In case you were wondering...
Here 's some stuff you might want to know before working with together.
Photos: for wedding galleries, you can expect a highlight gallery the week following your big day, and full gallery 8-10 weeks.
For portrait sessions, full gallery delivery is 4-6 weeks.
Films: you can expect your full highlight reel (including bloopers reel) 10-12 weeks after your wedding date.
For wedding galleries, the high resolution images for print purposes can be unlocked with a $150 fee. This is how I ensure the images translate perfectly to prints, since I spend a lot time + energy on editing. I hand-select the printing labs we work with specifically so that they bring the full quality of my work out.
I do! Right on your gallery, there's options to choose from so many print sizes, as well as framed/matted prints, calendars, Thank You cards, canvases, albums, and more.
For weddings + portraits, I don't charge a travel fee for locations that are an hour or less from where I'm based out of (Philadelphia, PA). I charge a $200 travel fee for anywhere in-between 2-3 hours; for any further, I require my stay for 1-2 nights is covered at a local airb&b or hotel.
For destination weddings, I require flight, food, and stay covered for the length I'm booked on the trip.
Hell yeah. Just as important as photographs, but in a different way. While you can feel everything from a photograph, a film allows you to watch + experience moments even more in depth. Imagine how you feel when you watch your favorite movie, seeing the movement and emotions play out. Many couples that have booked me for a reel talked about how they were iffy about videography, but literally could not imagine how they would re-live their day without their film.
Something I pride myself on is finding the coolest, most unique 'secret garden' locations of NEPA. I'm a well traveled gal, and nothing is more fun for me than to go out and scout the scenic location(s) for your session that align with your vision + personality.
This is where the dreamer/creative in me gets really sparked. Along with your portrait session is a special questionnaire designed to get the wheels going for inspiration; once you submit the questions back to me, I help to create ideas visually for the session that reflect who you are + your deeper purpose behind the session. I use these responses and what I've learned about you to creatively plan + direct natural scenes and poses when I'm taking your portrait.
I try to plan my weddings + shoots with flexibility in between days; if it rains or something, we can always reschedule a shoot, or, my favorite: say f*ck it and dance in the rain.
Yup! I know weddings can be wicked overwhelming, so after your deposit is made, I offer bi-monthly payments or up to 5 increments payments total.
Naw, my prices are firm, man.
Both! I shoot on digital, and sprinkle film in throughout the session or wedding day (at no additional cost).
For portrait sessions, you can expect to get back 35-40 digital images back.
For weddings, you can expect 500-800 digital images depending on the length of coverage/package type.
You don't need to know how to! I will direct + guide you into movements or positions that feel natural, and express your vision and personality. I'm not into replicating any of that weird, trendy stuff in your images or film.
