Frequent Asked Questions (FAQ)
1. What are the advantages of hiring a professional?
A professional wedding photographer is experienced in capturing beautiful images despite the often stressful conditions that a wedding can present.

3. You say you do photojournalistic photography but will you also do the formal posed photos?
Yes. I will shoot as many or as few formal photos as you want. I always encourage my clients to shoot at least a handful of formals. They are nice to have and help balance out a wedding album.
4. Do you shoot the weddings yourself?
Yes. I personally do all of the work related to the photography of your wedding including the consultation, the shooting, the overseeing of the digital file and print processing, the production of your album and everything in between. My one and only goal is to make you as happy as possible.
5. How long have you been a professional photographer?
I have been making a full-time living from photography since 2004. I realized that photojournalistic wedding photography was something that I enjoyed and began shooting weddings as the main focus of my business.
6. What if I don’t like having my photo taken?
Don’t worry many people feel the same way. We will discuss all your concerns before the day to take into account any worries you may have. Certain styles of photography are less intrusive then others and there are many way to make you feel more comfortable and still get the shots you want from the day.
7. Do you have a photographic bridal gift registry?
Yes. An Album registry is another way that helps you get the photos you want. Your guests can make monetary contributions towards your wedding album. We provide you with a registry card to send to your guest giving them an easy option of purchasing gift certificates for you to put towards your wedding photography package.
8. How many photographers will attend our wedding?
Any wedding photography package with 8 or more hours coverage will include two photographers – a principal and a secondary photographer to capture multiple angles of each special moment from your day.
9. What is your philosophy on wedding photography?
I believe that all my clients deserve the best value and service. I provide a highly personalized and tailored service to meet your individual needs and expectations. Capturing your wedding true to life is my mission.
10. Do you limit the amount of images that you take?
No. I shoot as many photos that it takes to properly photograph your wedding. The requirements of your particular wedding will dictate how many images will be shot. I shoot between 800 and 1500 photos during most eight hour weddings.
11. What kind of equipment do you use?
I use Canon digital cameras and lenses. I have two cameras on me at all times, one with a wide angle lens and one with a telephoto lens so that I have to do very little lens changing.
12. Do you offer engagement session?
Yes, there is really no better way to connect initially than doing a simple and fun engagement photo session. Besides, you won’t be camera-shy on the wedding day.
13. How long will it take for us to see the photos from our wedding?
You will receive your photos within three to four weeks from your wedding date.
14. Can we print the photos ourselves?
Yes, you can print the photos yourself at a professional lab. The files are yours to use and share.
15. Do you include a wedding album in your base packages?
No. I like to keep the shooting of your wedding and the creation of your custom wedding album separate since they both involve a very different set of decisions.
16. What does a custom designed wedding album cost?
The cost of wedding albums varies greatly depending on manufacturer, style and size. If you know specifically what you want I can give you a more exact quote.
