FAQ

Where are you located?

I'm located in San Antonio, Texas, but I am available to travel! have photographed weddings in Austin, Luling, Kerrville, Houston, & Cancun, Mexico. {I have my passport ready to go!}

 

I want you to shoot my wedding, what's the next step?

Seriously, nothing makes me happier! I'm so excited to meet you! During our consultation together, we'll go over all the details, including your contract. Once I receive a signed copy of your wedding contract & a $600 retainer, your date is officially saved. Yay!

 

Do you accept payments?

I sure do! I want this process to be as simple as possible, especially for you! Once the $600 retainer is paid for, you can make payments between the time we meet for your consultation & your wedding day.

 

Do you create custom wedding packages?

I do offer base packages to keep it simple for my busy brides, but I can create a custom package that includes everything you need, want + more. We can add an extra session, albums, & canvas prints. Less hours, more hours, we can do that! Let me know what you have in mind & we can go from there.

 

Will my package include a DVD or a USB?

Insetead of a DVD or a USB, you will be receiving your very own online gallery! It's awesome & all of my couples (& their families) LOVE it! You’ll be able to download all of your images straight from your very own online gallery & so can your family and friends. They are the same edited, high resolution photographs you would receive from a USB or DVD, but you don’t have to wait for something to arrive in the mail! The online gallery is available for all portrait sessions and weddings.

 

Where should we take our portraits?

Communication is key! What do you have in mind? Where do you envision yourself? In an open field with tall grass? Crossing the street in downtown? Your engagement portraits are all about you & your love. What do yall like to do for fun? Are you total bookworms and spend hours at barnes & noble? Do you love coffee shops & bike riding? Let's incorporate that! & what about family portraits? Same thing! Let's have a paint party, a picnic, a bike ride! The possibilities are endless!

 

What should I wear?

My only rule is that you should wear something that makes you feel comfortable, something that is you! All of my portrait sessions include an extra outfit change, so feel free to bring a casual look & a dressy look, or make them both casual! It's totally up to you!

 

Three words to describe your style?

Clean. Romantic. Fun.

 

Do you shoot more than one event on my wedding day?

When a couple reserves me for their wedding date, they are my only clients that day. Your wedding is my number one priority and I do not book additional portrait sessions or other events on the same day as a couple’s wedding. Not only am I the owner of Cupcake Photography, but I’m also the main photographer. So if you decide to book with Cupcake, I will be the one photographing your wedding & possibly a second shooter.

 

How did you start Cupcake Photography?

I first started my business with a friend of mine, while studying for my B.F.A at The University of Texas at San Antonio. After a year of working together, my friend informed me that he was ready to take on new projects & no longer wanted to focus on weddings. I was crushed. Could I really go on without shooting weddings? Would I ever be brave enough to shoot a wedding all alone? I really took the time to think about it, & the truth was...I just couldn't leave weddings behind. I'm kinda obsessed with weddings!

 

Why do you love weddings so much?

What's not to love? I love every single detail that goes into them. I was a bride myself, so I know exactly what it feels like. I truly enjoy what I do & my goal is for my clients to see that with every single photo that I give to them. I have photographed so many weddings over the years & at the end of the day, it's not just the actual wedding day that makes my heart skip a beat; it's the union of two families becoming one. Marriage is wonderful!

 

What is Custom Photography?

I value my clients & I enjoy listening to your love story. In my mind, love stories aren't just about the love between a couple. A love story is about an entire family. My goal is to create a session that will reflect you and your love story in every possible way. Comfort, patience, and understanding are very important to me. I treat my clients, exactly the way I myself, would like to be treated. Personally as a photographer, I believe it is very important to listen. I love when my brides feel comfortable enough to talk to me about their wedding plans & their vision for their engagement portraits I believe in honesty & love, I want your photographs to portray that.

 

Why the name "cupcake photography"?

I think cupcakes are super cute & delicious. That's what I want my photos to look like: cute & delicious. Have you ever been angry with a cupcake in your hand? Exactly. It's impossible.
