Where are you based?

Bright, bold, vibrant, colorful, happy, effervescent, timeless, genuine, candid!

Yes! I have had the privilege of documenting Indian weddings and would be honored to be chosen as your photographer if you are planning a traditional Indian wedding!
Do you photograph weddings of various religions?
Yes. I have photographed Christian weddings, Jewish weddings, & Hindu weddings as well as non-religious wedding celebrations.
How far in advance do I need to book with you?
I recommend reaching out for wedding photography services at least 9 months before your celebration. Portrait sessions fill up quickly so reaching out at least 2 months prior is recommended. Fall is typically the busier season.
How many weddings do you take on each year?
What happens if you have an emergency come up on our wedding day?
Knock on wood, this has never happened before (Thank Goodness!!), but if something does arise, I do have a fantastic network of photographers that I collaborate with who could come to my rescue!
Do you have options for second photographers and what are the benefits of having two shooters
at my wedding?
Yes! I work with a network of amazing photographers in the area and we help each other out when it comes to second shooting wedding celebrations! The benefits of having more than one photographer on your day are numerous! Having a second photographer at your wedding allows for more creativity and different perspectives in your final gallery. A second photographer can also help streamline the timeline of your day if you have a large wedding party, guest count or multiple locations involved.
Can I give you a specific list of shots for you to take?
I do have a Timeline Worksheet that I use for my wedding couples to list out all of the shots they’d like to have captured. It helps keep the day-of organized and running smoothly!
What rights do I have with my images?
I provide fully retouched, high-resolution images in an online gallery with full printing rights. You may use your images for personal use. I retain all rights.
Can I have or view the RAW images?
No. RAW images straight out of camera are dull and unrefined. The real magic happens during post processing when the various editing techniques I employ bring the images to life.
Do you limit the number of files received?
No. I curate and then furnish all of the beautiful images from your gallery. You can expect at least 75-100 images in your final gallery.
How many images for a regular session? How many images for a wedding?
For a regular session, you can expect a minimum of 75 images. For a typical full wedding day, you can expect a minimum of 1200 images.
How long does it take to receive final galleries?
I keep the lines of communication open with my clients because some seasons are busier than others but normally, regular sessions are delivered within 2 weeks. Weddings are delivered within 60 days.

Do you have insurance?
What does your payment schedule look like?
