Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER TO BE YOUR STYLE?
Photojournalistic and Romantic.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS?
I have been photographing weddings professionally since 2008 and portraits since 2006. I've been tinkering with photographs since 1997.
DO YOU SHOOT FILM?
Yes, I do! If you're interested in having film photographs taken at your wedding, ask me!
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?
For a typical 10 hour wedding day you'll receive anywhere from 700 - 1000 high resolution, professionally edited images.
WILL WE BE ABLE TO MAKE OUR OWN PRINTS OR ALBUMS?
I offer professional, full service album design, along with enlargements and other products. However, you can certainly make your own prints or build your own album if you choose. I'll be happy to recommend consumer services that I like and trust.
CAN I SWAP OUT THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION OR REMOVE IT FROM THE PACKAGE?
Not at this time. Engagement sessions are complimentary wherever they are included, and are fun and romantic to boot!
DO YOU ACCEPT A SHOT LIST?
Every wedding is different and if I were to accept a shot list, or a list describing how moments should be seen, it would 1) impede creativity, and 2) take the uniqueness out of your wedding photographs. For that reason, I accept only a list of formal family portraits so that you can relax while I take care of the rest.
DO YOU HAVE BACK UP EQUIPMENT AND LIABILITY INSURANCE?
I carry multiple back up cameras and other related gear. A certificate of liability can be furnished at your venue's request.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VIDEOGRAPHY?
Be sure to book a videographer that matches your style, just like you would your photographer. I would be happy to chat with your videographer if you decide to book one, so that we can work as a team and coordinate what works best for you.
HAVE YOU WORKED AT MY VENUE BEFORE?
We are in a bustling urban region with a variety of venue options, so there is a chance that I have not worked at your venue before. However, being a seasoned professional, that does not prevent me at all from being able to take great images at your wedding. Often, if I haven't worked at a venue before, I will scout before-hand if the location is within a reasonable distance. If your wedding requires an overnight stay, I would arrive early on the day(s) before to study the various areas available for photographs.
WHERE CAN I READ YOUR REVIEWS?
ARE YOU LGBTQ FRIENDLY?
Absolutely no homophobia, no transphobia, and no bigotry here. I stand up for the most vulnerable.
DO YOU TRAVEL AND IS THERE A TRAVEL FEE?
Yes, I do travel, and distance does not prevent me from being available to document your wedding day. If your wedding requires flying or an overnight stay, we can discuss a fee that will cover the basics.
ARE WE A GOOD FIT?
Let's schedule a skype chat or phone call to find out!
HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR DATE?
If you want to book your date, I will prepare a wedding agreement for you to review and sign, and 50% of your total is due as a retainer to secure your date. I accept Chase Quick Pay, or Check. Once the retainer and signed agreement are received, your date is booked. The balance is then due 4 weeks prior to your wedding date.
