INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I have been shooting weddings for over 8 years and have photographed in every type of lighting situation that one can imagine.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital
How many photographers do you work with?
Depends on the wedding and the client's needs for photographic coverage. I have several talented photographers who assist me at weddings when needed.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, I am always the lead photographers at all events that are booked through my company.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I am never booked for more than one event in a day but on occasion I am booked for two consecutive days.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I work with several professional photographers in the Metro DC area and in case of a sudden illness or accident there will be another professional, high-quality photographer available to take my place.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
On the day of the wedding I work with two cameras, a variety of lenses and flashes.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
I always have back-up equipment with me.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My pricing is based on an hourly rate.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Clients are always able to have me stay extra hours if needed. At times I will stay an extra 30 minutes up to an hour beyond the contracted time without charging extra if I feel like there are still important moments to be captured.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I prefer to eat when everyone else is eating their meals. This way I don't miss anything. I don't have a preference on the meal that is provided for me but I do request that my clients arrange for the caterer to provide me with something to eat.
Do you charge for travel?
I charge very reasonably for travel over 100 miles round-trip.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
I send a preview of images to my clients within about a week of the wedding and the rest of the images are online within 4 weeks. Because I like to apply an artistic touch to my photos, I have a very extensive editing process that takes time to provide my clients with high-quality finished products.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
They are provided in an online gallery and digital negatives on DVD.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The images remain online for one year. The clients keep their digital negatives.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
While the client keeps the DVD and proofs and has the right to reproduce these images for their own personal use, I retain the intellectual property rights for future promotional use and unlimited non-exclusive rights.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Unless my client requires that their images not be used for publication, I reserve the right to publish the photos.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
The high-resolution files are delivered to my clients on DVD.
Will images be available for viewing online?
All of the images are placed in a password protected online gallery.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I work mainly with RedTree and Renaissance Albums and a few other companies. I provide customized Flush Mount, Matted and Coffee Table albums & books. Albums may be ordered in a variety of sizes and finishes.

Amanda is the best...that's all there is to say. She is responsive, kind, caring, sweet, creative, and talented. We loved working with her from the first time we met her at our apartment to look at her portfolio. We immediately set up a date to take engagement photos with her, and they were absolutely perfect. On our wedding day our guests didn't even notice she was there even though she was right in the middle of everything taking pictures. She was excellent in keeping to a timely schedule, and was even great with the kids. Not only would we recommend Amanda to other people, but we will definitely be hiring her again in our future.

Amanda was the reason we had half the fun we did on our wedding day. She was absolutely phenomenal. We asked her to attend our Rehearsal Dinner to get to know our family better and my relatives thought she was part of the family! She is one of the nicest people I have met and is super talented with her camera. Every major moment of our wedding she was there capturing it without being obtrusive. Usually at weddings I hear "Hey Photographer!" a million times but we never had to tell her where to be, and she was on a first name basis with everyone there. At the Sunday Brunch after our wedding I was asked probably 15 times who our Photographer was because "she was just so cool". We are so unbelievably happy we chose her to document the entire day! The sunset was epic on our wedding and even though the temperature dropped uncharacteristically down to 30 degrees that night, the bridal party was more than happy to come back outside for her. Amanda had to be freezing the entire night but she didn't complain about it once. We plan on having her back to capture all of our major life moments!!!! Highly, highly, highly recommend her to everyone!!!

Amanda is kindhearted, genuine, and passionate about capturing both the big and little moments and emotions on a wedding day. After just one engagement shoot with her, she already felt like family, and made my husband and me feel completely at ease. All the guests loved her. Despite the stress and craziness of the post-ceremony photo shoot and the reception, she was a calming presence and helped us take creative, fun, and romantic photos. And they really are amazing, we could not be happier. I'd trust her with my life :) Thank you Amanda!!

Amanda is an amazing photographer. Her work is more of passion than business. This is her first Indian Hindu wedding ceremony to photograph. She also took photos of my daughter's sangeet event. On both occasion she was working tireless. Did not care for the crazy long hours and typical chaos of an Indian wedding. Just focused and captured all the beautiful moments. Frankly as a father of the bride I have nor words to say how best this photographer is.

Amanda was absolutely wonderful for our wedding photography! She absolutely captured every moment of our wedding beautifully! The pictures were better then we could ever imagined. Amanda acted more as a friend for us on out wedding day. From when the bride was getting ready to the very last minute of the day she was there for all pictures. She responds very quickly to any questions or concerns you have before, during and after your wedding! My husband was diagnosed with cancer right before the wedding and in efforts to help us raise donations for his website she personally put a blog post up for us! She is so kind and helpful! We are so pleased with the outcome and would recommend her for ANYONE who has a wedding. Please book her today! We plan to do so again!

Amanda is amazing! We used her for our engagement and wedding photos and plan to use her again in the future! She fits in well with the wedding guests and captured all the great moments we hoped to have in our wedding album! She is super flexible and talented ! We get compliments all the time on all of the photos from her. We had our engagement pictures taken in a tourist/heavily populated area in a city during a festival, and you couldn't tell by the pictures! She is so creative and we can't wait to work with her again in the future!

I'm going to start off this review by saying that no photographer will ever be as awesome as Amanda! She is so sweet, so laid back and easy going and is extremely talented. We emailed her picture upon picture of styles we wanted to emulate and she just that. Amanda shot our wedding invitations, our rehearsal dinner, my bridal shower and our wedding. As long as she keeps on photographing, I will never hire anyone else!

I cannot say enough good things about Amanda. She was simply incredible! My husband and I really wanted to invest in our photographer because it's the only thing about your day that lasts longer than the day...other than your marriage of course. ;-) We were getting married right at sunset so we knew that we needed someone who was comfortable working in changing light. Her work was just perfect! Amanda really captured our day in such a beautiful way. AND, she was so lovely to be around. She was in the background moving around in such a way that you hardly noticed she was there at times. She was everywhere without being obtrusive...she lets the moments happen and captures them so beautifully. So many of our guests complimented us on her and how fabulous she was!! Seriously, who ever compliments the photographer before they even see the pictures? That's how great she is!! Her packages are so affordable and you get to keep the pictures! Amanda is the best investment you can make in the memory of your big day!! Seriously! I would recommend her to anyone!

Anyone who knows or has seen Amanda’s work, knows that she is an absolutely AMAZING photographer and extremely easy to work with! She has an amazing eye for angles and is very creative when it comes to photo ops. I love the fact that she doesn’t make all of your pictures posed like most photographers. Five stars really does not do her justice. She’s very prompt, personable, and professional not to mention that she does more than just bridal photos and she will travel. I loved working with her and will definitely be using her for any photos in the future! If you are looking for an amazing and talented photographer for your engagement, wedding, maternity, family, pets or whatever, Amanda is hands-down the best!
