Q: HOW LONG IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
A: The sooner the better especially if your wedding is taking place during a prime summer weekend. If photos are important to you, you should book your photographer as soon as possible, me or someone else.  I'm not kidding when I say the wedding industry is "fast-paced".   Prime dates don't last.  

Q: WHY WON'T YOU PROVIDE FULL PRICING WITHOUT A CONSULTATION?
A: Wedding photography is extremely personal and intimate. (Am I wrong for assuming that most couples may not have planned a wedding before, and probably won't truly understand what they need in terms of coverage)  I want to offer guidance and support.  The last thing I want to do is overwhelm you by just sending a bunch of numbers your way.   I offer an experience... and it starts with the very first email.   There is never any pressure or obligation to hire me just because you book a consultation- so there is nothing to lose.   Quite honestly- I hate being sold to,  therefore, I refuse to "sell"  to those couples who take the time to talk with me. (So fear not- you won't be talking to a salesman- I'm the farthest from that!)  

Q: WHAT WILL MY INVESTMENT BE?
A:  Honestly, it's hard for me to tell you without first knowing more about your wedding.   On Average- my couples invest $4650+ with me.  But your investment may be higher or lower depending on your specific wedding day plans.   I suggest starting a conversation!  You won't be pressured or sold too- but I do want to hear more about your day so I can help you determine what you need.   (and be able to give you a quote without leaving anything out. )

Q: WHAT ABOUT A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER? DO WE NEED ONE?
My second shooters all bring a lot of talent and enthusiasm to the table, so naturally I recommend having one along. Realistically though, I know that budgets exist and that the added cost of a second photographer may be more than you are wanting to spend. As a rule of thumb, if you have more than 150 guests coming to your wedding or a wedding party larger than 10, we would recommend considering adding a second shooter to your wedding package.  When we talk though-  I'll be able to better advise you as to whether you need one or not.  

Q: DO YOU TRAVEL?
A: Hell ya! I've worked in various places including, VT, MA, ME, SC, DC, PA, CT, NC and Haiti.... just to name a few!

Q: WHY DOES THE COST OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY VARY SO MUCH BETWEEN PHOTOGRAPHERS?
A: The cost of wedding photography is kind of like fingerprints – it’s different for everyone (or in this case, every photographer). There are so many variables in the mix that it’s next to impossible for you to compare 2 photographers to each other – you simply can’t compare apples to oranges.

What I can say; however, is that some photographers (especially those who are first starting out) may be cutting costs in certain areas. Insurances, extra hard drives and online storage for backing up files, professional level backup gear, continuing education – these things are all part of a photographer’s cost of doing business. If you’ve found someone whose price seems too good to be true, it might be because something is missing behind-the-scenes that could put your images at risk.     

Q: COMPLIMENTARY ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS-
A: Complimentary Engagement sessions are scheduled Weekdays.  Weekends are reserved exclusively for weddings or my family time. Thank you for understanding! :)   Sessions must take place within a 30 mile radius from my home office, otherwise additional travel fee's will apply. 

Q: DO WE HAVE TO BOOK IN PERSON?
A: Nope! Most of my couples are busy professionals! Not to mention they live all over the country. I do require a phone
 conversation though. It's important that we determine if we are a good fit for each other.  I want to make sure I can provide you exactly what you are envisioning for your wedding day memories,  and I want to make sure our personalities mesh!  (after all... I will be by your side more than your spouse on your wedding day! LOL... you should like me. haha)  After we chat- I'll send over everything required to reserve your date! (quote, agreement and invoice!) Everything is handled right online. Easy peasy.

Q: WHAT KIND OF GEAR DO YOU USE?
A:  Before I indulge in my gear- it's important to know that the quality of an image comes mostly (99%) from the photographers knowledge about lighting, posing, composition etc.  (and- time given to the photographer to get the images you expect- but that's a topic for another day! LOL) So no matter how fancy the camera is- if the person operating the camera doesn't understand photography- the quality of the image won't be any better than one produced by any ole point and shoot camera that you can buy at Walmart.   Now, don't get me wrong... the gear matters, otherwise I wouldn't invest 10's of thousands of dollars into it.  But it's important to understand that so much more goes into the craft of photography- than just the gear.   

That said-  I shoot with top of the line professional Canon gear.  My three camera bodies are my, Canon 1Dx Mark II,  Canon 5d Mark 4, and the Canon 5d Mark 3.   I have (4) 600 EX RT flashes.   For lenses I have 70-200mm f2.8L IS III,  Canon 100mm f2.8L Macro,  Canon 24-105mm f4 L,  Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art Series.    

Q: ALBUMS!  YOU OFFER ALBUMS!?
A:  Yes I do!   Nothing compares to experiencing your wedding photos in an actual printed album.  As convenient and share-able as digital media has become, it’s also ever-changing. On the other hand, printed photographs; they last for lifetimes and carry with them the nostalgic feelings of the fleeting moments they represent.  I wouldn't be doing my job to my fullest if  I didn't offer albums to all my clients! Which is why we’re proud to offer a line of exquisite, museum grade archival albums that feature minimalistic and contemporary aesthetics that perfectly complement the elegant and timeless imagery we create.  View our Albums HERE
