The questions below are some of the most asked by future clients. Read through them to get a taste of my approach.

Call or email me to setup a one-on-one consultation and we’ll design your perfect day!

Q: Do all of your packages come with a second shooter?

A: No, my standard packages do not all include a second shooter. However, I offer add-ons for ½ and full day second shooters with all of my packages.

Q: How far in advance do I need to book?

A: Ideally, as soon as you book the venue. If you’re running super late, let’s chat! I may be able to squeeze you in tomorrow!

Q: Do you offer elopement photography?

A: Yes, we love to photograph elopements and courthouse weddings! They’re one of my favorite events to shoot because of the intimacy of the gathering.

Q: Are you a proposal photographer?

A: YES! I love documenting the moment someone says yes. Send me a note or give me a call, and let’s talk about how I can capture your show-stopping proposal.

Q: What does equality minded mean to you?

A: Photos for LGBT couples. Mixed race couples. Really, any couple that feels their love may subject them to discrimination or unfair treatment. Love is love.

Q: I don’t see many photos of cultural weddings in your portfolio. Are you open to shooting an ethnic wedding? Like an Indian wedding, Korean wedding, or Nigerian wedding?

A: Absolutely! Every wedding type is welcome!

Q: Do you work with pets?

A: Definitely! From labs to bearded dragons, we love furry and scaly and feathery friends!

Q: How far outside of Dallas/Ft. Worth will you travel? How much does it cost?

A: We love to travel, just send us a note. Costs will be decided when we finalize your wedding package.

Q: What happens if Godzilla steps on your car?

A: I slay him with my #girllboss powers. I kid, I kid. In all seriousness, this is in my emergency policy, and it will be outlined in our contract as well:

I will do my best to find a replacement photographer, but if unable to do so you will receive a full refund.

Q: I’m ready to chat. What now?

A: Check out my blog on 18 questions to ask potential wedding photographers. And let the fun begin!
