“I’d love to hear from you! Let’s bring your ideas into focus and schedule a time to talk! Be sure to check out my frequently asked questions below.”
All enquiries will be answered within 24 hours.
What does your pricing include? Continuous coverage of your wedding for the amount of hours needed, hi-resolution digital JPEG files with print release (no water markings), professional retouching & editing on all images, a private online photo gallery to share with friends and family, travel & tax. *Items such as albums, prints or engagement sessions are not included but can be added if desired. Contact me for details.
How many pictures will we receive? I typically shoot & deliver 50-75 final shots per hour of coverage. For an 8 hour day I deliver, on average, 650 photographs. This is just an average and could be significantly more for larger weddings or events of 100-300 people.
Do you edit all of our photographs? Yes, I do! Every image that you receive has been individually hand-edited, one at a time, without batching in bulk groups or mass-producing the results. I often select a few favorites for special attention above and beyond the individual image editing.
What are the next steps? If you have reviewed my portfolio and would like to book me for your wedding, awesome! Please fill out my contact form above and I will respond within 24 hours with a custom quote & contract for you to review. All quotes and contracts can be accepted and signed online. Super simple – No faxes, email attachments, pdf’s, or scanning!
Do you require a deposit? Yes, due to the high volume of inquiries received during wedding season, I require a 50% deposit of the total amount to reserve my services for your wedding day. I do offer refunds up until one week before the wedding should you need to cancel.
What is your refund/cancellation policy? If you cancel before the wedding date, I retain the down payment (because I am turning away other possible bookings). I do however recommend wedding insurance that will take care of situations like these.
Do you travel outside of the San Francisco Bay Area? Yes! My passport is ready for your next adventure. Clients will be responsible for travel expenses (airfare, airport parking, lodging, and car rental)
Do you have past clients we can speak to as references? I can absolutely understand why you’d ask this. After all, if you’re applying for a job, it’s customary to list your previous employers as references. I don’t provide client references to prospective wedding couples for a few reasons. First of all, any reference I would give you would be biased – of course I’d choose clients that I know would speak most highly about myself and my services. Second of all, I truly respect my clients’ investment in my services and work, and could never ask a client to market for me on their own time.
