FAQ’s

My Most Frequently Asked Questions

I love your pictures! What’s your style?

Artistic documentary photos with some portraiture and still-life photography. A wedding day encompasses so much! But most importantly your wedding photos must be timeless. I SERIOUSLY don’t like trendy or overly stylized wedding photos.

Will you be our photographer or a substitute?

To ensure my signature style and calm presence, I don’t use substitutes. No one else can interact with you and your guests like me. No one else can feel, experience, and photograph your wedding like me. My assistant helps me with my equipment, lighting gear, etc so I can focus on photographing your once-in-a-lifetime event. If you’re expecting more than 250 guests, I’d suggest adding a second photographer to your package.

What happens if you get sick?

Since starting in 2004, I’ve never missed a wedding. I suppose the only reason I might would be for the same reasons you might miss your own wedding — like being hospitalized. I thank God I’m in good health 🙂

What equipment do you use?

I shoot with a variety of film cameras and pick 2-3 of these: Contax 645, Pentax 67, Hasselblad 501, Nikon F5, Nikon FM3a, Holga and a few other toy film cameras. And for my digital images I use Nikon professional mirrorless Z cameras and Nikon Z lenses. I bring a variety of flashes that I use on- and off-camera; light stands, reflector, sync cords, brackets, batteries, and lots of film.

Are the packages customizable?

Absolutely! Just like you as a wedding couple are unique, so are your needs. I’m happy to work with you on a wedding photography package that reflects what you want.

Why are so peaceful and calm?

Yes, I get this random question a lot! LOL 🙂 I’m a Christian, I trust God and I’m not afraid of people. I live my life as best I can with God helping me. I try not to worry or compare myself to others. I’m working on staying humble, knowing that God has FORGIVEN ME of SO, SO MUCH. I don’t try to be peaceful or calm, it just happens.

Will you shoot film at my wedding?

Yes, I love shooting film! If you like film, please let me know. I use medium format and 35mm for aesthetic and archival reasons. I shoot digitally for low light situations like indoor ceremonies and nighttime receptions. I’ll decide which is best for which part of the wedding day. Read more HERE

How many photos will I get of my wedding day?

I don’t actually count how many pictures I take. But over the years I’ve consistently delivered wedding galleries of 60-80 edited images per hour of wedding coverage. So you can expect a nine hour wedding day to yield around 700 photos.

Do you travel for weddings?

I sure do! I love to travel and I’ve been to 17 different countries. I love going to new places to experience new cultures, whether here in the states or abroad.

Do you offer custom wedding albums?

Yes, and designing custom albums is one of my favorite things to do. I’m very passionate about you having a tangible, proper record of your wedding day. There’s nothing better than an album. I offer beautiful, timeless, fine art books that my couples just cherish. Once you’ve received your gallery of images and your printed proofs, we can begin curating a set of photos for your album. I’ll handle the design while you give me feedback. After a few rounds of revisions or tweaks, you’ll sign off on the final version and I’ll order it. You’ll receive your book about three months later.

How soon will I get my wedding photos?

Your gallery of edited photos will be ready two months after your wedding day. If your package includes digital files, you’ll get those at the same time

How do we book you? And how far in advance?

It’s pretty simple. Once you’ve signed your contract and paid your deposit, you’re booked! If anyone else contacts me about your date, I’ll let them know I’m not available. The balance is due at least two weeks before your wedding day. It’s best to secure your date as soon as possible, especially if you’re getting married from April through November.
