WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
WHAT MAKES YOUR WORK DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS?
I strive to make photos that are a unique blend of art and photojournalism, and that are honest and timeless. Getting to know one another is essential. This way we can create photos that are a true reflection of you.
YOU CAN JUST PHOTOSHOP IT, RIGHT?
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER?
Some things completely warrant some Photoshopping. If there’s unsightly objects in the background or a little stress zit right on your forehead, I’ll take care of it. If you think it’s absolutely necessary I can do more intense retouching, but this will likely incur extra costs.
I’ve been in the photography industry for over a decade. I received my BFA in photography in 2010 and have been shooting weddings and portraits since.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE IN MY WEDDING GALLERY?
HOW LONG TO WE HAVE TO BOOK AHEAD?
Some dates and months are more popular than others, so it’s best to book as far ahead as you can. As a general rule though, about a year out is a good time.
It depends, but typically for an 8 hour day with one photographer you’ll receive around 600-700 final edited images. An 8 hour day with two photographers is around 800-900.
I NEED HELP IN THE PLANNING PROCESS, CAN I ASK YOU?
IF IT RAINS DURING OUR ENGAGMENT SESSION CAN WE RESCHEDULE?
Definitely. But if we’re getting into the 2nd or 3rd reschedule (eye-roll Pittsburgh) then we’re going to accept it, be in the moment and rock that rain ya’ll.
Absolutely. Believe it or not I play a pretty big part in your planning process. From timelines to location scouting, I’m there for you. After all, we’re together all day and I’m happy to make sure things run smoothly so you don’t have to.
WHAT DOES DIGITAL DOWNLOAD MEAN?
CAN I GET THE RAW FILES?
Nope. I’m pretty strict on this for a number of reasons. Promise, you don’t want to mess around with giant files that really look nothing like to final images I’m going to deliver to you.
All your beautiful photos will go into an online gallery once everything gets a full edit. From your online gallery you download all your photos directly to your hard drive or storage of choice. Easy peasy.
WHAT HAPPEN IF IT RAINS ON THE WEDDING DAY?
DO YOU HAVE ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR LOCATIONS?
We’ll come up with a rain plan! Beautiful portraits are going to happen no matter what. Some of my favorite photos are from rainy wedding days when everyone grabs an umbrella and embraces it!
I have loads of ideas for locations. From intimate corners in the city, to big open fields. From woodsy to modern, I always love finding the right locations specifically for you. Ideally, we'll shoot in a location that has meaning or speaks to you in some way.
