GOT QUESTIONS? I'VE GOT ANSWERS
HERE ARE THE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS I GET!
Please take a moment to read through them and
don't hesitate to reach out with any more!
Where are you based out of? Do people ever travel to you for shoots?
Do you ever travel for work? For destination weddings, elopements, photo sessions? How does covering travel expenses work?
Yes, I do and I love it! Some photographers do set travel fees, I don’t. I just have you pay for the bare minimum (flight, transportation, stay), I cover the rest. I’m also open to staying with you, your family, camping or sharing an AirBnb with you to help save you $. You can estimate costs by checking how much hotels/AirBnbs typically cost in the area we will be staying, how much roundtrip flights are from Paris airports.
How do you describe your style?
Well, I want these photos to feel like YOU. I will play off of your personality and/or relationship so you really see yourself when looking back on your photos. It's not about how it looks, but how it feels.
What's your turnaround time?
For a photo shoot, I pride myself on delivering the full gallery in 3 weeks or less. For elopements/weddings, 10 weeks or less. It depends on how much I shoot, how busy I am, my travel schedule, and the holidays. I know the wait for your gallery is the worst, but I want to deliver photos in their best form. Please be patient! I try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image needs. That being said, rush service (24-48 hours online delivery only for photo shoots) is available depending on my schedule.
Do you give RAW unedited images?
How many images do you include? Do you deliver all the photos you take?
Each one of my packages varies in how many images are delivered, but I’ll always include plenty of images of everything I capture. I don’t like to give a cutoff number because I don’t believe in withholding any images from you to get you to pay more like some photographers do. These are your memories! I promise to capture them give you more than enough images to remember this time in your lives. That being said, if you still really want a number, you can expect to get at least 30 photos for each hour of photo shoot. For elopements and mini weddings, it's abviously more than that.
How do your payment schedules work?
Can I alter/edit the photos I get?
How will I receive my photos?
Pictures will be delivered to you watermark-free in high resolution print-ready digital format by online private gallery. You have the rights to all images to print, post, and share with your families.
Will I get some photos in black & white?
Yes, sure! I absolutely LOVE black and white! The other images will be edited in the style you see in my portfolio. A bit grainy with warm tones.
Can you photoshop us?
I believe in promoting self love and body positivity, so I don’t alter the way you look other than skin blemishes or anything temporary that would not normally be there (bruise, scrape, acne etc unless you’d like me to keep it the photos). If you’re especially self conscious about something, please let me know as I’ll be sure to be extra aware of that while I’m posing you.
What if there's bad weather?
I always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way, as it’s beautiful and unique in photos. If it is harsh enough that it would make for a shitty time at our shoot and I can reschedule (or ruin my gear), then we totally will!
What should I bring along with me for a photo shoot in Paris?
Our goal is to move around as easily as possible, so it would be smart to bring only the necessary belongings, like your phone, wallet, lipstick in case you wear it. The little the better. I am a stalker and love to take photos of the in betweens, but it's hard if you are carrying a yellow backpack.
What should I wear?
How do we get around in the city?
Paris is a walkable city, and some photo shoot locations might be close to another. However, for most of the main locations it's better to use Uber or taxis (G7 app). The prices are similar for both transportation means, but I tens to prefer taxis is during the rush hour times when they can use the bus lanes and can be more efficient in the traffic.
Will my photos be published on your website and social media?
Probably. I take many more photos than I can post on my social media. So only a few works will be published. Now, if you'd like to keep your photos private, just let me know and I won't show them.
Do you offer discounts?
