Is your media preference film or digital?
How many photographers do you work with?
Packages can be designed to include myself as the photographer with your choice of an assistant or an assistant and a second photographer.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
I pride myself on shooting all weddings and events personally.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I may shoot more than one event per weekend, but I only shoot one event per date.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have a network of professionals through the PPSNY and WPPI organizations that I work with.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I am a life-long Canon professional shooting with: 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II bodies, along with using only L series lenses. I also use Canon 580 EX flashes, studio strobes, and a variety of other lighting tools and modifiers as needed.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
All equipment is rotated out to send to Canon for yearly servicing, including clean and checks and calibration. I currently use 4 bodies, 12 lenses and 4 flash heads meaning there is always backup gear available. I am also a Canon CPS member with priority service and backup equipment in the event that my gear cannot be repaired and returned within 3 days.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Quotes are available to meet your needs. Pre-designed packages are also available.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I only book one event per day, so your wedding will have my undivided attention. Extra hours are always available.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Any coverage over 5 hours requires a meal. However, I am fine with the inclusion of a "vendor meal" versus including us for meals that your guests will be enjoying.
Do you charge for travel?
Travel is quoted on a per job basis. Up to 2 hours travel from my location is included, where more than 2 hours generally requires a hotel and a nominal fee to cover additional expenses.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Printed proofs are available in 2-3 weeks. Digital proofs are available within 24 hours for selected images.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Packages are available with printed proofs or with digital proofs and a DVD. All offerings are customized to meet your needs.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Proofs are yours to keep and use, and are not necessary to return.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
The client and the photographer share copyright of the images.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Will images be available for viewing online?
Upon request, images can be made available for viewing and downloading from online galleries.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I currently offer photo and storyboard albums (printed on watercolor paper.)
When will the client get the final album?
Albums are generally ready 4-6 weeks after album design is approved. There is also variability based on season and the specific album company for your album, as I try to find albums for my clients that meet their style and budget.
