Where are you based out of?

Oakville, Ontario!

Do we need a second photographer?

You certainly do not need a second photographer for your wedding day! I’m sneaky and quick and able to capture all your precious moments all on my own.

With COVID-19 being such a big factor with 2021 weddings, guest count can be limited, and I want to keep your wedding intimate. By blending into the background, I can capture all the candid moments of you and your guests while keeping a low profile.

How many images will I receive?

For an engagement or family session, you will recieve about 75 photos.

For weddings, you can expect to receive anywhere between 400-700 photos – but every wedding is different.

What is the turnaround time?

The turnaround depends on how much I shoot, how busy I am, and the holidays. Typically, for sessions it takes 3 weeks or less and weddings can take 5 – 8 weeks. I try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image.

What is your cancellation policy?

A cancellation will result in the loss of your retainer fee.

When is the best time of day to take pictures?

My favourite time of day to take pictures is Golden Hour.  The 1 to 2 hours before sunset will give your photos that beautiful glow that you see throughout my galleries.

Can you photoshop us?

I don’t alter the way you look other than skin blemishes or anything temporary that would not normally be there (bruise, scrape, acne etc unless you’d like me to keep it the photos). If you’re self conscious about something, please let me know as I’ll be sure to be extra aware of that while I’m posing you.

What does the payment schedule look like?

For weddings, I require a 30% non-refundable retainer and a signed contract to officially book your date with me. The remaining balance of the package cost is due 5 days before your wedding.

For most other sessions, a 50% retainer fee is needed to secure your booking,  and the remainder is due on the day of the shoot.

Is our retainer refundable?

No, your retainer is non-refundable. However, if you need to reschedule, you may be eligible to transfer your retainer to another date, if you reschedule 30 days or more before the booked session.

A cancellation will result in the loss of your retainer.

Do you charge extra for travel expenses?

If your wedding is located over 2 hours away from Oakville, and you require me to work past 9PM, then a hotel room must be provided.

Fuel surcharge of .59 cents per kilometer (return) will be charged for weddings and photo sessions taking place more than 40km away from Oakville.

What if there is bad weather?

Weather calls are made by Effie 2 hours before the scheduled session.

I always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way, as it’s beautiful and unique in photos. If it is harsh enough that it would make for a shitty time at our shoot (or ruin my gear) and I can reschedule, then we totally will!
