find answers to frequently asked questions
When can we expect our full gallery?
Portraits are 2-4 weeks. Weddings are 4-15 weeks depending on the season.
How many photos will we get?
I will edit and provide all images with your final gallery. I cull out repeats, blinking, and test shots. In general (for weddings) you will receive 50-90 images per hour of coverage which completely varies depending on the type of day you have. Some weddings are low-key, some are jam-packed, so it can definitely vary!
Do you give us all the .RAW files?
The short answer is no, because you won’t need them or be able to process them without the proper software. What I do provide is high-resolution files of final, edited gallery.
How early should I contact you for my wedding date?
Photographers are typically the second or third vendor to be booked after the venue. Once you have your date, get in touch with me. I book up to 12 months in advance.
Do you offer Albums?
Yes! And they’re so perfectly luxurious! I encourage all couples to print their memories. Albums are handmade, with archival inks + paper right here in Canada. You will get to see samples at our meeting.
Do you offer engagement sessions?
Yes! In fact I highly recommend them. They are the perfect test run before the big day. Complimentary engagement sessions are included with two of my three wedding collections. I also offer them separate from wedding collections.
We don’t want an engagement session, can we swap it for anything?
The session is complimentary so if you really don’t want it (though I highly recommend it!) then you can opt-out, but it cannot be substituted for anything.
When should I book my photography session?
It’s recommended that you book Lifestyle sessions at least 8 weeks in advance to have sufficient time for us to plan the session together. Sessions normally take place on weekdays, and cannot be booked on peak season Saturdays.
Will you help us plan the timeline?
Yes, please! I always ask to be looped in on the timeline planning so that I can help you plan for light on the day. Usually we touch on this at the consult to figure out which collection best suits your wedding plans. After booking, all #PBECouples will get access to my exclusive wedding magazine. I ask for a final timeline two weeks prior to the date.
Do you offer videography?
While photographers use similar equipment there is a totally different skill set required. I personally offer photography, but would be happy to recommend a talented colleague that I have worked with before and fits your needs once we have finalized your photography needs!
Do you travel for photography?
Yes, and I love it! If you’re not sure if I will come to you, just ask.
Do you hold dates?
Bookings are only final once you have signed your contract and paid your non-refundable retainer. Dates are not held, and are on a first come first serve basis.
