A photographer should be one of the first vendors you book once you've secured a date. I recommend contacting me 12-18 months before your wedding to guarantee my availability.

how far in advance do i need to book you for my wedding?

For sessions, 2-4 weeks. For weddings, 6-8 weeks. During peak wedding season, my turnaround rate may be a week or two longer based on my workload. But I will keep you informed and updated on the progress!

how long will it take to get our photos delivered?

A HUGE yes! First looks are perfect for the couple who may be more shy or private with their intimacy. You can do them in so many different ways as well so it feels personal to you! This also means you can get all your photos (aside from family portraits) done before your ceremony.

Do you recommend a "first look" on the wedding day?

I recommend setting aside 7 hours minimum for your wedding day. Remember that weddings can be unpredictable and things like the weather, running behind, or miscommunication can set back your timeline. 

how many hours should we set aside for wedding photos?

Of course! Micro-weddings are on the rise, and so I've modified my elopement pricing to fit any and all micro-weddings. They can range anywhere from $500 - $1000. Just let me know in the contact form how many hours you'll need me and we'll go from there!

do you offer micro-wedding packages?

Absolutely! I believe every couple should be able to afford photography for their wedding day. Those memories are one in a million. I have several options available and am very flexible. Just ask!

Do you offer payment plans for your packages?

I am based in Springfield, TN - which is roughly 30 minutes north of Nashville. I absolutely love to give my family amazing experiences, so that's why I love to travel for work!

I know you travel, but where is your home base?

The simple answer is no. While I understand wanting every photo may be important to you, I handpick and hand-edit every image in your gallery. After years of culling through images, I have learned that multiples of the same shot aren't interesting to look at. 

Do you deliver every image from our shoot?
