FAQ


Do you offer custom pricing?

If you have anything you don’t want in a package, budget issues, and additional requests - book a FREE consultation and I will do my best to serve you the best package for your wedding needs!


Do you offer discounts, sales, etc…?

Yes! I offer a referral program which gives you a 15% discount on ANY PACKAGE when you refer someone and they book my services! This offer also applies to any packages you’ve already paid for within the year! If someone you referred books a wedding package with me within the year, I will reimburse you 15%!


I have additional requests that are not included in your package, is there anything you can do?

Yes, if there are any additional requests such as photo booths, albums, prints, just book a FREE consultation and I will do my best to serve you the best package for your wedding needs!


How will I receive my photos?

Clients will receive their photos via a web link that will lead you to an online gallery of all the photos. You will be given a password to enter this gallery.


Do you offer the RAW files to your clients?

I, unfortunately do not :(


I will be having an unconventional/cultural wedding, how will you adjust to that?

I've rarely photographed a standard wedding - most weddings will have a special touch and I absolutely encourage it! As for cultural weddings, I’ve worked frequently with Jewish, Indian and Chinese weddings and am grateful to have the opportunity to learn different cultures through my work. As a photographer, we learn to adapt to different lighting, venues, locations and utilize what is given to us in our environment to provide the best shots possible - I would love to attend any unconventional/cultural wedding :)


When can we expect to receive our wedding day photos?

Photo deliverable times vary depending on how many photos are included in the deliverable.


The general structure will be as follows:


100 - 150 photos: NEXT DAY DELIVERABLE

150-250 photos: TWO WEEK DELIVERABLE

250-450 photos: FOUR WEEK DELIVERABLE

450+ photos: SIX TO EIGHT WEEK DELIVERABLE


When can we expect to receive our engagement shoot photos?

Engagement shoot photos will be given one week prior to the wedding date! If you request that it arrives sooner, just send me an email!


Can a package’s coverage hours be spread through more than one day?

Yes, it is possible to split a package’s coverage hour time between two days but additional costs will incur such as travel accommodations and availability will vary!


How does an additional hour charge work?

Additional hours will be charged by rounding the time for every increment of 30 minutes, if the photographer stays an extra 20 minutes, that counts as half an additional hour. If the photographer stays for 40 minutes, that also counts as half an additional hour!


Why is wedding photography so expensive?

Wedding photography is a lot more work than it may seem! The pressure to get that perfect shot before it's gone is REAL.


Here is a general work breakdown structure of a photographer’s job from beginning to end.


Pre-wedding

• Consultation

• Prepare Contract

• Deal with payment and invoice

• Preparations for the second consultation          

• Create a mood board
