The Booking Process

take me to the
contact form!

What the whhaattttt, I'm pumped! Head on over to my 'Contact' page and fill out the form - this way I can gather some details about you, your date and your day. We'll chat whether it's via call, FaceTime, and/or email. From there it's a signed digital contract and a 50%  non-refundable retainer to make us besties for the resties.

I do! I'm based in Greenville, SC but I'm happy to go anywhere! There is no travel fee within 60 miles of Greenville. Sometimes the fee will be waived based on location in the Southeast, depending on day of week or time of year though. For other international or out-of-state weddings, I will give you a custom quote! 

we're ready to book - now what?

Do you travel? is it an extra cost?



Portrait sessions, you can expect to receive around 30-55 images. For weddings, depending on the length of your day, 350-700+. I really don't put a cap on what I deliver! What I don't include are the images with eyes closed, duplicates, etc.

Your beautiful full-resolution images will be available in an online gallery available for you to download, print, share, etc. For portrait sessions, I deliver the galleries within 1-2 weeks. For wedding galleries - it depends on the season! I try to deliver everything within 4 weeks but if I'm in the trenches of wedding season, sometimes it's 6 weeks!

how many images can we expect?

How and when will we recieve
our photos?



As many as you want! We can venture to a few locations as well, if times allows. As far as what to wear - generally speaking, anything with minimal pattern and neutral colors. Skip anything too bright - love me some neon, but we don't want your skin to reflect that color! I want you to feel comfortable and like your BEST selves. If an over-sized cardigan is your staple, wear it. You live your life with your hair on top of your head? ME TOO. Long flowy dress and a button-down with some jeans? Doooo it.

For a portrait session, how many outfit changes can I have?
What should we wear?



Well, yes and no. I will send out a questionnaire a few weeks prior to the wedding asking what family/friend grouping photos you would like and any other extra details to photograph (ex. your grandfather's passed-down watch or great-aunt's necklace you're wearing). As far as anything else, no. I am there to capture moments as they happen, not create fake ones. If your hair and make up team finishes early and I haven't arrived yet, I really don't want it to be posed.. I don't want you to remember that moment when you look back on that super posed photo! I'll guide you and prompt you when necessary to evoke the real magic and the real moments.

Do we need to give you a list of poses we like or shots we want?



If you've booked an engagement session, we'll make a date for that! I reserve all weekend dates for weddings but my weekday evenings are usually open for any lifestyle sessions. 

Leading up to the wedding, more and more details continually come together. At around the 6-week mark, I'll send the pre-wedding questionnaire. This is where I'll have all the info for the fellow vendors, any important phone numbers, family shot list, and more! We'll also work together to get a timeline finalized for the day. And at this point you'll have a good feel on if you'd like to add more hours of coverage - which is always an option!

You're not the only one counting down to your wedding day! Better be prepared for a big hug and an awesome time.. I'm there to capture the whole tear-soaked day! Within a week, you'll have a sneak peek of the day in your inbox to share with the world and a few weeks later, you'll have the whole gallery! SAWOON.

So two things to make this thing officially officially - a signed contract and the 50% non-refundable retainer. It's just the retainer up front and the remaining balance isn't due until 30 days prior to the big day! As soon as I've received both items, your date has been closed on my calendar! 

and a general timeline of working together

Booking Details

Kelsey + Sam

we made for our wedding. She is so funny, kind, laid back and fit into our wedding day seamlessly. Working with her felt like hanging out with an old friend; she is very easy going and has a gift for making you feel at ease in front of a camera.

Not to mention - she is incredibly talented at what she does and captured our wedding day beautifully! I am so blown away by our wedding day gallery and feel like I am re-living the day every time I look at it.

I am so thankful that we found Carissa - our wedding day would not have been the same with anyone else!

Booking Carissa was hands down one of the best decisions 

My goal is to make sure your wedding day is everything you want it to be. I am your home team, your friend, your confidant from the moment I step onto your big day location.

I strive to tell your story.
