FAQ / What to Expect

How do I secure a date?

Let's talk dates! Fill out my contact form or send me an email to get the process started. After receiving a non-refundable, 20% retainer to secure the date in my calendar, we can start the process of planning your photoshoot!

¿Hablas español?

¡Sí! No soy un hablante nativa, pero estoy emocionada de ayudarte con tus fotos en inglés y español.

Do I need to know how to pose?

Of course not! Most people don't spend everyday in front of a big camera. Leave that up to me! (It is perfectly normal to feel nervous before taking photos. We'll have fun, and I promise those nerves will go away in no time.)

How do I receive my photos?

After your photos have been sorted and edited, a customized gallery will be created for you to view online in 1-2 weeks (3-4 weeks for full weddings). From there, they're all yours! You can instantly download the high-resolution pictures and order prints of your favorite shots, as well as share them to social media.

Do you travel?

Absolutely! My roots are planted right here in KC, and I'm happily servicing the Kansas City area. For an additional rate, I'll be wherever you are -- be it Topeka, Texas, or Tokyo.

Why "stingray?"

I was named Samantha Rae. This quickly earned my little self the nickname "manta rae," and the rest was history.
