How far in advance should we book if we are really interested?

I’ve booked dates as far in advance as nearly 2 years and as last minute as 1-3 months prior. Holiday weekends (Labor and Memorial Days) tend to book first — and that’s including Fridays and Sundays. For any Saturday during peak wedding season (May- October and often during the winter holidays) I recommend securing your date 9-12 months in advance.

 

And what is required to secure our wedding date with you?

An initial non-refundable payment of $1500 towards the collection you choose, along with a written and signed agreement officially reserving exclusivity for the date(s) you are requesting.

 

Do you use an assistant?

Yes. Always. By having someone on-hand to help with the many little details, it just makes for a much smoother day and frees me to focus on what you hired me to do — take fabulous photos!

 

How long after our event can we expect to see our proofs?

All initial “proofs” are delivered digitally in the form of a personal online gallery approximately 4-6 weeks from the date of your event. There is a lot of work and care that takes place behind the scenes from the time I click the shutter (a few thousand times!) until your beautifully edited, organized and enhanced collection of images is ready to view. Believe me, I am just as excited for you to see your photos as you are — if not more! Thank you in advance for your patience.

 

And if we ordered an album?

Once you’ve had a chance to review your proofs and create selections of your favorite images, I will create a custom layout that best tells the story of your day. You will then receive a soft copy (digital layout) to review. Once you and you’ve had a chance to review it, you may request revisions before the layout is finalized. The final revision and retouching stage, printing, binding, production and delivery takes approximately 8-12 weeks.

 

Will we receive images with printing rights of our wedding day? And will those images be watermarked?

All wedding collections come standard with a customized USB drive of all your edited and retouched high-resolution wedding day images with a printing release. Complete digital collections are available for engagement sessions as well, depending your chosen package at booking.
