FAQ’s

A COLLECTION OF COMMON QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

  • Q: If I want to have your services longer that day, can I add more time?

    A: Absolutely! My hourly rate is $150, and you can add as many hours as you like. I'd love to stay longer and celebrate with you more!

  • YOU’RE THE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR US! HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR WEDDING OR PORTRAIT DATE?

    Great!  The next step is to email me to let me know your date so I can check my availability.  Once we select the best package for you, I will send you a contract to sign and instructions on how to pay the retainer.  I cannot hold any date for either a portrait or a wedding without both the retainer and contract completed.  I can't wait to work with you!

  • MY (HUSBAND/WIFE/FIANCEE/CHILD) HATES BEING IN PHOTOS—CAN YOU HELP ME?

    Yes, it would be my pleasure to help 😉 With children, I often bring something to attract them. Your three year old is obsessed with dinosaurs?  I might have one or two in my bag!  If you are a grown up who just hates being in photos, I try to shoot quickly and we take lots of breaks to chat and have fun.  I regularly hear from my clients that they are surprised at how easy and relaxed they felt at their shoot. Engagement sessions are a great way to practice being in photos and working with me so that way your wedding photos are much more natural, easy, and fun!

  • I DON’T PHOTOGRAPH WELL AND AM SUPER AWKWARD—CAN YOU HELP ME?

    Yes, of course! I understand that you might not have experience being photographed and I'm here to help.  Through my easy shooing style and natural posing, I make sure that you look natural and lovely in your photos.  Some people take a little longer to warm up, and in those cases I make sure that you feel comfortable and relaxed while we are shooting. I promise, I make it painless and fun, and it won't be nearly as bad as you think!

  • HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE MY PHOTOS?

    Engagement and family photos will be available for online viewing approximately three weeks after the shoot.  Weddings normally take 16 calendar weeks of the wedding day.

  • WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES AND PACKAGES?

    You can view my packages (Info menu) and fill up the contact form (Contacts) to give me some details about your plans and check if I am available on your date.

  • WHY DO I HAVE TO PROVIDE MEALS FOR VENDORS AT MY WEDDING?

    Basically, myself and my staff are able to work on a higher level for longer if we've been fed!  We require meals to be provided for any coverage over five hours.  If you choose not to provide a meal for us, we will take a one hour break at some point during your reception to have a meal.

  • DO YOU SHOOT (LARGE / SMALL / INDIAN / PERSIAN / JEWISH / CHRISTIAN / GAY / NON-RELIGIOUS) WEDDINGS?

    Yes, of course!  It would be my pleasure to document your celebration of any faith, non-faith, or orientation.

  • HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

    Modern lifestyle storytelling with a natural aesthetic! My goal is to document your wedding day as truly and creatively as possible. Some part of the wedding it will be a photo journalistic style, the other, I will offer direction by posing you in ways that do not feel unnatural this will mostly happen during your creative portraits of two of you. I love using creative lighting, unique perspectives, angles, compositions and artistic post production refining to bring out our clients personalities and beauty while telling their wedding story.

  • IF WE CANCEL THE WEDDING, WILL WE RECEIVE OUR RETAINER FEE BACK?

    Unfortunately no. Retainer fees are used to reserve your date. Once we’ve reserved your date, we do not accept new clients for your date.

  • HOW DO I RESERVE YOU FOR MY DATE?

    All dates are reserved once we receive your signed contract and deposit.

  • DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT AND A SIGNED CONTRACT?

    A deposit and a signed contract are required to reserve  your date. The initial deposit to reserve is $500, and the remainder is due two weeks before the wedding day.
