Wedding & Portrait FAQs
Do you book more than one wedding a day? No, I limit my wedding bookings to one per day.
Do you give direction when taking photos to get your shots? Definitely – knowing how to pose yourself can be stressful and challenging, so I will give the direction you need so that you feel comfortable and look your best. I also like to take a lot of candid shots to authentically capture people in the moment.
Do you bring back-up equipment in case of malfunction? Yes :)
How do you provide proofs? Proofs are digitally provided on a password-protected gallery available for viewing, sharing with friends and family, and ordering prints. These proofs will be available online for 90 days.
Do you provide digital images to the client? Digital images (plus a release form) are available depending on the portrait package agreed upon. I do, however, provide digital images with all of my wedding packages.
What touch-ups, if any, do you make to the images? All images go through basic processing which includes lighting & color adjustments, blemish touch-ups, etc. I aim to edit my images in a way that is clean and natural so that the editing is not a distraction from the actual photograph.
Where can you travel for weddings and photo shoots? I am available to travel worldwide for all photography needs :) I will provide a custom quote for travel expenses outside of the hill country area. In most cases, expenses will include transportation and two hotel nights. Travel expenses are billed separately from the photography contract.
Do you photograph weddings where the bride and groom choose not to see each other before the ceremony, or do you only photograph weddings with a first look? I photograph both traditions. There are various reasons that many photographers and clients prefer to have a “first look” before the ceremony. It will allow more time for photos of the entire wedding party, bride & groom, etc., so that after the ceremony, we can quickly do family portraits and move right on into the reception. I personally prefer this method because of the intimate, genuine reaction that both the bride and groom get when they have a first moment together that just the two of them can share. It’s a romantic moment and it really helps to ease the nerves, too!
