The FAQ

Do you Travel?

Yes! I am based in Texas and beyond! I offer discounts to locations all over the United States and certain dream spots within Texas! Price may depend on travel distance.

How long have you been doing this?

I have been taking photos of friends and family since high school so almost 5 years! However, I started professionally two years ago!

How many photos do we get?

The number of photos you receive depends on the session booked. Typically couples and engagements will receive 100-200 photos or more! Weddings will receive around 800-1200. I am a big fan of sending AS MANY photos as possible.

How do we get our photos?

Clients photo albums will be privately uploaded to PicTime! You will be sent a link with all the information needed to access your private, downloadable gallery.

Do you retouch photos?

I consider myself a more natural photographer. However, I will do light retouching on blemishes, or natural teeth whitening just to enhance the image!

Whats your turn around time?

Average turn around time is 2-6 weeks depending on the session! For weddings it can be anywhere from 3-6, while couples/engagements can be much quicker! I always want to edited AS SOON as I get home from a session but to ensure the longevity of this business I give myself time to perfect the images for all of you.

How do we book you?

You can fill out my inquiry contact form on the 'contact me' page of this website! Once you decide to book with me all communication will take place through my email for official statements, and contract work.

Can you help us with planning?

Yes! I have a degree in Marketing and have spent most of my internships in college doing event planning. So whether its a birthday party or even a wedding I am always down to plan something. I even planned my own wedding!

What should we do for an engagement session?

I always suggest picking a place that has either a special meaning to you and your partner, or deciding on a spot that you both find romantic. If you and your partner have no preference I have spots all over the DFW area I love to use.

If you are not located in Dallas I will spend time researching the best spots to ensure your photo session matches what your dreaming of.

What should we wear?

I highly recommend simple, clean neutrals. To create the perfect timeless photos, wearing colors like white, black, beige, navy, and peachy tones will extend the life period of your photos for years to come.

I have created outfit guides for each season I will send over, if requested!
