What should I wear to my session?
I always tell my clients to wear something that makes them feel comfortable and confident. And by comfortable I don't mean wear sweats. :) Sometimes if you wear something you wouldn't normally wear it makes you feel uncomfortable and that can show through to the pictures. But if you're wearing something that makes you feel empowered and that makes you feel awesome, that also shows through to the pictures!

Do you travel?
Yes! If you're planning a wedding (or even just have a cool idea for a engagement session location) out of town, out of state or in another country, feel free to bring me with you! I do charge a travel fee that reimburses me for any travel expenses. Each travel fee is calculated specifically for the required travel for your event (plane fare, lodging, rental car, etc.)
Do you pick the location of our session or do we?
If you have a location in mind, want to go back to the location you proposed, or just like the look of a location, please let me know I'd love to accommodate that! (keep in mind that some locations have photography restrictions or photography fees) But if you're at a loss I'd be happy to suggest a location, if I don't have one immediately in mind I will do research to find a great backdrop for our session!
Will my photos be edited?
Yes, every single one! I go through each of your images and make sure they're exactly how I intend them to look!
Do you have backup equipment?
Yes! I have multiple camera bodies, memory cards, batteries, etc. in case anything were to go wrong. Let's hope it doesn't come to that though!
Do you have a back up photographer in case of an emergency?
This is a question I get from most of my couples. And it's a good question! Unfortunately due to the nature of the business it's hard to book someone as a backup. The people that I would trust to capture your day are usually booking their own weddings*. If a major emergency came up last minute I do have a network of local photographers that I can reach out to to find someone to take over. I want to stress that this has never been an issue, I've never missed a wedding. I do not take your big day lightly!
*If you are choosing a package with a second shooter, that photographer will be booked in advance.
How do you choose your second photographers?
All of the second/associate photographers that I bring with me are awesome and talented. Most of them have their own established business of their own, so they know what they’re doing and have plenty of experience. For that reason I usually don’t book them until 2-4 months before the wedding so that they are able to book their own weddings. Then if they have that date open they will come shoot with me (and vise versa! I love to second shoot!) I do have a few photographers that I love to work with consistently. But if my usual associates are unavailable I have a large network of local photographers in Milwaukee and Chicago to reach out to!
