6 // WHEN DO I GET MY IMAGES? DO YOU OFFER DIGITALS AND ALBUMS?
For regular sessions, it takes 3-4 weeks to edit your final images. For weddings, it takes approximately three months (or less). I provide a select number of digital photos to you as part of the contract and do offer a variety of high-end albums. Ever watched movies where electricity goes out, or laptops/iPads and smart devices go obsolete? Well if you only keep your images in a hard drive, then there goes your photos! That's why I am big on albums. I offer beautiful leather, linen, and unique photo covers. The digital images will be delivered via an online password protected gallery. You can order prints through the gallery, and with one click you can download your images. Please make sure to backup your photos! The link to the gallery can be easily shared with family and friends, or post your favorites on Facebook and other social media.
7 // DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE AND WHAT GEAR DO YOU USE FOR OUR SHOOT?
As a professional photographer, I do carry insurance. No one in their right mind would be a professional photographer without one. I also use professional Canon equipment including Mark IIIs and IV, prime and zoom "L" lenses and professional off-camera lighting equipment. Only the best to capture your memories!
8 // DO YOU REQUIRE A RETAINER TO HOLD THE DATE?
Yes, a 50% non-refundable retainer fee is due immediately to book and hold the wedding/session date. After receiving the correspondence with the invoice, you can easily pay the non-refundable retainer with PayPal, or you can notify me you're sending cash or a certified check, which must be received before the date is booked. I capture a limited number of weddings per year to ensure I focus on each couple, so I do not photograph multiple weddings on the same day or even a weekend. It's essential that I am on top of my game when it comes to your wedding. I offer a payment plan for the remaining 50% balance to help ease the payment process (especially for weddings) with the remaining 25% due 90 days before the marriage and the final 25% due 30 days before the wedding. I accept cash, certified checks, Visa, MC, Amex, and PayPal.
9 // DO YOU OFFER CINEMATOGRAPHY SERVICES?
I focus on photography, but I have partnered with Godfather Films and their team of professional cinematographers who will capture "moments for a lifetime" that will surely take your breath away! If they are not available, I will happily refer you to other cinematographers.
10// DO YOU OFFER PHOTO BOOTH?
Yes again! Our photo booth is an open air sleek design, allowing up to 10+ people to get in the photo. The luxurious look of our photo booth blends well with any wedding and corporate events. We offer props and backdrop and need about 11 -12 feet wide and 9-10 feet deep from the background to the camera. There's a printing option with customized 4x6 photo strips, touchscreen monitor (guests can see themselves in the live view and use the interface to take photos), online gallery (guests can view all the images 2-3 days after the event), PLUS my Photo Booth comes standard with guests being able to upload their just photographed picture to their personal Facebook page or email! This is done through the iPad touchscreen (external kiosk). So long as the venue has wifi or I'm able to use our hotspot, guests can get immediate results and show how much they're having a great time at a wedding and any event. There's also a green screen option.
