WEDDING DAY FAQs

Question for me about the big day? Here are the most asked and their answers!

We’re super awkward and not photogenic AT ALL. How will you be sure you’ll get great photos?

This is one of my favorite questions! Not everyone takes selfies all day, and maybe it’s been a while since you had professional photos taken (senior photos in high school?) Instead of focusing on posing you perfectly and saying, “Oh just stand there and talk and do whatever.” I guide you through prompts, actions, and movements to create genuine interaction, so you won’t be just standing there feeling shy and silly! You’ll basically feel like my camera and I are third-wheeling on a casual date with you and your SO.

Do we get every single image you take? How many photos will we get?

Yes, and no. You’ll get every single image edited and delivered to you that I take – minus any unflattering/blinking/mid-bite photos, and any lighting/test/accidental shots. Otherwise, the photos are ALL yours! You’ll receive about 50-100 final edited images per hour of coverage. So for eight hours of coverage, you can expect anywhere from about 600-800 final edited images from your big day!

Do you have insurance?

YES! Every single wedding photographer should have insurance! Why?? On the very rare occasion that my gear were to fail (I do have backup gear for the day of, so don’t worry there, that more so protects me), or if someone were to get injured while we’re taking photos, or if I trip and fall into the wall and put a hole in it at your venue – we’re good to go! Also, most newer venues now require that your photographer have verified proof of insurance. Soooo, even if you don’t go with me, make sure your photographer has insurance!


Can we add on to our package later?

Worried you need an extra hour of coverage because plans changed a bit or decided you want to add on an album? No problem at all! I’m more than willing to amend our contract to make sure you have all the coverage and extras you need!

How long does it take to receive our wedding photos?

First, you’ll be sent a preview gallery of 40-50 images within the week after your event. After that, photos will be delivered to your personal online gallery within 8-10 weeks from your wedding date. If you’ve chosen to add on a custom USB of the images, that will be sent out shortly thereafter – usually within about a week after your gallery has been delivered.

What if you’ve never been to our venue? Does it matter?

No worries! It totally doesn’t matter! My extensive training and bag o’ gear are sure to prepare me for any obstacles that may occur throughout the day. I always do a ton of online research beforehand if I haven’t shot at your location before. Then, the day of, I arrive earlier than my start time, to do a walk of the grounds and gather the best locations for photos. Whether it be tight spaces, not-so-great lighting, weather, photo locations or anything else, I’m prepared to take on the day and make sure it runs smoothly so you can relax & enjoy your time.
