FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
YEP, ALL THE QUESTIONS YOU HAVE BEEN DYING TO ASK. I AM HERE TO HELP! IF YOU CAN'T FIND YOUR QUESTIONS, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME!
Q: A lot of couples I know say they regret not investing in a good photographer for their wedding. Why is this so common?
A: This is my motto; invest in memories, quality, quantity, and someone you know you can trust. Clients who love their photos have never complained about the price.
Q: I like images that are warm and contrasted but I don't want my skin or hair turning a different color?
A: Neither do I. My editing style is contrasted, with a warm (or "golden") color vibe, delivering a warm skin complexion. I tend to help my couples not look like a ghost. I will also be very directorial towards you and your wedding party. My posing style is natural, authentic, and intimate. You WILL feel comfortable in front of me, and I'll make sure there are genuine laughs and smiles.
Q: What is your turn around time?
A: Any lifestyle session other than wedding, you can expect a 1-2 week turnaround, although I do my best to finish earlier. Wedding gallery turnaround is up to 6 weeks.
Q: Do you deliver every image you shoot?
A: No, I do not. I get rid of duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. You can be rest assured that I am not gonna skimp out on delivering, I want you to have these shots more than you want the shots, haha.
Q: What do we wear to our shoot?
A: Wear what is comfortable. If you never wear dresses and find it uncomfortable then don’t. I would say that neutrals are always safe, (think earthy tones) but once we get started in our process I will provide my outfit selection guide + my expertise.
Q: Do you shoot Events?
A: Yes I do! Send me and email to hear all the details!
Q: Can you photoshop me to look skinny?
A: I get asked this all the time! The answer is no, sorry, but I can say with absolutely confidence that I'm highly skilled in "shaping/sculpting" the body. Fancy way of saying you'll appear more flattering (never had a complaint about that, LOL).
Q: How do you deliver your photos and how many do we get?
A: I deliver high resolution photos on an online gallery. I don’t have a set number on how many photos you will receive, but I never leave anything out. I don’t put a cap or a limit on what I will deliver. Every session is different and varies from the last & numbers are always changing. If you would like to see some galleries please feel free to ask. I am happy to send over a few so you can get an idea on what I deliver.
Q: Do you give out RAW/UNEDITED photos?
A: Nope, sorry. Under no circumstances will raw/unedited files be distributed to anyone at anytime. I work very hard to deliver my images that stay true to my style.
Q: How do I book you?
A: The best way to book me, is by bringing be Caribou or Starbucks. HAHA, JK, the best way to book is getting in touch by filling out the contact form! Once we get past all the questions & details, I will send you a contract that you will go over, and sign. After all that, we can get to the good stuff and talk about your dream session! EVERY SESSION REQUIRES A 50% BOOKING FEE, and weddings require $750 down.
Q: Do you travel?
A: YES AND IT’S MY FAV! I love traveling and get excited for each opportunity. I am based out of Minneapolis, MN and I am happy to serve clients anywhere! Cost of travel and reasonable accommodations fees will apply. Please email for further details on traveling!
Q: What if I have to cancel my session?
A: This is why I require a non-refundable booking fee, it covers the cost of a cancelled session.
