For elopements and intimate weddings, YES! I require a face to face meeting with all of my potential wedding couples to ensure that we are the right fit for each other. Our visions and personalities must align in order for your photography experience to be exceptional! I love to get to know my couples in a casual setting such as a local coffee shop or brewery, and talk about your wedding vision. It also gives us a non-formal setting to chat about other things we might have in common, too! I understand that sometimes planning takes place from afar, so if you can't meet with me in person, a Facetime date is a great way to chat, too.
For sessions, a meeting isn't required, but I'd love to chat via email or phone to discuss your session ideas!
WILL YOU PHOTOGRAPH A LARGER WEDDING (WITH MORE THAN 40 GUESTS) OR A FULL DAY WEDDING?
Although I've been blessed and honored to be a part of many couple's full wedding days (including some weddings with 300+ guests!), I no longer photograph these large or all day events.
HOW MANY IMAGES CAN WE EXPECT?
Below you will find the minimum number of images you can expect with each photography service. Actual number of images will vary based on the events of the session or wedding day.
MINI SESSIONS10 images
MATERNITY + FAMILY SESSIONS 25 images
COUPLES SESSIONS50 images
ADVENTURE SESSIONS75 images
INTIMATE WEDDINGS400 images
ARE THE IMAGES EDITED?
All images are edited to emulate the look and feel of film. Using traditional photography techniques such as cropping, burning, dodging, etc.; color, composition, and artistic vision are also taken into consideration when editing. As a general rule, I don't "photoshop" people. If it's part of you, it stays. However, if it's something that will be gone next week (like a pimple), please bring it to my attention and I'd be happy to make it disappear at no additional charge.
WHAT IS REQUIRED TO BOOK?
The first step to booking your session is to visit my booking section HERE. Once you fill out the form, we'll coordinate via email some possible session dates and times. Then, when we figure out a day that works for everyone, I'll send you a contract to sign. The full session fee is due at contract signing to reserve your session on my calendar.
ELOPEMENTS + INTIMATE WEDDINGS:
To inquire about your elopement or wedding date, please contact me using the form HERE. Once I receive this form, I'll email you back to let you know about my availability and we'll start looking at dates and times for us to meet and discuss your wedding vision. When you decide you'd like for me to capture your vows, I'll send the booking form for you to fill out and then a contract to sign. The retainer to reserve your elopement or wedding date on my calendar is $400, and is due at contract signing. This retainer goes toward your final balance. All payments for elopement or intimate wedding packages must come directly from the couple who are being married.
