Studio

I shoot with a Canon 5D MKIV and edit using Adobe Lightroom. At the studio I have a full array of professional lighting, lamps, and refractors. 

What equipment do you use? 

general faq

You will need to complete a full inquiry form prior to booking. After that, we will confirm your date and you will submit a retainer to finalize your booking! 

The Booking Process

If inclement weather is occurring or is forecasted to occur at the time of your session, we will make the call together 2-3 hours prior to your scheduled session time whether or not we are able to proceed. A reschedule will be made as soon as possible following the scheduled date.

Inclimate weather policies 

For all shoots, including local, USA, and international, I will assist you with finding optimal locations, however you are responsible to register for all reservations and permits necessary, and abide by all rules and regulations set by the owners/managers of the location. 

Permits and Reservations

If a cancellation must occur on behalf of the client, please inform me ASAP. I understand life happens, however I do ask that you be respectful of my time as you are taking a session time away from other potential clients! Late or multiple cancellations may result in additional fees. 

Cancellation policies

The studio is located at 801 N 9th Ave Unit A, Pensacola, FL 32501. You can find me by the massive custom wood sign we have out front!

Where is the studio Located?

Studio

Yes! We have a shared parking lot with the adjacent salon. 

Is there parking?

Yes! I believe that our furry friends are family, so how could we leave them out of a family shoot? Just HMU before bringing a pet over 100 lbs. 

Can I bring my pet along?

For studio sessions, you can expect to receive your photos within two to three weeks of our session date. 

WHEN DO I GET MY Photos?

My studio intern may be present at some shoots. For more ~intimate~ shoots, no one will be present that you haven't approved. For boudoir photoshoots, the windows will be closed, and can be closed on request for all other shoots as well. 

WHO ELSE WILL BE THERE?

After all photoshoots, boudoir in particular, the studio spaces, furniture, and props are thoroughly cleaned. For boudoir shoots, we will use fresh sheets to cover all surfaces. 

Intimacy & Sanitation

No! I will truly follow you anywhere for your wedding or elopement. For elopement packages, travel fees are already included. For traditional weddings, be sure to set aside a travel budget if I need to come to you. 

Is there a limit to where you will travel to?

Weddings & Elopements

Though miracles can happen for a quick booking, I recommend booking me at least one year in advance to ensure I will be available for your wedding day. 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I PLAN TO BOOK YOU?

For wedding and elopement photoshoots, I always send a sneak peek within 24 hours of your big day! You can expect the full suite of your photos back from me within 90 days.

When should i expect to receive my photos? 

Every wedding and elopement is different, so I will provide any recommended vendors on request! In my travels, I have worked with many vendors local to the areas we visited, so I hope to cultivate relationships with small businesses around the world.

DO YOU HAVE PREFERRED LOCAL VENDORS? 

Yes! I will be shooting your wedding or elopement. For large weddings or lengthy events, I may bring a trusted associate photographer with me upon your approval. 

If I am unavailable to shoot your wedding or elopement, we can still discuss an engagement photoshoot. 

WILL YOU BE SHOOTING MY WEDDING? 

Bespoke means custom to you. When we shoot "bespoke" photography, that means the location, props, textures, colors, and mood are all custom to your vision. 

WHAT DOES BESPOKE MEAN?

Bespoke

Anywhere! The beach, a park, your house, a museum, you name it! Just know that the location will certainly affect the overall sensation of the shoot, and travel fees may apply if you are a good distance from Pensacola. 

WHERE CAN WE GO?

Yes! I believe that our furry friends are family, so how could we leave them out of a family shoot? Just HMU before bringing a pet over 100 lbs. 

CAN I BRING MY PET ALONG?

My studio intern may be present at some shoots. For more ~intimate~ shoots, no one will be present that you haven't approved. 

WHO ELSE WILL BE THERE?

For bespoke sessions, you can expect to receive your photos within two to three weeks of our session date. 

WHEN DO I GET MY PHOTOS?

I am going to put my whole heart and soul into creating art with you. I love what I do and you are going to love working with me. Let’s get to the good stuff.
