How long in advance should I book?

If you are interested in booking, you'll want to do that as soon as possible.  In order to make sure I can give you the individual attention you deserve, and provide you with exceptional service and experience, I only a limited number of wedding bookings a year, regardless of the date.  


What can I expect?

Let me say first, that I am confident that you won't get a better experience with anyone else.  I hold myself not only to high artistic standards, but to high business and customer service standards.  I believe that the best way to get the perfect shots is to connect with my clients personally and do extensive pre-planning.  You will get regular emails that will help you with your wedding planning, show you updates of my latest sessions, ask for information as it's needed, and just to say hi and see how you're doing.  Because connection is so important to me, I am going to a 100% real human being with you.  Wedding photography isn't just about taking a bunch of pictures...it's about tell a story...your story.  So, I want to get to know you.  I want us to be friends...okay? ;)


How much will it cost?

Unfortunately, wedding costs vary based on travel, hours of coverage, the number of photographers you need, etc.  Because of all these variations, there isn't just one standard answer.  That's why I designed the "Build Your Wedding Package" tool.   Using it, you can select different numbers of hours, photographers, and whether you want a boudoir or engagement session included or not.  The form automatically updates the estimate for you once all the fields are completed.  For access, click the button below!


How long will my wedding coverage last?

That, my friend, depends on you!  My base package includes up to 8 hours of coverage, but you can always add time if you need it! :)


Will I be able to have my images printed anywhere I want?

Yes!  All my wedding packages include your digital files and a print release.  

How many pictures will I get?

My rule of thumb is...if it's deliverable, I'll deliver it. There is no cutoff where I decide if you get a pictures or don't get a picture. This is the one time this day is going to happen for the two of you.  So, who am I to say which pictures are going to be the most important to you?   If it meets my standards of quality, it will be in your gallery.


How long does it take for delivery?

From your wedding date, you will only wait around 30 business days to receive a link to your online gallery with beautiful, professionally retouched images.


How much do I have to pay upfront?

A non-refundable retainer of $200 is due at the time of booking.  Your remaining balance isn't due until two weeks before your wedding.


Will I be charged tax on my package?

No.  Because my packages include services and do not include physical product, I am not required to charge tax.  I do this on purpose, and save you hundreds of dollars in expenses.  If you want beautiful, affordable professional products, they are super easy to order through your online gallery, if you choose to.


Will I have to pay travel expenses?

It depends.  A large portion of travel is included in my wedding packages, so if you are located in the midwest, you won't be looking at much additional expense, if any.  To get an estimate on destination weddings, we'll have to chat!


Do you offer professional products?

Yes!  Since your digital images & printing permission are included in your package, you are never required to purchase professional products through me.  However, they are easy to order online, affordable, and beautiful...you'd be crazy not to.  You can get tons more info about our products and how they work by scrolling towards the bottom of this page!

What is Boudoir?

Boudoir photography is an empowering form of imagery that shows the beauty in each and every model, no matter the age, size, color, hair style, or any other self-perceived flaws.  This is done using clothing, makeup, posing, lighting, and minor retouching.


What can I expect?

You can expect to be treated as special as you are.  You'll be walked through each and every step from what type of lingerie or clothing to wear to accessories.  You'll be pampered by one of my incredible hair and makeup artists, and treated to complimentary wine.  You can expect to have an unforgettable experience, get a self-esteem boost, and have some amazing images you'll fall in love with.  One of my favorite testimonials is from a woman who said,

"I am so, so glad I did this.  I initially booked so I could give it as a gift to my fiancee, but it was completely life changing for me.  The truth is, I knew the pictures were going to be incredible quality since you were taking them, but I never, ever thought I would love a picture of myself.  I have to admit...I walk a little taller, now.  LOL.  I keep wallet sized prints in my wallet, in my car, in my bathroom, and at my office just as a reminder to love myself, because I am beautiful on the inside and out.  I never could have said that with confidence before."

Are there ways to earn product credit?

Ummm, heck yeah!  There are two ways to earn product credit.  Referrals and Rewards.  These credit codes will be emailed to you.

~~~~~

Referrals

Word of mouth is so important for small businesses, and this one is no exception.  Quite frankly, it's expensive to advertise, and it makes much more sense to me to spend that on you!  So, for each on you!  When someone says you referred them and officially books their session, you'll get a gift card delivered to your email inbox!

~~~~~

Rewards

For every $100 spent in your online gallery (excluding shipping & taxes), you get an additional $10 in credit.


What is the V.I.P. section of your website?

The V.I.P section of this website is a plethora of resources and materials for my wonderful clients!  It includes instructional videos, printables, and preferred vendors.   You'll find information about sessions and photography, as well as information to help with wedding planning and more! 


Do you sell gift cards?

Yes!  If you'd like to purchase a gift card, you can contact me directly at tossthebouquetstudios@gmail.com.  This is the perfect gift for wedding couples to use toward their products after their big day!  You can give them a gift they will love for years to come! 

What products are available for purchase?

Through the online ordering galleries, you can order everything from prints, keychains, and phone cases to albums, canvases, metals, and acrylics.  You can order signature books, invitations/thank you cards, and other custom items, as well.  I'm always willing to create custom items. If you can dream it, I can do it.  Just ask!


How long does it take for products to be received?

There are many variables in delivery times.  Prints and smaller items are usually delivered within 3-5 business days.  Larger items may take more time to process.  Rush deliver options are available through the online gallery.  However, that only applies to shipping time, and does not affect the time for creation of your products.  If you are working with limited time, please contact me before placing your order.


Can my family and friends see my gallery?

Your friends and family can pre-register for your online gallery, which notifies them when your them when your gallery is live via email!  Once they've gained access to your gallery, they can easily order products, pay online, and have their order shipped directly to their home!   


When will my gallery expire?

Galleries stay active for a minimum of 2 weeks.  


What happens if there is a problem with my order?

If there is a problem with your order when it is delivered, you can email me at tossthebouquetstudios@gmail.com with your order number, a description of the problem, and images of the damaged product. 


How do I get my digitals?

Digitals are downloaded directly from your gallery.  The download pin is emailed to you when you get your gallery password.  This pin can only be used once, and it will be sent only to you.  Your print release is delivered with the download.  Once your images have been downloaded, make sure to back them up on a thumb drive, external hard drive or online.  


What is the difference between print release and copyright?

Print release and copyright are not so different to a client.  Copyright means that you own the images and can have them printed elsewhere.  A print release means that I retain ownership of the images but that you have permission to print them elsewhere.
