FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How would you view yourself as a photographer?

I view myself as a storyteller, so my main goal of the day is to tell your wedding story (while making you look great!)  I use natural light and natural posing  giving you timeless images you can look back at years from now.

How long have you been photographing weddings?

Since 2010

What kind of equipment do you use?

I use Canon Professional equipment.  Currently I am using a Canon 5d Mark II and Canon professional lenses.  I also bring an assortment of flashes, batteries and other lighting equipment so I can be prepared for any situation.

Do you have a back up camera?

I have a backup system with me at all times.

Do you work with another photographer?

All of my packages have the option to add a 2nd photographer

Do you recommend working from a shoot list?

Preparing a list of family portraits you would like to be captured throughout the day is strongly encouraged, as it can help save time and ensures nobody is missed.  However because every day is unique and weddings are fluid events, an extensive shot list can be difficult to navigate, and are thus discouraged. The last thing you want is for your photographer to be overly focused on checking things off and potentially missing some of the magical moments that unfold.

Are you LGBT friendly?

Absolutely

How far in advance should I book you?

I typically book 9-15 months in advance of a wedding for Saturdays between April and October.

Do you travel for weddings and what is your travel fee?

I am happy and honored to photograph your wedding, wherever the location.  Depending on the location I sometimes require overnight lodging.  Contact me directly to get a customized quote for your event.

Are you insured?

Definitely!

Do I get all of the photos from the wedding?

Yes, I pride myself on offering all of the photos taken on your wedding date via instant download upon completion of the editing process (which is very fast, sometimes as fast as seven days!)

Do I have to print my photos with you?

No, I have the option available to print with my proofing site at a professional lab but if you want to print your photos on your own I recommend Mpix
