Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of equipment do you use? 
I use professional quality Nikon equipment. I have a Nikon D5000. In my lens bag I have a 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 85mm 1.8 and for lighting I use an SB900 speedlight. 

How many photos will we get? 
The amount of photos you receive depends on the package you get. Look at my wedding and portrait collections for more information. 

Are all the photos you give me processed?
Everything you receive on your USB drive is fully processed. 

Do I get the rights to all the images?
Yes! Once I finish editing the images from your session, I deliver a disc to you. You then OWN the rights to these images and can print them for personal use only and are able to post them on facebook, twitter, instagram, or your preferred social media site. All I ask is that you do not crop, add filters, change colors, or alter any of the images. I do offer print options, so if you are overwhelmed and have no idea where to print, I would be happy to do it for you! :) 

How long have you been a photographer?
I discovered my love for photography in high school but this will be my sixth year working professionally!

Can I use props?
Of course! I am a huge fan of props and believe they make each session unique and true to your style and personality!

Who will be shooting on my wedding day?
Yours truly! 

Can family & friends take photos while you are taking photos?
No. Because of time constraints and the need for my clients to give full attention to the session, guest photography cannot be permitted during the formal photography time. If time permits, I will make opportunities throughout the formal photography for guests to take photos. Otherwise, guests are welcome and encouraged to take photos at any time throughout the wedding and reception. 

Where are you located & are you willing to travel?
I’m located in Northern Minnesota. If you are located outside of the area, that is not a problem. I am available to travel worldwide! Send me an email about your travel & destination information. 

What type of photography are you known for?
Weddings & family sessions are mainly what I shoot but I love to take photos of everything! 

Do you think prints & albums are important?
Definitely! Prints last a lifetime and really come alive when they are displayed in your home. I have lots of printing options and would love to share more information if you are interested. 

Does sales tax apply to us?
Yes! If you live in Minnesota, I am required by the state to charge sales tax.
