Frequently Asked Questions
How do you describe your style?
My style could be best described as raw emotion – fun and heartfelt. My main goal is to capture the true emotions and actions evolving on your wedding day or during one of your photo sessions. I love candid moments, so be prepared to see those too. Telling your story through my images is what I strive to do.
What is your availability?
Most of my weekends are booked with weddings, so 80% of my portrait sessions, including engagements are scheduled on weekdays. We can schedule these sessions before sunset or early morning. In case weekdays aren’t an option for you, just let me know and we can try to figure something out together!
What about location?
I am available for on location shoots within the Atlanta metropolitan area. These areas include Acworth, Alpharetta, Canton, Cartersville, Dallas, Holly Springs, Kennesaw, Marietta, Roswell and Smyrna.
If there is a location that is special for you, we can shoot there. It would make the experience more personal. If not, we can always discuss different options.
A $50 travel fee will be applied in addition to the package pricing if the location is 30 miles outside of Acworth, GA. If you have concerns regarding the distance of the location let's discuss.
I am not used to being in front of the camera. What do I do?
Nobody is! All I ask of you is to relax and be yourselves! Enjoy the time together. I will direct you and give you tips throughout the session, and if I’m not that means you’re doing exactly what I need you to do! Sometimes the in between moments speak louder than the big moments. It is all about capturing the connection in between your loved ones. So, relax and I promise it will be a great time!
What do I wear?
Feeling comfortable is important, so you should always wear something that is you! With that being said it is a special occasion, so why not go a little extra with one of your outfits?! I will send you a guide to help you maneuver these avenues.
What if we opt out of the engagement session (included with select wedding packages) does this change the price?
Unfortunately this does not affect the price. I strongly encourage an engagement session prior to the wedding. This helps me get to know you as a couple and allows you as a couple to get comfortable with the camera.
Is there a retainer fee?
I ask for 50% deposit on all sessions, however, this excludes weddings. This deposit is due prior to the scheduled session.
For weddings once you sign the contract, I require a 30% retainer fee. That will secure your date. The remaining is due two weeks before your wedding date.
Are my photos edited?
All of the images are individually edited with my artistic point of view. I spend more time in editing than actually shooting. That is why I do not deliver raw images or unedited images; the editing is part of my signature.
How do I receive my photos?
You will receive a link to an online gallery, password protected. You are free to share the link with anyone you like. You have unlimited downloads! If you would like to purchase prints from my website, you can, if not you can just download the high-resolution size and get it printed elsewhere with a print release provided from me.
