Authentic and timeless images are my specialty, while bringing to life who you are, in the best and most flattering way possible. I’m honored when I get to follow you throughout the milestones of your life, creating photographs that you will treasure forever. We have fun during the sessions, laughing and getting to know one another. Helping you to see the gold within your self is my ultimate goal.
While I put my heart and soul into my work, I also maintain a professional atmosphere for my clients. I only take on a limited number of weddings per year, so that all my clients receive a high level of attention. Quick responses to emails and phone calls, as well as fast delivery of client images, are among my highest priorities.
I enjoy the simple things in life: sunshine, quiet time with loved ones, enjoying nature; either in the water, on my paddle boarding, or hiking in the woods. I am often dreaming of my next vacation, and thrilled when I can combine work and travel by means of a destination wedding. I value loyalty and honesty, I crave adventure and new experiences, and I always chose to see the positive, both in people as well as in situations.
Q: How soon will I see my photos?
A: We guarantee (as stated in our contract) to have your images to you within 8 weeks from your wedding date. As soon as we have finished editing the photos, they will go on line on your own private gallery. Most clients receive a PIN that will allow them to securely download all of the images directly to their computer. It is recommended that a backup of the images be made in a safe location. At this time we will also mail you the flash drive with high-resolution images on it (if this is included in your package). Most of our clients will images shared on social media shortly after your wedding. Be sure to follow us!
Q: What sort of retouching should we expect?
A: All images are adjusted for color, contrast, clarity and vibrance. We also crop or rotate photos, as well as convert some to black and white, for added variety. Additional retouching of images (blemishes, under-eye circles, exit signs, head swaps etc.) is available upon request and may be subject to an additional charge
Q: How many photographs should we expect?
A: We do not have a set limit to the number of photos that we take or deliver, however our average engagement sessions receives around 200 images, and our average wedding receives around 1200 images.
Q: Do I receive the rights to my photos?
A: Included in our wedding packages are the high-resolution digital files, accompanying that is a signed print release that proves that you have the right to print your own images. These photos are for your personal use only and as gifts for others, and are not to be shared with other vendors unless written permission has been given. As professional photographers, we always retain the rights to every photo that we take, but you also have printing rights.
Q: How do we reserve our wedding date and what are payment policies?
A: A signed contract and a $1000 retainer is needed to secure your wedding date. As long as the balance is paid in full before your wedding, you can make additional payments along the way. You can pay with cash, checks or credit cards. All payments are non-refundable.
Q: What equipment do you use?
A: I use all Canon cameras and lenses. I always carry the 5d Mark 4, and L series lenses with
over-lapping zoom ranges, in additional to extra lighting equipment. All of my cameras and lenses have a backup in the rare event that anything should happen to one of my pieces.
Q: Have you been to my venue before?
A: It's quite possible! With over 18 years of experience, I've been to many venues. The important thing is that we arrive fully equipped to photograph any location, be it a sunny beach, a dark barn or a large ballroom. While experience is lovely, arriving at a new location with a fresh perspective is a lot of fun too! We are honored that you trust us as your wedding photographers.
