Frequently asked questions
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I base myself out of Bar Harbor, Maine and surrounding areas, but I am always up for an adventure if you're not from around here!
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Yes!!! I absolutely love traveling to new places and I am always looking for an excuse to hop on a plane or take off on a road trip. I waive the travel fee for many out of state weddings so I can cross some places off my bucket list!
DO YOU WORK FROM A SHOT LIST?
Only for family formals! I will provide you with a shot list prior to your wedding to make family portraits an organized, easy-flowing process. I don't use a shot list for any other parts of the day. I know my "go-to" shots, plus it allows me to create freely and capture those real moments throughout the day!
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK YOU?
As soon as possible! All dates are first come, first serve so it is never too early to reach out!!
HOW DO I BOOK YOU?
You can get started by filling out my contact form and give me all the deets about your day! I will then respond with my package options and offer for us to set up a time to chat on the phone to answer questions and get to know each other a bit. If it seems like we're a good fit for each other, I will send over a contract and invoice for you to fill out and submit digitally. I just need a signed contract and 40% non-refundable deposit to reserve your date! You can read more about the full experience here!
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR SECOND SHOOTERS?
I carefully select my second shooters based on their skill level, experience, gear, and availability. I choose somebody who has a similar shooting style, upbeat personality, and is willing to conform their style to align with mine, and how I represent my business.
DO WE NEED TO DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
It's not required, but I highly recommend it! Not only does it give us a chance to meet and get to know each other a little bit, but it gives you some experience in front of my camera so you can get a feel for how I typically shoot, pose, and handle lighting. It’s basically a practice round that will make you feel so much more comfortable with me during your wedding portraits! Plus, you’ll get some awesome new photos!
HOW DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
I carefully select the best photos to include in your gallery and edit them on the bright side of natural. I love my photos to have a bright, warm, colorful feel without straying far from their natural color. I do minor retouching to formal portraits when necessary (to remove noticeable stains, blemishes, bruises, etc.), but I do not make changes to anything that will still be there in a few days.
HOW & WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
I will email an online gallery link to you so that you can view, share, download, and order prints of your photos. You can expect your wedding photos back with 1-2 months and your engagement photos with 4-6 weeks of your session.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
I do! I am happy to provide proof of insurance to venues that request it.
