Find answers to the most common questions about our services and web site here.
- How far in advance do I need to book my wedding with you?
The earlier the better. I prefer to have a month's notice in order to have time to meet the couple, see the venue, and plan for the big day including any special equipment or personnel needed. I will of course try to accommodate requests with shorter time frames, but may already be booked.
- What information do you need from me before the big day?
A 'must-have' shot list, an itinerary of the day, and directions to the venue(s) at a minimum. Ideally we'll sit down at our pre-wedding consult to cover in-depth all of those small details that will make your wedding photography successful.
- What type of equipment do you use?
Canon DSLRs - 5dMKIII as my main body with a 7D Mark II as backup. as needed.
- Do you shoot destination weddings?
Yes, with a minimum of 2 months advance notice, we can be available for up to 7 days. If your timeframe is longer than that, we'll need a minimum of 3 months notice and need to discuss the dates you have in mind.
Please note that for destination weddings, travel, lodging, and meals for the photographer and any assistants required are covered by the client in addition to daily fees. Daily fees will be negotiated based on your requirements for the destination wedding.
- Can you provide references to past weddings you've shot?
Yes, on request. You're also welcome to browse our Weddings and Events gallery here on our site to see what styles of photography we've shot.
