I have extensive studio and natural lighting experience.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I shoot both film and digital and love the various advantages of both!
How many photographers do you work with?
For smaller weddings I work with one assistant. For larger weddings I hire a second photographer.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
I will always be there to make sure we capture hundreds of beautiful images from each wedding day.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I never over book. It's very important to limit the amount of weddings I shoot in order to give my clients the best of my vision, energy and focus.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Various digital and film cameras. Backup cameras and lighting- all the large equipment (tripods, etc.) stay in the car unless absolutely necessary in order to keep us out of the way and keep couples focused on their day.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Absolutely!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I charge for package rates 5 hours or unlimited wedding day. I do this because I prefer to be there for the whole day- making sure a potentially beautiful image isn't missed. I am flexible and can do hourly on request if needed.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, $200 hr.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I take minimal breaks throughout the day and give my assistants a 30 minute break as time allows for lunch.
Do you charge for travel?
For the extended Seattle, WA, Portland, OR and Salt Lake City, UT areas there is no to minimal travel fee. For other areas we charge a flat rate-- this will include the cost of plane flights and 1 night hotel room HOWEVER we only charge the client 75% of the cost and we travel enough that we get very large discounts. We do this because it is beneficial to us to travel and network in other areas so we keep costs very low for this purpose. It is not uncommon to have as low as $175 for the total travel cost.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
2 weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
We do online proofing and ordering and we mail out the DVD. I am able to do a printed proof sheet for clients by request.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
For online proofs, they are available for 9 months.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I retain copyright for photos but give a written permission for the couple to print any and all images along with their DVD of images.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
I retain copyright for photos but give a written permission for the couple to print any and all images along with their DVD of images.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Always. It's so important to have those photographs- this is your wedding day! I want couples to be excited to go home and throw their photos up on Facebook, email them to friends and cover their new walls with them. I shoot photographs that capture a celebration and with all celebrations, they are better meant shared for generations.
Will images be available for viewing online?
All images will be available 2 weeks after the event date online for 9 months.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer a huge range of albums. I learned a lot about album techniques throughout my extensive education and cannot say enough about how wonderful it is to curl up on the couch with an album on your coffee table and show it to guests, family and friends who visit!
 
 As a little girl I remember my parents owning an album of their wedding photos. It was the only remnant of their wedding that they still had. All of the photographs beautifully intact, representing the style of the time. It is so important for us to retain timeless photographs to share with the people we love for a very long time and albums are one of the best way to preserve these relics. 
 
 I offer everything from simple hardback photo books to thick hardbound albums to stunning flush-mount albums. I offer various cover colors and types and have multiple samples to show couples when they are deciding.
When will the client get the final album?
2 to 4 weeks after the wedding.
