Frequently Asked Questions

Updated: Jul 1, 2020

How many images will I receive?

I don't like to put a limit on this, but you can expect around 600-1,000 depending on the package you book.

Do you travel for photoshoots?

Yes, I sure do! I am based in Nashville, Tennessee but have traveled all over the United States. Let me know where your wedding or session will be and let's talk! P.S. I'm DYING to go to Europe ;)

Do I get the RAW photos?

Nope! RAW files can only be opened in professional editing software and they don't look that pretty compared to the photos you see on here. They are suppose to be edited and you'll get beautifully finished photos that are ready to be printed and shared with everyone. 

For an engagement session what should we wear?

Wear what makes you comfortable and confident, but also something you can move around in! Color is welcome but stay away from bright/neon colors and loud or bold patterns that will be distracting.

How soon can I expect to receive the images?

You can expect to relive your day all over again within 6-8 weeks of your wedding date. I go through and edit every single image to correct exposure, contrast and color.

How do I get the images?

You'll receive an online gallery with edited, high resolution images which are available to be downloaded and also allows you, family and friends to order professional prints.

Do we need an engagement session?

An engagement session is a great excuse to have more fun photos with you and your fiance and a good way to see how I work. Even if you decide to not have an engagement session, we will still have a wonderful time and make magic on the day. Puns and Dad jokes are included in every session at no extra charge ;)

Do we get a print release?

Yes! It is included in your online gallery which gives you the opportunity to purchase inexpensive but high quality prints.

What is your style?

I shoot very candidly and documentary style. My edits have vibrant colors and natural tones so you can look back on your day for how it truly was. I love the raw and real moments that happen between your fiance, family and friends. I'm loud when I need to be during family formals and bridal party portraits. You'll find me smiling the whole day, crying when you are, and dancing during your reception with you.

What will you wear to my wedding?

Since I like to blend in, I'll wear modest, practical and darker clothing that I can easily run around in.

What is the process with you like?

After we chat and get to know each other and meet to see fi we are a good fit, a 30% non-refundable fee is required at the signing of contract to secure your date. Payment plans can be set up and the full amount is due 2 weeks before the wedding date.

Can we get a few images right after the wedding while waiting for the rest?

Yes! A few days after your wedding date I like to send you 5-10 images to enjoy while waiting for the full gallery in 6-8 weeks.

What happens if it rains the day of our shoot?

Honestly, roll with it. We can find shelter under awnings, take photos near windows, and run outside when there's a break in the rain!
