FAQ

We want our families included, is that okay?

100% yes. Eloping isn’t about discluding people you love, it’s simply about being intentional and present on your wedding day, while ditching random traditions that don’t mean a thing to you. Your family is absolutely welcome, whether you want to have them at the ceremony, or have a celebration in the evening or even the following day. Elopements usually have under 5 guests, while small/micro weddings can include up to 50 people. My pricing doesn’t increase if you choose to invite your favorite people.

DO YOU HELP WITH THE PLANNING? WE DON’T KNOW HOW TO ELOPE. 

YES! Yes yes yes. I will help you dream up the perfect day. I will help you with choosing a location, I can connect you to local vendors anywhere in the world, and I will create a stress-free timeline for you two that will ensure maximum enjoyment. I will help you with what to pack, what shoes to wear, how to stay warm, how to keep your makeup looking bomb after hiking a mountain, and lots more. If you are having a wedding with over 10 guests, I definitely recommend a planner to help with food and other details.

HOW DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT?

When you’re ready to book with me, I’ll send over a contract and an invoice. A $1,500 non-refundable retainer is due to secure the date, and the balance must be paid in full 30 days prior to your wedding. I am always happy to create a flexible payment plan if you prefer to break up the payments. You can do a bank transfer (preferred) or you are also able to pay by debit/credit card.

HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES AND HOW MANY ARE INCLUDED?

Within 4 weeks of your wedding day, you will receive a beautiful online gallery that will contain all of the best fully-edited, high-resolution images. You will be able to share, download, and print directly from the gallery. Since every wedding is quite different, no two galleries will have the same number of images. In my experience, I generally deliver 50-100 images per hour of coverage.

WHAT IS YOUR BACKUP SYSTEM?

Good question! This is so important. I shoot on two camera bodies for every session/wedding. Each camera contains two memory card slots, so if one memory card were to fail, it’s already backed up to another memory card. Once I get home or back to my hotel/air bnb, I upload all of your images to two different hard drives, and I don’t erase the memory cards until your gallery is delivered. Your photos will be stored in 4 different places, safe and sound.

DO YOU DELIVER RAW UNEDITED IMAGES?

I don’t. If you love my images, you’re most likely drawn to the emotion, composition, and editing. Editing is a huge part of my process and without it, the images are simply unfinished.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE HAVE TO RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL OUR WEDDING?

If you have to reschedule your wedding, the retainer you made will count towards the new date, as long as it is scheduled within 6 months of the original date, UNLESS I have had to turn down another couple due to being booked on your original date. If you have to cancel your wedding, the retainer is legally non-refundable.
