What kind of equipment do you use?
I’m a Nikon girl. I primarily shoot with the Nikon D800 and Nikon D7000 and have a variety of the best Nikon Prime lenses .
Do you bring back-up equipment?
Do you have any formal training?
I have always been passionate about taking photos. I obtained the majority of my ‘professional’ experience working at Lifetouch School Portrait Studios as the ‘picture day lady.’ Since then, I have built my professional portfolio and have over 300 portrait sessions under my belt as well as 100 weddings in just 8 years time.
How would you describe your style?
Fresh, candid, fun, REAL.
Do you always work with a second photographer?
Not usually. For smaller weddings, I prefer to work alone with the occasional assistant. For larger weddings, I bring along my husband as a second photographer for an additional cost.
Do you shoot in black & white or color?
I always shoot in color, however your final DVD will have photos in both black and white and color.
“I’m not comfortable in front of a camera, how will you make me relax?”
I love to get you laughing. I think laughter and being silly is the best way to get the ‘never been in front of a professional camera’ jitters out. Now, I don’t expect you to instantly start jumping around and being silly, that’s actually what I do!
Do you ever double book a day?
No! I occasionally will book 2 wedding in a weekend, but only in very busy wedding months.
How many weddings do you photograph per year?
On average, I photograph 15 weddings a year.
How long does it take to get the photos?
For portrait sessions, no longer than 2 weeks. For weddings, no longer than 10 weeks.
How many photos can we expect?
It depends on the amount of coverage, however I normally deliver around 70 images per hour.
Do I get a copy of the photos?
Yes, all wedding packages and portrait sessions include a USB of high-resolution photos in jpeg format with print release form for personal printing, along with a gallery for convenient professional print ordering.
How will I share them with my family and friends?
You will receive your own wedding gallery website that is for sharing and family/friend printing purposes. The company is a high quality professional company and the rates will be higher than a ”do it yourself’ printer. This website takes into account the photographer copyright as well as the high quality print price. The site also saves your images to a cloud storage for 10 years!!
Where are you based? Why do you travel so much? What is the farthest you’ll travel?
I currently live in Winchester, NH and travel 90 % of the time. I frequently travel to Wilmington, NC, Burlington, VT and Atlanta, GA and do not charge for travel when a shoot is arranged during one of my trips. I am available to travel to any other destination that you would like. Travel fees apply for distances further than 100 miles.
How do we book you?
I require a signed contract and 1/3 of your contracted amount at the time of booking, which will go toward your overall payment. For Portrait Sessions, I require $50 time slot hold when shooting mini-sessions. All other portrait sessions are paid in full on the session date.
What kind of payment do you accept?
I currently except Personal Check, Cash, and Venmo. ( Card payments are accepted as well).
