Some Frequently Asked Questions
The HOw and what of it
HOW MANY WEDDINGS A YEAR DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH?
I ONLY TAKE 35 WEDDINGS A YEAR. I DO THIS SO I CAN GIVE MY COUPLES THE BEST EXPERIENCE AND PHOTOS POSSIBLE AND NOT SPREAD MYSELF TOO THIN.
WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
HMMM...IM NOT REALLY INTO LABELS SO LET ME GIVE YOU A COUPLE ADJECTIVES INSTEAD... RELAXED, ENGAGING, ROMANTIC, STORYTELLING. I BELIEVE IN CAPTURING THOSE FLEETING MOMENTS OF EMOTION, EXPRESSION, AND YES - LOVE. BUT I ALSO DON'T LIKE TO TAKE THINGS TOO SERIOUSLY...OBVIOUSLY.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
I’VE BEEN A FULL TIME PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER SINCE 2013. DON'T WORRY, I'VE BEEN HOLDING A CAMERA SINCE THE DAY I COULD WALK AS THE STORY GOES. TAKE A LOOK AT MY REVIEWS TO SEE ALL OF THE EGO MASSAGING STARS FROM MY PAST CLIENTS.
what to expect
HOW MANY PHOTOS CAN WE EXPECT FROM OUR WEDDING DAY?
DO YOU GIVE RAW UN-EDITED IMAGES?
NUMBERS OF PHOTOGRAPHS VARY DEPENDING ON ALL KINDS OF FACTORS: HOW MANY PEOPLE, HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS, THE FORMAT OF YOUR WEDDING, EVEN THE WEATHER. I WOULD SAY 600ISH IS A NUMBER TO EXPECT. I DON'T WITHHOLD ANY IMAGES, THESE ARE YOUR MEMORIES, I PROMISE TO CAPTURE THEM FULLY AND GIVE YOU MORE THAN ENOUGH IMAGES TO REMEMBER THIS MOMENTOUS OCCASION.
NOPE. it's LIKE ASKING a BAKER TO DELIVER YOU A CAKE - BUT NOT BAKED, JUST ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS MIXED TOGETHER IN THE PAN. IT STILL NEEDS TIME TO BAKE AND A LITTLE BIT OF ICING ON TOP.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT?
CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP US?
HEAVEN FORBIDS THIS HAPPENS, AS IT WOULD ONLY HAPPEN IF IT WERE OUT OF MY CONTROL (force majeure, ILLNESS OR DEATH). IF THIS were TO HAPPEN, THE PLAN IS TO SUMMON MY AMAZING TEAM OF PHOTOGRAPHERS AND MAKE SHIT HAPPEN SO THAT YOUR DAY GOES OFF WITH OUT A HITCH.
I BELIEVE IN PROMOTING SELF LOVE AND BODY POSITIVITY, SO I DON’T ALTER THE WAY YOU LOOK OTHER THAN SKIN BLEMISHES OR ANYTHING TEMPORARY THAT WOULD NOT NORMALLY BE THERE (BRUISE, SCRAPE, ACNE, ETC. AND ONLY YOU AND YOUR PARTNER).
WHAT ABOUT BAD WEATHER
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
As much as I wish I just can't seem to make the weather do what I want, Ever! But its probably for the best because some of my most favorite images have come from bad weather. Not saying good weather is bad but I am saying that it is best to just roll with it. If it is a hazardous situation, of course we reschedule. But don't let a few clouds get you down.
About 8 weeks depending on wether you get married in the peak season or during the "holidays". It's important not to rush when editing and putting your collection together. We are going for quality here.
