I don’t! I deliver fully edited and high resolution JPEGs. I carefully edit each wedding and deliver photos that way.
That’s no problem for me! My camera is able to handle low light and as much as I love natural light, I always have multiple flashes ready to go.
I deliver 50 to 100 photos per hour. If you book a 5 hour wedding, you will receive between 500-600 photos. If you book a 10 hour wedding, you will receive 900-1000 photos.
Your venue should have a back up plan! As for me, I’m ready for your day – rain or shine! Rainy days can give us romantic and soft lighting so that would be something I would positively remind my couples. Portrait sessions should be rescheduled if the rain is heavy with thunderstorms. I offer one free re-schedule date.
Yes, I do! I can provide a certificate of insurance if the venue requires it.
This is very important! I shoot with a “dual slot” camera. This means while I’m photographing a wedding, the photos are backed up to another SD card in the camera. The first thing I do when I get home is back up the photos to an external hard drive. I also back up the photos to the cloud. I’m a photo hoarder and can’t delete anything. I will always have your photos!
No! I’m very vocal about my beliefs as a body positive photographer. I’ll only remove some acne, unwanted scars, and/or bruises. This is discussed in all of my questionnaires and my clients are able to choose: super light editing or no editing at all. I believe my clients are beautiful the way they are and I want them to feel that safe space in their gallery.
I’ve heard those separate terms describing photographers for many years. I’ve been doing photography since 2013. I’m firm with my editing and photography after years of education. I’m neither! I know what to do with lighting whether it’s bright, dark, gloomy, or partly cloudy. Every wedding is unique but my work is consistent enough to show what my style is.
I do my best to deliver sneak peeks the day after. If I have another job or unable to do within 24 hours, you’ll absolutely receive the photos no later than 3 to 5 days after your special day! If I’m traveling over 2 hours to your wedding, it will take 5 to 7 days to receive your sneak peeks. The full gallery is typically delivered 8 to 10 weeks. It may take up to 12 weeks during the fall season (September to November) as it’s the most popular season for weddings and portraits.
Yes, absolutely! I believe this is the right way to do if you’re unsure who to pick as your wedding photographer. Each wedding is unique and it’s important the couple loves their photographer’s work.
