FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
On your wedding day, I won’t do posey portraits, except after the ceremony and I do shoot the more formal family portraits.
I’ll ask questions, get you talking, and bring out those natural responses! For the rest of the day, I keep it mostly documentary, capturing the natural moments as they happen. I won’t step in and change the naturally occurring emotion.
DO YOU TRAVEL? WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I’m always traveling, my life is on the road, 3 months in each place, at most. So, yes!!
Your wedding may or may not require a travel fee, depending on where and when it takes place. I’m constantly adding new locations and dates in my current travel schedule. If your location isn’t listed, just get in touch and we’ll make it happen.
WE’RE AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, WHAT WILL WE DO?
So many couples tell me they’re awkward having their photo taken. But please, don’t worry! really. My job is to make you feel comfortable, break this barrier. You don’t need to be model pros, you just need to be honest, open, and you’ll be great!
DO YOU USE BACKUPS?
Yes, I always bring backup gear, and your photos are backed up immediately after your wedding or photoshoot.
DO YOU BRING A SECOND SHOOTER?
With the amount of weddings and elopements that I photograph both interstate and internationally, I have learned to document weddings well on my own and have photographed the majority of my career as the sole photographer. That being said, hiring a second photographer is a great way to get additional coverage on your wedding day, especially if logistics dictate photographs being needed at two places at once. A second photographer is also a great asset in helping document extra detail photos.
WHO HAS COPYRIGHT?
While I’ll retain the copyright of the images from your wedding day, my contract gives personal print and media permissions to my clients for any non-commercial usage. If you have any concerns about privacy, please let me know.
CAN YOU MEET BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?
Establishing a great connection with my clients is paramount to being able to capture amazing photographs, so having some sort of contact beyond email is a prerequisite before booking me as your photographer.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
No later than 8 weeks after your day.
