Frequently Asked Questions

The sweet spot for booking events is usually at least 2-3 months out. Typically, ~2-3 days after your session or event, I’ll have a batch of “sneak peek” or preview images available. For most events, the turn around time for all the edited photos is about 2-3 weeks, and these will be shared with you in an online downloadable gallery. If you have a hard deadline for your photos afterwards, just let me know. I usually have a good bit of flexibility!

For elopements, I typically aim to book around 5-6 months out (and I am not usually booking further out than about 8 months at this time). Similar to most corporate or other personal events, you’ll receive a batch of sneak peeks a couple days after, and the full gallery is typically ready in about 3 weeks.

I’ve always said that I try to have a clean, but polished, and timeless look to my editing, and I hope that comes through! I aim to keep things as true to life as possible, while still matching the mood of your event! I typically will include some black and white photos for personal events, but I usually try to keep the color version available for you too! You can also always request black + white edits of your favorites if you’d like.

To do my best getting all the photos of your event, it’s always helpful to have an overall sense of any timelines, event programing, and VIPs. We can work together to confirm details as you have them, and if there are key people to photograph mingling, or in posed group shots, I’ll add all this info to my notes!

Send over any details you have so far to my email on the contact page, and we’ll start coordinating calendars! For larger events, there may be a retainer deposit fee required, but the booking process is typically flexible (and I can accept payments through credit card if you prefer). I can’t wait to work with you!
