Frequently Asked Questions
Do you travel for weddings?
It's my favorite! I love to explore with couples. There is nothing better than when I get to share the excitement of finding new places and backdrops for your images. I keep the travel costs to a minimum and am not opposed to using my own airline miles or crashing at a friends place in order to make it work!
Do you take traditional “smile at the camera” photos?
Absolutely! There is definatly a place for those images. However, my primary focus is always on creating images that are full of emotion and intimate moments.
What is the typical size of your weddings?
My sweet spot is between 2 to 100 people. Smaller weddings naturally tend to be more intimate and full of those closest to you. However, if you are committed to having the same experience with more people, I am totally up for it!
How are photos delivered?
I deliver photos in an online gallery and a USB. Each is edited and full res. I also offer heirloom quality albums that present your story more beautifully than a screen ever could.
Do you need a shot list?
Family formal combination lists can be very helpful. Otherwise, I prefer to capture your story as it happens. I find shot lists take away from the authenticity of your photos. However, if you have ideas for something that is important to you, I’d love to listen. Collaboration is something I always welcome!
Do you photograph details?
If details are important to you, they are important to me. Though, I don’t tend to take tons of images of things just because they are there. I really prefer to capture your special details as you interact with them (Holding the bouquet, putting on your shoes or dress, pouring that special bottle of scotch).
How many images are delivered?
Each wedding is unique, but in general, engagement sessions are typically 100-250 images and weddings are 500-1000. I always air on quality over quantity and telling your story the best way I can.
What’s your pricing like?
I want to listen to your ideas and create something custom for you. That being said, I do have certain parameters I need to stick to. I only take 20-25 weddings per year in order to have time to build relationships with each couple. Please send me a message and I’ll be happy to discuss options!
How do we reserve you for our big day?
It’s actually really simple! I simply require a 30% retainer and contract signature. After that we can get to the fun stuff.
