Frequently Asked Questions

- What is your payment schedule? 

For lifestyle portrait sessions, a $25 nonrefundable retainer is due to reserve your date and time. The retainer amount is applied to your total balance. The remaining balance is due before the start of your session.

For weddings, a $100 nonrefundable retainer is due to reserve your date. The retainer amount is applied to your total balance.  The final balance is due four weeks prior to your wedding date. I'll send you email remainders when your payment is due. I like to make things as easy as possible for you - I know you have a lot on your plate!

- Do you deliver every image you shoot?

No, I do not. I eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery

- How many images do you typically deliver from a lifestyle portrait session? Engagement session? Wedding? 

I typically deliver anywhere from 25-35 images per 45-minute lifestyle session (including engagement shoots) and for a wedding, I typically deliver 50-80 images per hour. Keep in mind that these numbers may increase or decrease depending on the flow of the day and the number of events/activities needing to be captured.

- Do you do video too? 

No, I provide photography only.  I prefer to do the absolute best job and provide the absolute highest quality of work for you, and there is no way that I could do that if I were trying to do two things at the same time. I am solely focused on capturing beautiful photos that you will preserve in albums and frame on your walls. 

- How long will it take to see my photos in my online gallery?

Photos from lifestyle portrait sessions will be available for online viewing approximately 2 weeks after the shoot. Weddings and events normally take 4-6 weeks. 

- We want you as our photographer! How do we reserve our wedding or portrait date?

Great!  The next step is to contact me to let me know your desired date so I can check my availability. Once we select the best package for you, I will send you an agreement to sign and instructions on how to pay the nonrefundable retainer. Please note, I cannot hold any date for either a session or a wedding without both the retainer and agreement completed. I can't wait to work with you!
