frequently asked questions

How do payments work?

You can set up your payment schedule however best fits with your budget and life! Most of my clients choose to pay monthly to break up the lump sum and make it more manageable. 


What is the turnaround time for photos?

For weddings, I typically deliver my galleries within 4 weeks. If it is more than that, I will be sure to let you know on the day of your wedding how long you should expect to wait for your gallery. For lifestyle sessions, 1 week turnaround time is typical.


Will you shoot LGBTQ+ weddings or other orientations/religions?

YOU FRIGGIN BET! If it’s a wedding, I’m there. No conditions. 


What kind of equipment do you use on a wedding day? I use 2 Nikon D750 Camera Bodies and 4 different lenses, as well as 2 back up, just in case! I also bring my flash, 4 backup batteries and I always shoot on 2 different SD cards to be sure I have plenty of backup just in case of technical difficulties..


How do we book you?

Start by clicking here and filling out my contact form, then we’ll set up a time to chat either via Facetime or in person if possible! I ask for a 20% deposit and a signed contract to secure your date. Your remaining balance will be due 30 Days before your wedding.


Will you travel?

YES PLEASE! If you’re getting married in a destination spot or eloping, I want to be there with you. Just cover my travel and a few days stay and we’ll call it good. 

Do you offer elopements?

Absolutely. Elopements and Intimate weddings are my favorite things to capture. I even offer special rates for elopements scheduled Monday-Thursdays. Looking to elope in the Blue Ridge Mountains? I’d love to help find that perfect spot for you.


How are our photos delivered? 

I deliver all of my photos via a personal online gallery with edited high-resolution images. This gallery will have a link you can share with any and all of your friends. You will receive roughly 50 images per hour of coverage. You get full printing rights with your gallery, so you can print any and all photos!


Can we see a full wedding or lifestyle gallery?

Heck yes. Once you send me an inquiry by filling out my contact form, I’ll send out several examples for you to be sure we’re a perfect fit.


We’re awkward/shy and have never had pictures before, is that a problem?

I got you boo. I promise after the first 5 minutes of our shoot I’ll have you guys cracking up, snuggling and thinking “What the hell was I nervous about?”
