FAQ

Do you come to the rehearsal?

I would be happy to come to your rehearsal and that can be added onto your package by simply adding hourly coverage.

How much editing do you do to my images?

All my images get color corrections and some light touch ups if needed. My goal is always to make the image look as close as possible to how the scene looked to our eyes. If more drastic retouching is needed, it is available for an additional fee.

How would you describe your style of photography?

I am a natural light, journalistic style photographer who focuses on capturing authentic moments and connections. 

Can I make you a Pinterest board?

If you would like to make a Pinterest board, go for it!  I recommend you limit it to 10 images of some of your favorite poses or photos that you have seen me take previously.  Try not to pin photos based on their situations as we cannot always control where the sun will be and that type of thing. I cannot guarantee that all of those images will be captured but I will do my best!

What kind of gear do you shoot with?

I shoot with Sony brand camera gear. I also have a 1966 Canon FT QL film that I love pulling out of the closet to shoot real authentic photos with if desired!

Can you hold my wedding date?

Your wedding date can be reserved with a signed contract and 50% retainer of your package price.  Unfortunately a date cannot be held without those two things.

What is required to book you for my wedding?

A 50% of your package price retainer and a signed contract will reserve me for your wedding date. For portraits a signed contract is required.

What are my options for payment?

At the moment: cash, cashier’s check, debit, credit or personal check.

What is your payment schedule?

Half of your package price is due upon signing of the contract to reserve your date and the other half is due one month prior to your event.  Contact me for a custom payment schedule if needed.

Can we pay you part of the wedding payment after the wedding?

Unfortunately this is not an option at this time.  All payment must be made before shooting begins on the wedding day.

If I have to cancel my wedding or change date, will I get my money back?

Your 50% retainer is non-refundable, but it is transferable to a new date up through the following calendar year.

When should we book you for our wedding?

As soon as possible!  I book weddings roughly up to a year in advance.  It is unpredictable when I might have a date get booked!

If we are running behind schedule, will you stay longer than we booked you?

I do my best to help you plan your wedding day timeline to accommodate for any time of unplanned events so that we do not run so far behind schedule that you need me to stay longer.  But if something happens and you need me to stay, additional coverage can be added on by the half hour at the same rate as when you booked me.

Do we have to feed you at the wedding reception?

Yes please!  If coverage is over 5 hours, me and my staff are required to have a meal break. We are fine with vendor meals or whatever you are serving your guests.  I recommend that we be served at the same time as the bride and groom so that when they are done eating, we are done as well and can start photographing the next event. If a meal is not provided for us then we require an hour to leave the venue to go get food.

Can our friends and family take photos at the wedding?

Friends and family are always welcome to take photos at your wedding!  In my contract however it does state that I will be the only professional photographer taking images and using them in a professional way.  I do recommend having an unplugged ceremony so that we can ensure all the important images are captured without distraction.

Can we grab coffee and chat?

I would love to grab a coffee! If we are discussing shooting your wedding, we can definitely sit down at your favorite cafe to chit chat about scheduling and any questions or concerns you have before the big day. Unfortunately I cannot accommodate everyone, so portraits we will have to keep in contact through email or phone.

For any questions not answered please feel free to contact me!
