HOW SOON SHOULD I BOOK my wedding WITH YOU?
It absolutely depends on the date, for prime wedding season dates (May-August) The sooner you can get your date reserved the better. contact me to check the availability of your date!
I am currently limiting bookings to 3 weddings per month; I accept bookings up to 1 year in advance.
** For portrait sessions (engagements, bridals, boudoir) last minute bookings are often available, though I would recommend contacting me at least 2 weeks prior to the week you would like to shoot.
How far in advance should I schedule my pre-wedding photos?
For Engagements I recommend shooting a minimum of 6 weeks before your wedding date, and for Bridals a minimum of 4 weeks prior to your date if you want prints ready to display on your wedding day. *Keep in mind that processing time for pre-wedding sessions is 14 days after client selects are made from the proof gallery, and you will require time to print.
**Rush processing is an option depending on Summer’s current workload and availability. A fee will be assessed for faster turn around times
How much wedding coverage do I need?
Every wedding is unique and requires unique coverage. My minimum wedding day coverage is for up to 5 hours, which generally covers Ceremony + Reception depending on the specific timeline and itinerary for the day. For a more complete documenting of your day (getting ready photos prior to ceremony, etc) You will need more coverage for your big day (6-8 hours)!

** I do not shoot fully nude boudoir.
Do you shoot families?
The best way to get a family portrait session with me is to watch my social media for mini session dates. Since my schedule stays fairly full between my commercial clients and wedding work, all other sessions are subject to my availability and mini sessions provide the best opportunity for those other sessions
