What is your photography style?
Mostly journalistic as I document your day while it unfolds, sometimes a little directed so we can grab a few magazine centerfold worthy photos, and slightly creative so I can add a little flavor and keep my work unique and consistent.
Should we do a First Look?
Yes! I highly recommend it. It is one of the many ways I can deliver the best photos to you of your day. For those that don’t know, a First Look is where we pre-plan a time and spot for you to see each other early in the day so I can capture that moment before the ceremony.
My wedding is in Coeur d’Alene, do you charge a travel fee?
No. If the location is only a short drive from Spokane (50 miles) I normally do not charge an additional amount. If it’s too far to drive back to Spokane the same day, I ask for a nights accommodation to be covered.
Do you do portrait shoots?
Yes I do all sorts of portrait shoots, including high school senior portrait shoots, proposal and engagement shoots, old lovers and family too. Get in contact with me for prices. If you see that I am going to be traveling through your area and would like a portrait shoot, get in contact, I am always happy to shoot portrait sessions when I am traveling.
How do we book you?
Get in contact with me to see if I have your wedding date available. If I do, all I need in order to confirm your date is a retainer to be paid and a signed contract. The remainder is due 4 weeks before the wedding date.
When do we get to see our photos, and how many do we get?
I will have the collection of images ready and sent to you on a usb drive approximately 6-8 weeks after your wedding date. Each image is individually edited by me and not something to be rushed 🙂 A typical full day wedding will have 400-500 photos delivered.
Do you make wedding albums?
Yes I do! Sure, you can upload all the wonderful pictures I give you to your Facebook account, but do you really want Great Aunt Betty commenting on every single one? I’m all for digital sharing– but let’s make sure you also have a tangible, real-life album to hold in your hands and show off on your coffee table.
Can we order prints through you?
Absolutely! You can see most of your options at the bottom of my Wedding Packages page. If you want something not shown just let me know what you would like and I can get it for you.
Do you work with second shooters / assistants?
I work on my own and with second shooters depending on the wedding. I love shooting small intimate weddings where I am the only photographer and I normally shoot most weddings on my own. However, if you have a big wedding with lots of guests it can be a good idea to include a second shooter in your wedding coverage options as they are able to capture a second point of view, be the eyes in the back of my head and also help me with different lighting setups during the reception coverage.
Do you have insurance?
Do you have backup gear?
Yes, of course! I have lots of it! 🙂 I also have backups of your photos, and a backup of your backed up photos sent to the ‘cloud’.
