FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where are you located?

I currently live in Louisville, Kentucky  


Do you travel?

Heck yea!  I love an adventurous couple with a vision!  I do charge a small traveling fee, just to help me get there!  LET'S GO!

 

How do I book my date?

Simple, a signed contract and a retaining fee is all that is required to reserve your date.  Payments are broken up into thirds with the remaining balance due two weeks before your wedding.  

 

How long until I get my photos?

2-3 weeks for portrait sessions.  3-6 weeks for weddings.  Add a week during busy seasons!

 

How many photos do I get?

All of them.  All wedding and photo shoots include a USB of all final edited images.  For a photo shoot that can be anywhere from 50-100 images.  For a basic 6 hour wedding about 400, while a 10 hour day can produce upwards of 800 images.  I really do go for quality over quantity. 

 

How can I share the image with my family and friends?

All of your images are also shared on a private online proofing gallery.  Your gallery link and password is emailed to you, and a simple email or social media blast and all of your people can order their copies without any hassle from you!

 

Can we print our own photos?

Yes!  Your USB is for printing up to 8x10”.  Any larger file will take up more space and make download alot slower.  I’m also willing to bet that you won’t need those reception photos all in large format?  I would recommend ordering your larger prints through me.  The professional lab that I work with has my trust 100%.  They make the images on your wall what they should be.

 

Can we share our photos on *insert social media site here*?

Absolutely!  I want all of your friends, family, instagram and Pinterest followers to see these images too!  The only thing I ask is that my info is shared on the photos.  I do not advertise much because so much of my referrals is this modern day word of mouth.  Plus, if your friends end up hiring me, that means we get to hang again!

 

What kind of lighting do you use?

The sun and the moon.  Ok, ok....  so I also have a camera flash that I like to get out occasionally to add a pop of creativity.

 

Do you have a second shooter?

Generally I find that I am able to plan and successfully shoot weddings solo.  However for the larger weddings I will find a trusted professional to bring along to help cover the basics.  

 

Do you offer products?

I do!  I have these amazing wooden keepsake boxes with matching USB that are made in Denmark.  They are engraved with your names and I fill them with 5x7” goodies from your shoot.  My albums are also incredible!  The cover options are endless and they are affordable and the quality is PERFECTION.

 

I heard you offer film?

I sure do.  I LOVE FILM.  I’ve been shooting film for over half my life.  The darkroom was my first experience in photography back when I was a kid.  My dad even eventually built my very own darkroom in our garage for me!  My obsession with film and the darkroom took me through my undergraduate degree too!  I still do film, 35mm and medium format.  For my film lovers, be sure to ask about what I offer!

 

I also heard you’re getting into videography?

I am!  And I’m still very new to it.  But I’m loving it.  I’m finding a new vision in being able to tell the same love stories through a new medium.  Ask me about my short films ;)
