FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO YOU travel for weddings?
Absolutely! I love going to new and interesting destinations especially to shoot weddings. Travel rates are based on the destination and include roundtrip flights for one or two photographers, three to four nights stay, and local means of travel (rental car, bus/train, guide).
Why would i need a second photographer?
For most weddings having a second photographer/Assistant is the norm. There is a lot going on during a wedding and a lot of it is happening at the same time in different areas. If you feel strongly that you only need one photographer, let us know and we’ll be happy to discuss options for you.
what part of the wedding will you be photographing?
Wedding packages are flexible and include between four and ten consecutive hours of coverage, and it’s completely up to you to decide when you want those hours to begin. Typically this is enough time to cover 2-3 hours before the ceremony and all the way to the end of the reception.
What photos do you usually capture?
I go by a shotlist that I customize for every client. With that said what you want, or more often what you don’t want shot is completely up to you. You can download my shotlist template by clicking the “Download shotlist” button below. I bet there are a few you didn’t consider.
What if i need more than ten hours of coverage?
You are welcome to add additional hours, trade hours out for other items or services, or create a custom package with the exact amount of hours you need.
HOW MANY PICTURES WILL I RECEIVE?
The number of photographs taken depend on many things - number of guests, hours of coverage, types of events, and so forth. My average for an eight hour day with a second shooter is 650 images, but that number may vary depending on the day itself.
Do you include engagement photos in your wedding packages?
Yes! Every wedding package includes an engagement shoot. Its a great opportunity to to get comfortable with each other before the BIG DAY.
What can i do to make sure my fiance and i nail our engagement shoot?

DO WE REALLY NEED AN ALBUM?
You and your fiancé just spent months of your life planning and thousands of dollars for one of the most important days of your life. We know all too well how easy it is for digital files to sit in the cloud or on your hard drive collecting dust, waiting to be printed off. Personally, we think you should walk away from it with something tangible to display your investment. However, we will never pressure you into buying something you don’t want.
All of our albums are made entirely by hand by bookmaking craftsmen in the USA, using top of the line leathers and fabrics, binding agents, papers, and professional photographic printers. The printers are calibrated to our own computers, ensuring a perfect color match and crisp, vivid images. Our albums are guaranteed against defects in workmanship and are built to last through years of flipping through your photo story over and over again.
CAN WE MEET WITH YOU BEFORE WE BOOK?
Yes, I highly recommend it! Contact and lets setup a meeting. I like face-to-face, or we can set up a Skype/FaceTime webcam chat at a time that is convenient for you.
WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR WEDDING?
ASAP! I can’t “hold dates” or “pencil you in”. Most of my commissions contract me within a year of their wedding date.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO BOOK YOU?
You can secure your wedding date with a signed contract and a non-refundable deposit of half the total package cost. The remaining balance will be split into one or two payments and is due 7 days before the ceremony.
Do you help with the wedding planning process?
Absolutely! I’ve shot countless weddings/elopements (and am married myself!) so I know the industry & how a wedding day should look to run smoothly! Let me know what you need help with, if you need recommendations, and if there’s anything I can do to make the process easier for you!
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
I accept checks, Visa/MC (3% fee for cc), wire transfer, cash, Venmo, PayPal.
do we get the copyright of the images?
Copyright is something that gets asked quite often. Copyright simply means that I am the creator of the images, and I “own” the copyright. Selling or obtaining “the copyright” is not possible, but you have the permission and ability to print and share your images as much as you would like! In fact, I encourage it!
