ARE THE DIGITAL IMAGES INCLUDED IN THE WEDDING COLLECTIONS?
Absolutely! All wedding collections, including our elopement collection, include the fully-edited, high-resolution digital images with a print release. Depending on the collection, these images are delivered on a custom USB or by instant download through the online gallery.
HOW MANY FINAL IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?
When you’re looking for a photographer for your wedding, you want someone with experience – so you can focus on your wedding day (not worry about the photographer). Experience = reassurance for you. And experience is invaluable on a wedding day! I’ve been photographing weddings since 2007, so I can confidently say I have the experience you deserve.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE OUR IMAGES?
I work diligently to get your images in an online proofing gallery in a timely fashion…because I want you to see your wedding images while you are still excited and everything is still fresh! Typically, you can expect to see your wedding images in your online gallery approximately 2 weeks after your wedding day, but sometimes it can take up to 4 weeks during the more busy time of the season.
HOW DO PAYMENTS WORK?
A $500 non-refundable security deposit is required to secure your wedding date. The remaining balance is due no less than 1 week before your wedding date. Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted and we have an easy online method for payment.
DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT PLANS?
Absolutely! After you pay the $500 deposit, you can pay the balance on any schedule that works best for you – as long as the balance is paid in full no less than 1 week prior to your wedding day.
CAN WE VIEW A FULL WEDDING GALLERY?
Yes, please! Just ask! I encourage potential wedding clients to view full wedding galleries from any photographer they are interested in. I have several full weddings I will be happy to show you – just send me an email!
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
I am fully insured. I'm happy to provide proof of liability insurance to any venue that requires it.
WHERE SHOULD WE HAVE OUR PORTRAITS TAKEN?
The High Country (Boone, Banner Elk, and Blowing Rock area) of North Carolina is an exceptionally beautiful area. There are many amazing locations for portraits in this area and I’m happy to recommend some ideas, depending on what you have in mind for your portraits. Most portraits are taken on location, however, I can also bring professional studio lighting and backdrops to provide studio-style portraits in the comfort of your home (easy and stress-free).
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
I have a fantastic FREE GUIDE you can pick up (just visit out "tips and guides" page) that will help you with that question! In fact, if you decide to book me for your portrait session, I have another more detailed guide I send by email to make sure the “what to wear” question isn’t a source of stress.
HOW QUICKLY WILL WE SEE OUR PROOFS AFTER THE SESSION?
Online proofs are generally posted in the gallery within 7 days.
CAN WE VIEW AND ORDER OUR PICTURES ONLINE?
Absolutely! Especially since a lot of my portrait clients are not local, online proofing is a most convenient way of sharing images with you and allowing you to order prints, digital files, or other products.
CAN WE PURCHASE THE DIGITAL IMAGES?
You sure can! Most portrait clients choose to purchase the digital files from their session. The high-resolution, fully-edited digital files from your session with rights to reproduce are available for purchase through the online gallery.
WHEN IS PAYMENT DUE?
Your session fee is due on the day of your session.
