Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book?

1. Go over the pricing info on my website.

2. Fill out my contact form HERE.

3. Schedule in your WebEx call and we will discuss the collection you're interested in.

4. Sign the contract and pay the retainer fee to officially reserve your date. 

What if I don't want an engagement session?

The engagement session is complimentary because I want to connect with you before your wedding day and get you comfortable in front of the camera! Opting out of the engagement session does not change the collection cost but you are welcome to swap it out for a bridal session or one year anniversary session.

Can you work with both natural and artificial light?

YES! I am very confident in any lighting situations.

How much is your wedding retainer fee?

The non-refundable retainer fee is $500 and comes off the final balance.

Final balance is due one month before your event!

What is your turn around time?

For wedding collections, it takes 6-8 weeks to cull, edit, and deliver your final gallery. I do not enjoy making you wait at all so I do provide a sneak peek within one week! I care about making sure I take the necessary time to creatively cull and edit your images. 

For portrait sessions, I promise to get them to you in three weeks. Images are delivered via online and you have the ability to download the images in digital files and share them with your friends/fam!

Can you recommend other vendors?

Absolutely! I have a handful of favorite friendors that I work with often! 

How much do you charge for travel?

I am willing to drive anywhere in NC and surrounding states. The first 60 miles one-way to your location is included. Anything over 60 miles is an additional $0.60 per mile from Elkin, NC. Anything over 150 miles requires a one-night hotel stay and anything over 250 miles requires a two-night hotel stay. If you are booking an out-of-state wedding, flight and hotel boarding will be required. 

How can I get to know you better?

I am always up to grab a coffee or cocktail any time as long as my schedule aligns with yours!

What if I have more questions?

Let's schedule a time to chat and I can answer all of your questions!

Karena was absolutely amazing

My husband and I had a small intimate wedding in November but the one thing we wanted to make sure to invest in was our wedding photographer. Karena was absolutely amazing, she is so full of life and fun energy and made our whole experience fun. Her photography is absolutely gorgeous, she was able to create the most beautiful feeling behind each picture. I couldn’t recommend her enough, she went above and beyond what I even thought was possible. ❤️
