What is a Creative Fee?
The Creative Fee covers the reservation of the date, preparation of the session, and my time at the session.
The creative fee is a non-refundable retainer, and does NOT apply to the collection fee. All digital images and products are sold separately. When you book a date and time with me, that means I cannot book another client for that date and time. If you cancel or do not show up, I have lost business that could have been filled. It's a guarantee that you will hold to the agreed upon session.
Until this is paid, your date and time are not secured.
You must select both, your story (the creative fee) and a collection.
What is a Collection Fee?
The collection fee covers the amount of digital images you wish to purchase. The top tier collections come with prints. You will be provided with a curated online gallery to select downloadable digital images, archival prints, wall-art, photo-books and more from the comfort of your home. You must select both, your story (the creative fee) and a collection.
How many pictures will we receive?
For weddings you will receive all edited images in an online gallery.
For all other sessions, the exact amount depends on which collection you select. You will be able to choose which images you would like for your collection via an online gallery. You may also have the option to upgrade your collection. If you choose the à la carte option, no images come with this, however, you will be able to select to buy any images you wish,
No prints come with the collections unless specified. However, I have made it incredibly easy for you to purchase prints through your online gallery.
When will we get our photos?
For weddings, the current turnaround time is within 6 weeks. For any other session, the turnaround is within 3 weeks. It is usually much quicker than this, but it really depends on the season.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I live in Cincinnati, Ohio and yes, I absolutely love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always find the cheapest way to come. I am an avid traveler and have become pretty great at finding the deals. I feel I am my most creative when traveling and experiencing new places.
What if I need more time than the creative fee covers?
I assure you that in most circumstances there is more than enough time to get the desired photos. However, if you would like multiple locations, multiple wardrobe changes, etc., additional time may be add at a standard rate of $125/hr. Please message me for a custom quote!

Do I have to order prints through you?
We all need options! Therefore, whichever high resolution images you have purchased, may be printed elsewhere. Keep in mind, I do not guarantee the color accuracy or quality of images printed elsewhere.
I do offer professional-quality prints, albums, wall art, holiday cards, birth announcements, and more! I highly recommend them. Every print from me is heritage quality and meant to last many generations. You can conveniently print directly from your online gallery.
What is a Micro Wedding?
In simple terms, a micro wedding is an abbreviated celebration of marriage that has only a handful of invited guests (commonly 20 or less), is shorter in duration and is more simple in format, relaxed in atmosphere, and less stressed to organize than a traditional wedding.
How do you photograph weddings?
I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. I'll send you a guide to help you organizing your day, the best moments for the couple photos, the different lights... and it's really exciting for me to receive photos of your dress, shoes, invites, or anything and everything you want to share! On your wedding day, all I want to capture is the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your wedding unique. On your wedding day, I'm passionate about capturing all those intimate moments and details. That's why I've decided to focus my business more towards elopements and micro weddings.
