Printing over Pixeling

In an era where digital convenience reigns, the timeless appeal of physical artwork stands unmatched for preserving life's most precious moments. As a wedding photographer, I advocate for the unparalleled emotional impact and artistic integrity of prints and custom products. These tangible memories, crafted with care, not only become heirlooms for future generations but also transform living spaces with personal narratives and deep emotions. Physical artwork transcends digital files, offering a depth of experience and connection that pixels alone cannot convey. Let's celebrate your love story through the enduring beauty of prints, where each piece is a testament to the art of memory.

F.A.Q.'s

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers!

Where will our session be?

What should we wear?

Northern Michigan has so many great locations for a session. You get to tell us what kind of session backdrop you’re looking for and we scout the session specifically for your session. The options are really endless.

I always encourage people to consider their environment in which they will be photographed in. This means, if you want to have a session in the woods, don’t wear colors similar to your surroundings. I also suggest that you dress to be yourself and neutral colors always photograph well.

What is your travel fee?

Do you offer discounts?

We do offer a 10% discount to families and couples that we've had the pleasure of working with in the past.

Sessions outside of Traverse City will have a travel fee. $1500 to Detroit | $750 to Grand Rapids | $275 to Harbor Springs | $225 to Petoskey | $175 to Charlevoix, Arcadia, Frankfort or Cadillac | $100 to Northport | $75 to Glen Arbor, Leland, Lake Leelanau, Elk Rapids, Empire, Suttons Bay

Can I show you my Pinterest Board?

What time of day is best for the session?

As artists, we take a lot of pride in our original, carefully honed styles. We strive to be creative and unique with each couple we photograph. Attempting to recreate images is simply not our style.

We typically have the sessions in the early morning or closer to sunset. There are many of factors we consider before determining a time and we typically schedule a time 7 days before the session so that we can have a good idea of light and weather.

How many images will we receive , when can we see them?

We’re ready to move forward, how do we book?

Great! You will want to respond to the initial email I sent you with your package choice and a few dates that work for the session.

On average, you will receive anywhere between 50 images per hour. Images from the session are available for online viewing 3-6 weeks from date of event.

Do you touch-up our images?

What’s the difference between single, multi and lifestyle?

Your photos go through an extensive selection and editing process to ensure a premium product. During this process, all photos are edited for color, white balance, and exposure. We will apply minor touch-ups when necessary; however, if there are major touch-ups, we can discuss the cost required to perform those edits.

Single family collections are for nuclear or single households. Multi family collections are sessions that will included several nuclear families/households or family reunions. Lifestyle sessions offer a more relaxed shoot where the main idea/goal is to document an activity or event versus taking posted portraits. We treat the single and multi family sessions like this in a way.

We're looking forward to documenting your session
