Frequently Asked Questions

  • How would you describe your style?

    • My style is a combination of traditional and photojournalistic.  I mostly like to capture the candid moments as the day unfolds.  I like to be a fly on the wall with a camera.  However I will pose people is during the formal photos with the family and wedding party.

    • I prefer "full saturation" images with vidid colors.  No over exposed or blown out backgrounds in my images.

  • What does a typical wedding day include?

    • A typical day includes capturing the following:

      • Bride and Groom getting ready

      • Venue and decor

      • Ceremony

      • Bride and Groom photos

      • Wedding Party Photos

      • Family photos

      • Reception, including grand entrance, first dance, Father Daughter/Mother Son dance, cake cutting, speeches, garter toss, bouquet toss and guests dancing.

  • What if you're sick and can't make it to my wedding?

    • First let me say; I have never missed a wedding.  However if something were to prevent me from shooting your wedding, I have relationships with other photographers I can reach out to for help.  If for some reason I could not get a photographer to your wedding, you would be entitled to a full refund.

  • Do you use a second photographer?

    • My standard pricing does not include a second photographer however; I can provide one for an additional charge.

  • How may photos will I receive?

    • That is a really hard question to answer.  It depends on several factors including the size of your wedding, how many hours of coverage and the amount of detail.  Generally speaking, I deliver between 40-60 images per hour of shooting.  In other words, for a full 8 hour day, you can expect between 300-500 images. 
    • I've had wedding where I delivered 300 images and I've had weddings where I delivered 1200.  It just really depends.  But no matter how many images you receive, every important detail of your wedding day will be captured.
  • Will all my images be edited?
    • Yes.  During your day, I will capture the "Raw" images.  After your wedding, I will then take these raw images and cull them down into the final images I will deliver to you.  I remove all the out of focus shots, misfires, photos with people eyes closed and the ones that look just plain unflattering. 
    • Your final images will be color corrected to ensure all images have a similar color pallet.  They will also be cropped for the best composition and straightened.
  • What if I want my images retouched (Photoshopped)
    • Retouching is not included in the base package but can be done as an option starting at $10 per image.  Basic Retouching includes things such as removing skin blemishes, skin smoothing, body contouring and removal of background distractions.
  • What format will the images be delivered?
    • Hi resolution *.JPG format
  • Can I print my own images?
    • Yes.
  • Do you offer printing?
    • Yes, prints can be purchased from your online gallery and delivered right to your door.
  • How are my images delivered?
    • Standard delivery is via online download.  You may also purchase a USB Flash drive as an option.
  • How long does it take to receive my images?
    • 2 weeks
  • How long have you been photographing wedding?
    • I have been a wedding photographer for about 5 years.  In that time, I have shot more than 75 weddings.
  • If I have certain photos I want to recreate, will you do that?
    • Of course.  While I can't promise to recreate the images exactly, I will do my best.
  • Do you use a shot list?
    • Yes.  Before your wedding, I will ask you for a list of family members.  I will then create a shot list so nobody is missed.
  • Can we meet in person before hiring you?
    • Yes.  For local clients, we can either meet in your home or a public place.  For clients out of the area, Skype is a good option.
  • How far will you travel?
    • I have shot weddings in San Francisco, Sacramento and San Luis Obispo to name a few.  I will travel anywhere in California.  My travel fee is $0.56 per mile plus hotel fee if applicable.
  • What if we book a certain amount of time, but then find we need more?
    • No problem.  I will check in with you about 20 minutes before it's time for me to leave.  If you need me to stay, I am happy to do so.  I will bill you for the extra time after your wedding.
  • What if we decide to cancel after we book?
    • There is a 25% non-refundable deposit required to book.  Any fees paid above the 25% deposit are refundable should you decide to cancel.
  • If we decide to hire a videographer, can you work with them?
    • Yes, I've worked with Videographers at many weddings.  Whenever possible we work together to stay out of each other's shots.  However, I cannot guarantee they will not be seen in some shots.
  • What kind of equipment to you use?
    • I use professional level, full frame Nikon equipment.  I arrive for your wedding with around $10,000 worth of gear.  My standard kit includes (3) camera  bodies, (6) lenses, in addition I bring spare batteries, SD cards, lighting, modifiers and support equipment.
