Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How would you describe your photographic style?
A. My style is about capturing your unique love story in a way that feels as timeless and romantic as a classic Hollywood movie. I do this by utilizing a mix of journalistic and directed techniques, and through my unique use of lighting to give you images that feel timeless but not dated. My balance of capturing natural moments and creating opportunities for new moments provides the perfect balance for my couple's photographs. Oh, and every wedding image you see on this website is from actual weddings that I photographed. I don't post "styled session" pictures and try to pass them off as actual wedding images.
Q. What should I look for in a wedding photographer?
A. When you type "wedding photography
I've been a full-time professional la wedding photographer for over 9 years so I have the experience it takes to give my clients the images they deserve! It's also important to feel comfortable and relaxed with your photographer as you'll be spending the majority of your wedding day with them. As you can see, choosing the right wedding photography for your wedding goes way beyond price and is not an area of the budget that you'd want to skimp on!
Q. Will you be the only photographer at my wedding?
A. Most of my wedding collections include both me and a 2nd photographer/assistant to photograph your day! I'll always be the "lead" photographer because I feel it's important for clients to "connect" with the photographer's that will be capturing their wedding. I never "farm out" my couple's weddings to associates!
Q. How many weddings do you book per year?
A. I like to provide my couples with a personal experience so I only book a limited number of weddings per year. I also limit the number I do because I'd die of exhaustion if I booked 2 or 3 weddings every weekend!
Q. Are your packages customizable?
A. Because one size doesn't fit all, my packages can be customized to fit your needs and tastes. To learn more about what I can do for you, please fill out my Contact Form!
Q. Will I get a copy of my images?
A. All my packages include a copy of high-resolution images because I feel it's important for my couples to have all their memories available to them at any time. Each image will have basic color and exposure correction applied so you'll be able to make great prints. Plus, you'll get a standard color, b&w, and signature look version of each image!
Q. Do you offer engagement sessions?
A. Absolutely! I encourage e-sessions because they're a great way to get comfortable with me and with having your picture taken before your wedding. By the time your wedding comes, you'll feel much more relaxed when it comes to pictures. Plus you'll get some awesome e-session images!
Q. What kind of camera do you shoot with?
A. I shoot with old school plastic disposable cameras....just kidding! I shoot with a full assortment of Canon digital SLR cameras and professional lenses. I also have equipment and lighting to handle just about any situation! It's important to note that while professional equipment is great to have, it's really the photographer's experience and eye that makes a good image great.
Q. Are you available for destination weddings or an engagement session that is not in the area?
A. Definitely, but a travel fee may apply.
Q. When will my images be ready to view?
A. Your images will be available to view in a password protected online gallery within 4-6 weeks after your wedding date.
Q. What if I book a package that comes with let's say 7 hours of photography coverage and I
A. No problem. You can add hours at the package discount rate any time before the wedding and at my regular rate the day of the wedding.
Q. Do I get to choose the images that go into my album?
A. Definitely. I ask for your favorite images before I start your album design because I want you to love everything about your album, especially the images in the design!
Q. When will I receive my album?
A. Typically around 4-6 weeks after you approve your final album design although the time can vary depending on the time of year and how busy the album maker is.
Q. Do you recommend that I see my fiancé before the ceremony?
A. I absolutely encourage it! When you see each other before the ceremony I'm able to set up a “first look” where I can capture some very emotional and romantic moments. Also when you see each other before the ceremony I can get the family and bridal pictures done before so you can spend time enjoying your cocktail hour with guests. Trust me; this is better than cramming all the pictures into the small period of time between the ceremony and reception!
Q. Are you insured?
A. Yes, I am fully insured and can provide proof of insurance to your venue if necessary!
Q. Do you offer videography services?
A. I specialize exclusively in photography to give you the best images I can. I can refer you to a talented videographer though!
Q. When and where can we meet?
A. I meet with new clients at my home studio. If you have any questions or if you'd like to set up a time to meet, please fill out my Contact Form. I look forward to hearing from you!
