Congratulations on your engagement! The beginning of a new chapter in life, and also planning an event that will be an extension of yourself. I love shooting weddings because of that very fact. I love capturing a time in your life when everyone you love is around you. It’s an exciting and unique time. My purpose is to tell the story of the two of you.
I’m there from start to finish: I’m interested in capturing your entire day. Your day is only happening once, and I wouldn’t want to skimp on only capturing a portion of it.
I’ll make you look your best. After the wedding is over, I go through all your photos, discard duplicates, color correct and touch up all your photos, and give extra attention to particularly special photos.
You get rights for all the images. You will get the high-resolution originals of all of your photos to use however you would like. I typically deliver 400-500 finished photos. If you would like help putting your images in a book, or being printed, I’d be happy to help. I will deliver them to you in an online gallery that you can share with friends and family and they can also download the photos from the site. I also keep a lifetime backup of your photos.
Engagement photos are portraits of your relationship. I want to take photos that perfectly exemplify the two of you, being where you love, or doing what you love. Let’s go on a hike, jump in the lake, go to your favorite park. Whatever the two of you do, or love to be. I want to make portraits that are extensions of your relationship.
How long does it take to get my photos back? Your photos will be edited and back to you one month after your wedding.
Do you have a second shooter? Absolutely. I work with a variety of other photographers with a similar style as my own, and would happy to arrange it.
What if your camera breaks, or something goes wrong? I’m certainly prepared for any of those situations. I have backup cameras, lenses, memory cards, and everything in between. I understand there are no redos, so I come 100% prepared.
Do you travel for weddings? I certainly do. I’ve had the chance to photograph people all over the world, and I’d love to do it again. Feel free to contact me about your wedding location and date, and we can discuss arrangements.
Can you help me print my photos, or make an album? Certainly. I would be happy to help, we can discuss what you would like more specifically and I can put together prices.
Do you do videography too? I focus on photography, but work with videographers frequently and would be happy to make some recommendations.
How long should I plan for bridal party photos or family photos? I like to have 1-1.5 hours of time. A little more if we have multiple locations or travel involved. Family photos typically take around 45 mins or so. During our consultation, we can go over your timeline in detail.
What should I have prepared before the wedding? I like to have a full wedding timeline, as well as a family photo shot list so we don’t forget anyone.
How do I lock in my wedding date? Send me an email at email@example.com. I will confirm that date, then send you info to send a $350 deposit and sign my photography agreement.
