Q. How does your booking process work?
A. I require each client to pay a retainer fee to secure the date of their session. Dates are only held once the retainer is paid so its best to find a date and lock it in as soon as you can. I really want to work with you so don't wait until the last minute ;)
Q. How much are your photography services?
A. My services range by category (graduate, family, engagements, headshots, editorial, etc.) My portrait sessions typically start at around $275. For current wedding season packages please contact by email. Please understand that prices are subject to change at any time.
Q. Do I get to choose my on photographs after we shoot?
A. As an artist, I take great pride in my work. I strive to provide each client the guarantee that they will receive flattering yet genuine photographs of themselves. With this being said, the only way that I feel confident in doing so is by asking that you as a client trust my vision and selection of photographs. I not only try to choose the best photographs, but I handpick the ones that best tell your story as well. I am ALWAYS open to any ideas that you may have and we will work together to define the session to your own style and personality. Let's create MAGIC!
Q. How long will it take to receive my photographs?
A. My turnaround time for portraits is approximately 2 weeks. Due to the high volume of photographs, my turnaround time for weddings is typically 8 - 10 weeks. Photos will be sent in an online digital gallery. Prints are available, by package.
Q. What is your particular style of photography?
A. I would describe my photography style has a relaxed, eccentric, and contemporary. I like to envision the photographs that I take as work that could be seen in an editorial add. With that being said I really tend to prefer a more simple and minimalist approach. Using props really isn't my thing. I feel that they can distract the focus away from the subject. All we really need are a few stylish outfits, good vibes, and your incredible self!
Q. Do you edit and/or retouch your photos?
A. Yes, I do edit my photos to enhance the color and overall quality of the images. As far as retouching goes, I rarely do this form of editing and when I do I leave it to a minimum. I really enjoy the beauty and authenticity of natural photographs. However, if you ever feel as if you would like to better enhance your images with skin retouching, this option is available by request.
Q. Can I bring family/friends to my photo session?
A. Family & friends are absolutely welcome, but I recommend you be very selective of who you invite. Bring someone who brings out your positive side, not someone who points out negatives and nags the entire time. We only want good vibes at your session. Also, please limit the amount of guests to a minimum of two. I'm all for the BTS snapchats but an entourage can really slow things down. AND time is very valuable during your session!
I hope that covers everything. If there's anything that I left out, please don't hesitate to ask!
