How do you describe your style?
My photography is a mix of bold, intimate and candid. I love sitting back and capturing candid moments that are happening right in front of my camera. At the same time, I love using creativity to create bold and intimate portraits and moments.
Do you work with a second photographer?
I sure do. I use a handful of professional wedding photographers who meet my strict guidelines. Being a wedding photographer is not an easy job by any stretch of the imagination. There are so many events that are involved in the wedding day itself. There are so many moments that happen and are over in the blink of an eye. I only trust true wedding photographers to tackle the task of being your second shooter. I can not and will not trust an amateur to tackle the job of a professional.
Do you edit all your photographs?
You bet! I have an editor who edits all of the images that are delivered to you. I personally double check every edited image for color and consistency. No image is delivered to you that does not meet my standards.
How long will it take to receive my wedding images?
Great question, you will receive your images in 6 to 8 weeks.
How many images will I receive?
You will receive by contract standards 400 to 500 images. But in many cases, it can be more. It really depends on the events of your wedding, for example, if the dance floor is going crazy all night or if there are just so many unbelievable moments happening. Trust me, my goal is to capture as many awesome moments as I can.
Will you photograph everyone at my wedding?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to photograph every guest at your wedding and this is something I can't guarantee. It is impossible to remember every person I photographed throughout the day. I also do not want to spend your whole wedding trying to photograph every single person. If I am 100% focused on trying to photograph all of your guests, then I might miss special moments that are happening throughout your wedding day.
Will you capture every moment?
I will do my best to capture every moment that I am fully aware of. I rely on my clients to have 100% open communication with me. If they have a special moment that is not part of the normal wedding pictures then I need to be made aware. My goal is to capture all the important moments, but open communication is always key.
Will I receive all of the unedited (RAW) files?
The RAW files are not available for viewing or for purchase. This is very much like asking the caterer to give you the leftover ingredients used to make your dinner. The selected edited images are a reflection of my high standards. I do not archive the RAW files or store them. Once the final images are delivered to you, the RAW files are deleted. Please rest assure that any unedited images are truly outtakes.
Do you watermark the images?
No images are watermarked. In fact, every image is also full resolution.
Do your albums have a warranty?
My standard albums do not come with a warranty. My premium albums come with a full lifetime warranty.
Can I give you images from Pinterest that I want to be recreated?
Though I understand Pinterest is exciting and fun, I do not recreate Pinterest images. I firmly believe you should hire me for my style and creativity. I do not want you to hire me to just recreate images created by some other photographer.
