For regular sessions, at the very latest, is 2-3 weeks. For Adventure shoots and elopements, it's around 3-5 weeks max. I allow a little extra time just incase of travel and we all know how life can happen so suddenly.
One thing I really focus on for my sessions is finding a place that you are familiar with or finding somewhere you've never been. Either way, I want it to be meaningful and an environment you love. If you need help, I will always help find somewhere that works for you!
I am based out of western Germany. There are sooo many beautiful options for locations in Germany, but I am always more than happy to travel to you, or document what you want, where ever you want!
I do travel back to Kentucky at least once a year, and do book shoots there, too.
There are travel fees, and it does depend on your location! If it's outside Germany, I will have to find flights and stay (in a hotel or Airbnb, along with car rentals or Uber costs). I'm up for staying with you and/or your family or sharing an Airbnb just to save some extra money where you can! If I am already traveling to that country, and you book a shoot, there will not be a travel fee!
Without a doubt I want what you wear to feel like you. No need to change into something you don't wear daily, but don't worry! After the session has been booked, I send a wardrobe guide/inspo so you have a little guidance! We will chat about it more before the session, too!
Delivering images that you love is very important to me. There's only one package I offer that has a maximum number of images delivered, and you will be able to buy the remaining amount if you choose to. For the rest of the sessions, I don't give a set amount of photos per package, because I don't want to cut out any moments from your session, but I will say, I never deliver less than 30 edited images! I will be shooting the whole duration of the session, so there will be sooo many images from start to finish. It's more important to me to deliver your memories, all of them, not just because it reached a specific number.
Each booking requires a nonrefundable retainer securing that date and our session. If we are needing to reschedule our shoot, there will be another nonrefundable retainer securing the new date. If we need to reschedule because of weather, or sickness, etc., then a new retainer is not necessary, but I love just embracing the weather we are given, especially for destination shoots, if there isn't time to delay the shoot hours later or the next day.
I don't offer discounts, but I am always willing to work with you. That doesn't mean I will cut my price and keep the same amount of value within the package, but I am willing to create a custom package if necessary.
Weddings are a such an important time in life, and I want to make sure I am able to serve you the best I can. With that being said, small, intimate, non-traditional weddings are the type I can best deliver with my documentary style of photography. So, yes, I do, but only take one or two a year.
