These are my most frequently asked questions, but do not hesitate to reach out with anything else you are wondering!
How long have you been a photographer? I have been shooting for 9 years! I want to do this forever and I'm never looking back.
How many weddings + elopements do you take on a year? I never want to stretch myself thin so to give each client my best, I limit my year to 15 full weddings and 25 elopements.
What is your turnaround time? This is subject to change based on the time of year, how busy I am, my travel schedule, and the holidays but typically portrait sessions are delivered in three weeks and weddings or elopements are delivered in five weeks.
How many images can I expect in my gallery? This will vary, but just know I do not withhold images from clients. If an images meets my standard and is technically "good" (eyes open, no crazy faces, etc) I will include it in your gallery. I also include variety in my editing including B+W and a vintage film edit.
Where are you based? Do you + your clients travel? I am based in Oregon City, Oregon! While I LOVE to travel for clients to their dream locations, it is not uncommon for clients to travel to me while making a vacation adventure out of it. Oregon is absolutely stunning and I can give you all the tips + tricks because I was born and raised here while exploring ALL THE TIME.
Where should we go for our session or elopement? I have a master list on Google Maps of location options I have already scouted and I include additional location scouting in my elopement packages. Like I mentioned, I was born and raised in Oregon so I am most familiar with this area but when traveling to other states and countries, I am very confident in exploring new areas to find you the very best fit for an epic and beautiful location.
Can I bring my dog to my session or elopement? Absolutely. I am a friend to all animal companions and would encourage you to bring yours ALWAYS. It creates even more magic for you and your partner or family.
What do we wear for our family session? I'll be sending you an outfit guide as part of the planning process after booking so do not worry!
What is the booking process for our wedding or elopement? I require 30% to reserve the date + time. The balance is due two weeks prior to the wedding or elopement date. I do offer payment plans if set up with my autopay option.
Do you offer discounts? Unless I explicitly share about a sale or promotion I am offering, no I do not offer discounts. My prices are firm for the simple reason of this lovely work being my livelihood.
Do you help in the planning process? Yes, I absolutely offer all my experience, tips, and information with clients who have committed to working with me. It is an honor to be trusted fully in the whole process.
Jen has done a lot of photo sessions for us and OMG! You will not be disappointed. She was the first person my husband thought of when thinking about a photographer for our wedding, (That means a lot because it is a huge day)! She makes you feel comfortable, beautiful and makes it so much fun all at the same time! She is hands down the best! <3
