You've got questions, I've got answers! I've compiled a list of frequently asked questions for your convenience. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I have to pay a deposit?
Yes. For each package, I require what's called a retainer fee. This fee is a small portion of your total investment. Each retainer varies by the package you choose. This fee simply compensates me to hold this particular date for you and agree to turn down other clients. Each retainer is due at the time of booking and at the time you sign your contract and is non-refundable.
What the HECK do I wear for my session?
You should always wear what you're most comfortable in! If you aren't comfortable, it'll show. Try to coordinate with your partner or your fam. Wear colors that compliment each other! Ladies, I always suggest a long, flowing dress, maybe some cute ripped jeans and an oversized sweater for the fall. You can literally NEVER go wrong there. Fellas, go for a simple button up with a nice pair of jeans or even some khakis! Neutral colors ALWAYS. Also, try to avoid any crazy patterns. Whatever it may be, just make sure you're both on the same page. If you need some help deciding on a color scheme, peep my Pinterest board here!
Do you touch-up or edit your photos?
Yes! I use a photo editing software called Adobe Lightroom, which allows me to enhance my photos and edit them to fit my particular style. Each photo you receive will be individually hand-edited, one at a time.
Do you travel for photo sessions/weddings?
The short answer to this is absolutely! I do charge a travel fee of $50 per hour if I am driving. As far as destination sessions such as weddings or elopements out of state, the client is responsible for providing airfare as well as rooming costs if necessary.
Will I receive the raw/unedited photos?
Raw or unedited files are not available for viewing or purchase. The images selected for editing and final delivery reflect my very high standards. Rest assured that any images not delivered to you truly are outtakes!
Can I book extra time for my wedding?
Yes, you may book extra time beyond what your package offers as long as it does not exceed 10 hours. There is a $100 per hour fee for any additional time booked. This is one reason it's suuuuper important to have a timeline for your day so everyone stays on track! I always like to link up with your DJ when I arrive at your venue so we can go over everything.
