Q: I would like you to shoot my wedding, how do I start the process?
A: Reach me via my contact form along with your wedding date and venue, if secured. I can respond by email or phone. If possible, I would like to meet you both in person so you can get to know your future photographer and can ask me everything you need. Once you’ve decided to choose me as your photographer, there is a contract for you to sign and return with a deposit. After that, you can check “find a photographer” off your wedding to-do list.
Q: What does a wedding session cost?
A: My packages start at $2100 for 8 hours of coverage. Contact me for a full rate sheet and details. If you are doing something very simple, or only need me for a few hours, shoot me an email and we can find something that will work for everyone.
Q: How much do I need to deposit?
A: I require a 50% initial deposit and the rest of the fee to be paid one week before the wedding day.
Q: How far should we book in advance?
A: Typically as soon as you have a date and venue. If you’re not the plan way in the advance type of guy or gal, fret not. Check with me for availability.
Q: Will you be shooting the wedding?
A: Yes. You are hiring me to shoot the wedding, not another photographer working under my name.
Q: Do you shoot with an assistant?
A: I typically do use an assistant or 2nd shooter depending on the needs of your particular wedding.
Q: Where are you based?
A: I am based in London, Ontario, but I am available to travel just about anywhere your dream wedding takes you.
Q: When should we do the wedding portraits?
A: This is mostly up to you, but usually a couple of hours before the ceremony or immediately following the ceremony. Shooting before the ceremony allows you to check one more thing off the day’s to-do list early on and, more importantly, to afford you and the wedding party a chance to enjoy the cocktail hour and mingle with your guests. Shooting after the ceremony, depending on the time, could allow you to take advantage of the setting sun and its softer light.
Q: Do you take getting-ready shots?
A: These are some of my favorite photographs to capture. They are great for telling the story of your wedding day for your album.
Q: Do you shoot in RAW?
A: Yes. RAW allows me to get the best quality and image detail when I am processing the photos.
Q: When will I get to see my wedding photos?
A: Your photos will generally be ready within 2-4 weeks following the wedding. I go through a careful process of choosing the best images from the day and processing each of them with individual attention.
Q: Do you shoot video?
A: Unfortunately, to focus my attention on the photography, I cannot do both at once myself.
Q: Do you offer albums?
A: Yes. The wedding album is the focal point of my products, and I try to offer them in all my packages. This is the best way to view your wedding images.
Q: Who chooses the photographs in the album?
A: I will have your album completely designed for you when you get your digital images. When you get home and have a chance to look over all your pictures you will be able to make any changes you you feel necessary. Doing it this way allows for the quickest turn-around time and still giving you a say on what goes into the final product.
