Here I have for you, some answers to the most frequently asked questions. If there are any other questions you might have, please don't hesitate to ask.
Tell me about the Engagement Session…
One of the most valuable parts of the wedding experience is the engagement session! It is complimentary and is included in the collection for a reason. Everyone of my couples who has done an engagement session will tell you how incredible and fun it is, not only because of the awesome photos you will get, but also because we hang out and get to know each other! I learn how you interact, what poses look best and how to make you laugh ;). Come wedding day, you are more confident, ready, and stress free when it comes to being in front of the camera. A typical Engagement session lasts about 2-3 hours, depending on our location, outfits and overall experience, which is tailored to fit you as a couple.
How do you deliver the images?
You will get a private online Gallery Collection of photos, that will be easily accessible on any computer, mobile device or tablet. You can even order prints direct from the gallery from printing facilities only available to professional photographers. I also give a complimentary USB gift box.
When will I receive my images?
I hand edit all my photos, so the process takes typically between 8-16 weeks. (Engagement and other session images are ready within 3-4 weeks). I love to post sneak peeks on Facebook or Instagram as I edit, so stay tuned for the teasers ;).
How many Images do we receive?
From an Engagement session about 50-65 Images per hour (Average 90-200). For your wedding day I focus on capturing moments throughout the day, so you get a lot of variety of photos. Depending on how the day unfolds, you will receive an Average of 800-1200 photos.
Do you bring a second shooter to a wedding?
I always work with an assistant at weddings, they mostly help me with the gear and lighting. All my assistants are trained shooters who capture moments when I need them to. I have shot most weddings on my own with an assistant. However, if you would like to add on another professional shooter, you are welcome to do so. I highly recommend this if your wedding is more than 250 guests.
Do you travel?
As a destination wedding photographer, I absolutely love to travel! I do all the searching for flight, hotel and so on, that is the last thing you should be worried about during your wedding planning. I do not charge travel fee for the State of Florida. For East Coast the travel fee is $450, and for West Coast its $650. If you are planning an International wedding - Lets Talk ;)
Are you insured?
You better believe it. ;)
How many weddings do you shoot a year?
My goal is to shoot between 6-10 weddings per year. My couples deserve my utmost attention and service so I keep that number to a minimum.
Do you edit all of the photos yourself?
I do! To be honest, I tried once to outsource to the editing companies, and they just did not seem to get my style down. For this reason, I keep my booking rate to a minimum and hand edit each wedding myself.
How do we secure you for our wedding?
The booking process is very simple, let me know when you are ready to book and I will email over the contract! You can secure your wedding date with me with a 50% Retainer due at signing of the contract and the other 50% due one month before your wedding date. You can pay by credit card online (I will send the invoice) or by mailing a check, whichever is best for you!
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
