The delivery timeframe depends on the type of session and season. My goal turnaround time for each session is 3 weeks for portraits and 5 weeks for weddings.
Images from each session/wedding are delivered via an online gallery that is perfect for sharing & downloading.
Each session and wedding package comes with minor retouching—nervous pimples that pop up before the wedding day, minor clutter in the background, etc. Typically, I leave the wrinkles. I take a natural approach to photography and think that those beautiful wrinkles are part of what make you special. (: Where more extensive retouching is requested, there will be an additional fee.
Printing rights give the client (you) legal rights to print a photograph. Many photographers do not give printing rights, making it illegal to have prints made of any images taken during a session. (Note: Even if you are in the images, the copyright is still owned by the photographer.) I provide a print release with each package, because I want to encourage my clients to print their images and enjoy them outside of the digital space.
WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH A PRINT RELEASE
> Unlimited printing of your pictures (quantity & sizes)
> Posting of files on your social media (please credit me
as the photographer when posting)
> May use digital files on your Christmas card
> Digital file to keep forever
WHAT YOU CAN'T DO WITH A PRINT RELEASE
> Violate copyright laws, which include editing and cropping images (Instagram filters count as editing and are not permitted)
> Enter images into contests to win monetary or non-monetary prizes
> Sell the images for commercial use, or any other means of making money with the images
Yes, you can purchase high-quality, archival prints, albums, and folios. Most prints and products can be purchased through your online gallery, and additional products can be purchased by emailing email@example.com.
Each full portrait session comes with 75-150 images, depending on timeframe, location, couple/family, etc. Each mini session comes with 20-70 images.
Gone are the days of white shirts and khakis for photo sessions. I email an outfit guide after booking for every session to help inspire you. I'm always available if you want to run your ideas or any questions by me. Best rule of thumb? Dress up a little more than you normally would—but still go for comfort!
Absolutely! I love to travel to new places for sessions. Travel fees may apply.
Portrait session locations are decided by you! I can offer suggestions and tips for choosing a location. For example, indoor sessions should have ample natural light provided by big windows, and outdoor locations are best where the sun peeks in, even when it’s low.
I try to be as involved as I’m allowed to be with the wedding planning process. I have attended many weddings and can give advice wherever it’s needed. I try to be most helpful when it comes to planning the day-of timeline. Beautiful pictures happen when there’s beautiful light, which means the perfect time of day or a great location for images. When I get to be involved in the planning, the images come out better and the day runs smoother. (An example wedding-day timeline can be found here!)
Yes. I make sure I’m well-equipped at each wedding with a backup camera, SD cards, batteries, flash, etc.
I am available to travel within the U.S. for an additional fee, but do not currently book weddings internationally.
Wedding packages include a combination of day-of coverage, bridal and engagement sessions, and albums and a bridal portrait print. Most brides spend an average of $4,800 on their wedding photography experience with me.
Each wedding is so different, but a good rule of thumb is that you can expect 80 images per hour I’m shooting at your wedding.
