Planning to elope can seem like a daunting task for any Bride and Groom, but with the right support system, it is a memorable experience, and with the right photographer, those memories will be carefully documented and preserved for future generations. That's where I come in. With over 5 years of experience documenting weddings of all sizes, I've learned a thing or two from previous Brides and I pass along those tips to all of my couples. I am also ready and willing to hike for miles to that picturesque cliff where you and your love will join your lives together as one. Here are a few FAQs about my approach to wedding photography and what to expect when working with me.
HOW DO WE GET IN CONTACT WITH YOU?
Feel free to fill out the contact form below, or you can call me at 619.277.6420 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If I don't answer right away, you can expect to hear from me within 24 hours.
WHAT KIND OF WEDDINGS DO YOU DOCUMENT?
I exclusively work with couples planning elopements or small intimate weddings with guest lists of 25 or less.
I GET THE DIGITALS, RIGHT?
Yes, my collections do include digital images detailing your wedding day. However, each client receives an in person image reveal and ordering session to design your wedding album and order any other heirloom quality products such as parent albums, wall art, and gift prints.
DO YOU WORK IN ANY OTHER LOCATIONS OTHER THAN SAN DIEGO? ARE THERE TRAVEL FEES?
I absolutely love traveling and am available for destination weddings. Depending on the location, travel fees may apply. But if you are getting married in or around Big Sur, Yosemite, New York City, or internationally (Iceland anyone?), please contact me for special rates and offers.
MY BEST-FRIEND'S-BROTHER'S-GIRLFRIEND SAYS SHE'LL PHOTOGRAPHY MY WEDDING FOR ONLY $500; WHY DO YOU COST SO MUCH MORE?
The boring answer is that I run a full time photography business and in order to pay my taxes, business expenses, and rent, I need to price myself profitably based on the time I devote to every client and my craft. With over 1,500 hours spend at weddings alone, I've learned how to work fast, work thoughtfully, and provide my couples with the exceptional experience they deserve, and images they will cherish years from now.
OKAY, OKAY, SO WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO FIND OUT MORE?
Let's schedule a consultation over coffee or cocktails and talk about your intimate wedding or elopement. In this consultation, you'll tell me about why you and your fiance are amazing, how you met, and how and where you would like to document your love story. You'll also get to know more about me, my approach to photography, and my overall vibe. In addition to all of this, we will go over pricing, you will view samples of my favorite products, and (if you're ready), we will finalize all of the paperwork to get your wedding in the books. Feel free to fill out a the contact form below or email me to get started.
LET'S TALK DINERO, WHAT IS THIS GOING TO COST ME AND DO YOU REQUIRE A DOWN PAYMENT?
My wedding pricing starts at $1,400 but my most popular collection is priced at $2,699. A 25% is due at the time the contract is signed to secure your date. The rest is set up on a payment plan which we can discuss at your consultation. I accept cash, checks and credit cards for your convenience.
ALL RIGHT I CAN DO THAT. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
Yes! Definitely schedule one with me. It is included complimentary in most of my collections, and I always recommend taking advantage of the opportunity to celebrate your engagement with portraits for many reasons. It will allow you to get comfortable with me and my camera and you won't have any of those pesky wedding day jitters.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY IMAGES TO BE DELIVERED?
Engagement session images are normally delivered within 2-4 weeks of the session and wedding images are delivered within 4-8 weeks. Products can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks
