1.How will I receive my files?
Files are delivered via digital download. Once your images have completed uploading, you will receive an email link to your private gallery. You can create favorites list within your gallery, download the gallery in its entirety or download individual photos. Please be sure to download in ORIGINAL SIZE and also in web size. Also, back up your files as your gallery will only remain active for 1 year.
2. How long does it take to receive my images?
Delivery times vary. Portrait sessions will be made available 3-5 weeks* after the shoot. Weddings will be delivered 6-8 weeks after wedding date.
*During peak wedding season (May-Sept), sessions will be made available between 7-9 weeks.
3. Can I have the RAW files or any unedited images?
This will always and forever be a resounding no.
4. How long will the session last?
I typically photograph for an hour and a half, but they can run up to two, especially if we are going several places.
5. How many images can I expect?
For portrait sessions (basically non-wedding) you can expect 40-60 images. For weddings, around 50-75/hr.
6. How many outfits can I have?
As many as you want. I like variety.
7. How should I dress for my session?
This is not a one size fits all kind of question. I always tell people to be wear what makes them feel good or to wear something they don’t always normally get to wear but really want to. Make sure that you keep in mind the location when you’re choosing shoes. Heels are almost always a bad idea. If you want to dress awesome but need some direction, you can always pretend like you’re going to a festival or favorite concert. Hats, blankets, statement pieces that you love are awesome and make photos really aesthetically pleasing. If you need inspiration, you can always check out my outfit inspiration pinterest board here . General rules of thumb: no logos, no dirty sneakers.
8. If you give a photo to me in black and white but I want it in color, what are my options?
I can make additional edits to your photos at your request for $200 an hour. A 30 min. minimum will be billed automatically for any edits.
9. What is the booking process?
A signed digital contract will be sent to your email to book your date. Additionally, there will be a NONREFUNDABLE retainer of $100 on portrait sessions and 30% on weddings DUE AT THE TIME OF BOOKING to hold your date.
10. How should we prepare for our session with you?
Just be ready for an old fashioned snuggle party and maybe have a couple shots, if you so choose. 🙂
