F A Q's
An attempt to soothe those burning questions.
DO YOU HAVE A 2ND PHOTOGRAPHER?
No. Like Beyoncé, I excel as a solo artist.
DO YOU DO ANY "NORMAL", MORE TRADITIONAL PHOTOS?
Yes! I get some traditional portraits, smiling at the camera. I want to provide images everyone in your inner circle can love.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I OBTAIN?
A minimum of 400. But I usually deliver more. You also get a color and black&white version of each photo.
HOW LONG WILL IT BE UNTIL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
You will be emailed a link to your online gallery no later than 8 weeks after your wedding.
DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?
Yes. I have three camera bodies and multiple lenses.
DO YOU INCLUDE OR SELL THE RAW FILES OR UNEDITED IMAGES?
No. My editing process is very much a part of what you're paying for and get when you book me.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED?
I captured my first wedding in June 2014. As of January 2023, I've photographed 121 weddings.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes. I have insurance for my equipment and general liability.
WE'RE NOT PAYING, DO WE STILL NEED TO DO THE CONTRACT STUFF?
Yes. Regardless of who is paying, you, the couple, needs to sign the contract.
DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT PLANS?
DO YOU PHOTOSHOP?
No. I'm a body positive activist. Therefore, I do not photoshop my subjects. I'm happy to clean up blemishes because I know those can be out of your control, but I will not photoshop or manipulate your body in anyway. Such retouching does more harm than good and I refuse to add to the problem. You're fantastic just the way you are.
IS THE RETAINER REFUNDABLE?
No. However, if you find you need to cancel my services with you, any payments you made (other than the retainer) is refundable if I am able to book another wedding event for your date.
CAN I VIEW A FULL/COMPLETE WEDDING GALLERY?
Yes. At our consultation, I will link you to at least one full wedding gallery. Until then, you can view highlight galleries on my blog.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Send me an inquiry and we'll set up a consultation. After the consultation, and you decide to book me, I will email you an invoice for the retainer and contract. The retainer is 35% of the cost of your selected collection.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU'RE UNABLE TO COME THE DAY OF THE WEDDING?
There are several networks of photographers in the Louisville area I can reach out to and I have several photog friends who will step up to the plate if I need them to.
DO I NEED TO INCLUDE YOU IN MY CATERING HEADCOUNT?
I would appreciate it but you also don't have to. And if your caterer says they'll give me a "vendor meal" then just exclude me because I'd rather sit in a dark corner and eat a moldy granola bar than a "vendor meal".
I eat at the same time as the couple during the reception. If you choose to not include me in your catering count, let me know so I can make arrangements.
WHAT'S YOUR PREFERRED METHOD OF CONTACT?
E-mail. You can call me but honestly, I generally don't answer my phone because of the amount of scam & spam calls I get so be prepared to leave a voicemail. Better yet, just text me.
