How do you describe your shooting style?
I love candid moments and real emotions between the wonderful people I get to photography. In our session I focus on the interactions of you and try to give you as much space as possible, but of course also guide you if necessary. Standing in front of the camera is not an everyday occurrence, so I want you to be as comfortable as possible.
Do you charge for travel?
I want to keep it simple for you, so for most sessions there are no travel fees. In most cases for wedding packages travel costs are included, for smaller session I normally charge travel fee if our travel time exceeds 30 miles (one way). I will make sure that in case there would be costs due to travelling, that I point it out right away so you consider it in your budgeting.
Which form of payments do accept?
For easy payment of your deposit and package I offer many options. Such as Cash, Check, Venmo, Zelle, CashApp, Credit Card (All major credit and debit cards are accepted. Fee apply)
We would like to keep our photos private, so can you not post them on your website or social media?
I definitely want to respect your privacy as much as possible and as such will agree not to post your names when posting online or on my website if you'd like. If you would like to add further privacy than this, I offer for purchase what's called an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) for $350. This will make it so that I will not post or share any of your photos, ever, anywhere. As a photographer I have to be able to show current examples of my work to continue to do business (and attract potential clients like yourself), so, if a couple wants to guarantee I don't show any photos, which could cause me to lose business, I must charge for this option.
What happens if we go over the contracted amount of time?
I understand that not everything goes as planned during a wedding. I never pack up before the contracted time, and moreover, I'm not leaving on the dot when the contracted time is up. Instead, I will ask you at the end of your contracted time whether or not you would like to extend. If you would like me to stay, I will charge the rates specified in your contract rounded to the closest 30-minute increment.
What happens if we are running late to our shoot? Will you extend the shooting time?
If a client is late I will do my best in the time that is remaining to get everything we need, If you want to extend the session time, we can negotiate it.
Do you do destination weddings? What additional fees are associated with destination weddings?
Yes, I serve clients all around the world. Destination wedding photography packages include the cost of travel and reasonable accommodations as: baggage fees, hotel accommodations (typically 2 nights but dependent on the length of the event), rental car if needed, vendor meals for the day of the event(s). Contact me for any other questions.
Does your studio do headshots, individual portraits, family portraits, commercial photography, or other types of photography?
Yes, I have experience in many fields of photography. Feel free to contact me.
If we cancel our booking will we receive our deposit back?
In case you cancel you will not receive your deposit back. This covers any loss in the form of lost bookings and eventual cost already arisen before the actual session. However, I understand that unforeseen events can happen, so I try to work on alternatives if possible – e.g. find a new date for a session.
