Investment + FAQ
These are the good ole' days.
Invest in these moments!
Portrait sessions are for everyone! You just got engaged, your anniversary is coming up, or you just want an excuse to cuddle your sweetheart in a field of tall grass, surrounded by warm, gorgeous sunlight... Or you are in your senior year and will soon be graduating with a crazy bright future ahead of you and a smile that won't quit. Or you are a parent and need updated family photos that truly capture your beautiful family -- squeezing your babies, tickling their bellies, and loving on one another in a cozy outdoor space... Whatever you need, I'm your girl!

Where are you based and do you travel?
I am based in Middle TN, however, I LOVE traveling to new areas and locations, I'm totally game for driving to you! For weddings, I charge $0.75/mile outside of a 50 mile radius of my house. For portrait sessions, I charge $0.75/mile if the location is 30 miles away from my house. This price will be added to the total price.
When will we get our photos?
We definitely live in a world where we thrive on instant gratification, however, sometimes good things take time. I am school teacher as well, so it is my goal in 2022 to better serve my clients by not overbooking my calendar. Because I teach 8-3 during the school year, my editing hours are limited to late evening. In the busiest months (Aug-Nov), you will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within 4 weeks of your session date. During slower months, you will receive your photos sooner. If you need your photos by a certain date or for a certain purpose, please book your session with these turnaround dates in mind and always let me know beforehand so that I can meet your needs! :)
Do you plan my wedding timeline?
Absolutely! I love being by your side to help you before your big day. In the end, this is YOUR day, and you have the ultimate say. However, I'll send you a "bride guide" to help you organize your day, plan for the best moments, prepare for the best shots, and make the most of every moment! I send you a very detailed questionnaire weeks before your wedding, and then customize a photo timeline for the wedding day to help everything run as seamlessly as possible. On your wedding day, I want to capture the feelings, the mood, the emotions, and the calm and crazy moments that make your wedding unique. Don't worry, I got you, girl.
How many pictures will we receive?
This depends on a lot of things. Because I do not put an exact number limit on weddings or full sessions, it's hard to give an exact number. For both weddings and sessions, I edit and deliver every quality image! I would say on average, I deliver between 800-1000 images for an 8 hour wedding day, and I deliver around 120 photos for every 1 hour session.
Do you use a second photographer?
I love working with second photographers! I do have second photographers that I prefer to work with, but I don't guarantee a second photographer in my packages. It's very possible that these photographers are already booked for their own weddings, so when a bride expresses interest in hiring a second photographer, I ask my faves to see who is available to help me shoot. Not every bride desires to have an extra camera body there, so it does take the pressure off for me to find a second photographer for every wedding I book because to be honest, it's not always an easy thing to do! Second photographers are chosen and hired based on their wedding experience and the equipment they use. This price ranges from $20-35/hour.
How do I book you or reserve a date?
To book/reserve a date, just shoot me an email or a message on Facebook or Instagram. :) To book a wedding, I require 30% of the package price and to book a session, I require a $50 nonrefundable (but transferable) deposit.
Do you offer bridal sessions?
Yes! I love bridal sessions so much! If want to add a bridal session to your wedding package, I discount a full session price and you only pay $200. If you would rather have bridals made the day of the wedding, I reserve about 10 minutes for bridal photos during the bridesmaid photo portion of the day. The upside of bridal sessions is that you get some bomb photos of you in your very expensive gown. You're able to get some creative shots, take your time, and do a test run of your dress, hair, and makeup. The downside of not doing a bridal session is that you honestly don't have a lot of time on the wedding day to capture these shots.
What should I wear to my session?
Neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, neutrals neutrals, neutrals.
But seriously though, neutrals. You will never go wrong with white, cream, tan, brown, black, navy, or olive. Like, never ever.
For my editing style, avoid bold colors (red, bright blue, hot pink, green, and especially yellow!) Avoid busy patterns as well. Solid colors all the way!
Also, consider hats, jewelry, and shoes when planning your outfit.
If you book with me, you will receive a detailed style guide.
