How many weddings do you book a year?
I aim to book approximately 20-25 weddings a year. This averages to about 1-2 weddings per month and allows enough time and care required to deliver the proper level of attention and communication for each event. Once a wedding is booked, I will initiate conversation regarding details of the engagement session. We will cover potential locations, concepts, attire, etc. Then, one month prior to the big day I will schedule meetings with the venue and communicate with the wedding planner to review the timeline. This is when we will also schedule a meeting or phone call to discuss new business, further in-depth details planned for the day and plan a follow-up call, if needed.
How many images will I receive?
Each gallery will vary in the total image count and is dependent upon a number of variables.
Are you planning a morning/brunch wedding?
How big is your wedding party?
How big is your family?
How many guests will be in attendance?
Will you make table visits?
Will you schedule traditional activities during the reception? E.g. Father/Daughter dance, bouquet/garter toss, games…
I have delivered galleries between 450-1,200 images with an average total image count of about 800 pictures per gallery.
What is your turnaround?
The final gallery will be delivered to you within 4-6 weeks of your wedding day.
Prints will be delivered within one week of final gallery delivery.
Albums will be delivered within 3-4 weeks upon design approval.
How do you describe your shooting style?
Throughout the wedding day I will direct your movements and interactions to capture your most natural self. I will position and pose you for more traditional images, but I also try to offer verbal cues and direction to ease any nerves and bring out natural interaction.
I have been shooting weddings since 2016.
How long have you been shooting weddings?
Film images are shot on Mamiya 645 while digital images are taken on Canon 5D Mark III.
What type of cameras do you shoot with?
Shooting on film offers the most dynamic rendering of light and it also allows me to slow down and shoot with heightened intention. Simply put, I just love the results and enjoy the process. Film photography at weddings allows me to further established my look and my brand—I describe it as clean, sophisticated, light-infused, and timeless.
Digital shooting will always be a necessity for me. When there are fast-moving subjects, dimly lit rooms involved, or the need for a quick turnaround, a digital camera is in my opinion a superior tool.
Why are you a hybrid photographer? Why do you shoot both on film and digitally?
A fully executed contract and non-refundable retainer are required to reserve your date. Both most be completed before the reservation can be confirmed.
