FAQ

What is your style?

I take a photojournalist style approach. I prefer to capture events as they unfold. While I may stage or pose my clients to help create a photographable moment, the goal is that the moment will become a genuine interaction.

What is a first look?

30You and your partner see each other before the ceremony in your gown or suit for the first time on your wedding day. This gives us the time and space to get the shots you want of you together without worrying about rushing to cut the cake or light the sparklers. It’s optional, but it saves time later. It is also a wonderful moment for you both to enjoy before all the crazy begins!

How long have you been shooting?

I officially began my business in 2016. I have taken a college course on the fundamentals of photography and continue to invest in training and to take opportunities to learn from my peers. Over the last 3 years I worked on dozens of weddings and learned something from every one!

Do you reoutch photos?

We try to capture you as you are at this time in your life. Aside from basic cropping and color correcting, we do not heavily retouch photos.

When and how do I receive my photos?

It takes two to three weeks to go through all the images captured on the day. You’ll receive all the high resolution images via a downloadable online gallery from which you may post or print as you see fit.

We have no idea how to dress or what to do!

If you are afraid that your shoot will not be successful because outfit planning and posing are just not your thing, don’t worry! I have got you covered! There will be suggestions on where you can purchase your outfits and what might look good for your shoot. Before we get the day of the shoot I will be sharing with you a mood board to give you an idea of what my goals are for the shoot. When we arrive I will help you with setting poses and then moving fluidly through them to get some genuine interaction. Your photoshoot does not have to be boring and stiff! It is my goal to keep it fun and moving and to make it a great memory for you all!

What equipment do you use?

I use all Canon equipment for shooting. Currently the equipment that I am using includes:

  • Mark III – Camera Body
  • 24-70mm 2.8 Lens
  • 70-200 2.8 Lens
  • 50mm 1.1 Lens
  • 85mm 1.8 Lens
  • 100mm 2.8 Lens
  • Three flash units
  • Flash accessories
  • MacBook Computer for editing

Can you work with my budget?

30If you are a big fan of my photos but afraid of the financial burden, please let me know! I understand completely how difficult it is managing the expense of professional photography. Let me know what your budget is and then we can try to work out how to best serve you and your budgetary needs.

Military clients do receive a 10% discount. I also will hold giveaways to give back to the community at different times during the year! Follow my instagram feed, facebook page and subscribe to my emails for updates on this!

Do you travel?

I love traveling and shooting in different environments! Whether it is to a city, mountains, or different beaches from our own, I would be more than happy to work with you guys capturing your day. There will be an additional cost to accommodate the expense of staying nearby (if the location is 4 hours or more from Beaufort) as well as the cost of travel.
