How long will my session last? Family, Baby, Boudour + Maternity: Up to 2 hours Engagement: Up to 3 hours Portrait: 1 hour Depending on what kind of shoot it is, we may need to budget time for wardrobe or location changes, which are absolutely welcomed. Whatever you envision I’ll endeavour to make happen! (Weddings packages are offered with different hours, but of course I will work within your vision and timeline for the day.)
What should I wear? The absolute most important thing is that you’re comfortable. Wear what you feel good in, as that will usually show through in the photos. Professional casual to semi-formal tends to show best. Clothes with texture and colour are great – think about what would look interesting, and try to co-ordinate styles a bit if you’re doing a couple or family shoot. (You don’t have to wear the same colours, but co-ordinate outfits that compliment each other.) Very important: Consider the weather during your shoot date, and make sure you’ll be warm/cool enough in whatever you wear!
How long does it take to get my photos back? It depends on the kind of shoot we’re doing. Engagement/Family/Portrait sessions are edited within 1-2 weeks. Weddings will take much longer as there are *many* more photos to sift through, select the best & edit – typically the turnaround rate will be within 4-6 weeks for weddings – often much sooner. Don’t worry, though – I’ll share some sneak peak photos as I edit.
How many photos do we get? You get a selection of the best shots on a downloadable web gallery and/or USB or DVD – the ones you look the best in, and the ones that make the most impact. I’ll provide these to you fully edited. Email me for more details!
Can you design albums for engagement and family sessions? Definitely! E-mail me for prices and images of sample albums!
What does your wedding day coverage package include? E-mail me for package details! email@example.com Prices vary depending on the package.
Do you have backup gear when shooting weddings? Yes, of course. I carry two cameras with me, several lenses, backup batteries, chargers and memory cards, and as I’m shooting my cameras are saving simultaneously onto two memory cards (using dual in-camera card slots) in case something goes wrong with one of the cards. After your wedding I also backup your photos onto at least two hard drives as I’m editing them. I understand how precious and fleeting these moments are and I take great precaution to ensure your photos are safe.
Will you travel? Absolutely, I will! I love to travel, and it would be my pleasure to meet you pretty much anywhere. Travel fees may apply if outside Toronto.
How long in advance should we book? There’s not really a set guideline, but I’d say 3 months in advance is great for an engagement, family or portrait session (to ensure we book the date you want), although a month or less in advance also sometimes works. For weddings, you’ll want to book further in advance – at least 6 months if possible to ensure your date is secured.
How much do you charge? Photo sessions begin at $175, weddings vary depending on the package, and I’m more than happy to discuss client ideas to provide a customized quote.
