HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My style is natural with an editorial and fine art feel. I strive to create photos that look effortless, honest and real. I love the look of film and try to emulate its timeless appeal. I want to create timeless images that you can look back on it 30 years from now and remember the day like it was yesterday.
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO THE DAY?
I always consult with my couples months prior to your wedding to discuss your wedding day schedule. I feel the best way to get great results is to design a well-paced day that integrates the proper time for portrait sessions, getting ready, transportation time, etc. Once that basic structure is in place, the rest of the day is filled with spontaneous, candid documenting. I will rarely ask you to look at the camera and smile and never ask you to put your tie on again. I get everything as it happens naturally.
WE LOVE YOUR CANDID STYLE, BUT HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT PORTRAITS?
I love portraits and I feel that portraits are a very important part of the day. I always strive to capture a large number of beautiful portraits of the bride and groom as well as family and wedding party (if you have one) without taking you away from your event for too long. The average length of a portrait session is 20-30 minutes depending on the number of people involved. I want to get great shots but am always aware that you’re there to have fun, celebrate and enjoy your friends and family, not hang out with me!
I also try to create portraits that feel natural and unassuming. I ask you to interact with each other in order to get real emotional reactions as opposed to forced smiles. As needed I will step in and provide direction.
HOW MANY HOURS DO YOU SHOOT?
I’ve found that the average event only requires 8-10 hours of photography to be able to capture absolutely everything. If you think you may need me for longer than that I charge $250 per additional hour added prior to your event and $350 added on the day of your event.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU RUN OUT OF BATTERIES OR CARD SPACE ?
The simple answer is, I don’t! I always carry plenty of these items to every event so I am prepared for anything.
Here are answers to some commonly asked questions…
why weddings? because I'm a big fan of magic moments.
HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE GET, AND IN WHAT FORMAT?
I say a minimum of 300 images but in many cases I deliver more than that for a full day event. I provide you with your fully edited images in high and low resolution within 60 days after your event. I always try to get your images to you as soon as possible after your wedding and I normally only take the maximum amount of time if I am swamped during wedding season. I also post your images to an online gallery for at least 9 months for you and your family to order prints.
CAN WE GET AN ALBUM?
Yes, I think albums are the ideal way to keep and enjoy your photos. I offer a fine art, archival lay-flat option as well as a hardcover coffee table book. Because pricing varies depending on the method of printing, we do not include the cost of printing in our wedding package.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO BOOK YOU?
Yay! This is my favorite question. All I need is a signed contract and a 50% deposit to reserve the day. After that, I will send you my Wedding Questionnaire to get all the pertinent details about your day to begin to build the ideal schedule for photography. If I were to distill down the two things needed for the day it would be need light and time. My only goal on your special day is to capture the most amazing images possible all while you making you feel relaxed and awesome. And that’s that!
