I have been complimented by my experience with film that allows me to use 35mm + 120mm film stocks during the day as add ons - These deliver that nostalgic, and very different feel from emulated digitals [ the real sense in photography] which creates memories similar to the ones in generations past.

At the same time, engagement sessions are a perfect opportunity to capture beautiful images of you two while celebrating a wonderful time in your lives.

I cannot wait to schedule & style yours!

How many images are delivered in a typical day?

Knowing that no relationship/wedding day is one and/ot the same, I strive to document all the in-between details of your day that are easy to miss. Honestly, keeping in mind that when shooting a wedding, I will be on task documenting your day, we must consider all variables, i.e. size of wedding parties, number of guests, time of coverage & your timeline, along with event type, sites of coverage, celebration periods, all post-ceremony formal photographs and so on... These are the dynamics that will dictate the volume of images from your day. And, although every wedding is unique, in my personal experience on average, the team and I shoot an average of 75-100 images/[per hour That said, these numbers may vary and as I mentioned, these will depend on the dynamics of the wedding day.

After the Wedding Day, How are Images Delivered? Your High-Resolution images will uploaded to a web-based platform. The LINK is extremely convenient and user-friendly. This LINK is sent along with step-by-step instructions to assist you with the process to prompt the delivery of your collection's products.

You will be able to love your images, share them with loved ones, and even order images should anyone wish to purchase boutique high-end products from my studio with a special pricing incentive.

Are all images included in the LINK?

Of Course! They are your images, right?

How long will we have access to our photos once they are delivered?

Once you receive a link with your gallery attached, you will have access to your photos for 6-12 months from the delivery date. [ depending on your collection chosen]

I always recommend that my clients save and back up your photos to three different locations. Because you can never be too careful, think: USB first, hard drive second, and computer last.

We are ready to Book! Now, what's next? (The Retainer, The Payment Schedule, The Contract)

The contract is drawn and sent electronically for you to review, initial, and sign. Although accepting all major credit cards - all charges paid via CC or ACH which may carry a transaction fee adjustment - Venmo [between friends] or Zelle are most popular with my clients these days.

How about seeing a full wedding gallery?

I believe that when considering making such an investment in professional wedding photography, you must be able to see real work! Why not? Because when you can view a real wedding, it will reveal a more in-depth of the photographic process during a real wedding day, it will allow you to make a better choice for your investment. Just keep in mind not all weddings are the same. And my approach is very personal. I can certainly show you a full wedding from my client-released catalog - These carry the moments, details, and meaning in their day...

Also, I welcome you to check out the many beautiful stories in the JOURNAL this is a much quicker view of the stories behind my work on a real wedding day!

How are my images curated?

After some color correction, all the retouching is handled by me.

My philosophy is simple: "I shot it, I was there with you, therefore I will edit them."

I know that my clients appreciate their images being handled by someone they trust and who was there with them instead of some random person who doesn't know what details need to be taken care of. I am so very happy and proud to devote the time to getting to know you both because I want to make sure that I can tell the story the way it is meant to be - nothing less, nothing more!

After our wedding day, when can we expect our digital proofs? The good news is that depending on the collection chosen, you will be receiving a link within 24hrs [or less] with highlights along with downloads of your day (75+ images )

I know that this makes the wait a bit less anxious, and you'll get to share beautiful professional images of the day immediately. Honestly, most oftentimes. the same day! Within 48hrs you will see your wedding featured in our Journal - I will text you, and you can share the day with loved ones [perhaps could not make it to the wedding] rapidly.

Since I process all my work in-house - I will make sure that your images are post-processed and curated as soon as possible. To accomplish this, I firmly allow myself time to make sure all is in its right standards before sending it to you - I believe that "Fast sometimes isn't better"

I strive to provide realistic time and depending on the product these can vary. While I aim to deliver your images as soon as it is possible, my average turnaround for your digital proofing album is 45-60 working days time-frame on average. ** Sometimes this may be in less time, depending on the season's schedule.

Very rarely, some delivery times may be impacted by scheduled travel or workload during wedding season and other booked summer commissions - Honestly, I work wholeheartedly to deliver them promptly...

My work continues even after your actual wedding day comes to an end - I am as excited as you are for you all to have them!
