FAQ's

::Where do your portrait sessions usually take place?::

More often than not, I  like to do portrait sessions in the subjects home.
I like how it adds a very personal touch to the photos.
I also like whoever I'm photographing to be completely comfortable,
and at ease. A home is the perfect place for that.
Other times though, I shoot in my studio, or outdoors.
And sometimes I do a combination of ALL the options!


 ::Are print options available? Or just digital files?::

Digital files of edited photos delivered via zip file, are standard with both,
portrait sessions and weddings.
With my wedding package a photo album is standard.
If prints are wanted, then I like to sit down with clients,
show them the printing price list, 
and review their most favorite photos to get printed.
Via skype for my out of state clients! 
Prints are usually delivered by hand in Portland, &
mail delivery for other clients outside of the city. 


 ::Are DVD's available to purchase in order to print on my own?::

Yes! You can most definitely purchase a DVD to print photos on your own!


::Do you offer different wedding packages?::

Yes, I offer three different packages that are customizable.  Every wedding is different.
Every bride & groom, groom & groom, bride & bride,
are so different :)
I like to encourage focusing on aspects that you deem important,
as opposed to simply trying to fit your day into a package.
 

::Do you offer different portrait sessions?::

I offer one, but every few months I try to offer mini portrait sessions
either in my studio, or at an outdoor location! 


::What is the wedding process like after we book you?::

Well to start off with, THANK YOU.
Then from there I like to meet a few times.
This way we can get to know each other, and discuss your wedding, your dreams,
and what you're most excited about!
Usually over brunch together!
I also like to take time to visit your wedding location(s), meet your wedding planner,
and explore possible portrait locations for the day of the wedding.  
We'll also do a bit of emailing, texting, skyping,
to go over timelines, and family photo lists.
Plus hanging out is just plain fun!


::How do WE prepare for our upcoming wedding/portrait session with you?::

After booking with me, my wonderful creative director/project manager will
send you a pdf to review!
It'll let you know how you should get ready!
It'll cover things like "What to wear", "Choosing your location"
"What to expect from {me!}"
In fact, the pdf is called "What to expect from your wedding/session!" 


::Do you shoot anything else besides weddings & portraits?::

Yes I do! I've recently ventured into commercial/fashion photography.
Feel free to email us to find out more about my rates! 


::Are you open to collaborating?::

YES & ALWAYS! Lets do this!
