Q: How do I book you? 

A: Email me here and we will get you all taken care of! If you'd like to set up a phone call, email me with the best time of day to talk. (:   

Q: Can you travel? 

A: Absolutely! I'm always down to travel! The places I visit most often are New Orleans, Houston. Contact me to see if I'll be passing through your area or inquire about any location worldwide.  If you need me to travel outside of the Florida Panhandle, travel fees will be added to your package.

Q: How would you describe your clients? 

A: My clients are literally the sweetest people in the world! I thank God every day for sending me the best people to work with! They are kind and laid back!

Q: How would you describe your editing style? 

A: People describe my editing style as bright and warm with the perfect amount of pop!  

Q: How would you describe your posing style? 

A: I love candid and relaxed posing where I give you prompts and actions to do to get the genuine laughter and emotion out of you. Whenever the opportunity presents itself, I like to stand back and let natural moments happen. Just be prepared to have some fun and I'll take care of the rest! 

Q: Can I request specific things for my session or wedding? 

A: Absolutely! I always encourage my clients to communicate certain desires they have for their session! I feel like there's a stigma with photographers where their clients feel like they can't ask for a few specific things that they want because they don't want their photog to feel like they don't trust them. And while this is a good thing, there's a difference between not trusting your photographer and having a few ideas for your session. This is your session/wedding day; not mine! I want you to LOVE it! Yes, I will exercise my creative liscense (that's why you hired me), but if you see a cool wall, or you want a specific pose don't hesitate to ask! Be sure to remind me during the session of these things! 

Q: What should I wear?  

A: When you book with me I'll send you my Style Guide. This includes all of my helpful tips to get the most out of your session! Wear something that is comfortable and your style. Be yourselves!

Q: What gear do you use?

A: For portraits I use a Canon 5D Mark IV camera body and either a Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4 or a Canon 50mm f/1.4.

For weddings I use a 5D Mark IV camera body, a 6D camera body, Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4, Canon 50mm f/1.4, Canon 100mm, Canon 85mm, and speedlight flashes for the reception.

Q: Can you travel?

A: Absolutely! I am located in the Florida Panhandle, but I would be happy to travel to you. If you need me to travel outside of the Florida Panhandle, travel fees will be added to your package.

Q: What is your process for portraits/events from start to finish? 

  1. First we will find a date that works for the both of us and I'll send you pricing info

  3. The day of our session I'll send you a text confirming all the details.

  4. I'll photograph your pretty faces

  5. I'll send you a sneak peek within the week after our session.

  6. I will pick all of the good pictures (you know the ones where your eyes aren't closed) and edit them all. Your full gallery will be delivered within 30 days, and the wait is so worth it! Consistency in editing matters so much to me! (If you need your images by a certain date because of a birthday, product release, holiday, etc. email me about my expidited editing rates!)

Q: What is your process for weddings from start to finish?

Q: Should we do an engagement session? What if we already had an engagement session?

A: I highly recommend doing another engagement shoot with me anyways. It will help you become more comfortable with standing in front of the camera and give us a chance to get to know each other before your wedding! To find pricing and information for engagement sessions click here.
