Frequently Asked Questions



Where can I view full wedding galleries?
Full wedding galleries are a great way to view how I photograph a wedding from start to finish! They can be viewed HERE!

How much do you charge?
General pricing costs are available HERE, but I always encourage prospective couples who love my work to contact me directly- even if I'm out of your budget. I love to create custom coverage for couples to allow them to have great photography in their budget. And I do often offer special booking discounts and deals!

Do you have specific packages?
Sometimes packages can be confusing- I try to make that as simple as possible with just breaking down coverage by hours needed. One of the first questions I will ask you is how many hours of coverage you're hoping for- from a two hour elopement, to a full day 8 hour wedding fiesta. I offer extras like engagement sessions, extra photographers, and albums as a la carte pricing. But I do offer a small package discount for "all inclusive" wedding day photography- meaning 8 hours of coverage, an engagement session, and two photographers. That information on pricing can be found HERE!

How many photos do I receive?
This of course varies depending on a variety of conditions, but my general rule of thumb is about 100 per hour of coverage. I do provide all photos that are usable, and unique. Meaning, I'd rather not give you 10 identical shots, and instead pick the few best. 

How long will it take to get my photos back?
5-6 weeks! Depending on how long your coverage was, and if it's busy season.

How do I receive my photos?
That handy link above to view full galleries is also how you will receive your own gallery! A unique download code is emailed to you, and all you have to do is pop it in, and download your gallery. You can also purchase art quality prints, products, and albums through that same gallery.

Do I have to purchase prints/ albums from you?
Nope! With your digital files you are free to make prints, products, and albums anywhere you'd like. The products you order from your gallery will be archival quality (meaning lasting for 100+ years), whereas places like Costco and Target aren't as high of quality. However, you are absolutely free to do whatever feels right to you.

How do I book my date?
To have your date officially booked, a signed contract and a 30% deposit are required. The contract is online and super easy, and I accept a variety of payment methods for the deposit. Your date isn't officially booked until both these things are in, and dates do fill up fast for Spring and Summer especially!

What if you're booked for my date?
I have a list of some amazing photographers that I am happy to refer you to on the chance that I am booked. I also offer the option to have an associate shooter of mine actually shoot your wedding, but I would still be your contact for everything, as well as the one editing your photos. Many photographers shoot similarly, but editing is where we really differ. I guarantee my editing style and look of work for all my associate photographers.

Do you travel for weddings?
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! I love to travel for weddings! Depending on your location, travel fees may apply, although there are certain "bucket list" locations of mine where I will waive the travel fees for the opportunity to photograph in your area. These locations include: Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska, and Oregon. Please contact to discuss specifics of travel.

Why do you love photographing weddings?
It's often said in the photography world that you either love to shoot weddings, or hate it. And I love it. The first wedding I shot was as an assistant, and I fell in love. Every wedding is unique and special in it's own way, and yet at the end of the day, two people madly in love get to commit themselves to each other forever. How cool is that?!

I hope this helps, and if you have a question not seen here- PLEASE don't hesitate to ask!
