Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located? Brian and I just moved from San Diego, California, to Salt Lake City, Utah. But don't let that deter you! I love traveling, and there are quite a few places I would love to take photos at.
What are your travel fees? Travel fees vary, but 2 nights stay in a hotel plus airfare + car rental is required for non-local weddings.
What is your style? I shoot preferably under natural light conditions in a manner that is mostly documentary. I want to photograph you with little posing and directing. You can expect me to be looking for moments that will tell a story. I want you to look back on your images and remember the emotions you felt as the moments were happening. This style is the same whether I'm shooting a wedding, family session, or editorial.
Do you work with a shot list? I've photographed enough weddings to know what images and moments need to be captured (the first time you see each other, your first kiss, the first dance, etc.), but I prefer to not have a physical list. It stifles creativity, and while most weddings follow a similar timeline, you two as a couple are unique and deserve to be documented as such.
Do you have vendors you prefer to work with? It depends on where you are tying the knot. I know a lot of great vendors in Southern California, so if you need suggestions, please ask!
Will Brian be there at our session? We want someone to tell us jokes! If you're getting married, Brian will most likely be there alongside me as my second shooter. If you've booked a family session or portrait session, it really just depends on the nature of our shoot. If you want him there to tell you jokes and make you laugh, let me know and we'll make it happen!
What should I wear to our session? This really depends on where we will be during our session and what your own personal style is! If you want some suggestions, we can definitely chat about it.
We think you might be out of our budget. Do you offer discounts? Go ahead and fill out the inquiry form. We might be able to make something work! If not, I can most definitely refer you to a few other amazing photographers.
Can we meet you before we decide to hire you? Of course! If you're local, let's grab a cup of coffee, some ice cream, or a beer. We'd love to meet you! If you aren't local, I'm available via FaceTime or Google Hangout.
Alright, we love you! How do we book you? To book, a deposit and signed contract is required. I do offer payment plans as well, so please contact me with any questions.
