What should I wear to the photo shoot?

Good question. If you were going out on the town, what would you were? That's a good place to start. I suggest that you wear something that you feel comfortable in. Rule of thumb: busy patterns make for busy pictures and wear your makeup heavier than what you do daily. Keep in mind that Charleston can be hot so think about materials that breathe and don't show sweat too bad. If you need more ideas check out my Pinterest board here.

How long will it take us to get out photos?

I strive for as soon as possible. I work to keep my schedule in line and not overbooked so that I can get you your photos quickly.

I don't know what to do in front the camera. Will your photographer direct me?

Of course! I've been shooting professionally and have been in the business for years {I don't want to mention how many cuz that might give away my age} and will definitely give you ideas + tips on the best poses.
