Frequently Asked Questions

The best way to book your photo session or wedding with me would be to send me a message through my contact page and we can discuss your photo session needs!

The best way to view more of my work would be at my full portfolio or stay up to date with my work by following me on Instagram.

Yes of course – all sneak peeks are sent within 48 – 70 hours of your session.

I never place a limit on how many images I deliver. I take as many as I need to capture every precious moment. I average about 75 images per hour.

Deposit for wedding packages is $500, or $75 for all other standard sessions, due at signing. Your deposit not only secures your date on the books but also goes toward your final payment. This retainer acts as a payment for my services and therefore is never “lost”.

Turn Around time for regular sessions is about 8-10 business days. For Weddings, you can expect your photos in about 3-6 weeks. I remember as a bride anxiously awaiting my photos and my goal is always to keep my turn around time as short as possible. You will definitely receive some sneak peeks between the time of the wedding and album delivery.

For weddings, standard payments would include the $500 deposit at signing followed by the remainder due the Friday before your wedding. I know how much goes into a wedding and the stress that wedding budgets can cause, and upon request, your contract can be split into multiple payments throughout your engagement period.

For portrait sessions, deposit is due at signing to secure your date and the final payment is due the morning of your session.

All payments are digital.

Images are delivered through an online photo gallery called Pass Gallery. This allows you to access, download and share your photos from anywhere.

Engagement Shoots are the best way to get yourself feeling comfortable in front of the camera and for us to get to know each other before your big day. Many brides and grooms use these images for their save the date cards, decoration or the guest book at their weddings.

There are many factors to consider when determining how much coverage you need on your big day. When sitting down with your significant other, make sure you know the start of your ceremony, the start of the reception, if you want to do a first look, and if you will be doing a captured exit (for example, with sparklers). An example of an eight-hour coverage day might look like the following:

  • 1:00pm Getting Ready & Detail Shots
  • 4:30pm Ceremony
  • 6:00pm Reception
  • 9:00pm Exit

A first look is a moment to see your significant other for the first time on your special day privately. I think this decision is so personal to each and every bride and groom, and regardless of your decision, we will capture amazing photos. Here are some benefits of each choice:

Benefits of a First Look – This can be a more intimate experience if you are nervous or more private, and it gives you the opportunity to take your couple’s portraits before the ceremony (hair/makeup is fresh and you can relax and enjoy the rest of the day). You can attend your cocktail hour rather than taking portraits, and most friends/family will ask to take photos with you at this time instead of while you are eating.

Benefits of Waiting for the Ceremony – Many brides and grooms picture this moment when their partner is walking down the aisle, and for many this traditional experience is irreplaceable. There are meaningful alternatives to a first look such as a first touch or prayer, and you can “escape” from the business of your cocktail hour to celebrate your nuptials by taking your couple’s portraits together.

A wedding album is such a great way to review and show off your big day. When curating my own wedding album, I realized how much more time consuming it would be than I thought to curate the album in a way that told the story of my wedding. By adding a wedding album to your package, this job will be taken off your hands. I will work with you to include your favorite images from your gallery.

A second shooter can increase your image count as well as help to make your timeline more efficient. While I am working with the bride or groom and their bridal party, the second shooter can simultaneously be capturing the other half of the group. I select my second shooters based on their experience and photography style so that our work comes together seamlessly.

As someone who didn’t have a wedding video, a wedding slideshow is one of my favorite features that I offer. When your album is delivered, you will see a slideshow of my personal favorite images of your special day set to music from your ceremony or reception.

Yes I love to travel, and love to capture new places even more! I am based in Nashville, but have lots of experience traveling and shooting in Florida and New York. I would love to expand this list!
