best day ever!

capturing big ass parties, intimate gatherings, elopements and engagements

Your wedding day is that rare occasion where all your friends and family meet + gather together and your ceremony is the reason for it all. This is the only time in your life all of these people will be in the same room and I truly value capturing that. After all the food is eaten, the cake is cut, the toasts are cried & laughed over and the flawless dance moves are danced, all you have left are your photos. They will be framed and shared for years to come. Your wedding experience is so much more than just booking and filling out paperwork, it's preserving your memories to be relived through photographs, it's help with planning to ensure your wedding vision is brought to life, it's your vendors working as a team to give you the day you have dreamed of, its capturing the details you put thought and love into.

When we show our wedding photographs to friends and family everyone says, "Wow. That is exactly how I remember that day". . . and THAT is exactly what we wanted. Thank you, Alicia!"

FAQ

 

What makes you different? Why should we book you?


I will let other clients/vendors answer this because I have been told a variation of this several times: "I feel like each of your wedding galleries is unique to that wedding. You have a certain style that is consistent but the colors, vibes and moments make me feel like I am inside that wedding. I also love that you capture everything from styled details to perfectly composed portraits to fun candid moments. There is such a wide variety of images that fully show off the entire day and there is sooooo much to choose from for the wedding album!!!"




How long have you been photographing weddings?


I've been photographing 30+ weddings per year since 2013. I went full-time in 2016 and it's the BEST. JOB. EVER.




Do you photograph more than one wedding a day?


Nope! I leave your wedding day wide open so I can be flexible with start/end times.




​Do you recommend a wedding planner?


ABSOLUTELY! If a full planner is not needed then at least a month of or day of coordinator is recommended! Most venues provide a coordinator but you need someone focusing on you from the beginning of the day until the end. Check out some awesome planners here.




Do we need two photographers?


Sometimes. I'm very comfortable photographing weddings alone but a second photographer is usually needed if you are getting ready in separate locations and want that covered or you have a 100+ guest count. We do not split a schedule, we work the same hours.




How many edited photos do you typically deliver?


Wedding galleries vary from 600-1000 images depending on how many hours of coverage your book.




How long after the wedding can we expect to see the photos?


Turnaround is 8 weeks for the full gallery.




How are the final images delivered?


Via an online gallery where you can download the high resolution images to your computer or phone. You can also share the gallery link with family and friends so they can download, share and print on their own too. ​




How do we book?


Weddings can be booked up to 2 years in advance, it is best to book when your wedding date is finalized and venue is booked. You can pay your retainer fee via your online portal and I will send you both over a contract to sign electronically. After the retainer fee is paid and contract is signed we are officially OFFICIAL!!!




​Can we share the images on social media?


Of course! ​You have full sharing rights and printing rights (a print release is provided). I do not watermark images (I think it is ugly).




We have multiple locations, is travel time included?


​Coverage is consecutive. Example: If you book 8 hours we can go wherever you want in those 8 hours.




What amount is required to hold our date? When is the balance due?


​$1000 retainer fee is due to lock in your date. The remaining balance is split into 2 payments due 30 days and 7 days before your wedding date. The payment schedule is in your contract and online portal.




What forms of payment do you accept?


​Credit/debit cards payments are accepted via your online portal. Check payments can be mailed to my studio.




Should we do an engagement session?


YESSSS! It's a good way to get familiar with how I shoot/work/pose/edit. It's also perfect for getting comfortable in front of the camera! You can add on an engagement session at any time.




Can we customize a package to fit our needs?


Yes! I'd love to create a custom package to fit your budget.




Do you charge a travel fee?


​I charge a flat rate travel fee of $500 due at the time of booking for locations within the US over 50 miles from Baltimore, MD.




Do you offer retouching?


I hand edit each image which includes color + exposure adjustment to match my editing style. I'm experienced with photoshop and can do extra retouching at an extra charge per image.




​Can we order prints and albums directly through you?


Yes! Visit the album shop here for info + samples. I offer the option to print directly through your online gallery but you can use the print release provided to print on your own as well.




How would you describe your style?


I have a documentary and editorial approach to photography. What that means is I try to capture the day without interrupting any moments. I will style details and give direction so that "posing" doesn't seem so stiff and awkward :) At the reception I will get in the middle of the dance floor to get fun party shots! When it comes to lighting techniques I use both natural light and flash to create the images you see on my website. My editing style is natural, vibrant and colorful. I am a firm believer in using my camera to create lovely images but I do touch up exposure and color. If I deliver a black & white photo, it's meant to be that way. I do not deliver unedited images or RAW images. With editing styles and different lighting situations ​comes a variation in how your skin tones may look. Since I aim to keep the colors in my images true to life I also focus on making sure your skin tone looks true to life too.




Why do you photograph weddings?


The sappy version...I draw emotion and inspiration from the happiness I feel in my own marriage. Photos have always been important to me and since becoming a family I print all of our photos from every portrait session and I save them in a box for our daughters after we rotate them out of frames. It's important to me to pass these down to our children in hopes that they are passed down forever. My mother, grandmother and great-grandmother have the most amazing photo album collections from their lives/our lives and it's one of the most valued things in our family. Your wedding day is that rare occasion where all your friends and family gather together, often meeting for the first time. This is the only time in your life all of these people will be in the same room and I truly value capturing that. After all the food is eaten, the cake is cut, the toasts are cried & laughed over and the flawless dance moves are danced, all you have left are your photos.




What do you even do on wedding days?


You can expect me to float around everywhere, I give you space so you can enjoy that time with your loved ones but one of us is usually in your line of sight. I'll fix your flyaways, pin boutonnieres and I'll even bustle your dress. I'm hands on and helpful but also in work mode with a camera attached to me ready to capture any moment in a seconds notice. I love natural light but every venue and wedding is different so I bring gear to create​ ideal lighting situations. If you don't see me I am either changing batteries/cards, uploading/backing up images on my hard drive, wandering around looking for photo spots, attempting to stay hydrated or eating my vendor meal. But all of those things are during brief moments of down-time. I would never step away at important moments and I communicate with other vendors so no events are missed.




What is your cancellation policy?


Rescheduling your wedding date may not be possible due to any previous bookings. If you want to cancel your contract I need written notice. The retainer fee is non-refundable.




Do you bring backup equipment?


YES! I bring multiple camera bodies, lenses, flashes, batteries, memory cards, a styling kit and emergency kit.




What is your backup plan?


I will be at your wedding. I have never missed a wedding day and I promise I care about your wedding day just as much as you do! If for some reason the worst of the worst happens and I am unable to come then my second photographer steps in as primary photographer and I reach out to my photography network for someone else to step in just in case. All editing, image delivery and album design/delivery will still be done by me. If I am unable to edit all of the images myself due to injury, illness or worse then they are outsourced to my editor who is well trained in my editing style. When it comes to traveling I give myself a 2 day cushion before/after in case there are delays.




Do you offer videography or a photobooth?


I do not. I have a list of awesome videographers and photobooth companies here.




Do you have insurance?


Sure do. Let me know if your venue needs my info!
