frequently asked questions

here are my most

hopefully they help, but let me know if you have any more!

WHERE ARE YOU BASED OUT OF?
I currently live in Dallas, Texas with my husband and our dog! If you're not located in Texas, but want me to photograph you, I have great news - Just read the answer to the question below :)

DO YOU TRAVEL?
YES! (All caps of course because I love to travel) If you're located outside of the Lone Star State and need a photographer to capture your dream shoot, I'm definitely your girl. I've actually been flying since I was just five weeks old. Yes, you read that right ;) I've lived in Texas most of my life, but also spent some time living in Washington, Colorado, and Oklahoma. I've photographed beautiful people in all of those places as well as California, Utah, Oregon, Hawaii, Illinois, Ohio, New York, Florida, Georgia, Haiti, Europe, and Mexico. Whether your dream shoot is in the mountains, sand dunes, desert or even on the beach, we can make it happen! All I need is a flight, rental car & room to stay so we can create some serious photo magic.

DO YOU SHOOT WEDDINGS/ELOPEMENTS?
Yes!! My photography is documentary style on the day-of and I photograph as many moments as I can as they happen naturally (besides bride & groom photos - I'll direct you on those, don't worry!) Wedding day coverage begins at $2900 +tax and elopements begin at $1900 +tax.

SHOULD I ADD A SECOND SHOOTER TO OUR WEDDING PACKAGE?
1,000,000% yes. Having two photographers helps me to be in two places at once and really helps your day to be captured in the fullest way possible. I do my absolute best to photograph everything, but 9 out of 10 times the schedule runs behind on the day of. It's incredible [and crucial] to have a second shooter to help when the timeline is tight. I've never had someone regret adding one on!

DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?
Of COURSE! I shoot with two cameras, multiple lenses, and flashes. I have plenty of extra memory cards and batteries as well.

HOW MUCH DOES A SESSION COST?
Pricing details are listed under the "Pricing" tab at the top of this page.

CAN I BUY PRINTS, CANVASES & ALBUMS THROUGH YOU?
Yesssss, I'll handle all of your printing needs! There honestly isn't anything like holding physical photos in your hands, seeing them on your walls, or placing them into frames around your house. I recommend that all of my clients print their images - just let me know if you want to see my separate pricing list and I'll send it your way. The files included in your gallery are sized for digital sharing only. I use an exclusive, photographer-only professional printing company to print images from your session to ensure that the quality and coloring are the absolute best. (I've tried printing at places like CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, etc. and have found that the color and quality of the images is severely degraded, muddied colors, desaturated... the list goes on. Trust me on this one and let me print your beautiful photos!)

I'M PRETTY AWKWARD/SHY IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA - CAN YOU STILL TAKE PHOTOS OF ME?
I deffffinitely understand not being comfortable in front of the camera (I'm part extrovert and part introvert after all) and it's literally my job to make you feel at ease so that your personality can shine through your photos! I'm here to help and I promise shooting together won't be as bad as you think. I've been known to crack a few jokes here and there, so if you don't walk away from our session having laughed a little, then I probably shouldn't be a photographer any more ;)

DO YOU HAVE A HAIR STYLIST/MAKEUP ARTIST YOU CAN RECOMMEND FOR MY SESSION?
Yes! Email me and I can send over some local recommendations. 

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO RESERVE MY DATE?
A 50% retainer for sessions and weddings must be made to officially reserve your date on my calendar. For sessions: the remaining amount isn't due until 10 days before your session. For weddings/elopements: The remaining amount isn't due until 30 days before your big day! Dates are first-come, first-serve and deposits are non-refundable.

WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY SESSION?
The 50% retainer paid at the time of booking is non-refundable! Because I schedule my sessions on a first-come, first-serve basis, if you need to reschedule your session, there is an additional $200 re-booking fee. I knowwww, it's not awesome to hear. BUT, I really value my time and have had some people take advantage of me in the past unfortunately. Preparing for a photoshoot take a lot of time, and this policy is in place purely to protect my time & all of the planning that happens on my end.

WHAT IF IT'S SUPPOSED TO RAIN ON THE DAY OF OUR SESSION?
I wish I could control the weather, but I can't ;) I always look at the weather the week before the session to see what kind of forecast there is. If there's the potential for rain, I'll make a call on whether or not to reschedule within 48 hours of when we were going to meet up to photograph your session.

HOW CAN I CONTACT YOU OR BOOK YOU FOR A SESSION OR WEDDING?
Simply click the "Book Me" link at the top right corner of this page and fill out the form. I will respond to you as quickly as I can (usually within a few hours) so that we can get your session on the calendar and start dreaming up your photoshoot I can't wait to work with you!
