Questions I Am Asked Frequently:
What are your prices?
My prices for wedding coverage start at $2,250. For more information on my packages, get in touch and we can start talking!
My wedding is outside of Grand Rapids, do you charge a travel fee?
If the location is only a short drive from Grand Rapids (1-2 hours) I normally do not charge an additional amount. If it’s too far to drive back to GR the same day, I ask for a nights accommodation to be covered.
Can we order prints through you?
Prints are available for online ordering right through your personal online gallery.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
You bet! Thankfully we have been able to shoot at many different places and venues, so we are quite comfortable in a variety of situations.
Do you offer boudoir sessions?
I offer them on specific dates with professional hair and make-up provided. If I don't have a current date announced or if my spaces for that set are filled, I am always more than happy to set up a private time.
What happens in the event you can't make it to my wedding?
Of course. In the terrible case that I wouldn't be able to shoot your wedding for some reason, Patrick would be the first person to take my place with a back-up second shooter, but if there was an emergency that required both of us, we have a list of truly amazing photographers who would be able to step in for us.
How do we book you?
The first step is to contact me to ensure your wedding date is available. If I have it open, we can talk further via email, set up a phone call, or even grab coffee together to go over details. From there I ask for a 25% retainer along with a signed contract to reserve your date. The remainder is due 4 weeks before the wedding date.
When do we get to see our photos?
I always post a preview for you of 40-60 photos within the first week of your wedding. Your complete collection will be finished within 12 weeks of your wedding date. I personally edit each individual photo, so it does take some time, but it is always worth the wait!
Do you make wedding albums?
I do! I have a couple different options available from coffee table books that make great gifts for parents and grandparents to beautifully leather-bound albums that will be something you will treasure forever.
Do you have a second shooter or an assistant?
I primarily shoot with my husband, Patrick, as my second shooter. He has been doing this with me since day one, and with a background in video work, he has a great eye. We work really well together, so I’m so happy he’s been able to join me. In the case that he is unable to make it, I have a great group of friends in the business who I trust to help me with your day.
Do you have insurance?
Yes! More details on request.
Do you have backup gear?
