I'm located in Charleston, South Carolina but I frequently travel for weddings and other photoshoots. I also do work out of South Florida and New York. I'm always passport ready and love to travel so please feel free to reach out about any destination weddings!
2. What is your photographic style?
My style is candid, authentic with a touch of light and airy. It can be described as photojournalistic, however I am happy to help pose and style whenever necessary.
3. What camera equipment do you use and do you have backup gear?
I use professional grade Canon bodies with a variety of lenses as well as external lighting equipment. I have a backup camera, batteries, lenses and flashes so I am prepared for whatever could happen.
4. Do you offer albums?
Yes! I offer a variety of albums, prints, canvases, keepsake boxes of loose prints and more. Each album is custom designed to be unique to you and printed on the finest quality paper so you can enjoy for generations!
5. How long until we receive our photos?
I have a guaranteed delivery time of 8-10 weeks for wedding photos, however it's usually sooner! I strive to get them done as soon as possible. All images will be delivered through an online gallery. Albums may take longer.
6. Do you work with a second photographer?
I frequently work with a second photographer or assistant and it can be super beneficial on your wedding day. I cannot physically be in two places at once, so by having a second photographer it does just that. It will increase the chances that all the moments will be captured and will also offer some variety to your photos. The timeline will run smoother as well.
7. Should we have an engagement session?
Absolutely! Not only will you get gorgeous images and create some fun memories together, but you will also have a chance to meet me, see me in action and feel more comfortable for your big day. They are a great opportunity for us to get to know each other better. I also offer discounted engagement sessions when booked with a wedding package.
8. We love your work! How do we book our date?
Your date is officially booked once I have a signed contract and a 20% non-refundable retainer. Please understand I cannot hold a date through email inquiry only as I receive quite a few for each particular date during the wedding season. They are booked on a first come first serve basis.
9. Do you book more than one wedding in a day?
No. My couple's wedding has my complete focus and attention for the entirety of the day regardless of the amount of hours booked.
10. Do you photograph large/small/Jewish/Greek/Indian/Christian/Gay/Non-religious/ Weddings?
Absolutely! I photograph weddings of all kinds and love to do so.
11. Do you photograph quincineras, bar/bat mitzvahs, corperate events?
I do! I photograph all sorts of special events and would love to take part in yours. Custom packages are available for whatever your needs may be.
12. How many hours of coverage will we need?
Every wedding is extremely unique with planning and timing, therefore I do offer a great package with unlimited time. My most frequent booking time is between 6-8 hours. I always insist to book for a little more time than necessary, so nobody feels rushed.
13. We love your work but what if you're out of our budget?
Just talk to me! I don't like turning away clients because of cost and if you are transparent about your budget, I can try to make it work with various customizations to my packages. I know how important budgets are and there is so much to consider when planning a wedding. Just keep in mind that these are memories and moments you are investing in, not just more stuff!
14. Do we meet before the big day?
We definitely can but it is not a requirement for a smoothly running day. I am happy to meet for coffee, Skype or have a phone call at any time! I can also be directed towards your planner for the more detailed stuff. Engagement sessions are also a fantastic way to meet before the big day and get to know each other.
15. Do I need to provide vendor meals?
Vendor meals are not required, but strongly encouraged. If they are not provided, my team will need to have around an hour break to grab a meal/coffee!
16. Do you shoot raw or jpeg?
I shoot all weddings in RAW format. Other shoots vary depending on the project and how I will be editing.
17. What editing programs do you use?
I use Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom for all of my editing needs.
18. Do you offer discounts?
I do not offer discounts however I do run promotions from time to time. Off season and weekday pricing is also available upon request. I also offer various mini sessions throughout the year for portraits.
