Welcome to my FAQ Page!

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, Lume means “flame” or “light”. Light is an important element in a photograph. :)

Right now I’m focusing mainly on elopements and intimate weddings (small, intentional weddings), couples photos, and ReWild Sessions (available for individuals or couples).  It’s important to me that I be able to give my clients all the attention and care they deserve, so my openings are limited. But, if you have questions about another type of photo session, please reach out and let me know what you’re thinking! If I can’t accommodate, I can probably refer you to another amazing photographer.

Yes, it’s just me and my camera. I’d love to be able to hang out as your friend, be a part of the day, celebrate with you, and disappear when needed. This allows me to capture all the authentic, natural, moments and emotions in photos that are meaningful to you. And you’ll love not feeling any pressure or expectations. When another photographer or assistant comes in, it takes away from that experience.

All areas within 3 hours of the Keweenaw are included in my prices. Outside of this area, a flat, all-inclusive travel fee will be added to your total, based on the destination and time of year. I am happy to give you more info!

I am not a wedding planner. I will, however, give you ideas, referrals, help with your timeline – every step of the way, but (unless you book the all-inclusive elopement experience) you’ll need to make decisions, contact people, book your vendors, and make your own reservations.

If you’re interested in working with a professional planner, I can totally hook you up with a few referrals!

If there’s anyone who understands feeling awkward in front of a camera it’s me! Trust me when I say this is something you won’t have to worry about at all with me.

You’ll receive a link to a beautiful, private online gallery that you can easily share with anyone you’d like! The online gallery makes it simple to view and download all of your images and GIFs, and includes an online store where you can order gift prints, wall art, albums, and more!

*You will need a computer to download your photos in high-resolution. The gallery has limited capabilities on phones & tablets.

Definitely! Just ask and I’ll send you examples of full galleries that I’ve delivered to real clients so you can get a better idea of what that looks like.

Nope! Lume Photography has been around since 2011, and Lume Cannabis only since 2019. Although I have shopped there, lol! Their pet CBD is amazing, btw.
