Do you provide a second photographer for weddings?
I do indeed! Most of my wedding collections include a second photographer and if you book a collection without one, you can always add one on for an additional fee.
Do you travel?
Yes, yes, 100% yes. You can bet I'll happily jump on any plane to photograph you and your partner at any location.
I'm not very comfortable in front of the camera. Can you teach me what to do with my hands?
Totally. I know how awkward it can be in front of the camera (the main reason I'm the one behind the lens) and I will make sure you don't look awkward, stiff, or uncomfortable. I have plenty of easy prompts to help you feeling at ease in front of the camera and I will always get those natural smiles to shine through!
We want our engagement session to occur outside of your home city. Will you be able to accommodate this?
Happily! If you don't want your engagement session to occur within 1.5 hours of Denver, CO, there's nothing to worry about. I will travel anywhere for your engagement session because in the end, I want to provide you with photos that reflect who *you* two are, not who I am. For engagement sessions that require travel, an additional travel fee will be added on.
Do you have any guidance on how to make our engagement session meaningful and fun?
Always! Here are my top three tips on how to make the most out of your engagement session:

1. Wear something that you love, not something you think you *should* wear. If you're not the type of person to wear a bright flowy dress or a suit jacket, ditch it for those birks you rock on the daily. Or those trousers and flats. Or that comfy skirt and simple button-down shirt. Wearing something that is totally you will make you feel comfortable and will put you at ease during your session.

2. Choose a location that you love. You might have loved seeing one of my engagement sessions in the New Mexican desert but what if you've never even been to the state with the best green chile? Finding a location that you and your partner have a special connection with will ensure that you feel even more comfortable during your session and will help you both have lots of fun. This doesn't mean you *can't* go to a new location you've never been to for your engagement session but finding one you relate to really helps. If you need help finding that special location, I'm always happy to offer a helping hand.

3. Timing is everything. If you're wanting those beautiful photographs with warm, golden light, planning your engagement shoot at noon on a Saturday will not be ideal. The Golden Hour for photos is within 1-2 hours of sunrise and sunset and planning your shoot around this time really does make a difference.
Can you help us plan our elopement?
Of course! I *love* helping my clients as much as possible with their wedding day plans, especially if you're planning an intimate elopement. If you need help with finding the best location or local vendors for your elopement, I'm happy to provide any guidance you need. If you need more in-depth planning assistance, a planning fee will be added on.
We love our pets. Can they join us for our engagement session, family session, or wedding?
ohmygosh, yes please!
Is there any way to save some money on wedding photography?
If you're planning an elopement or intimate wedding at select locations (view more on my pricing page below), I'm happy to offer discounts! Or, if you're planning a weekday affair, a winter wedding (November - February), or are in a crunch with less than three months until your wedding date, I'm happy to provide some flexibility with my wedding fees. Let's discuss your plans over the phone so I know how best I can serve you with your current budget.
My family member / friend is a budding photographer. Do you mind if they take photographs at the wedding?
While I fully support family members' / friends' excitement and desire to take photos during the wedding, having someone else with a professional camera at the wedding can often be disruptive. If they are not intruding on where I need to be to take photographs to fully capture your wedding day, then they are totally welcome to take photographs. If you think this may be a concern, let's have an open discussion about how we can work together on this.
Can we get the RAW files/unedited versions of the photos you took?
This is 100% not doable. By hiring me, you are hiring not only my photographic skills, but also my artistic editing style. By providing RAW or unedited photos, I will be giving up my creative license and that is not something professional photographers do. If you have concerns about this, let's have an open conversation about these details.
