About Your Photography Experience

Feeling comfortable in your wedding portraits is important, and you’ll want guidance to feel confident, so you can relax and be yourself. I’m here to help with that.

I also want to photograph you in the moment savoring the romance of your relationship and all of the amazing, beautiful feelings you feel getting married.

Before your wedding we’ll be communicating, because you’ll need timely responses to questions and help with details like how photography fits into your timeline, how to build your family portrait list, and plans for wrangling your relatives.

On your wedding day you want the in between moments captured too. The candid things that happen without planning. It might rain, or snow, your hair and make up might run late, and I’ll be there to support you with solutions for all these things that still get you amazing pictures.

FAQS

• What if we don't know our exact wedding schedule yet?

That's okay. I find most couples don't have their schedule figured out right away. I'll help you figure out how much coverage you need based on experience, and we can always adjust your coverage before the wedding day if we need to.

• Will you do our engagement shoot?

Yes. Full day wedding packages come with an engagement shoot, so if you want engagement pictures we'll do them.

• We're a little nervous about our portraits. What can you do?

A lot of couples I photograph feel this way. I'm here to guide you through portraits. The style of posing I use allows you to focus on each other instead of always looking at the camera. I'll direct you and guide you through your entire session. My goal is to give you confidence and capture the way you naturally are together.

• Where are you located?

I'm in Belle Plaine, Minnesota which is halfway between Minneapolis and Mankato. I enjoy being in a small town with the ability to travel to most major cities in Central and Southern Minnesota.

• Do you travel?

Yes. Travel within about 2 hours of Belle Plaine, MN is included for weddings. This covers the Twin Cities, St. Cloud, Mankato and Rochester areas. If you need more travel, let's talk about it.

• How long have you been doing photography?

I've been a photographer for over 10 years. I started out doing commercial photo assisting in college, then graduated in 2008 and went to work at a corporate studio. In August of 2012, I opened my own business full time.

• What if you haven't been to my venue?

I'm always excited to travel somewhere new and bring a fresh perspective to your venue. I can do a tour on. my own or with you, so I'm familiar with venue spaces and lighting conditions before your wedding day. I'll also do a lot of additional research on your venue to help me plan for your wedding.

• How many pictures do we get?

My goal is to deliver pictures that feel complete in telling your wedding story.

The final number of pictures you receive depends on how long I’m shooting and what events happen during the wedding. Generally you can expect to receive at least 500 pictures from a full day wedding.

• Do you edit our pictures?

Yes. I want the colors and light in your pictures to be natural and beautiful. However, I don’t do things like give you a tan, cover tattoos, erase every wrinkle on your face, or drastically modify your body.

• How long does it take to get our pictures back?

My turnaround time varies by season. Typically, you’ll be able to view your photos online about 6-8 weeks after your wedding. I know you'll be waiting and wondering how your wedding pictures turned out, so I'll also post a little preview to social media a few days after your wedding, and provide you with a high resolution version of the preview too.

For engagements and other shoots editing time is 3 weeks.

• Can we print our pictures?

Yes! Please do. You get printing rights. You can download your files and use your preferred printer. You also get access to my professional lab with your gallery.

• Can we share our pictures on social media?

Yes! You can share them on your social media accounts. If you can tag me that would be awesome too.

• Can you provide my venue with an insurance certificate?

Yes. I have liability insurance for this reason. Let me know in advance, because it will take time to process the request.

• What if my wedding is 2 or more days long?

I can build a personal package for you to make sure you get the printed items you need (like albums), and the coverage you need for multiple days of celebration.
