How long does it take to receive my photos?
I currently have an 4 week turnaround time, but I always provide preview images as soon as the next day following the shoot/session.
Will there be a second shooter?
I most often shoot solo, but depending on the scope of the session and what is involved, my assistant or a second photographer can be or will be provided at an additional charge.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
Of course! For any additional coverage going beyond the packages listed above, I charge an hourly rate of $250.
What kind of gear do you use?
While on location, my camera bag will unveil mainly Cannon gear. I have my camera body itself, 3 different lenses to capture near and far (perfect for those blurred out focused shots that always pack a punch), USB and memory cards, external flash drives, tripod, and multiple batteries and battery pack to stay charged throughout the duration of the event, shoot, or session. I also pack a few reflectors and lighting diffusers.
In addition to all that, while in-studio we have several reflectors, box kits, studio strobes, trigger lights, and so much more.
Do I have to order prints through you?
I allow my clients to print on their own, but I do offer my own printing packages if you choose to go through me.
