Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long does it take to get our images back?
A: My goal is to have your finished photos back in 2-4 weeks. This could be even quicker, or be slightly behind depending on scheduling. Every set of photos is edited by me, and I want to make sure your images look their best before I deliver them!
Q: Do you use Photoshop to retouch Photos?
A: For the most part no. Every photo is edited for feel and color so that it looks it’s best before I deliver the images to you. The vast majority of my images do not have any drastic alterations. If you have a temporary blemish, I will of course remove it if needed.
Q: We are uncomfortable in front of the camera. Will you help us with posing/make us look natural?
A: Most people that I know, including myself, aren’t super comfortable in front of the camera. People don’t normally spend lots of time in front of the camera, as we are usually behind our iPhone screens capturing what we see. I strive to be present and friendly while photographing you, but not overbearing. I want to capture you, and will help make that a fun and natural process!
Q: How many images can we expect to receive?
A: My goal is to deliver the best images. For all of my image sets, I value quality over hitting a certain number of images you get. I don’t want you to be inundated with too many photos to the point where it doesn’t become enjoyable to look through your set. Weddings typically have 400-800 images, and Portraits often have 50-100 images.
Q: Can we have all the photos that you take?
A: No. My work is based highly on what I choose to show. A large part of why why you’re hiring me is for my creative perspective and my decision making process when it comes to artfully crafting your photos.
Q: Can we have the RAW images?
A: No. Delivering a set of RAW images is highly impractical, and part of the reason my clients hire me is for image editing consistency.
Q: Do you make albums?
A: Yes! Please let me know if you’re interested in ordering an album for your set!
