so how does it work
I’ll guide you through the entire process
Here's a quick step-by-step process of how it works, everything from booking the session/wedding to receiving your photos, yay!!
01. FILL OUT CONTACT FORM + I'LL BE IN TOUCH
Head over to the contact form to start the process! Tell me a little bit about yourself and what your vision is so we can get to know each other a little bit and create the best magic for what you're looking for! After you submit a message, I’ll reach out via email within about 48 hours (please check junk folders too if you don't see it!) If you decide you want to book, I'll send over the official booking link with the contract, invoice and a little questionnaire and we'll get to planning your dream session/wedding!
02. WE'LL PICK A LOCATION
I always ask if there's a certain location you have in mind. if you do, great, we'll go there! If not, totally no worries, I would love to send you some different ideas based on what type of background/vibe you're going for!
*keep in mind, some locations more than 1 hour away from me do have additional travel fees that may apply, or for studio location- studio fees apply*
04. THE SESSION/WEDDING DAY
This is THE best part- the day of your session or wedding will be one of the most memorable days of your life (def your wedding!). My biggest advice- ENJOY IT. We'll meet up, have fun, chat, laugh-- all while capturing you (and your boo!). I will be right there with you, your biggest hype girl, helping + serving you and laughing and crying right there with you.
05. YOUR GALLERY
I'll send you some sneaks peeks 1-3 days after your session or wedding day!! The full gallery will be sent via email through an online gallery with a pin code so only you + the people you share your code with will be able to download the photos. I'll also send you my print shop recommendations so you can hang some high quality prints of your favorites up on your walls!!
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm based in Arizona and HECK YES, I love to travel! Sometimes travel fees do apply, depending on where your special moment is taking place. Fill out the "Contact Me" to inquire more about your desired location and a quote!! Many locations I offer discounts for if they're on my bucket list!!
Will there be a second shooter?
I definitely recommend having a second photographer for another perspective for your day, as well as larger weddings or weddings with tighter timelines. A second photographer can be added to any package for an additional cost.
What do I wear?
Wear something you feel confident and comfortable in! I always suggest something that has some movement - like flowy dresses and skirts for the girls look beautiful in photos! Having some texture also adds some dimension to your photos! I have some Pinterest boards for some inspiration on colors and outfit ideas based on the type of shoot, and I would love to help you more- just let me know! I've even sent clients some outfit recommendations based on what they're looking for! (I LOVE shopping- probably too much- and would love to online window shop for you!)
Can we bring our dog?
UM YES FOR SURE! Dogs + pets are part of the family too, so dogs are always welcome.
When is the best time for photos?
Golden hours are my personal favorite for all outdoor sessions which is right around sunrise or a little before sunset. For indoor/studio sessions, I recommend whenever the most light is coming in through the windows (typically its around late morning/early afternoon but does change based on the space/directions windows are facing/how many windows).
When and how will we get our photos?
You will receive an online gallery link with all your edited images within 3 weeks for sessions and 8-12 weeks for weddings (sometimes less depending on the season). You will receive a special pin number only you and the people you share it with can access and download all the high res photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and order prints!
Can we meet before booking?
OF COURSE! It's so important to get to know each other + make sure we're a good fit for each other and I am ALWAYS down to meet! Let's go grab coffee, chat + see what magic we can create together!
