Where are you based and do you travel?
I am based in Reno, Nevada, and yes, I love to travel! Depending on where the event takes place, some travel fees may apply, but I am a pretty cheap traveler and don't break the bank when it comes to getting to the destination or lodging. I've traveled across the country by train on a 14-day rail pass seated in coach and know how to get down on some Indian street food for pennies, so you know I'm not fancy. Honestly, I find that the journey really makes the destination.
What do you do in the event that there is bad weather?
My equipment can handle it, so I choose to embrace the storm. I think stormy clouds can make for better pictures and memories. It rained pretty hard on my wedding day and it just made the day that much more memorable. They say a wet knot is the tightest knot so what better a way to celebrate a forever union.
Do you include engagement pictures in your wedding packages?
Why yes, yes I do. And why would I include such a sweet deal, you ask? Well because I want to get to know you and help you get to know me. This will make your wedding day feel that much more natural and real. I can also give you some suggestions to help you figure out what to wear for your shoot.
Do you help with planning?
Yeah! I have shot plenty of weddings and planned my own so I am happy to assist in whatever way I can. I will also send you a few questionnaires to help you organize your timeline, family portraits, and more.
How do you photograph weddings?
Let me just say, I’m a fantastic third wheel. I will be following you around from the time you are getting ready with your fabulous bridal party to the time you are busting out your best moves on the dancefloor. I am the kind of confidante you want hanging on your big day because I have been known to not only capture all of your special moments that make up your day, but also hold bouquets, bustle dresses, tie bowties, and put on boutonnieres when you find yourself in a pinch. Simply put, I have your back! I always make sure you have a drink and catch some of your cocktail hour apps that are getting passed around during family photos.
Also, I make sure you have time to enjoy each other during the day. I believe in capturing that real love that exists between you two rather than exhausting you by making you pose uncomfortably all day. You will get a feel for the flow during our engagement shoot.
How many pictures will we receive?
Typically, for an 8-hour wedding, you will receive between 500 to 600 fully edited images. I choose quality over quantity and you will receive all of the images that I feel best encompass every moment of your day.
When will we get our photos?
You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within 8 weeks max (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story) via email. You can download all the photos from the gallery as well as share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints!
Do you offer prints?
Heck yes, I do! You are able to order prints directly from your online gallery. I highly recommend that you think about how you would like your photos to live after you receive your gallery. Find a great space on your walls to hang your framed prints so you can walk by them everyday and relive one of the best days of your life.
Do you make wedding albums?
I do! And I very much enjoy the process of designing wedding albums. Each album is custom designed to each individual couple. It is very important in this digital age to bring your memories to life and preserve them in a timeless way. I can also create an engagement album or guestbook for your wedding from the images we capture during your engagement session. Please get in touch with me for album pricing.
