At Rustic Honey Art & Co. our all inclusive pricing reflects the experience we bring to light in your story. I pride myself on the authenticity and the organic naturalness of my efforts and the character that the clients bring to my imagery.
YOU'RE NOT JUST INVESTING IN US, WE'RE INVESTING IN YOU
With my husband being active duty & myself a traveling photographer alongside him, we have made many long term friends all over the country from past clients, which goes to show how much I care about YOU. Every piece of your experience is an important highlight in your story, so the hard sales don't happen here. After your photo session, you will given an opportunity to select luxury heirloom keepsakes, from canvas groupings to handcrafted frames and memory boxes, to ensure that all your finest moments are preserved to last and that you're leaving with something more than tangible. We also never want you having to leave any precious moments behind, so every detail and transient moment that you see in your gallery, you get, and of all our collections provide several prints of your choosing in various sizes, as well as a carefully designed gift handcrafted by yours truly. Your session fee includes the session experience and all retouched images from your gallery in digital form when booking a full session. A complimentary linen canvas or custom canvas photo album is also included in all full session bookings. Typically working outside the normalities of photography, I offer flexibility and my collections tend to fit the needs of most. But customizing a package is easy and I am happy to do so to meet your budget and needs. I want to make sure your experience is as smooth, seamless, and honest as possible.

If you would like to add - on a second photographer to your collection, we can most certainly do so! I have some beautiful and talented creatives I love to hang with, that would be thrilled to join me on your next adventure. You can determine whether you wish to use them for only a few hours or utilize them to their entirety, we can always discuss that over wine and charcuterie boards. Adding a secondary photographer will be an additional $45 / hour.

A little rain never hurt nobody & truthfully I LOVE the rain. let's get in touch with your wild, and get lost in that free - spirit.. PLUS rain makes everything more romantic right? however, due to severe weather it would be best to reschedule and if you are unable to cancel to reschedule, I would recommend finding an indoor backup location.

ANYWHERE!!! I love capturing self - love & all that connection in meaningful locations. If it means packing my bags and coming to you, making things easier, then it's my ultimate pleasure and WHERE DO I SIGN UP?! As you know travel fees are extra, but hey, if you think about it, you can always get other friends and family to book too & just split the travel fees! *mind blown / face palm right? I know*
