Commonly Asked Questions About Wedding & Elopement Photography
How far in advance should I book a wedding photographer?
The best time to book a wedding photographer is typically after you have set a date and venue. This is ideally around 6 months to a year (or more!) in advance of your special day.
Should we do a "first look"?
A first look is great for couples who prefer to spend a little extra time prior to the ceremony taking photographs that focus just on the two of them. Portraits after the ceremony can often feel rushed, especially with large bridal parties and families. Another idea to consider is having a first look with one of your parents. Still a sweet and intimate moment to capture!
What are the benefits of having a second wedding photographer?
Typically, a second photographer is helpful for at least a few hours to assist in getting extra coverage of everyone getting ready, the ceremony itself, and the first portion of the reception. This allows for you to have extra images from a variety of angles — at the most important moments!
Are you available for destination weddings?
Yes! I have an adventurous soul and have experience traveling both across the country and across the border! If you are having a destination wedding, let me know and we can include travel as part of your photography package.
Have you photographed at my wedding venue before?
The important part for photography is not actually having a lot of experience with the venue; it’s being able to capture your day in a unique way. Some photographers who photograph regularly at the same few venues end up taking very similar images for multiple weddings. Let me bring a personalized touch to your wedding photos by offering a new perspective on your wedding venue!
How much experience do you have with wedding photography?
I have personally photographed or created wedding films for nearly 60 weddings (and counting!). I’ve worked alongside some of the best pros in the business, and continue to take workshops and courses every year to make sure I’m up-to-date on the right skills to make your wedding photos and videos truly amazing.
How do I reserve you for my wedding date?
Once you have a date and venue booked, we can discuss details for your wedding photography options. After you choose a package, I’ll send you an agreement to sign and an invoice for 50% of your wedding package. Once these are completed, I’m your wedding photographer!
