Planning Your Event
We like to provide our clients a hands-on experience. Investing in professional photography can be overwhelming and we want to make sure this is an amazing experience for you.
Once you are booked we will then schedule a planning consultation to go over all the details. I will have you fill out a form that will give me a playbook of what you envision for your event including special group portraits you want to make sure to capture during the day.
Most clients like to have fresh portraits displayed at their event. I’m happy to discuss adding a portrait session prior to your event. We generally need about a month from the session to the event to make sure your displays arrive in time.

How do we book you?
After you have reviewed our full pricing and we have chatted about a date we will send you our studio contract to sign and pay for your package. Once we receive both the contract and booking fee you are locked in for that date/time/location.
We require full payment at booking if the event is less than three months out. If more than three months a 50% deposit is required with the reminder due one month before the event.
Are Digital Files Included?
All the best images from your event will be lightly retouched and delivered via download. This generally ends up to be around 50 images an hour.
Can you hold the date while I check....?
Short answer is no, not because we don’t want to but really to be fair we have to work off a first come first serve basis. Certain times of the year like fall we receive multiple inquiries a day and some are more motivated than others or are just looking for information. If life gets in the way, as it does sometimes, just contact us to make sure your desired date is still available if not, we will find something else that will work.
How much time do I need?
I generally arrive 30 minutes prior to your event, unless we plan on doing portraits beforehand.
For how long you need me really depends on what you want covered. My weekend base package starts at 3 hours and you can add as many as you need from there at an hourly rate. I would like to chat with you on the phone the week of the event just to make sure we are on the same page and work out a ‘must have’ shot list.
My coverage is continuous. This means it includes traveling between event venues and the clock starts as soon as I arrive at our scheduled time.
How many photos will I receive?
You will receive all the best images from your event. This means I take out the blinks, test shots and anyone looking super awkward. This number generally works out to about 50 images per hour booked.
To many can be overwhelming so as part of my professional service, I hand off a well curated story of your event. Images are delivered via dropbox and you are provided a gallery and a blog post to share with family and friends.
When will I receive my images?
I try really hard to get a small handful of images to you within a few days of your event. For the remainder of the images I generally take about three weeks for curating, editing and delivery of final bunch. If you need them sooner we do offer a rush fee. Just let me know.
What kind of safety and Backups do you have?
I photograph every event with two cameras, each of those cameras write the image data to two seperate cards. Immediately after the event the images are backed up to two different hard drives and the cards are stored in our fire safe until the final images are backed up on our cloud archive and delivered to you.
Can I see or purchase "the rest" of the photos?
Are you open to bartering or offer discounts?
We love bartering! We generally do an even exchange for the dollar amount. Make us an offer. We are currently looking for carpenters for some building projects and would love to chat.
Past wedding clients, public school teachers, COVID19 health workers, and first responders. Please inquire about our discount.
Cancellations & Rescheduling
All fees are non-refundable retainers to hold your date/time, however, we do give our clients up to one year to use the fee as a credit to the studio.
WHAT IF WE OR YOU ARE SICK???
We take health and safety very very seriously. Also, no one, especially kids looks good when they don’t feel good. Please let us know and we will work with you to reschedule.
I will absolutely let you know if anyone in my family has been sick in the last 24 hours so as to not infect your family and pull from my vast network of talented photography networks to find you a replacement.
We expect the same courtesy as we do work with humans with compromised immune systems.
