We are currently booking 1.5 years in advance for weddings and 4 months in advance for photo-shoots - so because of this, we rarely (if ever) have last minute availability and will not be able to accommodate last minute schedulings. As soon as you know we're the photography team for you, please contact us to schedule your session/wedding! 

I'm interested in booking you for my wedding/photo-shoot, how soon should I contact you?  

Frequently Asked Questions

If you're interested in a session - a nonrefundable session fee and contract are required to reserve your date/time. If you're interested in wedding photography - a nonrefundable retainer and signed contract are required to reserve your entire day!
Specifics will be given out upon inquiry! 

How do I book a session/wedding with you?  

We are available for travel and have shot weddings/bridals up and down the East Coast. World-wide travel is based on strict-availability. Please contact us for more information. We are based out of Smithfield, Virginia -- a charming little town!!!
Ham Hickory and Hospitality .

Do you travel? 

Yes - this is my career and not just a hobby. I am licensed and insured and have professional equipment and backups for my backups. 

Are you a professional photographer?  

Yes - in fact, I have a background in teaching - my first two years of college were spent as an Education Major before I switched over to Psychology/Counseling and Law. Teaching is my second passion in life and I love to share the things I've learned with others. Be sure to visit the Education page of my site to stay in the loop on our next workshop. I do offer limited one-on-one mentoring sessions as well! 

Do you offer workshops and/or mentoring sessions?  

Unfortunately no. Our weekends are specifically set aside for weddings, workshops and boudoir marathons. No exceptions. All sessions take place in the evening during the week (around sunset) so that you do not have to take an entire day off of work. I apologize if this causes an inconvenience for you. 

I need to book my portrait session on the weekend - is that possible? 

Photography is a luxury and not a 'necessity' and because of this, I cannot extend a discount to you. I recommend waiting until you are more financially comfortable before booking a session with me. I do, however, offer flexible payment plans and am more than happy to work with you. 

I'm in a tight spot financially, can I have a discount?  

We have an amazing team of creatives and you can expect a Lead photographer, a second shooter and a non-shooting assistant!
