Absolutely! I understand that everyone’s story is a little different, and maybe your day is not 100% traditional. That’s ok! I’m flexible and can accommodate whatever schedule fits your needs. Whether you want additional hours, or an elopement style mini package, I can assure you, it can be arranged and you will be well taken care of every step of the way! Don’t need an engagement session? Swap it for extra coverage!
WHO IS YOUR SECOND SHOOTER?
Castine is my right hand woman, and has been working as my full time second shooter for almost 3 years now! When video is involved that becomes her department, so I bring on a third person to the team! Any second shooters I work with are professionals that I trust and I have worked with enough to know their style and trust their help. I book my shooters between 1-2 months in advance to give them freedom to book their own work.
WHAT IS YOUR TYPICAL TURNAROUND TIME FOR PHOTOS?
I’m a huge fan of sneak peaks! You will see highlights of your wedding or engagement session posted in most cases within the next day or two.
I then sort through and pull out all of the very best images to tell your story, not leaving anything out, except the blinks, blurs and lighting test shots of course!
Full online galleries are released within 4-6 weeks. You can expect roughly 75-100 images per hour of coverage.
If you just can't wait, I do offer expedited editing services for an additional fee to get your wedding photos back even sooner to share with all your loved ones!
WHAT TECHNIQUES DO YOU USE TO HELP MAKE YOUR CLIENTS COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?
I emphasize quality of experience and having fun. I use movement and interaction to create a comfortable and relaxed environment. I encourage things like spontaneous kissing, dancing, and making each other laugh to capture the true personalities of the couple. I also give direction where needed, and always have a list of fun poses to keep the session rolling.
SO I'M READY TO BOOK, WHATS NEXT?
A 30% deposit fee is required to secure your date. This payment is non-refundable. You will receive an electronic contract and invoice, with the option to pay via debit, credit card, or direct bank account withdraw. Once you have completed these steps, it’s official, we are a team!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS?
I have had a camera in my hand since I got my first Canon Rebel for Christmas when I was 15, and I studied photography at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh my senior year of college in 2015-16. I have been shooting weddings since 2014, and am now in my fourth year of working full time career in the industry!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Elegant, fresh, and candid. I edit in a way that give my images a romantic and dreamy yet still natural feel. I consider my work to be creative & candid, capturing the moment in an artistic way.
WILL I RECEIVE THE PRINT RIGHTS TO MY WEDDING PHOTOS?
Absolutely! It is recommended that you purchase large prints and canvases through my studio, but I include a basic print release in all of my contracts for you to bring with you when you take your photos anywhere for printing.
