Where are you located?
I'm am in the Finger Lakes region of Western New York. But I am always up for travel - whether that means you coming my way, vice versa, or meeting somewhere in between :)
How does travel work?
Most photographers have set travel fees, I don’t.
All I ask is for you to cover the flight, transportation, and stay - and I’ve got the rest.
Obviously, those things can get a little pricey. If it works out better for you and your budget, I am absolutely open to staying with you, your family, sharing an Airbnb, etc. to help offset the cost. On that same note, being picked up and dropped off at the airport to save on a car rental is totally an option.
As for booking, I will book my flights and rental car. If you want to book my stay, that’s fine, but I always book my own flights and transportation. That said, I'll make sure to confirm pricing and logistics with you before booking anything to make sure you don’t have any “surprise” costs.
Once booked, the total payment is due within one week of receiving your invoice.
You can estimate costs by checking out hotels/airbnbs your area, how much roundtrip flights are from Rochester NY (ROC), and figuring in about $50 per day for a rental car.
How do payments work?
What's you turnaround time?
Turnaround time truly depends on the seasons schedule, and the time spent shooting your session or wedding. Generally, a session takes about 2 weeks, and weddings are finished in under 4 weeks. But I definitely try to get them back to you as soon as possible and typically post a "preview" within a week of the shoot.
Can I get RAW and unedited images?
Short answer: No.
Photography is my art, taking the photo is only half of the process – edits are where I bring my photos to life.
That said, I promise to always consider every image and include any and every image you'll want. If every you feel I missed a photo, just ask! I would be happy to check back through images and get any I may have accidently left out to you.
What should we wear?
Don't worry, I've got a guide!! I'll send it over as soon as we schedule your session :)
Do you photography families?
Intimate weddings and couples’ portraits are where [I feel] I thrive, so I typically limit family sessions to maternity and newborn (unless it’s for families or couples who I have previously worked with). Feel free to reach out with your ideas though, I can definitely help you out with recommendations.
How do payments work?
I require 30% retainer to secure your spot on my calendar, and the remaining 70% is due 3 months in advance for weddings, 1 month in advance for shoots.
These payments can be split (up to 3 payments) to help make it more affordable. I’m happy to help create a schedule that will work best for you :)
What if we have to cancel?
If it's weather related:
Variations make sessions unique! So, unless it’s so harsh that it would make for an awful or dangerous time, or ruin my equipment (which in that case we would definitely reschedule), we’re on still on.
If it's a conflict you have:
Once your deposit has been made, it is legally non-refundable and a new deposit will be required to hold your new date.
If it's on me:
This would only happen if something completely out of my control arose – illness, death, etc. But if this were the case, I would absolutely do my best to find a replacement photographer with a style similar to my own.
And of course, if I can’t make it and don’t have a replacement to send in my place, your money will be refunded.
Do you offer discounts?
Occasionally I offer seasonal or advanced booking packages, but other than that my price is firm.
