Frequently Asked Questions
HOW FAR OUT SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
The sooner the better! I book out anywhere from 18 months to 2 months in advance. It just depends on the season and date!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SHOOTING AND EDITING STYLE?
This question always stumps me because I don't really fit into a category. I shoot in a documentary style. I believe in telling your story, rather than just taking photos. As for editing, I’m not bright and airy, and I’m not moody. I fall in between, and I believe in staying true to color, rather than desaturating everything. I want the location you choose to look, well, like the location. I want to make sure that I edit the photos so that when you look at them, you are brought back to the place you chose to get married, rather than some overexposed or desaturated version of that. I would say that I edit in a timeliness, romantic, emotion-filled style. I try to avoid trends so that when you look back on your photos in 50 years, you don't see something that looks dated and weird. Instead, all you will see is your love and the emotions you felt on your wedding day
DO YOU BRING BACKUP GEAR TO WEDDINGS?
Abso-freaking-lutely! I am definitely a "worst-case-scenario" person, and while nothing has ever happened to my gear, I would hate for that to happen at your wedding. So yes, I always carry backup gear, just incase!
I SAW YOU ARE LOCATED IN NORTH CAROLINA. DO YOU TRAVEL?
Heck yeah I do! I travel all over the states to photograph love stories, and it's one of my favorite things about my job. I am also are willing to travel internationally. Check out my bucket list here!
WHERE EXACTLY IN NC ARE YOU LOCATED?
My "home-base" is the Charlotte/ Lake Norman area, but most of my weddings are in the Asheville area!
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
I usually deliver weddings within 4-8 weeks, and portrait sessions 2-4 weeks! Since I deliver every single usable photo, the process varies. But I keep ya updated every step of the way!
DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?
It totally depends on where you are getting married! That said,I offer discounts for certain areas. Check out my travel bucket list to see if your area applies! And if it doesn't, feel free to reach out and I can see what I can do!
DO YOU GIVE OUT RAW FILES?
Nope! That would be like a painter giving out only an outlined picture. Only 1/3 of my work is done after I shoot, and since you are hiring me for your style, I want to make sure you get that!
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU DELIVER?
This is totally dependent on how many hours you book. We will send you all of this info in our pricing guide.
