you've got questions, I've got answers
How will we receive our images? Can we print them ourselves?
All of your images are delivered as high-res, digital files in an online gallery for easy downloading + sharing! Please print them, share them, and ENJOY! All contracts include a print release, so you are free to print on your own! I also offer prints through a professional service which you can easily order straight from the gallery.
When will we receive our images? How many will we get?
You’ll receive a lil sneak peek from your session or wedding within 24 hours, so you have something to hold ya over while I work hard on editing every image. For couples/engagement sessions/portraits, my turnaround time is 2-3 weeks. All weddings are delivered within 6-8 weeks. I’ll always keep you posted on exact delivery times so you’re not left hangin’! I appreciate your patience while I work hard to edit each image carefully by hand. I will deliver every good photo I think you’ll want! I won’t withhold anything - if it’s a quality image, it’s going in your gallery. With that said, I average 75-150 for an engagement session and 800-1,000 for an 8 hour wedding day.
Help!!! We’re so awkward in front of the camera!
It's totally normal to feel a little nervous about having your photo taken - I've been there and completely understand! I promise I'll do everything in my power to help you feel at ease and look your best. You can expect to run around, let your hair down, and laugh a whole lot - & I'll take it from there! Every single person I’ve ever photographed has said they were awkward and couldn’t believe how relaxed they ended up feeling. Trust me, I’ve got you!
What kind of gear do you shoot with? Do you have a back-up just in case?
Heck yes I have a back-up, always! I shoot with professional Nikon gear. I have a variety of lenses + never leave my house without my backup camera
Where are you located? Do you travel?
I am based in San Francisco, California and heck yes I travel! My couples this year are taking me all over the states including Massachusetts, New York, Vermont, Oregon, and internationally to Italy + Bermuda! I’d be honored to travel for your celebration. Contact me for travel fees & a custom quote!
Do we need a second shooter for our wedding?
I'm confident in my ability to shoot all of my weddings solo, but a second photographer helps make sure that absolutely no moment is missed. If you have tons of guests, or you and your partner are getting ready in two separate locations, a second photographer ensures you each have the same amount of photos and I'm not rushing around to be with you both! We can chat about if this option is right for you during a quick consultation call!
What do I wear to my shoot?
I have a what to wear guide I’ll send over to help you out, plus a pretty great Pinterest board too!
