INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards, Video Montage
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
I use many special techniques. Every image is reviewed, enhanced, color-corrected, etc. I use sepia toning and black and white as well as special effects.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
All lighting... Of course there is always that ideal lighting that all photographers hope for, however that is not the primary thought for the bride when she chooses her wedding venue.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I work primarily in digital, however, it is always fun to go back to my old 35 mm... but NEVER when shooting something as important as a wedding. Weddings need perfection... and that is what most digital cameras deliver.
How many photographers do you work with?
Myself and 1 additional photographer when the occasion arises. She is very qualified and has worked under me for several years.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Absolutely! The only time you will get my additional photographer is when she works with me, or if there is an unforseen emergancy!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never 2 weddings in a day! Brides do not deserve that... they already have too much to think about. Possibly 2 on a weekend... if they are close in distance and are relatively easy weddings. I always meet with my brides at least twice to know what their needs are. If their wedding is big and requires a lot of extra attention, then no... I wouldn't book another for the same weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes. My additional photographer is very well trained and I would trust her explicitly!
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Cameras, lighting (if needed), flashes, extra batteries, motor drives, extra image cards, battery packs, tripod, etc.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes... just in case.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I charge per package, or hourly.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes, always... the whole day is theirs if they need it. I charge $100 an hour overtime.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
None... usless i need to use the powder room! :)
Do you charge for travel?
Yes, if it is over 100 miles. However... it is usually integrated into the price and discussed prior to the wedding.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
They are online and ready for viewing in a week! Why should my brides wait a month or longer to see their photos?
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Website or a proof book. You cannot see what your photos look like in a thumbnail... it is too hard for the bride to make a decission off of a thumbnail size photo or a standard contact sheet.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
They are their's to keep.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes... I always have my brides sign model releases. If they do not wish to have their faces shown publicly, I honor their wishes.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, if it is included in their package.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes
What kind of albums do you offer?
A selection of beautiful albums in three different sizes.
When will the client get the final album?
In approximately 2 weeks from the time you order it.

There is no way I would ever recommend Deborah to anyone for even senior pictures! She was the photographer for my daughter wedding last August. It took her 8 months and 8 days to get a disc of the pictures to us and the disc was blank! So we were back to the unanswered phone calls and email. This time it only took a couple of weeks to get a new one. There was not one picture of the bride alone or her dress. Very basic. and as stated by others very over edited. I could go on and on but am just really hoping people see reviews of this before they book her. Thank God she liked my mother in law and let her take some pictures because they were the best ones we got. Usually she does not allow any other pictures to be taken or she will leave and you sign that you agree to that in her contract. This is the first review I have ever written but feel very strongly about this.

Deborah is professional but does not leave out the personal touch...she is someone you want to work with as well as be friends with. You can tell she loves what she does and wants to do the very best for her customers. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
