DO YOU OFFER VIDEOGRAPHY SERVICES? I only offer photography services so that I can devote all my time to providing you with the best quality images of your special day! For recommended videographers, see my preferred wedding professionals list.
WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE? Capturing memories at your wedding requires me to be excellent at several styles of wedding photography. In a typical wedding day there will be times where I will need to work in a traditional style (such as posing for portraits with family and friends), and other times I will need to work in a photojournalism style (such as catching those candid moments of the wedding party getting ready, your parents' tears as your enjoy your first dance, and other moments in which natural emotions flow throughout the day.) I am well versed in many editing styles and love to consult with my clients to provide an editing style that suits their preference, whether it be "light and airy," "moody," or crisp and natural. Feel free to browse through mygallery and take a look!
HOW DO I BOOK YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES? I always love to meet with potential clients to thoroughly discuss the details of their wedding day, see their wedding day vision, and answer any questions to build a custom photography package catered to each clients needs. After our consultation meeting you can secure a date with me by signing a contract and paying a retainer.
WHAT DO YOUR WEDDING PACKAGES INCLUDE? I have several wedding packages with built-in savings that contain the most popular items requested by clients, however I love to meet with my clients to discuss their day and build a custom package to suit their individual needs. From elopements to all day coverage, you can choose from many items to accompany your photography coverage such as an engagement photoshoot, wedding albums, wall canvases, prints, and other personalized gifts.
DO YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE SHOOTING IN VARIOUS LIGHTING SITUATIONS? Yes! I am very comfortable working in all types of lighting conditions. I can use available natural light (my favorite), or I have plenty of lights to create my own lighting in low-light situations such as church ceremonies, sunset weddings, and receptions both indoors and outdoors.
YOU HAVE LIABILITY INSURANCE? You bet! And plenty of it. Many venues will refuse to allow any wedding photographer in the door without liability insurance. Proof of insurance for you or your venue is available upon request.
DO YOU HAVE BACKUP GEAR? Most definitely! I arrive to every event prepared with an extra camera, lenses, batteries, memory cards, lights, and flashes to ensure that photography for your event is covered no matter what.
DO YOU WORK WITH A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER/ASSISTANT? ALL of my wedding photography packages include a second shooter/assistant. For larger events, I also know many great wedding photographers to call upon if needed to ensure that we capture every moment of your day. I have shot weddings for clients that included as many as four photographers!
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY PHOTOS? Photo delivery time varies depending on the workload for the season in which your wedding takes place. I take great care in editing each wedding to make sure you and your guests are looking your best. I personally go through every single photo and delete outtakes/duplicates, make color corrections and enhancements, apply proper cropping, and adjust exposure and contrast. The average delivery time for my clients during my busiest season is 2-4 weeks. I also post highlight galleries and sneak peaks to my social media pages the same week as your wedding!
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE? Many wedding photographers limit the number of photos that you will receive from your wedding. I do not have a specific limit on the number of photos I deliver. So many factors can affect how many photos are needed for storytelling, such as the length of your wedding day, size of your bridal party, number of guests, and elaboration or beautiful simplicity of your decor/detail items. I do my best to provide all the photos necessary to complete your story. Most clients who hire me for an 8 hour day receive an average of 500-800 professionally edited photos.
HOW ARE MY PHOTOS DELIVERED? Your photos will be delivered to you in high resolution via online gallery. You will receive a password for the gallery which you can use to download photos, share with family and friends and order prints.
HOW DO I ORDER PRINTS? You can easily order prints in your online gallery to be delivered directly to your home from a professional printing lab with the click of a button! Your friends and family can do the same! You may also download your photos and make prints yourself, however this in not recommended for prints larger than 4x6 size, as the quality of paper and ink used at printing locations such as Walgreens, Walmart, etc. are not as high quality as those used by professional printing labs.
WILL I RECEIVE EVERY PHOTO YOU TAKE AND DO YOU PROVIDE RAW FILES? Although I will absolutely capture and provide you with every important moment from your wedding day, you will not receive EVERY photo I take. During an average 8 hour wedding my second shooter and I combined will take anywhere from 2000-4000 photos. Why don't you receive them all? Because I only provide my clients with high quality edited photos that represent my work. I do not give my client blurry photos, multiple duplicate photos, photos in which you have your eyes closed and an unflattering facial expression, or any photos in which you or your guests do not look your best. I do however provide you with every great photo that I captured of every special moment of your day, you and your guests, decor, detail items, ceremony and reception from multiple angles. Trust me when I say you get the best of the best! Which is also why I do not provide raw files to my clients. Every photo is chosen and edited with great care to have a beautiful finish. Raw images are unfinished images, and are meant to be professionally edited. Providing raw files would be like a baker providing flour and eggs to a client that hired them to bake a wedding cake!
