FAQ

Event Photography Questions

What’s your photographic style?

I like to think of myself as a documentarian. My style is mix of documenting details that make your event unique, the traditional group photos, and capturing those candids that no one could plan for.

What companies have you worked for?

I've worked with many companies including: People For The American Way, Small Business Majority, Executive Leadership Council, The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, United States Student Association, Williams College, ARS Technica, Macy's, Education Pioneers, and The Achievement Network. 

What is your payment schedule?

I take a 50% retainer and require a signed contract. This secures your date and the balance will be due not he day of your event.

Do you have liability insurance?

Absolutely! Some venues actually require the photographer to have it.

Do I get the hi-resolution photos?

Yes! All of my event photography contracts include a USB flash drive with all your photos in hi-resolution.

How soon will i receive my photos are the wedding?

It usually takes around 5-10 business days before your photographs are ready. We will send you an email with a link to your gallery the minute they are ready. We also offer 24 hour turnaround time for those that need their photos quickly. Please let us know and we can create a custom quote for you.

Do you do destination events?

Absolutely! I love to travel and it's one of my favorite parts of this job. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to Indonesia, Puerto Rico, Ghana, Jamaica, the Bahamas and all over the US. 

What are your travel expenses and how is that arranged?

I charge what it costs to make the trip and nothing more. I make my own arrangements including booking my flight, hotel and transportation if needed. If your event is being hosted at a particular hotel or resort you are more than welcome to make the arrangements for me. 

What is an online proof gallery?

This is a password protected website that showcases all your finished event images. You can share this with anyone. They can even buy individual prints from here. 

What if we have to cancel the event?

Upon booking our services we collect a 50% retainer with the remaining balance due on the day of. Should you need to cancel your event the initial payment would be forfeited.
