What is included in your wedding packages?
All weddings I shoot come with an engagement session and the final, edited images delivered in a password protected online gallery. This gallery allows you to download all images, order your own professional prints, and share your link with friends & family. The rest depends on the Wedding Package you select.
What if I’ve already taken my engagement photos?
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. However, if you’d like, I can offer a print credit in exchange for engagement photos.
How long will it take to get the photos after my wedding day?
You can generally expect your photos back in about 4-6 weeks.
How many images will I receive?
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 between 400-600 images.
How much time do you recommend setting aside for portraits on my wedding day?
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.
What’s a first look?
A first look is when the bride & groom decide to see each other before the wedding ceremony. I will always & forever recommend this. For more information, give this article a read.
Do you have backup equipment?
Of course. I always bring a backup camera and multiple lenses.
Are you the only photographer?
I can and do shoot many weddings on my own, but I always recommend adding a second photographer to your wedding package.
Can I send you my Pinterest board with all the shots I’d like you to take?
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. Copying someone else’s creative vision isn’t really my thing.
Can we print images on our own?
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.
Do you travel?
Of course! Weddings outside of the greater Cleveland area do require a travel fee.
How do I book you?
To secure your wedding date, I require a signed contract and a 50% deposit.
How do I know we’re the right fit?
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 (and by coffee, I mean tea) with you! But in the meantime, you can visit this page to find out a little more about me & my style.
