HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER?
I've been in the photography business for 4 years! I've recently changed to specializing in weddings and elopements for the past year or two. I've been taking photographs for fun since I was in high-school, though. My mom was a photographer so its in the genes!
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO CONTACT YOU?
Email, email, email! That is the place I am constantly checking the most! I've I haven't gotten back to you, hang tight!
HOW MANY IMAGES ARE INCLUDED?
All of my collections vary with image amount, but there is a good amount included with each! I want to give you mare than enough images to remember your special day!
WHERE ARE YOU BASED? DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS OR ELOPEMENTS?
I am based out of Knoxville, Tennessee but heck-to-the-yes, please take me on an adventure! I am so down to travel and there's actually a discount if you have a destination session/wedding/elopement... email me for more info!
WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY IF WE WERE TO HAVE TO CANCEL?
Upon signature, I reserve the time and date agreed upon, and will not make other reservations for that time and date. This means turning down other income, to reserve for your event. For this reason, the deposit is non-refundable.
HOW SOON IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK YOU?
For weddings, I typically would advise to book a year in advance, that way we have time to plan your engagement pictures and you're guaranteed that date. For portraits, maybe 2 months in advance, but I am constantly having openings, so always reach out!
"HOW WILL I RECEIVE THE PHOTOS?"
I use an awesome online web gallery that allows you to select favorites and make lists. Then, you can download either by favorites, individual photos, or all the photos at once onto your computer.
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
I pride myself in a quick turnaround for my clients. Most of the time, for portraits/engagements, its a few days. For weddings or elopements, it is 1-2 weeks. I know how quickly I would want to see my images, so I keep that in mind when editing your photos!
WHAT IF SOMEONE IN MY FAMILY/FRIENDS WANT TO BRING THEIR CAMERA AND TAKE PHOTOS, TOO?
I typically go by the idea that hiring me as one photographer means that any other family members, guests, and/or members of the bridal party shouldn’t try to take photos that the photographer is planning/posing, etc. In the end, it makes for a better result in the photographer’s collection to give to the client. Having cameras and phones in the air could distract from the photos.
DO YOU EVER GIVE OUT RAW/UNEDITED FILES?
No, because I believe that editing and culling through the photos is half the magic! The unedited photos are just not the same without it. I carefully go through the images and I promise to never leave out any photos that I know are the winners!
