How many hours do we need?
Every wedding day is unique and may require more or less time photographing getting ready, details, portraits, and ceremony and event coverage. I currently offer 6, 9, and 12 hour packages. In my experience, 6 hours is enough time to cover most of an evening event or a daytime ceremony. The 9 and 12 hour packages offer more in depth story telling that include all of the elements of the day.
Do you photograph weddings with a second photographer?
I always offer the option of having a second photographer, however, I photograph a vast majority of my weddings and elopements solo. Sometimes it makes sense with larger weddings or when extra coverage is wanted to have a second photographer, but I feel very comfortable both stepping in front of groups to direct or in situations where I can blend into a crowd in order to grab the best candid photos.
Can we meet before wedding day?
Absolutely! One of the most important aspects of photography is connection. We will talk via phone/Skype, and meet for a drink to visit and discuss wedding details, pricing and other pertinent information.
How do we book?
To reserve your wedding day, please send a signed contract and a deposit for half of the total package amount. If travel is included, expenses are required at the time of booking.
What is your payment schedule?
Deposit and travel expenses are due at the time of booking and the final payment is due one week before the day of the wedding.
Do we make custom packages?
My packages are base rates with the ability to add on additional time, photographers, videographer, and prints.
What is your turnaround time?
Wedding packages are delivered within 6-8 weeks, depending on business.
What resolution are they delivered in?
I photograph all of my images in RAW format to maintain the complete data from the camera's sensor, which allows for higher quality post-processing. What you'll get is the maximum resolution JPEG ready for both print and sharing. Custom dimensions and file sizes. are available upon request.
Who owns the copyright?
While I retain the copyright to the photos from your event, my contract allows for personal print and media permission.
How will we receive the photographs?
I use an online delivery system that allows you to download files from the event as well as an online gallery you will be able to share with friends and family. You will receive your photographs fully retouched and ready for print.
