When taking your photos, my camera has two different card slots. This means that each time I take a photo it records to two different cards. I also have two cameras and several lenses that I bring with me to each shoot and wedding. After your session, those cards will then be copied over to two different hard drives. Your hard drives are then stored in a fireproof container. My computer also has a cloud system that instantly backs up photos. I promise your photos are safe with me!
For any session, photos will be delivered within 4 weeks and for any wedding day or elopement, photos are delivered within 5 weeks. Oftentimes you will get your photos back much sooner, but can depend on the season!
The best answer that I can give you is to expect around 50-75 photos for every hour I shoot. So many things can affect how many photos you get, but I always deliver you the highest quality photos. I promise to keep your memories safe and give you more than enough images to remember this important time in your life.
Unlike many other photographers I only take on less than 15 weddings and elopements per year. This helps me give full focus and attention on you and every client that I work with. I intentionally focus on quality rather than quantity when it comes to taking on clients.
I am based in the heart of the Midwest and in Nebraska. I still take on weddings and sessions in my home state and have such a soft spot for the Midwest, but majority of my work is destination. I truly enjoy traveling for my clients and do it quite frequently!
No, I do not give any raw or unedited images to you. I firmly believe that editing is just as important as taking the photos. I promise to deliver you plenty of photos from your session or wedding and not leave anything important out!
I believe that it is really important to capture how you are authentically in the moment of time and I don’t alter how you look. Some things that I do touchup are acne, or skin blemishes that you may have. I want you to feel like the best version of your true self in the photos!
I require a 50% retainer to save your date on my calendar. And then the other 50% is due one month prior to your wedding/elopement or 2 weeks prior to your session. I’m happy to accommodate and make any payment plan options for you!
After booking I have several different resources that I’ll send over to help pick out the perfect outfits. These should be something that reflects you as your individual selves, but still photographs well. You will also have access to text me or email any outfit options that you are debating between. I love to help pick you out the perfect outfits!
I always lean on the side of embracing whatever the weather gives us, because it truly can make for some epic photos. But, if it becomes a safety hazard, then yes we will reschedule a time that works the best for both of us!
I would have to be almost on my deathbed to not make it to your wedding day. But things can happen that are out of anyone's control. If I am unable to make it, I will have a highly qualified replacement photographer take all of the photos and then I will still edit the photos, so you would still have my style, as the final gallery.
Absolutely. Whether that is helping pick out the perfect engagement photo outfits or plan your perfect location to say your elopement vows, I 100 percent love to help and be involved in the process.
