FIRST THINGS FIRST

Holy crap, it means so much that you’re even considering me to be your photographer for such an important time in your life! I know that with planning a wedding there are so many things to do and it can be overwhelming but my hope is to make choosing a photographer the easiest decision you make. By this point, I’m assuming that you have looked over my work and think I take some pretty good photos but I want the reason you hire me to go beyond that. It’s so so important to me that we connect as humans in order for me to serve you in the best way I can so if you haven’t already, check out the “about me” section on my website! We’re gonna spend a lot of time together on your wedding day (and chatting a lot throughout the process leading up to the day) so I want you to be able to think of me as a friend! The more comfortable you are with me, the more likely you are to show your true self and of course, that’s what I want your photos to reflect - YOU.

If that sounds good to you, then let’s get started!!

Add-Ons

Additional Hours: $400

You can add these on now or later!

Second Photographer: $500

I highly reccomend adding on a second photographer if you have a large guest list because you’ll get a lot more photos of the day with different angles and perspectives of all the moments.

Bridal Session: $500

A bridal session includes an evening of shooting in your dress/suit prior to your wedding day. They allow us to get photos with no stress about timeline or guests pulling you away, and in an ideal location at an ideal time (sunrise or sunset). These are great before the wedding when you do your makeup/hair trial and if you want to have photos of you in your wedding day attire displayed on the day of. I encourage adding one of these on if your timeline doesn’t allow much room for couple portraits, or if we are really limited on shooting locations at your venue. You can do a bridal session at some point after your wedding day as well.

Adventure Session Upgrade: $500

All of my wedding packages include an engagement session but if you’d like a more adventurous experience you can upgrade to one of these! These are PERFECT for National Park engagement sessions! (or other super awesome locations with lots to do and see)

Instead of driving all the way there for a one hour shoot, let’s make a little getaway out of it! We’ll have an “official” shoot at sunrise or sunset, but we will also have plenty of time to hang out together, explore (I’ll casually snap some photos along the way), and really get to know each other before your wedding day.

Let’s knock a location off your bucket list or discover a whole new corner of somewhere you’ve already been!

What’s included:

+ travel up to 500 miles from 91343 ($1/mile beyond that)
+ two evenings of shooting across multiple locations
(this could mean within the same park or at different parks/locations that are relatively close to each other)
+ some epic memories that will last forever 
*you can choose to cover my airbnb for 2 nights or let me stay with you*

FREQUENTLY asked questions

How many photos do we get?
For weddings, I deliver at least 40-50 per hour that I’m there. For sessions, I deliver a minimum of 50. I don’t put a set limit or number, so it depends on how much goes on throughout the day, but I never leave anything important out!

Do we get the raw/unedited photos?
Nope. Never. Editing is a huge part of what I do and if I sent you unedited photos they wouldn’t be an accurate representation of my work. I promise to never leave out any photos that you would want/need but if you feel like I missed something, just ask! I’m happy to look back through my images and get it sent to you!

When do we get the photos back?
Final galleries are delivered within 3 weeks for regular sessions and 5-7 weeks for weddings, but I always send a “sneak peek” within a day or two to tide you over ;)

What does an engagement session include?
Engagement sessions are 1 - 1.5 hours long and you can shoot in up to 3 outfits (time permitting). I always encourage having at least 2 outfits to give your final gallery some variety. I deliver at minimum 50 high-resolutions photos, but final number varies with each shoot!

What if we need to reschedule/cancel?
The retainer is always nonrefundable but I totally get that life happens sometimes. If your wedding date gets rescheduled within one month of booking me, I will transfer your retainer to the new date. The new date must be within the same calendar year. If you need to reschedule an engagement session, the date must be no more than 3 months away from the original. All reschedules depend on my availability and are at my discretion. After the first reschedule a new retainer will be required to hold your date. 

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!


OKAY NOW WHAT?

Think we’re a good fit? Let’s hop on a phone call justttt to make sure! We’ll go over any other questions you may have and get everyone on the same page, then if you’re ready to book I’ll send over a contract and invoice for the retainer!

Once I receive your retainer and signed contract, you’ll officially be booked in my calendar and we can start all the fun planning stuff! I’ll be here for you at any point up until your wedding date so if you need timeline advice or tips on what to wear to your engagement session, don’t worry!

I got you.
