WHAT TO EXPECT
In my interactions with couples, I always love the question, "so how does all of this work?"
It's easy, I promise.
Step 1: Inquire - Reach out to me & tell me about what you're planning! I'll respond within a business day or two.
Step 2: Consultation - We'll meet for coffee, a walk in the park, or a video chat to talk about your expectations, what I do, & how the process of working together goes.
Step 3: Contract & Deposit - To reserve your wedding date you will need to put down a deposit & sign a contract. I'm not into all that small print stuff, any & all questions you have will be answered before you sign.
Step 4: Chart Our Path - We will start putting all the details together, timelines, locations, etc. We'll build mood boards & work on interlacing all your inspirations into my work flow. I have lots of planning resources I will share with you!
Step 5: Finalization - About a week out from your big day, we will take one more glance over our schedule to make sure everything is in line.
Step 6: Wedding Day! - My absolute favorite day ever.
Step 7: Sneak Peek & Delivery - You get a sneak peek asap, so you have images to share & you're able to get an idea of how your images will look! Full gallery delivery is within 4-6 weeks.
Step 8: Lifelong Friendship - Sorry, you can't get rid of me that easy! I can't wait to watch you grow together & see where this life takes you.
How long have you been doing photography?
I have been doing photography professionally for about 8 years. I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds clients. I started off slow, doing it casually, & after obtaining my BFA in 2016, I decided to formally found my business!
How far do you book out?
I am currently booking weddings & elopements through 2023. Your date can only be reserved with a deposit and contract. I recommend booking 9 to 12 months out from your wedding to ensure you're able to save your ideal date!
What is your turn around time?
For weddings & larger packages my turn around time is 4-6 weeks, even during the busy season. Smaller session turn around time is usually between 14 & 21 days. You always get a preview within a few days, usually by the next business day!
Do you travel?
Yes, happily! Whether it's just a few hours from my home base in Indiana or halfway around the world, I will travel with you! I am always down for an adventure elopement or intimate wedding somewhere beautiful.
Do you always retouch your photos?
Yes, with your best interests in mind. The process I go through while editing your images is one full of creative decisions, including how the image looks balanced, control of the lighting, object removal, blemish correction, etc.
Can you help us with planning?
Yes! No matter what session you're booking, customized planning is included. We will go over styling decisions & why they matter, picking locations & the right time of day to photograph. I will help you during the session with posing & activities, but I am always open to seeing any inspirations you may have as well.
