Questions & Answers

Do you travel for work?

Yessss, a 1000 times! I’m based in San Diego but travel is my big passion and I’m down to wherever love takes you! Check out my travel dates and see if we can work something out.

Is there a travel fee?

There’s no travel fee for weddings within 50 miles of San Diego. If you’re having your wedding outside of Southern California, just provide me roundtrip tickets and rental car (or gas/mileage if driving). I don’t mind staying with your friends or family at all for a destination wedding. Actually, I liked it because I usually ended up having a great time with bridal tribes and family members.

We’ve never done anything like this before, we’re not photogenic!

No worries at all! I gotchu! All of my couples have no experience being in front of the camera before but usually they'd end up nailing it! It’s my job to help you relax and feel your best, and guide you through the experience. Just be yourself and we’re gonna have a grand time!

Should we do an engagement session?

It’s not required but it’s always fun to do and I personally love doing it! It’s a great way for you two to practice being in front of the camera, so when the big day comes, you’re full on ready to rock! Not to mention that we’re gonna have a great time shooting, running wild, chasing light and having drinks after. And most important of all, to celebrate this special moment - you guys are ENGAGED!

What do we wear for the shoot?

I’ll send you an outfit guide so no worries!

What’s your turnaround time?

Typically it’s 3-4 weeks for sessions and 6-8 weeks for weddings. During peak season it could be around 10 weeks max.

How many images do you deliver?

It depends on your wedding timeline since every wedding is different. Typically you’ll receive 75-100 final images for every hour of coverage.

Can we have all the images?

Yup! Pretty much all of them! I’ll just get rid of the blurry or light testing. I don’t withhold any photos from you to make some extra cash. I just want you to have all the moments because they are yours and part of your special day.

Do you edit the photos?

Yepp! I do for every single one of them to meet the aesthetic standard. I only deliver final retouched photos and they’re ready to go.

Can you photoshop us?

I don’t do heavy photoshopping and alter the way you look though (of course I'll take out the acne, bruises, unwanted objects on the background, etc). I want to keep it as natural as possible so you’ll look like your best selves. If you’re self-conscious about something just let me know and I’ll pay extra attention to it while we’re shooting!

How do we receive the photos?

Your photos will be delivered via a personalized online gallery where you can download, share them with friends. The gallery has a clean and simple interface.
The online gallery will expire after a certain period of time (4-6 months) so please download them when you have a chance.

Do you send raw files?

Nope! You don't come into a fine restaurant and ask for raw ingredients so :)

Do you have insurance?

Yes, I do because it's industry standard. If your venue requires, just let me know.

How do you take payments?

I take $1500 to reserve your date and the rest will due 30 days before the wedding. I accept pretty much any form of payment from credit cards, cash, check, Venmo, Zelle.

Do I have to sign a contract?

Yes! We will both sign a contract with details of your wedding package, terms and conditions, just basic stuff that we gotta do.

Can you reserve my date via email or text communication?

Unfortunately, no. My service is first come first serve so I can't guarantee availability until there's a deposit and signed contract.
