Why have a destination wedding or elopement?
Nowadays, many couples opt to forgo the traditional and often extravagant and expensive weddings in favor of a more intimate gathering at a destination they love. Destination weddings and elopements allow couples to extend their celebration from four hours to four days (or however long you see fit), while creating a lifetime of memories with their close friends and family.
Do I need to give you a shot list?
When you have your consult and book me as your wedding photographer, I send you a few questionnaires to get a better grasp of exactly what you are wanting. I LOVE detail shots and couple shots, which is why destination and elopement weddings are my favorite. It gives me more time to connect with my couple, while getting all the fun details and candid shots. The only list I have officially is a family list, because I like to know names ahead of time. This makes it easier to get through those photos hassle free! All of this is covered in the contract, consult, and the questionnaires I send you.
Is travel included with your pricing?
No, it is not, but every wedding is different! I base the price on the amount of coverage, where it is taking place, if I need to bring an assistant, and a few other variables. All of these are covered before you book, though, so there are no surprises!
We wish we could meet you, but we don't live in Colorado Springs, how do we know you are a good fit?
The majority of my couples don't have the pleasure of meeting me in person, so in that instance I love to meet and chat over Skype, Facetime, or Zoom! I want my clients to feel like they know me, and have a good sense of how I work, before I show up to their wedding!
What is the turnaround time for our wedding and when can we expect our photos?
Because I take the time to go through, edit, and make sure all the photos are exactly right, completion takes about 4-6 weeks. Once finished, your online gallery will be made available to you, so that you and your family and friends can see your stunning photos!
