Molly Smith Photography

Frequently Asked Questions


What kind of photography do you offer?

I offer photography for weddings and families! This includes elopements, engagement sessions, family portraits, newborn photos, and maternity photos.

What are your prices?

My wedding packages start at $2,250 and my general portrait sessions start at $400! All wedding packages include complimentary engagement sessions.

Will you travel?

Absolutely! I love any and all excuses to travel.

What do I wear?

Wear what you feel comfortable in! You will look your best when you feel your best. That being said, I always suggest wearing neutral or clean colors that will never go out of style. Bold patterns and colors can often take away from what's really important- you!

Where do you like to shoot?

I will first ask you what vibes you are going for in your session. Whether it is a more urban style or rural style you are going for, I have tons of great spots up my sleeve! For newborn sessions, I love doing them at home. It is easy, less stressful, and cozy!

When is the best time to take Maternity and Newborn photos?

For maternity photos I recommend anywhere from 32-36 weeks, whatever you are the most comfortable with! As for newborn photos, it may seem rushed and you may seem stressed, but the first two weeks after baby is born are the BEST times to get newborn photos done. They most likely haven't gotten their baby acne yet, and they are still extra sleepy which makes my job much easier!!

How many photos will I receive and how?

Typically for each hour you book with me, you will receive around 65-85 high resolution edited images. All of your photos will be delivered to you through an online gallery in which you can download and share whatever you would like!

How long will it take to receive my gallery?

For general sessions I try my absolute best to get you your gallery within three to four weeks! For weddings, my timeline is typically within six to eight weeks! I ALWAYS send a handful of images within the first two to three days after our session as sneak peeks.

I'm nervous we will be awkward!

Oh. My. Gosh. I get it. I totally get it and why you feel that way! Here's my answer: you will not be awkward! I promise! I do everything in my power to make sure you do not feel awkward. No awkward poses, no awkward moments of silence, nothing. I keep music playing and I keep the small talk flowing. It will feel like you are just hanging out with a new friend!

How do we book you?!

Easy! Just head to my contact page and fill out the form! I will send you all of my session, package, and pricing options so we can figure out exactly what we want to do! Once a 50% retainer is paid and a contract is signed, you are BOOKED! The second half of your session fee is due the day of your session for general portrait sessions and one month before your wedding day for wedding packages!
