How many Images will I receive?
I don’t limit sessions or weddings to a set number of images. There are many variables that tie into the number you receive: the # of combos on your list, the # of locations we visit, the amount of time you book me for, etc. I can say with confidence that you will receive a gallery that is spilling with beautiful moments.
When will my gallery be ready?
For sessions: It truly depends on the season, and how much I have booked at that time. I aim to post previews within the first week. Full galleries are completed between 2-4 weeks. This depends on how busy each season becomes. My busy season tends to begin May through October. Please be patient, as I'm only one gal behind Hello Dolly :)
For weddings: This is something we will chat about during our first meeting together. You will also see a preview posted within 1 week of your wedding date.
Where are you based?
I live in Taylors Falls and also have a photo studio here! However, I shoot all over Minnesota & Wisconsin and am happy to travel wherever you & your loved ones are located!
How long have you been in business?
I took my first clients in 2012. I thought it would be a fun one time thing, but it quickly blossomed into the business I love today.
Can you edit my photos like so-and-so?
No. Much like any other artist, I can only show up with my own artistic style. Please make sure to view my website and Instagram to make sure I fit your vision.
Can you photoshop me thinner?
A blemish, spill, or cut, sure. I can photoshop those minor details out, no problem! Your body as a whole? I don't feel comfortable and won't edit any body thinner. You are beautiful just the way you are!
Do you bring a second shooter to weddings?
You bet! Second shooters are wonderful for so many different reasons. Each wedding collection will include a second shooter.
How long have you been photographing weddings?
I have been photographing weddings for the past 6 years. My first wedding was in 2013. I thought It would be my only one! I am so lucky that it was with such a sweet and caring couple. It was a great entry into wedding photography. My 2nd shooter was my best friend from college, and by the end of the night people were asking for our business card!
How many weddings have you photographed?
By the end of 2021, I will have photographed 59 weddings. The most I have taken on in a year was 17 (14 for Hello Dolly, and 3 second shot alongside other photogs).
I enjoy weddings very much! However, I have learned that I thrive best with 5-10 weddings per year. The remainder of my time is spent booking a variety of family photos (maternity, newborn, etc.), senior, collaborative, and other small events.
How would you describe your photography style?
Vibrant, energetic, and joy-filled! During parts of a session or wedding, you'll find me up close, while other times I hang back a bit and watch how you allow moments to unfold. When taking "posed" photos, I try to make those as UN-posed as I can. I want to uncover your natural smile & laughter. So, maybe I have you do a little hip bumpin', or tickle fight! Or, perhaps we turn up the music and dance those nerves away! Whatever we do, I try create an opportunity for you to feel comfortable and yourself.
