I can give you the starting costs, but you already know (pls tell me you read that in Big Freedia's voice) every wedding is different. I actually find that set packages don't work when it comes to weddings and do things custom for each couple.
Whether you want the works with 12 hours of coverage, three photographers, an engagement session and an album or a basic 6 hours with just me, we can figure it out. What I usually do next is hop on the phone to ask you a few questions to craft your custom wedding packages. Send in an inquiry and LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED.
I get it. Weddings can be A LOT. With the national average costs of weddings being almost 30k, elopements can be a great alternative. My elopements are like mini weddings that come with recommendations for vendors and a few hours of photography. Then you can forever remember your day.
Typically, I only book elopements on weekdays as my Saturday minimum is 6 hours, but really, reach out and let's see if we can work together!
Engaged? Proposing? Celebrating something special? I AM IN!
For my photoshoots, we usually spend about 30 minutes to 2 hours walking around a neighborhood or park. I take the wheel with posing and make sure you and your boo look cute af. Don't worry if you've never done a photoshoot. I will guide you through every-step.
Do you love my work and my vibe, but the prices are not what you expected? Don't let a number stop you from reaching out. If you want me there to photograph, I want to talk to you and see if we can work something out. Just remember, this is my full time gig, and someone has to pay for this fancy dog food for my allergic-to-chicken Maybelle.
Oh yeah for sure. Read through my reviews on The Knot, and you'll see I try to be as helpful as I can. I am not from New Orleans, but I moved her in 2010 and have gotten to know the city well. You want to meet at a super cool, off-the-beaten-path cocktail bar? DONE. You want to find the biggest tree in the city of New Orleans? DONE. You want a shot on a balcony with some dope iron work? DONE.
I love this city. I walk my dog around the Treme and French Quarter. I know this place like the back of my hand, and I am excited to share my knowledge with you.
For sure for sure. As someone who used to hate getting their photo taken, I know FIRST HAND how awkward it can be. I have a whole process and flow that will put you at ease. I start *poses* by having you walk around and interact with each other. As you get more comfortable, I will throw in a few more *Beyonce & Jay-Z* style poses. I will guide you through the whole thing. All you need to do is show up, and I take care of the rest!
For weddings, you will find sneak peaks in your inbox with 48 hours! Your full gallery will be ready within 6 weeks.
For engagement photos and couples sessions, usually within a few days and never longer than 2 weeks!
First, I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR FRIEND!!!
Here is what I do. Each of my cameras has two card slots. Each of your images is written (a.k.a. saved) TWICE. Then when I get home I back everything up in three different locations. Security is super important to me. Your images are so important to me. I take all of this super seriously.
Within 24 hours, I have 5 copies of your images, one of which is stored on the cloud. I got you covered here.
Yes!! I have you plan our your family photos using a template and inputting NAMES. That way, on your wedding day, I call out everyone and keep things organized and flowing.
Here is what my clients are saying
"She was accommodating with family drama and so supportive. " - Caitlyn
"We loved her creativity with our family photos, and truly enjoyed the casual, unscripted images she captured of our family and friends celebrating! " - Miria
Ok, I will be real with you here - do you like getting your photo taken? Does your fiance like getting their picture taken? If "no" to either of those, you need to do an engagement session.
Why? Because if you are worried about getting your picture taken, or you don't like getting your picture taken, we need to work out those kinks BEFORE the wedding. When we do an engagement session, it's like a practice run. You learn posing, we get to know each other, and all the awkwardness fades away. Then, it's all smooth sailing come wedding day!
Yes, yes, and yes.
Whew, yes - it is a tricky time! I am letting all my couples reschedule or postpone their weddings free of charge for dates I am available if they are rescheduling because of stay at home orders.
Every reschedule is case by case. - Just know, I want to find a solution that works well for all of us!
