In order to officially book, I need to have a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer of 25% of your total package. This retainer ensures that I can turn down other work on that date and it also covers my cost of time spent planning/ cost of supplies, ect.
Do you travel?
I have been lucky enough to shoot weddings all across the US as well as several different countries. It remains one of my favorite parts of my job. Inquire for a travel quote!
Do you work with assistants or second shooters?
I often shoot weddings alone and feel totally confident doing so. However, I do recommend booking a second photographer if your guest list is above 120 or if you're not planning on doing a first look. I have a list of people I work with frequently and I'll often bring my husband along to second shoot for me.
Can you help us with our day-of timeline?
I love helping couples with their timeline. I will send out a questionnaire before we go over this, we can figure out what your priorities are. I don't want to spend an hour taking portraits if you'd rather be with your guests, and likewise, if portraits are your priority, I want to make sure we have ample time for them while still being present with your friends and family.
Do you offer albums and prints?
I'm a big time believer in printing and displaying your images! I don't include them in my packages so that you're not paying for something you may not want, but I do offer full printing service for photos, books, canvases, and albums. You will have access to this service as long as your gallery is online, so there's no pressure to decide on what you'd like printed until after your event.
