the little details
below are commonly asked questions about my photography style, shoots, booking, and packages. if you don’t find what you are looking for or want to elaborate on a question listed here, please reach out to me using the contact page and i’m happy to help you there. looking forward to hearing from you!
What kind of photography do you do?
i love photography. period. however, my most common types of shoots tend to be engagements, portraits/families, lifestyle, and weddings.
What is lifestyle photography?
this is a storytelling kind of shoot. i focus on the people, place, details, emotion. it paints a full picture of what’s going on. this is ideal for website or social media content, brands, bloggers, or small businesses.
Where are you located?
i’m just outside of portland, oregon and serving the surrounding areas. however, i can travel as well. reach out and we can get you a quote depending on where you are located.
Do you package your weddings by hours?
no, i don’t. weddings are an all-day event and trying to fit everything you want into a set schedule of hours can be stressful. i’ll be there to capture it all but we’ll discuss timing that fits your wedding after you book. i usually arrive during bridal prep and leave after all the scheduled events. my wedding packages are priced based on how robust of a package you want. learn more in the next question!
Do you offer albums for your wedding packages?
yes! my wedding packages aren’t based on hours, they are based on how robust of a package you’d like. so some packages just include me, shootin’, and doing my thing. some packages come with a second shooter, some packages include albums or prints. some include the engagement session, some don’t. it’s up to you, and the price will reflect that.
Do you offer a second shooter?
yes, i can. see the above question for more information.
How long until we see our pictures?
great question! every shoot will get a sneak peek within a day or two of your shoot, which usually includes 1-5 professionally edited images that i just simply can’t wait to share. from there, engagements, families, portraits, and in-homes will all take 4-6 weeks from the shoot day. weddings and lifestyle can take up to 8 weeks due to the high number of photos to edit through.
Can we print the pictures ourselves or do you require to print them for us?
both! you have printing rights to the photos, so most clients prefer to handle it themselves. however, if you want me to take care of it for you - let me know, i can also help.
Do you travel?
yes! i would love to discuss your ideas and locations to help create a custom package for you.
What’s in your camera bag?
i have the canon 6d mark II, and a series of canon lenses that i love! i use the 24-70mm 2.8, 100 2.8 macro, and the nifty 50mm 1.4. i also have a flash to use when natural light is unavailable. i’m always looking to change and upgrade my gear, let me know if you have any recommendations!
Can we meet before booking?
yes! in fact i prefer it, if you have the time. if you’re local to portland we can grab coffee beforehand. facetime is also an option if you’re not local.
