Frequently Asked Questions
Do you travel?
This is my favorite question! I 100% travel and LOVE to! I will travel wherever you take me! I am based in Virginia, but certainly not bound. My soul yearns to travel and I love experiencing God’s creation even in the working field. I will do everything in my power to make traveling happen!
Do you shoot destination weddings?
Yes! I have never turned down an opportunity to capture a destination wedding. As I mentioned above, I LOVE traveling!
How would you best describe your shooting style?
Organic, journalist, playful and warm! I am way more drawn towards those real and candid moments. The moments I’m not telling you what to do but rather capturing who you really are without me even there…that’s what I am striving to capture! Though, I promise to always give guidance and direction in posing if desired.
What is your editing style?
I tend to edit more on the warmer side, but not enough to be considered part of the trendy "orange skin filter” bracket. I like a good middle ground. Not light and airy nor dark and moody. I want to stay true to color and making sure I don’t discolor any of your cute clothes or natural skin tone!
What is required to book?
I require a 50% upfront for all of my sessions and weddings. The remainder is due the day of your event or meeting prior to.
Do you have back-up equipment?
You bet! Thankfully I have enough back up equipment to ensure that I will always be prepared no matter the circumstance. Things do happen, but I never want to be unready. Currently, I have three Camera bodies, four lenses of various sizes, two flashes and a mountain of batteries and memory cards to ensure that I will never be without!
What is your turnaround time?
For my sessions the turnaround time is 1-2 weeks and the turnaround time for weddings is 6-8 weeks and elopements is 2-4 weeks.
Can we bring friends and family along for the session?
My preference will always be no. From years of experience, my couples have always engaged better being intimate and alone. Having an audience has become more distracting rather than helpful. I truly want to create an experience where you can be yourselves without any other voices or opinions; just you, your lover, nature, maybe some good tunes, and my camera shutter! :)
When is the best time to shoot?
Unless I am shooting a full-day wedding, all my outdoor sessions take place at sunset or sunrise. The blue and golden hours are the best times to aim for.
Do you offer prints?
Absolutely! You can order prints straight from your online gallery through my preferred printing lab, MPIX.
Do you deliver any raw images?
No thank you! Editing your images is part of the art and part of my branding and above all what makes your product a FINISHED product. Not to mention, they are almost impossible to send due to their massive size.
How long will my session be?
Full outdoor sessions last about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Do you offer albums?
I offer Albums professionally designed through “Millers Printing Company”. I just may be their biggest advocate and supporter. I love their albums with all my heart and I recommend them to all my couples! You can never go wrong when leather bound and canvas spreads are involved.
