Do you shoot weddings?
Not at the moment! I may be willing to do small, intimate ceremonies. But I don't have the equipment or a second shooter to give you the best wedding photos. One day!
Will there be a second shooter?
Nope! Just me! When I host events like mini sessions, I'll usually have an assistant to help me keep things rolling.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
Not always but sometimes! It would really depend on my availability and it would increase the price you've paid. Always ask!
What kind of gear do you use?
Do I have to order prints through you?
Nope! Full rights to your images come with them. I use a lot of different print services myself, each for different things I like. So I want you to use this for what you'd like!
What's your rate?
Pricing starts at $300 as of 09/01/2023. This can increase depending on the type of shoot, the time needed, how many members in the party, travel time, etc. It's always best to just fill out an inquiry, but you can get a good idea from the Pricing page!
Why are your prices so high?
When you book a photography service, it's a luxury. It's artwork, heirlooms, peace of mind, convenience, content for your pages for years to come, connecting the living to the dead, and it may be all you have one day. From the business side, you get to use these photos forever, while I get paid once and have to use that for many things; editing softwares, website subscriptions, email subscription fees, fees for you to use certain forms of payment, taxes, insurance, online gallery fees, equipment, etc. Also, while your session may only be 30-60 minutes, photographers spend hours afterwards editing, organizing, uploading, etc. We truly put our heart and soul into this work to make sure that our 30 minute session lasts you a lifetime. It's worth the investment to have something to cherish for generations. I hope this helps!
Do you have a studio?
I don't! I'm a lifestyle photographer. I do occasionally rent spaces for mini sessions or events but primarily I specialize in more natural settings. With enough time and planning I can sometimes rent an indoor space if you'd like but that may come at an extra cost to you and it does mean my work may look a little different based on the venue and it's lighting. It's always worth asking though!
