Frequently Asked Questions
Photo Delivery | Do we get All digital files? :
Yes. We deliver your photos on a USB drive. You are able to post them on social media, share and print them for your own personal use. You will also have a private online gallery of your wedding photos. Where you can share with your family and you also have the option of ordering prints directly from the gallery.
SECOND SHOOTER | Do you have a second shooter?
Yes. I have a second shooter available.
How much does it cost for you to travel to my wedding? I have been traveling around the US and throughout the world for the last 4 years to shoot weddings. Setting up the airplane travel, hotel, rental car etc can be time consuming, expensive and difficult. So I've come up with a way that makes things easy for clients to understand and doesn't cost them the time to set everything up.
RESERVE OUR DATE
How do I reserve you for our wedding day? I make this quite easy. The two things needed to reserve your date are the signed wedding agreement and a $1000 retainer. Both can be done online. Once we have talked, emailed or video chat and made sure I have the date available and would be a good fit I'll send you a link to sign the agreement and process the payment using any major credit/debit card. Once those two things are done - I will put it on my calendar and that date will be yours.
How many photos will I get? 800-1500 is what I have found is a good number to tell the entire story of a wedding day and around what you should expect.
Color or Black & White? I deliver all photos in BOTH. You will get all the photos in my unique and timeless color toning as well as in my artistic black and white.
Are they high resolution? Absolutely. The photos will be optimized so not only are the high resolution and will print amazing, but they are also stripped of all the unnecessary information that makes file sizes large and bloated. This way you can download the images quicker, attach them to emails, share on Facebook and upload to your favorite cloud server without it taking weeks. Over the years I have dialed in the perfect optimized file size that gives you all the benefits of printing and working with the images online as possible.
How long before I see them? 30 days. I try to get them to you quicker but give myself thirty days to make sure I can edit them up nicely. I will do my best to post a sneak peek as well.
Do I have to order prints through you? Nope. You can download and order your prints wherever you would like. If you like things that are convenient and easy you'll love the print order system built directly into the gallery though. Prices are extremely affordable and the prints are printed at an amazing production facility that works solely with professional photographers and delivers direct to your home in just a few days. So if you want to do it yourself you can, but if you like it easy I've made that possible for you as well.
Do we need to feed you? It's not required but sure appreciated. I am even ok if you want to order me a pizza. :) If it is agreed that I will have a second shooter at the wedding covering dinner service it is appreciated that they are fed as well.
Do you need a space at a table? Nope. Actually I'd prefer not to sit with the guests. Not because I don't want to meet them but because I am usually working at the same time as I am eating. I typically find a hidden corner somewhere (or behind the DJ) and as I am eating I will be downloading photos, cleaning gear, charging batteries etc. Also there will be times when I need to get up quickly to take photos of an event that is happening. So it is always much better for me to not have to excuse myself constantly from a table of your friends and family.
