HEY! So stoked you've found yourself on my FAQ page. Hopefully this might answer a lot of questions you two may have, and if not I'm definitely down to answer anything else! Enjoy! Xx


Do you deliver sneak peak photos?

OH HECK YES. #INSTANTGRATIFICATION. You get married and the first thing you want to do that week is shout it from the rooftops! I give all of my couples 'sneak peak' previews of about 20-30 edited photographs the very next day after the wedding. That way they can post them on Instagram, Facebook, and all over social media for the world to see. 



For weddings, I deliver anywhere from 400-1200 images. Every single wedding is different, some are super busy nonstop and I'm there shooting for 8-10 hours, and some are very intimate and relaxed and I'm only there for 6 hours. So it truly just depends on whats going on during that wedding, how long I'm there, and lots of other factors! For engagement sessions, portrait sessions, and couples sessions, I'll deliver 100-250 images! 


if you’ve never shot at our venue before, will that affect anything?

No! Definitely not. If I've never shot at your venue, it really doesn't make any difference compared to if I have. I scout the venue a bit earlier in the day/ look it up on google if I’m located far away, but mainly it all comes down skill and knowledge. Luckily, my photography comes second nature to me, I can literally adjust my settings in a matter of seconds. So even if I haven't shot at your venue, I'll still be able to read the light, find the best spots, and adapt to the setting I am in. I actually feel SO inspired at all new venues, and it's a super fresh/rad look on each new one. 


Do you deliver every single image that you take?

Nope! Throughout the day you'll hear me clicking like crazy, taking lots of photos! Within those photos, there are always ones I don't deliver. But don't worry, they're never ones you would want anyways! Usually they consist of people blinking, talking, etc.


we want an engagement session, do your packages include them?

Some of my packages do, and some don't! I love engagement sessions because it allows us to get to know each other before the wedding more, but it also allows you two to photograph such an exciting time, being engaged! Engagement sessions can be fun, super relaxed, playful and adventurous. Sometimes engagement sessions can't happen for my couples who live elsewhere, but I've done sessions day before the wedding and sometimes even day after while they are in town. I also travel lots, so sometimes it has ended up me being in a place near you, and doing an engagement session there! Totally just depends :) 


do you offer albums or photo prints?

I freaking love albums. Nothing is better than seeing my work come to life on paper. Albums and prints are not included in my packages, but rather A La Carte. Some couples even decide after their wedding to purchase an album/prints! You pick the images, I design the album, and send it over to you for a final proof before we order it! Once we order it, it usually takes 4-8 weeks (usually way sooner) to get the final album delivered on your doorstep.  

do you deliver raw files?

Nope! You're booking me as your wedding photographer because you trust me. You trust my editing style, artistry, and how I finalize every image. Raw photos are completely untouched, unedited images, and they aren't a final representation of my work. I edit every single image individually so the final result looks beautiful; the exposure, tones, contrast, and more, is just perfect how I love it. 


do you ever book two weddings in one day?

I'm always surprised when people ask me this! I would NEVER do that! That is your day and my sole focus is on you, your wedding, and being there fully. I'll sometimes book two weddings in the same weekend depending on circumstances and if it works out ideally, but never on the same day. That date is yours and yours only.

do you ever use a second shooter?

YES! Mainly only my larger packages include a second photographer. Longer weddings = more to capture and a second shooter is always nice so every moment is captured. For smaller, more intimate weddings that don't include a second photographer, the option to add one is always there. Working with a second is great because there’s always two people in two places, at once. 


we want to book you and reserve our date! What do we do?

Woot woot! Fill out the 'BOOK ME' pricing quote request form on my website, I'll email you all my packages, what I offer, and answer any questions you may have! I'll then send over the contract, you'll fill it out, put down 30% of your package total to reserve the date, and BAM! I'm all yours! The remaining payment is due 30 days before your wedding! Everything I do is all online. It makes life super simple, for both of us. I take paypal, checks, bank transfers, and more! :) 


do you only photograph weddings?

Nope! I actually initially began this whole photography journey by taking family photos. Little ones especially are my specialty! I have my BA in education and child studies as well as photography so I’ve learned quite a bit about little kiddos and engaging with them. Usually that comes down to just letting them run the shoot lol. Oh & did I mention I was also an event and social media photographer when I was in college? I still do it all - family photos, portraiture, birthday parties, product photos, etc. whenever they fit into my schedule so feel free to inquire!


Should I elope?

It’s actually surprising how many brides come to me unsure of having an intimate wedding or just going for it and eloping. Personally, my husband and I chose to elope. We did it on a gorgeous beach on Oahu, where we were living at the time, and it was everything we dreamed of. We’ve been married over a year now, and below is my top 5 reasons that went into my decision to elope along with my take on it all now.


  1. Cost - Not having to plan for feeding guests, a cake, DJ, venue, and all the other little details meant we were able to get married without going over budget. We kept everything simple. It was inexpensive, but in no way did I feel deprived of my wedding day or let down. It was exactly what I dreamt of and pictured having.

  2. Intimacy - We decided on it being just us two, but I know many couples who decided to include their parents and close friends. Regardless, limiting the amount of people involved in your day means it truly is an intimate, special moment for you two. We were focused on each other and in our own little world. I’ve never felt so blissfully in love.

  3. Location - We got married on a beach in Hawaii. It was fully secluded just us, beautiful weather, and a beautiful location. It’s exactly where I pictured myself getting married and was a dream location we couldn’t have afforded to have a big wedding at.

  4. Stress free - Because there’s not as many details or moving parts involved in eloping vs. a wedding, we had a stress free day that we were able to fully enjoy. I remember sleeping in the morning of, having plenty of time to get ready, and just laughing and not worrying about being exactly on time, making sure things were ready, etc.

  5. Higher budget for what you really want - Maybe the location is crucial for you two or maybe the bride really wants a gorgeous (yet pricey) dress, but your current budget doesn’t allow for it. For me, the one thing I absolutely had to have was perfect photos. We ended up finding the perfect girl for the job and were able to get photos that I’m still obsessed with today. So believe me when I say I know how important it is to find the perfect photographer. I get it - I was in the same boat as you when planning my day and totally understand if I’m not the perfect girl for the job (though I sure hope I am!).
