FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?
My "Style" is more about the way I shoot than the way that I edit your photos, (which varies depending on a lot of factors) My actual style is very loose and photojournalistic. For you engagement session or couples shoot we can go anywhere that suits your personality and I will set up in a great location and often tell you to just chat and tell jokes and make out. This will get you relaxed enough for me to capture your personalities. For your wedding day, other than formals and portraits, I pretty much sit back and document your day. I like to be unobtrusive and as invisible as possible most of the time so that I am capturing all of the beautiful realness of your day.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO BOOK YOU?
To book me, I just need to either meet with you (or talk on the phone if you're not local) and after we've seen if were a good fit, I will need a signed contract and as your retainer half of whatever wedding collection that you choose. I am amenable to discussing different payment options if you need.
WHAT DO WE WEAR TO OUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?
Whatever you do, don't get TOO matchy matchy. Dress comfortably in something that you feel AWESOME in. Layers are always a great idea and an easy way to get different looks, fast. If you really don't know, this is the only time I will ever tell you to look on Pinterest for ideas. . .(seriously, the ONLY time you're allowed to bring Pinterest up!!) :D
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
If you want to guarantee me for your date, I generally book up to a year in advance. That being said, I've happened to be available for last minute weddings as well, so it never hurts to ask, even if you're getting married in a couple of months!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET OUR PHOTOS BACK?
Turnaround on engagement sessions is typically around 3 weeks. For weddings, it's 8-10 weeks. Of course, I do try to move as quickly as possible. These amounts are general and are subject to change based on time of year and other variables.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
HECK YES!! I will travel anywhere you want me to!! So far I've done destination weddings in Jamaica, Cancun, Dominican Republic as well as surrounding states. I LOVE to shoot in the mountains and I'm currently offering specials for the following locations:
Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Northern California, New York and pretty much anywhere in Europe
DO WE GET ALL OF THE IMAGES YOU TAKE?
All of the images you receive from me will be edited (color corrected, etc.). 20-30% of your collection will be re-touched and/or artistically enhanced (skin touch-ups, additional color edits, etc.).
Weddings typically yield 600-800 images; Full Portrait sessions yield 75+ images.
