Where are you located?
I am located in Fredericksburg, VA but I'm always more than happy to travel.
What are you travel rates?
I absolutely love to travel so I am happy to be accommodating. I just ask that you help with my travel expenses & a place for me to stay. I usually stay in Air BNB's or I camp so depending on where your wedding is the rate can fluctuate. I am also sometimes willing to travel for free depending on if your wedding or elopement location is on my bucket list or can be added to it:) This is something we would need to discuss further.
How do we book?
I require a 30% deposit (that is applied to the final total) & the signing of the contract to reserve your wedding date. Please inquire with me through the contact page.
How many pictures do we receive?
Every wedding is different but, you can expect to receive approximately 75-100 photos per hour of coverage. I typically deliver anywhere between 500-800 pictures. For portrait sessions you typically receive 100+ pictures.
When will we receive our photos?
You will receive a preview of at least 4 of your images within 1 week of your wedding if not sooner. This preview will be on Facebook/Instagram. A preview online album of 100 images will be delivered 2 weeks after wedding date. Complete online gallery with web resolution images and individual download access provided approximately four to six weeks after wedding date.
How do we receive the photos?
You will receive the photos on an online album the has a password and download pin. Anyone with the link and password can view the album. So, friends and family can easily view all of the images!
Will you be able to provide proof of liability insurance?
Yes I have insurance! Just let me know if you venue asks for it and I can have it sent to them!
Do you edit your own images?
Yes. I go through every image taken on your wedding day myself using the best software. I take time to pay attention to detail & color in each image.
Can we see the RAW unedited images?
No! I promise you don't want to see/have all the raw images. I will deliver all of the good images to you in your album fully edited. Editing is just as important as capturing the image. You are hiring me for my experience in editing and judgement. It would be like asking a professional florist to just give you the flowers so you can do the arrangement yourself, or asking a painter to draw out the painting for you to fill in with paint. Let me do the editing & you will have plenty of images to choose from I promise!
What kind of rights do we have to the pictures? Do we have to pay to download the images?
The package includes the print release & download pin to the high resolution images. This means, all of the images are included in the album. You do not have to pay any additional costs to download & print the images. You have the rights to print the photos for personal use & printing. The online album will allow you to print the photos through a professional photo lab. You are able to print the photos wherever you like - but if you use a professional photo lab you will get higher quality results than at a drug store. I can suggest some great places!
What resolution are your photos?
The photos delivered to you are high resolution images at least 300 ppi. This allows for large scale printing. The online album will give you the option to download the high resolution images and the web resolution images. For online sharing, use the web resolution images. These images have been downsized so that when you share on social media, the images won't get compressed and won't come out pixelated. For printing purposes you will use the high resolution images.
Can we share the images online?
Yes! Of course you can share the photos on social media! It is also always appreciated greatly when you credit one of my professional social accounts so that more brides & grooms can find me for their wedding day :)
What are your rates and packages?
I do have set rates and packages that I am happy to share with you. Due to the diverse nature of weddings, I am always open to making a custom package for your wedding experience. Inquire through the contact page & let's get started on a wedding package that works for your wedding day!
