Q: What will my initial consultation with you include?
A: Basically we will sit down and discuss your likes/dislikes about photography and I will show you some samples of my work. Most likely we will meet at a neutral place and meet for about an hour. Also, bring your ideas questions. I am here you, so please don’t hesitate with anything you want to ask. will give a packet that includes more information on my packages, photo checklist sample contract. If all goes well, we can sign contract or save date.
Q: Do you carry back-up equipment with you to each event?
A: Absolutely. Failed equipment is the last thing I want to happen. I always keep a back-up (or two!) on hand so this will never be a problem!
Q: How long does it generally take to receive our proofs, enlargements and CD’s after our wedding?
A: Approximately 10-14 weeks.
Q: How long does a photo session last?
A: Usually about 1.5 hours. I am not a clock watcher, however. I will stay until we are both satisfied with the shots. For newborn or boudoir sessions especially, I realize that it may take longer due to clothing changes or feeding schedules and am very open to your needs.
Q: What kind of photography do specialize in?
A: I am a photojournalistic photographer, which simply means I photograph things as they happen. I understand not everyone likes this particular style, and am adaptable to your needs and requests. For child sessions, I like to make them feel like they aren’t at a photo session and let them have fun and only pose when needed. Children are most happy in their own world – that’s where you will get the most genuine smiles and reactions for the camera.
Q: Why should we hire you?
A: Ah….The most important and vital question! I am a very easy-going person, which I think is needed as a professional photographer in many different ways. I am also very detail-oriented, which is important with not only editing your images, but always keeping that eye out for the next best shot. Thirdly, I love people just as much as I love cameras or photography. I can’t wait to tell your story. People are what make the photos come to life. Last, but not least, I am a good listener. Vendors often forget that they are offering a service for YOU. Please let me know your questions/concerns. I am here to help. These photos are a reflection of you, your love, your life. I want you to be happy. That is my ultimate goal.
Q: What is boudoir photography?
A: Boudoir photography is a sexy new trend that’s especially popular as a wedding day gift from a bride to her groom. My aim is sensual and classy – think PG-13 photos, not XXX-rated. Many different types range from pinup, retro, romance to whatever your style! You have your choice of doing this session in my studio or a hotel. If you are interested, please email me so I can send you more information.
Q: Why aren’t there any boudoir photos on your site?
A: I take my client’s privacy very seriously and believe that your boudoir photos aren’t for me to share. They are strictly your choice to show who YOU would like. If you have further questions about this policy, contact me.
If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
