WE'RE NOT LOCAL - DO YOU TRAVEL?
For you? Absolutely! Occasionally with bells on. Please get in touch - I'm always happy to consult over Skype or FaceTime if we are unable to meet in person. Ditto for couples planning from afar.
DO YOU OFFER ELOPEMENT PACKAGES?
Yes, yes, yes and yes. Whether you are planning an escape to Endor, a quick thing with paperwork and donuts or you've got a rendezvous on a midnight beach, I am so there! Am also partial to "oh hey, it's Tuesday, let's get hitched." Will also show up for all manner of scenarios heretofore unmentioned. Drop me a line with your plans!
WHAT ABOUT PRODUCTS?
I strongly advocate for tangible print pieces because I fanatically/enthusiastically believe that your memories belong in your every day space.
Digital files are fine (and available) but have an uncanny knack for being forgotten, lost or inadvertently deleted.
YOU HAD ME AT OH HAI, HOW DO WE MOVE FORWARD?
I'm basically a heart eyes emoji right now. Or a dancing girls emoji. Okay, probably more like the dancing girls.
Spirit emojis aside, please send me an e-mail and expect a quick Q&A in return. An in person consult will be scheduled to make sure we're all on the same page. I will then send you an electronic contract that must be signed and submitted along with a non-refundable 50% retainer to hold your date. The remainder of your payment will be due two weeks prior to your wedding date.
Please note that your date will not be held until a contract is signed and your retainer submitted.
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
I know. I know! You want to see your photos rightnow. ME TOO! Because I edit each photo personally, my typical wedding turnaround time ranges from 6-8 weeks. During the peak summer season, this can extend from 7-9 weeks. Swimmer, do not panic - I usually post a sneak peek or two online to tide you over. The wait will be worth it!
Lifestyle session turnaround time is two weeks.
WILL WE RECEIVE EVERY PHOTO YOU TAKE?
Culling out closed eyes, inadvertent sloth impressions, repetitive sequences and mechanical flukes is also part of my job. I will sort through your collection and deliver every true and beautiful image needed to tell your story in a mix of color and black and white. And yes, some images just look better in black and white. Most wedding collections include between 200-500 edited images depending on the duration of the event.
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT SHOT LISTS?
Now I love a good to-do list as much as the next lover of crossing things out but shot lists are not my cup of tea. After all, we're telling a story here - not stocking an office supply closet.
As your photographer, I will capture your wedding day in an organic narrative style that incorporates creative portraiture. All the good stuff will be there! Pre-event consultations are very important to me. Your job is to enjoy the day, my job is to mind the details that make it amazing!
DO YOU USE A SECOND SHOOTER?
Nope. I have a very specific vision in mind as I work and I don't trust that translation to anyone else. Working alone does not impact my ability to capture your day - if anything, flying solo sharpens my attention to detail. Chalk it up to my commercial photography-you'd-better-be-prepared, Macgyver-find-your-zen-in-the-crazy training. Well, at least that's what I do!
