Frequently asked questions

How much is the deposit to book you?


50% (with the remaining 50% due 1 week before your wedding)




Taxes?


While you don't normally pay taxes on services, Texas considers photography services a product and makes me collect sales tax and pay it quarterly.




Do you offer videography?


I don't, but I always recommend Here After Films! (hereafterfilms.com)




How much is travel?


For weddings, travel is free to any location in Texas! For photoshoots (including engagement sessions) the travel fee is 54¢/round-trip-mile, but only if I'll be traveling more than an hour from my home in New Braunfels, Texas.




Are the number of photos limited?


NOPE! There's no image limit, but I estimate that you'll receive approximately 70-100/hour of shooting.




How are the photos delivered to us?


You'll get your photos digitally delivered to you in a nice, organized online gallery (hosted by Pixieset) where you can easily download the entire thing to your computer, create a list of your favorites to share with me so that I can design your album, and share it with your friends/family. If you're package includes a custom printed album, you'll receive that in the mail after I've designed and ordered it! :)




How fast do we get the photos?


For weddings, my contract says 6-8 weeks but it's usually much sooner. For all photoshoots, I edit them the following Tuesday and deliver them either that night or the next morning.




What do we wear to the engagement session?


Short answer: Whatever you want. Long answer: A lot of my clients like to have 2 outfits; a "nice" one and a more "casual one." It's up to you though, feel free to wear just one outfit! If you're stumped on what to wear, I have suggestions! Feel free to ask and I'll send you my pinterest board of outfit inspo. :)




Where are you located?


New Braunfels, Texas (Between Austin and San Antonio)




What does the second shooter do?


More than anything, the second shooter is SECURITY. If I were to have an emergency on the day of your wedding, you know you'll be covered with a trustworthy back-up photographer already in place and ready to take some beautiful photos (which I would still edit to match my style). The second shooter has many roles, depending on what I need most at any given moment: -Letting me be in 2 places at once when needed -Shooting alternative angles -Assisting me with dress fluffing, styling, corraling groomsmen, you name it I only bring along an assistant photographer that is skilled and knowledgable enough (not a student with no experience) to trust to shoot the wedding alone, if it were needed.
