Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to get my photos?
Typically 4-8 weeks for weddings and full-day events. Please allow 2-3 weeks for the following categories: Maternity, Newborn, Families, Branding, Engagement, and half-day events.
What happens if you get sick or injured and can't photograph me?
If I get sick or injured and am no longer able to photograph you, then I will immediately notify you and will work with you to either reschedule or find a substitute photographer.
What if I need to reschedule?
If you need to reschedule, then please notify me right away. Depending upon the situation and timing, then I am happy to work with you to reschedule. However, if you need to cancel, then the 20% retainer fee is non-refundable after signing the contract.
How many photos will I get?
This is dependent upon the type of session that you book. If you are booking Grace Creatives for a mini-session, then the number of images will be given in the session description. If you are booking a wedding with Grace Creatives, then you will have access to all of the edited digital images from your wedding day. I typically shoot 60-80 images/hour and provide anywhere between 40-70 pictures/hour in the final gallery. If you are booking a different session, then the amount of images is dependent upon the amount of time and type of session that you book.
Do I Get the copyright to my photos?
As the photographer, I own copyright to all of images I capture. After delivery of the images, you are more than welcome to print, share, and enjoy them for your very own personal-use. Under my contract, you may not re-sell the images or pass them along for commercial use without written permission from Grace Creatives.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I'm a Canon person! I own a Canon Mark IV and a variety of Canon lenses. Sometimes you will see me break out my flash, tripod, or reflectors.
What types of payment do you accept?
Thanks for asking! As a small business owner, I prefer clients to make payments using either cash or check. However, Paypal and Credit Card options are also available.
How do you share the photos after the session?
After the session, I will narrow down and edit all of the images. Then, they will be delivered via an online digital gallery. Through this gallery, you will be able to share, view, favorite, download, and buy all of the images. The digital gallery link is delivered via email. Often times, I will also follow-up with clients on the day-of sharing the gallery and let them know that their photos are available and ready to be viewed.
