Who owns the pictures?
All picture rights are given to the couple for personal use only.
How many photographers are included?
Two photographers are included in every Collection. My second shooter and I work together yet independently to give you full coverage, variety, and different points of view. When appropriate we work at two different locations such as when covering bridal and groom preparatory pictures at two different venues. The 2nd photographer is a matriculated photographer who has either interned with me or worked with me as an assistant before taking on the role of 2nd photographer.
What is your style?
I am a lifestyle wedding photographer, yet my photography falls under the heading of both candid and photojournalism. We shoot real-life situations in an interpretive and artistic way. I believe that you should do what you do on your day and have a good time! It is important for us to be there but also to, “not be there”.
Do you shoot in RAW?
Yes, but more importantly I shoot with full frame cameras and use fast prime lenses.
Our reception will be at night (or our venue is dimly lit), how do you handle low light?
Most all of how we capture your imagery is done by the manipulation of available light. Still, we add light when appropriate for specific shots at any time of the day, but more so once the sun has set. It all depends on the situation and the look we are going for.
On the wedding day, how much time should we set aside for pictures?
Because each wedding is different, I am happy to make suggestions for what works best on your day. For example, some weddings have various locations to consider, and others may include a first look (also called "the reveal") that can minimize picture taking after the ceremony. Whatever the case, I believe in working with your timeline and not going over the time allotted for pictures. While I work efficiently, I do make sure that everyone is looking their best while directing your pictures as needed. In general, it takes between 15 - 25 minutes for the family and wedding party pictures, and 15 - 25 minutes for the two of you. However, some couples do spend more time taking pictures at different time of times of the day such pictures during a first look and later after the ceremony at sunset.
How many pictures will I receive?
On average we deliver between 75 - 100 pictures per hour. All my galleries seen here show only highlights of weddings and engagement sessions, not the full session nor the entire wedding gallery.
Will there be logos or watermarks on my pictures?
The pictures you receive on your USB will be free from logos or watermarks.
Can I get albums now or later?
I do offer albums. However, there is no obligation to get an album from me as some couples enjoy a DIY approach to albums. Photography-only Collections are available but if you decide on albums at a later time after your wedding, we can certainly get you what you are looking for.
How far in advance would I need to book with you?
Throughout the wedding season, there are days that become the most sought after wedding dates. Those dates book up at least one year in advance. Additionally, consistently popular wedding dates fall within the Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, and also the month of October.
