How many hours do you typically shoot?

Normally I shoot the entire event....getting ready to the last dance. Smaller packages are possible.I typically provide between 8 to 10 hours, depending, but all packages may be customized.

Do you bring second shooter?

For weddings under 125 guests I have a assistant . Over 150 guests  I recommend a second photographer who will cover the wedding along with me.

What about "formals"?

I started in photojournalism and feel a honest approach is generally best. That said, I do take family photos and some "formal" portraits. These can be as creative as time allows. I do want you to attend your cocktail hour so a first look is often recommended.That said the magic of the groom seeing his bride walking down the aisle is unbeatable so we can work with either plan.  I have a natural unscripted approach, but we will consult before the wedding so you get the kind of images you are hoping for.

Do you do engagement shoots?

Yes I think these really help us get acquainted and I love the intimacy that is created between us. 

Do we get to keep the hi-res files? How are they stored?

High resolution files are provided on the online collection which you have full access to. You may download in high or websize resolution, using a private pin number. They are stored at the studio and in the cloud on multiple hard drives.

The Big question- How much do you charge?

                                           Wedding coverage is customized for the event. Shoot us an email with information about your wedding and we can send you package options
