We’re excited to book you! What do we do next?
Yay! I’d love to photograph your wedding! The best thing to do after reading this wedding photography FAQ is to head over to my contact page and say hello. We’ll schedule a meetup and then I’ll send over the contract and schedule your invoices. Both the contract and the invoices are online for everyone’s convenience. I’d also love for you to read more about me, and view my portfolio.
What’s in your bag?
I and anyone who works with me carry professional equipment that helps me capture the beautiful and natural moments that make up your wedding day. I have two canon 6d’s various professional lenses. I also carry 2-3 flashes, a staggering amount of memory cards, extra batteries and light stands.
What’s your style?
I like to describe my style as documentary or photojournalistic with an emphasis on emotional connection. In practice, I take more of a fly on the wall approach, but when it’s time to direct, I’m present and on schedule to make sure that we get the images we need in the short time allotted to us before the reception. My main goal is to produce timeless images that capture the emotions of the day so that in 20 years, you can connect emotionally to yourself and see how much you’ve changed, but how much you’ve remained beautifully the same.
Do you release raw files?
I love providing my couples with ready to use images that you can print and share minutes after receiving your USB. Releasing Raw files would be contrary to my goal to provide you with an experience that you can remember for a long time to come.
How long does image processing take?
Image processing takes 4-8 weeks depending on my photography schedule and the time of year. When I start editing your images I send an email with an approximate finish date and an approximate delivery date.
How many images will I get?
For an 8 hour wedding, I usually deliver between 800-1000 images.
How many wedding do you book a year?
I book up to 20 weddings a year, and I book about 6-12 months in advance.
Can my parents sign the contract and pay you directly?
While this is certainly an option and one that’s worked quite well in the past, it’s best that you sign the contract and that payment comes from you. We’ll be communicating a lot, and to keep communication flowing with the least amount of confusion, I limit communication to people who sign the contract. It’s important to me that I am able to communicate with you directly in the months and weeks leading up to your wedding, and for that reason, I encourage you and your partner to be the ones to sign the contract and send payment.
Finally, and this is important- Star Wars or Star Trek?
Both! But if I had to choose, Star Wars. I like the intellectual depths of Star Wars just a tiny bit more than Star Trek. Also, there was Deep Space Nine, which was the worst. Like tied down there with Jar Jar Binks, whose name I regret even typing onto my website.
