frequently asked questions
Q: I'M READY TO BOOK! WHAT'S NEXT?
Woohoo! First get in touch for pricing, full galleries and more! From there we can meet up for coffee or cocktails (your choice and it’s on me)- I want to hear all about how you two fell in love, how you envision your big day, and we can chat about all things wedding. Once you're ready to sign the dotted line, you can fill out the contract, send in the retainer and you’re all set!
ALSO COMING SOON: a Facebook support group for all of HereNorth’s brides!! (so excited to be rolling this out!!!)
Q: CAN I SEE A FULL WEDDING GALLERY?
Abso-freakin-lutely! Once you reach out, I would be more than happy to send you one (or two or three)!
Q: WHAT IS THE AVERAGE COST FOR A WEDDING COLLECTION?
I offer wedding collections at different price points, but most of my couples spend about $3,400.00 on their collection. I get it, budgets can be a tricky thing, and while I do believe everybody deserves amazing photographs, at at the end of the day, I've gotta pay my bills too! Get in touch to discuss your options, and if we can make it happen, let's make it happen!
Q: HOW MUCH DO I NEED TO PUT DOWN TO BOOK?
A non- refundable 30% of the total collection cost is required as a retainer to secure your wedding date.
Q: DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
I break up payments into three easy installments. If you need to alter your payment schedule, I am flexible and will work with you- however, all payments are due no later than your wedding date.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR TURN AROUND TIME?
For weddings, my average is 4-6 weeks (if not sooner). For engagement or other sessions, my average is 1-2 weeks.
Q: ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR TRAVEL?
Of course! Traveling has always been a big love of mine, so to pair it up with another great joy- photography- is the ultimate experience. Whether it be a destination wedding or simply an out of state wedding, I am excited to be offering a 15% credit towards the collection of your choice for weddings located outside of the northeastern USA! This means weddings outside of NJ, NY, PA, DE, MD and CT.
Q: DO YOU HAVE BUSINESS INSURANCE?
Yup, wouldn’t leave home without it! :)
Q: WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSIONS?
For engagement sessions, it really depends on when you book your photographer, but I recommend no later than three months before the wedding date- six months before is the sweet spot (weather permitting).
For bridal sessions, again this is determined by when you get your dress. Two to three weeks before the wedding during the week is your best bet.
For weddings, booking about a year to 10 months ahead seems to be the best option regarding availability. This also depends on the month- if it is a popular wedding month like June or October, the earlier you book, the better your chances.
