The FAQ

How long have you been doing this?

I started doing senior photos in 2017, and in 2020 shot my first 3 weddings! I've just kept growing from there :)

How many photos do we get?

It depends on what kind of photography service you're looking for and how long you book me to shoot. I never cap the amount of photos I'll give you. I will always pull all of the best photos from the shoot and give them to you. If you have a certain number of photos you want, I will make sure I get that specific number, and more. Just contact me and I'll make sure you get exactly what your looking for.

How do we get our photos?

Once all the photos are processed and edited/retouched, I will upload them to a gallery here on pixieset and will send you an email with a link to view the gallery. From there, you can download the photos you want and even purchase prints and cards right from the gallery! No need to save them then find your own place to get them printed.

Do you retouch photos?

Yes! I shoot all my images in RAW format to allow for the greatest editing capabilities. I will always adjust lighting and tone and remove any blemishes you'd like. (stubborn zits that show up morning of, that mole you don't really love...etc.) I do not do any major photoshopping like editing body sizes or adding makeup.

Whats your turn around time?

Depends on how long you book me. Typically turnaround for senior photos or couples photos is 1-2 weeks. Wedding photos can take 2-4 weeks.

How do we book you?

Shoot me an email through the contact page on here and let me know what you'd like to book! I'll let you know if I'm available and from there we'll set up a video meeting to discuss details of the shoot and I'll draft up a contract. Once you've signed the contract and paid the deposit, you're officially booked!

How far out do you book?

I book out a year in advance, maximum. If you have something planned longer than that, we can talk about it for sure.

What should we wear?

It depends on the location and season of course, but you usually want to wear colors that are not in your surrounding environment. For instance, if we were shooting in the mountains, stay away from green and brown. If you're shooting with someone else (ie. couples, family, friends), coordinate your clothes. I can always send your photos of outfit ideas and you can send photos prior to the shoot of what you're thinking of wearing to get some feedback.

Can you help us with planning?

I can help you plan outfits, locations, things to do...etc. I can certainly give recommendations and tips on planning your event, wedding or other! I've worked many events to know what went well and what didn't for other people, so I'd be happy to help out!

What should we do for an engagement session?

I would love to shoot your engagement session! Whether you hire me for your wedding afterwards or not, I'd love to celebrate this amazing milestone in your relationship. Just contact me and we will talk about what you're looking for. Perhaps you want to re-create your proposal, or maybe go to a gorgeous location for some beautiful photos to put on your wedding invitations. Let me know what you're thinking and we will build a beautiful photoshoot with you and your fiance!
