Do you require a contract or down payment to hold my date?
Yes, both. Dates are final once contract is signed and a non- refundable payment ($125 for portraits & $500 for weddings/elopements) to hold your date is received.
What if I need to reschedule our portrait session?
I understand that life happens, and that a date that works at the time of booking, can be affected due to sickness, personal situations, or just plain awful weather, which would disrupt our planned time together. Because of this, I am happy to re-schedule up to 2 times without an additional fee.
How long do portraits, elopements, and weddings usually last?
Portrait sessions // On average, about 1 hour
Elopements // 3-5 hours coverage
Weddings // Up to 8 hours of continuous coverage
What's included in my package?
Great question! Once I cull and edit your files, I will upload them to an online viewing gallery. From there, you can either download the photos and have them printed at your choice, or you can order professional prints and products through your gallery at an affordable rate (highly recommended, but totally up to you).
**Weddings include a complimentary engagement session.
Do you travel?
Ummm... are unicorns magical? Yes, yes, and yes! I am based along the central Oregon coast in Lincoln City, but I LOVE adventure! All of my packages include 70 miles round trip travel from the 97367 area code. Additional fees may apply to areas outside that range.
What is your shooting/ editing style?
I would say my shooting style is candid and unplanned. I honestly never show up to a session with a set idea. I go with the intention of getting to know you and then capturing every moment possible. I want to show you how incredibly beautiful your story is... whether you are just graduating high school, spending time with the ones you love, or getting ready to marry your most favorite human.
When I edit your photos, I love lean towards muted earth tones with vibrant contrast. If that isn't the style you are looking for, that's ok! I have a list of amazing photographers that I am happy to send your way who may better suit the style you are after.
When will I get my pictures?
My goal for portraits sessions is 2-4 weeks, and for weddings/ elopements it can take up to 12 weeks.
What editing programs do you use?
90% of my edits happen in Lightroom, and the rest are finished in Photoshop to take care of what Lightroom can't handle. When it comes to blemishes, I can take care of it... but please know I will not adjust your body to look like someone else's. We are all imperfectly perfect...and I like to keep it that way.
