Do we need to meet before booking?
Not at all! But if you're local to the Memphis area + our schedules align, I would love to! I don't meet with every couple, though. A phone call or FaceTime are totally perfect too.
How do we book?
I'll send over a contract + you both will sign it digitally. It's a $1000 retainer to hold your date. The balance is due 30 days before your wedding date. Super easy! If you need a payment plan, don't hesitate to ask.
Should I add a second shooter?
Totally up to you! I like the company + often use the second shooter to cover things I couldn't cover because I can't be two places at once. For example, if you want getting ready coverage of both guys + girls and are getting ready in different locations, you'll need a second shooter. Adding a second shooter also allows for more photos to be included in the gallery - the more photos being taken = the more photos included in the gallery. I've covered weddings alone + with second shooters + never have had anyone regret their decision either way!
Should we do an engagement session?
In my opinion, engagement sessions are so important! They of course don't make or break anything, but I love getting to know you before the wedding day with an engagement session. They allow for us all to meet and work together before your wedding day. I find it makes the guys more relaxed and know what to expect when the wedding day comes around. If you're on the fence, let's chat about it!
How will we receive our photos?
In an online gallery you can view, download, and print (if desired). You will receive a download code so you alone are able to download the gallery. Images will be ready anywhere from 4-10 weeks after your wedding, depending on the season.
How many images will we receive?
I deliver anywhere from 40-90 images per coverage hour. So an average wedding gallery is between 400-800 images. It totally depends on quite a few factors including: how much coverage you choose, the amount of details,
Do we get all of the photos?
Not all of them, but I promise you'll get all the keepers! I carefully choose which photos are deliverable + edit those for you. Mid-blinks, blurry photos, and unflattering photos are about the only photos you won't receive though! I also don't deliver unedited aka RAW photos.
Do you travel for weddings?
Of-freaking-course! I love traveling! I'll travel for your elopement (no guests), intimate wedding (fewer than 50 guests), or wedding with minimal travel fees! I've gotten to travel to Sonoma County, CA, St. Louis, MO for weddings + in the upcoming year, I'm headed to Denver, CO, + Ireland! Don't be afraid of travel fees, either!
