FAQ

Your wedding can be the most exciting time of your life. I do everything I can to make sure your experience with me is anything but stressful so you can focus on enjoying your big day. I've compiled a list of questions I'm frequently asked by my clients to help guide you. If you have further questions, feel free to reach out!

What’s your style?

Fun and relaxed! Oh, you mean those fancy terms… I tend toward a photojournalistic style with an artistic flair. I love being creative and using natural and artificial light to create unique effects.

Tell us more about your pricing and packages.

On average, most couples spend around $4000 with me, but I have packages to suit most budgets. Six hours of coverage starts at $3200. Contact me and I’ll be happy to send over a price list or quote!

Where are you located? Will you travel for our wedding?

I’m based in Washington D.C., but of course, anything within the DMV area is included in my travel region. If your wedding is out-of-state (or out-of-country!) don’t let that stop you. I love to travel! Destination weddings and elopements are some of my favorites.

How do we book you?

I ask for a contract and a $1000 deposit to confirm your date, then the balance is due two weeks before the wedding. If you want to make payments, that is always an option.

How soon after the wedding will we see our photos?

My contract states 4-6 weeks but it’s often less time than that! Usually, you’ll get a sneak peek on my blog within a week or two of your wedding. Engagement photo turnaround is 1-2 weeks.

Do you have an assistant? Second Photographer? What’s the difference?

Many of my packages include a second photographer, which I absolutely recommend for weddings with more than 150 guests. The second shooter is always a full-time professional photographer, and usually someone I work with regularly. For weddings where I am the only photographer, I will sometimes bring an assistant if I deem it necessary (at no cost to you.) An assistant doesn’t shoot, he or she simply carries my bag, moves my lights, and helps out with whatever is needed.

How many photos do we get?

A lot! I never put a number on how many I capture or deliver, but a good average is about 700 for a wedding and 70-100 for an engagement shoot.
