Where are you located?
I am located in Canyon Lake, TX. In the heart of the Texas Hill Country between Austin and San Antonio.
For portraits I mainly serve my immediate area, but if you are outside of the Austin/San Antonio area please contact me and we can work out a plan. I love doing shoots at the beach and in other cities!
Do you shoot destination weddings?
I have a bucket list of destinations - Contact Me! I love traveling!
How do you shoot weddings?
I love to be involved in the lead up to your wedding, from timeline help to suggestions on locations. We'll chat about different options and make sure that I know all the key people on the day so I know who to focus on. And it's really exciting for me to receive photos of your dress, shoes etc prior to the day so I can plan for the best angles that will make your photos exceptional! On your actual wedding day, I am like an extended part of your wedding party! I will be with you from start to finish, making sure I document and capture all the key parts to your day; capturing the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and the craziness and all the details that make your wedding unique.
Will there be a second shooter?
The Ultimate wedding package includes an associate photographer. The elegant and Intimate packages do not include them but they can be added. An associate photographer is someone I trust to be able to completely take over the day if needed. We travel separately, just in case.. you never know what may happen and you have to be prepared. Assistant/apprentice photographers may also be hired for extra help depending on how large your wedding is.
How do I book a wedding or portrait session?
The first step is completing the form on my contact page. For a portrait session we will discuss your needs through email or over the phone and when we decide on the date/time, a $100 retainer is required to hold the appointment and final payment is due on the day of the session. For weddings, I always like to meet you before you book to make sure that we are a good fit. Once we have met, your date is locked in once I received a signed contract + a $500 retainer fee. Your final payment will be due 2 weeks prior to your wedding date.
How long is the typical wait for our photos?
For portrait sessions your proof gallery is typically available to view within 72 hours but it could be up to a week in busy season. From there you may select your images that are to be edited and delivered. I typically take 1-2 weeks to deliver your finished images.
For weddings You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within a maximum of 8 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season). You can download all the watermark free photos from the gallery, share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints!
Do I have to order prints through you?
No, but I do have a variety of options if you choose to.
Do you have a cancellation policy?
In order to reserve an appointment for a typical portrait session, you must pay a non-refundable retainer. For portrait sessions the fee is $100.00.
In the event you need to re-schedule your portrait session you may do so at least 24 hours before your scheduled time. The fee will then be placed on another date that works for both of our schedules. I understand the children get sick often and I am willing to be lenient with this.
If you need to cancel your portrait session entirely you will forfeit your retainer.
It is my decision if the weather is not good for portraits. If I want to reschedule because of weather your session will moved to another date that works for both of our schedules.
If I am sick or otherwise unable perform the portrait session I will reschedule your session to another date that works for both of our schedules or you can opt to have your retainer returned to you.
If you are interested in my wedding policy I will discuss all the terms with you at your consultation.
What payment options do you accept?
I take payments with paypal, cash or check.
Weddings and portraits have available payment plans if needed. Ask me for details!
Session fees are based on my time and talent + number of images/ products you receive. Any of the portrait packages (unless noted) may be used for family, maternity, seniors, engagements, bridals, in home lifestyle family, lifestyle or outdoor newborn, or in hospital newborn (fresh 48) sessions.
