Are you available for our wedding date?
To find out if I have your date available, please message me via my Contact form in the navigation bar.
WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
Now. With the current state of the wedding industry, couples seem to be booking earlier and earlier. One year prior to your wedding is not necessarily safe anymore. I suggest booking as soon as you have your venue locked in.
How much money down will reserve you as our photographer?
$1000 + sales tax, along with a signed contract will lock your wedding date into my calendar.
For packages including an Engagement Photoshoot, the retainer is a bit higher at $1350 + sales tax.
Will our photographs be edited?
Yes. In post-production I dial in exposure, contrast, saturation, sharpness, and a few other things to make the photos look the best they possibly can. More extensive skin retouching (air-brushing, removing background objects, head swapping , etc) is available at an affordable rate.
How long will it take you to edit our photographs?
It will take me approximately 30 days to deliver your wedding photos.
DO YOU PROVIDE PRINTING SERVICES?
Yes, I work with a world-renowned professional printing studio to offer a massive collection of high quality prints products. They’re affordably priced, and available to you in your own Online Wedding Gallery.
WILL WE RECEIVE THE RIGHTS TO PRINT OUR IMAGES OURSELVES?
Yes. You can take your photos wherever you’d like to have them printed, or you can order professional prints directly through your Online Wedding Gallery.
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I use professional Fuji brand cameras and lenses.
WILL YOU BRING A BACKUP CAMERA TO OUR WEDDING?
Yes! I shoot with two practically identical cameras. If a camera malfunctions, I have another to use as a backup.
How do you make sure our photos are safe?
Your photos are instantly recorded to two memory cards. When I get home from your wedding, I back them up a bunch of times. I've never lost a wedding photo, and take the necessary precautions to keep your files safe.
ARE YOU WILLING TO TRAVEL?
Of course! There are a few expenses such as airfare, gas, and hotel that go along with a destination wedding. Travel is included within a 60 mile radius of where I live (Warren).
WHEN SHOULD WE SHOOT OUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS?
This depends on what you’ll be using the photos for. I can work on long or short notice. The wedding industry seems to suggest sending out save-the-dates 9 months prior to your wedding.
I try not to schedule Engagement Photoshoots between Thanksgiving and the beginning of April.
HOW LONG DO ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS TYPICALLY LAST?
About one hour.
CAN WE HAVE AN OUTFIT CHANGE?
Can we bring our dog?
If you don't, I'll be mad.
How long will it take to edit our photographs?
Turnaround time for engagements is just 1 week.
