FAQ

What are your rates for weddings?

2019 collections begin at $2,200. Every collection is completely customizable so we can discuss what is best for you.

How do I book you for our Wedding Day?

Once you have chosen me as your photographer (YAY!)  you can sign our contract online and make a deposit of $600 to reserve the day.

What is my payment schedule?

A non refundable $600 deposit is due with the signing of the contract. The remaining balance of your package is due one month prior to your wedding date. I accept all payment types but there is a 3% processing fee for credit card and PayPal payments. If you pay via Venmo, cash, or check, that fee is waived.

If we cancel the wedding, will we receive our deposit back?

Unfortunately no. Deposits are used to reserve your date. Once I’ve reserved your date, I do not accept new clients for your date. Please understand that circumstances does not exempt this policy…sorry.

If we change our wedding to a different date, will we be able to use our deposit towards a future date?

If the new date is available, then yes. Also, if rates change from your original date to your new date, the new rates will apply. There is also a 25% rescheduling fee.

Can I add on to our package later once we have a better idea of logistics?

Yes! We actually encourage you to do so as we don’t expect you to have everything planned so far in advance. You can add on and adjust your package up to 30 days before the wedding.

Do you help us make a timeline?

Yeah man! I’m available throughout your planning process to give timeline feedback and help you structure the logistics for photos. I strongly recommend booking a day-of or month-of coordinator if you are not working with a full planner. If you need help finding someone, let me know!

How much time do you need to get all our photos? I don’t want to miss the party or the cocktail hour.

However much or little time you want. We can do couples portraits in less than 15 minutes, or can do an epic shoot spanning 2 hours. I'm here to provide ideas, guidance, and feedback when you need. I would recommend allotting at least 30-45 minutes for photos of the two of you.

How many photos will I receive?

Depending on the wedding package you decide to go with, the amount of images will vary. 80-100 images per hour of coverage is the average delivery image count. For your engagement session you will receive 75-100 images.

Will the images be edited, or retouched?

Yes! All of the images delivered to you will be color corrected and edited in my signature style. I edit myself so I will be taking care of you from start to finish. Cosmetic and Advanced retouching is included in 3-5 images.

What is Cosmetic and Advanced Retouching?

Cosmetic Retouching is slimming or reshaping body parts, retouching wrinkles or blemishes, removing fly away hairs, etc.  Advanced retouching is removing large object from a scene, swapping faces or any heavy manipulation of a scene. There is an hourly charge for these services since each request has a different level of complexity.

(How fucking crazy is that????)

Where are you located? Will you travel?

I am located in Queens, NY but always have my bags packed for the next adventure! Check out my travel list for discounted destinations.

How will I receive my photos?

All of your high resolution images will be emailed to you in an online gallery that can be shared with anyone you’d like. You will also receive a 40% off coupon code for the first 8 weeks to order prints.

When will I get my photos?

You will get a sneak peek within 7 days, and the rest of your images will be emailed in a download link within 55 days after your big day. Engagement sessions typically take 2-4 weeks to process.

Do you have backup equipment? What about a backup plan if you are unable to shoot my wedding for some reason?

Yes, and Yes. I have a back up camera and lighting system of equal quality to cover anything that could happen on the wedding day. In the extremely unlikely event that I am not able to be with you on your wedding day, I have a list of talented peers that could act as my stand in for your day.

Do you offer a second photographer?

Yes! A second shooter is an invaluable part of the big day to capture every memory as it unfolds. I highly recommend to choose a collection with 2 photographers. This helps develop the story of your day with incredible depth. You know those candids you love so much? A second shooter gets you so much more of that.

Do you offer albums and prints?

Yep! I offer custom designed albums that can be added a la carte and are included at a discount in some packages.  Prints can be purchased through your online viewing gallery, or if you would like to use a third party, that’s fine too!

Can I give you a list of specific shots we would like or photos I have seen on Pinterest?

Yes. I ask every client to create a “mood board” before their wedding and engagement session to get an idea of your style and vision for your photography.  We will go over this together and I will get an idea of what shots are most important to you.  Of course,  having trust in my artistic eye is very important to let creativity and moments come naturally.

How will you be dressed?

I wear black pants and a simple blouse, t-shirt, and/or jacket. I’ll to look nice but be able to move around and get the shot. I’m usually crouching in a bush or down in the dirt to get the perfect shot!
