HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
If my work speaks to you then you understand my style. It’s inspired by years of international travel. Photography is my creative outlet and I get joy out of it. I mostly shoot with a documentary approach mixed with classic and creative portraiture. I love clean and timeless images. Over stylized Photoshop filters are not allowed. I excel at capturing moments. I love incorporating environments and landscapes into the images I capture. I swoon warm and glowing natural light and do my best work outdoors.
DO YOU HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER THAT WILL BE WORKING WITH YOU?
Almost all wedding photographers implicitly or explicitly charge for a second photographer because they have to subcontract with the other photographer. While It never hurts to have an additional set of eyes, in many cases a second photographer is not needed. I only recommend a second photographer to be with me only if your wedding has a lot of events, large guest count and/or wedding party and complicated logistics (i.e., getting ready, ceremony and reception venues are spread across town). Otherwise, it’s not worth the additional investment. I can cover a lot on my own but there are situations where I can’t be in two places at once. If you’re still unsure, we can talk about your wedding and see what will work best for you.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET OUR PHOTOS?
My delivery window is within 4 weeks. This timeframe allows me to get your collection edited properly and the online gallery built.
HOW LONG WILL THE ONLINE GALLERY BE AVAILABLE?
The online gallery will be available for six months after the delivery date. I highly encourage you to store your images in a safe and secure place as I can’t guarantee perpetual archival of the images.
WHAT USAGE RIGHTS DO WE HAVE WITH OUR IMAGES?
You can pretty much do anything with them – share with family and friends, post on social media and buy print and albums. My small ask of you is to not alter the image with those horrible Instagram filters.
IS AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION NECESSARY?
No, but the point of an engagement session is not at all about the photos. This is an opportunity for us to get know each other, teach you how to be at ease in front of the camera and establish trust in having me around on the wedding day. You’ll end up with some pretty photos to boot.
WHOA! THAT'S FAST! HOW DO WE GET OUR IMAGES?
The images are delivered through an online gallery. Just a couple of clicks and all the high-resolution images are automatically downloaded to your local drive. These images are high resolution and can be used for canvas and large prints.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Heck yeah, I do! Domestic or international. Locations more than a two-hour drive from Seattle are considered destination weddings and a travel fee will be involved. The fee is estimated based on distance to the destination, local accommodation rates during peak/off-peak travel seasons and other logistics. I require arriving the day before and stay locally to mitigate the risk of arriving late or completely miss the wedding day due to travel delays.
THIS ALL SOUNDS GREAT! CAN WE MEET IN PERSON?
I think we should! Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can meet at a coffee shop, a wine bar or via Skype/FaceTime. Whatever is easier for you.
WE LOVE YOUR WORK! HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
My bookings are on a first-come-first-serve basis. A 50% retainer and a signed contract are all it takes to secure your wedding date.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Cash, check, Paypal, and all major credit cards. Payment, contracts, and delivery are all handled online.
DO YOU OFFER WEDDING ALBUMS AND DESIGN SERVICES?
Yes, I do. The fee for the wedding album and design services are in addition to the wedding photography package listed above. The pricing for the album and design services depend on the size, type and number of page spreads that you choose.
