Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

HOW TO BOOK
Booking is simple. I will send an online contract to sign, obtain the retainer, and all is set. I require a 25% retainer (50% for travel weddings) due at booking with the remainder due just thirty days before the event. You can choose to pay the full remainder on the due date or opt for a payment plan. I accept checks, ACH payments, or credit cards.

WHEN TO BOOK
As soon as you know I am the one. Dates are reserved on a first come, first serve basis and are only held with a signed contract and retainer.

LOCAL WEDDINGS
I considered Knoxville and surrounding areas within 200 miles to be local, including Nashville, Chattanooga, and Asheville. I am happy to venture outside these areas for engagement sessions, couples photo shoots, weddings, and elopements with an additional travel fee.

DESTINATION WEDDINGS + ADVENTURE ELOPEMENTS
A custom package is built to fit the needs of the day and location. Couple pays one rate, and I take care of all the travel arrangements and accommodations. Passport is always current.

TRAVEL DATES
Get in touch to see if I’m close to desired location and avoid travel fees. If the destination is on my route, then I can serve local prices.

ICELAND
I’m offering no travel fees for all adventure couples sessions and weddings taking place in Iceland during 2019.

INSURANCE
Yes. I can send insurance certificate directly to the venue if needed.

SALES TAX
A sales tax rate of 9.75% is required if you live within the state of Tennessee.

TURNAROUND TIME
Weddings take approximately four weeks to deliver the full online gallery. Portrait sessions generally take two weeks for completion.
