Wedding FAQ’s

What’s your style?

My style is a mix of fine art and documentary. Your photographs will have a dreamy, bright, authentic quality showcasing the emotional moments of irreplaceable importance,and all the little in-between moments too.  I will document your day  as it unfolds, infusing it with my own romantic interpretation of it.  I can easily direct you into natural looking poses, if you feel uncomfortable and am more than happy to organize family formal portraits.

How many pictures will you take?

For each hour of wedding coverage, you can expect to receive 50-100 images.

Does every wedding collection include high resolution images on a flash drive?

Yes it's your day and your memories, you deserve to have them all. 

Will I be able to make my own prints from the images on the flash drive?


When will my proofs, prints, or wedding album be ready?

Proofs are ready for viewing in your online gallery 8-10 weeks after your wedding.  After you choose your favorite images, your fine art prints are mailed within 2 weeks.  Albums take 4-6 weeks to arrive after you’ve signed off on the final design.

Will the proofs I see be retouched, or does that happen after I choose my favorites?

All the proofs you see will be professionally and beautifully edited before you see them.

Should we do a first look and what is it?

I’m a big fan of first looks, but ultimately it’s up to the bride and groom.  First looks are when the bride and groom decide to see each other before the ceremony, usually in a gorgeous location.  First looks are very intimate and tend to allow for more time for relaxed couple’s shots.  Think of it as a mini love photography session before saying your, “I Do’s.”  Most of my couples really like the first look because after the ceremony, they only need to focus on family formals and wedding party photographs, and then it’s off to their reception to have a grand time.

I’m a destination bride, can we Skype?

Absolutely, I insist! :) 

Who will be photographing my wedding?

Myself and the love of my life! If Ivan isn’t available, one of my fellow lead wedding photographers will take his place.

Do you have pictures of entire weddings I can see?

Yes, go to and click on any of the couple's links to view their weddings or love sessions. 

How can I make sure I look good in my photos?

Leave some breathing room in your wedding day schedule.  Relax.  Remember you’re marrying the love of your life.  Get a good night’s sleep and drink lots of water the day before.

How far out should I book you?

We tend to book out at least 6 months in advance.

How do I book you?

Step One: Contact Me see if your date is still available.

Step Two: Meet for coffee or schedule a Skype date!

Step Three: Choose your favorite wedding collection.

Step Four: To officially book your wedding day, a signed contract and your deposit are due.  Your remaining balance is due 30 days before your wedding.

Portrait FAQ’s

What can I expect from our lifestyle session?

I adore creating meaningful experiences for creative, adventurous people in search of joy.  I believe in the irreplaceable value of fine art prints that document your unique story in a truly authentic way.  I aim for your client experience to be unforgettable, ridiculously fun, and easy.  Think of me as an old friend who can see the best in you, right from the start.

What should I wear?

Wear a pretty sun dress or your favorite pair of jeans and your go to T-shirt. Neutral or pastel tones with bright, colorful accessories tend to photograph well at the beach. Thin layers can visually add interest to your outfit.  Try and coordinate colors but maybe not in an all white shirt, all khaki pants kind of way ;)

Where will my session take place? How long will it last?

I am on-location natural light photographer, so I go wherever you go. Living on a tropical island affords us a lot of stunning backdrops, whether it's the ocean and sand you crave, lush green foliage, or a fun urban feel.  Mini photography sessions last 30 minutes.  Full photography sessions last up to 90 minutes.

What time of day is best for pictures?

My favorite time of the day for photos is known as magic hour, which takes place around sunrise or sunset.

How much is a portrait session?

Portrait sessions start at $599.

What’s included in the portrait session?

All collections include an online gallery and free instant digital downloads of your professionally edited high resolution images. Not to mention  a pre-session consultation to shape your vision for the shoot, creative direction during your portrait session, laughter, song-singing, exploring, and sometimes even a cookie or latte.

What’s so awesome about your prints?

My fine art prints are professionally printed on high grade quality papers.  I use professional labs where the color and contrast seen in your digital images translates correctly and quite beautifully, into a tangible keepsake that  you can have and hold for years to come.

What products do you offer?

In your online gallery, you can purchase fine art prints, DVD's, coffee table style albums, fine art albums, and acrylic prints, and canvas wraps in various sizes.
