Q : WHAT MAKES YOUR WORK DIFFERENT FROM OTHER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS’ WORK?

A : I take your photos in private and relaxed settings and try to use natural lighting as often as possible. I make your shoot fun and memorable while making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. My shooting and editing style is romantic and timeless with a fine art aesthetic so that you will enjoy your photos for a lifetime.

 

Q : WILL WE GET THE PRINT RELEASE TO OUR PHOTOS AFTER OUR WEDDING?

A : Yes! Once you receive your images, you will also get a full print release.

Q : HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE THERE AT OUR WEDDING?

A : All of my wedding packages include two photographers. Having two photographers is key to capturing all accepts of your wedding day from several different views. 

 

Q : HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL WE RECIVE? 

A : I typically deliver 50-75 images per hour of coverage. For example, if you booked me for 8 hours you could expect to receive anywhere from 400 - 600 high resolution, carefully edited digital files from your wedding day.

 

Q : DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH ELOPEMENTS?

A : Of course! I love traveling for weddings so no matter if you are planning an exotic elopement or a local small wedding send me an email about your elopement plans so we can see what best fits your needs. Elopement packages start at $1000 for two hours of coverage. 

Q : DO YOU GIVE RAW FILES?

A : I do not give my clients raw / unedited images simply because its not a true representation of my work. I spend a great deal of time during the editing process to ensure you receive the highest quality images which includes high resolution carefully edited photos. 

Q : HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO YOU BOOK WEDDINGS?

A : I have booked weddings a year or more in advance, but the average client books me with in  6 to 8 months prior to their wedding. It all depends on your wedding date and my availability. I suggest contacting me as soon as you know your wedding day to inquire about my availability.  All weddings require a wedding contract in order for booking. 50% of the wedding package price is due at the signing of the contract and is a NON REFUNDABLE RETAINER, the remaining balance is due 30 days before the wedding. 

Q: DO YOU TRAVEL FOR DESTINATION WEDDINGS?

A: Absoultly! I love destination weddings and have been lucky enough to travel to some amazing places to shoot elopements and weddings. Although I am based out of Tampa, Florida I often travel all over the states of Florida and Georgia to shoot weddings and elopements. I am often in Clearwater, Sarasota, St Petersburg, Fort Myers, Naples and Jekyll Island, GA. So if you are planning a wedding outside of Florida or Georgia areas send me more information on your travel plans, and I can create a custom wedding collection to suit your needs.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO PHOTOGRAPH AT WEDDINGS?

A: There are so many things I love about being a wedding photographer, I honestly love my job. However, I have to say my favorite part of shooting weddings is two part; I love photographing the details, such as your rings, shoes, flowers, and invitation suite, and I really get excited when I'm shooting your bride and groom portraits. Both of those sets of photos is when I get to really let my creativity flow freely and seeing two people that are in love and making a commitment to each other makes my heart swell with joy and happiness!

That way on the day of your photoshoot we are more aquatinted and have a clear and organized plan. Once we get to the first location, we’ll take a few test shots to get you comfortable in front of the camera. If you bring along any props we will take a little extra time to photograph these items as well.
