stuff to know
(that you probably didn't know you needed to know)
What is your shooting style?
Non-traditional, artistic, and intentional. I like to keep a documentary/photojournalistic style meaning that I am always looking for real moments and genuine reactions to capture. However, i'm always down for a good moody portrait or editorial-esque pose.
How to book:
To secure your date all you need is a signed contract and a paid non-refundable retainer of 50% of your package total. The remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding day. Payments can be made via bank transfer.
What is Zelle?
It's basically Venmo, but through your banking app! Find Zelle in the mobile banking app of the Zelle partners. If you already have your banking app on your phone, there's no download necessary. If your bank or credit union doesn't offer Zelle yet, just download the Zelle app to get started.
Hours are continuous and can not be split up.
Can we have all of the photos you take include the raw, unedited images?
No siree! I promise to deliver only the best of the best images from your big day. You'll get around 40 images/hour depending on the size of your elopement, amount of details, number of formal family photos, etc.
As soon as I get home I back everything up in at least two locations and I always keep the images on my memory cards until delivery. I also always carry backup gear to your wedding. Speaking of gear, i'm a Canon gal incase you were wondering. (but you probably weren't)
I love to travel! If your wedding is more than 90 miles roundtrip from 78731 there will be a travel fee of $1/mile plus an additional $150 if 1.5+ hours from Austin. There is a flat rate travel fee of $750 for stateside weddings and $1,500 for international weddings.
What is a first look?
I'm real glad you asked. A first look is a private moment between you and your bride/groom (and me of course!) before the ceremony. That's right-- the first time you see each other on your wedding day doesn't have to be when one of you walks down the aisle. There are 500 good reasons to do a first look, but i'll give you two.
1. Time- the time you get with each other on your wedding day is practically doubled when you do a first look. You are marrying your absolute best friend, so why would you want to spend all that time before the wedding away from them? Plus if you do a first look you won't have to share them with all of your guests until after the ceremony. Once the ceremony happens the rest of your wedding goes by with lightening speed. Seriously. Blink and it's over.
2. Photos- first looks are a lifesaver when it comes to a photography timeline. The only photos left post-ceremony are those larger family groupings which means that you can get to partying with your guests sooner. I
I have photographed a lot of weddings so the list I use is more of a mental checklist. The only lists I work from are ones made by the bride and groom for family photos.

Why do I have to pay taxes?
