How do we buy prints?
I use a professional printing lab and I customize every order to fit your unique needs! There is no print minimum for simple sessions, but there is a minimum for the deluxe sessions. You can find more information HERE

Do you edit your pictures yourself?

Absolutely! I have a limited number of spots available each month, that way I can provide the highest quality images for all of my clients. Some photographers fill up their entire month from start to finish, then send off the images for post-processing, which is another great alternative! But I love editing (almost as much as I love taking the pictures) and I take pride in knowing my clients are getting the best that they can from me!


Do you work with a second photographer?

Only if requested by the Bride & Groom. For all sessions, I am the only photographer you will have! You can find additional pricing for adding a second photographer HERE


What are your travel rates?

I travel for free anywhere within a 50 mile radius 

from my home/studio in St. Peters, MO. 

Additional Fee required outside of the 50 mile radius. 

Please Contact Me with any questions regarding traveling expenses.


Why can't I get all of the images you took from my session?

Just like a Chef wouldn't give a customer raw chicken,​ I do not provide any of my Clients with RAW images. This doesn't just mean they're "unedited," these are the digital negatives, and without expensive software and the knowledge to use it, the RAW files aren't usable. While my images won't hurt you like raw chicken might, these images represent my brand, and the entire process is what you are hiring me to do! :) 


When will I receive my pictures?

Headshots: Within 7 Business Days

All Other Sessions: 2-4 Weeks
Weddings: 4-6 weeks
Additional Fee for Rush Orders, Contact Me for more info.

When should I book my session?

ASAP! I book one full calendar year in advanced, but I can pencil in dates. Once that time or day is booked with a non-refundable retainer fee, I can no longer offer it to anyone else. Interested in booking a session for 2018 or 2019? BOOK NOW

Where do you photograph most of your sessions?

I LOVE photographing outside the most, in all weather types, even in the snow! If my camera can work, then so can I! I also like shooting in-home Lifestyle sessions, because they can bring a sense of intimacy and add a unique and personal touch to your shoot! I also offer "studio" options. I have portable backdrops and lights that I can place anywhere that has an outlet!

How do you design the photo album we receive?

I take the artistic liberty to create and design a personalized album that can be a family heirloom for decades to follow. This is the same professional printing lab I order prints through, that way you get the same high-quality prints every single time. Each Album is a 6x4 Softcover Panoramic book, with a lay-flat and seamless design that will look great on any coffee table!

I see you offer Boudoir, why don't I see a Gallery for that?

Boudoir is very unique and intimate, and some people feel uncomfortable viewing this style. If you are very interested in a booking a Boudoir session with me, I can send you a link to a private online gallery. Serious Inquiries Only Please.
