FAQ

I’m not super comfortable being in front of the camera. How do you put your subjects at ease?

I’m happy to give posing guidance! If you don’t know what to do with your hands or how to stand, I can take the lead and give plenty of direction in order to make you (and your partner or family) look flawless

Where do you shoot? Do we pick the location for sessions or do you?

You’re welcome to choose a location or if you’d like some suggestions, I have a huge list of different beautiful locations all over the Bay Area and am happy to do research for any other part of the world where you’d like to be photographed. If there’s an aesthetic or environment where you’d like to shoot, chances are I know just the right spot!

Do you offer wardrobe guidance or wardrobe changes?

Absolutely! I offer complimentary wardrobe guidance to all my clients and will happily accommodate any wardrobe changes you’d like to make during a session. I also have a portable changing station so even if we’re on the beach or in the mountains you can still have privacy while changing.

Where are you located?

I live in Alameda, next to San Francisco in Northern California.  I am open to shooting worldwide and love to travel.


How much does it cost to travel to our wedding?

It's actually much less expensive than you might think.  I have shot events across the U.S. and internationally and the travel can be very affordable.  If your wedding is 2 hours or further from the San Francisco Bay Area, please just ask for a travel quote when you inquire.


How do we book you?

Send me an email to see if your date is available or receive a custom proposal by filling out this form for weddings or this form for all other events.  If you'd like to chat further you can always schedule a video or phone call with me by clicking here.


Can we meet before the big day?

Of course!  I love meeting my clients before the big day.  If it's not possible because of distance, I'm happy to set up a Zoom or Skype call which you can schedule here.


When will we receive our photographs?

I offer a one week turnaround rate for all my clients.  I know how eager you are to see and share your images so I always make time to edit and deliver your images within one week after shooting.  


How do you edit your photos?

I use Lightroom for general editing, then Photoshop for more detailed touch-ups.  I color correct, apply filters and remove blemishes, flyaway hairs and background distractions.


Do you offer videography services?

Yes!  I do offer videography and combined video and photo services. 


How about printing?

I can print whatever you'd like and am happy to give guidance on formatting, sizing and placement within your home.  


Are you available on my date?

Feel free to send me a message.  I'll check my calendar and get back to you ASAP


I’d love to book, but I live in New York or Florida or Paris or Rome. Will you travel this far?

Absolutely.  I love to travel and have travelled all my life.  I have lived in France and have also visited the UK, Ireland, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, Ireland and many US states.  Getting on board a plane is one of my favorite things to do!


How much is the deposit? Is it refundable and how quick will I have to pay it?

The deposit is 30% of the final cost of our session or event.  It is non-refundable and is requested to be paid in advance in order to reserve the time.


When do I need to pay the final amount?

The final balance is due at the end of shooting time.  For weddings, I accept payment the following day. 


I have questions for you that are not listed here, how can I get in touch?

Please reach out and send me an email, I would love to connect and answer any questions you may have.  You can also schedule a call with me here if you'd like to connect via phone or Zoom.
