What types of sessions do you offer?
A.Lifestyle, Seniors, Personal Branding, Couples, Engagement, Maternity, Fresh 48, Newborn, Milestones, Family & Extended Family.
As well as Elopement and Wedding photography services.
Please contact me for wedding videography inquiries.
Sessions aside from Engagement and Wedding photography, can be grouped together and discounted if booked in advance.
For example, Maternity, Fresh 48, Newborn and Milestones can be book into a large package and deeply discounted.
What do we wear?
A.I suggest color coordinating, but more importantly, I suggest being comfortable. I promise, if you're not in love with your outfit, it shows on my end of the lens. Please make sure everyone has on something that makes them feel beautiful and like themselves. Good photos can be ruined when someone can't stop itching themselves under their new sweater or if you're too cold to smile.
Email me for a style guide to use when planning your session.
Do you have photo props?
A.I don't currently own any traditional props but I'm not against investing in them. Depending on the style of photos you're wanting, reach out and we could collaborate to get it together.
Minis are always popular and the right props are something I'm constantly in search for.
There are also a number of vendors in the area who serve as "prop properties." These events must be booked in advance with the vendor but are always styled.
Do you travel for shoots?
A.Travel for shoots includes up to a 30 mile radius of Acworth, Georgia.
I'm Northwest Georgia based and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story at a distance greater than 30 miles, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to get where we're going. I love getting out of my comfort zone here in Georgia and I'm happy to roam anywhere to capture photos of you and for you.
When can I expect to receive my photos?
A.Wedding packages are delivered back in a 12 week maximum.
All other photo sessions are delivered back in 2-3 weeks.
Previews for both shoots include 5-10 photos delivered in 24 hours.
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos (sometimes in fewer weeks than quoted, depending on peak season). You can download all the photos from the gallery, share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints!
How many photos will I receive?
A.Wedding packages are investments. Each package reflects the type of investment you're wanting to make. I have 3 packages to choose from and each represents an affordable option. Packages start with delivery of 200 photos and can be upgraded to include 500 photos.
For family photos, lifestyle, maternity, engagement, etc. please see investment options. Hover the image and a detailed description appears.
For 8 coverage hours for a wedding, you will receive between 300-350+ fully edited images. I always choose quality rather than quantity and that's why I will choose the best and most significant photos to tell your story. Wedding packages will be delivered back to clients within 8-12 weeks depending on peak season.
Wedding packages are customizable, upon request.
Do you do Elopements?
A.The short answer: ABSOLUTELY.
Getting technical: any travel for weddings or elopements exceeding 75 miles from Acworth, Georgia will require a travel fee. *Don't worry though, it's not astronomical. Fees include lodging, however - I'm always up for traveling, so fees are the bare minimum. Elopements are my absolute favorite thing on the planet.
How do you photograph weddings?
A.I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. I'll send you a guide to help you organize your day, the best moments for the newlyweds photos, the different lights... and it's really exciting for me to receive photos of your dress, shoes, invites!
Before your big day, I like to have either a face-to-face meeting, or go over a questionnaire to discuss your wedding day priorities. It is so important that I meet your expectations surrounding such a momentous day. We can discuss checklists of poses and family shots that are must-haves vs. having me be less intrusive and just capturing your day in a passive way.
On your wedding day, all I want is to capture the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your wedding unique. That's why I decided to photograph weddings, and I hold a special place in my heart for laid-back and nontraditional wedding days.
It's also always a good idea to include a second shooter in your wedding package, which can be added to any option. Second shooters allow for more details and angles on your big day.
