HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Some things that I pride myself on are: connecting with you as a couple, helping make your day go as smoothly as possible using a timeline, and creating images that you fall in love with. I put my heart and soul into my work…it’s not just a day where I show up and take photos for eight hours. There are hours and hours of planning, preparation, post-production editing and emotional investment into striving to give you and your significant other, a beautiful experience.
WHAT TYPE OF EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE?
I received my Bachelors in Fine Arts at Iowa State University and have been doing photography and graphic design for over ten years. After my daughter was born in 2014, I decided not to return to my employer and I ventured out in starting my own photography business. For the past couple years, I’ve been pursuing continuing education with some of the world’s most sought after names in photography. From online courses to conferences, I’m always pushing myself to be a better photographer than I was the day before.
DO YOU USE FILM OR DIGITAL CAMERAS?
I currently use Canon professional digital SLR cameras and prime lenses. In my post-production process, I edit using professionally developed presets which emulate film. It is the best marriage of both worlds: the benefits of shooting digitally along with the beauty, depth and richness of the film look.
WHY ARE THE DIGITALS NOT INCLUDED IN THE SESSION FEE FOR ENGAGEMENTS/PORTRAITS?
I believe in providing you stellar first-class service. Part of my service is having you come in for your reveal; for you to view your images for the first time. I am a full service studio, and you only purchase what you want – I don’t require any minimum order. That’s how much I believe in what I create: my job is to make you want ALL of the images. When you purchase your images from the session, you’ll receive both the high-resolution printable files and the corresponding 8 x 10 professional prints.
The session fee covers my hair stylist and make-up artist, potential assistant for the session, and my time for shooting and editing your images. I also offer a package deal for the entire collection of images from your session. The entire collection of images will be 25 total (one or two people for the session).
I do have alternative pricing included in my pricing packet for portrait sessions, please send me an email to receive the packet. Digital files are included for actual engagement/wedding images in the collections only.
WE WANT TO BOOK WITH YOU, WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO?
For engagment sessions or portraits, all I have you do is sign a model release and pay a date retainer to reserve your session, (retainer is subtracted from session total). The balance of the session fee is due the day of the session.
For weddings, a retainer fee of 25% of your collection is paid the day you reserve your wedding date. That fee is subtracted from the balance of the collection, which is due no later than 4 weeks before your wedding date.
WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I have professional Canon camera bodies, lenses, and on camera and off camera speedlites that I use to shoot with. I always have backups of everything, just in case something goes wrong during the event.
