Let's Get Started On Your Journey!

I live for the emails, calls, and referrals I receive for weddings, elopements, and just about everything else. Let me show you why we'd be a perfect fit for your day!

How do we book?

I require a signed contract, as well as a non-refundable retainer of $1500, both due at the time of booking in order to hold your wedding date. I'll also send you a comprehensive questionnaire that covers your timeline, shot list, vendor list, and so much more. Before this, we'll have a phone call, video chat, or coffee date to talk about your wants and needs!

How far in advance do we need to book?

I recommend booking 12-18+ months in advance from the busy season, as prime and last-minute dates fill up quickly.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes! I require a non-refundable retainer to hold your date and will then spread payments across four installments, depending on your needs.

How many photos can I expect?

While I'd love to send you EVERYTHING, it's important to sift through the imperfect images and not give you a million photos to review. You can expect about 100 photos per hour, between 600-1000 photos in your final gallery.

Do you offer engagement sessions?

Yes! The Luxe and Classic packages include a complimentary engagement session. If you aren't booking your wedding with me, you can still book an engagement session!

If we don't want an engagement session, can our package be discounted?

Unfortunately, no. Your engagement session not only provides you with a chance to get comfortable in front of the camera and build rapport with me but it also allows me to capture beautiful moments that complement your wedding day story! Therefore, I don't typically offer discounts when the engagement session is declined, as my pricing is structured to provide the best value for our clients.

When can we expect our sneak peeks and full gallery?

Your sneak peeks are my top priority following your big day. You can expect to receive 15-30 sneak peeks within 48 hours. Your full gallery can typically be expected within 4-6 weeks. If your wedding is in the middle of my busy season, the expected turnaround time is 6-8 weeks.

Will there be a second shooter?

If your package includes one, YES! Second shooters are great for capturing groom prep and comprehensive ceremony coverage, as well as other little moments.

Can you help us plan?

Of course! When it comes to creating your timeline and shot list, I am here to help! Unsure of your color palette, which vendor(s) to use, where your engagement session should be, or if you should do a First Look? We can tackle these questions together.

Can I extend the hours on the day of?

Yep! My overtime rate starts at $650 per hour.

Can you change your editing style for us?

My signature style is very light and airy while retaining true colors as much as possible (no oompa loompa skin tones here.) If you seek another editing style, I may not be the photographer for you!

Do you charge a travel fee?

Travel fees apply to events requiring 120+ miles and/or 2+ hours of travel outside of my primary business location of Hewitt, New Jersey. This fee includes travel and lodging expenses!
