What kind of camera do you have?
I shoot with a Canon 6d Mark II and a 7d Mark II with a 50 mm 1.4 lens and Sigma 35 mm lens. Canon external speedlite.
What is a "natural light photographer"?
My images are contingent on the lighting situation of the time, day, and location. For example, 2 photos taken at the same time and location but one on a sunny day and one on a cloudy day, will produce two completely different images. I do use external lighting when necessary, such as with indoor situations.
How much do you charge?
Please check my "investment" section for specific info, or visit my contact section for an individualized quote!
How will i receive my pictures?
Through an online gallery using Pixieset! I will email you the link to your gallery, which can be shared to social media or emailed to friends/ family. You can download the entire album or individual images to your computer.
I can also mail you a USB with all the edited images upon special request.
All wedding packages include the online gallery and USB.
Do you require a deposit?
For weddings, yes i do require a deposit and signed contract within 30 days of scheduling your event
How many pictures will i get?
You would get 80 or more for a regular portrait session, 30 or more for a mini portrait session, and 600 or more for a wedding.
You will also receive a print right release. download it here.
How long is a session?
A portrait session is an hour, a mini session is 30 minutes, and my wedding packages range in coverage of 8-10 hours. but time can be flexible. I want you to feel comfortable and relaxed, not rushed through your memory!
Do you edit your own pictures?
Yes! I use Lightroom and Photoshop and absolutely love it! Each image is edited with love and care and I do not release RAW files to clients.
Can you edit my images lighter/ darker?
I've worked very hard to develop an editing style I'm proud of and reflects my personal style! My edit changes slightly with the season and is contingent on lighting conditions. If you feel you want a different style all together I have lots of talented friends with various editing styles I can connect you with!
Where do you take pictures?
I have places in mind but always like your suggestions and finding new places! I've shot a lot in Dahlonega and my hometown in Dallas. I currently live in Cumming so shooting in and around Atlanta is easy to do. I love shooting at any sentimental locations as well!
Are you willing to travel?
Absolutely! I love exploring new places and I am very willing to come to you, wherever you are, and take your picture in your favorite town! There may be additional cost for travel expenses.
What is your travel fee?
Travel fees are based on mileage and are unique to each session or wedding!
What should I wear to my portrait session?
Bring options! I always suggest more solid colors than busy patterns. I want your pretty face to be the focus! Definitely be comfortable and wear something that reflects your personal style and personality. Have fun with it!
For newborn sessions I always suggest a swaddle and a comfy pajama or soft special outfit. Keep it simple!
Can I post the pictures on social media (facebook, instagram)?
I encourage it! It makes me happy to see my clients celebrate their memory and share my work. I only ask that you don't edit my photos in any way (like adding a filter) and give me some kind of photo credit: using #blushandberryphotography or a quick note in the caption. My social media handles are found at the bottom of the screen!
Do you have props or should I bring some?
I have a few things I've used with baby shoots (quilts, small chalkboards, chairs) but you're always welcome to bring anything that is special to and want to include in your memory! For casual portraits or couples I typically don't incorporate props but I'm willing to play with some if you want!
What type of pictures have you done?
I've done senior portraits, newborn and siblings, proposals, engagement and couples, weddings, professional groups, and families. Please visit my portfolio section for examples!
Do you do videography as well?
I do not do videos but if you're interested I have very talented friends I can connect you with!
