FAQ FOR EXISTING CLIENTS

 

Q. WHEN DO WE SET UP ENGAGEMENTS OR BRIDALS?

A. All engagements are set about 5-8 months in advance. It is up to my clients to reach out early in the booking process to get that date set. Most weekends are unavailable as I do shoot weddings Thursday through Sunday. I will work closely with my clients in finding the best date that works for them. 

A. All bridals are set for 2-3 months in advance. Remember to reach out to a venue or location if you want a hotel or studio setting to check availability or if they allow bridal sessions at their location.

 

Q. WHAT SHOULD WE BRING TO OUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?

A. For beautiful styling purposes, a loose, organic bouquet is always a show stopper. As well as props creating a setting. Not so much a "I said yes" sign but something to create a moment such as a picnic setting, or let's actually go to a cute street side bistro to add on to the ambiance. Having a little bit of styled flare adds a ton to your shoot.  

 

Q. SHOULD I HAVE MY HAIR AND MAKEUP DONE FOR OUR PORTRAIT SESSION (bridal, engagement, boudoir, etc.)? 

A. Absolutely! When we look good we feel good and that confidence is present  in photographs. It also allows you to play around with wedding day looks that you are wanting to try out. I know several makeup and hair artists to contact so if you're unsure who to use just shoot me an email :)

 

Q. WHEN DO YOU COVER REHEARSAL DINNERS?

A. All of my rehearsal dinners are held Mondays through Wednesdays, typically the week of your wedding date. As most of my weddings occur Thursdays through Sunday.

 

TIPS

Bring a loose organic bouquet to your bridal session.

Get hair and makeup done for bridals and boudoirs for sure.

Make sure to bring engagement ring and any other important details.

For outdoor shoots schedule your shoot to begin right before sunset or at sunrise.

In order to utiliaze our time during formals in the most efficient manner, we will highly recommend you designate a point person. This person is typically a family member who knows all the people you are requesting to be in your formal photographs. This allows us to focus on completing formals, rather than spending time locating family.
