FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT DO I NEED TO BOOK A DATE WITH YOU?

After inquiry, I like to set up a phone call to get to know you and more about your day! If you book with me, I require a reservation fee taken off of the total amount of the package. This ensures that no other bookings can be booked on your date. This is due upon the signing of my photography contract.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE'S BAD WEATHER THE DAY OF OUR SESSION?

I think certain bad weather adds so much visual interest to photos, such as wind or rain! For elopements, I provide some backup locations and allow a two day window for flexibility. If all else fails, I remind my couples about the whole original intention of the day, which is to marry your best friend! So even if the weather isn't what you wanted, try to focus on the main point of the day (to marry your best friend)!

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR US TO GET OUR PHOTOS BACK, AND HOW ARE THEY DELIVERED?

For regular sessions like bridals or couples photos, it takes about 2 weeks. These sessions are delivered via an online gallery.

 

For elopements it takes about 4-6 weeks. These sessions are delivered via an online gallery.

ARE YOU AVAILABLE TO TRAVEL?

Yes!

I am willing to travel to you! I am based in Idaho, but will travel to anywhere in the Pacific Northwest and beyond to capture your day. My packages have travel included!

HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE GET?

For regular 1 hour sessions I promise 50+ images.

 

For 8 hour elopements I promise 300+ images.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO OUR ADVENTURE SESSION?

I have a blog post called Session Style Guide that goes over some outfit ideas and what colors go well together! You can also send me a message for some input! I love helping pick out outfits!

WHAT IS AN ELOPEMENT?

Elopements aren't what they used to be. Elopements are a meaningful way to get married with the guests being the closest people to you at a location that is meaningful. Guest count is usually 20 people or less. Locations range from backyards, mountaintops, ocean cliffs, or to other countries. They are focused solely on you and your other half celebrating your love and getting married. My favorite type of wedding. Read more about elopements here!

 

DO YOU GIVE OUT RAW OR UNEDITED IMAGES?

The simple answer is no. I edit all of my images according to my artistic style, and that's one of the reasons my clients book me based off of.

 

DO YOU HELP WITH THE PLANNING PROCESS?

Yes! As your elopement photographer, anything you need help with, I'm there! Things like researching permits, creating timelines, finding backup locations, providing vendor recommendations, location scouting, etc. I've got you covered!

CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP US?

Other than clearing minor blemishes or cuts/bruises, I do not alter the way my clients look. I am all about my photos being natural, and them not being fake in the final photo. These photos are of YOU, telling your story!
