WHAT TYPES OF SESSIONS CAN I BOOK?
I photograph: traditional weddings, elopements/microweddings, destination weddings, families of all shapes and sizes, newborn lifestyle sessions, and branding/lifestyle sessions. If you don't see what you're looking for on my Investment page, feel free to contact me! I'd love to create a custom package to fit your needs.
WHEN SHOULD I CONTACT YOU TO BOOK MY PORTRAIT SESSION?
I suggest reaching out at least 4-8 weeks in advance to ensure that you can secure your date! Weekend dates fill very fast, as does busy season (April through October). If your session is extra time sensitive (maternity, fresh 48, newborn lifestyle, a birthday/shower/other event), please don't wait. Inquire ASAP!
WHEN SHOULD I CONTACT YOU TO BOOK MY WEDDING?
As soon as you start planning! I take a very limited number of weddings and elopements each year to ensure that each of my clients gets the personalized attention that they deserve. I would recommend between 12-18 months before your wedding.
WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD WE HAVE OUR SESSION?
I believe that natural light, from the sun and its reflections, creates photographs that feel fresh, timeless, and truest to you. I begin all portrait sessions two hours before the scheduled sunset during “the golden hour,” when the light is the dreamiest.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY SESSION?
All of my clients receive a custom curated Style Guide that helps you decide what to wear! I will walk you through the whole process of choosing your outfits, letting you know what does and doesn’t photograph well. I personally love a mix of simple earthy neutrals. It's really flattering to your skin tones and leaves the focus on you.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?
You will receive an expertly curated online gallery of edited, high-resolution photographs for you to download and order prints, canvases, photobooks, etc. You will also receive a print release! You and anyone you share your photos with can download and print with no limits, to your heart's desire :)
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE?
Every session is unique, but on average, you will receive:
Portrait session: 35-50 images per hour of coverage
Wedding day: 70-90 images per hour of coverage
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO HAVE MATERNITY AND NEWBORN PHOTOS TAKEN?
I prefer to photograph expecting mamas when they're 26-30 weeks pregnant and newborns around 7-10 days old.
WHAT IS A NEWBORN LIFESTYLE SESSION?
A lifestyle session is different than the posed studio sessions with outfits and props that you may see from other photographers. Those are absolutely stunning! However, I focus on candid, intimate, in-home sessions where I capture the real moments of your family welcoming your new little bundle home for the first time.
MY HUSBAND/FIANCE/BOYFRIEND/WIFE/GIRLFRIEND/FILL-IN-THE-BLANK ABSOLUTELY HATES PHOTOS. WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO POSE. WILL OUR PHOTOS STILL TURN OUT BEAUTIFUL?
ABSOLUTELY! Everyone feels awkward in front of the camera, including ME! I will give you direction and help pose when necessary. Everything I do is to help make sure you the pictures look the most flattering--from the style guide that I provide, to the posing that I do the day of our session! There is nothing to worry about.
MY WEDDING VENUE REQUESTS PROOF OF INSURANCE. ARE YOU INSURED?
100%, and my policy includes internationally, too ;) I am happy to provide a certificate for you and your venue.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WEATHER DOESN'T COOPERATE?
I monitor the weather like a HAWK leading up to every shoot! I highly recommend keeping a rain date in mind and reserving it on the calendar. In the event of inclement weather, I will make the call either the night before or the morning of, whichever one you are more comfortable with. I usually tend toward calling it off if there is more than 50% chance of rain, UNLESS my clients want to go ahead with it. Sometimes rainy sessions can be beautiful too! The retainer would be applied to a mutually agreed upon rescheduled date.
Are You Ready to Begin?
or have more questions for me?
Please do not hesitate to reach out! I am happy to answer any questions you have. If you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, I’d love to create a custom package that is tailored perfectly to you!
my past clients have the sweetest things to say
Bianca is so easy to work with and makes the entire process very enjoyable. She has an excellent sense of how to pose her clients. You can tell how passionate she is about her photography!
