Q : What is your style?
Feminine, emotive, and constantly evolving.
Q : How long have you been shooting?
I’ve been taking pictures since I was in high school (we’re not going to talk about what year that was). My first camera was a 35mm SLR Pentax K1000. I’ve always been the girl with the camera or the girl who develops the film.
Q : Okay, so how long have you been shooting weddings?
I shot my first wedding in 2005, officially. One day I will sit down and figure out the exact number, but it is around 20 a year. Yes, I know there are other photographers who have shoot more than that every year. I feel that photographing a wedding is a gift and I know that I am being trusted with a day that can never be redone or replaced. I have photographed weddings with only a bride and groom as well as a 3 day ceremony with over 700 guests. I can’t imagine any wedding or situation that could make me feel intimidated.
Q : What kind of camera do you use and do you have a back up camera?
I shoot with 2 full frame Nikons. A D810 and D700 DSLR professional body and multiple prime and fixed aperture lenses. I use Nikon speed-lights and Paul C. Buff portable studio lighting (alien bees). If you know a little bit about photography equipment or have questions, I am more than happy to discuss my gear and technical style in more detail. Just ask 🙂
Q : Do you have a studio?
I do not own a studio, but I have several studios around the Atlanta area that I use on a regular basis depending on the mood of the shoot. Generally I prefer natural lighting, but I still got mad studio skills.
Q : Are you willing to travel?
Yes. Yes. And YES! I love traveling. Chances are if I get to go somewhere awesome AND take awesome pictures, I’ll be the happiest girl in the world. I do not have a set fee for traveling. It depends on the time and location and many other tiny details.
Q : Would you be photographing other events on the same day as mine?
Q : Is it okay if other people take photos while you’re taking photos?
I do no mind. It does not interfere with my lights. If you have guest that is compromising the quality of your images I would professionally ask you to speak with them or ask your permission to speak with them myself.
Q : Can I customize a package based on my needs?
Yes, everyone gets a customized package.
Q : Do you include engagement photos in your packages?
I prefer it that way. It gives us a chance to work together and for you to get comfortable being photographer.
Q: What type of album designs do you offer? Do you provide any assistance in creating an album?
I do not offer prints or albums at this time. I can refer you to someone who could provide assistance if needed.
Q: Do you provide retouching, color adjustment or other corrective services?
Yes, of course. For around 40-80 hours 🙂
Q : Do you take credit cards?
No, at this time I do not. I am willing to set up payment plan under certain circumstances
Q : Will I receive a written contract?
Q : How much of a deposit do you require and when is it due?
$250 Non refundable deposit due at contract signing. Remaining amount due two weeks prior to wedding date or cash day of.
Q : What is your refund/cancellation policy?
The deposit is non refundable.
Q: Do you have liability insurance?
