What’s my style – how do I work?
I shoot for me, to be perfectly honest. I assume if you have come this far my style and type of photography appeals to you. If so, I would love to work with you! I strive to create something different every time I pick up a camera. I am very relaxed in my approach and am constantly on the move as I work very hard to tell the story of your day in a way that is refreshing dramatic and whimsical in equal measure
How do you work on our wedding day?
I arrive early and capture the chaos that is getting ready. These are often my favorite parts of the day, full of excitement and drama and laughter. I observe and capture the moments and feel of the day, and of the people there; because every wedding is different of course.
I like to have some time with my couples at some point during the day to create some portraits that are different, beautiful, but mostly unique to you. This is my other favorite time of a wedding day. Throughout I am equally parts quiet or irreverent; anything to make you more comfortable or laugh. Because happy people are easier to photograph.
What are the deliverables?
All weddings come with an online gallery of the edited full resolution images from your wedding. You can share (or not) with anyone. You will also be able to download all the final images directly from the gallery.
Do I need a shot list?
We will have a discussion as we get close to your wedding to discuss the timeline and logistics. You should inform me of any specific shots or people you absolutely must have. I do not typically operate from an exhaustive ‘shot list’ however, as I capture a full representation of your day already
What’s the wedding retainer?
$1000 of the total package cost is due at signing to book your date. Custom packages might change that final retainer figure, but we can discuss details.
How do we book you?
I am available to chat in whatever mode makes the most sense, phone, email, skype, Facetime or in person (analog mode!). Once we have discussed and agreed on an approach, I will send over a contract and payment details via a link to my client portal. Portrait sessions require a deposit as well. Ready to talk? Call me or go here and fill out my contact form!
What are your albums like?
I use a fantastic Texas-based album company to design and create my wedding albums. Albums are all they do, and they only work with professional photographers. I have samples for review, or you can see them here
How long before you get your images?
My contract states 2 months, but I NEVER take that long. You want your pics, I want to get them to you; why would I make you wait forever for them?!
Do you work alone?
I have used assistants in the past when conditions called for it. Not every event needs two photographers, of course. I have a regular photographer I work with and feel it offers more complete coverage, as well as a different viewpoint. As always, contact me and we can discuss the approach that works best for your wedding..
