Wedding FAQ



How would you describe your style?

I have so many inspirations that come from so many different places and try to implement them in my images.  I love the raw emotions of photojournalism and the seductive, mysterious look of “fashion photography”.  I believe in romantic natural lighting, incredible backgrounds and choosing location very carefully.  As far as my photojournalistic side- I try not to interrupt a moment.  I try not to pose situations that are already so magical on their own.  I observe most of the time with very limited intrusion only when it is desired to achieve a particular artistic vision.

We love your style but would love to have some traditional portraiture.  Is this something you do?

I do traditional portraiture at most of our wedding.  Even the most modern brides still want the heirloom that family portraiture creates.  We will spend only 30-45 minutes on any posed photograph for family and group shoots

Do you shoot with file or digital?

I shoot 100 percent digital.  The creative latitude, that digital gives me is beyond compare.  When we shoot, we not only shoot for the moment, but have a clear vision of what the finished image will look like.  By shooting digitally, the possibilities are limitless!  And yes, the quality of digital is as good as file – usually better.

What is your turnaround time for delivering images?

My normal turn around time is 4-6 weeks after your wedding date.  All the wedding images are upload to an online gallery ready for you to share with your family and friends.  Normal portrait sessions such as engagements & family portraits take about 2 weeks to process the images.

What is required to book my wedding date?

In order book your wedding date, I require a 50% retainer to reserve your date.  This locks and guarantees your date.  The remaining balance is due 14 business days prior to the wedding date.  Dates are limited and on a first come, first serve basis.  Therefore, as a courtesy to all who call for availability, your wedding date will be held for five business days starting from the contract date.

How would you describe yourself?

I am laid back, honest, passionate, outgoing, and loving.  I am fashion driven and when I meet brides talk about their shoes and the details of their wedding plans.  It just brings back that excitement of when I was a bride.   I love to connect with brides and discuss all that goes into create a beautiful wedding day.
