Frequently Asked Questions
(Last Updated July 2016)
How long have you been a photographer?
I've been working in photography for 5 years now with a decade+ of experience with visual art and design which contributes tremendously to capture my final image.
I can't book you because I am afraid you're too far away
No worries. I am a traveling photographer, and most photographers are too. I shoot all over New York, from all the way up in Buffalo all the way down to NYC. Traveling is not an issue, and the fees are built into the price.
Do you have assistants, second photographers available?
Equipment? What gear do you use? Do you have backup equipment?
I shoot Nikon. My lighting and several other accessories are different brands. I promise I am using professional equipment to successfully go through the day and provide you with quality images.
Insurance? What is that, this website says I am supposed to ask you?
Insurance protects both you and I, as well as my gear. We're covered. I have certificates for venue's that inquire about insurance.
About this list on "what to ask your photographer", it says I need to ask questions?
Ask away.. These lists were built by a lot of different brides. Most answers you may find here. If not, I am all ears, I will listen and answer any questions you may have.
Can I give you my shotlist?
Of course! Remember, I am yours for the day and will never stop shooting. Pinterest ideas are also welcome.
What is your style?
Style is something every person acquires differently. My goal is to provide you with a visual story of your day. Poses, and photos might look alike in many instances from different photographers. But it's the style that personalizes the image. My shooting style will make your photos pop out of the norm. I like to call myself a photojournalist. I tell your story throughout the day.
How many photos will I get?
There is no limit to the amount of photos I take within your coverage. I will not stop shooting, but the final amount of images will vary depending the size, location, length of the wedding. You should expect a minimum of 400 fully edited images.
My "photographers questions list" says to ask you for the negatives and ALL images
I do not supply the negatives, you hired me to edit these negatives with my style and liking. I will do just that and provide you with fully edited high resolution JPEG's with a print release.
When do I get all the final images?
A few sneak peeks will be sent at least 24-48 hours after the wedding. After editing and processing you should receive your images 4-8 weeks after your wedding day (during non peak season). If they are ready sooner, you will be notified. If your package includes an album, prints or specialty items, the work will begin as soon as your review the images and are ready for selection. Please allow 3-4 weeks for print once we finalized all specialty items.
Do you edit or retouch/enhance the images?
All final photos are fully edited. That means they will be exposure and color corrected. You will receive all your images in full standard color, black and whites can be added to your final disc for no additional fees. Color effects can be applied to selected images as well. Depending on the package selected you will get a certain amount of photos that can be selected for post production.
The copyright of the images ALWAYS remains with the photographer, but I license my clients the right to produce the images in any way you wish. The only thing you cannot do with the images is use them for commercial re-sale. I promise I will not sell your images either. Portfolio/Showcasing is all I use them for.
I love your work, and I think you are the photographer I want for my wedding. How can I book you?
