Where are you based?
I'm located in Orange County, but pretty much travel all over.
How do I book a wedding with you?
I shoot a limited number of weddings per year. So basically I book based on current availability. My dates do fill up quickly so a 30% retainer is due at signing to secure my availability for your day.
How do I book a portrait session?
I also shoot a limited number of portrait sessions. Please check my availability, toward the end of the year my dates are VERY limited. I require a 50% retainer to secure your date.
How long does it take to get our photos from you after our wedding?
I take about a month to deliver your photos, wedding season 6-8 weeks
How long does it take to get our photos from you after our portrait session?
About 2 weeks.
Do you decide where we take our portraits?
I can offer several recommendations based on your needs, otherwise please free to let me know if you have any specific place in mind. I'm totally open.
Do you decide where we take our engagement photos?
Actually, during our consult we will discuss the engagement session in detail. Let's be honest, I would love to tell you where to go, but I highly recommend that the location(s) come from you. Most of the time the locations are chosen because of cool memories or it fits a certain theme you are going for. Preferably I recommend choosing two different locations.
Do you offer albums?
Yes, Fine Art Albums to be exact for weddings and portrait sessions.
If we get an album how long does it take to receive it?
You can expect to receive your album 4 weeks after final design approval.
Do you give high resolution images?
Yes, with each wedding I deliver high resolution edited images.
How many image should I expect from my wedding?
I deliver between 500-800 final images.
What type of payments do you accept?
Cash ONLY, LOL, just playing! I accept all major credit cards, checks and yes cash is rad.
How do you define your style?
I believe my style is what I have labelled, Legacy. It's a hybrid between documentary/storytelling with a touch of fine art. I don't necessarily focus on getting the perfect photo, but more of that perfect moment, at times an image may not be technically correct, but it will be one that will be remembered as part of your legacy. On your wedding day my approach is about 85% unscripted so I document your day as it unfolds, then the other 15% is for posed family photos, bridal party photos and then a few posed shots I like to get of you two alone.
