+++ what do you shoot with?
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III and a Canon 6D. I always shoot with a 50mm 1.2, with a 35mm f/1.4, 70-200m f/2.8, and 24 - 105mm f/4 as some extras depending on the setting.
+++ do you require a retainer fee to secure my wedding date?
Yes. We have a nonrefundable 25% retainer fee plus a signed contract to secure your date.
+++ are second shooters included?
If you want one, there is an extra fee to compensate them for their talent & time assisting me. My second photographer's are great to have along if you want extra angles. However, I have shot several weddings on my own and am totally comfortable photographing a wedding on my own! Friday weddings do not come with a second shooter//can be negotiated.
+++ how many hours should i book you for?
Ideally, I believe that 8 hours is the perfect amount of time for me to capture all the details of your wedding. Some wedding days do require more coverage, so we can go into a more customized timeline for you! I have helpful timelines for your aid, and we can even meet for coffee to go over what is best for your wedding day. I love coffee & wedding conversations.
+++ how many photos should I expect?
I love the story-telling aspect of photography! The emotions, power of a commitment, and the "real moments" or "in-between" shots get me fired up, because those are truly organic. With that in mind, you will likely get roughly 75-100 images an hour.
+++ are engagement and/or bridal shoots included?
I have packages that include engagement shoots and/or bridal shoots that are discounted. Let's go adventure somewhere cool.
+++ what should i wear to my engagement shoot?
I have a guide to help you with your expectations for your engagement session - what to expect, how to feel more comfortable, etc. I have a Pinterest board as well!
+++ do you travel for sessions and/or weddings?
Yes! We would love to travel with you or to you to celebrate your love! Those prices are custom, so we can chat about that together.
+++ do you make wedding albums of our photos?
Sadly not at this time, but I adore the quality of artifact uprising -- it's extremely practical + affordable!
