You have questions, I have answers...
Q: Where are you located and do you travel?
A: I’m located in Louisville, Kentucky, and I’m happy to travel within the US. Contact me for billing, it's surprisingly affordable to have me travel to you!
Q: What is your photographic style?
A: My style is largely journalistic, with bits of fine art flair throughout. I love the light and airy feel with some added warmth. I can be a bit sneaky to get those candid shots, but I still believe there’s a time and place for lovely posed images of the two of you together.
Q: How do we book you to photograph our wedding or for a regular session?
A: Your date is reserved when I have a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer. Dates are booked first come first serve.
Q: Do you have back up gear and insurance?
A: Absolutely! I have a backup camera, lenses and flashes so that I am prepared for anything. I also have liability insurance, which many venues require from vendors.
Q: Do we have to do the engagement session?
A: While the complementary engagement session isn’t mandatory, I highly recommend it. Not only will you get beautiful images that you could use for other wedding stationery/decor, but you will also have the chance to get to know me and get comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day. This session cannot be transferred over to other services/products or passed on for credit.
Q: Is everyone welcome to your services?
A: Of course! I provide services to all people regardless of their ethnicity, nationality, gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation. I do not discriminate against any groups and welcome all who are interested in my services.
Q: Do you work with a second shooter on wedding days?
A: Yes. My partner, Derek, comes along with me. He has a great eye, and matches my style to ensure all of your photos have a cohesive look. He’ll handle coverage of the groomsmen getting ready, and take alternate shots alongside me throughout the remainder of the day.
Q: Do I have to order prints through you?
A: I highly recommend ordering prints through my professional vendors, but it is not required. The difference in quality is HUGE when it comes to ordering through a local printer versus a professional lab, so I encourage clients to let me help with prints!
Q: Your prices aren't quite in my budget, can we work something out?
A: Please contact me so we can discuss your situation. I will do my very best to put together a custom package that fits your needs!
Q: What about rescheduling, cancellations, and other concerns related to covid-19?
A: If you have to reschedule your wedding or session for reasons related to covid-19, either by your own choice or because of government orders, I will not charge a rescheduling fee. I will work with you to find a new date. If we are unable to find a new date that works for both our schedules, I will help you find a different photographer that is available. If I get sick, I will let you know as soon as possible, and will help you find a different photographer. Should you decide to cancel all together for reasons related to covid-19, the 50% retainer fee you paid upon booking remains non-refundable. However, if you've already paid your balance in full, a refund amount will be determined based on the time I've spent preparing for the event. This includes, but is not limited to, pre-wedding/session communications, development of timelines, and preparation of gear for the event.
Myself and my partner, Derek, are taking lots of precautions to keep ourselves safe and healthy. We avoid going out in public whenever possible, and wear masks when we do have to venture out. We keep everything clean and sanitized. We wash our hands often, and use hand sanitizer. We also get tested regularly. It is of utmost importance to us to ensure the safety of ourselves and our clients.
On your wedding/session day, we will be wearing masks and washing/sanitizing our hands. If someone needs a small adjustment during group photos, I may ask whoever is nearest to them to help, instead of getting in close myself. There will be small tweaks made to my normal workflow to help us adhere to the social distancing guidelines. I will do my very best to ensure these precautions don't interfere with the vision you have for your photos.
