Here are some commonly asked questions about couples, elopement and wedding photography in Vancouver and beyond. If you can't find an answer to your question(s), don't hesitate to reach out!
HOW DO TRAVEL FEES WORK?
To make things easy, all travel expenses around Vancouver (see note below) are included in the packages I offer. For Vancouver Island weddings, other locations in Canada, or destiation weddings, there is a one-time flat fee, so you don't need to worry about anything else! That's right – I'll take care of any transportation, accommodation, etc.
*Note: Travel expenses of up to a 2-hour drive/ferry ride from V5T 2M1 are covered in the Wedding and Elopement Packages. After the 2-hour mark, travel is 61 cents per km.
HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE SHOULD WE GET?
It depends – we will work together to plan a perfect schedule around your wedding day so that no important moments are missed.
HOWEVER, I generally recommend booking an 8-hour photography package for weddings. This is based on the average coverage couples get and, unless you're planning a multi-day wedding, this would be your best bet to ensure that the whole experience is captured!
For elopements, I recommend a minimum of 3 hours' coverage, but this can vary based on the way you wish to plan your elopement.
DO YOU CAPTURE LARGER WEDDINGS?
Although I would love to say yes to every couple inquiring, I only take on intimate weddings and elopements. Since I assume the role of a planner in addition to a photographer when taking on elopements, it requires honing on a particular set of skills and giving my full attention to a specialized service. This enables me to serve my clients best!
WHAT PLANNING ASSISTANCE DO YOU PROVIDE?
Planning assistance is tailored to each couple.
I can help with everything from location scouting and tips for your engagement session, to finding vendors and building the perfect timeline for your elopement or wedding day. I also offer PDF guides and tips for engagement sessions, as well as elopement and wedding planning.
You'll get unlimited consultation calls with me to go over your questions, ideas and plans. I know we'll make a great team!
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGE GALLERY?
Get ready! Your online gallery will be sent to you approximately 6–8 weeks after your wedding.
HOW DO TRAVEL FEES WORK?
Couple and engagement sessions have a travel fee if they are over a 2-hour drive/ferry ride from Vancouver.
The travel rate by land, air, and water is $0.61/km starting after the 2-hour mark.
IT'S OUR FIRST TIME DOING A PHOTOSHOOT. CAN YOU GIVE US ANY TIPS?
I have worked with so many couples who had never done a photoshoot before, and let me tell you, it's always an amazing time. Chances are you're a natural in front of the camera, and you just don’t know it yet.
I'll send over resources and tips to get us in the groove before your session. During our photo session, I'll give you prompts tailored to your personalities so you never have to feel like you don’t know what to do next.
You’ll see – it will all come together beautifully.
WHEN WILL I/WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGE GALLERY?
You will get to see your image gallery in all its glory within 3–4 weeks after your session!
I got you.
