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.

01.
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.

02.
WHERE WILL OUR SESSION TAKE PLACE?

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. 

03.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS SHOULD I EXPECT TO RECEIVE?

For a portrait session, the amount of images can range from 50-60+ and for a wedding (depending on coverage hours), you can expect an average of 50/100 images per hour of coverage.

04.
DO YOU EDIT ALL OF OUR IMAGES?

After a session / wedding, I review every single image and select 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!

05.
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?

uuuuuhhh.... heck yeah! I would LOVE the opportunity to enter your home and capture your love there!! Indoor sessions rock my world.

06.
HOW CAN I SCHEDULE YOU FOR A SESSION/WEDDING?

Simply send me an e-mail + 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.
