Wedding Photography Questions & Answers

• WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK?

Most couples reserve their date 6-12 months in advance, so if you're thinking about booking don't wait until the last minute. Planning a small celebration in a shorter time frame? Contact me asap.

• HOW DO WE BOOK?

When you send me a message I'll send you helpful links to more information, plus invite you to a pre-booking chat. If we're a good fit to work together and you’re both completely excited about having me at your wedding-it’s time to reserve your date. I'll send you booking documents to complete through my online portal.

• DO WE NEED A DEPOSIT?

To be fully booked, 25% of your total package is due as a retainer that reserves your date on my calendar.

• WHAT IF WE DON'T KNOW OUR EXACT WEDDING PLANS?

Most couples don’t have everything figured out right away, and that's okay. It will all come together as you plan and I'm always here to help.

• WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

In Belle Plaine, Minnesota which is halfway between Minneapolis and Mankato. I enjoy being in a small town very close to the Twin Cities because it allows me to enjoy beautiful natural spaces as well as all the benefits of the cities.

• DO YOU TRAVEL?

Yes. Travel within about 90 minutes of Belle Plaine, MN is included for weddings. This covers the Twin Cities, St. Cloud, Mankato, Stillwater, and Rochester areas. If you need more travel let's talk because I love a good road trip.

• WHAT IF YOU HAVEN'T VISITED MY VENUE?

I'm always excited to travel somewhere new and bring a fresh perspective to your venue. I can do a tour with you, so I'm familiar with venue spaces and lighting conditions before your wedding day. I also do a lot of research on your venue to prepare.

• 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.

• DO YOU EDIT OUR PICTURES?

Yes. I want the colors and light in your pictures to be natural and beautiful. Natural skin softening is done if you need it. 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 UNTIL WE GET OUR PHOTOS BACK?

Editing time will be 8 weeks or less. I hand edit and look at every picture at least twice. I'll also post a little sneak peek to social media the week after your wedding, and provide you with a high-resolution version of the preview in your gallery.

For engagements and other portraits editing time is 3-4 weeks depending on the season.

• HOW DO YOU GIVE US OUR PHOTOS?

Your pictures are delivered in an online gallery. You can download each file as a high-resolution print-ready picture, plus you get optimized copies for social media sharing.

• DO WE GET RIGHTS TO OUR PHOTOS? CAN WE SHARE THEM?

You get a release of use for your photos, delivered via email with every download. It says that you have permission to use your files for any personal use like social media and printing on your own.

• CAN YOU GIVE MY VENUE AN INSURANCE CERTIFICATE?

Yes. I have liability insurance for this reason.
