"I don't answer stupid questions" - That 70s Show
Thankfully there is no stupid question when it comes to booking your photographer. ASK AWAY!
It's a lot to read, but I want you to know all the things.
Make sure to check out the wedding & engagements portfolio & info sections to get a feel for my process!
I'm always down for a skype date or coffee hangs to see if we'd be a good fit!
If you don't see your question on this list, ask me directly here.
is meeting in person required to book?
Not at all! If you're local, I'm always down for some good foodz or drinks.
But meeting in person is in no way required. Skype or facetime is always an option as well!
I want to make sure you feel 100% confident in booking with me so ask all the questions and tell me all the random stories.
If you're already digging my vibe and you're ready to book now, LET'S DO IT LOVE!
how do payments work?
Ready to book me as your wedding photographer? $600 and a signed deposit and I'm yours!
Ready to book your portrait session - $100 deposit books your date!
Then the remainder is paid at your session or 1 month prior to weddings/elopements!
If you have more questions about payments/contracts I'll gladly answer here!
when do you deliver my images?
My weddings are delivered within 2-3 weeks. Industry standard is 3-4 MONTHS.
I'm very proud to offer my couples a faster return so you can share your moments with friends & family asap. :)
Portrait sessions are delivered within 7-10 days.
I also always send a small preview of images the night of your wedding or session.
I've been on the other side of the camera and I absolutely hated waiting to see images,
so I decided to always give my clients the treatment I would want.
what exactly is the lotus artistry lovers den?
Once you're booked you'll be added (if you want) to my facebook group of previous/future couples.
It's a place where you can ask questions, find vendors or simply be inspired!
A few times each month I also post tips/tricks for streamlining your wedding timeline, good lighting vs bad lighting and lots of other good info.
It's an info party and tight knit community, so join us!
travel fees are expensive right?
Not always! I'm just as passionate about traveling this beautiful planet as I am about photography!
No matter where you are, don't hesitate to ask if I can come to your area!
I'll gladly take a roadtrip, find a cheap flight or stay in a spare bedroom to photograph your new phase of life.
NO travel fees for North Carolina and Colorado 2018 Weddings!
you're my dream wedding photographer but i can't quite afford your prices.
should i still inquire?
I can't always work with every budget.
Being self-employed means paying for insurance, retirement, etc. out of your own pocket.
Plus feeding my two cat babies and my husband. ;) It adds up. That said...
PLEASE. Please contact me. Money is a tough thing to bring up in any situation.
I barely had a budget for photography when I got married and I completely understand having a tight budget.
Don't let that discourage you! There's lots of ways to lower your costs like having a weekday wedding or having it on a slower wedding month. Just contact me and we'll chat about your options!
can i add a wedding album or second shooter to my collection?
Yes yes yes!! I create a custom collection for each of my couples and can easily add a second shooter or album.
I'm passionate about real, in your hands, worn and torn photos.
If you would like an album, frame, canvas or prints... just let me know and I'll have it shipped to your home in no time!
do you have reviews i can peek at?
can i see a full gallery?
100% YES! Being transparent with my clients means the world to me so ask anytime!
Also check out the stories section for blog posts!
what experience do you have?
I've been photographing places and people for just over 11 years and I've been a full time photographer for 3 years!
I began my photography journey self taught and I've been an intern for 3 wedding photographers.
I have fallen in love with the entire process of my art and i'm constantly growing, learning and improving!
