you have questions? i have answers.
What's your favorite part of a wedding day to photograph? That's a tough one! My absolute favorite part would have to be the bride and groom portraits (or the ceremony), because I love photographing the connection and joy after you're officially (or almost) married! I also love getting ready photos because everyone is so excited and anxious (in the good way, of course), and reception photos because who doesn't love dancing?? (Disclaimer: I will most likely dance at your wedding with camera in hand!)
Do you edit (color adjust, retouch, etc.) all images or only a specific number of images? I edit every single photo I deliver (if they’re good, I deliver them! I don’t cap photos!) and at times slightly retouch portraits when needed (any major edits/retouches will be an additional cost). I try to keep the retouching to a minimum and as natural as possible.
Do you shoot in digital and film? I currently only offer digital photography.
When will we receive a written contract? You'll receive your contract with your booking proposal.
What is your refund/cancellation policy? If you cancel the wedding, I do keep your retainer/deposit (50%) as that holds your wedding date. However, if I do book your wedding date again, I refund you completely!
Do you have liability insurance? Yes! If your venue needs a copy, please let me know!
In the event that you unexpectedly cannot photograph our wedding, do you have a back up plan? Yes! This has never happened before, but in the case of an emergency I would personally hire another photographer who has a similar shooting style to mine. I would still edit the photographs and deliver them to you to keep my style and your photos consistent.
How much is the deposit & total? When are these due? Your retainer is 50%, but I understand everyone has different financial situations so I do offer payment plans! I can split up payments into 2, 3, or 4 - whichever works best for you. The final payment is always due two weeks before the wedding date!
Do you charge a travel fee? There are no travel fees for Florida weddings! Virginia and Georgia weddings have a $200.00 travel fee. Other destinations start at $400.00 per wedding.
How long after the wedding do we get to see the photos? I estimate 4-6 weeks or sooner for smaller weddings!
Would you appreciate a short shot list? I actually send out a questionnaire about 1 month prior to the wedding which asks for your top 5 shots that you want at the wedding, as well as a detailed family shot list.
Is there any time limitation on access to the online gallery of our images? Your online gallery will be live for a minimum of 60 days, but after that I have the right to remove it because of storage space. If the gallery is removed and you need to access the photographs, I can re-upload them for a fee of $150. I also sell USBs and disks with your wedding photos on it! I just have it stated on my contract that after I deliver a gallery, it’s your responsibility to keep them safe!!
Is there a way to keep our photos private unless we specifically give our consent? I completely understand wanting to keep your photos private! I do not charge extra for this, but I do love sharing a few beautiful photos of your wedding on my website and social media, so as long as we agree to me asking permission beforehand, we can totally make this happen!
