1) WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I shoot with a Nikon D800, professional grade full frame camera body. 99% of the time I will have a 35mm 1.4 or 24mm 1.4 prime lens on my camera body. Weddings are the exception as certain points of the day require a longer focal length and quick versatility.
2) HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I want my photos to have a classic, rich, color and vibrance to them. My edits help the photos pop with a classic timeless feel that should still look good years down the road. My approach to the day or session could best be described as artistic photojournalism and lifestyle. I love to document your day by capturing true emotions while using an artistic perspective and unique composition to create a beautiful representation of your event, relationships and personalities. I also take traditional posed photographs of each couple, wedding party, and family.
WEDDINGS- During a wedding day, I am constantly on the move taking as many photographs as I possibly can to capture each detail of your day. Detail shots are important as they represent your unique style and are often a result of many months of planning! For the bride, groom, and wedding party photos, I work with you to have fun and come up with creative poses that showcase your relationships best! After the formal photos, it’s back to becoming part of the background of your day and capturing things from a distance while still being available to you if you have a specific shot request!
3) WHAT TYPE OF LOCATIONS DO YOU USE FOR SESSIONS?
I use a variety of both urban and natural locations for Senior Portraits and Family sessions. These locations have been scouted by myself to find optimal light and background for your session.
4) DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?
YES I DO!! My studio is located right off of hwy 61 in beautiful Lake City, MN. I offer studio newborn, sitter/milestone, and lifestyle sessions here.
5) HOW DO I VIEW/OBTAIN MY PHOTOS AFTER MY SESSION AND WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?
Following your session, all of your photos will be edited and uploaded into a gallery through Pixiset. I will e-mail you the link for that gallery and the download PIN. You will be able to download all of the full res gallery images from your session unless otherwise specified.
All session fees include minimum of 40 fully edited high res images from your session. I recommend printing your images using a professional printing company only, or mpix.com. You will not receive a print release to print at CVS, Walgreens, Sam’s Club, Target, Walmart, Costco, or any other big box chain stores. A travel fee does apply to any session greater than 30 miles outside of area code 55066 at a rate of 60 cents per mile, round trip.
Payment is accepted via cash, paypal or stripe. Paypal accepts all major credit cards. Weddings require a non-refundable $400 deposit, all other sessions require either full payment or $175 deposit. This is specified upon booking through my site.
7) HOW QUICKLY ARE MY PHOTOS DELIVERED?
My turn around time for weddings is typically 4-8 weeks depending on the season. All other sessions have a turn around time of 3-4 weeks.
