Have a read through my frequently asked questions and if you still have questions feel free to shoot me an email!
Absolutely! Traveling is one of my biggest passions and most of my weddings and elopements are out of town! Check out my upcoming travel dates and bucket list locations for more information and get a discount on travel fees if I’m in your area or if you’re thinking about tying the knot in one of my bucket list destinations!
For engagements and couples sessions I deliver photos within 4 weeks. For weddings and elopements you’ll receive your photos within 8-10 weeks with some sneak peeks along the way!
For weddings you will receive at least 50 photos per hour of coverage but usually more. For an 8 hour wedding you will get around 500-800 photos. For engagements and couples sessions you will receive at least 80 photos.
I deliver photos on a password-protected online gallery! You can view and download your entire gallery directly from there as well as order prints and share with your friends and family!
RAW photos are completely unedited photos straight from the camera and I do not deliver RAW photos upon request. Editing is a huge part of the process for me and until the photos are edited I do not believe they are done.
Adding on a second shooter is always a great idea in my opinion because you’ll get more photos in your gallery and more variety from multiple perspectives which definitely adds something extra to your gallery! I definitely recommend adding on a second shooter for large weddings but you can totally add on a second shooter for any size wedding! Plus my second shooters are totally awesome and super fun to have around!

Absolutely! I give you the right to print, share and use your photos for personal use. You can also order prints directly from your online gallery and I have an amazing print shop I use when you order from there!
• I'm not sure where I want to get married but I know I want somewhere epic- can you help me find a location?
Absolutely! This is my favorite part about my job! I've spent countless hours scouting epic hidden spots, digging through google maps and researching the best spots for your intimate ceremony! Most of my couples don't even have a specific spot picked out so once you book me I'm happy to send you tons of location ideas and help you find the perfect spot for you guys!
I like to encourage my couples to consider choosing a place that's meaningful to them instead of the most popular tourist attractions. Picking a more secluded spot keeps your day much more intimate and hitting up a hidden gem can be so much more fun than saying your vows in front of a million tourists. Don't worry though, I have countless secret locations to pick from if you're totally lost on finding an intimate location!
• How much do you help with planning?
Helping couples plan and dream up their day is one of my favorite things! While I'm not an official wedding planner, most of my couples that are having an intimate elopement don't even need one because of how much I am able to provide in the planning process! I can help you with vendor recommendations, location ideas, lodging suggestions, ideas for activities to include in your day, travel logistics, and anything else you need help with! I don't book vendors or travel for you, but I can certainly give you some useful guidance! If you're looking for something more intricate such as a ceremony alter and floral arrangements or a custom tablescape set up for dinner I can recommend some elopement planners!
If you're having an adventurous wedding or elopement with a larger group of people, I recommend working with an experienced wedding planner so that they can help you find a location that can accommodate a large group of people, help you apply for all the necessary permits you'll need to hold a wedding and even help you set up a custom dinner for you and your guests. This way everything on your big day will be totally taken care of and you can enjoy spending time with all your guests!
• What if you've never been to the place we want to get married- can you still help us find a location?
Yes! I'm a super experienced traveler and I've been to over 23 countries so I'm totally used to planning trips to new places all over the world. I have a bunch of go-to resources I like to use to location scout in places I haven't been, including a 3D map to tour trails on off-road terrain so we can see exactly what the area looks like without even having been there!
I'm also a part of some amazing networks with wedding vendors all over the world so I can totally help you find all the local vendors you need such as hair & makeup, florals, officiants, private chef, etc.
• What is included in your packages?
All of my couples that book me receive a detailed wedding or elopement planning guide with tips, tricks, and logistics for planning their day, a custom timeline, vendor recommendations, location ideas, a beautiful gallery of high-resolution digital images with printing rights, a custom online gallery where you can download, share and print your photos, and best of all- a new adventure buddy to explore with now and forever!
• WHAT IS YOUR TURN AROUND TIME?
For engagements and couples sessions I deliver photos within 4 weeks. For weddings and elopements, you'll receive your photos within 8-10 weeks with some sneak peeks along the way!
These will be the only memories you have to look back on your day for the rest of your lives, so I like to take my time and make sure I deliver a gallery you'll love for years to come! That being said, I always try to underpromise and overdeliver to get your photos to you as soon as they've been perfected and topped with a cherry!
• HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Go ahead and fill out my contact form and I'll get back to you with more detailed information on my packages and pricing! Once we pick a package or create a custom package that fits everything you're dreaming of, I'll send you a proposal where you can make your retainer payment and sign your contract! I require a 50% retainer and signed contract to lock in your date so once I have these things then I'm all yours!
From there, we'll spend the next few weeks/months planning your day, picking the best location, vendors and activities to make your dream day come to life!
• HOW MANY PHOTOS DO YOU USUALLY DELIVER?
Since the number of photos can vary depending on locations, activities involved, day-of timeline, etc., I don't give an exact number but I typically deliver 30-50 photos per hour booked. I normally shoot thousands of photos and then go through and pick the very best ones to edit and deliver to you. Don't worry, I'm very generous when I go through and pick and I promise not to leave any of the good ones out!
• DO YOU DELIVER RAW PHOTOS?
RAW photos are completely unedited photos straight from the camera and I never deliver RAW photos upon request. Editing is a huge part of the process for me and until the photos are edited I do not believe they are done. All the photos you receive will be edited with consistent tones, mood, brightness, etc!
• How do you deliver photos?
I deliver photos on a custom online gallery. From here, you can view and download your entire gallery as well as order prints and share with your friends and family!
• Are we allowed to print our photos?
Absolutely! I give you the right to print, share and use your photos for personal use. You can also order prints directly from your online gallery and I have an amazing print shop I use when you order from there! All of my couples also receive 15% off prints for the first 2 weeks after their gallery is delivered!
