frequently asked questions

why weddings?

You could say I'm a hopeless romantic and a party lover. I grew up reading everything I could get my hands on and watched every romantic comedy on television. I LOVE seeing what makes every relationship special and observing different personalities as they come together to form a unique bond only the two of you share! I also love to dance and coming from a huge family, I've attended tons of weddings. You bet I'll be dancing right there with you at your reception and making you feel excited ALL day long on your wedding day.

what gear do you use?

I have 4 Nikon D750s on me at all times on a wedding day in case one of them has an issue. I only shoot with prime lenses for artistic purposes, so I always have a 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, and 135mm on me as well. I use flash indoors when necessary with a speedlight on my camera. For editing, I use both Photoshop and Lightroom with my own custom editing presets!

do you include digital images with your packages? can I print my own photos?

I include a full gallery of 500-800 edited images and printing rights so you can make all your own prints!

do you have second shooters in your packages?

Yes! Although, I don't consider my second photographers assistants or second shooters. I pay my second photographers well because I want them to be my partner and add value to your day. My second shooters all have experience as a lead photographer on a wedding day and can handle any situation solo as well!

why are you so talented?

Thank you, thank you! 😉 After 8 years as a photographer and 5 years shooting weddings, I can confidently say I have enough experience to handle just about anything. Any lighting situation, any schedule mishap, any disaster – all of it! I have taken media courses in Photoshop and Lightroom, continue to expand my education by attending workshops, and upgrade my gear so that I always have the most up-to-date technology.

what do you charge for out of state weddings?

I travel for about 50% of my weddings and have packages built with all travel costs included in them already! My in-state Idaho packages start at $3,500. My out-of-state packages start at $4,400.

do you only shoot elopements?

NO! I have shot weddings with over 600 guests and as few as 2 guests. Ha. I can rock any wedding no matter the size.
