Do you work with a second photographer?
A second photographer/assistant is a part of all wedding packages, except for the Petite Package. I find it important to make sure that there are two sets of eyes on everything so no part of your important day is missed!
Where do you live and how far will you travel?
I live in the Tacoma area and am willing to travel as far as you would like! Up to 30 miles from Tacoma is included in your package and beyond that it is $1 per mile. If travel time is farther than 2 hours from Seattle or Tacoma then overnight accommodations are needed. Planning a destination wedding? Contact me today for a custom quote.
We want to go hike a mountain for our wedding, do we need a permit?
It depends on the location but I would be happy to help you investigate.
Do you come to the rehearsal?
I would be happy to come to your rehearsal and that can be added onto your package by simply adding hourly coverage.
Do you offer engagement sessions?
How do you deliver our images?
Whether you’re one of my portrait clients or couples getting married, I deliver your photos the same way: through an online password protected gallery. This viewing/delivery gallery allows you to share them on social media, and download images.
How much editing do you do to my images?
All my images get color corrections and some light touch ups if needed. My goal is always to make the image look as close as possible to how the scene looked to our eyes. If more drastic changes are needed, it is available for an additional fee.
Can I get every image you took?
After shooting your session, wedding or event I go through and edit down your images to the professional standard that I give to my clients for a final product. Images that don’t make this standard include: closed eyes, bad smiles, out of focus images and duplicates. You’ll get the rest!
What about the RAW files or negatives? Can I have those?
RAW files or negatives are not available at this point in time. Most people do not have the software to open the RAW files and also I take great pride in the final product that I provide you and want to keep the images as consistent and high quality as possible.
How long does it take for me to get my images?
I love sharing images as I work through your session or wedding, so you will always get a few sneak peeks from me on the day of or a couple days following your session or wedding. For your final set of images, my turnaround time for portraits is two weeks and weddings are four to eight weeks.
Will I have print rights to my photos?
All my clients receive a print release from me giving you the rights to print your images for personal use only. This release will allow you to print your images at any printing service or print house in the world as you desire. This does not include editing or altering your final images you receive.
Where do you recommend getting our images printed?
I always recommend ordering prints directly with me. A print house I recommend that the general public can order from is Mpix.com- their quality is great. Alternatively, printing through Costco’s online service. Places I DO NOT recommend: any print station located inside an actual store, Rite Aid, Walmart or Shutterfly. These locations use cheap paper and their machines are not calibrated for correct color.
