I accept payment through cash, check, and/or paypal.
An engagement session is approximately an 1-2 hour mini vacation that you and the love of your life take with a photographer. Visit a new spot or reminisce a sentimental location the two of you have shared.
Some locations are complimentary in travel while other locations may have applicable fees.
You will receive anywhere from 75-125 portraits.
I kindly ask for two weeks to deliver your images.
There is a 30% nonrefundable retainer (i.e. deposit) that is required to ensure that your booking is secure for your event and date. I only book one event per day to ensure that all of my attention is on you and your special day, alone. The remaining balance is due 14 days prior to your wedding date.
I am able to travel nationwide. Johnson City, TN and Charlotte, NC’s travel fees are waived and complimentary. Surrounding areas and nationwide travel may have applicable fees, but a quote will be given as soon as your venue’s location has been determined.
The amount of photos you receive will depend on both the length of coverage and the timeline of your event. Weddings that last 2-3 hours can expect anywhere from 150-300 photos; 4-6 hours anywhere from 300-500; 7-9 hours anywhere from 500-700; and 10-11 hours anywhere from 700-1000. Of course, my goal is to give you as many as possible, but I do refrain from sending 5 copies of the ‘same photo’ (I’ll pick the best one with the biggest, happiest smiles).
The best way to receive more images would be sure that you plan a timeline and schedule time for photos within it. Think of it this way, if everyone is standing around trying to figure out what to do, it causes a delay in the capture time. Whether you choose to have a cocktail hour or a first look, scheduling timing so that everyone knows what the plan is, is important. Winging it will not necessarily increase the photo count as you may loose time trying to figure out what comes next in the order of events. I highly recommend and timeline and will be more than happy to provide you with a general template to work off of if needed.
I kindly ask for four weeks to deliver your images; expedited delivery is available.
