I did my best to pull together all the questions I get asked most often and gather them here for you to check out! 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, honest, warm, golden goodness, authentic, earthy, tender, heartfelt, connection, 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 less busy 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 go about an hour-ish or so! If we do a lot of walking around, sometimes it'll be around an hour + half. I kind of just let it flow!
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!
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 & 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!! Like 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! So, no, i can't really do a discount. :/
