F A Q
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? home for me is mesa, az!
WHAT'S IN YOUR CAMERA BAG? canon 5D Mark IV & Mark II, Sigma 35 1.4 Art, Canon 50 mm 1.2L, Canon Speedlite 600EX II‑RT flash
HOW MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY? before starting my wedding photography business a year ago, I second shot many different types of weddings for a total of 4 years.
DO YOU BRING A SECOND SHOOTER ALONG WITH YOU? depending on which package you want, I do bring a second shooter to shoot weddings. You always have the option to add a second shooter if the desired package does not include one.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS? I carefully and meticulously hand edit each photo by myself. Because of this, it can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks. Regular sessions are typically 2-3 weeks. ***During peak wedding season (Sept-Jan), sessions will be made available between 7-9 weeks.
CAN I HAVE THE RAW OR UNEDITED FILES? I never deliver files unedited. To me, the photo becomes art during the editing process and I want to deliver you the best of the best.
HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES? all of your high resolution images will be uploaded to an online gallery, from there you'll be able to directly download & share the images. Also, back up your files as your gallery will only remain active for 1 year.
CAN WE PRINT OUR IMAGES? heck yeah! You will receive printing rights to print whichever photos your heart desires. I recommend going through my professional printing company.
CAN WE SHARE OUR IMAGES ON SOCIAL MEDIA? of course! you have shared rights to the images & can use them for whatever reason you'd like. I just ask that no cropping, editing, or adding filters be done to the images since I've already spent lots of time & effort doing that for you!
WHAT IS THE COST FOR AN ADDITIONAL HOUR OF COVERAGE ON A WEDDING DAY? my hourly rate for additional time is $200 per hour.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY SESSION? wear something you don’t always normally get to wear but really want to. For couples sessions I suggest to coordinate neutral tones as they always photograph best. Try to avoid anything with heavy pattern and logos. We will be doing lots & lots of moving around so keep that in mind (aka heels aren't always the best option)! I'm always happy to help with any questions you have.
What is your booking process? I require a signed contract that I will email you at the time you decide to book with me. For weddings I require a 30% retainer fee due at the time of booking to reserve your wedding date. This amount will be applied to the package you decide on.
if you have any other questions-- please email me! communication with your photographer is key to help everything run smoothly.
