Frequently Asked Questions
WE ARE READY TO BOOK. WHAT DO WE DO?
Get in touch with me ASAP! I will send you a contract and a payment request for the retainer. Once I receive the signed contract and the retainer, the date and time(s) are yours!
DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS?
Yes! All returning customers receive $50 off their next booking.
Additionally, I offer referral discounts as well! If you refer someone to me and they book a session with me, you will receive $50 in print credit from me. If you refer someone for an elopement or a wedding and they book with me, you will receive $100 in print credit from me.
I also offer a green discount. I will take $50 off of your session total if we are all able to take alternative modes of transportation to and from the session. i.e. If I can walk or ride my bike and vice versa!
WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND TIME FOR ME TO RECEIVE PHOTOS?
I will share some sneak peeks within 3 days following your session. Lifestyle Packages take 2-3 weeks for processing; Engagements/Couples and Boudoir take 3-4 weeks, and Weddings/Elopements are closer to 4-6 weeks.
As for prints and albums, I usually say anywhere from 3 – 6 weeks. There are a lot of variables so it is tough to give a better estimate than that. If I think that something might take longer, I will let you know before I make the order.
HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?
I’ll go anywhere! I LOVE to travel! Please email or call me with more details. Cost will be a case by case basis. Travel within 30 miles of Denver is included in every package.
CAN YOU PROVIDE MY VENUE WITH A CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE?
Definitely! I am both licensed and insured.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SHOOT LOCATION RESTRICTIONS?
I am totally down with doing whatever it takes to get the shot — including, but not limited to, standing almost waist deep in the water, laying in dirt, climbing trees, crawling under tables — you get the gist!
HOW DO YOU PREFER PAYMENT?
I usually send invoices through Quickbooks. If you prefer an alternate form of payment, please let me know. I will absolutely accept cash but not checks.
WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE?
I have owned my own successful wedding photography business since 2016 and have over 100 weddings under my belt.
HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?
Around the world — across, up, down — anywhere you want me to go!
WHAT KIND OF GEAR DO YOU USE?
I am not a “gear-head” by any means and I really despise carrying a bunch of shit. It’s grueling enough being on my feet for 10 hours non-stop, I definitely don’t want to be hauling around a ton of gear. I currently use the following gear:
- Canon R6’s for my primary bodies
- Canon Mark IV’s as my backup bodies
- Canon EF 17 – 24mm 1.4L
- Canon RF 28 – 70mm 1.2L
- Canon RF 85mm 1.2L
- Canon EF 135mm 1.2L
- Godox AD200 x 2
- MagMod Flash Diffusers and Light Mods
- A couple of speedlights
- A reflector
KISS (my motto) for gear – Keep it simple, stupid 😉
I HEAR YOU ARE CLUMSY… DO YOU BRING BACKUPS?
Yes… the summer of 2022 I did fall into a lake while photographing a wedding… with my gear… while 100 people were watching me take couples portraits during an epic sunset. While my ego and pride were certainly damaged and I smelled like a mixture of dead fish and cow shit for the rest of the night, the couple’s wedding photos did not stop! I brushed off my back up cameras and lenses and worked the rest of the night.
WHAT FORMAT DO YOU SHOOT IN?
RAW files… all day everyday.
