WHAT IS YOUR RETURN TIME FOR RETURNING GALLERIES?

My return around time is 6-8 weeks for weddings, and 2-4 for event photography and portraits sessions.  Galleries are delivered online for viewing, downloading, and sharing, as well as physically mailed to you with a USB drive of your high res files. You can expect the USB delivered 1-2 weeks following the delivery of your online gallery!

DO I NEED TO PROVIDE A SHOT LIST FOR MY WEDDING DAY?

Aside from a family portrait shot list, I do not require a list of poses. However, if there are specific poses and shots you would love to have, I encourage you to send me a list of them for me to hold onto and reference during your wedding day. I capture quite a large variety of details and poses, but I love when my bride and groom have ideas of their own for me to use as well!

WILL YOU TRAVEL?

Absolutely! I’m always up to travel outside my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia to photograph your big day, whether it be just outside the city, out of state, or internationally. For out of state and destination weddings, travel fees are worked into your package price.

WHY DO YOU SHOOT FILM? HOW DOES THAT WORK?

My favorite questions I get asked are film related—how and why I choose to photograph with film is an important part of my brand, style, and a huge part of the reason as to why I’m absolutely in love with wedding photography. I am a hybrid photographer, meaning I utilize both film and digital formats throughout a typical wedding day. Both mediums have their strong suits and specific reasons as to why I will choose one over the other. While film is aesthetically prettier (brighter colors, nicer skin tones, and a certain “depth” to a photograph that digital images cannot replicate), it also requires a slower pace, more focus, and more precision. This makes film ideal for me to use in situations where I can take my time to craft those perfect, light and airy images that are so true to my style, such as bride and groom portraits, detail shots, and a few candids here and there. Areas with sufficient natural light are also a must for film photography! Digital photography, on the other hand, is my go to for faster paced environments like your ceremony and family portraits, or for portions of your day with less available light, such as your reception. My passion for film has continued to grow throughout the years during my time as a wedding photographer, and I’m so happy to get to work with couples who love and appreciate the “film look” as much as I do. I truly do a little happy dance when I receive my film scans from the lab in my inbox, and get so incredibly excited to get them back to you!
