• How do we book you?
Easy. First things first, get in touch to see if your date is available! If we're in the clear, I'll send over a quote for the Collection that fits you and your day. A 50% retainer and signed contract confirms your date, and the remaining balance is due on/before event date. (Before is always preferred and recommended, because let's be real; you don't need one more thing to worry about on your wedding day.)
• What payment methods to you accept?
Call me old school, but I only accept payment in the form of a check. (And cash, of course.)
• What are your prices?
Wedding coverage starts at $2,495, most couples spend between $3,200 and $4,000 on their Wedding Collection. Send me an email and let's talk about the rest. All other sessions start at $350.
• Do you travel?
I do! I arrange the travel details (flight, stay, rental car) and provide a quote with travel included so you know exactly how much it'll be.
I've photographed lovers in:
- Page, Arizona (Horseshoe Bend)
- Scottsdale, Arizona
- Harbour Island, Bahamas
- San Francisco, California
- Big Sur, California (Pfeiffer Beach)
- Brooklyn, New York
- Manhattan, New York City
- Memphis, Tennessee
Passport is current.
• Do you have insurance?
Yep! Some venues require liability insurance, so if you've booked your venue already and they've asked you about it, I'll connect with them and get them what they need.
• Do you offer Engagement Sessions?
Yes! Engagement Sessions are more like hang out sessions. They give you the opportunity to get comfortable being in front of my camera, and they give me the opportunity to get to know you better. It's always best to not have a complete stranger taking your photos on your wedding day, am I right?
• Do you offer Wedding Albums?
I do! It's a collaborative effort! I'm a firm believer in having something tangible To Have & To Hold from your wedding day. You can find more information on Wedding Albums HERE.
• Can we order Prints through you?
You sure can, and I encourage it! Your wedding photos deserve professional quality printing. I use WHCC for prints and I've ordered my own to make sure you're getting the best quality to hang in your home. (I offer framed prints too, less headache on your end.)
• What is a "First Look"?
This is your moment. In a nutshell, a "First Look" is a special moment for you and your betrothed to see one another before your ceremony. It is a very intimate time and gives you two a quiet moment together before your day starts. Doing a First Look adds more time to your day, and in turn adds more time to be photographed. More time to focus on gorgeous bridal portraits and stunning images of the two of you.
• What is a "Pre-Wedding Session"?
A Pre-Wedding Session (aka "Asian Pre Wedding") is a combination of a First Look and the Formal Session on your wedding day, captured a few days before your actual wedding day. We'd pick a day and you get ready and all done-up, we go to a rad location, and spend a few hours making photos. This equates to less stress on your wedding day and more time for you to spend with your loved ones, and also loads of awesome photos of you and your bae. I love these and wish more couples would consider them, they're a ton of fun and we get to capture images that we otherwise wouldn't get on a typical wedding day.
• What is "Golden Hour"?
Golden Hour is the hour(ish) of time right before the sun goes down, when the lighting is at it's best for making portraits. It's when I prefer to either pull the Bride and Groom out for a breather during their reception to make more photos, or help plan the timeline accordingly so that this is when you have your session (after the ceremony/during cocktail hour).
• What is an "Unplugged Wedding"?
I could go into great detail here. This article pretty much sums it up.
• Do you only photograph weddings?
Nope! Although the majority of my work is weddings, I still shoot portraits, high school seniors, lifestyle sessions, and family sessions throughout the week. Get in touch and LET'S MAKE PHOTOS.
• When do we get to see our photos, and how do we get them?
Typical turn around time for weddings is 6-8 weeks, all other sessions are 3-4 weeks. Your images are delivered in hi-res through a personalized online photo gallery. From there you can download your images directly to your computer or smartphone, as well as order prints/canvases right from your gallery. You can also share your gallery with friends and family by sending them the website link. You'll be provided with a password and download code upon delivery so your images are nice and secure. Albums, prints, and framed prints are excluded from this timeframe.
• I have questions that aren't listed here...
No worries! Let's talk.
