Where do you live, and how far will you travel?
I live in Alexandria, VA and love to travel! I charge a small travel fee for events over 40 miles from my home. I love to do destination weddings! Contact me for more info!
What do you charge for wedding photography?
Do you have a second photographer?
Yes! Most of my wedding packages include my second shooter Ben who has been shooting with me since 2014. Having him present allows us to get multiple angles at the ceremony/reception and more coverage when you’re getting ready.
How would you describe your style of photography?
Cinematic. I really enjoy shooting both editorial and photojournalistic styles of photography.
How can I reserve you to shoot my wedding?
In case of an emergency where you can’t shoot my wedding, what happens?
How long will portraits take on our wedding day?
In such a very unlikely scenario, I will do everything that I can to get a replacement. Being in several local photography groups gives me quick access to many ready, willing, and talented photographers. Depending on how the replacement photographer wishes to handle the financial situation, I will refund all fees to you including the deposit.
I would recommend at least 60 minutes total for all of your wedding day portraits, including those of just the bride and groom, formal bridal party shots, and family shots.
Do you have backup equipment?
do you have insurance?
Yes; I have a backup camera body and a large assortment of lenses.
Yes! I am a member of PPA who provide me with equipment and general liability insurance.
Will you shoot other events on my wedding day?
When can I expect my photos?
Once your date is reserved with me, your wedding will be the only event I shoot that day.
For portrait sessions, you’ll receive your photos in about four weeks. Wedding photos will be usually be delivered in six to eight weeks.
How will I receive my photos?
All engagement and wedding photography packages include a link to a private online gallery. From here you can download all of your full-resolution images, share with guests, and order prints. Galleries are backed up for 10 years!
Can I print or post the photos online?
Yes, once I give you the photos, they are yours to use! If requested I will also provide a print release form with the final images. However, I do not allow you to edit or sell the photos we give you. Also, I ask that you credit me where possible (i.e. tag me in social media).
Should we book an engagement session?
Engagement sessions are highly recommended because they allow us a relaxed environment to get to get comfortable with each other and our styles before your big day. They also can show a more intimate and unique side of your love than wedding photos. Wedding packages include a free engagement session!
When and where should I do my engagement session?
Your engagement session should portray the uniqueness of your love, so it’s great to shoot in a location that is significant to your relationship. Any place that has been home to special memories in your relationship is good, as well as places that simply reflect your style. I’m not picky when it comes to the time of day and shooting, but the two hours before sunset (the “golden hour”) are particularly good for photography.
Do you offer prints and albums?
Yes! All the photos delivered to you can be ordered as prints, cards, canvases, and albums directly from the gallery!
