Frequently Asked Questions
How do I book a session?
You will fill out my contact form. Then, I’ll send some info over by email, you select the package or services you want to book. I usually ask some questions to help us get to know you and your vision beforehand. Once all is set, I will send you an invoice, and then you can secure your date with a non-refundable 50% security deposit. I require the full payment prior or on your session date (30 days prior to your wedding day).
Non-refundable security deposit, what? At the time of booking, 50% of the session's fee will be required as a non-refundable security deposit. This means that I will block off your date and time, not committing to any other sessions or obligations.

How many images should I expect and how will they be delivered?
It depends on the length of your session or the package/s you selected. To know more about full pricing and packages, please fill out the contact form or directly email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your images will be fully polished and print-worthy in quality. Once your images are ready, I will send you a link to a private album that you can download, print, or share with friends and families.
Elopement/Wedding packages include a USB drive package that holds your full gallery.
Will the final images have watermarks?
Your final images will be watermark-free!
The print and media release will be stated in the contract.
What should we wear for photos?
First thing first, something that you're comfortable in and screams so You!! A quick tip though, neutral colors usually work best.
1. Please feel free to reach out to me when planning about your outfits before our session, I do provide a FREE outfit guide. I also send out a pre-session questionnaire to help us envision your session.
2. I would also love to know the theme or vibe you're envisioning for your photos. I create a Pinterest Mood-board specific to your session. So, letting me know about your outfits beforehand is more than welcome!

Do you give raw / unedited images?
Just like many other talented and creative photographers, I do not give out RAW and unedited images. Editing is part of the artistic process and it's what defines a photographer's style. The RAW, straight-out-of-camera files are usually not the most preferred way to distribute as the memory size is way too large and they are legit unfinished product!
This is why it's important that you trust me and you love both my editing and shooting style. Editing is half of the magic that goes into photos. My style is what makes me unique as a photographer and I always want to make sure my work is represented to the fullest!
What if we're awkward and don't know how to pose?
Expect me to tiptoe around like a ballerina and guide you into moments that feel familiar, never forced. There’s no standard formula, no magic tricks, just pure, soul-nurturing, heart-warming love.
I aim to build your trust to make you feel comfortable, relaxed, and just have fun! We capture real and raw moments here! I will pose and prompt you in some creative shots throughout the session, so don't worry! I like to communicate with my clients and just live in the moment! For couples, if you want to kiss, spin, or snuggle up to each other, I totally support that!
All sessions will be curated to match your vision.
When and how will we get our photos?
You will receive your images in about 3 to 4 weeks, and a handful of sneakpeeks in 2 to 3 days. They will be available to be viewed, shared, and downloaded from a gorgeous online gallery sent by me!
For Elopements & Weddings, you will receive a handful of sneak-peeks 24-48 hours after your wedding. The full gallery will be available in about 6-10 weeks at most.
