If we are booking a wedding, what is needed to secure our date?

A retainer of $500 is needed. The rest on the day of the wedding, just before I start taking pictures. Or on agreed time settled upon during contract.

Do you offer refunds?

For weddings, the retainer is non-refundable. This is due to the date being secured and all other commissions being turned down.

How do we book our date?

Contact me via email or by phone and set up a meeting with me at your convenience. Once the retainer is received, I’ll book your wedding date.

How many images will I receive?

For typical portrait sessions approx. 40-50. Depending on wedding duration and shooting time, anywhere from approx. 400 to 1000  images.

Can I print my images?

Yes! Along with your product you will receive a print release form which allows you to print any of images in any fashion you would like.

Will there be a second shooter?

I am the sole shooter unless, at the time of contract, a second shooter is included in the price.

Can guests take pictures during the wedding?

Of course! Only two things, no flash, and that they don’t inhibit my coverage of your wedding. Please no other professional photographers unless discussed and agreed upon at the time of the contract.

When will I receive my images?

A typical full-day wedding will take 4-6 weeks. A portrait session is about 2-3 weeks. Both depend on time of year and how busy the season is at the time. Please inquire at anytime to get an updated ETA of your personal product!
