i don’t! if you're getting married outside of nyc, take me with you! traveling is always an option & i’m always up for a change in scenery.
where are you based out of?
i am currently based out of brooklyn, ny but i plan to be based in california by march of 2020.
will you not be taking on any more ny weddings?
ny is where i grew up and will definitely still be taking them on here and there with travel fees of course! i am only taking on a handful for 2020 so if that’s WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING TO GET MARRIED, LET’S CONNECT ASAP!
how long is your turnaround time?
for regular sessions- anywhere from 6-8 weeks with teasers within 3-5 days for weddings- anywhere from 10-12 week with teasers within 10 days
how do we get our photos?
you will have access to your own private online collection with full high-resolution photos that you can download immediately to your phone and/or computer (& share with family!)
what does being your client “feel” like?
a good client experience is super important to me from the second you inquire, until after the wedding day. my number one goal as a photographer is to build a relationship with you because hey, no one wants a photographer that they can't trust or feel comfortable with. all my packages include not only INCLUDE COVERAGE & PHOTOS but also complimentary timeline creation and advice. in other words you have me to answer questions and help you with anything from the second you book me until your wedding day. if you need help deciding what kind of dress will look best, what time/where you should get ready, color coordination, etc. i'm only an email/text away. not many other photographers do this but, it's something that i genuinely enjoy doing for my couples because i want you guys to feel at ease throughout the entire process. come wedding day i'll be there to crack jokes so photos not only look but feel candid, give you a pep talk if you need it, fix your lipstick, basically taking on the role of a 5th or 10th bridesmaid. // no matter what it is, i'm your girl.
what if me or my s/o is photo shy? how do you approach this?
i’m pretty photo shy myself (& SO IS MY BF!) so i get it 100%. MY GOAL DURING OUR TIME TOGETHER IS to make you guys feel as comfortable as possible. i always start off by letting you guys interact the way you would naturally and THEN I’LL STEP IN & guide/direct from there so it feels less posed & more as if it were any other day with your s/o. i do have more tips for this as well!
do you have insurance?
yes! i do. // some venues require A COI, so let me know and i'd be more than happy to provide it.
do we get every photo you take? raw files?
i don't provide every photo i take, nor do i provide raw images. i go through all the images pick out the best, edit them with my coloring and style (this is a huge process for me & a huge huge part of what you pay for which is why i do not provide raw images) and then, deliver those specifically in a mix of color and black & white.
keep in mind that photo count varies on amount of hours booked.
how do we book? what do you require?
head to my say hello page tell me a bit about yourself, your s/o, your vision, your day, etc. // then once we chat back and fourth & you decide what package works best for you & YOUR day, i require a signed contract & a $1,500 deposit (for weddings specifically). once these two steps are completed, your date is officially booked! it's fairly easy & i promise i don't take long to respond to emails.
how far in advance do you book?
i book 12-18 months in advance, sometimes even further out. // keep in mind that bookings are made on a first come first serve basis!
