a few questions…
Can I customize a package to fit my needs?
Absolutely YES! I'm willing to work with all types of budgets. Let's make it happen!
How long after the Wedding will we receive our images? How will they be delivered?
My usual turnaround time is about 8-10weeks. I use a website called “Pic-Time” to deliver all of your High Res. images.
Do you deliver every image you shoot? Do you supply RAW files?
When it comes to picking photos, I choose the ones that I feel are best. I can shoot over 1,500 images (easily) during a wedding day and usually wind up editing about half of that, maybe even less. As far as RAW files go, I do not supply those to my couples. The main reason being is that the edited images I deliver show my style.
Am I able to edit our photos using Instagram or any other photo editing app?
The simple answer is, no. I along with many other photographers have taken y e a r s to create a style to make each and every one of us unique. My style of editing helps me stand out from other Wedding Photographers and when you use photo editing apps and post these re-edited images to your social media, your'e not allowing future clients (which may even include some of your family and friends!) to see my true work.
Do you expect to be tipped after the wedding?
Photographers should not expect to be tipped after shooting a wedding. I will say that it is great to feel appreciated for the work that we put forth to capture your day, but that doesn't mean I expect money. I've had clients give me gifts or even a "thank you" note. Even a simple text or email the next day is always appreciated too! I will emphasize again though, I would never expect to be tipped, but I (and many other photographers that I've talked to about this) always appreciate being appreciated.
Why do you need to be fed at the same time that the Bride and Groom are fed?
This is a HUGE deal for Photographers, because when you eat is the only time that we get to eat. This means that if we get fed during any other time, we may miss important events like: your first dance, parent dances, toasts or even cutting of the cake! This is especially important if the Venue sits us somewhere that isn’t in the same room as your wedding reception.
**My only suggestion is that you call the Venue ahead of time to inform them that they are to set up an area inside the reception hall for us to sit and eat, along with scheduling for our meals to come out the same time as the Bride, Groom and bridal party.
**Also, if it works in with your table plans, why not fit us in at a guest table! I love meeting and talking with guests!
If we are booked to work together, when or how can I get in touch with you? Am I able to get in touch with you after the wedding as well?
I look at my work week like any other business work week. I’m always open to receiving e-mails all day/everyday, but when it comes to text messages and calls please leave it to these hours only:
Monday: 11am - 5pm (texts and calls)
Tuesday: 11am - 5pm (texts and calls)
Wednesday: 11am - 5pm (texts and calls)
Thursday: 11am - 5pm (texts and calls)
Friday: 11am - 5pm (texts and calls)
Saturday: email only
Sunday: email only
If you text me after 5pm, I will respond the next day. Just like working a 9-5 job, once you leave work… you want to leave work. So please respect that even though I work from home, this lady needs a break too! Thanks in advance for respecting these wishes.
What type of equipment do you shoot with?
I shoot with a two Canon Mark II's, a Canon 50mm and a Canon 24-70mm.
