FAQ

Wedding 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 wedding unique, the traditional group photos, and capturing those candids that no one could plan for. I believe all those elements are what make each wedding day so special.

Why should we hire you?

I really stress the importance of finding a photographer that you both have an emotional connection to their work and feel comfortable with. If you feel that with my work, that is awesome! I would love to talk to you.

What is your payment schedule?

I take a 30% retainer and require a signed contract. This secures your date and the balance will be due 6 weeks before your wedding date.

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 wedding packages 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 6-8 weeks before your photographs are ready. We will send you an email with a link to your gallery the minute they are ready.

Your wedding/engagement will be posted within 2-3 weeks and a few teasers emailed to you within a week just to keep you excited.

Do you do destination weddings?

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.

How many images will we get?

Usually 40 -60 photos from your engagement session and 400-800 images from your wedding day. 

What is an online proof gallery?

This is a password protected website that showcases all your finished wedding images. You can share this with your friends and family, they can even buy individual prints from here.

What’s the next step?

If this all sounds good to you, let’s connect! I would love to set up a consultation with you. I meet with clients in the D.C. area on a limited basis and offer FaceTime/Skype or phone consults for any other areas. Just let me know what works best for your schedule. Expect to go over all of your wedding plans thus far. I’ll speak with you about my aesthetic and we can talk about your inspiration and ideas. I will also go over what to expect on your wedding day regarding photography and we can discuss investment options.

Weddings are booked with a signed contract and a 30% photography retainer on a first come first serve basis.
