Frequently Asked Questions
HOW TO BOOK
Booking is simple. Once you know you are ready to book, I will send you a contract to sign online, obtain the retainer fee, and you will have your wedding photographer set. I require a 25% retainer (50% for destination weddings) due at booking with the remainder due just thirty days before the event. You can choose to pay the remainder all at once when it is due or opt for a payment plan, whichever is easier for you. I accept 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.
