questions

   There is a $750 retainer for all wedding collections. Portrait sessions require a 50% retainer to book.

Do you require a retainer?

   I would love to meet you and your partner to really get to know you and ensure we are a good fit. If you are unable to meet or live out of the area we can chat over the phone.

Do we meet before booking?

Have you shot at my venue before?

   I have the training, experience, and knowledge to be able to photograph at any location. Whether or not I've shot at your venue I can assure you that it will be perfect and that I can capture beautiful imagery in any situation. 

   Being nervous is normal, you're stepping out of your comfort zone. I will guide you during posing and movements. I will give you direction as it is needed as well as reassurance. You'll forget that you were ever nervous in the first place.

I’VE NEVER HAD PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS DONE BEFORE, I’M NERvous.

   Of course! I love to help provide styling. I will send you links and inspiration for your session.

I don't know what to wear to my portrait session, can you help?

   Yes, I am happy to photograph your wedding or portrait session no matter the location. If you are looking for a unique location for your portrait session I love shooting at the beach, in the desert or in the mountains.

Do you travel?

   I take the time to get to know you as a couple. I help you every step of the way and keep in contact throughout the process. I want you to feel comfortable with me on your wedding day and to completely trust me to capture your legacy. I am calm in times of stress and am always good for a little bit of comic relief. I am there for you before, during and after your big day.
