Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is your photographic style?
A: I emphasize on creating photos that tell stories that are unique, eye-catching, and engaging. I love capturing both natural candid moments mixed with directed and posed photography that are meaningful to the viewer. Creative lighting and post-production are used to accentuate our client's best.

Q: Why should you hire us?
A: If you're checking out my website then I hope my photos have caught your eye! In addition to my unique photography style, we only accept a limited number of engagements and weddings per year. The reason for this is that we believe in taking the time to know our clients needs and producing quality photographs instead of turning over client after client like other photographers. In addition to being photographers, we are artists that take the time to create stunning photos that matter to you. Having Professional Photographs taken are a valuable investment in that the moment will never be exactly recreated again. That is why it's so important to hire someone with experience and can get the job done right, so you can have keepsakes that last the test of time.

Q: Can you travel for my engagement photos? Do you do destination weddings?
A: Absolutely! I'm based in Northern California but have traveled from coast to coast for clients. I welcome the opportunity to shoot in new locations. Shoot me an email or click the contact tab and let's chat!

Q: Can you shoot my concert/corporate event/convention/festival?
A: Yes, I have shot many! I enjoy capturing the festive spirit of these events, from the performers and staff to the attendees. Check my portfolio to see examples.

Q: What kind of gear do you use? Do you shoot in JPEG or RAW?
A: We use only professional cameras bodies, lenses, and light/stands for our shoots. We have shot in the darkest of churches, bright overcast sun, and even in rain conditions. We are prepared for any situation that might occur because we've been there and done it. Every image is shot in RAW format. This lends the most flexibility and yields the highest quality images. Delivered photos will be high resolution JPEGs.

Q: How many hours should we set aside for photos?
A: Portrait sessions and Engagement sessions typically run around 1-2 hours. Sometimes it can run over since the photography process is an art and setup, posing can take longer than expected. There is no extra charge for sessions that run over time. I believe in getting the job done right, not rushing through. If you're on a tight schedule, then it's safe to plan extra time. 

Q: How long does it take to get our images?
A: For Engagement sessions it's typically not longer than a week and many times much sooner. I work on every image taken to deliver the best possible photos. Weddings involve taking and processing a substantial amount  more photos and therefore require around 4-6 weeks to insure the best possible images. Concert and Event photos are typically turned around in 1-2 days, or even sooner.

Q: What packages do you offer for Engagement sessions? Weddings?
A: Engagement sessions start at $250. Weddings start at $2,499.  Please contact me for a list of current packages and descriptions or event rate.

Q: How can I reserve you for our date?
A: Send me an email or message so I can confirm the availability. Once that's settled we're ready to get started!
