Planning a wedding and choosing the right wedding photographer for you can be stressful. The FAQ list below is one I have compiled over the years to help you make the best decision for you! If you have any additional questions or want to check my availability, send me a message here.
–FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS–
How would you describe your style?
I try to capture both posed editorial-style shots as well as more natural candid/photojournalistic photos so that you have a nice mix of both. If you prefer more of one or the other, let me know! I like to cater to exactly what you are looking for. I would say that my photo style is very classic and timeless. I like to keep my colors true to life, not overexposed or dark and moody.
Would you recommend a 2nd photographer?
Yes! A 2nd photographer is great for capturing different angles and point-of-views throughout the day. Having a 2nd photographer also means you will get more photos too! And they can help set up any shots as needed to help things run more efficiently/smoothly. I am also happy to shoot your wedding solo if that is more your style.
How soon will we receive our images?
Images are delivered 2-3 weeks after your wedding date! Depending on your wedding date, I can give you a more specific answer, some times of the year are busier than others. But 3 weeks maximum. I like to get started on your photos right after your day so they are fresh in my mind, and I am just as excited to get them to you as you are to receive them.
How do we book you?
First, contact me! Fill out my contact form here, or send me an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can even give me a call/text at 805-586-2980. Next step would be to discuss which package you are interested in and to go over the details of your day, either over the phone or in person! After that, I have a contract to be signed, and a 25% deposit. Then I am yours and your date is reserved!
Are you insured?
Yes I am! If your venue requires proof of insurance, I will send it directly on over to them.
Can I customize a package?
Of course! I am happy to accommodate. Need several days of coverage? Done. Only want a few hours? Definitely. Want to mix and match? Sure. Contact me and we can discuss exactly what you are looking for and create the right package for you based on your budget and needs.
Should I make a shot list?
Yes and no. If there is anything in particular you want that is unique to your wedding, let me know! Any special moments, specific poses, surprises throughout the day, etc. It is also helpful if you make a list of family members for photos so we don’t miss anybody! Other than that, I have been photographing weddings for years and a list more specific than that can be distracting instead of helpful. I don’t want to miss any candid moments by looking down at a list!
What exactly do I get?
Each of my packages comes with approximately 75-100 images per hour. For example, you can expect 600-800 color corrected photos from an 8 hour day. All images are hand edited to look their best (no batch edits). Images are delivered via a downloadable online gallery that you can share with friends and family. As well as a thumb drive. All other items are a-la-carte.
