+ What is your style?
Photojournalistic. Your wedding day is a significant moment in your family’s history, and I intend to capture it in a natural, spontaneous way that, years from now, will allow you to remember all the emotions and memories.
+ Where do you primarily work?
I am based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but I love to travel and will work anywhere!
+ How will you approach my wedding day?
I believe in being well-dressed (bow ties are cool!), friendly, and most importantly, invisible to you. I capture all the best moments, big and small, as the day unfolds, but doing my job right also involves you and your guests barely realizing that I’m present.
+ Will my images look like everything was photographed in the middle of the afternoon?
Not unless you get married in the middle of the afternoon! Artificially bright lighting in photos would do a disservice to all the time and effort you put into the day’s details, from the venue to your decorations and uplighting. I do everything in my ability to capture the natural light and shadow of each moment.
+ How many images do you deliver for a typical wedding?
If you choose a package that includes digital files, you can expect approximately 650+ images. I put no set number on the amount I release because there are many varying factors (such as length of day, number of photographers, etc.) that affect it.
+ Should we meet in person before we book?
I highly recommend meeting all couples before the wedding day. If you live far away, or just have an odd schedule, Skype or Facetime are great ways to interact.
+ My parents want formals, but I want more casual images — can you do both?
No worries, both styles are equally important for me to capture! We will figure out the best time to take family formals, and then we’ll do a session with and/or without your bridal party. These sessions are very efficient, and I get you back to your wedding as quickly as possible.
+ Do you have insurance?
Absolutely, and I can provide proof for any venue that requires it.
+ Do you include a wedding album?
My initial wedding package includes an album, because I feel so strongly that everyone should have an album to remember their wedding day. If you wish to print parent albums too, I also offer them.
+ Do I get an online gallery?
Of Course! Every couple gets a private online gallery that can be shared with family and friends. If you want it open to the world to see, just give me the word and everyone can see how amazing your wedding day was!
+ Do you have an assistant/second photographer with you?
I have an assistant with me at almost every wedding who helps me manage my equipment, timeline, and overall flow of the day. I generally shoot weddings alone, but if your wedding has over 200 guests, I would recommend selecting an additional photographer as part of your wedding package.
One of my many passions in life is traveling, and when I can blend travel and photography together, I am even happier than you can even imagine. Depending on distance, I will figure out any travel expenses (transportation, lodging, etc.), and add them into your booking cost.
