Call, text, email, message or reach me via my contact form along with your wedding date and venue. If possible, I would like to meet you both in person so you can get to know your future photographer and can ask me everything you need. Once you've decided to choose me as your photographer, I will send a contract for you to sign and return with a deposit.
Absolutely! In fact, we strongly recommend it. If possible we will set up an in-person meeting, or we can set up a Skype webcam chat at a time that is convenient for you.
Once you have decided you want to hire me, you secure your wedding date with a signed contract and a non-refundable deposit of 50% of total price based on package. (You can always add on to your packages.) The remaining balance can be split into one or two payments before wedding day. Balance is due prior to of day of wedding.
I require a initial 50% non-refundable retainer/deposit along with the contract and the remaining balance due before or on wedding day.
I am running a business and I need to protect my time, money and livelihood. Short answer is no. However, there are always exceptions and the law requires reasonable mitigation.
Typically 6-12 months out once you have date and venue secured, but contact me for availability if it's short notice.
Absolutely…All my wedding packages include an assistant EXCEPT for the 4 hour Silver package.
Absolutely!! You hired me. I am the lead shooter, but I have incredible assistants that help out.
I am located in Gilbert, AZ and YES, I do and would love to travel.
This is mostly up to you, but usually a couple of hours before the ceremony or immediately following the ceremony. Shooting before the ceremony allows you and the wedding party a chance to enjoy the cocktail hour and mingle with your guests. Shooting after the ceremony could allow you to take advantage of the setting sun and its softer light.
I hate making people wait, but life happens. I will post teasers (if you consent) but plan on 2-3 weeks for turn around time.
That's not my jam. I am a Professional Photographer, BUT I have excellent videographers I work closely with.
Yes. I offer custom-designed 12 x 12 hardbound coffee-table photo books along with a selection of other a la carte products.
I offer you a chance to pick a selection of photos that you must have in the album. This can be anywhere from 0 to the entire album. However, I do advise that you let me choose the majority of the photos for the album since I will use my best judgment to select the best and more relevant photos to tell the story of your wedding day. One of the top reasons, couples often times say they haven't ordered the albums from their photographers is because they haven't gotten around to choosing the pictures for the album.
Personally, I think that if you're going to spend thousands on wedding photography, you should walk away from it with something tangible to display your investment. We know all too well how easy it is for memory cards and hard drives of photos to sit in drawers or boxes, waiting to be printed off, and we don't want your wedding photos to suffer that same fate. However we will never pressure you into buying something you don't want.
I certainly hope so. I generally will post about every shoot on my blog and possibly my portfolio.
