FAQ'S

WE LOVE YOU! WE’RE READY TO BOOK. NOW, WHAT? 
Well, that’s so exciting!! You’re helping to fund that Disney trip lol! After we have chatted + you decide to go ahead and book your session, I will send you a contract, invoice, and questionnaire. After the contract is signed, you will be invoiced for the retainer fee. For intimate weddings, and elopements I require $1000 down. For portraits sessions, it’s $300 down. The retainer does apply to your final invoice. There are no hidden fees.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE IMAGES?
You will receive an invitation to the online gallery within 8 weeks for weddings + elopements. For couple photos, you will receive an invitation to the online gallery within 5 weeks. At that time, you will be able to download all of your high-resolution images. Any fine art prints will be delivered via post within 2 weeks after the invitation is sent.

HOW ARE MY  IMAGES DELIVERED?
I use a private online gallery to deliver your images. The images are high resolution and the gallery requires a password. You will receive an invitation to the gallery and will be prompted to download the images to your computer.

ADVENTUROUS ELOPEMENTS/SESSIONS?
Okay, so these are totally fun!! This is when we hike to an epic location, and exchange your vows, or take pictures. We will have time for rest before we even begin photographing.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SESSIONS?
Yes! I travel for sessions! If that means that I get to pack my bags and come to you, then it will be my pleasure to do so! Travel fees are added to the final invoice. How can you save? Get a couple of friends to book a session ad split the travel fee!
