HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?
You can expect a minimum of 50 per hour of photography coverage.
My turnaround time is 6-8 weeks for one-day weddings and 8-12 weeks for multi-day weddings.
WILL WE RECEIVE DIGITAL FILES?
Yes! You will receive your images through an online digital gallery which will allow you to share, send and download all of your photographs.
Can we print ourselves?
You will receive a print release so you can print wherever you deem best. If you do not currently have a pro lab, you have the option of purchasing prints through your online digital gallery. Albums are ordered through me and go through a short design process with a turnaround of about one month.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Honest. Immersive. Daring.
DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF ARIZONA?
Yes. Travel within the continental US is included when booking 8+ hours of coverage. Contact me for international travel pricing. **Special rates available for weddings in the UK.
WHAT GEAR DO YOU USE?
I dual shoot with two Canon R6s and a Canon 5d Mark IV with various Canon lenses: 16-35mm, 24mm tilt-shift, 35mm, 45mm tilt-shift, 50mm, 85mm, and 135mm. I also use a mixture of Godox flashes, Aputure continuous lights, and the occasional use of a Westcott Ice light.
CAN I HAVE IMAGES IN BOTH COLOR AND BLACK & WHITE?
During the editing process I will choose either color or black and white for each image based on my professional knowledge of what works best.
WHO ARE YOUR SECOND SHOOTERS?
I cannot give you the second shooters name ahead of time since I work with a few different photographers and only confirm their availability about 1 month before your wedding day. Just trust me that someone I think is pretty stellar with be there.
Should i book a second shooter?
A second shooter allows me to be in two places at the same time which, in return, allows me to deliver more images for a well-rounded story.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DIE?
Well, I mean, usually people package it like, "What if you can't make it to the wedding?" But let's be real... if I'm not there, it's more than a migraine. So what happens? Well, my friends would 100% rally around my family, that's for sure. Some of my closest friends (also amazing photographers) have created back-up plans for each other. They have access to my studio management software, know what I still need to accomplish, what is coming up and what needs to be delivered. If something happens and I cannot make it to your wedding, they will be the first to know and have all they need to contact an equally amazing photographer who meets or exceeds my standards to photograph your wedding. Your contract states that my business is responsible for finding you someone FIRST. If that cannot happen and you do not approve of the replacement photographer, you are also able to get a full refund and seek out your own photographer.
Ok, can we move onto something way more fun to talk about?
DO YOU USE FLASH?
Yes, at the reception I will use either off-camera flash lighting OR video lights for toasts and dances-- unless your reception events take place before sunset.
Off-camera lighting gives me control and assurance your important moments will be beautifully lit!
I AM NOT PHOTOGENIC.
I have seen it said that "authentic is the new photogenic" and I love that! Listen, if you are wanting me to turn you into some covergirl model, I may not be the right photographer for you. Now, I hope you feel extra beautiful and my images help you to see your beauty, but I will NOT make you into someone you're not. Ever. I want you to be the truest you: your quirks, crooked smile, that silly laugh you get when your husband looks at you. My goal is to create authentically beautiful images. You know, just don't worry about how you look at all. Let me figure it out and just know that your comfort is my #1 goal, too.
HAVE YOU SHOT AT MY VENUE BEFORE?
I get this question from concerned brides who are afraid I will not know how to handle their venue and it's limitations. Every venue has limitations, for sure, but it is actually not necessary for me to know them beforehand. The only thing I will need to know is when the sun is setting, something that doesn't change regardless of your venue.
I also have found that I work best on-the-fly as it forces me to think on my feet and create images I have never seen or done before.
CAN YOU RECOMMEND SOME OTHER VENDOR?
Heck yes! Please, ask me! One of the best things about being saturated into the wedding photography community is that I am now friendors (friend + vendors) with some of the most talented people! Here are some of my favorites sure to make your wedding the best Phoenix/Scottsdale has to offer:
