My Collections begin with 6 hours of coverage. From there, we will custom tailor how many hours of coverage you will need.
How much am I going to spend?
Wedding Collections start at $2995 for 6 hours (see Investment). During our phone or in-person consultation we will determine how many hours of coverage you need for your big day as well as if you would like a second Photographer, a fine-art album, parent albums, a USB, prints, wall-art and if you would like an engagement session.
Do you have a retainer?
For me to turn down other clients and to reserve your date I require a retainer and a signed contract. As a courtesy, I will hold your date for 24hrs after our phone consultation. The retainer is 50% of whichever package you choose paid at the time of contract agreement. If I have another inquiry for the same date and have not received the retainer and signed contract beyond the 24hrs after phone consultation, I offer first-come first-served basis.
How many images will I receive from my wedding day?
Each wedding day is unique and the number of photos delievered depends on a variety of situations: some couples have more time built into their schedule for the couple to get more images alone, have a first look, some Brides do not want photos of guests seated at tables, some have more formals/bigger families than others, bridal party size could be larger, the booked number of hours for photography coverage...all these factors will influence the amount of photos I am able to take. On average I'd say I deliver about 90 photos per hour of coverage.
These sessions have their own reveal and ordering session approximately one weeks after your portrait session. I love love love engagements sessions! It is a great way for us to get comfortable with each other. Weddings that have had an engagement session tend to produce more relaxed day-of images because we've established a relationship and you know what to expect.
Is a Second Photographer included?
A second photographer is available to add on a la carte.
How long until I get to see my images?
Approximately six weeks after your wedding you will receive an online gallery of your images. We will then meet in my home studio space for an ordering session to design your album as well as choose any prints or wall-art.
Can I have the RAW files?
Long answer short, no. My job is to provide you with the full experience. From start to finish you are hiring me for my creativity and artistic eye. I do not distribute RAW files for this and other reasons that include the logistics of being able to transfer such massive file sizes.
Do we create a shot list of photos?
I have a pretty quick routine down from experience of the order of all the formal photos but each family is unique. A month before your wedding date we will go over a shot list for formals. We need to keep in mind how much time has been allowed for these images, the amount of light and cooperativeness of participants. It's a good idea to have a designated family member for each side that will round up the family members that will be included in formals to help with efficiency.
We can also decide which can be done during designated formals or during cocktail/reception.
If there are any additional must-have images of the night it is important that you let me know when you submit your shot list. Asking for a photo of your Aunt in the purple dress with her three kids after the wedding, I can't guarantee I took that image.
You took more photos than I'm seeing at my reveal. What happened to those?
I do take multiple shots of the same poses, set-ups and scenes. From there I pick the absolute best images and only present to you the ones that are the most flattering. Any out-of-focus or unflattering images aren't presented.
Do you have a studio to meet at?
Yes….and no. I have a dedicated 200 sq. space in my home for consultations and ordering sessions. I ask that you do not bring more than yourself and your fiancé for our meetings due to limited space.
My Uncle or the DJ would like to photograph our day as well. Is that okay?
Due to the general chaos of the day it really is in your best interest to only have myself and my second photographer. You are paying me to do the best job I can and if you have multiple photographers directing and jumping in it will hinder my ability to direct and capture those fleeting precious moments. I ask to be the sole Photographer.
I can’t wait to book our wedding, what happens now!?
Fill out the contact form, email me or call to set up an in-person consultation. You will receive a questionnaire by email after I respond to your contact form or message. I will answer all your questions about your wedding during our chat. If you are then ready to book, I will email you a contract and an invoice for your retainer.

What else before our wedding day will we have to do?
About a month before your wedding date I will email you a more detailed questionnaire about the timeline of your day as well as a shot list recommendation to finalize. I have a pretty fast method to get through formal photos but this would be the time to list if there is anyone specific we may need to add.
How can I pay?
I prefer cash or check but can invoice for credit card.
