"You get MUCH more than just photographs. You get a coach, a counselor, a comedian and for us, a friend. She was the best investment we made for our wedding!"

questions to ask venues YOU ARE CONSIDERING:

take note of these

10. Are you allowed to rearrange anything?

11. What is the sales tax you are charging?

12. Are there noise restrictions? Do we have to end at a certain time due to town rules?

13. What is the cancellation policy?

14. Restrooms—what are your thoughts on non-binary individuals using the restroom they identify with?

15. Is your staff involved in setting up and breaking down?

16. Who is the point person as we plan our wedding? Is this the same person on our actual wedding day?

17. Do you have a liquor license? Can we bring our own alcohol?

18. Do you have liability insurance? (Seriously, you should be asking this for ALL vendors.)

1. What is included and what is not?

2. Any restrictions for vendors?

3. What is the capacity?

4. Are you restricted to only using their recommended vendors?

5. Any lodging nearby (if they don't have any/enough)? If so, do they have special discounts for their couples/guests?

6. Can you get ready there? Is there a bridal suite? How much space is there?

7. What does parking look like for our guests?

8. What extra fees are there?

9. Do you get entire venue/facility for entire weekend (Friday-Sunday)? If so, when is check-in and check-out?

frequently asked questions

do you travel?

Sure do! I have traveled for it all: weddings, elopements, and even engagement sessions! However, I limit my travel schedule. I do make it affordable as possible. 

Do you have insurance?

Heck yeah! If your venue needs proof of it, just let me know and I would be happy to send it right over to them. 

i am nervous getting my pictures taken!

Totally normal. Hell I do too! I never jump into a session taking pictures. We warm up and get to know each other more. 

do you have a second photographer?

Absolutely! I have a talented, reliable, fun second photographer named Matt. He goes above and beyond!

How long of a wait is it to get photos back?

I believe you are investing in your future. I do not rush these. You deserve someone who cherishes these as much as you will.  Weddings/Elopements are 8-10 weeks. Engagement Sessions are 2-3 weeks. Sneak Peaks take up to 48 hours.

why should i hire you?

Because I genuinely care about YOU. I won't even consider a booking unless we meet. I want to make sure my terrible Lip Syncing skills are ok with you.

Can we be friends. you seem so cool?

Ok so I slid this in here on my own. If you are quirky, I just need to be friends with you regardless. 

Why do you only take 10 weddings?

Because I care!  I want to be there for my couples if they need more guidance. Taking 25+ weddings, I wouldn't be able to do that. Resulting in those awkward photos.
