How far in advance do I need to book you for my wedding?

ASAP! As soon as you get engaged. If you love my work, then you will need to make sure I’m not already booked! I hate letting down couples and telling them I’m already booked for their big day. In the past I’ve even had a couple of awesome clients base their wedding date around my schedule! Book Now!

What happens if I need to reschedule because of weather or other unforeseen instances?

If it looks like it’s going to rain, it might be best to reschedule. If you are unable to reschedule, we may need to have a backup location that is indoors. However, if you’re not afraid to get a little wet, bring some cute rain boots and an adorable umbrella for some dreamy and romantic images in the rain. BUT if there is potential for severe weather, we will definitely need to reschedule as I do not want to risk my couples or myself! I hate Hurricane season y’all.

 

Are photos digital or print or both?

Photos will be delivered digitally, sent via online gallery and a USB for sessions, a USB for weddings. You may print everything on your own.

Could depend on how many clothing looks you want, but they usually can last between an hour and a half to two hours, maybe even three! Time tends to fly (because they are so fun). We end when I feel like we got a lot of ‘Greats’.
