Where are you located?
I'm currently in Gainesville, Florida but I will be moving to Colorado in Spring 2020!! I'm so excited for this new adventure!! If inquiring about a 2019 to early 2020 wedding, I'll be booking in Florida mostly (with a few weddings I'll take on in Colorado to help build my portfolio out there, discounted rates for Colorado brides!!)
If inquiring about a Spring 2020 wedding & after, I will be officially fully booking in Colorado! :)
I will travel anywhere & everywhere though so please still reach out to me if you're getting married/eloped in any state or any country!!
How long have you been doing photography? Do you work as a full-time photographer or do you have other jobs?
I picked up my first professional camera about 5 years ago & have been hooked ever since! I went to Florida State University & earned my Bachelor's degree in Studio Art with my focus area being Photography & my minor in Entrepreneurship. So it's safe to say that having my own photography business has been a dream of mine for a long time.
I do run my photography business full-time, no other jobs! It's the absolute BEST feeling in the world to do what I love for a living & it's all thanks to you amazing people who trust me to document all of these special moments in your lives. I am forever humbled & grateful for all of you, you are truly making my dreams come true.
Do I really need a second photographer?
This is a question I get asked a lot & for a good reason! I have the option for you to add on a second photographer, but the downside to this is that you're choosing quantity over quality (& more money comes out of your pocket for this too!). No second photographer you hire is going to have that same creative eye that your main photographer has, which is why you love a photographer's work in the first place.
I believe that if you are drawn to my work, it's because of the quality of my images, not the quantity (which I still create over 600-1000 images per wedding all on my own!). For your wedding day, I will formulate a photography timeline for you so I make sure I get every shot possible. I always have two cameras on me when needed and work my little tail off to make sure every single moment is captured. This is my passion and I love being there to capture every moment with the creative & keen eye that I have.
Choosing to hire (or not hire) a second photographer is 100% your choice & I completely understand if you feel more comfortable hiring one, I have that option for you too! If you're looking to save a little money, just know that a second photographer is never necessary & I am going to be there every step of the way. I have shot more weddings solo than I have with a second photographer & you can ask any bride I've had, I am always there to capture each possible moment!
I'm so awkward in front of the camera and have no idea what to wear!! Any tips?!
So once we're all set & officially booked, I will send you a Style Guide for your session! Also, I'm all about making you feel as confident & comfortable in front of the camera as possible & have specific techniques to help you do that! :)
How long will it take before I receive my photos?
For portrait collections, it takes me about one to two weeks, depending on the season!
For wedding collections, you will receive your images between four to eight weeks after your wedding day!
What options do you offer for your wedding collections?
Since each wedding is different, I try to make my collections as customizable as possible. You have the option to have a second photographer, a custom wedding album, or order high-quality prints directly from your personal password-protected online gallery. Each full-day wedding collection includes a complimentary engagement session!
How many images will I receive?
For portrait collections, you will receive a minimum of 40 professionally edited images.
For wedding collections, I put no cap on how many images you receive. Each wedding day is different and I am there to capture every moment possible. You will receive every image from your wedding day (minus ones that are out of focus, people's eyes are closed, etc. No one wants those anyways!). Most of my couples receive around 600-900 images. Every single image is professionally edited to be as beautiful as possible.
