Sessions are done about 1.5 hours before sunset on weekdays because my weekends are spent photographing beautiful weddings! Sunset provides the most beautiful light for sessions - Trust me, you’ll love it! Throughout the year, the timing of golden hour changes so we’ll plan for that when scheduling your session! In the summer, sunset is around 9pm and in the Winter, sunset can be as early as 4:30pm.
I photograph couples, engagements, family, kids, maternity, and in-home newborns
No, I do not deliver every photo I take. My job as your photographer is to deliver all of the best images. I discard duplicates, blurry, and low quality images from your session. However, I do edit and deliver the remaining photographs from your time with me. Every session and wedding is unique but the average amount of photographs delivered for a session are 30-100 photographs and the average amount of from a wedding are 400-1200 photographs.
Engagement sessions are included in every wedding package. Engagement sessions are a great way for us to get to know each other and for you both to practice how I will be posing you both on your wedding day. Think of your engagement session as practice - by the time your engagement session is over, you both will be pros and ready to tackle those wedding day photos. Having your engagement session also allows us to get through those wedding portraits faster, which means more time for mingling and dancing!
I will preface this answer with, I want my couples to do whatever makes them happy and I will never force my couples to have a first look. I think first looks are so special. First looks are great not only for allowing for a more relaxed timeline but for both the bride and groom to share some alone time together on their wedding day. Weddings are fast paced with little room for alone time for the bride and groom.. During a private first look, you are able to talk, laugh, hug, and kiss each other. Whereas during a traditional first look, you'll have to wait until the end to hug on each other. If you are still on the fence about a first look, let's chat and see what is the best option for you!
Yes! I love helping my couples plan their wedding timeline. This helps alleviate some stress for my couples but also ensures that I have enough time to photograph those special moments during your wedding
