Frequently Asked Questions
How long have you been shooting?
I went to college at the University of Northern Iowa for Photography and Marketing, and I shot my first wedding in 2012. From there, I grew my skill by second shooting and eventually taking on my own weddings. Grace T. Photography has been official for three whole years!
What type of equipment do you use?
I shoot on my two Canon 5DMarkiii's and I love using my primes lenses. My 35 mm Canon is my favorite!
Do you travel to shoot engagements and weddings?
ABSOLUTELY! Travel is my middle name! I have shot weddings/engagements in South Padre, TX, Punta Cana in the Dominican, Southern California, Colorado, Iceland, Ireland, and Hawaii! I even have a special list of places that are on MY bucket list that if you have your wedding there, I give you an extra something special! Reach out and ask about my list to hear more about it! I take between 3-5 destination weddings a year, so please reach out for a custom quote!
What's included in your wedding packages?
I offer a few different packages depending on your needs for your big day. All collections include me as your head shooter (except for the associate package), a complimentary hour engagement session, and an online gallery to share with family and friends. If you'd like more or less, there are options to customize your wedding day coverage as well.
Do you offer products?
Yes! Starting in 2019, I will be offering heirloom albums. I believe that your photos are meant to be printed to have and to hold, just like your sweetie. You can add on as á la carte items after your wedding day and are separate from your wedding/boudoir package.
When will we see our gorgeous images?
For all small shoots and engagement sessions, they will be back to you in 2-3 weeks or less. For your wedding day, your online gallery will be sent to you in 4 weeks or less.
How many images do we get?
For all small sessions and engagement sessions you'll receive between 50-70, and for weddings, depending on your coverage, you'll receive between 600-800 images.
Can anyone else take photos while you're taking photos?
I prefer if guests/family members refrain from taking photos (with any type of device or camera) during posed shots like portraits, bridal party, and family photos. The other cameras flash may effect my photos or may distract the people in the photo to look another way. As a general rule, I do not allow guests to shadow me on weddings and reserve the right to kindly tell a guest these rules. I believe an "unplugged" wedding is the best way to go so your guests are present during your special day!
Can we edit the images you give us?
NO THANK YOU and here's why: I have spent years perfecting my style and tweaking it so it is unique to me. When hiring me, I assume you like my posing and editing style and don't want to change a thing. I spend hours and hours editing your photos, and I die a little inside when anyone puts an Instagram filter over top and cry myself to sleep, so please don't break my heart!
