FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DID YOU LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY?
I learned photography back in high school when I took a photojournalism class. I immediately fell in love with the whole process. From figuring out what image to capture based on assignments, to framing the image, and then to post processing (which for me was developing since I learned on film).
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE?
Classic, elegant, and clean. Yes, clean :) I love creating images with clean composition and am a big believer in making sure my subjects are always the main focus.
HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU SHOOT AT A WEDDING?
Each wedding varies, but typically between 50-200 images for every hour of coverage.
WILL I RECEIVE ALL IMAGES FROM MY WEDDING DAY?
Yes! After the wedding I go through and delete any images where eyes are closed and things like that, but you will get all the images from the wedding day in b&w and color. The images are always high-resolution digital files.
WHAT IS YOUR GEAR?
Canon 5d Mark III
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM

IF MY EVENT LASTS LONGER THAN EXPECTED, WILL YOU STAY? IS THERE AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE?
Before I leave, I always make sure to ask if you would like me to stay longer. Sometimes the fun just keeps on going and you need additional hours! I charge an hourly rate if you decide you need me to capture more of your event.
HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD WE SET ASIDE FOR PORTRAITS ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
Ideally 30 minutes for couple portraits, 20 minutes for wedding party photos, and 20 minutes for family photos.
DO YOU EDIT/RETOUCH YOUR PHOTOS?
My editing style is just like my photography style; classic, elegant, and clean. I focus more on the image itself, instead of focusing on what I can do to edit it. I do get rid of blemishes, threads that are out of place, and things like objects in the background that distract from the image.
