What areas do you work in?
My home is San Diego, California. However, I'm able to travel for weddings all over Southern and Northern California as well as anywhere else in the US and overseas.
How would you define your photography style?
I classify myself as a portrait, commercial and journalistic wedding photographer. I capture the moments as they happen while remaining non-intrusive, photographing the essence and emotion of those moments. This allows me to shoot photographs that are tailored to each moment and detail of the wedding. I love using my off-camera lighting sometimes to add a dramatic flair to the photographs.
I really love your work! What is required for booking?
To reserve a date, I simply require a signed contract and a retainer payment. Wedding Collections can also be upgraded to include additional coverage or products at any point after the date is reserved.
Do you offer wedding photography books?
Yes I do. I do work with an amazing company based in the US that specializes in high end, handmade flash mount books. We work together throughout the wedding book design process to insure that your final book is of the highest quality.
How far in advance should I book my wedding day?
I typically get inquiries for wedding photography about a year or more from the scheduled date. However, it can vary depending upon the couple and my schedule. If I am needed as soon as the following week and I am available, I'm happy to photograph your wedding.
Do you photograph in both black and white and color?
Yes, I take all my shots in color then convert select photographs to black and white after the wedding day. This is a better way to give me full control in the digital dark room. I use a customized black & white conversion that I created, which gives my B&W photographs a very unique look and feel.
When should I schedule my engagement session?
Engagement sessions are typically booked 6 to 9 months before your wedding date, but it varies depending on the couple and their schedule. Of course, this is just a rough guideline and the season or overall feel you want generally is most important.
When do we get our proofs and/or photos back from the wedding?
Your photos will be available for viewing no later than 8 weeks after your wedding date. Depending on the season, most of the time I am able to get them to you well in advance of that timeframe.
My venue requires photographers to have proof of insurance, do you have any?
This is a great question! Yes, Yes, Yes!!!
How can my friends and family see the wedding, bridal or engagement photography?
As a part of my service, I post images onto a Client Gallery for your review. Your friends & family can view these photos as well as place an order if they so desire with a password I will provide you with.
