The Lovestory

FINE ART & Documentary-Style Wedding Photography

Your love popped the question! Yay!! This is one of the most exciting times of your life, and can get extremely overwhelming. There are so many things to think about, vendors to book, and decor ideas swirling through your mind. Once a date and venue have been picked, most couples start on their photographer search. Your wedding day will be whirlwind - when all of the cake and food are eaten, last song played, flowers wilt, and decor returned - the only tangible part left are your photos or video (if you choose to have that). Your wedding day images should reflect who you are and the love between you, the way you are captivated in an embrace, and convey all of the strong, raw emotions you feel when you look back on the biggest day of your lives.

Frequently Asked Questions

ARE YOU INSURED?

I sure am! There are several policies to cover me, my clients, and my gear, as well as being a member of Professional Photographers of America. I can even provide proof of liability insurance to your venue, should they require it as part of their contract - it is very common.
 

CAN I SEE SOME FULL WEDDING GALLERIES?

Of course you can, and I'd be happy to! Just send me an inquiry, and ask in your message, then I will send you links to 2-3 different galleries with a variety of styles so that you can get a feel for what yours would look like from start to finish.
 

WHAT EQUIPMENT OR GEAR DO YOU USE?

I use a wide variety of gear, prepared for every situation, but here is a list of what I typically use during the course of photographing weddings and portraits: Canon DSLR cameras :: 35mm, 50mm. 85mm, 24-70mm, and 70-200mm lenses. Occasionally I will use - 100mm macro plus various backups and lighting equipment. I use a variety of equipment and bring backups.
 

DO YOU HAVE A PREFERRED VENDOR LIST?

Sure do! I send out my preferred list of vendors out after each client books their wedding with me. It includes businesses such as florists, hair stylists and makeup artists, cake bakers, DJ's, and so much more. These are all people I have worked with professionally at other weddings and highly recommend.
 

DO YOU CHARGE FEES FOR TRAVELING?

Travel to and from weddings and portrait sessions that are taking place within the state of Iowa, is complimentary. Travel outside the state of Iowa, across the US, and Destinations Worldwide, are on a per quote basis since the travel fee is based on the location I am traveling to and how long I will be there. For US-based Destinations, flight and hotel stay overnight is required. Worldwide Destinations are based around resort/hotel cost for a minimum of 3 days, flight, and all other travel expenses. If you're interested in a travel shoot, please inquire for an accurate quote.
 

WHAT IS YOUR IMAGE TURNAROUND TIME?

For weddings, you can expect your online gallery within 4-8 weeks, and for portrait sessions 1-3 weeks. This all depends on the season and how busy it is, but I try my best to get images out to my clients much sooner, when possible. After you have received your gallery, I will contact you to setup an in-person image viewing and ordering appointment, where you have the chance to purchase your favorite images as printed products. If distance is an issue, this can be done via phone or video call, as well.
 

I'M READY TO BOOK, HOW DOES THAT PROCESS WORK?

Great! This is what I love to hear! To start the booking process, you'll send me an inquiry with the information I need. We will chat about your plans and desires for the images, and then you can secure your date all online or we can meet up for coffee to discuss and go over everything. In order to book, I need a signed contract and 50% non-refundable retainer, which exclusively retains my services for your specific date. From there, I will begin session planning (and schedule your engagement session, if for a wedding), send out your online questionnaire from your very own client portal, and also checking in as your date approaches.
