You've got questions? I've got answers
Are you LGBTQ friendly?
Heck yeah, I am! Bring on any shape, size, gender, orientation, preference, identity — love is love, ya’ll. And I am a big fan of documenting allllll kinds. I’m constantly grateful that my job allows me to witness so many different celebrations of love — they are all different, and all so beautiful. <3
I love your site - you seem so fun! What's the next step?!
Oh I'm so flattered you like my work - thank you! The next step would be to fill out my contact form. From there, I'll set up a time to meet with you in person, or via the phone/FaceTime if you don't live in the area - I prefer to meet face to face (or, online face to online face), as I really want to get to know you and your person before the big day and answer any questions you may have. After that, I'll send you over my contract and will ask that you sign it and return it to me with a retainer to book your date.
Why should we hire you?
Honestly? If you don't feel that you've connected with me through browsing my site or even after we meet up for a coffee/drink of some kind, you might not want to book me. My ultimate goal is to connect with people so that I can photograph them in the best way possible. To do that, I need to feel like I know you a little bit - what you like, dislike, what your favorite ice cream is, etc. If we don't jive, we might not be the best match - and that's totally fine! There are many talented and amazing wedding photographers out there and I would be happy to recommend someone else to you whose style might be a better fit. But, if you're looking for fun, happy, easy going vibes - then I'm your gal! Both the connections we make with our clients as photographers, and the beautiful, emotional moments we document for you on your wedding day make this one of the most fun jobs on the planet.
How would you describe your photography style?
It’s genuine, fun and romantic. I laugh...um, a lot. Well, I giggle a lot - and love when people are happy and laugh right along with me. (I’m also pretty clumsy, so heads up on that). My style leans a bit more towards the photojournalistic/candid side of things than the standard wedding photographer side. What does that mean? It means I’m here to document real moments. Not perfect moments, not curated Pinterest moments (although there are some ahhhmazing ones out there!), but YOUR moments. The good, the funny, the inappropriate, the wild and crazy and the real. No matter how your day unfolds, I will be there to help you remember it all. Will I prompt you? Of course! There is a time and place for that in your day (especially when we capture those breathtaking portraits of the two of you — I do LOVE a good portrait). What I won’t do is interrupt the flow of your day to capture something in a way that it didn’t organically happen. I will be there to photograph you as you in the most beautiful light possible. I promise.
Lastly, my editing style adds depth, but keeps things real - because in 20 years you want to remember yourself as you were - beautiful, happy and in love. <3
Do you travel for destination weddings?
Abso-fricken-lutely :) I'm already booked for a Jamaica wedding next May. I include travel for most U.S. locations in my rates, and I offer special rates for International weddings, so if you’re thinking of getting hitched anywhere inside or outside of the U.S., send me an email and we can work out the deets!
How many photos do we get in the final gallery?
Each session and event varies, but for couple sessions/engagements/proposals I guarantee a minimum of 25 fully edited, high resolution images that you may download and print/share wherever your heart desires!
Weddings usually tally somewhere around 600 - 800 for full day (8 hour) coverage. Each image in your final gallery is hand edited one by one.
How long will it take to receive the final gallery of images?
It's one thing to spend 8 hours photographing someone's wedding, and it's a whole OTHER thing to choose the best images and edit them to look the absolute best that they can. It can also be a time consuming process - you don't want to rush these! I know how excited you are to receive the final gallery - trust me, I've been there. But I promise you the wait is worth it! On average, couple sessions, engagements and proposals usually take about 2-4 weeks and full weddings/larger events will be delivered somewhere around 6-8 weeks. I try to get them done as soon as I can, though -- these times are based on my busy season.
Do you have business insurance?
Yes, absolutely! I'm fully insured and registered as an LLC in the State of Vermont.
How do we officially book the date with you?
I require a signed contract, as well as a 25% non-refundable retainer payment to consider you booked on my calendar. From there, I'll send you a questionnaire to get to know the two of you a bit better and we will chat regularly leading up to the day of your session/wedding/event.
Where can I find more pricing information?
Head on over to my contact page and fill out my form -- I'll send you over a little more about my work, as well as some pricing info. From there -- I usually love to take my couples out for a bev to get to know them a bit better before they book me for their big day. After all, your photographer might be spending more time with you than your other half on your wedding day -- we might as well get to know each other :)
