FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT'S YOUR APPROACH?
My approach is quiet yet involved and directive. I like to think I’m a fly on the wall, observing and admiring you doing your thing and when needed, I jump in and direct. I will never leave you without direction or poses but I also promise to never pose you in a way that doesn’t feel organic and natural. I direct you in a way that feels safe, creates movement, emotion and brings out your true selves. I capture the in the moment feels— the imperfect ones. No awkward poses or cheesy sayings, I want it to be real and vulnerable.
WILL YOU HELP IN THE WEDDING PLANNING PROCESS?
100% yes. I just went through it so I know how stressful and overwhelming it can feel. I will be there for you every step of the way and the most important thing for you to know is when you book me is I won't just be your wedding photographer. I will be there for you through the whole thing and beyond your big day. Whether its grabbing coffee or margs, I'm so ready to become bffs and hear all the fun stuff.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SESSIONS?
Yes! I'm based on the west coast — in Southern California and do travel quite a bit for sessions. I find a lot of my inspiration comes from travel. I try my best to work with my couple to make sure we get the best deals and prices to keep the travel costs reasonable. If you are outside of Los Angeles County, please inquire for more details on booking travel so we can make sure to lock it in.
DO YOU GIVE RAW FILES?
I don't give out any access to raw files as a huge part of my business is in the post production process. I find a lot of the uniqueness of my work is found in the editing process so I would never deliver a half-done job. If there is a specific photo of a family member that I missed, please don't hesitate to reach out and I can get that to you as soon as possible.
HOW MANY IMAGES CAN WE EXPECT?
For every hour shot, I deliver around 100 images. This varies depending on the wedding but for the most part, for a 10 hour wedding, you can expect around 1,000 images.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
For weddings, you can expect a turn around time of 4-6 weeks. For engagements and all other sessions, you can expect your photos to be delivered within 2-4 weeks of your session. You also have the option to pay for a rush delivery service.
WHAT DO WE WEAR?
I will help you with that in every way I can! I feel strongly that styling is a huge component of my work and the colors you choose to wear can make a difference on the feeling of your photos. I will help you decide between options but ultimately, I want you to wear what makes you feel like you.
I FEEL AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA — HELP!
Don’t worry! I will give you all the direction you need. My way of guiding you will be more hands off, that way I’m still able to capture the ‘in the moment’ feelings. I can’t tell you how many times my clients have said this to me and then end up having an absolute blast. My husband is one of them, he isn't a huge photo guy, but when directed properly and given the space to be himself, he ends up loving getting his photo taken.
