Questions and Answers
What’s your pricing?
My wedding packages start at $2400 for wedding and engagement session. I can also do custom packages for elopements or shorter length weddings. Couples typically spend $2800 on customized wedding packages for full weddings.
Contact me for more details! I’d love to meet you and hear about your big day.
Do you travel?
Yes! I love to travel to new places for weddings! I do charge for travel outside a few hours away, but it’s probably lower than you would expect! Example travel weddings: Florida, Washington D.C., St. Louis, Baton Rouge (and I’m always excited for more traveling)
Do you provide the digital images and print release with weddings?
I do! You’ll receive the digital images and print release with your wedding or sessions. For printing 8×10 or larger, I recommend ordering prints through the personal online gallery that you’ll also receive so that your images are guaranteed to be printed from my favorite professional photo lab for the highest quality prints.
Are your delivered photos edited?
Yes! All photos are color and exposure corrected and tweaked until they’re just right. Advanced retouching (facial blemishes, removing over-distracting elements, etc.) is done on photos ordered through the online gallery, canvases, and albums.
What gear do you use?
I’m a Canon guy who shoots with the very best wedding photography equipment. My main gear includes the Canon 5Dmk3, 16-35mm f4, 35mm 1.4, 45mm 2.8, 85mm 1.8, 105mm 2.8 macro, the 135mm 2.0, and also a horde of flashes and extra lighting equipment.
How many photos will be delivered from my wedding?
There’s never an exact amount that I deliver due to the fact that every wedding is different, but I generally deliver an average of 650 photos for an eight hour wedding day.
Do you shoot with a 2nd photographer?
I primarily shoot by myself, but will sometimes work with a 2nd photographer based on which wedding package is chosen. I’m very happy doing it this way and am able to capture a complete picture of the wedding day. If you’re unsure how one person is able to capture all the moments from the wedding day, drop me a note and I’ll be happy to send you full wedding galleries where the whole story from the wedding day is captured on my own.
How soon will we receive our photographs & album?
I do my best to deliver your images as quickly as I can while all the excitement is still fresh in your memory. I’ve delivered every wedding I’ve done in less than 3 weeks, but do have on my contract the fallback of taking up to 8 weeks to deliver photos just in case I were to be away or personal circumstances were to delay my process.
Do you have insurance & backup equipment?
Yes to both! I’m also a big believer in backup equipment. I shoot with two cameras and always keep an additional camera as a backup to those. Each of my cameras also records to multiple cards, so if a memory card failure were to ever happen, I’d have a backup. I’ve thankfully never lost a client’s images and I put a lot of effort into keeping it that way. :)
