frequently asked questions
Do you travel and how do travel fees work?
YES. I love traveling and will literally travel anywhere in the world for you! For weddings, all travel costs are included in your total package price.
For sessions, up to 75 miles from 91602 are included in the package price and anything beyond that is charged at $1 per mile (one way). If the location is more than 3 hours away, there may be an additional fee for an overnight stay and/or flight depending on distance.
How do we receive our photos? Do we get a print release?
All your photos will be delivered via an online gallery that will be available for downloading and sharing for at least a year. I will have your photos backed up in multiple places here on my end, but I highly recommend you download your full gallery and back them up yourselves as well. And yes, you have personal printing rights :) (getting your photos printed is also something I highly recommend!)
How many photos do we get?
For sessions, you can expect a minimum of 50 photos. For weddings, you can expect at least 50 - 75 photos per hour. I don’t put a limit or maximum on the number of photos I deliver, so the final count will vary, but I promise I won’t leave anything important out!
Can we have the RAW/unedited photos?
Nope! Absolutely not. Editing is a huge part of my creative process and the unedited photos would not be an accurate representation of my work.
When can we expect our photos?
For non-wedding sessions, your final gallery will be delivered within 2 - 3 weeks. Weddings take about 5-7 weeks. I’ll send you sneak peeks, though - don’t worry!
Are you insured?
Yes! If your venue needs proof of insurance, just let me know and I can get a certificate sent over within a few days :)
What's the booking process and how do payments work?
All I need to hold your date on my calendar is a signed contract and a nonrefundable retainer. (I do everything online so it’s a super easy process for all of us!) For sessions, the retainer is 50% of your total and the remaining balance is due on the day of your session. For weddings, the retainer is $1,000 and the remaining balance is due one month before your date. If you would like to split the remaining balance up into smaller payments, I am happy to work with you on that!
