COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT WEDDINGS
All weddings I shoot come with an engagement session and the final, edited images delivered in an online gallery. This gallery allows you to download all images, order your own professional prints, and share your link with friends & family.
Engagement photos are as much for me as they are for you. Spending time together before your wedding day helps us to get used to each other. You’ll learn how I shoot, and I’ll learn a little more about you. For this reason, I always suggest an engagement session together.
You can generally expect your entire gallery in about 4-6 weeks but a sneak peek within the first two weeks!
The amount of images you receive depends on the amount of time we’re together, and whether or not you choose a second photographer. Most weddings receive somewhere between 50 and 100 images per shooting hour.
When you get your wedding photos back, the first thing you’re going to look for are the photos of you and your new husband or wife. Those are the ones you’re going to hang on your wall and show your friends. Those pictures take time. The more time I have with just the two of you, the more photos we can make together. If your timeline is tight, opt for larger group family photos instead of a photo with each aunt & uncle separately. I promise you won’t regret it.
I do! I actually care deeply about it. We can work together to create the perfect timeline for your day! I will always suggest leaving 30-45 minutes for bride and groom portraits during golden hour (the hour before sunset) and then working backwards and forwards from there. I am happy to help!
A first look is when the bride & groom decide to see each other before the wedding ceremony. I will always & forever recommend this.
Of course. I always bring a backup camera and multiple lenses.
I can and do shoot weddings on my own, but I always recommend adding a second photographer to your wedding package.
Cheerful, fresh, bright, energetic, and timeless! I love rich colors, and symmetry, and laughing, and intimate moments. I would call what I like to do Illustrative Photography which is a mix between photojournalistic and traditional. I’ll place you in a spot and switch between having y’all interact and giving some specific instruction. My goal is for you to feel comfortable and confident in front of my camera!
I am always up for a fun idea however if you’ve got a checklist of “must have” photos from Pinterest, then I’m probably not who you’re looking for. I really enjoy working with clients who trust in my ability and vision.
All wedding images come with printing rights, but quality definitely makes a difference. Professional prints are more expensive, but they’re worth it. And your online gallery makes ordering professional prints just as easy as it would be anywhere else
Of course! I'd actually love to do just that! Weddings outside of the greater Phoenix area do require a travel fee.
To secure your wedding date, I require a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer of a percentage of your chosen collection.
That’s a great question! Getting along is a super important part of making great photos together. The best way to decide if we’re right for each other is to have a good, old fashioned conversation. I’d love to grab coffee you!
