How many images will I receive?

For weddings, I typically deliver 100 photos for each hour that I am there. This is not a guarantee, and the number of final images will depend on the timeline and other factors. For portrait sessions, I deliver 30+ high-resolution images via your gallery.

How soon will I get my photos?

For weddings, I tell couples to be on the look out within 3-4 weeks of their wedding day. This allows me to go through, pick the best images, edit each one, and retouch the bride and groom portraits. For portrait sessions, including engagement sessions, please allow 2 weeks to receive your final gallery.

Do I need a permit for my engagement location?

Most locations in and around D.C. do require a permit, whereas most other locations do not. If you are unsure about your location, please let me know and I will look into it for you. A list of many sites that do require permits can be found here. If your location does require a permit, I will be responsible for the paperwork, but you will be responsible for the payment. Permit payment fees are due one week before your scheduled engagement session.

Do you shoot weddings that aren’t local to you?

Absolutely! There are small travel fees for any location more than 60 miles from my house in Waynesboro, VA, but some locations will have discounted travel fees, as I am dying to photograph a wedding there! Current bucket list of locations: Joshua Tree NP, Yosemite NP (pretty much any national park), the Pacific Northwest, Greece, Italy, and Spain.

Where should we take our engagement session photos?

For help with all things wedding planning, check out my blog posts on the topic here. Specifically, here is a blog post highlighting some of my favorite engagement session location ideas!

Who is your second shooter? Is it helpful to have one?

Oh my goodness - absolutely!! I love, love, love working with other photographers, and I think it is invaluable to have a second shooter on your wedding day. Almost all of my packages include one, and I always push for clients to add one on if their package doesn’t include one. To meet my usual second shooter and view his portfolio, click here.
