What is an online gallery?
I use Pixieset for my online galleries from which I'll provide you a password protected gallery that allows you to download high resolution images, share to social media and order high-quality prints if you so choose.
can i print my images wherever i like?
Absolutely! I never want to force you into buying prints through me. Go ahead and take your images wherever works for you. I'll give you a full print release to do so. The only time I recommend going through the gallery to order is if you're blowing up a print to a large size or want colors that are exactly true to what you see in the gallery.
How many hours do I need?
I always recommend at least 8 hours of coverage because not only does that give you tons of time to get the images and locations you want, but it also adds in some padding time in case the timeline runs a little late throughout the day (which is totally normal).
Do you travel for weddings?
Of course! I'm quite the travel bug and am always up for a new adventure. If you have a certain destination in mind or live outside of Ohio, message me for travel details and pricing.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR EDITED WEDDING PHOTOS?
My turn around time for your final images is 2 weeks and at that time you will receive an email notification that your gallery is ready as well as a personal message from me letting you know you can dive right in!
Do you offer payment plans?
I absolutely offer payment plans. I know the wedding planning process is stressful and you have a lot of vendors to accommodate, so I request a 50% retainer to officially book your date and the remainder of the balance is due one month prior to your wedding date. I use PayPal invoicing so you can make payments anytime along the way that work for you.
How many final images will we receive?
Every wedding, location and day is different, but typically my average for an 8 hour wedding is at least 800 images. I also operate by the motto "if they're good, you'll get em", so I don't put a cap on how many final images I deliver to you because I want you to get the most out of my services for the day.
DO YOU OFFER REHEARSAL DINNER COVERAGE
Rehearsal dinner coverage is definitely available and is also a great way for me to meet everyone before the wedding, introduce myself and learn names and such to make a more personal connection with your family and friends during the big day!
DO YOU RECOMMEND AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
I LOVE engagement sessions! Not only is this a fun way for us to get to know each other and for me to find out your style, but it will give you a little taste of how your wedding day will go and what sort of final images to expect. Plus, you'll get some awesome photos for social media and your Save the Date!
Do you have insurance?
Yes, I'm fully insured and can provide proof of insurance to your venue if they request it. Please let me know at the time of booking if you need me to contact your venue and provide any documentation.
what gear do you use?
I use a Nikon D750 as my main camera body with a D610 as a backup. I also have a 50mm 1.8, 24-70mm 2.8, and 70-200mm 2.8 that I switch between throughout the day. My style is to celebrate the natural light on your day, so I don't use flash often. I do have both an on-camera and off-camera flash system that I break out for the reception to make sure we capture every crazy dance move :) Lastly, I'm all about backups and use two 64GB memory cards in each of my cameras. One is for recording and the other is for backing up each image (you can never be too careful when shooting a day as important as your wedding in my opinion).
What do you mean by "edited" images?
I tell all my brides that I edit all of my images as if they were my own (Girl, I got chu'). Each and every photo is fully color corrected, retouched if necessary, and edited to fit the light & airy style you see across my portfolio. I'm all about consistency and delivering you a final product you'll love.
