FAQ

What types of sessions do you offer?

I offer family, couple, and lifestyle sessions, as well as wedding and elopement packages. You can find more info here!

How would you describe your style?

My shooting style is candid, energetic, adventurous, emotional and and real. My images focus on the relationships and emotions between the people within the frame and the story they have with one other. 

My editing style is bold and vibrant. I'm drawn to strong lighting and pops of color, darker tones and playful use of light to pull out the mood of a scene. 

What is Lifestyle Photography?

Lifestyle sessions are more documentary than candid. These sessions circle around activities sentimental to the client to freeze in time those special memories. These sessions typically take place indoors and are scheduled late morning or early afternoon to capture the best lighting. You can read more about lifestyle photography here

How do I book and what’s required?

To book your session, simply submit an inquiry through the contact tab on this page. Once received, we will work together to choose the best option for your session and begin the booking process.

In order to secure a date on the calendar, a completed contract (digitally signable) and non-refundable retainer fee (50% of investment fee) is required. 

What does my investment fee include?

  • Shooting time with Casey

  • Unlimited edited images

  • Full-resolution digital files

  • Social media sneak peeks & a blog teaser

  • 10-year online gallery for sharing, downloading, and printing

  • Print release for continued printing

What should we wear?

  • Neutral colors, deeper hues, and pops of color blend well in all settings

  • Look for clothing that is comfortable and natural to your style

  • Use patterns to break up solid colors! Keep patterns complimentary by pairing larger floral prints with thin stripes or thick stripes with small floral prints. 

  • Bold colors in primary or secondary colors go great together

  • Layers are always flattering! Necklaces, vests, cardigans, suspenders, bow ties, scarves, etc. add detail and texture to an outfit

    • Solid colors with texture overlays are perfect for adding balance to a pattern-heavy wardrobe grouping

  • Avoid clothing with large areas of solid black, white, or bright red as these don't photograph well

    • White clothing with texture (lacy, woven, etc) does photograph well

    • Always avoid neon or fluorescent clothing!

  • Please, no logos, slogans, graphics, or phrases on clothing

  • Of course, you can always check the blog for examples from some of my clients!

    Where and when will my session take place?

    All outdoor sessions are scheduled around sunrise or sunset to take advantage of golden hour. You will have the option to choose which you'd prefer when booking your session. Please see above for lifestyle session scheduling.

    When booking, you are welcome to suggest locations you'd like to use, or we can work together to find a location that best suits your vision! 

    Some parks and grounds require a permit and application. Any fees associated with these items will be added to your invoice, or billed separately. Please keep in mind these locations require advance notice ranging from 2 weeks to 90 days for premitted sessions. 

    What if the weather is bad?

    Mother Nature doesn't always work in our favor. I do not reschedule for clouds, but will reschedule for rain. In the event of incliment weather, we will work together to find another day that works for everyone!

    How many images will I receive?

    The average 90-minute sessions yields around 70-120 edited images, where the average 45-minute milestone session yields around 30-70 edited images. And in some cases sessions yield much, much more! It all depends on the excitement and enthusiasm you bring with you to your session. If you arrive ready to be all-in with your family, spouse, or significant other, your final gallery has the potential to be quite large! 

    An average 8-hour wedding yields about 600-800 edited images, but the same outlook applies! The more comfortable you and your guests are, the more there is to capture in between moments. Just be yourselves and let the rest come naturally!

    Image yields cannot be guaranteed and are contingent upon shooting conditions and client participation.

    Do you include black and white images?

    Yes, I choose a selection of images that make strong black and white images to include in your final gallery. For these images, you will have both the color and black and white versions of these images. Additional conversions can be requested after receiving your gallery. 

    How will I get my images?

    Once your gallery is complete, you will receive an email link to the gallery that can then be shared with family and friends as you please. This gallery can be accessed through the web link or through an application on your device. 

    Galleries are available for 10 years and allow immediate downloading, social media sharing, easy-to-use print ordering.

    Can I get my images on a USB drive?

    Yes, USB drive packages can be added onto any portrait, lifestyle, or milestone session for $50 each.

    USB drive packages can be added to any wedding package for a additional fee relative to the chosen package. Pricing available upon request. 

    How can I order prints, canvases, and albums?

    • Basic print and popular canvas sizes are available for order through your online gallery.

    • Custom orders for large format prints, products, and albums can be placed directly through me.

    • Custom album designs are complimentary with the purchase of any album. Album pricing will be available upon delivery of your gallery.

    • Print releases allow, but do not guarantee the quality of, products printed outside of the online gallery or direct orders. Print kiosks at local stores (Target, Walmart, Costco, Walgreens, etc.) are not recommended.  

    Can I customize my session or wedding package?

    Yes! Sessions can be customized with the following options:

    • Additional time: $200/hr (can be added in 30-minute increments)

    • Additional people: $25/person

    Weddings can be fully customized to meet your specific needs. Additional information will be provided upon request.
