You've got questions? I've got answers!
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions I get, take a minute to read through them and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any more!!
How does your payment schedule work?
I require $500 retainer to secure your spot on my calendar, and the remaining balance is due 1 month in advance for weddings and on the day of for sessions. You can split these payments if you’d like to help make it more affordable. I’m happy to work with your schedule!
Can you photoshop us?
I believe in promoting self love and body positivity, so I don’t alter the way you look other than skin blemishes or anything temporary that would not normally be there (bruise, scrape, acne etc unless you’d like me to keep it the photos). If you’re especially self conscious about something, please let me know as I’ll be sure to be extra aware of that while I’m posing you. Also if you want me to photoshop in lightsabers or a dinosaur I can definitely do that.
What if we need to cancel / reschedule our shoot or wedding?
If you’ve already put a deposit down on a date then have to move/cancel it, the deposit is legally non-refundable and a new deposit will have to be made in order to hold your new date.
*COVID-19 cases: in the event that your elopement/wedding is forced to be rescheduled due to Covid-19 and I am available, we can reschedule your date without putting a new deposit down. If you decide to cancel altogether, your deposit is still legally non-refundable.
Where are you based out of and do you travel?
I am based out of Atlanta, GA and travel all over the southeast serving clients. I am BEYOND down to travel and can’t wait to celebrate with you.
How many images do you include?
Each one of my packages varies in how many images are delivered, but I promise I’ll always include plenty of images of everything I capture. I don’t like to give a cutoff number because I don’t believe in withholding any images from you to get you to pay more like some photographers do. These are your memories, I promise to capture them fully and give you more than enough images to remember this time in your lives.
What is your turnaround time?
The turnaround depends on how much I shoot, how busy I am, my travel schedule, and the holidays. Typically, for sessions it takes 3 weeks or less and weddings take 8-12 weeks. I try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image needs.
Do you give RAW unedited photos?
No, as I believe that editing is half the magic that goes into images and without this huge step the images are only halfway done. I promise to never leave any photos out that you’ll want/need, and if you feel I missed delivering a photo, just ask! I’m more than happy to check back through my images and send it over to you (I make mistakes, no lie!). I won’t let you miss out on your memories!
What if there’s bad weather?
I always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way, as it’s beautiful and unique in photos. If it is harsh enough that it would make for a shitty time at our shoot and I can reschedule, then we totally will!
How do travel expenses work?
My travel fees are all presented as flat rates to make it as easy for you as possible!! No hidden cost of car rental or hotel rooms - I've got you and I take care of all bookings and reservations to make it as stress free on you as possible!
Check out my Upcoming Travels to see if I will be in your area and talk to me about a discounted travel fee.
Do you help with the planning process?
Absolutely! As soon as I receive your deposit, I will send you over my Wedding Guide which has a ton of tips and tricks. Let me know what you need help with, if you need recommendations, and if there’s anything I can do to make the process easier for you! If you are interested in having me help create your timeline I will send you a questionnaire about 3 month before your big day and we will schedule a phone call to walk through everything before I send you a finalized photography timeline.
What happens if you can’t make it to our wedding?
Heaven forbids this happens, as it would only happen if it were out of my control (act of god, illness, death, etc) but in this case I would do my best to help find a replacement photographer to take my place that I trust with a similar style. If I can’t make it to your wedding your money will be refunded.
