I did my best to pull together all the questions I get asked most often and gather them here for you! BUT, if you don't see that one question that's burning on your mind, just shoot me a message and I'll send all the answers your way!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I would consider my style to be documentary - a balance of creative portraiture and photo journalism. I want everything I capture to authentically tell the story of YOU and who you are. I love earth tones, and warm + moody vibes. I once asked several friends to describe my work in three words, and these were just a few of the ones they picked: intimate, joyful, connection, honest, warm, golden goodness, authentic, earthy, tender, heartfelt, whimsical, beauty, tones, untraditional, genuine, artistic, emotional, space, diverse, natural.
HOW DO WE BOOK WITH YOU?
Head on over to my contact form + fill it out, then I'll send you an investment guide with all the good info in it! If you see all the details and say HECK YES, then you'll sign a contract + pay a 50% deposit to secure your date! Easy peasy!
WHEN DO WE GET OUR PHOTOS BACK?
Normal couples shoots + engagement pics will be done in about 2-3 weeks! Weddings are typically 6-8 weeks (but sometimes I have sometimes less months or weeks and it's even faster, which is always a fun surprise)!
HOW LONG DO PORTRAIT + COUPLE SESSIONS USUALLY LAST?
It really depends! They usually are around an hour or so! If we do a lot of walking around, sometimes it may be a bit longer or a bit less. I’m not a stickler on the time!
ANY WORDS FROM OTHERS?
Yep! you bet! Instead of screen-shotting a bajillion texts, I've put together a page of a few thoughtful comments + words from people I love so darn much!! So, go check what they have to say here! Or, you can check out my Google business page with lots of heartfelt messages from past clients! GO HERE →
HOW DO YOU DELIVER PHOTOS?
I use Pic-Time! It's an online gallery that you'll receive via email, and it is UH-MAZING! You can download all the high-resolution images in just a couple clicks! You can also share the gallery and order prints & build albums directly from the site! Plus it's super pretty looking! ;)
WILL YOU TRAVEL FOR MY WEDDING?
YES YES YES! I love traveling! My travel fees are 50 cents a mile round trip within driving distance (starting 30 miles outside of Portland, OR). For flying, it's round trip tickets and lodging. Don't worry, I do all the booking stuff myself, so no more added stress with that! BUT, I LOVE traveling!! A lot. So, let me know all the details - the where, the when, all that good stuff - and sometimes I'm able to give you crazy discounts! So don't let these fees scare you away!
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN A WEDDING PACKAGE?
I do my best to give you a nice little list over on my investment page, but if you fill out a contact form, I'll send you a packet that details everything out even more!
CAN I GET A DISCOUNT ON MY WEDDING IF I DON'T DO THE ADDED ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
Sorry! :( the engagement sessions are complimentary with each wedding package and not actually added into the price. I do it this way because I looooooove getting to hang out before the wedding! It's so much fun to do photos and get to know each other before we get to the big day! Read more of my reasons why here →
