What does your booking process look like? How do we secure our date?
After your initial email, we’ll set up a phone call, or a coffee date so I can get to know you and hear all about your vision for the day! This time is just as much about me getting to know you as it is about you getting to know me! I’m not just your wedding photographer, I’m also your unofficial coordinator/dress fluffer/tie fixer/family wrangler/all around third-wheel to you and your sweetie for an entire day, so it’s important to me that we have a good connection!
To secure your wedding date, a signed contract (which is easily sent and signed online) and a retainer (1/3 of your package cost) are required and then we’re ready to roll!
For portrait sessions we’ll set up a phone call to plan your shoot. A signed contract and retainer are all it takes to secure your date!
Do we need a second photographer?
While I can shoot a wedding solo there are a few instances when I would recommend adding a second photographer. The main one being if you and your fiancé are getting ready in two different places and you would like coverage of both of you. Some weddings simply benefit from two pairs of eyes, two people to keep everyone organized, and two brains to keep the day running on time; this is something we’ll go over in our initial consultation and I can provide my advice!
How many final photos will we get? How long will it take?
I tell my couples that I take about 100 photos per hour. That number then gets whittled down to about 500-700 final photos that I carefully edit and deliver within about 6-8 weeks (generally sooner since I’m so excited to get them to you). I also post a sneak peek of a few photos within a day or two after the wedding because I know you’re dying to share them!
For portrait sessions you can expect about 70-100 final photos within 4-5 weeks.
Yes! I’m insured through a great company, Hill & Usher. If your venue requires a certificate of insurance it’s a simple document for me to send over!
