How do I book you?

First things first, shoot me an email! We will chat about your needs (either via email OR over coffee/wine) and see if we are a good fit for each other. If we are,  I will send you an invoice and contract!

To secure your date with us, you just need to submit 30% of whatever collection you choose that best suits your wedding needs. This is a non-refundable deposit that goes towards your overall collection cost. In addition, we require a signed contract. After that, your date is secured and we are yours for the day!


What do people usually spend with you?

Wedding clients usually spend an average of $4000. Contact us via email carmen@forgetmeknotphoto.com and we’ll send you brochure with prices and more information.


How long in advance do we have to book you?

If you plan to get married on a Friday or Saturday like most people do, you should contact us as soon as you know the exact date. There are only 52 weekends a year and many couples are looking for a photographer 9-12 months in advance.


What equipment do you use?

I’m a Canon girl. No reason other than that’s what I started learning on back in 2004! I use top of the line gear with backup gear including lighting for low light venues. My favorite lens is my 35L 1.2.


How would you describe your shooting and editing style?

I love creamy, rich, contrasted images. I love to play with light to make my subjects look the best they can whether that means using natural lighting or an external flash to get the vibe we want. I always shoot for best lighting first. That is the most important!


Will you travel to shoot my wedding?

Yes, we are more than happy to travel the country or even overseas to shoot your wedding. If you are outside of Ohio you may be subject to a travel fee, however this is on a case by case basis. Prices will be discussed beforehand to cover flights, accommodations and any other travel expenses.


Do you have liability insurance?

Absolutely! Just ask and I will be happy to provide your venue with the certificate.


How many pictures do we get?

That depends on how long we stay at your wedding, on the number of guests, how large your wedding party is, and decor but also on your needs. We place more importance on quality over quantity! You can expect around 50-100 images an hour.


Do you do other types of photography?

I do! I love shooting families, high school seniors & boudoir!


Do you offer Videography?

I don’t, however I do know many amazing videographers who I love to work with and would be happy to send you referrals for them and any other vendors you may need for your day!


Do you shoot digital or film?

For my clients I shoot digital.
