Do we get the digital files? Absolutely. This is something I have been doing since day one when I started out in 2012. I think it’s important for my clients to have those files and have the ability to use, print and share them however they’d like.
How are they delivered? I used to deliver them a custom printed USB. But with the advancement of technology better options are now available to us. No more having to worry about a DVD getting lost or scratched. Your online gallery of photos will all be stored in the cloud as well. Easily accessible on any computer, mobile device or tablet. You can even order prints direct from the gallery at very affordable prices from printing facilities only available to professional photographers. Lastly, you can send that link to all your friends and family so they too can enjoy the photos and download the ones they like of themselves.
Do you have a second shooter? I do include a second shooter in a couple of my packages.
What kind of gear do you use? I use Canon professional gear. I have top of the line cameras and lenses.
Are you a “natural light” photographer? I love shooting natural light when I can and it’s available. However I am trained and even teach others how to use, modify and create light from flashes in order to create beautiful images no matter what the conditions. That means if there is a dark overcast in the sky, rain, or even if things are running late and the ceremony ends after dark — I’ve got you covered. I am able to create the images you’ll love no matter what is thrown at us.
RESERVE OUR DATE
How do I reserve you for our wedding day? I make this quite easy. The two things needed to reserve your date are the signed wedding agreement and a $500 retainer. Once we have talked, emailed or video chat and made sure I have the date available and would be a good fit I’ll send you a copy of the contract to sign the agreement and process the payment using any major credit/debit card, cash, or personal check. Once those two things are done – I will put it on my calendar and that date will be yours.
How many photos will I get? Each wedding is different. Depending on time and details, I generally provide around 75 pictures per hour of wedding coverage.
Are they high resolution? Absolutely. The photos will be optimized so not only are the high resolution and will print amazing, but they are also stripped of all the unnecessary information that makes file sizes large and bloated. This way you can download the images quicker, attach them to emails, share on Facebook and upload to your favorite cloud server without it taking weeks. Over the years I have dialed in the perfect optimized file size that gives you all the benefits of printing and working with the images online as possible.
How long before I see them? A few days following the big day, I post a few sneak peaks on Facebook. The full gallery of images will be available for viewing around 6 weeks after the wedding.
Do I have to order prints through you? No. You can download and order your prints wherever you would like. If you like things that are convenient and easy you’ll love the print order system built directly into the gallery though. Prices are extremely affordable and the prints are printed at an amazing production facility that works solely with professional photographers and delivers direct to your home in just a few days. So if you want to do it yourself you can, but if you like it easy I’ve made that possible for you as well.
Do we need to feed you? It’s not required but sure appreciated. I am even ok if you want to order me a pizza. If it is agreed that I will have a second shooter at the wedding covering dinner service it is appreciated that they are fed as well.
Do you need a space at a table? Nope. Actually I’d prefer not to sit with the guests. Not because I don’t want to meet them but because I am usually working at the same time as I am eating. I typically find a hidden corner somewhere (or behind the DJ) and as I am eating I will be downloading photos, cleaning gear, charging batteries etc. Also there will be times when I need to get up quickly to take photos of an event that is happening. So it is always much better for me to not have to excuse myself constantly from a table of your friends and family.
How do I reach you? Easiest way is using the contact form built into the site. You can also shoot me a text message at 731-267-9699. I only listen to voice mails a few times a week so email, text or even reaching out on Facebook are the best ways to reach me. After an initial chat or email exchange I love to set up a meeting to get to know one another either face to face or video chat. It’s a wonderful way of learning about each other, chatting about the wedding and answering any questions you might have for me.
