FAQ

What is your approach in photographing/filming weddings?

I am all about storytelling and the emotion presented at any given moment.

I will give general prompts when necessary and will capture formal portraits as requested but my main focus is about the authenticity and integrity of the events that unfold.

During our consultation, we will go over what kind of mood/style you want in to evoke in your images and video. I can do romantic, elegant, dramatic, playful/funny, flirty & steamy, light & airy, you name it and we'll make it happen!

Where are you based and do you travel?

I am located in North Canton, OH, but I can certainly travel to you to get those perfect shots! Depending on distance, there may be a travel fee. We can discuss this in our consult and everything will be outlined in the contract.

What gear do you use?

I understand that gear is no substitution for technique and knowledge, but professional grade cameras and gear can elevate great photos to stunning photos.

My main camera is a Sony A7riii with dual SD card slots. I also use a Panasonic G7 as another backup and to cover extra angles for video. The third camera I use is the DJI Pocket Gimbal 2 Camera mainly for capturing video.

For off camera flashes, I use Godox flashes with several flash modifiers (soft boxes, gels, grids, etc.) to adapt to various lighting situations.

Are you LGBTQ+ inclusive?

ABSOLUTELY! It always makes me so sad that this even has to be a question. I unmovingly believe love is not only everyone's right, but the very foundation of our humanity. Love is Love, and Love is Beautiful... If you have any questions, concerns, requests, etc. please do not hesitate to bring them up with me. My number one priority is to do everything in my power to make our time together a comfortable, joyous occasion.

How many images will I receive?

Clients usually receive around 50+ images per hour of shooting time in their gallery. So if you book a 90 minute session with me, you can expect about 75+ images in your gallery. Studio sessions include 15 images fully edited for professional use.

All images in your gallery can be downloaded at web-size (ideal for uploading to social media) for free. Options for purchasing prints and high-res digital downloads are also available.

Some packages include a predetermined number of complimentary digital images & prints.
When I send you your gallery of images, you can download and purchase prints directly through the gallery. If your package included 5 complimentary high-res digital downloads and 3 complimentary 8x10 prints, you can download any 5 images of your choosing for free and order the 3 prints for free in the gallery's shop section.

Please see details listed in the specific packages & feel free to contact me with any questions.

What is your turn around time?

For most services (excluding weddings), it takes between 4-8 weeks to deliver your complete gallery of all fully edited images.
Turn around times vary depending on the service you choose, the specific package you purchase, how many images your order, & the time of year your session takes place.

Expectations regarding turn around times will be outlined in our contract.

For Weddings: How many pictures will we receive?

Each wedding is unique and therefore the amount of photos captured will vary from wedding to wedding. On average, couples can expect to have around 50+ images per hour of coverage in your gallery.

So if you book me for 9 hours, you can expect to see about 450+ images in your gallery.

For Weddings: When will we receive our photos?

I know the excitement and eagerness to see your wedding photos so I will send you 5-7 fully edited, watermarked sneak peak pictures within 72 hours after your wedding day!

As for the rest of the photos, the turn around time will greatly vary depending on the time of year your wedding is.
For off season weddings, typical turn around time will be 8-10 weeks.
For weddings during wedding season, typical turn around time will usually be anywhere from 12-16 weeks depending on how booked I am. Details about these kinds of expectations will be discussed and outlined in our contract.

Please understand that takes lots of time to cull through all the photos, go through all the steps to create extra backups, color correct, edit them, and upload them to your personal gallery.

Remember, all good things come to those who wait! :)

For Weddings: What is a highlight video?

The highlight video of the day is a short video that is like a short summary of the day with the more significant clips of the wedding like the first look, walking down the aisle, part of the vows, first kiss, some portraits, audio clips of the toasts, first dance, and some dancing.

For Weddings: How will we receive our photos?

I will send you a link to your personal gallery of fully edited, high resolution images from your wedding day. You can view, download, & favorite your images and even order professional grade prints directly through the gallery!

At an additional cost, you can purchase an add-on of a USB stick with these files if you'd like!

For Weddings: How will we receive our videos?

A link to each of your fully edited, HD wedding videos will be sent to you to view, share, & favorite.

At an additional cost, you can purchase an add-on of a USB stick with these files if you'd like!

For Weddings: How do the wedding albums work?

All photography wedding packages include a complimentary 20 page photo album. You can pick & choose which images you'd like to be included in that album by marking your favorites within the gallery. I will design the album & send you the proof for your approval before sending it out to the lab to be made.

For Weddings: Do you offer payment plans?

Yes absolutely. I understand that weddings are a huge investment both time wise and monetarily.

Your wedding is supposed to be full of love and joy and excitement, and I don't want money to be a huge stress on you. We can talk about logistics in our consult and create the best payment plan for everyone.
