Frequently Asked Questions

Q: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

A: I am a documentary style photographer with an artistic eye. My goal is to document your wedding in the most authentic, genuine way in the most beautiful light. I strive to capture laughter and tears, while also taking time to create lovely portraits, family formals and bridal party photos. For portrait sessions I aim for natural interactions and casual poses. I always, ALWAYS, look for the best light first. 

Q: WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

A. I use Nikon cameras, lenses and lighting equipment. All equipment is maintained and serviced by Nikon certified facilities regularly.

Q: HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE AT OUR WEDDING?

A: That is up to you! Because every collection is customized to each client, it is entirely up to you how many photographers will be at your wedding. Having a small, intimate wedding? You are probably good to go with one photographer. Having a big wedding with lots of events and guests? You might want to consider adding a second.

Q: DO YOU EDIT ALL OF OUR PHOTOS?

A: I sure do! Every photo you receive will be individually edited. This might take a teensy extra bit of time, but I believe it is worth it to give you the absolute best images possible. 

Q: HOW MANY IMAGES CAN WE EXPECT?

A. On average you will receive 75-100 images per hour of coverage. This number can very based on the size of the wedding and number of events, such as toasts, formal dances, and length of ceremony. Rest assured, your event will be covered thoroughly. 

Q: WILL WE GET ALL OF OUR IMAGES ON USB? CAN WE PRINT THEM OURSELVES?

A: Yes and yes! Once you have received your images via the online gallery, your USB will follow shortly in the mail. You can print as many, and as large as you want. If you have an album as part of your package, the USB will come with the album.

Q: WE'RE HAVING A DESTINATION WEDDING. DO YOU TRAVEL?

A: Yes! I love destination weddings! Send me more information on your travel plans and I will create a custom wedding collection to best suit your needs.

Q: DO YOU CHARGE A TRAVEL FEE?

A: Travel fees may apply outside the Sacramento, San Francisco Bay Area and Tahoe, but contact us  to get a more accurate estimate on travel. Engagement sessions outside the Sacramento area do incur a travel fee at a rate of $75/hr of travel.

Q: DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

A: ABSOLUTELY! This is essential and I would be happy to provide proof of insurance to you or your venue.

Q: DO YOU ONLY SHOOT WEDDINGS?

A: No, I have the pleasure of shooting families, births, maternity, newborn and more. One of my favorite things is to follow along with my couples as they get engaged, marry and grow their families. This is a huge honor for me and I love it!

Q: HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR WEDDING DATE?

A: A deposit of $1000 and a signed contract are required to reserve your date. The contract and deposit are electronic and can be completed at your convenience right from your computer. Please be aware that dates are reserved on a first come first served basis and I cannot guarantee your date without a deposit or signed contract. Contact us here to get started!
