I’m sure you’ve got your questions - who wouldn’t?! I did my best to answer the most frequently asked questions down below. If you get through the list and still have unanswered questions, just hit the button at the bottom, and email me directly.
Where are you located?
I’m currently living in Georgia, but I make frequent trips home to Maine. Later this year, I’ll be relocating to Colorado and will be available full time there, with limited availability in Maine.
Are travel fees included for weddings/shoots in Maine?
Yes and No. For portrait sessions, we’ll have more flexibility and we may be able to schedule our session during a time that I’ve already planned to be there, in which case, there will be no travel fee. For weddings or sessions that I’ll have to fly in specifically for, I will include a set travel fee to cover my transportation.
What do you shoot with?
I shoot with a Canon 6D, and always have a backup camera on hand. My go to lenses are my 50 mm 1.8 and 35mm 1.4. I also use an external flash for low-light situations.
How will we get our photos and how many do you normally deliver?
You will receive your photos in a personal online gallery with edited high-resolution images, where you can download, share, and print as you wish. I don’t like to set a number because every shoot is different! However, I deliver a minimum of 50 photos for a one hour session and 400 images for a wedding.
Do we get printing rights?
Yes! I’ll provide a print release along with your online gallery, which gives you the rights to print and share your photos however you'd like! However, I retain the original image copyright.
how do we book you?
To get started, fill out this form and let me know what you’re looking for. For weddings, a 20% retainer fee is required when you sign the contract. For all other sessions, a 50% retainer fee is required. From there, you’re welcome to pay as you’d like, as long as the balance is paid in full by the start of the session.
how long does it take to receive the photos?
I do my very best to get you a sneak peek in under a week. Wedding galleries will be delivered within 6 to 8 weeks. For all other sessions, galleries will be delivered within 3 weeks.
how should i pose myself?
Believe it or not, posing doesn’t come naturally for the majority of us. But don’t worry - that’s what I’m here for. I’ll be offering gentle direction and prompts throughout the session to create beautiful and authentic images.
Can i have access to all the photos you take/the raw files?
I use my professional judgement and sole discretion to select the photos to deliver. No unedited or RAW files will be provided. Images are selected and edited at my discretion and delivered galleries may not include all images shot. I use my creative rights to edit and release only the images that meet my professional and artistic standards.
What if I don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera?
That’s okay! I get it - being in front of the camera can feel awkward and nerve wracking, but please do not stress about it. I’ll do whatever I can to help you get comfortable, and to make the session fun and easy! I promise, by the end of it, you’ll forget there’s even a camera on ya.
Do you offer payment plans for weddings?
Absolutely! Once you pay your 20% retainer fee, we can figure out a plan that works for you. Just let me know if you’d like monthly/bimonthly/or a customized payment plan, and I’ll make it happen!
Do you travel?
LOL, YES. I like to say that I’m passionately obsessed (have you seen my travel blog?) There’s nothing I love more than a good ol’ fashioned adventure, so let’s go on one together!
