Do we get the digital files? Absolutely. This is something I have been doing since day one .I think it's important for my clients to have those files and have the ability to use, print and share them however they'd like. How are they delivered? I used to deliver them via DVD. But with the advancement of technology better options are now available to us. No more having to worry about a DVD getting lost or scratched. Your online gallery of photos will all be stored in the cloud. Easily accessible on any computer, mobile device or tablet. One button click and you'll start downloading all images. You can even order prints direct from the gallery at very affordable prices from printing facilities only available to professional photographers. Lastly, you can send that link to all your friends and family so they too can enjoy the photos and download the ones they like of themselves.
What kind of gear do you use?
I use Nikon professional gear. I have top of the line cameras and lenses. When I shoot all images are saved to two different memory cards at the same time as a precaution in case one card has errors. This feature is something only available in the most high end equipment. Are you a "natural light" photographer? I love shooting natural light when I can and it's available. However I am trained how to use, modify and create light from flashes in order to create beautiful images no matter what the conditions. That means if there is a dark overcast sky, rain, or even if things are running late and the ceremony ends after dark --- I've got you covered. I am able to create the images you'll love no matter what is thrown at us.
RESERVE OUR DATE
How do I reserve you for our wedding day?
I make this quite easy. The two things needed to reserve your date, the signed wedding agreement and a 50% retainer. Once we have talked, emailed and made sure I have the date available and would be a good fit I'll send you to sign the agreement.Once those two things are done - I will put it on my calendar and that date will be yours.
How many photos will I get?
300-800 is what I have found is a good number to tell the entire story of a wedding day and around what you should expect.
Color or Black & White?
You will get the photos in my unique and timeless color toning as well as in my artistic black and white. Are they high resolution? Absolutely. The photos will be optimized so not only are the high resolution and will print amazing, but they are also stripped of all the unnecessary information that makes file sizes large and bloated. This way you can download the images quicker, attach them to emails, share on Facebook and upload to your favorite cloud server without it taking weeks. Over the years I have dialed in the perfect optimized file size that gives you all the benefits of printing and working with the images online as possible.
How long before I see them?
I try to get them to you quicker but give myself thirty days to make sure I can edit them up nicely.
Do I have to order prints through you?
You can download and order your prints wherever you would like. I
Do we need to feed you?
It's not required but sure appreciated. I am even ok if you want to order me a pizza. :) If it is agreed that I will have a second shooter at the wedding covering dinner service it is appreciated that they are fed as well.
Do you need a space at a table?
Nope. Actually I'd prefer not to sit with the guests. Not because I don't want to meet them but because I am usually working at the same time as I am eating. I typically find a hidden corner somewhere (or behind the DJ) and as I am eating I will be downloading photos, cleaning gear, charging batteries etc. Also there will be times when I need to get up quickly to take photos of an event that is happening. So it is always much better for me to not have to excuse myself constantly from a table of your friends and family.
How do I reach you?
Easiest way is using the contact form built into the site. You can also shoot me a text message at 07474346062. I only listen to voice mails a few times a week so email, text or even reaching out on Facebook are the best ways to reach me. After an initial chat or email exchange I love to set up a meeting to get to know one another either face to face or video chat. It's a wonderful way of learning about each other, chatting about the wedding and answering any questions you might have for me.
