She gives you so much more than amazing photos, but an experience, and little goodies along the way! She responds to questions quickly, intelligently, and knows so much about weddings in general! She is truly a gem, and I would highly recommend her."

Will you photograph our engagement session?

Photography Questions

back to photography questions

All wedding collections include a complimentary engagement session! Why? For a couple of reasons, the first being I get to meet you! I cherish my time during engagement sessions because that’s when I truly get to interact with my couples and form real friendships with them!! Your engagement session is more about getting you two comfortable in front of my camera than it is about making sure that you have a full gallery of portraits. It’s a vital part of the wedding experience as a whole because during your engagement session I’m going to teach you about posing and the foundational elements that make my clients look so natural and genuine in all of their portraits! If you show up on your wedding day without knowing how I work and my posing system, we’ll have to take 20 minutes of portrait time on the wedding day to rush through this content and hope that your nerves die down! I want you to feel like a trusted friend is showing up on your wedding day, not just the photographer that you hired.

Will you take our posed family photos?

Photography Questions

back to photography questions

Of course! While I don't showcase them on my website and rarely on the blog, the posed family photos are a necessary part of your wedding day. I will supply you with our sample shot list of family groupings and encourage you to give me the names of who I’ll be meeting, as well as any difficult family situations I should be sensitive to. I generally encourage keeping these lists short and sweet with immediate family members, in-laws, and grandparents, and if you're going to add to these lists, know to add ~2 minutes on to your timeline for each grouping. It's also imperative that you let everyone on your shot list know where and when to be for these photos, as we often don't have a spare 10 minutes to track down Uncle Bob at the bar.

Will all the photos be edited?

Photography Questions

back to photography questions

Every image in your wedding gallery is edited! I do not deliver unedited images.

How long will it take to receive my wedding gallery?

Photography Questions

back to photography questions

Wedding photos are typically received within 8 weeks after your wedding. However, a dedicated featured blog post of highlights from your wedding day will be available the week after your wedding day! :) My couple get really excited for this and will sometimes purchase the wifi package at their honeymoon destination just so they can see themselves featured on the blog!

How will my friends and family see the photos once they're finished?

Photography Questions

back to photography questions

Hopefully you'll send them to everyone! :) Once I’m done editing everything, I upload your photos to a password protected gallery. All you need to do is send out the URL and password. This gives you the control over who can see your photos and if you'd prefer to utilize a custom password, just let me know and I'll change it. Many of my couples put the link and password on Facebook, but others prefer to keep it more private.

Can I share my photos on Facebook / Instagram?

Photography Questions

back to photography questions

I mean, it isn't official until it's on Facebook, right? You are more than welcome to share your images or video on social media, I just ask one small favor! Would you mind crediting my work and not adding any filters or edits to it? I know it seems silly, but this is such an incredible way to say, "Hey, we hired Danielle and we love what she did!" I am proud to say that referrals are my main source of bookings, so when you credit me, it helps my business immensely!

I’ve never planned a wedding before, is there anything I need to know about wedding photography!?

Photography Questions

back to photography questions

I promise to help you plan your day - I’ll send you a 65+ page wedding guide that spills everything I’ve learned about weddings, as well as help location scout for portraits, and plan an efficient photography timeline so that you have the best light, and the least amount of stress.

How long are your highlight films?

Videography Questions

back to videography questions

My base package offers a minimum of a 5 minute highlight film. You have the option to upgrade to longer highlight films (from 7-20 minute options) but a decision on that would need to finalized prior to the wedding day.

Do you offer full length films of the ceremony, toasts, and first dances?

Videography Questions

back to videography questions

These options can definitely be added to your wedding videography package! I will film them regardless even if you didn’t add it to your package because I still will use moments from these events in your highlight film.

Do you offer social media films?

Videography Questions

back to videography questions

Yes! Most couples add on an instagram trailer to their package.

How long until after our wedding will we receive our film?

Videography Questions

back to videography questions

The industry standard is 4 months, my contract states 8 weeks.

How do you deliver our film(s)?

Videography Questions

back to videography questions

Digitally through a private password-protected client portal.

Can we pick our own music?

Videography Questions

back to videography questions

I always custom select a song for each one of my films. You’ll receive a song that perfectly reflects your wedding day, and reminds you of nothing else except your day - because it’s 100% your song. We’ll go over music preferences before the wedding day so that I can learn what styles of music you like, what songs have been important to you as a couple in the past, what music from other wedding videos you’ve liked, how you’re imagining your own wedding film, etc. On the day of your wedding, I pay close attention to the music and personality of everything going on. I use all of this information to find a song that best reflects each moment of your day. Sometimes it’s the most unexpecting song that really conveys the emotion of a moment.

Do you mic us for the ceremony?

Videography Questions

back to videography questions

With your approval, I discreetly put a lapel mic on the officiant, groom, and possibly the bride. Even if there is reliable audio being provided for you at your venue, audio mishaps are far too common and it’s better to be safe than sorry. With a mic placed on several people then it is always guaranteed that I have awesome quality audio for your film.

Do you use lights at the reception?

Videography Questions

back to videography questions

It depends on your venue and what’s allowable, but I do bring lights with me in case I need extra light to see faces during toasts and first dances. They are not terribly distracting and photographers love them because it’s consistent light and usually works better than their on-camera flashes.

This is your story

It’s your legacy, your story, your memories preserved for generations to come. This is something I do not take lightly. Looking beyond the pretty bridal bouquet or color of the bridesmaids dresses, the core of my work will be documenting your emotions from the entire day; the joy, the laughter, and the tears. The images or video I capture will be passed down in your family for generations, so when your grandchildren ask you questions, you can show them where it all began.
