FAQ

WHAT TYPES OF SESSIONS ARE YOU CURRENTLY OFFERING?

I am currently offering a very limited number of weddings and seniors. At this time, I am not offering family, child, or maternity sessions.  I wish I was able to offer more sessions, but my family will always come first!


HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER?

It has been a privilege to capture your moments and memories since 2012!

WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?

Classic, playful, romantic. I aim to capture photos that are timeless and full of your genuine love and joy for one another. I love capturing raw emotion and little moments as the day unfolds. I provide fun, relaxed senior sessions where you feel comfortable and encouraged.


WHAT KIND OF LOCATIONS DO YOU TYPICALLY SHOOT AT?

I shoot at a variety of rural and urban outdoor locations in the Siouxland/Correctionville area. My favorite backgrounds are nature, but I’m always up for new and unique locations!

DO YOU TRAVEL AND ARE THERE MILEAGE FEES?

Yes, I travel!  There is a mileage fee of $0.50/mile over 30 miles from Correctionville.


WHEN DO YOU TYPICALLY SCHEDULE SESSIONS?

My favorite time to shoot is in the evening when the lighting is best. I aim to finish sessions 30 minutes before sunset. I’m not available on weekends or holidays as I’ll be spending as much time as possible with my family.

ARE THERE ANY EXTRA, HIDDEN FEES (OTHER THAN TAX/MILEAGE)?

No surprises! Everything is up front already.


CAN I BRING MY DOG?

Yes! Please allow for another person to come along to help supervise your pet while it’s not in photos.


DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?

There’s a $500 non-refundable deposit for Weddings. For all other sessions, there is no deposit required.


WHAT IF THERE IS BAD WEATHER?

If the forecast looks bad and it seems like we will need to reschedule, I will contact you the day of your session.  We'll see if it's possible to change the time of the session or if we need to reschedule altogether.


WHEN IS MY PAYMENT DUE?

Your payment is due the day of your session.


Wedding balances are due 1 month before your wedding date.


DO WE GET ALL OF THE IMAGES?

I’ll cull all of the images by deleting any photos that are not in focus, eyes closed, funny faces (because it happens!) and narrow it down to the best images.


HOW AND WHEN CAN I VIEW MY PICTURES AFTER THE PHOTO SESSION?

I provide a password protected online gallery with the option to order affordable prints from a professional printing lab. You may download images directly from this link as well. You’ll receive a Flash Drive with all of your images. You typically will have your wedding photos within 8 weeks, and your senior or engagement photos within 3 weeks.


DO YOU EDIT ALL OF THE IMAGES YOU DELIVER?

Absolutely! All images will be individually edited and ready for you to order prints.


WHAT IS YOUR EDITING STYLE AND EDITING PROCESS?

I like to keep photos as timeless as possible.  I primarily adjust the exposure and color giving images a nice, clean edit.  I will make adjustments to blemishes and will slightly soften the skin on close ups. Images you receive will be logo-free and ready to be printed.


DO WE GET PHOTO PRINT RELEASE?

Yes! You can order prints wherever you’d like using your Flash Drive. I recommend ordering directly from your link, or from www.mpix.com but you are welcome to order anywhere.


DO WE GET COPYRIGHT RELEASE?

Clients do not own Copyright Release and cannot alter or edit the images in any way (change to black and white, add text, crop, etc.). If you would like a particular image in black and white, please contact me so I can do that for you! TDP will use images for marketing purposes.


DO YOU TAKE ANY INDOOR PHOTOS?

At weddings, we’ll do some getting ready photos inside but if at all possible I like to do most of that outside to take advantage of the natural light. If the weather is not ideal, we’ll do the wedding photos inside. Although, it is really fun to grab some umbrellas and get some rainy shots!


DO YOU HAVE AN INDOOR STUDIO?

I do not have an indoor studio.  I enjoy shooting in the beauty of the great outdoors and taking advantage of good lighting!

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

I have two Canon cameras and a variety of professional lenses. I will bring along a couple of Speedlite flashes to use primarily at the reception, but I prefer to use natural light if at all possible as I prefer the natural look to flash. I also bring along some off camera flashes, just in case we have to do formals indoors.


I NOTICED YOU ARE BOOKED, DO YOU HAVE A LIST OF RECOMMENDED PHOTOGRAPHERS?

Absolutely! Please send me an email and I will send you my list of recommended photographers in the area.
