Frequently Asked Questions
What style of photography do you do?
I shoot mostly in a journalistic style, but do not limit my work to just that. There is always a time and place for beautiful, non-traditional, casual style poses with a little direction. It’s the combination of both that give each story it’s full due.
Do you travel?
Yes! I live to travel, and am happy to capture your story wherever you may be located!
Do you work with a second photographer for weddings?
If requested, YES. There is an additional fee for a 2nd photographer.
Do you only shoot weddings?
Weddings and engagements are my passion, so I primarily do just that. However, I do professional portraits, events and commercial photography as well.
Where do you live?
Lake Mary Jane, east Orlando, Florida. My office is located in Longwood, FL, just north of Orlando.
How long does it take to get our products and images?
Images are normally delivered within 4-6 weeks after a wedding is completed. Sometimes it’s faster depending on the size of the event or how busy the season is. Though I limit the number of weddings I do each year there are certain times that I am heavily booked, which can slow the turn-around time just a bit. If that’s the case, I will let you know.
Do we get the RAW, unedited images?
No. Great care and emphasis is placed into editing images in my style, and therefore representing my work for you. To ask for the RAW images is akin to asking a painter to give you their work before it is completed. No bueno.
Do you come to rehearsal?
If requested, I am available to cover your rehearsal/rehearsal dinner as well. This would be an upgrade addition to your collection package.
What is the online gallery?
The online gallery is a private, password protected viewing/downloading gallery where all of your wedding images will be placed online for you, your family and friends to view. My online galleries have a 10 year life span, and from which you can download your entire wedding images collection straight to your computer or smart phone. A phone app is included as well so you can view your images wherever you go, whenever you like. Social Media sharing is also included with your phone app. Your online gallery is a secure shopping cart as well – which allows those with access to order prints. To share your gallery, all you have to do is provide the password and link to anyone who you want to be able to view the images.
How many pictures can we expect?
For weddings, you can expect 600+ images. An exact number cannot be determined as each event is dependent on the amount of time we are with you. Factors such as time on site, size of the event, rehearsal coverage, etc. come into play. Rest assured that 600(+) images is plenty to cover your entire wedding day in great detail…and I usually over deliver…A LOT.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use top-shelf, professional Sony equipment with extensive back-up. I have the best cameras going, but it’s the eye that counts!
What is your payment schedule for WEDDING photography?
I require 50% deposit at the time of booking your photography date. The remainder is due 3 weeks prior to your actual wedding date.
If we have to cancel the wedding, can we have our deposit back?
No. Once your date is booked, I hold that date exclusively for you. This means all other requests are turned away. If you have to cancel and I manage to book another wedding for that specific date, I will refund your deposit then.
What is your payment schedule for PORTRAIT photography?
I require all fees paid at the time of the photography session.
