I am sure you still have a TON of questions right now. Or maybe you don't even know where to start on this journey. Don't worry, I gotchu! Check out some of my frequently asked questions and see if it helps calm the nerves! If you have any additional questions feel free to contact me!
Chances are....you've never done this before! I kept that in mind and want to make this process as easy as possible for you. Not sure what to wear? Don't know where you want to go for your engagement photos? Need alllll the vendor recommendations for your big day? I will be by your side every step of the way!
I typically suggest booking 2-3 months in advance. However, this can differ based on the season. Busy season in Arizona is from September-March so if you are looking for a session during this time I suggest booking 4-5 months in advanced. If you are looking for a last minute session please don't hesitate to reach out! Sometimes, things change and I can squeeze in these last minute sessions!
If you've already put a deposit down on a date and then have to move/cancel this date, the deposit is legally non-refundable but it can be transferred to a new date I am available. If you choose a date I am unavailable, the deposit is still non-refundable. I highly recommend speaking with me about dates you're thinking of postponing to, to make sure I am free!
Every shoot is different, therefore I do not cap at a certain amount of photos! However, I always promise 75 photos per hour for weddings, couples, and engagements. For boudoir I promise 50 photos per hour.
First I should say that I haven't been sick on anyone's special day (knock on wood). But I will reach out to try and find another photographer to step in my place who is just as capable as I am. After your special day I would receive the unedited images, would edit the photos so they would still look like the end product you hired me for!
After looking through my portfolio and investment tab, send me an inquiry and tell me all about you! Once I receive your inquiry, you'll receive a bunch more information that I hope covers everything you might need! We'll chat and can schedule a phone call or meet up for some coffee to go over everything and answer any questions you may have. If the stars align, we'll reserve your date by payment of a non-refundable deposit and a signed contract.
You know all the adorable couples I showcase on my Instagram, website and Pinterest? I guarantee they said the exact same thing! I do not expect you to show up acting like models! I want you to show up exactly how you are. My job is to make sure you are 100% comfortable and having an absolute blast! I never show up to any session immediately shoving my camera in your face because I know that would make me feel reaaaal awkward. As long as you trust me and love my style everything will be a ton of fun and by the end it will feel like a date night and you will totally forget I even have a camera in my hand. If having a few drinks allows you to loosen up, bring some! If you enjoy jamming out to music, let me know and I will make you a playlist! Anything I can do to help enhance your session, and help you relax just let me know!
We can reschedule if the weather is really awful, but some of my favorite sessions ever have been in rain and storms! And wind? Pshhh... You know all those amazing photos you see of couples where they look so wild and free? I bet wind played a part in that!! Embracing the weather makes for incredible photos. If you're feeling nervous about the weather, reach out and we will chat and decide what's best!
Absolutely, but it's not required at all! You have no idea how much I appreciate it but I also know that you're already investing your hard earned money into having this shoot!
