Once you know your date, book early! There are always some dates that don't get snatched up for one reason or another... so, even if your wedding is 6 weeks away, we might be able to work something out! I don't book any further than 24 months out.
How do I reserve my wedding date?
I would love to be a part of your wedding day! There is a retainer of $500 this is applied to your package of choice, your final remaining balance is due 3 weeks prior to your wedding date. Once you pay your retainer the day is booked exclusively for you!
What should I expect during my engagement session?
Your session will be fun and casual. I know how to pose you so that you look fabulous in each and every picture... but my photography is more about capturing your true personality and the love between you than forcing you to hold an awkward pose.
What if it rains during our engagement session?
If it’s sprinkling and you’re up for it, rainy sessions can turn out awesome! Just imagine... rain boots, cute umbrellas, splashing in puddles… the options are endless! If there’s a thunderstorm, torrential downpour, or it’s 20 below zero, we’ll reschedule… no problem.
What should I wear to my engagement session?
I love color! Color color color! Oh, and texture is great too. Make sure both you and your fiancé are coordinated nicely (coordinated doesn’t mean matching... it means that your colors go together and are pleasing to the eye). As for the level of formality, it’s really up to you, but I think cocktail dresses and dress shirts look awesome!
How long should I set aside for family portraits on our wedding day? Wedding party? Bride & Groom?
It really depends on the size of your family, but 30 minutes is a good starting point. 1 hour total for wedding party and photos of the couple. We can discuss this further as we get closer to your wedding day. I will help you establish a timeline that fits everyone’s needs.
Do you shoot in color or black and white?
All of my photos are shot in color, but a select number of them will be delivered to you in black and white. I also double some digital files if I choose different editing and coloring options. Doing it this way ensures I have options and can perfect each and every photo before it lands in your hands.
Why is your Gold package that includes the album so expensive?
Digital files are great (I know… I have tens of thousands of them!), but after you upload your photos to Facebook, and your family and friends leave adoring comments, it’s only a matter of time before they get lost in the mix and are forgotten about. Nothing will be viewed in years to come quite like a physical album. Imagine sitting on your front porch with your husband 50-some years from now, showing your grand-kids the images from the day Grandma and Grandpa got married. Nothing can really beat that moment. Zook Book is an award winning album. Our flush mount albums includes lay flat pages and handcrafted features throughout the album. The Reflection cover is 1/4" thick and practically glows! Binding is leather and Pages are rigid and 1/16" thick.
