FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
how many images will i receive?
For weddings, I typically deliver 75 photos for each hour that I am there. This is not a guarantee, and the number of final images will depend on the timeline and other factors. For portrait sessions, I deliver 30+ high-resolution images via your gallery.
How soon will I get my pictures?
For weddings, I tell couples to be on the look out within 3-4 weeks of their wedding day. This allows me to go through, pick the best images, edit each one, and retouch the bride and groom portraits. For portrait sessions, including engagement sessions, please allow 2 weeks to receive your final gallery.
what rights do i have to the images?
You have full printing rights! I will email you a print release when I send your gallery that allows you to print photos wherever you want. I recomend Mpix.com, a cheap alternative that still produces high quality images.
can i order images through you?
Absolutely! I have partnered with several professional photography labs to create high quality, archival products that last a lifetime. Please let me know what you have in mind, and I will make it happen.
Do I need a permit for my engagement location?
Most locations in and around D.C. do require a permit, whereas most other locations do not. If you are unsure about your location, please let me know and I will look into it for you. A list of many sites that do require permits can be found here. If your location does require a permit, I will be responsible for the paperwork, but you will be responsible for the payment. Permit payment fees are due one week before your scheduled engagement session.
What happens if it is raining on my scheduled portrait or engagement sessions date?
No worries! We will reschedule at a time that is most convenient for you. For a list of available dates and times, please use the link here to view my calendar.
Is there a travel fee for my wedding location?
Any wedding that is more than 2 hours by car from Staunton, VA will incur a travel fee of $150 for gas and hotel costs. If a location is more than four hours away, additional travel fees will occur. Some locations will have discounted travel fees, as I am dying to photograph a wedding there! Current bucket list of locations: Joshua Tree NP, Yosemite NP, the Pacific Northwest, Greece, Italy, and Spain.
Is there a travel fee for my portrait location?
If your desired portrait location is more than 45 miles from Staunton, Virginia, there will be a nominal fee to cover travel costs. If a location you suggest is outside my radius of travel, I will be sure to let you know and suggest other options for you to consider. Here is a link to some of my favorite local spots (blog post coming soon).
