FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE?
In regards to weddings, every wedding day is vastly different and every story behind the day is even more unique. I use my cameras and creativity to tell the story of how your emotional day unfolded. I seek natural, candid images. Through small posing instructions, I will make you feel relaxed while getting your good side.
Regarding Lifestyle photography, my goal is to acquire a vast variety of candid interactions between you and your loved ones. Using insightful lighting and posing techniques, we draw the best out of you and every venue.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?
Regardless of which session you're interested in, I strive to deliver quality over quantity. This means nothing but professional grade imagery. The average wedding yields 700-1100+ high resolution images you will be proud to showoff. An engagement session can be anywhere from 40-80+ high resolution images. Contact me to find out more info in regards to other sessions and the quantity of photos to be expected.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
I love to deliver a sneak peak within a week of the wedding. The sneak peak is a few edited images that stood out to me as "knock your socks off". The remaining images can be expected usually within a few weeks.
WE'RE INTERESTED IN AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION.
Good news! I offer engagement sessions individually and as part of a wedding package. This is a great way for you to get comfortable around both me and my camera. This session helps us learn your most flattering angles. Check out some couples sessions here.
WILL YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS / ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Any excuse I get to travel, I take. I've shot weddings and engagement sessions in reclusive forests, on breezy beaches, amongst the chaos of Downtown streets and lazy back country roads. The beauty in any venue is not hard to find if you know how to see it.
I'M INTERESTED IN GETTING A PHOTOBOOK OR CANVAS MADE.
You're in luck! I've put together dozens of photobooks at this point so I consider myself a pro. I've got a couple of companies that I whole heartedly trust to produce quality photobooks, canvases and prints every time. If this is something that interests you, we can discuss it further during our meet and greet.
WE ARE A LOVELY COUPLE, BUT MY FIANCEÉ IS NOT ONE TO POSE FOR A CAMERA.
I pride myself in being a silent, stealthy, camera ninja, capturing the undisturbed, natural, candid interactions between you and your loved ones. Disturbing the flow of the moment to pose for a photo is simply not what I do. I may give small instructions during the family/bridal party portraits session and during the intimate session (just the happy couple) with the main goal of keeping everyone feeling comfortable and natural. Time and time again, the couple (mostly the fellas) tell me how unexpectedly painless and fun the session was.
DO YOU REQUIRE A SHOT LIST?
I do not require a shot list. I have the important details and moments premeditated and down to a science. You will be asked to fill out a questionnaire and provide a list of family members that you would like to be photographed with. This is simply a tool to ensure we don't forget anyone.
WHO WILL YOU TRUST TO SHOOT BY YOUR SIDE ON OUR BIG DAY?
All of my second shooters have been scouted for the position based on their portfolio, personality and level of professionalism. I currently have 4 reliable, highly creative photographers that I trust in. I choose the right fit based on your vision, wants and needs.
HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
Multiple ways! You will be given a link to a gallery that is all your own. This way you can view, share, print, post from any device anywhere in the world that has an internet connection. No internet? No problem. Feel free to save all images from the gallery to any device or external hard drive. You can also request to receive the images on a U.S.B stick. Photo albums are available upon request.
When it comes down to it, you MUST trust in your photographer. It's a very important job that doesn't get a "redo." I am proud to say that I have never had an unsatisfied customer in my many years as a professional photographer. I am an individual that takes pride in my professionalism, my positive attitude that promotes a fun and easy going day together and my skills as a professional photographer. If you give me that opportunity to photograph your wedding, I am 100% confident that you will not regret your decision. I'd love to hear from you or meet up with you to discuss your wedding arrangements further!
