How do I book a shoot?

Reach out to me using my contact form or DM me on Instagram!

 

Is a deposit required?

 50%  of your Session price is required in order to book. Nothing is booked or set until the deposit is paid, therefore, your desired time slot is up for grabs in order to prevent future scheduling conflicts. 

What happens if I need to cancel or reschedule a shoot?

I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, however life happens. If you need to reschedule the 50% deposit will not be refunded, and instead will go towards rescheduling your new session. 

Do I get to choose which photos are edited?

I'm generally good at choosing the best images after pulling all the blurred, outtakes, and repeats, but if you have a specific request I'm more than happy to schedule a time to meet up and look through the album together. (This does not apply to TFP)

 

How long does it take you to edit photos?

For Lifestyle Shoots 2-3 weeks from when you make your selections.  The turn around time for band and event photography will be within 24-48 hours from the shoot. If you are working with a time constraint, please let me know in advance and we can make something work!

How are images delivered?

You will receive your images in a shared drop box album from which you can download the photos at full quality unless previously discussed.

 

Can you provide the raw, unedited files?

when you invest in a session, your money is not only going towards the time and effort it takes to shoot,but the understanding that you're hiring me for my personal style and aesthetic. It would not be beneficial for my brand to solicit unedited and incomplete work, just as it would not be worth your investment without the actual quality you're paying for.

 

Do you provide printed images?

Unless previously discussed, all of the edited images will be received via digital files. I'm happy to discuss third party printing options for an extra fee. 

 

How does your shooting time limit work?

The hourly package options begin at the time of shooting. These hours do not include the time that it takes me to get to and from different locations as well as the time spent editing. Locations more than 20 miles from my starting destination will be charged a small travel fee. 

Can I bring a friend/family member to the shoot?

Of course! It's always great to have someone to be a helping hand or snap a few behind the scenes photos so long as they're not distracting from the session or using pro equipment. 

I’m a photographer or model and would like to collaborate!

I love working with other creatives! Please contact me and include your name and the type of collaboration you'd like to do in the subject line along with your instagram.
