Q: How do I book you?
A: Call me, send me an email, or text me to schedule a free consultation. For weddings all I need is a signed contract and 50% scheduling retainer. For all others I need a signed contract and 40% scheduling retainer. All retainers are non-refundable.
Q: What form of payments do you accept?
A: I accept online payments, cash, and checks. There is a 40% non-refundable scheduling retainer for sessions and a 50% non-refundable scheduling retainer for weddings to hold your date.
Q: How long will it take to get the photos back?
A: For weddings, it takes up to 8 weeks. For all others, it takes up to 4 weeks.
Q: How do I pose in front of the camera?
A: I understand that not everyone has had modeling experience, so it is my job direct you. Your job is to just have fun. I want you to pretend like the camera isn't there and let me focus on all the details.
Q: How many photographers will be at our wedding?
A: It's usually just me and my second photographer.
Q: Are indoor locations an issue for you and do you use any lighting for indoor shoots?
A: It's not an issue at all for me. I use window light when available and if it's not, I use an external flash that's connected to my camera. That's it.
Q: Can you travel?
A: Absolutely! I am located in the Florida Panhandle, but I would be happy to travel to you. If you need me to travel outside of the Florida Panhandle, I will add travel fees to your package.
Q: How many photos will I get from my wedding?
A: For weddings, you will receive around 50 photos per hour, but I do not limit myself to a maximum amount of photos.
Q: What if I already had an engagement shoot?
A: I highly recommend doing another engagement shoot with me anyways. It will help you become more comfortable with standing in front of the camera and give us a chance to get to know each other before your wedding. And weddings booked for 6+ hours include a free engagement session.
Q; What should I wear?
A: I suggest neutral colored clothing, because bright colors tend to draw attention away from your face and can be unflattering to your skin. Neutrals colors don't have to be tan, gray, and white though. It can be any color like mustard is a neutral yellow, navy is a neutral blue, forest green (my favorite color) is a neutral green, etc. Here's a Pinterest board for inspiration.
Q: Can I print my own photos?
A: Yes! I will give you a release form, although I highly recommend you ordering your prints through me to ensure you get the best quality prints. If you display any of your engagement photos at your wedding, please be sure to give me credit as the photographer.
Q: Do you make photo albums?
A: Yes! I order my albums and more from Dekora Album Co. They offer very high quality products.
