It's been a busy year so far with lots of meetings with couples, answering inquiries, signing contracts, etc. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions I get...
What attire will you wear to my wedding?
I will be dressed formally, although I don't usually wear a tie unless requested to do so. It's absolutely no problem to do that, but I will have two camera bodies with large lenses attached to me most of the day. Wearing a tie, I will need to clip it so it doesn't flop around on me and interfere with shooting.
My female assistant will also be dressed up although she will not be wearing a dress. She will be asked to stand on a ladder on occasion as well as lug equipment and get low to the ground as well as hold light reflectors over her head, etc. We will accommodate if you ask, but this is the usual modus operandi.
I'm interested in possibly hiring you, now what do I do?
We should set up a meeting ASAP so you can have an opportunity to get to know me as well as see samples of my work. When you are ready to book, I require a 50% deposit to hold the date. I start working for you immediately by scouting locations, jotting down ideas, etc.
Do we see you next on our wedding day?
I request that we meet one or more times after we book the photography for your wedding. I hope we will be doing engagement shots together as we can chat then and get comfortable with each other. Either way, I like for you can fill out the Wedding Shot List I gave you and we can discuss those needs. I'd also like to meet you at some of the locations we discussed for your formal pictures. This is also a good time to find out any restrictions your Pastor or Priest might have during the ceremony. We can also settle on a Plan B in case of bad weather.
How do we review the images?
I do post the images online, but I like to meet with the bride and groom in person so i can see their reactions, offer them prints specials and discuss what to leave out of the wedding album (if anything)and the general design scheme of the album as well. After that, an online gallery will be published for family and friends to view and order images.
I'm always available for any of your questions. Just fill out the Contact Form if you are too shy or too busy to call.
