FAQ

WE’RE SUPER AWKWARD IN FRONT OF A CAMERA, WILL YOU POSE US?

I tell the story of your connection and the day that brought everyone together with a natural, documentary approach. I use minimal direction, combined with actions and games, which allow for a more comfortable experience and more authentic photos. I take storytelling, landscape, and transitional photos to explain the movement from one moment to the next and most importantly I want to produce photos that are beautiful and tell the honest story of your unique selves.

HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR DATE?

Once we decide we are a perfect fit, I will make up and online contract for you. When you digitally sign the contract and send a non-refundable 33% retainer fee your date is secured (payment plans are available and the remainder of your balance is due 1 week before your wedding date).

DO YOU EDIT ALL OF THE PHOTOS? DO YOU EDIT IN BLACK AND WHITE?

Most lifestyle sessions produce a minimum of 50 edited digital images. Each wedding varies depending on the package, however most weddings produce between 500-800 edited digital images. I am a huge fan of editing in black and white, as it has this remarkable ability to truly freeze a moment and all of the emotion that comes with it. You will see black and white images often on my website and within your edited gallery.

HOW AND WHEN DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?

After your wedding day I am so excited to get to work on your photos that I will get you a sneak peek within a week, and the full gallery will be ready within 8 weeks. An engagement or lifestyle session gallery will be returned within 30 days. Your photos will be delivered via email where you will be given your own personal online gallery through Pixieset. From there you can share, download, and print your photos.

DO WE HAVE TO DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?

I include an engagement session in all of my wedding packages, it is the perfect time for us to hang out and get comfortable with each other, for me to understand how you naturally connect together, and to create some gorgeous photos during such an exciting time in your lives for you to look back on and remember how it all began.

WHAT DO WE WEAR FOR OUR ENGAGEMENT/LIFESTYLE SESSION?

I have session guides available for all types of sessions I offer under the RESOURCES tab here on my website. There you will find tips, links to my Pinterest boards, and shopping suggestions.

WHAT IF IT’S RAINING?

Some of my absolute favourite photos have been during rainy, misty and even stormy weather. The sky is so perfectly even when its cloudy and it encourages my couples to really enjoy the moment. I have a set of clear umbrellas as well so we can embrace the rain without getting soaked.

DO YOU TRAVEL AND WHAT DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?

I absolutely travel! Any location within an hour of Kingston, Ontario is included. Dependent on the location, I will then charge travel accordingly. I also offer elopement packages, contact me for special pricing.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

I shoot with two Canon camera bodies (5D Mark iv + 6D), all prime lenses, and canon flash during reception only.

DO WE FEED YOU AT OUR WEDDING? DO WE INCLUDE YOU IN THE SEATING CHART?

Yes please! I actually love to be seated with your guests so I can chat with them while taking a little break and I often end up hearing some amazing stories about you two from those who love you most.
