FAQ's


FAQ's


Let's Talk Details...

What is your style?

When I think of my style the words authentic, joyful, and romantic come to mind. I love candid moments! I do pose my clients for photos, but I love making my clients laugh and capturing those real moments. On a wedding day my approach is half portraiture and half photo journalistic. I consider myself a storyteller of authentic moments. I love light and bright photos that express the joy of the couple. I want my clients to look back on their wedding and re-live the moments that they shared together through viewing their photo collection.

How many images will we get and how long will it take to get my photos back?

Wedding clients can expect 75-100 images per hour. Most of my clients receive around 600-900 images for a full wedding day.

My clients can expect their full resolution gallery within 6 weeks of their event.

What equipment do you use?

I shoot with a Canon 5d Mark iii, and a range of L lenses on wedding days. My 50mm 1.2 lens is my all time favorite!

What do you charge for travel expenses?

Travel within 90 minutes of Waynesboro, VA is included in every wedding collection.

Do you recommend booking a second shooter?

Booking a second shooter is a great idea! My clients will receive at least 150 more images as part of their gallery when they hire a second shooter. It also provides my clients with more candid images of their guests on the wedding day, because often my second shooter and I divide and conquer the shot list. It is not necessary to book a second shooter, it does however provide a nice safety net in case of an unforeseen emergency.

What is your plan if you are ill or an emergency arises?

Booking a second photographer is a great solution to this potential problem. This has not been an issue in the past, but I will do everything that I can to ensure that you still have a wedding photographer on the day of your event. I cannot however control acts of God that might make it impossible for me to line up another photographer. Let’s pray that nothing of the nature happens!

How much is the deposit?

Clients are expected to make a non-refundable deposit of $350 when the contract is signed to save the wedding date.

When is the balance due?

The balance of the wedding collection is due two weeks before the day of the event.

What are our rights in terms of the images and how they can be used?

After you have received your gallery please feel free to share your images with your friends and family. I love for my clients to share their images through social media, I do ask my clients to leave the edits on the images in the same format as the client received them. They are your photos...please enjoy!

Sweet Notes


Sweet Notes


I am blessed to work with some incredible couples, here's what they've been saying...

S&L-444.jpg

"Lisa was a dream to work with for our engagement and wedding photos! She is bright, sweet, funny, creative, and professional! While having a plan for poses she wanted to capture, she was extremely open to our ideas too. Our favorite photographs were the candid ones which shows the versatility with which Lisa shoots. She also handled organizing a large group with ease and in a timely manner between the ceremony and reception. We are extremely happy with the quality of Lisa's work and now have these precious photographs to look back on. If you are looking for a photographer who truly cares about her clients, makes the day go smoothly, and is easy to work with, Lisa Mims has it all!" LINDSEY + SHAWN

"We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Lisa as our wedding photographer! We knew she was the perfect fit for us when we first met for coffee! Lisa is easy-going, light hearted, funny, and an expert at making anyone comfortable in front of a camera! Lisa has a great variety of photography packages at very reasonable prices. She made my engagement session dreams come true by trecking out into the snow and into a vineyard at sunset on a hot day! We have loved all of our products from her and will cherish the memories we have through her incredible talent. We can't wait to work with her in the future!" KATIE + DEVON

"We loved working with Lisa Mims! She was absolutely wonderful and made our wedding day go so easily.We had a few shots we wanted but primarily we let her get photos that were unique to us, photos that really showed people who we are. We also are so nervous that most of our photos we have awkward poses. But not with Lisa! She was so good at making everything feel so comfortable. She has an eye for locations that made us feel right. The day of she was amazing. In a hectic day for us and making sure everything was on time, she always kept the pictures clicking and we never were rushed. She took and edited so many photos for us. Our families and friends loved them. She returned the finished product much quicker than any of our friends who used other photographers. We loved all of our photos looked so natural. She found locations that just seemed right. Her editing is the right amount of enhancement of colors. Lisa is a joy to work with. She is very responsive. She is always cheery during photo shoots. She always delivers a great product. We highly recommend Lisa Mims for your photography needs. BLAIR + BRYAN

"First of all, I have to note how professional and on-top-of-it Lisa was from the beginning. I did not have a clue what to talk about and didn't know exactly what I wanted. With her help and her wealth of experience, we were able to figure things out pretty easily. I really appreciate Lisa's diligence and quick action at my wedding too. I never wondered where she was and if she would miss a neat photo opportunity. She was everywhere she needed to be, which was wonderful! I never had to worry about getting certain pictures taken. Plus, she got some wonderful pictures of things that were happening away from the center of attention that really added to the experience. I would definitely recommend Lisa as a photographer. She is not only good at what she does, but she is also personable and easy to work with." MARY + YAW

"I hired Lisa Mims Photography for my fall 2015 wedding and what a great choice that was! Lisa went above and beyond to make sure I was happy...she even stood in the rain taking family portraits! Everyone that has seen my wedding photos has complimented on how fantastic they are and I just smile and remember that great choice I made to hire Lisa Mims Photography! " ALICIA + PAUL

"Lisa went out of her way to make our day as special as possible. The moments were carefully captured in each photo and allows us to re-live that special day everytime we look at them! Not only are you getting quality photos that last a lifetime, but also a photographer that cares about your wedding day as much as you!" CAMERON + NIC
