How long does it take to receive my photos back? 
Sneak peeks will be sent within 48 hours of your wedding or engagement session!
Portrait/engagement sessions, turnaround time is 1 week.
Weddings take a bit longer. My goal is to have your images delivered to you within 4 weeks in off season, 6 weeks in the busier season (Mar, Oct-Dec). I work hard on getting them into your hands as quickly as possible!

How many images will we receive?
The number of images delivered depends on coverage time with the average wedding gallery totaling between 600-1,000 photos and unlimited downloading via your online gallery!

Are prints included in the package?
They aren’t but the gallery provided in your package gives you easy access to ordering prints of all sizes for your high resolution images!

Do we need an engagement session? 
I always say "yes" if we're both in the same area and can make it happen.  It's such a great opportunity to get to know each other and get you awesome photos while we're at it. 

What is included in the complimentary engagement session?
We will shoot for an hour in a location of your choice within 135 miles round trip of 92880. A surcharge may be included for locations outside my range of travel and for additional time.
You can bring 1-2 different outfits to fit into your allotted time!

What is the booking process?
To hold your date, a 50% non-refundable reservation fee will be collected along with an electronic signature. From there, the remaining balance can be broken up in monthly, quarterly payments.

What are the benefits to having a second photographer/do we need one? 
Second photographers are such an integral part to the wedding day.  They help me so much!  They're not just there to get cool, additional shots or different angles (although that definitely is a result of having two photographers on hand).  They are an extension of me and can be where I can't be.  Having a second photographer also ensures back up as they have their own set of equipment, etc.  I highly recommend and include a second photographer in every package I offer.

Why is wedding photography so expensive?
There are a lot of different factors that go into wedding photography pricing.  There's a lot that goes into keeping a business running.  But really, the main expense is time.  Time spent driving to location sites, time spent hiring a second photographer, time spent keeping up with vendors, time spent creating a timeline, time spent the day of the wedding and the bulk of the work — time spent going through the thousands of photos taken and editing every one chosen to deliver.  
And yes, I edit every photograph that I deliver!

Where is my money going?
That's a great question and one that's really been on my heart lately.  I heard recently,  "Every dollar you spend is casting a vote for the type of future you want." Businesses support causes/give their money to a number of different things.  I can tell you that everything made through my photography business is either turned right back around and invested into my business or currently it is being used toward a new project I just launched in January, The Marriage Project. It is a monthly podcast featuring the testimonies of different Christian couples across the country and globe.
