FAQ

 

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?

Yes!  Traveling is my favorite!  Since my home base is in Wilmington, I shoot a lot of weddings throughout North + South Carolina!  I do not charge a travel fee for weddings within a 150 mile radius of Wilmington, NC. I do include a one-night hotel stipend ($150) in your total contract amount for out of town weddings.  

WHAT IS A “DAY-OF TIMELINE?”

Day-of photography timelines are documents that I create for each of my brides!  Since the timeline is so detailed, it is usually created around 2-4 weeks prior to your wedding.  This gives accountability for myself, your family, and your wedding party so that everyone is where they need to be on the day-of.  This ensures that we capture all of the moments you want during your day!

HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?

All of my packages receive photos delivered through an online-viewing gallery service.  This allows you access to all of your wedding images at the click of a button! With this gallery you can download photos to your phone or computer and share them with all of your people through a quick and easy process.  Couples who choose Package 1 receive a personalized flash drive that contains all of their wedding photos in addition to the viewing gallery.

WHAT IS THE PAYMENT SCHEDULE + WHAT ARE THE PREFERRED METHODS OF PAYMENT?

I require 50% of the total contract amount at the time of signing.  The remaining 50% is due one month before the ceremony date. As for payments, I accept cash, check, Venmo, PayPal, Cash App, or debit/credit card.

HOW DO YOU ENSURE THAT MY PHOTOS ARE NOT LOST?

I back up my memory cards 3-4 times throughout a wedding day.  Upon leaving your wedding, I back up your photos digitally in two more locations so that they are safe and secure.  Although I’ve never experienced it, each photographer runs a microscopic risk of a memory card malfunctioning, but I take extra precautions to minimize any unlikely potential loss.  

I DON’T NEED ENGAGEMENTS/BRIDALS, BUT I WOULD LIKE A SECOND SHOOTER AT MY WEDDING. CAN I ADD THAT TO PACKAGE 3?

Absolutely!  If you just need day-of coverage but would like to add a second shooter, you can do so for an additional $300.  

WHAT IS A “DAY-OF SNEAK PEEK GALLERY?”

For couples who choose Package 1, I provide a gallery of preview photos (30-50 images) from your wedding day.  I edit + deliver your online gallery within 24 hours of your ceremony, which allows you to relish in the joy of your day just hours after it has happened!  Not only can you enjoy reliving it, but you are able to post and share those moments with friends and family so soon after you’ve tied the knot!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS?

In my busiest seasons, the maximum amount of turnover time is 8 weeks.  However, most weddings I have photos delivered between 4-6 weeks!
