Frequently Asked

WHAT DO YOU CHARGE?

I try to keep my rates as straightforward and customizable as possible. A regular 1-hour portrait session is $200, and a 2-hour session is $250. Weddings start a-la-carte at $2100, which includes 2 photographers for 6 hours of coverage, and additional hours can be added at $100 per hour. Talk to me about what you need, and I’ll be more than happy to pull together a custom quote for you!


HOW LONG IS A SESSION?

Average portrait sessions usually last about an hour. Certain sessions, like bridals or newborns, take closer to 2. Weddings are a whole different story— check out my post, THE WEDDING TIMELINE, for an idea of how much time we’ll need to sufficiently capture everything that happens on the big day.


WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?!

Wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident– it will show! For family sessions, I suggest starting with one outfit that you love, then choosing everyone else’s outfit based on a similar color palette. Don’t be afraid to add colors or mix patterns and fabrics (matchy-matchy is overrated).


HOW MANY PICTURES WILL WE RECEIVE? & HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THEM BACK?

On average, you can expect around 50-80 edited photos per hour of shooting. Depending on the length of the session and amount of other bookings that month, editing takes between 3-8 weeks (portraits closer to 3, weddings closer to 8). I’ll always try to get them turned around as quickly as I can!


DO YOU DELIVER DOWNLOADS OR PRINTS?

I’ll send your pictures in an online gallery, where you’ll be able to download all the high-resolution files. You can order prints directly through the gallery (via White House Custom Color – whcc.com), or take the files and have them printed anywhere you prefer.


DO YOU TRAVEL?
YES! I LOVE to travel. I love photography. Put those two things together, and I’m in heaven. Let’s talk <3
