Where are you located?

Frequently 
asked questions

I am located in Lubbock, Texas! Don’t even worry if you don’t know where that is, haha — whether your big day will be here in Lubbock, another state, or another country — holla from wherever you are, and I will happily travel. :) We can discuss any additional charges for travel when you contact me.

Will I receive high-resolution images & how many?

Yessss, of course! Wedding day coverage typically provides 500-1000 images and senior sessions 30-50 photos. I can’t guarantee a specific number because every session is different, BUT I can guarantee that you WILL receive every good image I capture. 

I'm/we're super awkward and have never had professional photos taken before. Is that okay?

Roughly 90% of my clients are in the exact same boat as you, so you’re far from alone! Being in front of the camera can be scary, but I’ll guide you the entire time! You can count on me to make this the best photo experience you will ever have! In fact, I have worked hard to earn my reputation as a photographer who delivers remarkable photos that celebrate this important time in your life.

These memories are worth capturing, so I work hard to put you at ease. Before you realize it, you’re having fun and feeling pretty freakin’ awesome in front of the camera! Basically, I’m the hype-woman who will make you feel super comfortable AND have fun throughout the process!

What's your turn-around time?

Weddings are delivered within one month, and Senior Sessions are delivered within two weeks! (For an additional fee, you can request a faster turn-around time!)


Have you worked at our venue before? Does that matter?

Nope, it doesn’t matter! I am very comfortable photographing any venue. I encourage my couples to really take time and find a venue that speaks to them. As a professional photographer, I have shot in every type of lighting imaginable (lighting often changes depending on the venue you choose). It's my job to know how the lighting will work and to know which angles are most flattering to compose the best images. 

I will arrive early on our scheduled day to walk through the venue and find locations that will best showcase certain photographs and make it the most epic day possible for everyone. I take special care and time if I've never been to your particular venue before. I do the prep work so that you don't have to worry about your photos. You can just revel in your special day.



How do I make my payments?

Payment will be super convenient; you can pay electronically!


Can you help me with a wedding timeline?

Yes, of course! I'll send you a form to help create a timeline with information about how long things typically take, examples of timelines, and other helpful information. You'll be able to create your own timeline, and we can go over it together! It’s just that easy.

What's the payment schedule like?

For Wedding Day Coverage, I require a non-refundable 50% retainer along with the signed contract to officially reserve your date. I don't want you stressin' over money, so the other 50% is due 30 days before the wedding date. If you’d like a Bridal and/or Engagement Session, please refer to the Add-ons (hyperlink) sections under weddings. 

Senior Sessions: I require a non-refundable 50% retainer along with the signed contract to officially reserve your date. The other 50% will be due one day before your scheduled session.



What location is best for our Engagement Session?

I encourage you, as a couple, to think about what you really both love and what places reflect that passion. If you relish making coffee together and snuggling on the couch with some good ol’ Netflix, maybe an at-home session is right for you. Don’t be afraid to incorporate your favorite activities like riding bikes or taking the boat out to the lake! If you’d like, I would love to help brainstorm several options. No venue is too obscure or too well-known!

Are all Senior Sessions done on campus? Could I choose a different location?

I LOVE shooting photos that are really one-of-a-kind and may just capture a side of you that you have been hesitant to share. Many seniors prefer to have their session on campus, and I will make sure you love the photos we take there. However, if you have a different place in mind — or if you would like to brainstorm together — I’d be thrilled to use a location that more closely matches your vibe. You could also opt to have one part of the session on campus and the other part at a second location. This is your special day; let’s make it perfectly YOU!

Do you meet with people before they book?

Sometimes! It depends! Some people wanna meet, and some people don't. I try to accommodate everyone and their specific needs! If you wanna meet, I will happily meet ya wherever!!

How do I book?

It’s super easy! Contact me to let me know when you are ready to reserve your date so that I can make sure I am available. After we choose the best package for you (please note that although there is only one package available for the Senior Session, add-ons are available); I will send over a contract + invoice. Once the contract is signed and 50% of the non-refundable retainer is paid, you are officially BOOKED!!


Do you have any recommendations for boutiques, hair, flowers, D.J., band, etc?

Absolutely I do!!! Because I have lived and worked here in Lubbock for 23 years, I have many connections that I will be sharing with you. As soon as your date is officially booked, I will send your Welcome Guide with referrals for Lubbock vendors along with your Perfect-looks Referral! If you don’t see your question answered, please don’t hesitate to ask!
