What is your pricing?
My price list is not available online. Prices begin at $3750 and clients usually spend between $4150 – $7000, packages are customized to meet each couple’s individual needs. Please email me to find out more information. Most packages come with an engagement session, online gallery hosted for 10 years, high resolution files, an album, lots of phone calls, site visits and planning to make sure that your wedding photos are perfect!
Do you work with a second photographer?
I do! I shoot every wedding with a second photographer. It’s impossible for me to be two places at once so I always have someone else that can spend time with the groom or be in a hard to reach location at the church. I carefully orchestrate our positions throughout the day to make sure we don’t miss anything.
Can I give you a shot list?
Sure! I don’t necessarily need a shot list like the one you find on The Knot, any professional knows to get all those pictures. What I do need are a list of family photos and other important images you want to get (college friends, mom’s book club, etc.). We will discuss in great detail what is most important to you on your wedding day and I will make sure to take note and capture your wedding with those thoughts in mind.
What’s your editing process?
After selecting the final images, between 700-1000, I personally edit each and every image delivered to my clients. Each photograph gets the attention it deserves to deliver the highest quality images possible.
Color or B&W?
I shoot everything in color in the RAW file format. During post production I decide which images stay in color and the small percentage that get made into b&w. Some images are delivered in both color and b&w. If you want to see an image in color that was initially available only in b&w (especially once we get to the album design), just ask!
How long before we see our pictures?
Over the last two years I have made it a priority to deliver images to my clients in two weeks or less! The faster your get your photos, the more exciting it is for you and your guests. While quick delivery is wonderful, I do not sacrifice image quality for speed. If I need a little more time because your wedding is during the busiest time of year, I may take a bit longer. Images will never be delivered more than one month from your wedding day.
Do we get high resolution files with printing rights?
Yes, all of my packages come with the high resolution files with printing rights.
How do we view, share and download our images?
You will be sent a link to all of your images in a private online gallery with the ability to download the entire wedding or individual images. The gallery is online for 10 years and can be easily shared with friends and family. You and your guests can also purchase prints off the site if you like.
How far in advance should I book you?
I book weddings as far out as two years in advance so the sooner the better.
Can you hold my wedding date?
The only way to hold a date is with a signed contract and a paid retainer.
How much is your retainer fee?
$1500 is due at the signing of the contract, the balance is due the week of the wedding. The deposit can be paid by credit card, check or Chase Quickpay. The balance must be paid by check or Chase Quickpay.
Do you have insurance?
Yep! State Farm business insurance, and I can send it to you or your venue if you need me to.
How long have you been doing this?
I’ve been photographing weddings since 2002 and have shot almost 300 weddings.
What kind of gear do you you use?
I’ve shot Canon since I was a little kid, the only thing that’s changed is that now it’s a high-end digital camera that cost more than my first car (and I have three of them!) I shoot with a variety of lenses, but being that I’m kind of an old school photojournalist, I love the 70-200 f/2.8, 50 f/1.4 and 16-35 f/2.8. I also have a fisheye, a tilt shift 24 and a macro along with a bunch of wireless strobes and gels and on and on and on. Like any pro photographer, I love gear and I’m always upgrading and acquiring new
toys equipment to help me do my job better.
