Do you require a retainer fee?
Yes, I require a 20% retainer to offically secure your wedding date. This is applied to the total amount due.
How would you describe your style?
How long have you been shooting weddings?
I shot my first wedding for a friend in June of 2015.
Where are you based? How far do you travel for weddings?
I am based currently in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The majority of my bookings are based in central PA, and Philadelphia where I previously lived. I travel all over Pennsylvania for weddings. I am also open to elopements and out of state weddings.
How many photos will we recieve?
For engagement sessions, at least 100. For weddings, it depends on how long your day goes and how many events are happening, but I average between 800-1000. You’ll receive each image in color as well as some favorites in black and white.
I would love to work with you- how do we officially book?
I'm always flattered by inquiries. However it is so important to me that potential clients make the time to review my style and approach before moving forward to make sure we are a good match. I'm always happy to answer any questions before the booking process and am open to communication via email, text, or even a phone call if you'd prefer.
What gear do you shoot with?
Ian and I shoot on full frame canon bodies. I am continuously upgrading my gear/lenses. I also use Canon speedlites to achieve on/off camera flash photography.
What kind of photography sessions do you offer?
I currently offer wedding, engagement, bridal, and anniversary sessions. I also offer family sessions around my wedding schedule.
Do you offer payment plans?
To book a wedding date, I require a signed contract and payment of the 20% non-refundable retainer and any travel fees, with the remaining amount due one month prior to the wedding day. I would be happy to provide you with a payment plan to make as many payments as necessary prior to the due date.
Do you have insurance and back up gear?
Yes! I can provide proof of insurance to any venue. We also carry backup cameras and SD cards/batteries on wedding days.
How long does it take to receive my photos?
I typically tell couples editing can take anywhere between 4-12 weeks depending on the time of year and how busy I am. May/June and September are typically the busiest. I always send my couples a preview a few days after the wedding and I upload to the live gallery as I edit- that way you have the option of viewing your gallery as I edit, or waiting until editing is completed to view them all at once.
Do you have a second shooter?
Yes! My significant other, Ian is my second. We work closely as a couple to shoot weddings which has been so much fun over the years. I can say he plays a crucial role in capturing unique alternative angles. Learn more about us here
