You’ve got Q’s… I’ve got A’s
We love your photos! What’s next?
Let’s get together! First visit my CONTACT page to get in touch. I like getting to know my clients, and vise-versa, so I prefer to start by scheduling an in-person consultation where I can answer questions to your heart’s desire over a nice cup of coffee :)
I also offer detailed timeline planning (free, of course) during your consultation. My biggest priority is making sure your day is as relaxed and enjoyable as possible, and together we can come up with a plan for how your photography will fit into it.
How many weddings do you photograph each year?
I limit my workload to 20 weddings per year. This ensures that I can give your wedding the attention to detail that it deserves, and edit your images to the same standards of near-obsession as the photos you see on my website. And by the way, weekends in summer fill up FAST.
Is the engagement session really included in the wedding price?
YES it is! Remember how I said that I like getting to know my clients? Well, what’s better than a one or two hour photo session for getting to know each other! I consider it a practice session for your wedding. It’s the perfect way to make sure you are comfortable in front of the camera, and know what to expect. And of course, you get an awesome set of photos for your save-the-date cards too. I also have an option without the engagement session.
What should we wear and bring to an engagement session?
I recommend dressing up a little more than usual… these are your engagement photos after all! I think the juxtaposition of a sharply dressed couple looks awesome in a natural setting. Choose colors that “go together” without being “matchy-matchy.” Avoid bold or distracting patterns. Long pants (for the guys) and long skirts/dresses are best, not shorts or short skirts. Look at the other engagement sessions on this website to see what works well. Feel free to ask if you are still unsure.
As far as what to bring, thats up to you. Keep it simple and bring nothing… OR get as elaborate with props as you want. I’ve done champagne picnics, camping tents, cruiser bikes… you name it.
What do we receive?
All of your final photos will be fully edited and then uploaded to a private online gallery with a password, where you can download your hi-resolution files directly. In fact, anyone you share that password with can view and save photos, or even order high quality prints. But you will have FULL PRINTING RIGHTS to print your photos wherever, whenever, and however you like. Forever.
Do you batch-edit photos or outsource?
No way. I spend time individually editing EVERY. SINGLE. IMAGE.
Do you have insurance?
Yep, I’m legit like that.
Do you bring back-up equipment?
Do you back up your photos?
ABSOLUTELY! Thrice, in fact. Hard drive, backup hard drive, and cloud storage. In fact my camera has two memory cards so it makes a backup of each photo instantaneously. So I guess that makes four.
How do we pay?
I accept just about every major form of payment. Unfortunately I must charge 3% fee for credit cards or PayPal, so cash or check is best. I must receive a 50% “retainer” (half of your session fee) in order to reserve your date. So it helps to bring some form of payment to the consultation in case you decide to book that day.
