Frequently Asked Questions

Here 's some stuff you might want to know before working with together. 

What's your turnaround time?

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.

Are HQ photos included in gallery?

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.

Do you offer prints + albums?

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.

Do you charge for travel?

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.

Are Highlight Videos really that important to have of my wedding day/elopement?

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.

What if I don't know where I want to do my portrait session?

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.

What if I don't even know how to start envisioning my session?

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.

What happens if the weather is crap?

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.

do you offer payment plans?

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.

do you offer discounts?

Naw, my prices are firm, man.

Do you shoot on film or digital?

Both! I shoot on digital, and sprinkle film in throughout the session or wedding day (at no additional cost).  

Still have some questions? don't hesitate to reach out and ask!

How many photos do I get back?

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.  

What if I feel awkward and don't know how to pose?

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.
