Do you edit all of our photographs?
Yes. Every image that you receive has been hand-edited, one at a time. My editing style is typically minimal with a classic look that will last for decades.
Where do you live and how far will you travel?
I live in Mobile, Alabama and I am willing to travel anywhere in the United States. I offer custom wedding collections for destination weddings.
Do we receive the raw, unedited files?
The raw, unedited files are not available for viewing or purchase. This is very much like asking your caterer to give you the leftover ingredients used to make your dinner. The images selected for editing and final delivery reflect my very high standards and everything else is archived.
I don't photograph well and I feel really awkward in front of a camera...can you help me?
If this happens to describe you, I understand how you feel and I'm here to help. I will make sure you're at ease in front of the camera and look natural and lovely in your photos. Some people take a little longer to warm up, and in those cases I take a little time to do a few candid shots that will help you to relax and feel comfortable throughout the experience. I make it painless and fun, and it won't be nearly as bad as you think!
You're the photographer for us! How do we reserve our wedding or portrait date?
Nice! The next step is to EMAIL ME to let me know your date so I can check my availability. Once we select the best package for you, I will send you a contract to sign and instructions on how to pay the retainer. I cannot hold any date for a wedding without both the retainer and contract completed.
I'm working on a budget, will you give me a discount?
The wedding collections have been carefully curated and priced according to their value, so the short is answer is "No". However, if you are working on a budget, I have wedding coverage starting as low as $1195 to cover the essentials of any wedding day and you will receive the same signature service as all other clients. I also provide a payment plan to make it super easy. Please contact me for details.
Do I need to provide meals for vendors at my wedding?
Nearly all of my clientsprovide meals for their vendors as a curtesy during the reception, we simply work at a high level longer if we've been fed! We thank you in advance!
Do you do video too?
No, I provide photography only. I prefer to do the absolute best job and provide the absolute highest quality of work for you, and there is no way that I could do that if I were trying to do two things at the same time. I am solely focused at your wedding on capturing beautiful photos that you will preserve in your album and frame on your walls. Please see my list of vendors for videographers (the list is continuously being updated).
