Q & A


What is Editorial Style Wedding Photography?
I shoot with a storytelling focus. I find sweet beauty in authentic candids and details, and with a background in fashion & portrait photography, I also pose, arrange and give guidance when it's appropriate.


Digital or film?
Mostly digital, occasional experimental film cameras.


What camera and equipment do you use?
Nikon D800 & D700 with a variety of prime, macro, zoom & wide angle lenses.
Portable studio lighting also available.


Do you have an assistant or second photographer?
A second shooter is always an option, and ultimately up to each couple to decide. I am totally cool shooting alone, but particularly for larger weddings, there are perks to having a second shooter (i.e. we can be in more than one place at a time and special moments / reactions can be captured simultaneously). My second shooters are always professional wedding photographers as well, not just "assistants" or friends with cameras. You're in good hands.


Is there a deposit required to book my wedding?
Yes. A $500 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a wedding date. This will then be applied to your final balance which is requested before your ceremony on wedding day.


Add-ons?
You can add on extra hours, a second photographer, engagement shoots, prints & enlargements, and custom fine art wedding albums.


When will I get my pictures?
Within 2 months.


How many pictures will I receive?
A ton. Depends on a variety of factors: the package you chose, the weather, number of locations, and most importantly... you!


Will you edit every picture?
Extensive stylistic editing will be done to the specified number of images in your package. All photos will get basic editing as needed – color corrections, contrast & exposure adjustments if necessary.


What won’t you do?
Not much. =)


What is the resolution of your files?
NRAW, 36.3 megapixels. I'm an absolute sucker for sharp images. The Nikon D800 is a beast in this regard, and you can print your photos quite large without any loss of quality.


What kind of files will you deliver?
High resolution JPEGs, 300 DPI


What if....?
I get you a replacement. Large network. I can still edit your photos if you prefer my style!


Do you have insurance?
Yes. Property & liability insurance. (PPA Insurance)


Photo Albums?
A variety of albums are available for order. The “Whole Shebang” package includes a gorgeous 20-page custom heirloom album.
