Q: How do you describe your style?
A: Creative. Modern. Fresh. Fun. Photojournalistic. Personal. Sweet. Candid. I’ll shoot most of the wedding day photo journalistically. I will be capturing moments as they happen and when they happen. When it comes to the bride/groom photos, I will help direct and pose to create images that are unique, creative, relaxed, and fun.
Q: What makes you different from other photographers?
A: My work is unique because I love to photograph couples doing what they love to do together in places they enjoy being at. What comes out of my work ultimately stems from my clients personalities. So it's actually you that makes me different because you're unique and so should your photographs. Also, I have a unique style of interacting with my couples so that they feel 100% comfortable which is how all the expressions in my work look so genuine.
Q: What is the turnaround time?
A: For weddings about 1 month; for engagement sessions usually about 1-2 weeks depending on the season.
Q: How long have you been shooting?
A: I have been shooting weddings for about ten years and have photographed approximately over 200 weddings.
Q: What kind of gear do you have? Do you shoot jpeg or RAW?
A: I use Canon 5d IV's with Canon L lenses, and shoot in RAW.
Q: Do you have another photographer with you at the wedding?
A: Most definitely. All my packages come with two photographers myself and another associate shooter.
Q: How long are the engagement sessions? Where should we have the engagement sessions?
A: Usually about two and a half to three hours, sometimes they’ll go longer depending on locations or traffic etc. I recommend having your engagement session somewhere where it’s meaningful such as the first date spot, the proposal spot, etc. etc. If you don’t have anything in mind, I’ll help you brainstorm.
Q: Do you charge a travel fee?
A: Not for Los Angeles or Orange County, but for Santa Barbara, San Diego and beyond yes.
Q: Do you shoot destination weddings?
A: Yes! These are my favorite. If I could, I'd shoot these all day every day. There are plenty of galleries of weddings around the world in my website. Please check them out! Please contact me directly through about destination wedding pricing!
Q: Will you dance with us on the dance floor? How much extra is that?
A: I probably will, and it’s free of charge.
Q: Do you have insurance?
A: Yes, I do. I can present a COI that covers the standard minimum that venues typically require vendors to have.
Q: How do we book with you?
A: Contact me through the contact page of my website, then meet to talk about your wedding, and lastly we sign a contract. The deposit is 1/3rd of the total, and the balance is due two weeks before your wedding.
