FREQUENTLY asked QUESTIONs
What are your wedding day rates? Please contact me through the contact form above to receive information about rates.
How would you describe your style? I focus my efforts on telling the story of your wedding day through moments. Quite simply put, I love moments, big and small, from your best man getting down on the dance floor to your father fixing your veil just before you walk down the aisle.
Why should we hire you? Because I take photos that show who you two are as a couple; when you show your kids your wedding photos they can get to know who you were when you got married. I am experienced, having shot over 300 weddings, extremely passionate about photography, and truly love what I do. I want you to relive your wedding day every time you look through your wedding album.
How do you handle destination weddings? I am always happy to set up a Skype consult to get to know each other before the big day. I like to arrive to the destination city 2 days before the wedding to assure that I am there in case there are travel delays. At the time of booking I will let you know how much our travel fees are based on the estimated cost of flights, car rental (if necessary), and hotel. I handle all the bookings for travel so you do not have to worry about it.
What is your backup plan? In the unlikely event that I would be unable to shoot your wedding due to something tragic I have a network of wedding photographers I can call in an emergency.
What is the album process? When the gallery is uploaded you will have the opportunity to select your favorites for the album.
Who will be photographing our wedding? Every package includes cover by me & an assistant photographer who covers different angles as well as assists with lighting during portraits.
How do we book? To reserve your wedding date I require a non-refundable retainer & a signed contract which can all be done online once we send over a booking proposal. The payment plan is a 1/3 deposit, 1/3 at 3 months, and 1/3 at 3 weeks before the wedding date.
How do we schedule a session with you? Because of my busy weekend schedule with weddings near and far, I only schedule portrait sessions between Monday-Thursday. I like to start sessions 2 hours before sunset for the best lighting.
Do you shoot details and family formals? Absolutely. Before the wedding day I will finalize family formal list so I know who to cover and I always make sure to cover all the details that make your wedding gorgeous.
What sort of equipment do you bring to a wedding? Your wedding day will only happen once and it is important that a professional photographer have reliable gear and always have a backup just in case something were to go wrong. I bring multiple camera bodies and lens as well as a second photographer to make sure that we capture your day without pause. Here is a list of some of my equipment.
