WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
Most days I'm in NYC, but i'm often in LA, and spend a lot of the winter months in Mexico (because obviously). I book locally to all three locations, so you don't need to worry about additional travel fees on top of your wedding package.
AND THE REST OF THE WORLD? WHAT DO YOU CHARGE TO TRAVEL?
Planning a destination wedding? COUNT ME IN. I welcome worldwide travel! It's one of the best parts of my job, so I try to keep any travel fees to a minimum. In most cases, I'll just charge for the flight and maybe a couple nights in a hotel. I've photographed in a lot of different places, from Jamaica to Copenhagen, Colorado to Puerto Rico. No matter where you're headed, inquire! I have a feeling it could work out well for the both of us! -wink-
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Of course! If your venue has requested a COI, just let me know and I can get you or them the necessary documentation!
CAN I HAVE MORE INFO ABOUT YOUR PRICING?
The best way to approach this is to send me a message with all relevant details and info about you and your wedding! I have a pricing guideline but I love to work with creative couples on a budget whenever possible. I have special rates for weekday, winter, and intimate elopements, so if you're planning something out of the ordinary, be sure to let me know.
OKAY,cool! WE WANNA HIRE YOU - WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?
A signed contract and a simple $1500 deposit guarantees your date and coverage. Everything is done online which makes it super conveinent! After that, we'll be in touch about timeline, details, or any questions you have, and to schedule your engagement session!
DO WE NEED AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
In my opinion yes, absolutely,100%! Honestly, how many of us can say we love being photographed? I wanna change that! Think of the portrait session as a practice run - the best way for us to get to know each other, how we best work together, and to avoid feeling like the wedding day is like an awkward blind date! Bonus, you'll get more cute photos of you two for your save the dates, guest book, wedding website, time capsule, whatever – and I'll be able to get to know what works best for our particular dynamic on the wedding day.
HOW DO WE KNOW IF WE NEED A 2ND PHOTOGRAPHER?
Let's discuss it! There are many factors that determine if a 2nd is a necessary addition but the main one is guest count - if you are expecting more than 120 people its going to be a good idea to have the extra coverage for all the moments happening simultaneously. Some other reasons a 2nd may be necessary is if you're not planning on a first look, if any part of the timeline overlaps (such as cocktail hour and the window of time to get detail shots) or if the two of you are getting ready in separate locations and you want coverage of both.
WHAT ABOUT PRINTS + ALBUMS?
I am all about this! I think having a tangible photo or book is so important. Along with your high res downloads, your gallery includes a personalized store where you can order prints in the sizes that suit you best, calendars and even thank you cards featuring your photos! Ordering prints through a reputable lab makes a huge difference in quality, so I include a print credit with your package so you can get the prints your photos deserve! I also offer custom designed, hand-made albums with museum quality paper, lay-flat binding, and a variety of cover options - linen, leather, silk and even velvet. I'm happy to show you some examples and collaborate on making your unique heirloom book.
