frequently asked questions
Q: I WOULD LIKE YOU TO PHOTOGRAPH MY WEDDING, HOW DO I START THE PROCESS?
A: Reach out to me via my contact form (the rest of my contact information is there as well). After we have established that I am not yet booked on your date, we'll meet for coffee or drinks - you let me know what is more your style. When we meet in person (if possible, I have so many clients coming internationally to get married here in Kelowna and the Okanagan), we'll chat more about you, your love story and what ever questions you have for me will get answered. Once you decide to move forward with me as your photographer, I have you sign a contract and pay your retainer fee, and you can check "find an amazing wedding photographer" off of that ever growing list.
Q: HOW MUCH WILL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY COST?
A: The most popular collection and full day coverage is $2800. If you only need me for a few hours or you're eloping I'm happy to find something that works for you. I'm always happy to customize, you just have to ask.
Q: HOW MUCH IS YOUR RETAINER?
A: The retainer is $750. One month before the wedding your remaining balance is due. Payment plans are available.
Q: HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO WE NEED TO BOOK?
A: 6 months to 1.5 years. But if you're an on-the-fly, let's-do-it-now type of person like myself, check with me for availability.
Q: ARE YOU GOING TO BE THE ONE SHOOTING OUR WEDDING?
A: Yes. You are hiring me to be there!
Q: WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
A: I am a Kelowna Wedding Photographer, within the Okanagan (British Columbia, Canada), but my passport is ready! Generally speaking there are no travel fees involved for super cool destinations.
Q: DO YOU INCLUDE DIGITAL IMAGES?
A: Sure do. All of my collections include digital images via 10 year, online, password protected download gallery.
Q: WHAT ABOUT ALBUMS? DO YOU SELL ALBUMS?
A: My favourite!!! I include Canadian handmade heirloom albums. I even offer Canadian handmade parent albums for your parents and/or grandparents.
Q: WE DON'T LIVE IN KELOWNA, IS THIS A PROBLEM?
A: Definitely not! The majority of my clients do travel from outside of Kelowna, so not to worry, you'll still be taken care of.
Q: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
A: A maximum of 6 weeks for your digital photos to be ready. Your hand assembled album will be ready within 6 weeks of you approving your album proof.
Q: TIMELINES... WE NEED TIMELINE HELP.
A: I thrive on timelines, I will always offer to help my couples with their timelines - not to worry!
