Frequently Asked Questions
How many images will I receive from each wedding package?
You will receive at least 500 images. The number of images is greatly dependent on what we are covering and how many details you have. With that said, you can expect roughly 75-100 of deliverable images per hour of coverage!
Do your require a deposit or retainer?
To book your wedding date, I require a signed contract and $1000 as a non-refundable retainer.
Why are your wedding packages only for consecutive coverage?
My packages are for consecutive coverage because a lot of times wedding day timelines run behind by 15 minutes or more. In most cases, my dinner break is 10-15 minutes and during that time I am also, backing up photos and double checking shot lists. After I finish eating I start setting up reception lighting and taking table shots or guests mingling as they finish up dinner.
Is it necessary to meet in person before the wedding?
While it is great if we can meet in person prior to your wedding, if you are planning a wedding from another state, don’t worry. We can discuss details on the phone, e-mail or via Skype/FaceTime. When you arrive in town we can meet up for coffee to go over any last minute details.
How soon in advance should we book our date?
Most brides book approximately 9-12 months in advance. If you want to guarantee that I’m available on your wedding date, I recommend signing up at your earliest convenience.
Do you charge extra for travel?
Travel within Colorado is included. I love to adventure and explore new places. I do not charge extra for travel within Colorado. Please contact me for travel fees outside of Colorado.
Who is your second photographer?
My second photographer is, primarily, my husband, Matt. I have taught him everything I know! He shoots similarly to me, but with a slightly different eye! If for some reason he cannot shoot with me, I have a pool of professional photographers that are all incredible!
What is a pre-wedding consultation?
A pre-wedding consultation is where you and I go over the wedding day timeline and requested shot list and answer any last minute questions you might need answered.
How far in advance should I book a portrait session with you?
I would love to have your session booked 2 months in advanced. This gives us time to plan and prepare for your session. But, that doesn't mean that we can't plan a session in less time!
How long will it take to get my photos?
I try my hardest to get your photos uploaded in your private online gallery for viewing in 4-6 weeks.
How will my photos be delivered?
Dependent on your chosen package, your photos will either be delivered a digital download or delivered to you on a custom USB.
What print products do you offer?
I offer many different products. You can find the most common here.
Do you offer mini/shorter sessions?
I have discovered from trial and error that having at least 60 minutes with a client gets the best possible results. It gives us more time to get to know each other and become more comfortable. I do offer mini sessions occasionally. Please sign up for my newsletter to be the first to know about them.
