Q&A

 

DO YOU TAKE WEDDING DAY FAMILY PORTRAITS?

Of course!  Family portraits are important.  We will find a way to get it done efficiently so everyone can enjoy the day.
 

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?  

Yes, I do.  I would be happy to provide your venue with my insurance information.    

 

SHOULD WE PLAN TO FEED YOU AT OUR WEDDING?

Yes, please.  A simple warm vegetarian meal would reenergize me and get me through the rest of the wedding.    


WILL ALL MY PHOTOS BE EDITED?

Absolutely.  I personally edit every singe one of them.  Color, contrast, and exposure will be adjusted.

 

WHAT IS THE RESOLUTION OF THE PICTURES I WILL BE RECEIVING?

High-resolution JPEG file is between 6,000 by 4,005 pixels and 3,000 by 2,003 pixels.
Low-resolution JPEG file is 1,600 by 1,068 pixels.


HOW QUICKLY WILL I GET TO SEE MY PHOTOS AFTER THE WEDDING? 

Within a week after the wedding, I will send over 30 to 40 photos as a sneak peek.  Then within six to eight weeks, you will receive a link to the online gallery as well as the USB drive for a full set of photos.


DO I HAVE TO BUY PRINTS FROM YOU?

Nope.  With the high-resolution files, you will have the freedom to get them printed wherever you want.   

 

DO YOU DO DESTINATION WEDDINGS?

Yes, I would love to.  I love seeing new places and experience different cultures.  Peru, India, and Cambodia are some of my favorite countries I have traveled to.  I look forward to adding your wedding to this list. 

 

BOOKING AND PAYMENT METHODS


HOW DO WE SECURE THE DATE?

You will need to sign a contract electronically and pay a retainer. The retainer is 50% of the total balance and non-refundable.
 

WHAT PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?

I accept check, Chase QuickPay, debit card, and credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express).  


WHEN IS MY FINAL PAYMENT DUE?

EQUIPMENT AND BACKUP


DO YOU SHOOT DIGITAL OR FILM?

100% digital


WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

I currently shoot with two Fuji X-T2 cameras, prime lenses, and two flashes.


WHAT KIND OF BACKUP SYSTEM DO YOU HAVE?

Having a backup system is extremely important.  That’s why I have two cameras.  If one fails, the other can back it up.  In each camera, I have two memory cards installed.  Once I get home, I would save a copy to an external hard drive and onto the cloud.
