How far are you willing to travel?
Since I work a full time job, ideally, I would like to keep travel within a day's time. Meaning, I will go there if I can fly or drive on a Friday, shoot on Saturday, and then come home on Sunday. Typically, the max is 10 hours in any direction from Ridgely, TN.
My location or city isn't on your lists. Can I still book you?
What are your fees for travel?
Travel fees are based solely on location and what we're shooting.
Weddings are priced differently than regular sessions. For a regular session, the fee ranges from $125 to $200 with the exception of distant locations that require overnight lodging. For weddings, I have the TN package that includes travel for any wedding in the state of TN and a USA package for any wedding outside of Tennessee.
Do you offer second shooter for travel weddings?
Yes. If I can find someone local to me who is willing to go, I bring someone with me. If not, I will search your area for a photographer who is willing to second shoot with me.
How far in advance do I need to book?
For regular sessions outside the state of TN, I need at least 2 weeks' notice. For weddings, 2-3 months would be best.
Can I Come to Your Town??
I would love to host mini sessions in different cities in and near Tennessee. If you or your friend group would like to host me and help book some sessions, I would love to come to your city and shoot a day of mini sessions.
OR - If you are a photographer and would like to host a workshop with me, I would love to do that as well! Workshops are in the works (no pun intended) and will be available in 2023!
