Frequently Asked Questions

Are you a full time professional photographer?

Do you have any formal photography education or are you self taught?
Yes, I have an AS in Commercial Photography, a BA in Art with minor in Fine Art Photography, and an MS in Business & Human Relations. I'm constantly learning though, I believe you should never stop. 

What is your style?
I do a mix of styles so you can have it all, including, journalistic “capturing the moment” of your day naturally as it unfolds. I also shoot editorial photos, as well as traditional elegance posed photos. I’m excellent at capturing that split second special moment and emotion. I am also excellent at posing people in a beautiful and natural way.

Do you offer free no pressure in person consultations?
Absolutely. I think good communication before your wedding is vital so I am fully aware of what you want and what your vision is. 

Can I see an entire wedding from start to finish, not just a few pictures from different weddings?
Yes. I think this is one of the most important things when hiring a photographer for your wedding. I highly recommend this.

Will our pictures be available online for viewing? 
Yes, all weddings go online with every package and are password protected. 

When will our pictures be ready?

Your images should be ready in about 45 days and pictures will be online in that same time frame.

Is it wise to save money by having my cousin shoot my wedding?
Yikes, No. I have heard too many sad stories from couples who wished they could do their photography over again. I know it’s tempting to save money but it’s just not worth it, especially with the most important day of your life. 

Do you prefer inside or outside weddings?
BOTH. I love both for different reasons and can do both beautifully well. I shoot both natural light and have multiple flashes which I bounce for very flattering soft natural light. I can shoot during the day or night and am prepared for any tricky lighting situation.

Can we get a hand crafted wedding book?
Yes. My albums are the finest made with lots of style choices. I use the Graphistudio line out of Italy and they are stunning. 

What equipment do you use? Do you carry back up?

I use all very high end (FX) professional Nikon cameras and equipment. I carry back up equipment and I back up everything. 

Why do you work out of your home?
I choose to work out of my home because I get a lot more done that way and it's more comfortable for me. Plus it saves you money because my overhead is lower. I had an office at one point but it made no sense for me to drive there to edit and meet with people, it just ended up costing me more and wasted a lot of time. It also took longer for me to get things done because I couldn't work late at night after my son was in bed like I do at home, which is great because it allows me to work smarter and make the most of my time.
