FAQ

WILL YOU PHOTOGRAPH MY WEDDING?

If you love my work and want to have me along then yes! All people and celebrations are welcome here.

WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?

You can find starting prices for portraits, weddings, and elopements on my pricing page. Pricing is based on me as your photographer and full event coverage. Most weddings range from 6-10+ hours and include coverage of getting ready, ceremony, portraits, dinner, and reception. Custom pricing is available for shorter celebrations, elopements, travel, second photographers, products, etc. Email me for detailed information.

WHAT’S YOUR APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS?

To document absolutely everything with as little influence from me as possible. Instead of overwhelming you and your guests with a big photography production, I aim to keep my presence calm and low to capture everything from details and key moments to candids and all the supporting characters celebrating with you. Keeping my presence low for most of your wedding helps you and your loved ones feel comfortable with me so I can create genuinely natural images. With that said, I do step in and give guided direction when needed, especially during family and couples portraits.

WE’VE NEVER BEEN PHOTOGRAPHED. CAN YOU HELP?

You’re not alone and I’m here to help! Most couples haven’t been photographed, let alone together, and feel nervous being photographed. These feelings are normal. The experience I give revolves around giving guided direction so you feel more confident and like yourselves in your photos. We will extensively talk about image style so I better understand you as a couple and what you’re hoping to get from your images.

CAN WE HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?

Of course! Second photographers aren’t always necessary but can be helpful, especially at longer/larger weddings with several locations. My second photographers are always full time professionals so the images are high quality and can be edited to be consistent with mine.

My go-to second photographer is my fiance, Todd, who has been photographing with me since our business began. I do have options for when he isn’t available.

DO YOU TRAVEL? WHAT COSTS ARE INVOLVED?

I do travel! Some of my favorite places to work are the San Francisco bay area, Moab, Portland, and Los Angeles. Travel fees include 2 nights hotel and airfare.

ARE YOU LGBTQ+ FRIENDLY?

Yes! My second photographers and I are fully inclusive. All are welcome and celebrated!

WHAT GEAR DO YOU USE?

I currently use Nikon D850s, Nikon D750s, and 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm prime lenses. All cameras, lenses, memory cards, and batteries have several backups that don’t leave my side. My gear is maintained, reliable, and professional quality.

CAN WE MEET BEFORE BOOKING?

Of course! I’m always available and open to as much communication as my clients need and encourage we touch base several times before your wedding. During COVID-19 I’m strictly meeting via video call/phone call.

HOW DO WE HIRE YOU?

Start by either filling out my contact form here or emailing me directly at elishabraithwaite@gmail.com. Tell me about your wedding such as your date, location, and any other applicable information you would like to share. We’ll talk about pricing and image style to make sure you get exactly what you’re looking for. When you’re ready I’ll send an agreement so we can tackle the deposit and get to planning.
