FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is your photographic style?
I am a fine art wedding photographer, using both digital and film cameras to create timeless and artistic photographs with a unique stylistic appeal. I love to have fun with your family and friends on your wedding and will use that to draw out genuine, candid expressions while taking photographs, but am not afraid to step in and give some guidance to get the best looking images possible.
What sets you apart from other wedding photographers?
I strive to be more like a friend when working together rather than just another vendor. (On the day of your wedding, you’ll often spend as much time with your photographer as you will with your own family!) Your photographer's personality can have a huge impact on the overall energy and flow of the wedding. Because of this, I accept a limited number of weddings each year and try to only photograph one wedding a weekend to really focus on learning about you, your story and making sure we use that to have a great time and get great images in the process!
Why do you use film in addition to digital photography?
I love digital photography and everything it offers, but there is a true timelessness to photographing with film that is impossible to replicate with digital. A photograph shot with medium format film has an organic, three dimensional, almost painterly quality to it. Being a photographer that will photograph with digital and film cameras gives me the best of both worlds - the immediacy and advantages of using digital along with the beauty and timelessness of film.
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes. My studio and photography gear are fully insured. If your venue requires proof of liability insurance, let me know and I would be happy to provide it for them!
Can you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! I am currently based in New York but am willing to travel all over the world, especially for a wedding! Send me an email for more information regarding destination pricing.
Do you photograph with a second photographer?
I will usually bring a photojournalistic assistant to help me with lighting and other tasks (photojournalistic means they can provide a second angle on key moments, such as the first look or the first kiss), however I find that in general a second photographer is unnecessary - I will get the photographs I need to properly tell your wedding story. I do offer it as an add on option, however and we can discuss it more during our consultation!
How many photographs do you deliver?
I'm a strong believer in quality over quantity. For an 8 hour wedding, I will usually deliver between 400-600 photographs. This number may vary depending on things like travel times, hours hired, and other wedding day timeline events. On every photograph I adjust exposure, contrast, color, crop and more to align with my artistic vision.
How long does it take to receive my photographs?
I cull through and edit every photograph I take to ensure each image lives up to my brand standards. However, I also don't like to make people wait if I can help it! All photographs will be delivered within 60 days, with a typical turnaround time of no more than four weeks.
How can we learn more about rates and availability?
Because I prefer to really get to know each and every client I work with, I only accept a limited number of weddings each year and try to only photograph one wedding each weekend. I require a signed contract with a 1/3 retainer fee to reserve your wedding date.
On average, couples I work with will spend between $3,200 and $4,400. All packages include high resolution digital files on a keepsake USB drive, delivered in a hand crafted heirloom wooden box with 50 fine art highlight prints, as well as an online gallery to view and share your photographs. I also offer beautiful heirloom wedding and engagement photo albums with most of my wedding packages. Send me an email and I can give you a more comprehensive pricing guide!
