When you look back on your photos, you should feel a sense of confidence, beauty, and sweet nostalgia. I care deeply about getting to know your story because you're more than just a pretty face.

Your photos should look timeless with bright, organic colors while it captures the purity of that joyous moment.

Life's special moments- big or small are worthy of documentation.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

I will send you an outfit guide to help! When in doubt, neutrals are almost always the way to go. Soft colors make for organic skin tones and they go with any background. Don't get me wrong, pops of color are great too! Especially for locations that already have many neutral tones. If you can't decide what to wear, I'd be more than happy to help you pick out the perfect outfit!

CAN YOU EDIT OUT MY (INSERT ITEM HERE)?


Two weeks after your shoot, you may ask me to re-touch your images if there's something you don't like. I will do my best to fulfill your wishes, but I can not make any guarantees. After those two weeks are up, I am unable to perform any re-edits and am not liable for keeping the RAW images. 

DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
 
Yes! My editing style is pure and organic... meaning I won't make you look like someone you're not. While shooting, I focus on bringing out the vibrant, light, and airy colors through my manual settings. I then use a film-inspired editing process to perfect those images in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. 

IS STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY AVAILABLE?

Yes! Ask me about studio options. I do most of my sessions outdoors because I love natural light but I now offer an indoor option! Perfect for newborn and boudoir photos. 

DO YOU SEND SNEAK PEAKS?

Only for weddings. Sneak peaks are more time consuming than one may think. I batch edit my images so they are all consistent. By not doing sneak peaks for every session, you'll receive all of your images faster. 

WHY SHOULD I DO A FIRST LOOK?

Wedding day first looks are so beautiful and intimate... It's a great way to capture amazing emotion-filled images without feeling rushed to get to your reception. A first look happens before the ceremony and is usually just the bride and the groom as they see each other for the first time on their wedding day. Not only do you receive great photos, but it's a great way to relieve any stress. 


WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?

If a personal event comes up, there are ways to reschedule. If you reschedule a month ahead, you may use your deposit towards the new session date. If you wish to reschedule in less than a month of the original date, then a new reservation deposit must be made and the original will not be refunded. In the event of severe weather, it is up to the photographer to decide if rescheduling is needed, and the original deposit can be used towards the new date.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?


You may cancel your appointment and all monies (If granted a payment plan) except for the reservation deposit will be refunded.

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?

For weddings, expect between 75-100 photos per hour. For family and senior sessions, photos range between 30-100+ photos depending on the collection. 

WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND THAT I PRINT THROUGH YOU?

Prints through places like Walmart and Walgreens lack natural colors and the over all quality is pretty low in comparison to the photos I receive through my printing lab in Minnesota. Trust me on this one, your photos will have more of a wow-factor when printed though me. 

WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD WE SCHEDULE THE SHOOT?

Two words- Golden Hour! This magical hour of sunlight happens twice a day- early morning and late afternoon. Of course, timing differs depending on the season but I'll know the time frame that the lighting will be perfect so you don't have to worry.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE LOCATIONS TO SHOOT?

I have LOTS of favorite locations. From dirt roads, cornfields, and trees to waterfalls, flowers, and elegant bridges- I know the perfect spot for you photo shoot. Some locations may require a mileage fee.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

Digital processing and editing may range between two to four weeks depending on the season. Your photos are batch edited, and you will receive them all at the same time.
