say hey...

this gon' be gooooooood…

im busy over here geeking out that you just messaged me, but when im done i will get back to you!

did you find what you were looking for?

GO FOR IT! Seriously. while some photographers prefer natural light to artificial light, you should do what makes you happy. I come totally prepared to handle any lighting situation thrown my way. Expectations will be different though, and that's just me being honest. You can't expect golden hour photos of you and your partner if your ceremony is late in the evening. Unless you have a first look, but that's a different convo for a different day. You will never have to worry about whether you images will come out nicely due to light.

MY FIANCE AND I REALLY WANT TO HAVE A NIGHTTIME WEDDING, BUT HAVE HEARD THAT WILL SPELL DISASTER FOR OUR PICTURES. WHAT DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD DO?

q:

I would definitely say that I pride myself on catering to the needs and desires of my couples. I also pride myself on doing the best I can for my clients, and that means I'm honest! Formal photos doesn't mean you have to see each other before the ceremony. I understand this is very important for some people, and am extremely flexible. I find doing formal photos before the ceremony relieves a ton of stress on brides, grooms, and their family members.  

a:

I KNOW IT'S BEST TO TAKE FORMAL PHOTOS BEFORE THE CEREMONY, BUT WE'RE TRADITIONAL. DO WE HAVE TO TAKE FORMAL PHOTOS BEFORE THE WEDDING?

q:

Nerrrrp. Sorry, not sorry! Family sessions are Tuesday or Thursday evenings ONLY. No exceptions. We can totally rock out a sunrise session though, if that's something you're in to! 

a:

I'm OUT HERE WONDERING WHAT TIME WE CAN START OUR FAMILY PHOTOS. IS NOON OKAY?

q:

Short answer: no. Long answer... trust me, the outtakes can be rough. You don't want those. Mid-sneeze? No thanks. I take pride in only presenting you with the best of the best.

a:

Will I get all of the photos you took? HOW WILL YOU SEND THE EDITED PHOTOS TO ME?

q:

YES PLEASE AND THANK YOU. For real though, I love traveling and sleeping in hotel beds. It's weird, but it's fine.  I do charge a travel fee anywhere outside the state of Indiana, but if you're on my travel bucket list you will get a seriously great deal!

a:

I would just love it if you could travel to me! Do you do that?

q:

Of course, as long as he stays out of my way and is not disruptive to my process. I'm there to do my job and very frequently anyone with a camera or iPhone will interfere with my job. I do offer discounts on all unplugged weddings. Check out this OffBeat Bride article to find out what an unplugged wedding is. 

What exactly is an unplugged wedding? 

a:

CAN My UNCLE (Cousin, BFF, HAIR DRESSER) take photos on wedding day? 

q:

GUYS. I GET IT. Money is money. I also have to pay bills so I totally understand! I try my VERY best to work with every budget. Because of this, I am able to book on an hourly basis. I do require a minimum of 2 hours booked. 

Family and studio sessions are run in a very specific and calculated way. Due to this, there aren't any sessions that can be shortened due to budget constraints. 

a:

I have a smaller WEDDING budget, and I love your work so much, is there anything we can do?
