Here are some of our FAQ'S we get from clients from over the years. We want to be fully transparent with all that we offer so you know all there is about us and how we work with our clients. We are super excited to hear from you anytime if you want more clarification or there is a question we can help with as we know that peoples needs can vary.
What photography services do you offer?

How do I book a photography session with you?
You can fill out our form on our contact page and we will be in touch with you. For some sessions we have an instant booking page on our website that will allow you to find a date for a session you have in mind and book it immediately. We are open to taking calls, texts, emails as well.
What is your photography style?
Our approach through out the day may vary. During a wedding we are looking and scanning for moments to happen and that is candid and documentary. We want to capture what is real, what is impactful. If a moment is happening we let the natural course of the moment to happen and we be sure to not interject. During a portrait session with family we will position people and guide our subjects through some prompts so we can engage everyone and we accomplish great portrait images like that. During a couples portrait session it is a bit of both candid and suggestions and some demonstration if needed. But it is optimal for us to bring out your true energy as a couple and capture those interactions. We dont do any hard posing with couples unless they want us to. We are a mix of matching your vibe and using anlges and lighting to make timeless images of our couples.
What is included in your photography packages?
We offer everything from by the hour photography and film but also offer 2nd photographers, books, engagement sessions, trash the dress sessions, rehearsal party photography. We do have some popular packages we offer but we often customise a package for a client depending on their needs.

What part of the day during a wedding is our personal most favorite to capture?
Wow, so this is a hard question because there are so many great moments during a wedding.
What kind of people do we vibe with best?
Absolutely, I'm a firm believer in the "glass is half full" philosophy. I find that establishing a positive rapport with different individuals is essential, and it goes both ways. When I collaborate with a client, I believe it's valuable for us to get to know each other to some extent. While we may not become best friends, this connection helps foster trust and a smooth working relationship.
My primary goal when working with couples is to provide them with the finest photography and video services imaginable, regardless of the circumstances. This trust is paramount. It begins when clients have seen my previous work and we've had meaningful conversations about their specific needs.
As an individual, I am deeply empathetic, fair, and unwaveringly attentive to my clients' desires. I'm driven to find solutions that allow them to fully immerse themselves in the moment, leaving the technical and logistical aspects in capable hands. Ultimately, my aim is to ensure that every couple I work with can relish their special day to the fullest.
What is the process for booking with you?
We will send you a proposal from our CRM (Customer Relationship Management system) with a service called Honeybook. The proposal will outline with all that you can expect from us as photographers. There is a small form to give a bit of information about your wedding day with locations and dates and times. If you don’t have all information, it’s okay, the form just gives us a rough idea of how the day will go. We will be touch before the big day so we will get a final timeline and be sure that we are all on the same page.
You will be able to sign the proposal and make the down payment of 30% to lock down that date all within Honeybook. It is very easy to use. The final payment is due any time up until the day of if you like. We can also set up payment plans so it is spread out within the time between booking and the day of.
Do we get an online gallery of the photos?
All Packages come with the private online gallery with the high resolution images. All images will not have our logo on them or anything like that, they are all edited and ready for you to do whatever you want with them. You can also share the online gallery with friends and family to give them the same access you have.
Do we get all of our photos?
Yes, all photos are edited and ready for you to share and download, post on instagram and whatever else you want to do with them. The only photos we do not deliver is mid-blinking, blurry or unflattering photos that we know you won’t have any desire to have.
Our average delivery is 50-100 photos per hour of photographing. So a 8 hour package you can expect 400-800 photos. We don’t cap out on how many we give you.
We do not send you any RAW (un-edited) photos. We ask that you trust our process. The editing is the final special touch we put on them that completes the image.
What is the backup plan if a photographer or filmer gets sick?
We have a tight small team we work with consistently and would provide another equal caliber photographer or filmer out to fill in. We would also discount the photography and or video cost by 10% for the trouble.
