Nope. Editing is a huge part of my art. I pour my heart and soul into making sure your final images are perfect. I'll deliver all the photos you'll want, and if for some reason you think I missed something - just ask! 

DO YOU DELIVER RAWS OR UNEDITED PHOTOS?

All of my packages include only light retouching on things that are temporary. Including things like a scar, bruise or blemish, things that will go away in a week or two. I don't believe in photoshopping the appearance of someone. I am big into self love and my goal as a photographer is to capture my couples authenticity and realness.  

Will you photoshop me?

Travel fees are in addition to the investment of my packages. The reasoning for this is because every experience is different, and the cost will never be the same. However travel within the lower Peninsula of Michigan is covered in my packages.  

Included in my travel fees would be a round trip plane ticket from Grand Rapids, Detroit or Kalamazoo, MI to your wedding, elopement or session destination, a rental car, and 2 nights in a hotel or air bnb. For international travel, everything will be the same expense wise, but 4 nights in a hotel/air bnb instead of 2.

What do travel fees look like for you? / are they included?

Yes, all my local Michigan packages include a second photographer for your wedding or elopement. Anything outside of Michigan, a second photographer can be added on, but their travel (a round trip ticket) would be included in the travel fees.

Do you include a second shooter or assistant?

Your photos will be delivered as an online gallery! You can view, share and download all of the images from your own little photo website! The gallery is guaranteed to be accessible for 3 months. After the 3 month mark, you are responsible for keeping your images safe! Couples sessions are delivered within 30 days and weddings are delivered within 60 days. Weddings & elopements include a keepsake USB. 

How and when are the photos delivered?

Depending on the forecast, unless it's an actual thunder storm or a tornado, I say let's embrace it! A little rain never hurt anyone and it just makes your photos that much more romantic and wild. 

What if the weather is bad?

If you have already booked your date with me, and for some reason you have to cancel or reschedule, the deposit is non-refundable or transferable. I have held a date and put it in my calendar, and may have turned someone else away from wanting that date. In order to book your new date, I would need a new deposit paid. 

What if we have to cancel or reschedule?

Once we have gotten to know each other a bit, gone over all of the logistics and you feel like I am the perfect match to capture your vision, I'll send over my proposal! Within the proposal you will find the contract for you to look over and sign, the date, package details and location we have decided on and a place to make payments. I require a $750 non refundable deposit on any wedding and elopement packages, and $150 non refundable deposit on any couples session. The remaining payments can be broken up into a payment plan, but must be paid in full a week before your date. Send me an inquiry on my contact page and we'll get this party started!

What’s the booking process like / how do we book you?

I got you! I'll give you guidance. I have created a pinterest board that walks you through and gives you the outfit inspo you need and I'll send it your way! 

What to wear?

Currently I am booking out to 18 months in advance. If you know you want me 100% - let's get that date booked while it is still available! If you want to inquire earlier than 18 months in advance, I'd love to still chat with you! We can at least talk through details and your vision. 

How far in advance can I book you?

I do not currently offer any discounts, it would not be fair to my clients that book me at full price. I do offer payment plans to help with budgeting. 

Do you offer discounts?

I am currently located in Kalamazoo, Michigan! Yes, it's a real place! Traveling? I AM SO THERE! If you are inquiring for an out of state or international wedding, elopement or couples session and wondering if I travel - the answer will always be a yes. 

Where are you located / do you travel? 

For my couples sessions I generally deliver a minimum of 50 high res edited jpeg files, for an 8 hour wedding at least 650 files and for a 4 hour elopement at least 400 files. I don't put a cap on a maximum. Every session and wedding is different. I promise I won't leave anything out (and if you think something was missed - just ask, I'm happy to look and make sure your gallery is perfect!) You'll get the best of what I captured. 

How many images are included?

I require a $750 non refundable retainer on any wedding and elopement packages, and $150 non refundable retainer on any couples session. The remaining payments can be broken up into a payment plan, but must be paid in full a week before your date. If you want to go the payment plan route, let's chat with what you are comfortable with!     

How does payment work / do you offer payment plans?

I require a $750 retainer and a signed contract to book your date, without both of those, the date is fair game for other couples.
