Weddings: How We Work


I’m ready to book my wedding, what is the next step?

After you’ve decided that you’d like to hire me to photograph your wedding, you will need to fill out a contract and pay a retainer fee to hold your date.  We can meet in person for this or I can send you the documents via e-mail. 


Is it necessary to meet in person before the wedding?

While it is great if we can meet in person prior to your wedding, if you are planning a wedding from another state, don’t worry. We can discuss details on the phone or e-mail.  When you arrive in town we can meet up for coffee to go over any last minute details.


How soon in advance should we book our date?

Most brides book approximately 9-12 months in advance.  If you want to guarantee that I’m available on your wedding date, I recommend signing up at your earliest convenience.


Do you charge extra for travel?

Travel within a 50 mile radius of Missoula is included.  If your wedding or engagement session takes place outside of that range additional fees may be added.


Do you offer rehearsal dinner coverage?

Yes.  I offer rehearsal dinner coverage provided I am available on your rehearsal dinner date.  I can provide you a separate quote.
