Q: Where are you located? A: I live in a little town in Downeast Maine called Orland. Q: Do you travel for weddings? A: Yes I do! My weddings are generally in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. But if you are planning a destination wedding I would be more than willing to travel further! Q: How do you choose your second shooters? A: I choose my second shooters based on their experience level, shooting style, personality, and availability. All of my second shooters have a similar shooting style to my own, have experience with weddings, and have upbeat and professional personalities. I have an amazing list of photographers I use to second shoot weddings with me and will decide based on availability. Q: What if I don't need the engagement session/already had my photos done? A: I offer complimentary engagement sessions so we have a chance to meet before your wedding, and so you can get to know me behind the camera. You will learn how I photograph and pose, and it's really great practice before the wedding! Plus it gives you a super fun excuse to get all dressed up! If you decided against the engagement session, I also offer a bridal boudoir session in place of that. If distance is an issue you are welcome to opt out of either session as well. Q: How do I book you? A: To book your wedding date on my calendar I ask for a signed contract which I will forward to you to sign digitally (Yay for technology!) I also require a 30% retainer down at the time of booking to hold the wedding date. The final payment will be due 2 weeks before the wedding date. Once I've received the contract and retainer your date will be booked and we can begin planning the fun stuff! Q:What methods of payment do you accept? Do you offer payment plans? A: I accept all major credit cards, cash, check, or PayPal! I also offer payment plans which can be as structured or flexible as you wish. Q: Do you take any safety precautions when it comes to my wedding and images? A: Absolutely. I am fully insured with equipment and liability insurance. I bring backup equipment to every wedding as well as a second shooter to make sure nothing is missed. I shoot on two SD cards simultaneously while at your wedding, and when I arrive home I backup your images in 3 separate locations. Safety of your images is my highest priority. If none of that makes sense, just rest assured, I've got you covered! Q: How much retouching will you do to my images? A: I do minor retouching to get rid of unwanted spots or blemishes on formal photos, but I love to keep things as natural as possible. My editing style is very natural, bright and timeless. I also shoot film occasionally and try to emulate the look so it matches! Q: How will I receive my photos? A: Once your gallery is ready I will deliver you a gallery link to your email which will have all of your images. Your gallery will be easily accessible from both a computer and a smart phone! You can download, favorite, share, and post straight from your gallery on all devices.
