some common questions i get asked...
How will I receive my photographs? Do I get a print release?You will receive your edited photographs via a digital download. That download link with a pin is available to you for 30 days. YOU are responsible for backing up and downloading those images to 1-2 places (i.e. personal computer, external flash drive, etc).
What's a print release? That means you have full rights to your photographs to print them as many times as possible. Just send me a picture of them hung up so I can see ;)
How long will it take to receive my photos?I carefully choose and edit each and every photograph you receive. That typically takes about 2-4 weeks for portrait, family, and engagement sessions. It typically takes 4-6 weeks for weddings. BUT I promise to send you sneak peaks with in the first 48-72 hours :)
Can I have the RAW or unedited photographs for my own use?So you don't go to a restaurant and order a raw burger do you? Why would you do the same with me? You booked me for my end product - an edited gallery of photos and you and your boo.
How long does a session last?
Typically, a photoshoot can last for 1-1.5 hours, but can easily run into 2 hours. Definitely 2, if we are going to more than one location and we are just having too much fun.
What should I wear?
You can wear as many outfits you want. Of course, if we have enough time during the shoot. I want you two to feel comfortable with each other and what you are wearing. If you guys need help with what you should wear, I have a lovely little Pinterest board (click here) that you can look at for inspiration.
A good rule of thumb for clothing is: minimalism. Minimal patterns, no sneakers or bright colors. Wherever we're doing your photo shoot, try to wear colors that match the background. Do ya nails and get a fresh haircut.
What if you deliver a B & W photo but I want it in color?Not a problem! I can always make additional edits however please be aware of the edit fee specified in your contract.
I’m super shy and don’t know how to open up. What should I do?Guys, I hear wine really makes the heart and mind a happy place…. So maybe bring a bottle of wine! Maybe rum is your thing. Take a shot or two before your session to knock out the nerves. I’ll drive ;) But seriously, if drinking isn’t your thing, just prepare yourself to laugh at my dumb self trying to get reactions from you all along the way. It will be a blast and more often than not, I have the guys saying “hey that went fast and it was even fun!”
Can I have my friend or whoever come watch our session?Um, I would prefer not. This isn’t because I don’t want others watching me or whatever. It’s because you aren’t going to be fully yourselves with others there. It really can ruin the vibe that we have going on between the three of us. Sorry!
Do you travel for weddings/sessions?HECK YES I DO. I can’t say it any louder. I will travel anywhere for your photos to be taken. I love travel and all that comes with it. The best and simplist way to estimate how much travel fees will be... search a round trip ticket from San Diego to your destination plus a 2 night stay at a hotel/airbnb near your location of choice. If you want to have a destination wedding, let’s do it!! I’d be honored to be that photographer :)
