Got questions? I've got answers!

01

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SHOOTING FOR?

I received my double photography degree in 2015 and have been shooting ever since, focusing on portraits and fashion. Wedding photography came soon after in 2016. This means I’ve been photographing love stories for 5 years now. Can’t believe it’s already half a decade, time flies like crazy!

 

02

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SHOOTS?

Heck yeah!

My passport it up to date, I always have one suitcase half-packed so just say a word and I’ll be on my way! Whether it’s Europe or someplace else, I’ll gladly explore old or new grounds with you.

AIN’T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH!

 

03

HOW DO WE GO ABOUT TRAVEL COSTS?

Travel costs have to cover round trip flights, accommodation & transportation (if applicable). All travel fees are already  included in the packages so you won’t have to worry about any extra or hidden fees. I book my own travels, but you’ll receive the details before I finalize reservations so we’re on the same page.

 

04

WHAT GEAR DO YOU USE & DO YOU HAVE A BACKUP ONE?

Oh we’re talking sweet stuff! I’m mainly a Canon gal, and my wedding gear bag includes: 2 camera bodies, variety of lenses, speedlight, never-ending supply of batteries, cards + a backup equipment to make the magic happen.

My gear travels safely in a solid pelican case – the nightmare of all flight attendants so don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!

 

05

CAN I BRING MY PET TO THE SHOOT?

Is this even a question?!

PETS ARE AWESOME!

If you have 1, 2 or 5, and you can make it happen then, definitely bring them along! As a proud dog mama, I absolutely understand the need and importance of having a full family portrait.

And let’s be honest, these will be the cutest photos of all…

 

06

HOW FAST CAN WE SEE OUR PHOTOS?

I want you to enjoy your photos as soon as possible so I have a fast turn around time and make sure to deliver wedding images in up to 4 weeks & couple photos in up to 2 weeks.

 

07

HOW WILL THE IMAGES BE DELIVERED?

Your final, beautiful photos will be uploaded to a personalized, online gallery in high-resolution jpeg from where you can download them or send them to family and friends. The online gallery is available for 1 year.

 

08

CAN I RECEIVE RAW IMAGES?

Nope. RAW images are only work in progress and editing is where the second part of magic happens. I always carefully look through all the photos taken to make sure you won’t miss any moment from your day. YOU DESERVE THE BEST, and that’s why I care to deliver the images in the most beautiful way.

 

09

HOW MANY PHOTOS CAN WE EXPECT?

Every wedding & shoot is different so I don’t set an exact number of photos that get delivered. I always make sure to photograph the event throughly and with care so you can receive as many photos as possible of ever detail.  That being said, I deliver a minimum of 400 photos for a full wedding & 50 photos for a couple shoot.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE HAVE TO RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL?

If you need to reschedule, new deposit has to be made in order for me to save the new date (which is a subject to my availability). Travel expenses might be added. If you have to cancel, the deposit is non-refundable.

 

11

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT TO OUR WEDDING?

I have never ever missed a wedding! I always plan ahead and travel with a safe time margin. However, if some greater forces make me incapable of showing up to your wedding, I’ll definitely help in finding a substitute photographer. If I can’t show up to your wedding, your money will be refunded.

 

12

DO YOU SHOOT ANYTHING ELSE APART FROM WEDDINGS?

Yes, I derived from portraiture and fashion photography which I continue shooting today. I guess, this is were the editorial edge in my wedding photos are coming from.
