Booking a photographer for your wedding or event can be a very stressful process. Here are the answers to a number of commonly asked questions!
How Far In Advance to Book?
It is first come! It is very common for me to need to turn down couples because I'm already booked on their date. Book as early as possible. A written contract is prepared when we have the details worked out, and a deposit is made in order to be considered "booked". Usuallly we are booked by the first 2 months of the year for the entire year sessions. Not always, so please check with us just in case!
How Much Do You Charge and What Is The Deposit?
Please contact me and we can discuss. Each wedding is different and I make all wedding packages custom to each bride.
What Will I Receive In The End?
For all sessions, you receive high resolution digital images that have been edited and processed by yours truly. I do all the editing myself. You receive a release as well to print/use as you would like.
Do You Shoot Digital Or Film?
I shoot in digital format. In addition, I shoot in raw but will always give you jpeg files.
When Will I Receive My Photos?
I ask couples to plan on 4-6 weeks. That being said, I always put up "sneak peeks" on facebook so you don't have to wait too long!
Do You Work With A Shot List?
I have a questionnaire that I ask all couples to fill out prior to the wedding. This covers all sorts of things, including a shot list. I do work off that list if you provide me one.
Who Will Be At My Wedding?
I am always the photographer, and do not contract out my weddings. If you've requested a second photographer, I will bring one of my experienced assistants with me. More often then not, this is my graphic designer husband.
What If You Are Sick?
I have lots of connections and will always assist in finding a suitable replacement. If there is a planned conflict where I cannot make the event (scheduled surgery, broken arm...?) I offer to assist in finding a replacement, or if you choose, give you a refund to hire a different photographer.
