Looks like you're in a lot of places. Where are you actually based?
Short answer: I'm dually based in NYC and Orlando. Long answer: I live in Central Florida during the fall and winter, and in NYC during the spring and summer. BUT that doesn't mean I'm not available for all of your weddings. No matter the location, inquire!
Are you available for destination weddings?
YES! I love to travel and I'm definitely available for destination weddings within the US and around the world (I'm looking at you, Italy)!
Do you photograph elopements?
Of course! Depending on availability and the number of hours you have set aside for photography, I have special discounted rates for weekday weddings and elopements. You can find out more info about that by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Can we create a custom package?
I can definitely work with you to create a custom package that is tailored to your needs! Please keep in mind that this is my livelihood and career, and that I will need to work with a reasonable budget to book your date.
Can we see a full gallery?
Hell yes! Let me know which galleries are your favorite when you inquire, and I'll send those over to you! I highly recommend viewing several full galleries to get a full feel of what you will receive of the day from beginning to end.
How do we book our wedding date?
Don't you just hate that pesky 50% most vendors ask for? It's a lot to ask for, and I know you guys are booking vendors left and right. This is why I only require a $1,000 ($750 for elopements) retainer to book you're date! Flat rate across the board. Simple.
Do you offer payment plans?
Although I don't offer customizable payment plans, your payments will be split into three: retainer due upon booking, with the remaining balance split in half due midway and one month before your wedding date.
What is your turnaround rate for sessions? How about weddings?
The best part about booking me is knowing you'll have your photos within 2-4 weeks And just 48 hours for engagement and portrait sessions! Industry standard is 6-8 weeks, but don't worry—I'm not rushing! Thanks to my professional editing background, I've been able to master a quick workflow without compromising quality.
Do we get all of the photos?
OF COURSE—you get them ALL. The only ones you won't see are the mid-blink, out of focus, photobombed, blurry ones that should never make it on the internet, haha! I go through each and every photo making sure you get the best of the best, even if that means editing over 1000 of them!
Will we get the print release to our photos after our wedding?
Yes! Upon receiving your images, you will also get a full print release.
Are you covered with insurance?
Yes, my general liability insurance covers up to $2M per occurrence / $4M aggregate, and all of my gear is insured. We can provide a Certificate of Insurance to your venue if needed.
What happens in case you get sick or can't make it to our wedding?
The only way I won't make it to your wedding is if I die, and that hasn't happened yet ;) but in all seriousness, there is always a backup plan in place even if you don't see or hear about it. I have an intimate circle of photographers that are at my level if not even more experienced, just as skilled, and has the sam style of shooting as I do. These awesome togs are also who will be second shooting with me or associate shooting a date I'm already booked for.
Do you offer prints and albums?
The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional vendor, so I always encourage clients to let me help with prints — I have a convenient print shop within the private gallery you'll receive along with your digital downloads.
