How do I book you?
You can head on over to the contact form and shoot us an email! After we get to know each other, chat and become great friends, Caitlin will 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, we 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 terrible has happened so far but if so we 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 we send you.

How long does it take to receive the images from my session?

Yes as many as you'd like! But we recommend bringing a max of two outfits because changing can cut into our session.
