Questions regarding wedding/engagement shoots?
Can you recommend a location for our engagement shoot?
Yes! I have several locations that I regularly shoot at in MD, DC, and VA. I have several that are indoors and even more that are outdoors and they are absolutely beautiful year round.
How long does it take to get our proofs and final edits?
For engagement photos it usually takes about a week to get your proofs. For wedding shoots I usually ask for thirty days. I typically will take over a thousand photos on a wedding shoot and I like to take my time to carefully go through them all and adjust as needed before I send them to you. Once you select the proofs you would like me to edit it usually takes me thirty days to get everything edited, your materials ordered and back from the lab, and then mailed out to you. If you have a certain deadline you need me to meet I can certainly accomodate you. For jobs needing completion in less than two weeks a $35 rush fee applies.
Our wedding is pretty small and we don't need much. Can a package be customized for us?
Absolutely! I would be more than happy to work with you on finding you the package that is just right for you.
What is your deposit policy?
I typically require 50% down and then the balance is due no later than six weeks prior to the date of the wedding. I will work with you though if you need other arrangements. Engagement packages require payment in full at the time of booking.
The day of our engagement shoot is here. What if it rains or we are running late?
If it rains we can absolutely reschedule. Even if you had to wait a while to get the initial shoot appointment, I can usually reschedule you on a day not too far from your original appointment date if needed.
As for tardiness....I understand that things happen. I am very patient. Sometimes I run a couple of minutes late. In those rare instances I will notify you before your appointment time. If you are running late please let me know immediately. If you are stuck in traffic, let me know this when you're on the way, not when I am messaging you to let you know that I have arrived. If we are scheduled for a 3pm shoot and you are still getting your makeup done at 2:30pm and aren't on the road yet, please let me know! I almost always have other shoots scheduled that same day. Sometimes I can rearrange things but if you show up 40 minutes late for your hour long photo shoot and didn't give me any notice your appointment will be truncated.
