FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
IS YOUR QUESTION NOT HERE? CONTACT ME WITH YOUR QUESTION!
DO YOU SHOOT FAMILIES AND OTHER THINGS OTHER THAN WEDDINGS?
Even though I primarily take wedding clients, I definitely try to make the time for families, seniors and everything else! Shoot me a message with your questions and availability to book your portrait session!
HOW FAR OUT DO YOU BOOK?
I like to book 1-3 months before you portrait session and 6-12 months before your wedding day to assure availability. But never hesitate to message me if you need photo's before or after that!
WE DON'T LIVE IN UTAH, CAN YOU STILL PHOTOGRAPH OUR WEDDING?
Yes, DEFINITELY! I love traveling and meeting new people. I have a couple of weddings in Portland & Denver this year and would love to add some more places to the list!
WE'RE REALLY AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, HOW DO YOU MAKE US LOOK GOOD?
Don't worry about that! Everyone thinks they're awkward in photo's. It's my job to make sure you're comfortable, look gorgeous and have a good time! I like to laugh, so prepare for your cheeks to hurt by the end of the day! If you have any concerns, don't be scared to let me know. I want to make sure you love your images and enjoy your experience!
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR TO OUR PORTRAIT SESSION?
I am totally okay with you sending me photo's of your outfits to make sure it photographs well! The only things I don't suggest are crazy patterns like too many stripes or too vibrant of colors. We want you to wear the clothes, not them wear you! There's nothing I want more than for you to be the center of your images. I also have a Pinterest board full of ideas! Click to see what I love for families and engagements!
DO YOU HAVE A SHOT LIST?
For portrait sessions, I use a shot list that I will bring along. For weddings, I have a basic layout of how your family photo's will go. If you would like anything specific, let me know! You can send me photo's of what you like, or print out your own shot list! It's your day, I want to make sure it goes exactly how you want.
WHERE SHOULD WE SHOOT?
I would love to suggest locations if you need help, but preferably we would shoot at one of your favorite places!
CAN OTHER PEOPLE TAKE PHOTO'S AT OUR WEDDING WHILE YOU DO?
Yes of course! I do suggest an unplugged ceremony if you are having one, so you don't have a bunch of camera, phone's and tablets in your ceremony photo's. However, it is your big day, we can have it however you would like! I don't mind people taking photo's during the family photo's as long as they don't stand in front of me and can hop in a few so we capture those fun memories for you! If we do couple portraits on your wedding day, cell phone's are only allowed and they are not allowed to direct the couple. I want to make sure you get the most professional photo's possible!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET OUR PHOTO'S BACK?
For portrait sessions, expect 3-4 weeks to get your gallery. For weddings, 4-6 weeks. If you need them rushed, we can figure that out!
WHAT EQUIPMENT AND EDITING PROGRAMS DO YOU USE?
I use a Canon 6D Mark ii with various Canon and Sigma lenses. I use primarily Mastin presets, but sometimes throw images in Photoshop if I feel it needs a little something!
HOW MUCH DO YOU COST?
Great question! You can view my pricing by clicking the weddings or families tabs!

I am SO excited to work with you!! Head over to my contact page to shoot me a message and get the process rolling!
