Q : What equipment do you use?
A: I use professional Canon cameras and lenses.
Q: How do I go about booking you?
A: Dates can only be secured with a non-refundable reservation fee. I do not hold dates under any circumstances in fairness to others who might be interested in the same date. In order to give my couples my undivided attention and fantastic service, I only book up to 10 weddings per year.
Q: Are engagement sessions included in the wedding packages?
A: Absolutely! I include an engagement session with every wedding collection. It is important to me that you have great images to document this time in your relationship! But it is also key to having a great photography experience on your wedding day. Think of the engagement shoot as a practice run for the wedding. I will already be familiar with how to work with each other. And instead of a stranger showing up with a camera on your wedding day, you will be greeted by a friend who is ready to capture all of your special moments!
Q: Do you travel for weddings and portrait sessions?
A: Absolutely! Nothing inspires me like new adventures.
Q : Will we receive color & BW photos?
A: You will receive artistic processing of each image. An artistic decision will be made for each individual image to process in either color or black & white
Q: Do you have backup equipment?
A: Yes, I always bring along extra camera bodies, lenses, flashes, memory cards and batteries.
Q: Do you deliver every image you shoot?
A: For a portrait session, you can usually expect around 40-60 images. With an 8 hour wedding day, you can usually expect 600 or more images. I always choose to give you the best images from all that were taken. You will not receive the images that have been rejected in my editing process. Quality is always important to me concerning your wedding coverage or session. I’d rather give you 500 stunning images from your wedding that you will love rather than 1000 mediocre uninspired images .
Q: Does your studio provide videography services?
A: I do not provide videography services at this time. Although, I can assist you with recommendations upon request.
Q: What additional fees are associated with destination weddings?
A: While I am based out of Portland, Oregon, I serve clients all around the world. Destination wedding photography packages are simply my standard packages plus the cost of travel and reasonable accommodations if necessary. Lower rates may apply depending on the specific circumstances. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Q: Do you offer gift certificates?
