Frequently Asked Questions
Finding the perfect photographer is no easy task! And by "perfect", I mean the perfect photographer for you. Your photographer should be someone that is like you in a way... someone that can easily bring the best out of you and someone you will feel comfortable with. Most importantly, your photographer should be someone you trust. After all, your most special memories are being documented forever. If you've never hired a photographer before, you most likely have a lot of questions. Here are some of the most common questions from my amazing clients that I hope will help you feel at ease and help you understand more of my process and what it's like to work with me.
After 9 years of shooting my little heart away I have been asked a handful of questions almost every single time.
HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
I like to describe my photography style as authentic, romantic, and timeless. Authentic because I work really hard to ensure that I capture real emotions at all times. Romantic because I help you feel comfortable in front of the camera - so comfortable that at times you might even forget I'm snapping away. Timelessbecause love never goes out of style and well, love is EXACTLY what I capture in your images.
HOW IS OUR ADVENTURE LOCATION CHOSEN?
Prior to your session, we will discuss a perfect location for your portrait session. A perfect location is usually a meaningful one, a place where you have created memories or otherwise, a place where you would love to create memories during our shoot.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL BE IN OUR FULL ADVENTURE GALLERY?
Lucky for you I am an over shooter. By that I mean, in a blink of an eye you can sneeze, blink, look left instead of right and I am there to click in hopes of not missing that epic shot. Whether the shot captures emotion, a funny candid or a sweet expression I shoot it! With that said, you can expect 50-75 incredible images. Sometimes I sprinkle a few extras and black/white awesomness.
DO YOU EDIT ALL OF OUR IMAGES?
Absolutely! This is why your investment is more than a sitting fee. I review every single image and choose the very best shots for your gallery. I exclude the obvious "closed eyes"- type of images. I aim to deliver only the best portraits from your session but rest assured, you will receive a large variety of images! I don't believe in keeping great images hostage!
I DON'T REALLY WANT TO GO ANYWHERE FOR OUR SESSION. I WANT TO CAPTURE OUR LOVE RIGHT HERE IN OUR HOME. IS THAT OK?
I almost always say heck yeah! However, I kindly ask for iphone snaps of your home to see how much light seeps in from mid-day to 3 hours before sunset! Then I can make the final call if I feel comfortable shooting. It would be my honor to capture your love in your most intimate and special place - your home.
I’m so ready to go on my adventure! let’s do this!
Simply send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or reply if you have already inquired. I will be sure to send you everything you need to know, including available dates for us to meet and discuss your hopes and dreams for your photographs. I don't want to just be your photographer. I want to be someone you feel comfortable opening up to and someone you trust with your most precious memories.
Photography is an investment. You are investing in the preservation of special moments or a particular era in your life. You are forever documenting a part of your life and will be able to share these memories with your children + their children. When you're 70, you can flip back through old photographs and remember how sweet life has been.
However, please note that I also offer custom packages for weddings so if the packages I currently offer aren't exactly what you are looking for, we can chat + work something out. My priority is that you are 100% happy with your wedding day photography.
