Photos are delivered to you via email in an online gallery along with a print release. The gallery application allows you to download single photos to a mobile phone, or the entire gallery to a desktop computer. You can also share the gallery URL to friends and family members, order prints and products, and share on social media.
The number of gallery images varies, sometimes drastically, because each session is uniquely you. However, I do not limit the number of images I give in my galleries, so every image that I personally feel (from a professional standpoint) turned out good will be edited and added to your gallery. On average, 1 hour sessions include about 70-100 photos, and weddings include upwards of 800 images, with an absolute minimum of about 30 images per hour of coverage.
Unedited, or RAW images are not included in galleries, and they are not sent to clients under any circumstances. As a photographer, my images are my art, and a RAW photo is essentially an unfinished piece of art. If there is a specific editing style you would like for your photos, I would recommend browsing through my galleries and social media profiles to see if I fit your vision!
Turnaround times vary with the season, and how many projects I am working on. An accurate turnaround time will be given when booking, and included in your contract. On average, regular sessions take up to 4 weeks, and weddings can take up to 8 weeks. But don't worry, I always send some sneak peek images within a few days of the session, because I know you are anxiously waiting to see your photos! I also have an option to pay an additional fee for an expedited gallery.
A second shooter is a second photographer that shoots some or all of the wedding with me. The second shooter helps get different angles of photos, and capture different people's faces of the same moment, such as first looks and walking down the aisle. All weddings booked for at least 8 hours of coverage come with a second shooter; because YES, you definitely need one!
Believe it or not, last year I spent over $1,000 in card processing fees...and that seems like SUCH a waste to me. That money could be spent on better equipment, taxes. improving my client experience, and so much more! So, my preferred payment methods is Apple Pay, cash, or check, but I also accept credit and debit cards!
Since the engagement session is complimentary with wedding packages, its regular cost is not actually figured into wedding package prices, therefore it cannot be used as extra coverage time on your wedding day or a discount on your wedding package
OF COURSE!! I absolutely love to travel, and I have a passport, so feel free to take me anywhere in the world! My travel fees are minimal, and simply cover lodging accommodations for one or two nights, depending on the location. Check out my travel map above to see if your wedding or elopement is eligible for a special discount!
