Q. What counts as an elopement?
A. Elopements are small, very very small. Maximum 15 people, this also includes people that might be at a reception. An elopement reception would be for example in someone backyard or dinner at a restaurant. If you have more questions to see if your wedding would count as an elopement feel free to inquire with some details and I'll let you know if that'll count or not.
Q. What is print credit mean in your product packages?
A. Print Credit (P.C.) means you have chosen to purchase at least that amount of print products. Print products are pretty much any products that is not a book or album. So paper prints, fine art prints, canvas, metal prints and etc... So if you know you want some canvas prints button sure what size or how many, this is a good way to promise yourself you'll get those canvases but don't have to choose exactly what you want before you see your photos.

A. Not usually. You purchase a block of time. If there is some downtime in-between pieces of the day I will photograph decoration details and venue scenery as much as I can. If there is a lot of time in-between parts of the wedding day I would be happy to chat about it and see if it's possible.
Q. Do you have a space to do Boudoir? my bedroom isn't all that glamorous...
A. Absolutely. It's a rented space, a beautiful space with lots of natural white light. There's a bed with white sheets and comforter and some elegant and soft other pieces of furniture as well. It photographs wonderfully.
