Frequently Asked Questions

General Photography

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

My shooting style is very organic. When capturing a wedding day my goal is to be a fly on a wall and photograph the most natural and genuine moments possible. My editing style leans toward the moody side, but is still very timeless. I like to think that the way I edit enhances an image, but doesn’t change it too drastically. If anyone has a better answer to this question, please let me know haha.

CANDID OR POSED?

Candid, ALWAYS!

ARE YOU THE ONLY PHOTOGRAPHER OR DO YOU HAVE SOMEONE ELSE YOU WORK WITH?

I am the main photographer and I am present at every event that I photograph. In the case that I need a second shooter for an event, my husband is always my go to! He was trained by the best 😉

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Both my dad and husband sell insurance, so I have more coverage then I will hopefully ever need. If you’re venue needs proof of insurance, just let me know and I can send that right over to them!

DO YOU DO VIDEO?

Not at the moment, but I have some of the best suggestions for videographers! So please ask!!

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECEIVE FROM OUR WEDDING OR SHOOT?

I never guarantee an exact number of photos but, I average 100 photos per hour, give or take a few depending on the day and type of shoot!

IF I EVER LOSE MY DIGITAL FILES, DO YOU RE-UPLOAD?

The link to download your images is active for two months and you can download them as many times as you want. In the mean time, I highly recommend backing up your images in multiple locations after downloading. But, if for some reason you lose your image files after I take your wedding album down, a flat rate is charged to re-upload them. I will save your images in my archives for at least two years!

HOW DO YOU PROTECT MY IMAGES FROM TECHNICAL ISSUES?

On a wedding day, the biggest thing I do to protect your images is shoot on two memory cards at once. This eliminates the chance of a card malfunction in camera causing me to lose any images.

Immediately after a wedding (literally the same night) I come home and upload all of your images to 2 separate hard drives in addition to an online backup program. I also keep all the images on the memory card until I send you the full gallery! Unless my house burns down, and the internet stops existing at the same time, I promise I got you covered!

DO YOU EVER SEND RAW IMAGES?

I believe that editing is the final touch that makes your images magic! For this reason, I don’t send out RAW image files. Photos that you will want/need will never be left out, I promise! For example, if for any reason you feel like I’ve missed something, (when delivering over 800 photos per wedding, this does happen every once in awhile) just ask! I have no problem going back through the original image files to find a missing photo! I promise to do everything I can to make sure you don’t miss out on memories!
