Frequently Asked Questions
How did you become a photographer?
I fell in love with photography in college when I had to take a black and white film class as part of my curriculum. I even considered changing my major to photography because I was so in love with the process. I ended up minoring in photography, taking all of my extra art courses in photography - both in digital and film. My main focus in my photographs were people and being able to tell their story with just a photograph. My sophomore year in college, my husband (then boyfriend) bought me my first camera that his sister was selling. I tagged along on a few weddings with her and her business partner and I fell head over heels with wedding photography.
How long have you been doing this?
I started photographing in 2015 when taking film courses in college. After I got my first camera, I started shooting everything I could - couples, kids, birthday parties, baby showers, families, etc. Nothing could ever beat the feeling though of photographing a wedding and capturing the best day of someone's life. I shot my first wedding in 2017 as a second shooter and now have over 80 weddings under my belt.
How do we get our photos?
I upload all of my images to Pixieset where you can download the entire gallery or individual pictures straight to your computer from online. The link is also shareable so you can share it with your family and friends.
Do you retouch photos?
I strive to make my photographs look as natural as possible - I don't follow the latest trends of editing 'dark and moody' or 'light and airy.' While I do edit all of your final images, I try not to manipulate much so that it looks as natural as possible and your photographs will never go out of style.
Whats your turn around time?
For weddings, my turn around time is six to eight weeks. I do strive to get photographs back as fast as possible, so I send them out earlier if I have the time. Engagement sessions take up to three or four weeks to edit.
How do we book you?
You can fill out a questionnaire on my contact page and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Make sure you include all of the important details about your special day! I try to make the booking process as easy as possible, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
Can you help us with planning?
Absolutely! I just married my high school sweetheart in 2019, so I'm very familiar and up to date on everything you need to know about wedding planning! After photographing so many weddings, I've also made a lot of contacts with fellow vendors so if you need help picking a caterer, a florist, dj, or videographer, I can help! I also like to help with making your timeline - It can be hard trying to plan everything out if you don't have some experience with weddings. I can help you from start to finish with your timeline to make sure things run smoothly on your special day.
What is the 'keepsake box?'
The keepsake box is a small wooden box that is personally engraved for each couple. Inside will include your 4x6 printed photos along with an engraved USB that has all of your wedding photos already uploaded!
