I recommend booking at least 6-8 months in advance so we have time to schedule your engagement session, plan your timeline together, and to secure your date. However, I do occasionally have a few open dates, so even if it is last-minute, please reach out!
how far in advance do i need to book you for my wedding?
You get a sneak peek of photos within 24 HOURS of your wedding day! Your full gallery is delivered within 8 weeks. You'll receive a fully edited, high resolution online gallery with a personal print release. You can download your photos and share the link with family & friends if you'd like.
how and when are our photos delivered?
About 50% of my couples choose to include a first look on their wedding day! If you would like to get some couples photos done early, or if either of you might be feeling a little bit nervous, I highly recommend it so you can feel more "in the moment" during your ceremony.
Do you recommend a "first look" on the wedding day?
This is up to you! I generally recommend 20 minutes each for family photos, wedding party group shots, and couples portraits. But if you'd like to spend a little less or a bit more time, that is fine too - it's your day!
how much time should we set aside for wedding photos?
YES. Backup plans, including backup equipment and correct file storage, are so important to me! I can provide a COI for your venue if needed.
Do you have insurance & backup equipment?
Nope, it's the same either way! I firmly believe that every wedding day deserves the same level of care & detail, whether your plan includes guests or not. I love weddings big & small - I never place a guest count limit on pricing!
Is pricing different for elopements vs weddings?
I am based in beautiful Simi Valley, CA!
I love being a part of the Southern California wedding community.
I know you travel, but where is your home base?
You receive all of the best photos - I just remove the duplicates, blinks, etc! I never cut off your gallery at a certain number of images. I don't believe in limiting your memories!
Do you deliver every image from our shoot?
