FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What equipment do you use?
I photograph with Sony Mirrorless cameras and bring a variety of lenses, loads of batteries and SD cards with me.
For lighting, I use a variety of speedlites and strobes depending on the type of venue.
How many pictures do you take?
Oh the beauty of digital photography!
I shoot digital and there’s no end to how much “film” I have. On average you’ll receive 80-100 images per hour of shooting. I do take more images than that but I do you the favor of taking out the outtakes like blinks, test shots, and delivering the best images. All the images are edited to a warm, soft and airy.
How can we book you? Do you offer payment plans?
To make sure that you’ve snagged me for your wedding date I require a 50% retainer and an electronically signed wedding contract. The remaining 50% balance is due 30 days before your wedding day. I am flexible with breaking up payments along the way and you'll have an online portal to keep track of payments and balance.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
My wedding photography packages are priced per hour with a minimum of 2 hours. The starting rate is $300 per hour. I believe every wedding is unique therefor I will help you create a package that fits your wants and needs.
WHEN WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOS?
For portrait sessions, my turn around time is 2 weeks after your session.
For weddings, you will be receiving your private online gallery within 3-4 weeks after your wedding day. USB, Prints, Albums, Canvases and other special products can vary depending on the type of order/product.
Family portraits at our wedding? How does that work?
Family portraits during a wedding don’t have to be stressful. A few weeks before your wedding, I will email you a Family Portrait Questionnaire where you will write down a lost of everyone that you would like to have a photograph with. This will help me when the time comes to have the family formals. This time typically takes from 15-30 minutes depending on how many people are involved.
What should I/we WEAR FOR MY/OUR PORTRAIT SESSION?
From the location you choose, to the outfit/s you’ll wear, the sessions is ultimately about you! You should select pieces that best describe you and most importantly, pieces that make you feel comfortable. You can opt to have 2 or 3 outfits depending on the session and location and go from casual to more glam. You can also bring key pieces of clothing and layer them up and accessories. A scarf, a jacket, a tie and a hat, go a very long way!
As we get closer to your session, we will chat about what to wear and I can give you ideas of what can work best.
Do you know any hair and makeup artists?
Yes! In fact, I know and have worked with several of them and can vouch for their creativity, professionalism and quality of work. If this is something you’re interested in having prior to your session, we can make it happen.
Do you have liability insurance?
Absolutely and I’ll be happy to provide your venue with a proof of coverage.
