FAQs

WHAT KIND OF PHOTOS WILL YOU CREATE?
I consider my style documentary wedding photography. I come from a fine art background and training and utilize this experience to strive to make unique portraits and fully capture every aspect of your day. The photos you receive are high quality large file edits that will allow you to print archival photos from which I can make gorgeous wedding albums. 

DO YOU DO DESTINATION WEDDINGS OR ELOPEMENTS?
Emphatically yes! I love weddings that are creative and out of the ordinary and they tend to create the most unique and amazing images. Travel prices will be included in final quote. 

WHAT EXTRA SERVICES DO YOU PROVIDE FOR WEDDINGS?
For additional costs a second photographer can be provided which in my opinion is an absolutely priceless add-on for fully covering a large wedding event. I also provide unique designed and personalized wedding albums. 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE IMAGES BACK?
I pride myself on editing your images as perfectly as possible which can take a little time.
I aim to present an album of wedding files or a portrait session anywhere from 8-12 weeks, but always deliver all edits as fast as possible and provide a teaser group of images for each wedding.  

WILL YOU PROVIDE RAW FILES UPON REQUEST?
RAW files are just what they say, not fully baked and unpresentable. Your file size will be of large quality but I do not provide RAW unprocessed images. Trust me, you don't want to see the images without magical editing applied to them first.

WHO HAS OWNERSHIP OF THE IMAGES?
I continue to hold ownership of the images in that I can contractually use them for advertising, on my website or social media unless stipulated otherwise by the client. Ultimately, I pass on copyright usage to the client and they are allowed to use the images however they like without any extra cost. I just ask if you post them online or anywhere to give credit where credit is due and have a link provided to my work.
I do have local printers that I use for wonderful archival printing and framing that are available upon request. I don't watermark my images. 

WHEN DO YOU REQUIRE PAYMENT?
For portrait and event sessions I require payment at the end of the work day.
For weddings I require a 25% retainer and the balance on the wedding day. 

WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
Rates vary somewhat depending on the type of gig and the specifics of covering it and editing the final images.
Here are some general starting spots for my pricing:
- Wedding packages start at $2,800
- Portrait sessions start at $250

HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR TIME WHEN YOU'RE NOT PHOTOGRAPHING?
I am a full time RN, husband and father like woah
