Do you have a Covid-19 policy?
A.Yes. 2020 has been an interesting year. With 99% of my couples postponing to 2021, I was able to work with them to find new dates that I am available for. We transferred their deposit towards their new contract & date. In a few rare cases where I was not available for their new date, I matched them up with a photographer who has a similar style (and that they approved), so they were covered for their new date.
What is your style of photography?
A.I am constantly learning from new couples, discovering what works for them, and which lighting & scenes make pleasing photos. I prefer to offer posing suggestions to my couples and photograph what I like from those moments. Ideally, my couples are comfortable, happy, and easy to laugh.
Hybrid Coverage (Photo + Video)
A.I love being able to offer my couples photography and highlight-film coverage of their wedding day. I choose specific moments to capture short video clips that are edited into a highlight film of the day. For moments that only happen once, I have two cameras with me both able to capture photo & video. The benefits of hiring me for hybrid coverage are: Less photographers onsite distracting from the important moments. Less communication between several vendors. Saves you money than hiring two separate teams to capture your day. You have a consistent look/feel to the images and memories of your day.
How do we pay and book with you?
A.You can reach out through my contact form to check for availability, pricing and to schedule a chat to make sure we are a good fit. I always prefer to meet up in person or schedule a phone call. After that, I will send you a contract and invoice. The deposit is 50% of your total package, with the remainder due a few weeks before your wedding.
How many photos can we expect in our gallery?
A.I typically deliver between 500-700 print-ready images to an online gallery... while we are on the subject, I always urge my couples to print their photos, whether it be through the online gallery, or on your own. Photos are meant to be printed, held, and displayed proudly in your home. You can order prints directly from your online gallery. I also offer discount codes seasonally, just ask :)
Do you take formal group & family photos
A.Yes, absolutely. I have a checklist template that I like to send out to my couples well in advance of their wedding date. Filling out this list helps us stay organized on the day, as well as ensures we don't miss that photo with your great aunt.
Do you have liability insurance?
A.Yes I do. Let me know if your venue needs to see proof, and I can email it over : )
Can I show you my Pinterest board of images that I love?
A.Of course you can, I love looking at Pinterest for inspiration too. While I enjoy the photos of other photographers, my couples trust me to create can capture images that are as unique as they are. I like to use inspiration boards as a starting point and work towards images that are as unique as you.
Is it cool if my aunt takes photos during my wedding?
A.Yes, as long as she does her best to stay out of the way of my frame. I do offer discounts for unplugged ceremonies.
Can I bring my dog, and will you take her photo?
A.Yes! Please bring your furry family members (venue permitting) and we will definitely include them in your images from the day.
Who will be there on my wedding day?
A.Every wedding I book, I am there for. When you hire me, you hire myself (and maybe a second) to be with you on your wedding day to capture the important moments.
Please don't hesitate to reach out with more questions. I'm happy to talk about your day, and how I would capture it.
