Where are you located?
I get to call the lovely West Coast my home! I am specifically based out of Central California, but have had the privilege to shoot weddings all over. I’m passport ready, too! Where are we going? I do require a traveling fee if you’re outside of Fresno County. Fees vary on your desired location.
How would you describe your photography style?
I am a modern, natural light lifestyle and wedding photographer. I focus more on the authenticity of a moment versus an overly posed, stuffy image. You can expect my images to have a more light and airy feel with a hint of warmth. My images are never over edited (my philosophy is less is more!) and my core is highlighting you at your best. I want to see your hair move with the wind and have you laughing until it hurts. You should always feel comfortable and that will always remain a priority for me. When you’re comfortable, your experience and images will be a direct reflection of that. If you are down to do anything for the shot (within reason, of course), we just might be the perfect match!
How far in advance should we book a session or wedding with you?
I recommend booking as soon as you have your date and venue, about six to twelve months in advance. I take a limited amount of weddings a year to be sure to give my full attention to each couple.
How do we book you?
Once I have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that our Wedding Experience is exactly what you’re looking for on your wedding day, the next step is to book! Send me over a message and we’ll get planning! I require a digital contract to be signed and a non-refundable deposit to hold and secure your date.
Should I bring anything to our family session?
YES! Bring a beverage and snack, especially for your little ones. All that modeling can be hard work! Feel free to bring a blanket or something small you’d like to incorporate into your session. AND most of all bring a happy heart and smile!
What should we wear to our session?
I thought you’d never ask! Ha! Your outfit choices in my opinion are a very important. Style is important as it helps dress the image. Focus on the environment we are shooting in, as well as your personal features. It doesn’t hurt to keep the climate in mind, too. I work hard at making sure my Pinterest board for outfit suggestions is always up to date and is loaded with good options. You can check it out here: https://www.pinterest.com/daniellewraith/
What if I do not want the complimentary engagement session?
I highly recommend choosing to do the complimentary engagement session even if you have already done one. The first reason is because this time helps you get to know who I am behind the camera, and I get to know who you are in front of it. This is the best way to ensure that you are comfortable with me as your photographer and to build trust. I want you to feel like I am a friend on your wedding day and not a stranger! Lastly, it is also a way to get more practice in front of the camera which will help your newlywed portraits turn out better. If you choose to not utilize the complimentary engagement session, I can not give a discount or deduct the value of an engagement session from the total of the wedding package.
Do you have a second shooter?
I believe that second shooters are extremely valuable because I cannot be in two places at once, that is where my second shooter comes into play and allows more perspectives to be captured! Because of this, I do offer second shooter options! Please contact me to see what my different wedding collections offer.
Do you edit all of our photos?
Yes, once I have gone through the images for your gallery, I lightly edit and color correct. Being that I am a lifestyle photographer, I don’t over-edit my images. I don’t do any airbrushing or body manipulation whatsoever. I do, however, remove any noticeable blemishes or anything that doesn’t compliment the photograph.
What is the turnaround for us to receive our online gallery of images? how do we get our images?
Portrait and engagement turnaround is 2 weeks and wedding galleries typically are given 6-8 weeks post wedding. Each session is placed on an online gallery that is password protected and easy to download!
Can we see other images taken from the session besides the ones given in the gallery?
No. Please know you are thought of during the editing process and I have chosen the best images from our session together. I do not release any additional, unedited or untouched (RAW) images. There is no reason to have an image in an unflattering angle or a shot not entirely in focus. I’ve got your best interest at heart. Promise.
What happens if you’re sick on our wedding day?
If I am sick to the point I cannot photograph your wedding, or if there is an emergency, then I would make all the arrangements needed for another professional photographer with a similar style to shoot the wedding.
Do you have a vendors list?
I do have a list of wonderful vendors that I would recommend to any couple! Once we connect I would be happy to share this list with you.
