Frequently Asked Questions

non-traditional engagement session in couple's backyard

You seem great, but I don’t live in Georgia/I’m not getting married in Georgia. What are my options?

I love traveling! Reach out for a custom quote.

I and/or my partner hate/s getting their photo taken. Can you still work with us?

Absolutely! I actually specialize in photographing people who don’t like having their photo taken, and I work toward complete comfort in front of the camera in order to get your absolute best photos. I’m also someone who isn’t fully comfortable having my photo taken, so I get it! We play games and laugh and get you out of your head so you can focus on having a blast with your partner.

Do we have to have an engagement session?

While you don’t have to do anything, if you and/or your partner dislike taking photos at all, I would absolutely say it’s a must-have. The engagement session is, aside from being a HELL of a lot of fun, the perfect time to get to know each other before the wedding: a practice run, of sorts. And this is exactly why it’s included in all of my pre-built packages.

I want you to be as comfortable as possible while taking photos on wedding day and this is a huge step in that direction! Being more comfortable means more authentic photos and a more fun and better experience overall.

What if I love your work and vibe but your packages are out of my budget?

What’s MOST important to me is working with people who WANT to work with me, so get in touch! It never hurts to ask.

Is my date available?

The absolute best way to find this out is to ask me! I love chatting.

Do you have photos of entire weddings that I can see?

I surely do! Check out my examples. If you’re looking for any specific examples, let me know and I’ll rustle up some.

How did you get started in photography?

Straight out of college, I was hired as a photo editor at the Medieval Times photo department. My love for photography developed slowly out of that {no pun intended} until I finally mustered the courage to try out a wedding. My first wedding ever was between two 70-year-old people, their second wedding each, who were so laidback and lovely that I fell in love with weddings and never looked back.

What if I’m not ready to make a decision but I do want to talk to you?

Reach out and we’ll jump on a video or phone chat to see if we’re a good fit, and then go from there. My consultations are completely free and no-pressure.

How does the booking process work?

We’ll jump on a discovery call and get to know each other, then I’ll build you a custom package and send it over. We’ll go over everything together and when you’re ready, I’ll send over the contract & the payment information. It’ll walk you through step-by-step and once we both sign and the first payment is made, we’re officially booked!

How far in advance do I need to book with you?

The sooner, the better! The best time is between 8-12 months before your wedding, but it all just depends on your situation and the timing. Once we’re discussing your wedding, I’ll let you know immediately if someone else contacts me inquiring about your same date. Your date is not held or booked until the contract is signed and the first payment is received, but I will definitely let you know that someone else is interested in that same date.
