FAQ

"Hey...I've got a question..."


"WHAT QUESTIONS SHOULD I BE ASKING, IN SEARCHING FOR MY PHOTOGRAPHER?"

There are SOOO many variables, and questions, you should know about, and, be asking...

For example:

1. "Are you available on my wedding date?"

2. "How many photographers will be at my wedding?"

3. "Is this your Full-Time profession, or, do you have a job during the week?"

4. "Do you carry insurance, and, if needed, can you supply a Certificate of Insurance to my venue?"

5. "Will my wedding be the only event you schedule on that day?"

...And...a gazillion more...!!


I, for one, LOVE answering questions; I sincerely LOVE when a prospective couple visits me with a notebook tucked under the arm, and, filled with "What about's" and "How do you's", and, more...!!

I love all this because I know I'll be creating images for couples who value their images.

If, you're going to tell me that I "have about 20-30 minutes" for photographs, then, I'm probably not the best fit for your wedding vision...

I'm always able to assist my couples with their Wedding Day Timelines, to ensure your lifelong vision is realized...

My goal, from the moment we first chat, to well after delivery of your incredible Wedding Collection, is for you to have had an "experience" with me, and, my Studio...

I want you to be able to joyfully tell your families and friends of your "experience" with us; your images will speak for themselves...


"HOW MANY HOURS OF PHOTOGRAPHY DO I NEED?"

I know each and every wedding is unique, and, extremely personal, as it should be... And, I certainly realize that "One Size DOESN'T Fit All".

My Studio offers "Full-Day" Wedding Collections, as well as a full series of "Hourly" Wedding Collections...

During our initial consultation, whether in person, by phone, text, email, FaceTime, etc... I'll get an idea on your day's timelines, and, I'll make suggestions accordingly.

I'll also make sure you're not investing more money than is necessary, to achieve your vision...

For those of you who travel here from around the world, and the country, to be married on our fabulous beaches, and require just a couple hours, or so, of love from us...we offer very special Wedding Collections, just for you!

AND...because MY name is on the door, I can also customize a Wedding Collection, to help you achieve your specific vision, for your wedding images...


"BEFORE WE MEET, HOW MUCH CAN I EXPECT TO SPEND?"

So often, couples call me and ask, "how much for a wedding", well...that's just like walking into your Bridal Gown Shop and asking, "How much for a dress?"...or, a car dealership and asking, "how much for a car?"

....are you looking for a brand new Cadillac, or, an '89 Ford Festiva...?? See the loaded question, here?

Although we offer a wide variety of Wedding Collections, and, customization of Collections, our couples generally average an investment between $2700-$3700

and, as a reminder...For those of you who travel here from around the world, and the country, to be married on our fabulous beaches, and require just a couple hours, or so, of love from us...we offer very special Wedding Collections, just for you!

AND...because MY name is on the door, I can also customize a Wedding Collection, to help you achieve your specific vision, for your wedding images...

IMPORTANT TO KNOW: I'd also like to chat with you about our very unique, Couples' Registry Program. This program is completely complimentary, if you wish to be a part of it, and, it's sole purpose it to keep more money in your pockets...!!

(There's rarely a Wedding Reception that goes by, that I'm not approached by family or friends, thanking me for the Couples' Registry Program...!! Call me if you'd like to know more...!!)


"HOW MUCH TIME DO WE NEED TO SPEND TAKING PHOTOS; I WANT TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS"


I realize how important it is for you to be a part of all that is going on during your wedding day (the day goes by SO quickly), and, my goal is to make sure that you do.

Most of your day will be of me, and my team, photographing candidly, as the moments happen in real-time, capturing the purest of emotions, as they happen!

During those brief times when we do need to choreograph poses (The "Formals" right after your ceremony; "Sunset Portraits"; "Couple-Alone Portraits"), we are very methodical in all that we do, to get you back to your guests...

If, you're going to tell me that I "have about 20-30 minutes" for photographs, then, I'm probably not going to be the best fit for your wedding vision...

I'm always able to assist my couples with their Wedding Day Timelines, to ensure your lifelong vision is realized...


"WHAT DO I NEED TO RESERVE OUR WEDDING DATE?"

We require a Non-Refundable Retainer of 50% of the total of the Wedding Collection chosen. The balance is not due until 30 days prior to your wedding date (This gives your Couples' Registry Program time to go to work for you, reducing, or possibly even eliminating, your balance due...!!).


"WILL I HAVE THE "RIGHTS" TO PRINT IMAGES?"

All our Wedding Collections beginning with our 5-Hour Collection, and higher, include the "Full-Resolution" digital files, accompanied by our "Print Release", allowing you to print as many, and as often, as you wish...

Our more Intimate-Sized Wedding Collections, 4-Hours, and less, include our "Web-Friendly Resolution" digital files. These are perfectly sized for electronic use: computer viewing/sharing; Internet; Social Media, etc. These are top quality for these purposes, however, not of print quality.

We do however, offer the option to upgrade to the "Full-Resolution", digital files, accompanied with our "Print Release" if desired...


"HOW QUICKLY WILL I GET MY IMAGES AFTER MY WEDDING DAY?"

I understand your excitement in wanting to see your final images; I'm also very excited to get them to you...!

We strive to deliver a handful of "Teasers" within just a few days of your wedding, for you to enjoy, and to share, while we are working on the balance of your images.

By contract, we have a 6-8 week turnaround time for completion (except, album delivery)

Many couples don't realize that the bulk of the time consuming work comes after your wedding day has come and gone...

During our in-house, post-production process, we analyze each and every image, independently. Sooo...It's safe to say we dedicate several hours of editing, for every one-hour of photographing your wedding.

Remember the 'ol saying..."It takes 6 months to build a Rolls-Royce, and, 13 hours to build a Toyota"
