Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How far in advance should we book you for our wedding?

My calendar fills up quickly so you should plan to book about 9-12 months in advance.  If you are planning on a shorter timeframe, just email me to check availability!

Have you shot at our location before?

If you are getting married in Snohomish County, King County, or Chelan, chances are that I have come across your venue in the past 13 years.  However, I LOVE shooting at new venues and seeing a location with fresh eyes is very valuable as well!  I travel quite frequently for weddings so even if I have not been to your location before, I feel confident that I would do an excellent job capturing it.  I would also be happy to visit your location with you prior to the wedding day, or if your wedding is out of town, I will arrive early the day before or day of to scout it to make sure I know where the best spots to shoot are!

How many photographers do you bring to a wedding?

I always bring at least one other photograph to photograph the entire day with me so that nothing gets missed!  I always ensure that I am well-staffed to make sure that your wedding is captured impeccably and that nothing is missed.

Do you do video too?

No, I provide photography only.  I prefer to do the absolute best job and provide the absolute highest quality of work for you, and there is no way that I could do that if I were trying to do two things at the same time.  I am solely focused at your wedding on capturing beautiful photos that you will preserve in your album and frame on your walls.  I would be more than happy to give you referrals of excellent videographers who share a similar mindset.

I really want you to stay until the end of my wedding. Will you?

Of course!  My packages include capturing your day from the end of your hair/makeup through the last major event of the reception.  Additional coverage is always available no matter how much more you would like covered.

What are your prices and packages?

I would love to discuss rates with you!  The best way to view at my pricing is by clicking on the contact me button and emailing me some details about your plans!  If I am available on your date, I would be more than happy to email you my rates for your location, as well as chat about putting together a custom package that suits exactly what your wedding requires.

How long will it take to see my photos?

Engagement and family photos will be available for online viewing approximately three weeks after the shoot.  Weddings normally take 4-6 weeks.

Do you retain the copyright for the photos?

Yes, as your professional wedding photographer, I will retain copyright of all your wedding images, however I always provide an official copyright release for you allowing unlimited personal use and printing of your wedding photos.
