HOW DO I SECURE MY WEDDING DATE?
Once you’ve decided to work with me, I work on a 50% retainer at the time of signing the agreement which will secure your date. All fees are due no less than 30 days prior to the wedding
SHOULD WE DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
I think engagement sessions are a really important aspect of working together. You get to see how I work behind the camera and I gain a better understanding of the two of you and your relationship. So many couples tell me that their engagement session was a great way to prep for wedding day photos.
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
For my film work, I use 2 Mamiya AF medium format cameras, 80 mm f/1.9 lenses, and a 45mm f/2.8 lens. For my digital work, I shoot with professional Nikon camera bodies & professional grade lenses. While I absolutely love the look and feel of medium format film, there are definitely times that call for the speed and low-light capabilities of digital photography. All of my digital images are carefully edited to match the look of my film images.
DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?
Yes, absolutely. Equipment failures can happen so I always make sure to have backup gear on hand to continue documenting your day.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
You really can’t go wrong with soft neutral tones. They look absolutely beautiful on camera and will stand the test of time. I would recommend avoiding bold and busy patterns. Ultimately, I’d like you to feel comfortable and happy with your outfits so please feel free to contact me prior to your session and we can discuss details. Don’t worry, I have a outfit inspiration guide I can share with you as well.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?
I believe in quality over quantity so rest assured you’ll receive the best of the best. I typically produce 60-80 images per hour of photography coverage. Normal 8 hours of coverage renders 600-900 images.
HOW LONG IS THE TURNAROUND TIME?
Images are typically delivered within six-eight weeks but I do my best to get them to you sooner if possible. Portrait sessions take around two weeks.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Definitely. I am currently based in Austin, TX but I love to travel and will travel anywhere in the world to capture your day. I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph weddings from California to New York, the Caribbean and so many beautiful places in between.
