A: My pricing philosophy is to personally sit down with you to discuss your wedding day wish list. This allows me to construct a custom pricing package that will meet your individual expectations for your memorable day. This is YOUR dream day, and you deserve the photographs that YOU want to remember it by. My wedding packages start at approximately 2250 dollars and increase based on the options you choose. I strongly encourage that we schedule a convenient time for us to meet in person to develop a customized package that works best for your special day.
2. Do you shoot the weddings or does someone else?
A: I will always be the primary photographer at your wedding. I do not book more than one event in a day, If needed I will hire extra photographers to provide more coverage.
3. Will a contract of the services be provided? If so, can I get a copy?
A: Yes, I have a detailed contract that protects both you as the client and me as the Photographer. I will go thru each item with you and answer any questions you may have.
4. Do you have insurance?
A: Yes, and plenty of it. Many venues will refuse to allow me (or any wedding photographer) in the door without liability insurance. And most of them aren’t going to believe I’m your cousin/aunt/sister-with-a-camera either.
5. What happens if the photographer is ill?
A: In the unlikely event that I get ill, I have list of multiple photographers that I can pull from. I will, however, do everything possible to be the photographer that shoots your wedding.
6. What kind of equipment do you use? Do you have backups?
A: I shoot professional level Canon equipment and I always have backup equipment, camera bodies, lenses, flashes, and memory card. I have actually had to use backups when I dropped a camera at a wedding.
7. Should my event last longer than scheduled, will you stay? Is there an extra charge?
A: Yes, I will never leave an event early. However, If the event last more than 30 minutes longer than schedule an agreed upon fee will be charged. I do my best to notify you prior to this occurring.
8. What attire will the photographer and their assistants wear?
A: Typical wedding photography attire is black suit pants with a black polo or dress shirt. We dress completely in black because we want to go unnoticed by the clients and guests.
9. How long after the event will the proofs, album, etc be ready?
A: I do my best to have the Proofs and the online gallery ready within a 10 to 14 days unless otherwise noted. Prints typically take about a week from the time of ordering them. Albums take the longest and because of the various proofs and revisions may take up to three months form the wedding date to be delivered.
10. Will you follow a shot list or do you prefer to have free reign to capture the festivities how you see fit?
A: Yes and Yes. I do provide a "Wish List" of photos that you want of your special day. I will also capture many other moments that you may not think about or think about ahead of time. Years of experience shooting weddings and events has taught me to always be ready for an unexpected moment.
11. What kind of payment options or plans do you have, when is final payment do?
A: We accept most forms of payment and payment plans are available upon request. We do require a non-refundable deposit to reserve the date at the time the contract is signed, Final Payment is due 14 days prior to the wedding.
12. How long will you keep a copy our wedding photos?
A: One of the many advantages of digital photography is the ease of storage. I will typically keep files stored online for at least 2 years, and digital copies at least 5 years.
