-Where are you located? Do you travel?
I am currently located in Louisville, Kentucky. Looking for Louisville photographers? I often photograph weddings in Louisville. Also, I photograph weddings in Cincinnati, Ohio, and throughout Southern Indiana. I am 100% willing to travel for any type of shoot (not just for weddings)! I love traveling….whether it’s just one state over, across the country, or in a totally different country! If you are within an hour of Louisville, Kentucky, me traveling to you is free! But if you are further away….let’s chat! We will figure it out and come up with a special package just for you.
-I am located more than an hour away, will there be extra costs?
Traveling is fun, but it costs money so….situation depending…there will most likely be some extra costs (gas, flight, hotel, etc). We can figure all that out via email or Skype!
-What are your wedding packages?
I have a base price of $1,800 that I start at. But each couple is unique and each wedding is unique, so the budget for each couple’s wedding is unique. So fill out the Contact form and we will can begin chatting about your special day!
-Is there an engagement session included with your wedding packages?
An engagement session is included with my largest wedding photography package. My other wedding photography packages have discounts on engagement sessions though! Fill out the Contact form and I can tell ya all about it!
-Do you only photograph weddings?
Nope!! I am not just a wedding photographer! I am also a senior, family, portrait, and product photographer! Check out my portfolio pages to see a sample of my work in each of those categories!
How does payment work?
For weddings, I require a 20% non-refundable reservation fee at the time of booking. The rest is due 2 weeks before your wedding.
For any other session, I require a 20% non-refundable reservation fee at the time of booking. The rest is due 1 week before your session.
What happens if I have to cancel or reschedule a photo session?
I always try my hardest to be flexible when it comes to rescheduling photo sessions. So if something comes up, I will try my best to accommodate you! But if for some sad reason a reschedule doesn’t work out and you have to cancel, the 20% reservation fee is non-refundable.
-How many photos do you typically deliver?
For any mini session, I deliver a minimum of 12 edited images.
For any full session (engagement, senior, family, etc) I deliver a minimum of 40 edited images.
For a wedding, it depends on how many hours I am booked for! Typically for an 8 hour wedding day, I deliver 400-500 edited photos.
-Do you edit the photos? Will I receive any black and white edits?
Yes! I will go through all of the photos from the session, pick out the best ones, edit them, and then send them to you. And yes, I usually include several black and white edits (but only when it fits the motive and looks best). When you book me as your photographer, you are trusting me to use my judgment in regards to what photos from the session look the best! Only the best for you darling.
-Will you Photoshop me?
Most likely, not. I am a lifestyle photographer…. So I prefer to capture the moment and photograph the true you! But if you have a huge zit on your face or your arms look flabby in a couple shots….I can easily fix that.
-Would you ever deliver the RAW unedited photos?
Most likely, no. I can’t even think of a situation where I have ever done so. My photography is my art, and editing is a huge part of that. It’s part of what makes my photos stand out from other photographer’s photos….and their photos from the next photographer’s photos….and so on and so forth. Yes, my photos are good straight out of camera. But they are GREAT once I have edited them and made them look as wonderful a possible for you.
-How long will it take for me to get my edited photos?
For weddings, I will deliver your photos within 4-6 weeks.
For any other session, I will deliver your photos within 2-3 weeks.
-What happens if you can’t photograph our wedding?
I hate even typing out that question! It makes me sad! For me not to be able to photograph your wedding, I would have to be in bed deathly sick, in the hospital, or because of some sort of family emergency. But don’t freak out! I have other wonderful and talented photographer friends that would be more than capable of jumping in and photographing your wedding in my place! I would pass on all of the details and info about your special day and they would fit right in! After the wedding, they would give me the RAW photos, and I would edit them. No biggie!
-What happens if the weather is bad?
Well….here in the Midwest….that is definitely bound to happen! That’s one reason why I try to be flexible with my schedule! The main reason I would advise to reschedule a photo session is if the forecasts looks super rainy. But if it’s just a chance of rain….I say let’s do it! And if we get a little wet….all well! That’s a part of life! And that’s why I am called a lifestyle photographer!
And if it’s raining on your wedding day, don’t fret! I know it’s not preferable….but we can work with the rain, take photos indoors, or use umbrellas and still get amazing photos! Don’t let the rain get you down and don’t stress! I got this.
-Can we meet before booking?
Of course! If you are within an hour from me, I would love to meet for coffee or lunch and answer any questions you have regarding booking a wedding (or any session) with me! If you are further than that, we can always Skype or Facetime!
-Okay, I have read all of this and you seem cool. What do I do now?
Yay! Glad you think so! Haha. Now you can head over to the Contact page, fill out the little form, and press send! I will then respond to you ASAP! Can’t wait to hear from you!
