Weddings

The opportunity to photograph a wedding is a privilege. I get to tell a beautiful, personal story of love with my camera. These stories are important. They document the day that two become one. These stories are lovely, emotional, joyful and exciting. On your day I become immersed in the telling of your story. I find the beauty in all of the different moments of the day, from the big obvious moments to the tiniest of details. I tell the story of you and the loved ones you have chosen to support and celebrate with you. I stand back and document all the moments that I can. I would love to be there to tell the story of your day from start to finish.

The Process

Wedding Photography is Very Personal

Let's Get To Know Each Other

It's all about telling your story, the story of one of the most special days in your life. Before we do anything else I would like to set up a time when we can chat on the phone. This way you can get a feel for my personality while allowing me to answer any questions you may have. It is important that you feel comfortable with me, after all I am going to be capturing some of the most intimate moments of your day.

If extra coverage is needed on the day of the wedding

Every now and again wedding days run past the expected time. If you decide you would like me to stay to capture right up to the last moment I can do that. However, in order for that to happen I need you to understand that I will invoice you after your wedding for $75 per hour. You will be charged for the entire hour even if I have only stayed for 10 extra minutes. For example if I'm to leave at 8:00 pm but you ask me to stay until you leave and you don't leave until 10:05 pm I will send you an invoice for $150. No pictures will be release until the final invoice has been paid.

FAQ

How far do you travel for weddings?

I generally stay in the areas of Fredericksburg, Stafford, Spotsylvania and Culpeper in Virginia. I will travel to other localities in Virginia as well.

Is there an additional Charge if my wedding is outside of you local area?

I do not charge travel or mileage fees if you are in the state of Virginia. However if your wedding is 2 or more hours outside of the 22508 area code (which will be determined by Google Maps) we will require an overnight stay at a hotel local to the wedding site that will be added to you your wedding coverage fee.

Do you offer a CD of images in any of your collections?

No, the cool kids don't use CD's anymore. However, all of my collections include an online gallery that you will be able to download your images from directly.

What can I expect to spend on my wedding package?

Wedding day collections begin at $799

How many photographers come on my wedding day?

One for all of the collections except the diamond collection. If you would like a second photographer that can be arranged for an additional fee.

If I don't want something that's included in a collection can I remove it?

This probably won't happen, but if there is something that you really don't want then we can work to try to substitute it with an item that you would rather have that is similar in price

What if we don't want the engagement session, do we get a discount?

No. This is a complimentary session that I offer for the purpose of getting to know you better and getting you comfortable in front of me and my camera before the wedding day. If you choose not to take advantage of it there is no discount on your wedding day collection.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Debit, Credit, Cash

How much is the deposit?

The retainer fee is 25% of the total price of your collection. The remainder can be broken down into monthly payments or paid in full 7 days prior to the wedding.

Do you offer a military discount?

Yes. A 5% discount of the total collection will be offered to military, first responders, and teachers with proper I.D. (one discount per couple)

Do you offer payment plans?

Of course. We can work out as many payments as you need leading up to your wedding day. We will set a date each month that I will send you an invoice for payment with the final payment being due 7 days prior to your wedding date.

Can we chat before I book?

Absolutely. We can chat on the phone, through facebook video chat, skype, facetime if you have iPhone, or we can meet in person at the local Starbucks.

Do we give you a "shot list"

No & Yes. I shoot weddings in documentary style, meaning that I stand back and let the moments happen, I do not manufacture the moments. Having a "shot list" will only slow me down and cause me to miss moments. That said, if you are wanting formal family photos done I highly suggest you create a list of exactly which groupings you want done and get that list to me BEFORE you create your timeline so that I can let you know exactly how much time will be necessary to complete your list.

Is it cheaper if I get the unedited images and edit them myself?

Editing is part of what makes my style mine and part of the reason my clients hire me. I do not release unedited images.

Will I be able to see the images that didn't get edited?

I do not release unedited images. The images that are selected for your gallery are selected because they meet my standards of my final product. Please know that if an image does not make to your gallery then it was either a duplicate, very similar to another photo, or truly an outtake. If it didn't make the cut then it is deleted from my hard drives and gone forever.

How many pictures do we get?

It is usually about 50 - 75 images per hour

Will you hold my date for me?

I can not hold a date without a retainer fee and a signed contract. If someone else contacts me for you date and they are ready to pay then they will get the booking
