What should I/we wear?
We want you to feel comfortable in what you are wearing! We do however, suggest that you steer away from logos or very busy patterns. We highly suggest layers & textures. For group photos, it is best to coordinate your clothing with a color scheme. Choose a few colors and have fun with it! Try not to have everyone wear the exact same thing. If you aren’t comfortable with what you are wearing, you aren’t going to be comfortable during your session, so get creative and have fun with choosing! You want to always look back at your images and love them, right?!
Should I bring anything?
If little ones are involved, bring a few things that can help gain their attention behind the camera! Try to make sure your children have been fed and had a nap before your session for a more positive experience!
How long does my session last?
The actual session itself usually lasts about 1 hour-1.5hours, depending on which package you are looking for.
Wedding Collections range from 5 hours, 7 hours or 9 hours. Additional hours can be added!
How do we book you?
Go to the top of the menu and click “Contact Us.” Fill out the small form and once we receive your email, we can figure out the rest of the details! Try to include the date you are hoping for! You can also email us at email@example.com. To set up a consultation for your wedding, email us by using the contact form and try to include (as best as you can!) your wedding date, venue location, and which wedding package seems most suitable to you! Once we get through the details, we will send a wedding contract with more information.
When/How will I receive my images?
We try our best to get you your images within 2 weeks of your session. Weddings can take up to 8 weeks (depending on the time of year!) Once your images are completed, we will add them to an online gallery for you to view. We choose the best images from your session and professionally edit them. Some images may come in black and white. They will all be in high resolution. Approximately 4 weeks after your session (weddings usually 8-12 weeks depending on the time of year), I will have your custom USB completed, your USB will usually consist of over a hundred & fifty pictures (usually a lot more for weddings, family, etc.). Pictures will be professionally edited, color corrected(if needed), some offered in black & white and all in high resolution. We will usually post a sneak peek photo of the session on our Facebook page within a few days of your session. A photo release form will be included once the images have been sent to you. This allows you the freedom to have ALL the pictures from the day of the shoot, with corrections made, to make prints from anywhere.
Are there any additional charges for me to receive my images?
I charge a one-time flat rate for your pictures which are taken at the location of YOUR choice. The price quoted does include the session, your online gallery containing your edited images with permission for you to share and print the photos from anywhere and keep forever. Printing fees are a separate cost.
Where should I go for printing my images?
We HIGHLY recommend you to create a “Favorites” folder from your online gallery and let us know which sizes you wish to be printed. We go through a professional lab that prints with high quality and is exact to our editing. Consumer labs such as Walmart, CVS, Target, etc. put an additional filter on your images, taking away from the hard work we put into your session! Email us for more questions about printing!
Where will the photos be taken? Do you have a studio?
The location of the photo session is your choice! Ideally we prefer to use natural, available light. For some wedding venues, an external flash will be required because of the lighting situation. Once your session is booked, we will discuss what type of feel you are looking for in your photographs, we can then work together to come up with the perfect location. Newborn sessions are almost always held within the comfort of your own home.
If you have any other questions that we did not answer, please, please, please feel free to email us! We would love to answer any questions you have!
