Hi there! I'm so glad you're here, and considering me as your photographer! Here, I'll go over some of the most frequently asked questions so you know exactly what to expect out of your experience.
Yes. All my photos are delivered as JPGs- and they are all optimized for posting on social media! You'll receive them in an easy-to-use online gallery which you can access via a unique link. You can even create your own app on your phone for your photos!
One of the cool things I like to do for my clients is give them what I call a "Sneak Peek". This means within one week of your session (or your wedding!) you'll get a blog post with at least 10 images ready to go- and ready to post! Your full gallery will arrive within three weeks from the day of your event.
I try to deliver every photo that could be considered precious to you. The photos I eliminate are ones that you would eliminate yourself, such as people with closed eyes, test shots, duplicates, etc. You can expect about 40 photos for a session and at least 200 for a wedding.
Usually I will edit out acne on a select few of my favorites, but skin touch-ups on every photo is not included. I will not usually edit out moles or birthmarks unless specifically requested since permanent marks are a part of how you look! You can request additional skin touch-ups on any photo for $5 per photo.
It's super easy to order through your gallery, just click the shopping cart icon and chose what product you'd like! If you're wanting to buy an album, just fill out the order form in my shop.
I never expire your gallery, but I always recommend downloading and backing up your digital photos within a year of receiving them!
For a wedding, 50% of your total payment is due to reserve your date, and the other 50% is due two weeks before your wedding or event. This gives you time in between to budget accordingly, and leaves the two weeks before your event free from any stress.
If you are concerned about fitting your budget, have a chat with me and we may be able to set up a payment plan to fit your needs.
Never fear. No matter what your session is, I have a style guide that I send out to each of my clients at the time of booking. It has a lot of suggestions for certain styles that look great on camera for both guys and girls. It covers everything from hair and makeup to shoes. But the most important thing is to wear is something that you feel comfortable and confident in!
I have compiled all the info you need for all of my favorite places in the Charlotte area on my location guide. All my clients get access to this guide at the time of booking. Also, don't be afraid to think outside the box! If you know of a gorgeous place that might work let me know and we can definitely check it out.
I'll work with your best angles to get flattering pictures that you love yourself in. There won't be any weird moments like "where do I put my hands". I'll coach you on exactly what to do, and you can act in a way that feels the most natural to you. If something looks weird, I promise I'll step in and fix it- so you can fully enjoy yourself in the moment!
