Frequently asked Questions
What type of sessions do you photograph?
I specialize in wedding photography, but also love photographing maternity sessions, newborns, anniversaries and young families.
Do you photograph proposals?
Yes! I love photographing wedding proposals! Please contact me for more information.
When should we book wedding day coverage or a portrait session?
Weddings: It’s best to contact me as soon as you’ve secured your wedding date and venue. The most popular months for weddings in the south are April, June, October and November.
Portraits: I recommend reaching out around two months before your desired session date. My schedule tends to book a month or more in advance, especially during wedding season.
What time of day do you photograph sessions?
I am a natural light photographer. The ideal time of day for portrait sessions is just after sunrise or about two hours before sunset. These times of day provide the best natural light. We will discuss the best options for your session during the booking process.
Where are you located and will you travel?
I am located in Carrollton, Georgia (about 45 minutes west of Atlanta). I am always ready and willing to travel for your wedding or portrait session. Please note that travel fees may apply. This is something we can discuss during the booking process.
What should I wear?
Outfit choices should reflect your personal style. Keep in mind that outfits should coordinate without looking too matched (i.e., wearing identical button-up shirts and jeans). I am more than happy to send over personalized outfit suggestions during the booking process.
As a general rule, avoid wearing lots of busy patterns or clothing with large distracting logos – soft colors and layered outfits are always a personal favorite of mine.
Are all the images we receive ‘retouched?’
All of the images I deliver will receive my standard level of retouching and color-correction adjustments. I do not do heavy Photoshop work because I believe authentic is beautiful, but I will use it where necessary. The best way to get familar with my photography and editing style is viewing my blog and social pages.
Why do you include an engagement session with wedding coverage? Can we exchange it out for another service?
I love engagement sessions and cherish the time we spend together before your wedding day. This session gives us the opportunity meet in person if we haven’t already, gets you comfortable in front of my camera, and lets me see how you interact as a couple. These sessions are fun, and I love having the chance to get to build a relationship with you! We spend so much of your wedding day together, it’s important to build a level of comfort with each other. The better I get to know you, the better I can document what’s important to you on your wedding day and provide you with natural, authentic images. This is so important to me and the heart behind my business, that it is studio policy to not switch out the included complimentary engagement session for another service. I don’t require you to use the engagement session, but I do highly recommend it.
