FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?
I would best describe my style as "Easy Breezy Beautiful, Romantic and Fun"!  Seriously though, my images reflect my love of clean composition, beautiful light, and helping you to look naturally gorgeous! I'll be there to capture everything and yet I hope you barely remember seeing me. There is a delicate balance of knowing when to stay back and capture the action that unfolds or when to step in and take advantage of magical light and situation. 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR WEDDING?
My calendar fills up quickly so you should plan to book about 18 months in advance.  If you are planning on a shorter time frame, please EMAIL ME to check availability! 
Please note, that we are also Aitutaki's only resident Professional Wedding Photographer.

DO YOU DO VIDEO TOO?
No, I provide photography only.  I prefer to do the absolute best job and provide the absolute highest quality of work for you, and there is no way that I could do that if I were trying to do two things at the same time.  I am solely focused at your wedding on capturing beautiful photos that you will preserve in your album and frame on your walls.  I would be more than happy to give you referrals of excellent videographers who share a similar mindset.

I REALLY WANT YOU TO STAY UNTIL THE END OF MY WEDDING. WILL YOU?
Of course!  My packages include capturing your day from the end of your hair/makeup through the last major event of the reception.  Additional coverage is always available no matter how much more you would like covered.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE MY PHOTOS?
All images process will take 8 - 10 weeks, but we will send a few images via email within a day or two after the shoot for your pleasure to view.  Due to our internet speed, these images will be on low - medium resolutions.  

I DON’T PHOTOGRAPH WELL AND AM SUPER AWKWARD—CAN YOU HELP ME?
Yes, of course! I understand that you might not have experience being photographed and I'm here to help.  Through my easy shooing style and natural posing, I make sure that you look natural and lovely in your photos.  Some people take a little longer to warm up, and in those cases I make sure that you feel comfortable and relaxed while we are shooting. I promise, I make it painless and fun, and it won't be nearly as bad as you think!
