FAQ

QUESTION

ANSWER

HOW DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL FEES?

Travel in and 100 miles from Reno, Nevada is free and I create custom wedding packages where travel is included so you don't get any surprise fees when I have to fly somewhere or book airbnbs. I'm not high maintenance and am totally willing to crash at the sweet little cabin you have booked in the Tetons or that airbnb in Italy. Heck, let's grab coffee in the morning or spend late nights by the fireplace alongside the adventures while we travel!

QUESTION

ANSWER

SHOULD I ADD ON A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?

When we're out hiking or walking through national parks having a second shooter is a great opportunity to get epic far out photos while I'm with you guys getting those little moments. Or if you're wanting two moments captured at once on your wedding day, having a second shooter is a great idea. Two sets of feet on the ground often captures totally different views that can really bring out the experience, and I have a handful of people I trust and vibe super well with that I know you'd love! Ultimately, if you're unsure if you should add on a second shooter, I can help you decide if I think you'll need one or not.

QUESTION

ANSWER

how many images will we receive?

I promise 50 images per hour! I'll always deliver all the images that aren't blurry, a duplicate, or unnecessary to send (don't a great photo + doesn't capture the story).

Couples sessions -- 100-150+ images
Adventure sessions -- 200+ images
Weddings and elopement totally depend on how much coverage you book with me, and how long I'll be shooting. From an 8 hour wedding day, I guarantee 800+ images, but usually deliver 1000+.

HELPPPP! I'M AWKWARD AF IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA!

YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE BABE!!! Don't even sweat.

I'm empathic and such a people person and spend hours getting to know you guys + your relationship so I know how to capture you best! I'll prep you before and make sure we all know each other before even shooting so you guys are more comfortable off the bat. During the shoot-- I'll guide you into natural movements and provide prompts to get the best photos that represent YOU TWO + your story. You're totally gonna rock it-- promise!!

QUESTION

ANSWER

Do you backup your work? how do you ensure you won't lose my images?

I'm kinda a crazy person when it comes to this haha. I shoot on two different cameras which hold two cards, so when I shoot your wedding I'll be backing up your images as I'm shooting. If one of those cards in my camera corrupts, I still have the other card that has all of your images on them. Also-- I change out and buy new cards every year. When I order new ones, I date the back so I know when to toss them out because I don't want to risk the chance of it corrupting. I also back up all the images to 4 other locations-- 3 different hard drives (2 that I travel with that are duplicate copies, and one 6-TB that I keep at home), and a cloud storage system online. So even if my house burns down you will still have your images hahah. At the end of the day, your photos will be on 2 different cards that I shot them on, 3 hard drives, and a cloud storage system -- 6 different locations. That way if one of them fail, I have another way of saving them. I've never had something like this happen, but if it does-- I'll be ready. *knocks on wood* hahah.

Sound like we'd be a good fit?
