3. What if we don’t want an engagement session? Can we lower our wedding package?
2. Will I get all the raw/original photos?
"Your job is to enjoy your day to the fullest extent and let me take care of capturing it so you can relive it for years to come."
HECK YES! I would love to create a custom package for your destination/elopement! Pricing for elopements start at the same as my weddings, which is $1700 and up! Fill out my contact form and I will get back to you within 12 hours!
1. Do you do Elopements & destination weddings?
I get asked this a fair bit and the answer is no, and for a couple reasons! One being it is unfinished work. When you book with me, you are hiring me for my finished product, which I do by hand-editing all the photos and incorporate my style into them. The second reason being RAW files are quite large, and without a special program to open them, you won't be able to use them.
No. The price of my wedding packages don’t actually include the cost of an engagement session as they are complimentary. I do this because I feel engagement sessions are really good ice-breakers! There’s a chance you and I have never met, or maybe never worked together before, therefore an engagement session gives you and your partner a chance to work with me, get to know me, how I shoot and essentially how your wedding day will go with me alongside you! It’s the best time to shake any nerves about being infront my camera as well if you’ve never had photos done before!
OMG YES!! My booking process is SUPER easy for you! All I require is a flat non-refundable retainer of $750, with the remaining balance is due 14 days before your wedding! To pay, I’ll send you over a booking proposal with the package information, contract, and payment info. You’ll be able to electronically sign your contract & to pay, just send me an e-transfer and you’re set!
4. How long does it take to get my photos back?
5. Do I need a second shooter?
6. How do we move forward with you!?
This is a tough one! I normally shoot weddings solo, however second shooters have some pros! Some pro’s to having a second are: you get more photos, and also in those more photos you will get more variety as the second shooter is there to shoot different angles, and to capture some candid moments that the lead might miss as they’re busy shooting the important things. The cons to a second shooter is there is additional cost to add a second shooter which can get quite pricey depending on your coverage as well as it is another person right there in your space, with a camera pointed at you. Some people find all the many different cameras in their face to be overwhelming.
For all my regular sessions (couples, maternity, family) my turn around time is 3-5 weeks and for weddings it is 8-12 weeks!
