How do we officially book?
If you’re ready to book, let me know and I’ll send you a contract to sign and an invoice for the retainer fee. It’s all online, so it’s super easy!
Does the retainer fee work toward our total?
Yep! The retainer fee is always $500, so if your package total is $2,000, then you’ll owe $1,500 after the retainer.
Do you travel?
Sometimes! I make room for a few elopements outside of the Ozarks a year, and a couple of international elopements as well.
Do you take bigger weddings?
Sure do! Elopements and intimate weddings are definitely my usual, but I still love to photograph a few larger weddings every year!
Do you help with the timeline?
YES! I have a guide I can send you to get you thinking about what types of things you’d like to include in your day, and then we can set up a time to create a timeline. A timeline can be super stressful if you’ve never done it before–luckily, I do it all the time!
How long have you been photographing?
I’ve been taking photos as my main job since I was a 15-year-old baby! So 11 years. I’ve been doing weddings and elopements for the last 6 years, and I love it!
Will you pose us?
Kinda sorta! I’ll give you some general prompts so you’re not standing there awkwardly trying to figure out what to do–that would be the worst. But I’m definitely not going to put you in super statue-esque poses that don’t feel like you. My couples always say at the end of their sessions or elopements that pictures were so much easier and more fun than any photo experience they’ve had. That’s the type of experience I’ve put years into creating!
Will you photoshop us?
My rule of thumb when it comes to editing is that if it’s a temporary thing you don’t love–like acne or a red nose on a cold day–then I’m totally looking out for those things and will fix them as I edit! However, I definitely don’t edit things like your nose shape, bodyweight etc.
How many photos will we receive?
I don’t have a hard and fast rule, but I tend to send somewhere between 400 and 1,000! My goal is to always give back an album that fully encapsulates what your day looked and felt like, while getting rid of anything unflattering or repetitive.
How do we receive our photos?
I use a program called Pic-Time where you can get access to all of your photos and download them soon as they’re ready! They can even be downloaded to multiple devices! This online album stays online for at least 2 months, so you have plenty of time to download.
Is there a charge for downloading photos?
Nope! All of your photos are yours to download in both high-resolution and web-size at no additional cost.
Can we elope with our kids?
YES! Let me know if you’re wanting to elope with little ones, and I can help you find some family-friendly trails and elopement locations. I even have some suggestions for making eloping with kids a breeze!
