What do I wear?!
There’s a big divide with photographers giving the digital files to their clients for a fee or for free. I’ll tell you right now, I do both. You get all the photos as web-sized resolution files because let’s face it, you’re going to put them on Facebook, Instagram, etc. and you should because your pictures are wonderful and I want you to share them with the world!
Now of course is when you ask, “Well what about when I want to print them? Don’t I need a larger file for good quality?” Yes, you do. And this is where I modify the game. See, there’s a HUGE difference between a Costco/CVS/Walgreens print and a professional photo lab print. Does the professional one cost more? Absolutely and it’s freaking worth it. The difference is not just visual, but palpable. I only work with the best labs for albums and prints because my Clients deserve nothing less.

What should I expect to spend?
My wedding packages range from $2,600 to $4,000 with most couples spending around $3,000.
My portrait sessions start at $300 and most clients spend closer to $400.
How do I get my images?
After a session you get all the edited images! Each session is placed on a personal, online gallery where you can download your images. They're available at a resolution that's great for social media and prints smaller than a 5x7. Larger prints, say 8x12 up to a 16x24 can be ordered through the same online gallery. Prints are available as canvas, metal, or traditional lustre paper types.
How does editing work?
Every single image receives global editing AKA overall exposure, contrast, color, etc. I don't edit every single image on a pixel level because then you'd never get your images! It takes a long time to perform that level of editing.
I do however, further edit any photo you have me print at a scale larger than an 8x12" because that's when you'll notice that stray water bottle or zit. At smaller print sizes, those "eye-sores" are so minuscule that no one will notice, so they don't require such intense editing.
How do wedding packages work?
I offer three levels of wedding packages, each with various included items and hours of coverage. I know that pre-set packages don't always fit exactly what my couples are looking for, so I offer the ability to completely customize existing packages or start from the ground up with a la carte pricing. I want to make sure my couples get exactly what they need for their big day.
