Frequently Asked Questions
There are definitely some questions you should be asking when hiring a photographer. The right fit should go both ways. You need to respect each other’s style, feel comfortable with each other, and make sure that you both have the same thing in mind: Having the best time possible!
Here are the answers to some of your most frequent questions.
What’s your favourite type of wedding to shoot?
I get asked this a lot and it never has anything to do with the outfits, the venue, or the location. Don’t get me wrong, I love a stunning setup, but it’s the people that make the wedding. The happy, super-in-love, kind and fun people are my people. I love the weddings that are laid back and where I feel at home with my couple and their family/friends. I am so lucky to shoot so many of these. If it’s all styled amazingly that’s just a bonus. A good dance party never hurts either ;)
Do you travel for weddings and are there special rates?
I definitely do! I love to travel. I’ll go across the world, across the province, or across town. My regular package includes travel within a certain distance. Epic locations that require further distances or flights will all be different depending on what you would like. We can work out something custom for your day no matter where the location.
How do we book you for our day?
Visit my contact page to send the initial e-mail and I’ll send you my wedding packages and some other fun info. Then, if you’ll have me, I require a non-refundable retainer and signed contract to secure your date.
How long after the wedding do we get our photos and how do we get them?
Within a few days of your wedding I love to send you a few photos to amp up your excitement! Within 8 to 12 weeks of your wedding day, I will send you all the photos in a private online gallery and send out your wedding album if you ordered one.
Can/should I give you a shot list?
I love that you are excited and looking for inspiration. That means photography is really important to you and you are really important to me. That being said, your wedding day is unique to you and you only. There are so many raw moments and emotions that happen naturally without having to stage anything. A shot list will distract not only you from being in the moment but me as well so let’s let those moments happen without setting them up and I promise I will catch them. I do however suggest to have your family group photos organized on paper and have a close friend read out who needs to be in what photo.
How much time do you need for photos?
Depending on how big your family and wedding party are, I suggest about 1 to 1.5 hours for photos. Smaller wedding parties and guest lists will require less time than bigger ones. Once I get to know more about your day I can help you with the best timeline to get the photos we need.
Can we share the photos on social media?
I would be honoured! A lot of my work comes from sharing your beautiful images and I truly appreciate it. All I ask is that you pretty please don’t edit them in any way. I work really hard on my brand and style and if they are edited in a different way it doesn’t properly represent what I work so hard for. A shoutout would be awesome too!
