Generally speaking for weddings that depends on the package which was chosen. As the main photographer I will be with you for the majority of the day and night.

How many images do I get per wedding?
Depending on the length of the day I will present between 400-700 images online for you to view.
Do you offer engagement sessions?
Yes! I love being able to meet and connect with you before the day of your wedding. Let you see how I work as a photographer. This helps you to get comfortable with me before your wedding so you don’t have to worry about a single thing. Also it helps you to get a better since of my style of photography, and it helps me to understand what you want. It is good to hear the story as to how you met and exactly what you are planning to do for your wedding. Many couple have not ever been in front of a professional photographer and the engagement session is to really loosen you two up for actual wedding pictures..
Do you have backups?
Yes! We have backup everything. Cameras, batteries, memory cards, flash units, and etc. We really want to be prepared for anything that could happen during your event.
What happens if you get sick?
I have an entire network of photographers I work with that will be covering the wedding for me.
Do you shoot in Raw or Jpeg?
I choose to shoot in camera RAW format due to the control and quality it brings to your images.
What if something’s wrong with my photos – do you offer reshoots?
Yes. Usually the problem is corrected during the shoot. Sometimes the photos can be made into what you’re looking for in the retouching process, usually for any color or lighting concerns. But in the event that you are not fully satisfied reshooting is absolutely available for free.
Is my deposit refundable?
No, so please be certain before you call to book.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use professional Canon digital cameras, Canon professional speedlights and Canon “L” series lenses. I process all of my photographs on current high end computers (alienware computers) using Photoshop and other professional photography software such as “lightroom”.
Is a deposit required to hold my wedding date?
Yes. Generally, a retainer of 25% of your package price is required to hold your wedding date. The retainer amount applies toward your final contracted fee. The retainer amount is non-refundable. I can accept payment in cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Paypal or American Express. A fee may apply to credit card payments.
When is my final payment due?
Your final payment is due two weeks prior to your event day.
How many photographs will you take during a wedding?
Every wedding package includes unlimited photographs, generally 80-100 photographs per/hour of coverage.
What happens if it rains on my wedding day?
Prior to your event we will develop an alternative plan in case of rain.
When is it best to schedule our engagement portrait?
Anytime within the year to your wedding. Some couples need photos for their save-the-dates while others only want them done right before the wedding. Most of my clients choose to use the photos in a guest sign-in book. In that case, the session would need to be shot no later than a month before the wedding. Most sessions are shot outside, so please leave wiggle room for cancelations due to poor weather. Also I am always looking for suggestions on new locations, so please feel free to keep your eyes open for something fun and different!
