WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF?
I live in the adorable small town of Frederick, Maryland! I am from Knoxville, TN and travel there quite often for weddings and sessions.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Documentary storytelling. There is nothing more important to me than photographing the feelings and moments on your wedding day.
WHAT GEAR DO YOU USE?
I use a Nikon D750 + D800 full frame camera. I have 70-200mm 2.8, 85mm 1.4, tilt shift 24mm 3.5, 50mm 1.4 and a 35mm 1.4 lens. I'm ready for any type of lighting, and focal range! I also have two flashes for the reception!
HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU SHOT?
I have shot well over 100 amazing weddings.
HOW DO I BOOK YOU?
You can head on over to the CONTACT FORM and shoot me an email! After we get to know each other, chat and become great friends, I'll send over the contract and collect the 50% downpayment. Then the real party begins!
SHOULD WE HAVE A FIRST LOOK?
Well it is truly up to how you all feel about having a first look as a couple, remember it's your day so don't forget to do what feels right! From a photographers view, I highly recommend seeing each other before the ceremony, it generally soothes nerves and then you can take couple and bridal party photos before the wedding. That leaves you all free jump into the reception festivities right after the ceremony!
WHAT IF AN EMERGENCY HAPPENS AND YOU CAN'T SHOOT MY WEDDING?
Never fear. Nothing horrible has happened so far but if so I have quite a few talented colleagues ready to jump in, make beautiful images and save the day. It is all spelled out in the contract I send you.
HOW CAN I MAKE MY WEDDING ECO-FRIENDLY?
I wrote an article on my blog about this topic, feel free to read it- here
DO YOU PHOTOSHOP?
Nope! You are beautiful just the way you are :)
DO YOU BLOG EVERY SESSION AND WEDDING?
Unfortunately not every wedding, I wish there was more time in a day!
WHAT ARE YOUR OFFICE HOURS? WHEN CAN I EXPECT AN EMAIL FROM YOU?
My office hours are 9am-5pm Monday-Friday. I do my best to respond quicky!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY IMAGES AFTER THE SESSION?
I guarantee your edited images will arrive in your inbox three months after your wedding! But you'll have plenty of sneak peeks to tie you over till the delivery day! Within a week after your wedding I will email you sneak peek!
It takes two months to receive images from an engagement session or portrait session.
HOW DO I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
You will get your images sent straight to your inbox via PIXIESET. It's a beautiful online hosting website where you can share with your friends and family, order prints and download your images!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SHOOTING WEDDINGS?
Oh my, I've been shooting for over six years now!! I've shot well over 100 weddings and have LOVED every second of it. This is my full time job and I'm head over heels in love with photography.
DO YOU ALLOW CHANGES OF CLOTHES DURING THE SESSION?
Yes as many as you'd like! But I recommend bringing a max of two outfits because it can cut into our session.
WHAT TIME OF DAY DO YOU SCHEDULE SESSIONS?
I schedule the sessions on a weekday Monday- Friday, either at sunrise or sunset when the light is soft and glowy!
DO YOU SHOOT WEDDINGS AT PLANTATIONS?
No. For moral reasons I do not.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO A SESSION?
Whatever makes you feel your best and happiest! If you like snuggies then by all means wear a snuggie to our session! These photos are meant to showcase you and your happiness. If your completely stuck on what to wear I designed a PINTEREST BOARD to help you out!
