Frequently asked questions,
How long does it take to get the images from my session?
For mini and 1hr sessions you can expect to get your online album within 1-2 weeks after the day of your session. For weddings I provide "sneak peak" images 1-2 days following the ceremony, with the full album being ready in 2-4 weeks. Timing can vary depending on how many edited/retouched images are requested.
Do you offer wedding packages?
Yes, however I know each wedding can vary and so can the desired amount of coverage. It is best to get in touch so we can design a package that caters to your specific needs. I can send "example packages" upon request.
How much retouching do you do to portraits?
This can vary depending on the type of session, portrait style and client needs. My preference is to keep things at natural as possible, but some retouching occurs (ie: acne, pimples, scars, cuts, teeth whitening, minor skin retouching). If retouching is a concern let me know.
My session is today and I'm nervous... I don't really like getting my photo taken, how can I prepare?
First off you're not alone. I get in front of the camera every now and then to remind myself just how awkward it can be. Other than telling you I will do my best to make this a great experience here are some prep tips to consider so you feel your best:
Why is photography so expensive? It's just snapping photos.
There is a lot more to it. The easiest part is taking the photographs and even that has its challenges. Keep in mind a photographer may spend an hour with you but 10 hours or more organizing and editing. Another thing to consider is the cost of gear (my Canon 35mm f1.4 mark ii lens costed $2229.99 new), computers, hard drives, tablets, editing programs/software and having an online space for albums. Just to give a little perspective.
Do you offer gift cards?
