Do you travel out of state for weddings?
umm YAAS! In order to book us for your out of state wedding we require that flights, lodging, and transportation be covered WITH whichever package you choose!

Do you only shoot intimate weddings and elopements?
Yes! We love shooting intimate weddings and elopements with up to 50 guests or less - this allows us to get all the shots we need to tell YOUR story without too many people in the way ;) and it’s just a lot more personable and fun for us!

We charge travel fees of $1.60 per mile after the complimentary 20 miles from 92647.

We already locked in a wedding contract, but can I still add an extra hour to my package?
Of course!! As long as you let us know before your final payment. We do charge overtime after the contracted hours – so lemme know asap!

Do you offer services for longer than 8 hours?
Unfortunately, no ;( our body, legs, and hungry bellies cannot last longer than 8 hours.

How do I know if the location I want to take my engagement photos at requires a photography permit?
It’s always best to do a quick search on the locations that you’re interested in.

What if it does require a permit?
We ask that the clients cover any permits and fees associated with their chosen locations.

Do you bring props to your photo sessions?
No, we do not provide any props, but if you’d like to incorporate some you are more than welcomed to bring your own.

Do you offer videography services too?
Unfortunately, we are no longer offering videography services.

We’re ready to book you, what’s the next step?
I’ll send you our contract and from there you are able to sign it electronically and make your first deposit online! Then we are officially booked! * jazz hands *

It’s so important to book at least 6 months in advance cause we do book up fast!

How long until my wedding photos will be ready?
Wedding photos are usually available 8-10 weeks after wedding date on a private online gallery

How many outfits can I wear to my photo session?
Our photo sessions are usually 1.5 hours long, I would recommend just to bring 1 as it does cut into time when you have to change outfits, but if you want to bring something that’s easy to change quickly in and out of that’s fine too!

When will my engagement photos be ready?
Engagement photos are ready 3 weeks after the photo session

Do you know any cool locations that we can do our photo session at?

When will I receive my wedding video?
Wedding videos are ready 12-14 weeks and will be available for download on Vimeo

What should I wear to my photo session?
Long flowy dresses are my favorite because it captures such awesome movements with the wind and looks so great on any body type. I also recommend avoiding any clashing patterns and large logos!
