FAQ's

Travel?

I do travel and have been all around the world. I am currently home based in the Heart of America. All sessions are the same price however traveling fees will be applied.

Turn-around time?

Anywhere from 2 weeks to 4  week for Portrait Sessions. Weddings usually take around 4-8 weeks. This is due to my busy schedule and the amount of clients I accept each month. Some months are slower than others so turn around time may vary.

How long have you been a photographer?

I started using a camera in 2011 and created HM Arts in 2018. A passionate hobby that was turned into a business.

Do you copyright images?

You will receive two separate galleries. One will be watermarked and the other will not be. The ones that are not water marked are meant for Printing, and will be in the Print Gallery. These images are only used for printing, if you try to use them for web purposes they will come out blurry.
The web gallery is for sharing only. If you try to use these for printing they will come out blurry due to their smaller quality size. This is why I water mark the social media ones.
