By filling out the form, this will give me a better idea of what you are looking for, what you imagine for your session/wedding, and if we would make a good fit :)!
After I have sent you my guide and information, we can set up a consulation to meet over the phone or in person for some coffee or a cocktail..whichever ;), to talk all the fun deets of what to expect, and get to know eachother more on a personal level!
Once we have decided on a date, and that we can't part ways, I will send over the contract, invoice, and payment for half the deposit to secure our session or your wedding day!
This means we made things official, and can do all the fun stuff now! YAY. I like to send a guide for what to wear, and will ask some questions of how to make the session feel more personal, and true to you. Whether that's getting more creative, or just keeping it simple.
Where are you based?
I am now residing in Pensacola, Florida! I still do travel to Tampa from time to time though. Or I am totally open to travel and some adventures! :)
What is your turnaround time?
This depends! For portrait sessions, 2-3 weeks. For weddings, 10-12 weeks, with some sneak peaks of course. During holidays, this is subject to change because of how busy it gets! But I am always in contact with you to let you know if deadlines should change.
We don’t feel very confident in front of the camera, is that ok?
TRUST ME, all of my clients say this to me. You are not alone. I am also not very confident in front of a camera. Awkward and being real to you is the best thing you can be. I aim to direct you to bring out your personality, naturally. I also am a huge fan of music, and encourage PLAYLISTSSSS. This always helps to loosen up and have the greatest jam session. My clients come out saying how much more fun they had than they thought they would, and we end up losing track of time.
Do you know how to shoot in low lighting situations?
Yes! I have external flashes I bring with me on your wedding day or to your event to help get the best lighting possible for when needed. I typically will go as long as I can to get all the natural light and pop on a flash during your reception to get the fun, dancing photos!
Do you have a degree?
I know many people don't ask this but I feel it's important to know you can trust my skills, and my background! I attended the Art Institute of Tampa where I received my BFA in Digital Photography in 2018. In school, I took advanced classes in studio, lighting, film photography, post production, and even video.
How many final images will I receive?
For weddings, this will depend on coverage and so many other variables. I do not have a cut off number, all of the perfect moments will be delivered to you. My range for weddings would be 400-1,000.
For portrait sessions, it will vary on if you select a mini session versus a full session.
Do you deliver RAW images?
I do not. You are investing in my artistic style of editing and vision. I truly believe editing is the biggest part of the magic that happens when it comes to photographs. Plus, no one likes things when they aren't finished ;). If you feel I missed a photo, please reach out. I'd be happy to include it if I missed something.
Can you photograph with film?
YESSS. This has become such a huge thing again and I'm loving it. I studied film photography in 2010 and would spend HOURS in a dark room developing my own film and seeing it come to life. If this interests you, please let me know and we can add it into your session.
