How much experience do you have and how many weddings do you book per year?
I have over eight years of experience as a professional photographer and have mainly worked as a second shooter and portrait photographer. I'm taking the leap this year to advertise for my own weddings given I've crafted my own style over the years and love shooting weddings! I hope to shoot 5-8 weddings in 2019 and am particular about finding a good fit with the couple I work with given the small number I'm looking to book.
What do you deliver after a wedding and how long can be expect to wait? Can you give us the originals?
Since I only book a few wedding each year, I make sure to clear my week following a shoot to dive into editing, color correction, and post-processing! I enjoy the editing process almost just as much as I enjoy shooting. As such, you can expect to see all of your pictures 2 weeks after the wedding. I deliver 600-700 of my best shots. I do not give clients RAW images as I add my artistic brand to each image I deliver.
What equipment do you use?
I currently shoot with two professional camera bodies: Nikon D600 and D750. I use prime lenses and my favorites are the 35mm 1.4, 50mm 1.4, and 85mm 1.8. I use on camera flash and have one SB 700 AF and one SB 900 AF speedlight that both work well in low light or night time settings. Simple, light weight, and no complaints!
How would you describe your work and style?
Honest, emotional, artistic, and candid. I love spur of the moment and unexpected shots – definitely more photojournalistic than posed! Though I do focus on getting many great shots of the couple on a wedding day, I also love capturing guests, family members, and details and most people who choose to work with me want an equal focus on various aspects of their day. You can expect me to be flexible and respectful of your requests and preferences. I can be totally hands off or give you direct guidance.
Do you use second shooters?
Since I mostly book small and intimate weddings, I generally shoot alone unless you request an additional eye. We can discuss adding a second shooter to your package if you'd like a second set of eyes during certain parts of the day.
Do you have insurance and back up gear?
Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! Travel + photography wouldn’t be work more than an ideal vacation.
