FAQ

What's my approach?

I’m there to document genuine moments as they naturally happen. For the majority of the day, I stay very hands off, focusing 100% on the story. You won’t find me asking your friends to recreate moments, but you will find me ready to capture those moments before they even happen.

During portraits, it’s a little different. I give plenty of direction, working to bring creative ideas and new photography techniques to make images that are unique. Though I do direct during portraits my intentions are to capture candid moments to give you honest, natural photos.

My goal at every wedding is to develop new photographic ideas no one has ever before seen. If that’s something that excites you, we’ll be a perfect fit.

WHAT ARE THE DELIVERABLES?

You get all the edited files in high resolution JPEG format. Easily downloadable with no watermarks via an online gallery. Take a look at the full sample albums below to get an idea about what those look like.

DO I NEED A SHOT LIST?

Nope! 1.5 months before the wedding you’ll receive a questionnaire with everything I need to know about your wedding plans. Included in that is the only shot list I ask for – the groupings for family photos. There are recommendations about what people normally do and an area to fill in what’s unique to your family.

WHAT'S THE DEPOSIT?

$1,000 non refundable deposit to own the date. I have a policy of booking with whoever first submits their contract and pays the retainer for an inquired date.

HOW DO WE BOOK?

After we’ve talked about which package works best for your wedding I’ll send along a formal proposal with the contract and payment information in a custom online portal.

WHAT ARE YOUR ALBUMS LIKE?

I’m glad you asked! There’s some information HERE about that, and you can read below about what packages include albums.

The second shooter is a great option for larger or more logistically complicated weddings, and I only work with professional photographers that I trust and who’s images are given to me for safe keeping and editing right along with my own. An album is the best way to experience your wedding day with a curated story that will last for generations – in a hand made extremely high quality art piece. (If you need more coverage time, you can always add unlimited coverage).

(If you need more coverage time, you can always add unlimited coverage).

2nd Photographer

Let me start by saying that I photograph most weddings by myself, however sometimes it just makes logistical sense to have a second photographer. I can’t be in two places at the same time and if you want photos of getting ready in two totally different locations, or you want lots of detail photos during cocktail hour while we’re out taking photos – a second photographer is the best way to go about it.

  • add $750
  • I only use professionals that I trust and who's style and approach is similar to my own
  • All images are given to me for safe keeping and edited for delivery right along with my own

Unlimited Coverage

Though 8 hours of coverage is usually the perfect amount for most weddings… sometimes you need more. If you’re planning a particularly eventful day or just don’t want to think about it then this add-on has me there as long as you want.

  • add $1000
  • I'm available as early as you'd like all the way to midnight.
  • Perfect for very lengthy wedding days when you don't want to think about the timeline at all.

Makeup

I am incredibly fortunate to have a wife who is a professional makeup artist. She has been in the business longer than I've been photographing weddings. She offers both, traditional and airbrush makeup (and she's pretty amazing). See her work at moyamakeup.com.

  • Starting at $395
  • Makeup for bride and 3 bridemaids on the wedding day
  • Trial included!

Albums

Often, the experience of seeing your photos actually printed in a physical/tangible form can be forgotten about. It’s an important factor to consider when you’re thinking about what you truly want out of your wedding photos. Sometimes it’s just a totally different feeling to pull out a wedding album than it is to boot up your computer. To look at ink instead of pixels. To hold the memories of your day in your hands… without any need for an outlet.

  • Starting at $1200
  • Every album is created by me with custom designed layouts. You can be as involved or not as you’d like in the whole process so you have the perfect way to remember your incredible day.
  • Various sizes and cover colors are available, and a more affordable linen cover.

Unplugged

I started offering discounts for unplugged weddings since noticing a huge spike in tablets and phone cameras at nearly every wedding over the last few years. We can talk in more detail in person about it, but I’ve found it’s a win-win with your guests being more focused on the start of your marriage and me being able to photograph moments of people laughing and hugging instead of pointing at screens.

  • You make a best effort attempt to ask your guests to put their devices away until after the ceremony (reception is totally fine for selfies!)
  • I give you a $100 discount on any package you book with me.
