How would you describe your style?
I describe myself as documentary lifestyle photographer. I'm all about provoking organic emotion and candidly capturing unique photos of our subjects. Please keep mind that I go for subtle color tones. My greens and oranges are a bit darker. If you're looking for a photograph with a flash and orange, colorful sunset in the background, really blue ocean and bright green trees I may not be your guy.
How long does it take for us to receive our photos?
My turnaround time is in 6-12 weeks, but I tend to post spoilers on my Instagram page. I’ll let you know when they’re good and ready.
Do I get a disc of all the high-res edited photos?
No way! You'll get a link for your private online gallery where you can download all the high res photos right your computer and purchase professional prints if you desire.
How long do you spend on formal family photos at weddings?
I like to spend about 15 minutes taking a few quick family photos. I like to be as time efficient with those as possible so you can enjoy your day. If you want a picture with your third cousin once-removed, we can grab that at the reception.
What is a first look and should we do one?
A first look is a wedding life-saver. It just is. Trust me.
Can I upload my wedding photos to Facebook or share the ones you post?
Certainly! You can use any of your photos as long as you promise not to crop or alter them in any way.
What's in your camera bag?
I use all full frame DSLR Nikon cameras. Prime and zoom lenses but If you want to get more technical let me know and I can send you a full gear list.
Can I have all of the unedited photos you took at our wedding?
No sir! You'll receive all of the photos that I took of your day, less any blinking, lame faces, or safety shots we may have taken. We fancy our editing style and never deliver any images that are incomplete.
How many wedding photos will I get?
I normally deliver between 60 and 100 images per hour of coverage. I love to spoil my clients, though, so it's likely you'll receive way more.
Do you do selective coloring / sepia on your photos?
Not since 2002.
Do you have any advice from a Photographer's perspective for our wedding day?
Splurge on an awesome (tidy) hotel room or a unique (tidy) location for your getting ready photos, do a first look, keep lighting as natural as possible by utilizing windows and outdoor locations, don't let your DJ talk you into colored mood lighting at your reception, outdoor receptions are best for natural light photographers, have your ceremony close to sunset if you're getting married outside, splurge on the photographer and videographer of your dreams (your photos and videos will outlive your cake and flowers), and the great outdoors will always make for prettier backdrops than indoor locations.
