Frequently Asked Questions
1. Wear something that you love, not something you think you *should* wear. If you're not the type of person to wear a bright flowy dress or a suit jacket, ditch it for those birks you rock on the daily. Or those trousers and flats. Or that comfy skirt and simple button-down shirt. Wearing something that is totally you will make you feel comfortable and will put you at ease during your session.
2. Choose a location that you love. You might have loved seeing one of my engagement sessions in the New Mexican desert but what if you've never even been to the state with the best green chile? Finding a location that you and your partner have a special connection with will ensure that you feel even more comfortable during your session and will help you both have lots of fun. This doesn't mean you *can't* go to a new location you've never been to for your engagement session but finding one you relate to really helps. If you need help finding that special location, I'm always happy to offer a helping hand.
3. Timing is everything. If you're wanting those beautiful photographs with warm, golden light, planning your engagement shoot at noon on a Saturday will not be ideal. The Golden Hour for photos is within 1-2 hours of sunrise and sunset and planning your shoot around this time really does make a difference.
For weddings and elopements, proof galleries will be delivered within 20-30 days, if not sooner. Once your proof gallery is delivered, you can take all the time you need to make your selection of the images you want me to do the final edits on. The final edits can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks, depending on the season. I know you might be too excited to wait to share photos from your wedding day so I'm always happy to provide up to 15 images to you within the week! Just let me know which 15 you'd like and I'll send them right over to you.
In all seriousness, yes. I ensure that for every event or session I photograph, I am equipped with professional-grade equipment to help me achieve the best results for my clients. From using the correct flashes and soft boxes, to ensuring my lenses perform well in dim lighting, you can be sure that you'll be receiving images that are correctly exposed and beautifully edited.

Clients shall be entitled to accept or reject the substitute with the understanding that Clients will be responsible for the full fees and costs of the substitute photographer if they should choose to accept its services in lieu of Photographer’s. In the exclusive event of cancellation by Photographer, the Retainer Fee will be reapplied in one of two ways: (1) should the Photographer and Client agree upon a replacement photographer, the Retainer Fee shall transfer to replacement photographer, or (2) the Retainer Fee shall be refunded in its entirety to the Client.

Chris & Rebecca | Grand Canyon National Park Elopement Review
We were so pleasantly surprised that she didn't just have talent, but also was amazing to work with. I cannot express strongly enough how much we both absolutely LOVED working with her. From how incredibly calm, kind, and relaxing she is to speak with and work with to her organization and creativity.... I find myself getting lost in the pictures that she took of us and how effortlessly they captured the moments. I look at the photos and can remember how the moment felt, even now, months later. Thank you for capturing our day and encasing those memories for all eternity for us. It means the world to us.
