weddings FAQ

How many hours are included?

I offer coverage beginning at 8 hours. Full day wedding photography is up to 12 hours.

Do you have a second photographer?

Yes! I always photograph with a second photographer. It makes the day go more smoothly, because we can be in two places at once.

How many photos will I receive?

I guarantee a minimum of 500 photos, however it averages between 600-800 depending on each wedding.

Do I get copyrights to the photos?

You will receive a print release, which will allow you to print your photos where you’d like, if you choose not to go through my professional printing company.

I hate having my photo taken and am nervous about looking good in my wedding photos. Can we do non-posed photos?

I understand. I always get some natural unposed photos throughout the day and during your couple portraits. However, I have studied posing and can make you look fantastic with a few simple steps, and you’ll begin to feel like a natural in front of the camera. Don’t worry. I will guide you every step of the way.

Yes. I require a signed contract and a $1000 non-refundable retainer fee to book your wedding.
