Q: Where are you located and what areas do you service?

A: I live in northern California but I will travel worldwide, to any location for no travel fee as well. Please feel free to inquire about your location.

Q: What is your photography style?

A:My Photography style is primarily modern & contemporary photojournalistic. I focus mainly on capturing real candid moments as they unfold and emotions as they unveil. For portraiture I focus on creative and modern shots, guiding subjects to a particular area and focusing on laughing and having fun opposed to posing subjects stiffly.

Q: What type of equipment do you use?

A:I use top of the line canon bodies and lenses. Currently I have 2 canon 5DMIII bodies and many Canon Professional L Series lenses.

Q: Are you equipped to shoot in low light venues?

A: I am equip with the best low light performance lenses that canon makes! In addition I have several on camera and off camera lighting solutions to add extra light to the venue if needed.

Q: Do you provide every photo that you capture?

A: I take a lot of photos, especially of the same scene. The purpose of this is to capture the best expression and the most emotion, so duplicates are left out of your final selection. Additionally, other photos are left out for miscellaneous reasons (flash didn’t fire etc).

Q: How many photos will we receive?

A: Clients receive the best of the best from the day. For a wedding that equates to about 40-50 images an hour and for portrait sessions that equates to about 30-40 images an hour. This is not a limit, just an average; you will get every single photo from your day that is great.

Q: Do you touch up all of the images that we receive?

A:Yes, I spend time going over every image you receive, making sure it is enhanced for optimal contrast, color, skin correction etc. In addition I can do some of your photos with special coloring or enhancements as you desire for NO extra charge.

Q: Will my images be compressed or watermarked & will they be RAW or JPG?

A: All images are shot in RAW then processed and are converted from RAW to JPG. They are not compressed at all. Therefore, you receive the highest quality photo, enabling you to make as many enlargements or large as you wish. The JPGs are high enough quality for you to make adjustments in photoshop without sacrificing quality. There are no watermarks on the photos that you will receive. RAW files are not released to the client, only processed JPG

Q: Will I receive the rights to my images?

A: You receive full printing rights to your images enabling you to print as many copies or enlargements for yourself or friends and family as you wish, post online, share with family and friends etc. The only things you may not do with your images is sell them or get compensation for them in any way, without my written permission.

Q: When will we receive our photos?

A: Time frame differs slightly dependent on time of year and scheduling but typically you will receive your wedding images in 2-3 weeks.

Q: Will you cover events other than weddings?

A: I would be delighted to cover any event including family reunions, anniversary parties,  bat mitzvahs, quinceaneras etc. Please contact me for a price.

Q: How do I reserve your services?

A: For weddings, to reserve your date, a signed contract with a 25% deposit is required. For portrait sessions, please send me an email to schedule an appointment.

Q: Can I pay with a credit card?

A: Check or cash is preferred but yes, I accept payments via papal, a 3% transaction fee applies.

Q: Is it possible to meet in person to discuss our event?

A: Meeting in person is defiantly an option if I am in your area. However, because the areas I service are so broad, sometimes I will not be able to meet face to face. In the event that I am unable to meet with you in person, a skype meeting can be arranged and should you like to see more of my work, I can always arrange you to view portfolios of full weddings via web galleries.

Q: Are you available for consultations during my wedding planning process?

A: I am always available for unlimited phone calls or emails and I love to help with any questions you may have during your planning including timelines, vendor referrals etc.

Q: How far in advance should I book?

A: I accept weddings bookings up to 12-18 months in advance dependent on the size of the wedding. Please book as soon as possible as I only accept 20 weddings per year.
