How many images do you include?
It varies with each wedding packages. Each package has a set number of photos you will most definitely receive. I always like to say more will be included depending on what is going on the day of the wedding. Obviously, if it is a busy wedding day there will be more going on and more to capture. I will always include the images that tell the story best. I will not leave any out because of image requirements. ;)
Do you work with a second shooter?
Yes! I will always have a second photographer with me. I want to be able to capture both the bride and groom's reaction. That just isn't possible with one photographer.
It is normally my husband, Jay. There are times when he is not available and I will have a different second shooter with me. Rest assured, I ALWAYS make sure the photographer I bring with me is someone I 100% trust. I would never risk the quality of your images.
will you recommend vendors for my wedding day?
ABSOLUTELY! I have worked with some of the best vendors in Mississippi. I would be more than happy to send them your way! Who wouldn't want to work along side some of the best people around?! ;)
Do you offer printed photographs?
Yes! I do offer prints! The print lab I use is amazing. I am not just saying that. You can CLEARLY see the difference from consumer vs. professional print. Hence, the price difference. If my brides would like to have them printed themselves I always recommend several places such as or www.cgproprints.com. Both of those websites do a fantastic job!
Avoid Walmart and Walgreens at all cost. Their print quality is terrible. It will not do your photos justice. You spent quite a bit on your wedding photos. You should invest in having them printed and hung in your home for friends and family to see!
How many weddings do you take per year?
Each year varies with my personal schedule. I typically try to stay around 35 weddings per year, but for 2021 I am only planning to book 18-24 weddings. I would LOVE to fill my calendar up for the whole entire year. However, I love getting to know my clients. I value quality over quantity. Also, I leave several weekends open to continue my education in photography and revamp/refuel before the next wedding.
Do you prefer candid or staged images?
One of the most important things to me as your photographer is to capture the feeling of the day... exactly how it plays out. However, I will move the bride and groom around at times to ensure they are in the best light with little to no clutter in the background.
How long does it take to get my images back?
For engagements/bridals, turnaround time is 2 weeks. For weddings, it typically takes 2-4 weeks. I will keep you updated so you aren't left guessing!
