frequently asked questions

Where are you based? Do couples ever travel to you for shoots?

I'm based in San Francisco, CA, but I travel all over the globe to capture love. And yes! I have tons of clients make the trip to California for an epic shoot.

How many weddings do you take on per year?

This changes every year. I find myself taking on less and less each year in order to give all of my clients the absolute best experience.

Do you do same-sex weddings?

A million times YESS!!! LGBTQIA+, no matter how you identify and regardless of how you define your relationship, I'd love to be a part of your wedding day. Love is love and I'm 100% here for it!

How many images do you deliver?

A lot. 
I know we are all our own worst critic, so I include loads of options so that you can choose your favorites. I may love one shot, and you may love another - so i'll include lots of variety. 
In general, you can expect roughly 100 images per hour of shooting. 

What's your turnaround time? 

I have a heavy value on work-life balance so I've set boundaries around editing time to ensure I'm still spending plenty of time with my loved ones. That being said, I've been doing this for a long ass time so I've got my workflow down. Sessions are typically delivered in three weeks or less and weddings are typically delivered in 6 weeks. You can always add on a rush fee if you are in a hurry though! 

How will I receive my photos?

Firstly, I'll send you a handful of sneak peek shots a couple of days after your session or wedding. When the gallery is complete, you'll receive a link to your online gallery where you can easily order prints and download the high-res images.

Do you give RAW or unedited photos?

Nope. I take a lot of pride in my editing and I believe editing is half the magic. When you are hiring me, you are are hiring me for my style! Editing plays a huge part in my style as an artist.

We don't want our photos on social media

This is your wedding and if you are uncomfortable with your photos being shared on my social media platforms, I will respect that.

What happens if disaster strikes?

This has never happened and will NEVER happen. However, if it did, I have contacts all over the world that will be able to step in. These are other talented photographers who will take good care of you.

Do you have a payment plan?

Yes, we can organise to split your payments into four installments. Just let me know if this would suit you.

Can I print my photos?

Of course, I'd love for you to print your favourite photos! You can easily order photos prints through your online gallery.

What if I have to cancel or move booking?

Life is complicated and the unexpected is to be expected. The deposit is non refundable as this helps to protect my business due to turning away all other booking for your wedding date. I hope you understand that deposit is insurance for my business to stay afloat in the event of a cancellation.

Do you photoshop us?

I will never alter the way you look, other than removing impermanent blemishes like bruises, scrapes, or pimples. I want you to see the real, raw version of yourself, and not a photoshopped, photoshoot version of yourself. However, if you are self conscious about something, let me know so I can be mindful when posing you!
