between every two pines is a doorway to a new world
frequently asked questions
How do we book you?
To reserve your date and make it official, I simply need a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable retainer. I am unable to hold dates without a signed contract and retainer. The first step though? Send me a note on my contact form and we’ll find a time to meet up and chat!
How many hours do we need?
I offer elopement collections starting at 4 hours, and wedding collections starting at 6. Often an 8-9 hour day is suitable for telling the full story at most weddings. I also offer full-day or multiple-day coverage (for elopements) for epic adventures and longer wedding days. I’m also more than happy to sit down with you to figure out how many hours we’d need to tell your full wedding day story.
Can I see a full wedding gallery?
Yes – please! I think it’s super important to check out full galleries from any photographer you’re considering, to get an idea of how they tell a story from start to finish – not just those epic portfolio shots for social media. You can see some full galleries over on my client page.
Do you photograph anything other than weddings and couples?
I find that being able to specialize in photographing couples in love (and travel/the great outdoors) is the absolute best way to serve my clients – though I am happy to recommend some other fantastic photographers if you have a specific need!
Will you photograph my LGBTQ / multicultural / diverse wedding?
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! One of the highest values of Between Two Pines is diversity and non-discrimination, whether that’s on the basis of sexual orientation, gender/gender expression, race, color, appearance/weight, religion, age, national origin, disability, or otherwise.
What is your turnaround time?
Delivery time ebbs and flows a little with the seasons, but rest assured you will receive your photos within 8-12 weeks.
How will we get our photos, and in what resolution?
You’ll get a link to a personalized online gallery with your full resolution images that you can view, download, favorite, share, and print them all to your heart’s content.
What is your payment schedule?
A 50% non-refundable retainer, then the rest is due two weeks before the big day.
Do you do custom collections?
Yes, certainly! I have a few standard collections, with the option to add a la carte items such as additional hours/days, photographers, films, and products. I’m also happy to create a custom collection for you if you’re looking for something a little more unique.
Do you offer a second photographer with your collections?
Yes I do! I’m totally comfortable flying solo for elopement and more intimate weddings, though working with a second is great for larger weddings and times it’s impossible to have coverage in two locations. I work with a very select small handful of fantastically talented photographers, each of whom understand my distinct style and vision and bring their creative eye to the wedding day.
Do you travel? How do travel fees work?
Why yes – there’s not much I love more than traveling! I’ll travel 100 miles from Frederick, MD before incurring a travel fee. Fees may include flight, lodging, transportation, and a little stipend for me to eat. You can see more information about travel on my pricing page.
