Are you a part time or full time photographer?
I am a part time photographer. I work a full time day job as a project assistant in the environmental field.
What makes you different than the other photographers?
I am not just the photographer who is going to show up on your wedding day, do my job and deliver the images.
I am going to keep in continuous contact with you from the day you inquire to the day you book to the day of your wedding and beyond that. I am going to ask questions, offer vendor referrals if needed, ask you to tell me stories, heck I may even invite you over for dinner. I want to build a friendly relationship with you so I’m not just that girl with a camera who shows up on your wedding day to do my job. My goal is to start a friendship that will allow you both to be completely comfortable on your wedding day to ensure it is a wonderful memory!
How many camera bodies do you have?
I have two Canon 5D Mark II’s and one Canon 60D along with many professional lenses.
Do you own a studio?
I don’t have an indoor studio for photo sessions but I do have an in-home studio office for meeting with clients and completing my day to day workflow.
Can I meet you before the wedding?
Yes, I would love to meet you before! You’re more than welcome to come to my in-home studio office, we can meet for coffee, or we can set up a Skype date. Whatever works for you.
You said you have tattoos and piercings; would you be willing to cover them up for our day?
You bet. I know and understand that my choices aren’t accepted by all. I will gladly cover up if you ask me to!
Do you travel? What are your travel fees?
Absolutely, where are we headed? My travel fees vary depending on where you’re taking me!
Are you willing to customize a package if none of yours fits our needs?
I am always willing to work with clients within reason. Let’s talk!
Do you offer military, law enforcement, fire and emergency personnel discounts?
I don’t have anything set up but I completely support and have experience with working with those in these professions. Let’s talk!
Do you provide the digital images in your packages?
All of my wedding packages include final high-resolution images.
Do you include an album in your packages? Can you show me a sample?
All of my wedding packages include a fabulous leather flushmount album. Trust me they’re gorgeous and you’ll be eager to get yours after your wedding. I do have a sample for you to ‘oooo and ahhh’ over while you’re here. They are completely upgradeable too if you want to get fancy!
What if my family and friends want to view and/or order prints?
I will create you an online gallery full of all your images. You’re more than welcome to share that link and login with them. From there they can browse and order as they please. This will make your life a little easier by not having to take all the orders from them and collect the money.
Are the second photographers you hire people you have worked with before?
My main second photographer is my husband so I’d say we have a pretty close working connection. If my husband is unavailable my second will be a photographer that holds the same values and standards as I do.
Will you be photographing another wedding the same day as my wedding?
Never! Once you book your wedding with me that day is blocked out for YOU!
If we decide to book you, what is the process? Can I take a copy of the contract home with me to read before I sign it?
To book your wedding I require a signed contract and non-refundable retainer. Once I get those, the day is yours! You’re more than welcome to read the contract in advance but know that I book on a first come, first serve basis. If there are two of you inquiring about the same day then the first to get me both gets the date!
