How long have you been a photographer?
I have loved photographing everything under the sun since I was a little kid! Professionally I have been doing this thing for about 2 years and have been an LLC for 1 year! It is absolutely crazy this is my job and life and I wouldn't trade it in for the world!
Where are you based? Do you Travel? Travel expenses?
I am based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana but YES YES YES I will travel anywhere you want to!!! I absolutely LOVE traveling and want to see the world! What better way to see the world than by doing what you love?!?
How do we get our photos?
I will send a gallery link to the emails provided in the contracts! I use Pixieset which allows me to set up your gallery all nice and pretty with categories so that you can navigate your photos swimmingly! You will be able to send this link to others, if you would like, and purchase prints from there as well!
How many photos do we get? How fast?
Photo amounts vary by the type of session you get. Although I may set a "limit" of photos, I typically send wayyyyyyy over the limit! It is just so hard to narrow down and I want you to have as many photos of your special day as possible!!
all the answers you
your Louisiana wedding
Looking for my pricing?
What are elopements?
Elopements are definitely weddings just on a smaller scale. Want a more private, intimate ceremony with only you two, me and an officiant? Or maybe just 10 guests at the ceremony? Then an elopement is perfect for you!
What if you can't make it to my wedding?
That would literally be the worst thing ever but life happens. I have a handful of photographers I would be happy to send your way and help you book them! I would refund your money and make sure you are all good to go. I would not leave you hanging!
What happens if it rains?
I am in it til the end! I have shot numerous weddings with rain on the forecast. Louisiana weather is so unpredictable that you have to prepare for the worst. I will be happy to help, shoot in the rain and make do with what we got!
What if I have to cancel or reschedule?
That would be so sad but I do understand especially with all the chaos in the past year or two. I do require a nonrefundable deposit for all weddings, elopements and sessions and you will not receive this back should you have to cancel at any time after signing the contract and booking. This is because I have to block out your date (and surrounding dates if traveling is involved) and turn down other inquiries and bookings! If you have paid me more than the non-refundable deposit you will receive that money back!
Do you help with the planning process?
UGH YES! Fun fact, before I thought about being a photographer as a career, I wanted to be a wedding planner. I love helping plan and making everything go smoothly! Florals, video, locations, dresses, I can help with it all!
Do you photograph families and other things too?
ABSOLUTELY! I absolutely love shooting families, seniors, couples, children, cake smashes, maternity and even boudoir photography! I do it all! Just go ahead and fill out the form and let me know what you're thinking!
Do you photoshop us?
I love everything au natural! If you have a scratch on your face or even a trashcan in the background, I will gladly remove those things. But I believe you in your natural beauty at the moment in time is how a picture should be captured. Why change such a perfect person?!
Do you give out raw or unedited images?
Definitely NOT! I spend a lot of time editing each photo individually and want you to enjoy the edited jpeg photos. I do not give out raws because that is not what you paid for! Honestly... sometimes the unedited photos are scary...
How soon should we book?
For weddings, I recommend booking as soon as you know the date! Popular months such as October and April book up crazy fast and I don't want your date to get taken by someone else! For families, seniors and other inquiries I would recommend 1-2 months before. Although sometimes you get lucky and can book later than that!
Do you offer payment plans? Discounts?
Yes I do offer payment plans. I am 100% willing to work with you on what is best for you. I understand weddings can be expensive so I don't want to stress you out more. I do require all payments to be paid within 2 weeks of the wedding/elopement!
