Q & A





I’m ready to book! How do we reserve our date?


I always like to make sure that I have a connection with all of my couples.  First off, schedule a phone call so that we can to get to know each other a bit and make sure we are a good fit.  While style is important, personality is crucial when picking the right photographer for you!

Email with any questions and let’s set up a call to make you a customized package. I am here for you the whole way to answer any questions about packages, help you build a schedule, figure out what package is best for the two of you. I will write up a contract via Honeybook my online accounting system and send it over for you with all the legal things. After the two of you both sign and pay the 50% retainer or set up a payment plan, your date is confirmed!

How many images will we receive?


The number of images you receive always depends on each individual couple, the day’s schedule, your personal preference, and time available. I deliver 60+ images per hour.

How do we Receive our wedding photos?


The photographs will be available in a private online gallery ready for high resolution download for one year after you receive your edits!

Do you require an engagement session?


I have learned over the years that it is a great way to get to know my couples and get them comfortable in front of my camera, which is SO important on your wedding day! It offers us a chance to develop a fun working relationship and learn about each others’ styles!

 How do you describe your shooting style?


My shooting style is documentary based, capturing all the important moments and fresh candids but including a mix of directed photos when working with your bridal party and family!  When it comes to the two of you, I work my posing magic to put you into poses that feel real and authentic and have energy and movement, while finding the best light to shoot you in.  My style is the opposite of traditional and stuffy, instead I encourage lots of movement, emotion, funny faces, and laughing!

Okay, how about your editing style?


My editing style is very colorful, bold and true-to-life, with a touch of moody!  I’m committed to make images that are realist and beautiful and that capture the ambiance of the day.

How long does it take to edit and receive the full gallery?


My contract states that the full wedding gallery is deliver 6-8 weeks from the wedding date. Usually in slower seasons our turnaround time is between 3-4 weeks and in busy seasons 6-8 weeks. With your package you always receive a sneak peek of 30+ images within one week from your wedding day (usually sooner!) to share right away!

Do you offer printing? Do you offer albums?


Yes! I have printing available directly on your private online gallery from a professional printing shop I have been using since I started photography, local to Minnesota where I am from!

Albums are also available and if interested I am happy to talk more about the prices & design. I LOVE being able to design albums, it is SO COOL for you to be able to physically see (and touch) the photos that tell your story.

What kind of equipment do you use? Do you have back ups?


I use Canon equipment and my second shooters always shoot with Nikon or Canon.  We have lighting equipment and off-camera flash to be prepared for all kinds of lighting situation (meaning:  we got you in that dark reception room!) We always bring backup cameras, lenses, memory cards, and batteries with us when shooting a wedding as well as having the files writing on two different memory cards instantly.
