frequently asked questions

Where are you based out of?

I am officially based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba (the beautiful prairies with the never-ending sky!). I am however, looking to build my portfolio in terms of unique locations, and am willing to travel!

What do we need to book a wedding date?

I would require a signed contract as well as a 30% deposit.

I’m not super duper comfortable in front of the camera and I’m worried the photos will look awkward because of it.

I totally get it, it’s a little scary at first (coming from someone who is really not used to being in front of the camera!). Let me let you in on a secret though, half of the time you won’t even realize that you’re posing. You will walk, talk, dance (nothing complicated I promise, I love to dance so I’ll be there right with you dancing my heart out!), jump, laugh, whisper in each other’s ear…If anything it will seem like a “no-losers” game of Simon says, and we’ll all be winners because not only will we have created beautiful photos together, we will have had a great time doing so!

How long do we have to wait to get our photos?

If your session was a portrait session, I usually deliver the photos within 1-2 weeks (With sneak peeks a day or so later…no one likes waiting!). 

For weddings it will usually take 4-6 weeks (sneak peeks usually arrive within a week!).

How will the photos be delivered?

Regular portrait, engagement, or boudoir sessions will be shared in a private, password protected, downloadable gallery. 

Weddings will be shared in an online downloadable gallery as well, with some of the highlights shared on a custom USB. 

What if it’s pouring on our wedding day?

Although a little rain never hurt anyone, and we will surely attempt to take photos if you feel comfortable, I am happy to offer a rainy guarantee with my packages.  This means that if you wanted, you’ll have another chance to dress up in your stunning attire and take beautiful pictures on a nicer day!

Do you edit all of the photos?

Some photos are full of blinking eyes and half open mouths, so the answer is no!

Do not fret however, the outtakes are truly the outtakes! You wouldn’t miss them at all.

Can we have a second photographer?

Yes, of course! 2nd photographers are awesome for capturing both the bride and groom at separate locations up until the ceremony!

I offer both half day and full day options with my fellow talented photographer friends!

How many photos will we receive?

It varies on the wedding.  I do not like to give a strict number of photos because I like to deliver as many photos as possible! For a regular portrait session though you can expect a minimum of 50 photos and a wedding a minimum (big emphasis on the minimum!) of 300.

Would you be able to share the raw, unedited files with us?

Nope! Asking a photographer to share the raw files with a client is similar to asking your caterer to deliver a plate of ingredients! I put a lot of work into choosing and adjusting the images to make them as lovely as possible. I hope you understand!  

Should we choose to not have an engagement session, can you take that amount off of your pricing?

Unfortunately there is no price adjustment for those who prefer not to have an engagement session. I strongly encourage you to have one though! They are an amazing opportunity to get used to being in front of the camera, feeling out my style, us getting to know each other and on top of that…You get awesome, more casual photos of yourselves that can be used for save the dates, your guest book, your slideshow,  or as a lovely testimony of your love in your home!!
It’s a win-win situation, trust me! 🙂
