Your Questions Answered
I’VE never been married before. Where do I start?
Choosing your wedding photographer can be overwhelming. Thankfully, I’m here to guide you through the process. Here’s a rough timeline of how it works.
You call me. (ring ring: 717-798-2834) We connect over the phone.
We set up an in-person consultation where we discuss your vision for your wedding day and I’ll show you my beautiful hand-crafted albums and prints.
It’s a match! I just need a deposit to secure your wedding day.
You book your engagement shoot – a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera and create beautiful images for your save-the-dates and sign-in book.
We stay in contact over the next few months. I’ve got all the details so we don’t miss a single shot.
The big day arrives! You marry your best friend and I’m there to capture every moment so you can treasure them for the rest of your life.
While you’re off on your honeymoon, I’m preparing your images so every single one is perfect.
With your feet back on earth, you get to relive your wedding day through a stunning slideshow. It’s going to be hard to choose your favorites, but don’t worry. I’ll help you pick out the best images for your album, art for your wall, and prints to give your friends.
I put the finishing touches on your album and prints and send them off to my professional lab. A few weeks later, you pick them up, hang them proudly in your home and share they with your friends.
How would you describe your style?
My images are vibrant and exuberant, with a bit of whimsy and romance. I celebrate all the joyous moments and the quiet ones in between.
What type of equipment do you use?
I use professional Canon digital SLR cameras. I have a variety of lenses, flashes, and lighting equipment to capture the perfect image in every situation. Most importantly, I have backups of all that equipment, so if even if an ELEPHANT DROPS FROM THE SKY and smashes my camera, I will continue to capture your wedding as if nothing happened (though I might cry a little inside).
How long have you been shooting weddings?
I shot my first wedding for one of my best friends in 2006. I started my business after I graduated from American University in 2009.
Are you going to be the center of attention on my wedding day?
This is your day and I’m here to make sure you enjoy it to the fullest. I will work with you and your other vendors including your wedding planner and DJ to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible.
I’m easygoing. You can count on my to stay calm when you’re running late or forgot the rings or everyone else is stressing out around you. You are getting married today, to your best friend, in front of everyone you love.
I will never interrupt an important moment.
That being said, there are certain moments when I need to take control, herding errant bridesmaids and groomsmen for group portraits or helping you pose in a natural way that will accentuate your best features.
How far in advance do I need to book you?
Most of my couples book their weddings at least six months to a year before the big day. Obviously, the earlier you contact me, the better the chance that I still have your date available.
Can I give you a list of specific shots we would like?
Certainly. I would love to collaborate with you to make sure I capture everything you envisioned, especially if there are details of your wedding that may be uncommon. However, each wedding is unique and you can never predict exactly how the day will unfold. The lighting, subjects and location will never be the same as an image you found on Pintrest and trying to fit your dynamics into a cookie-cutter mold doesn’t always work out. I’ve shot many weddings and know how to anticipate the important moments. I don’t need an exhaustive list to tell me to capture your first kiss. I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Please trust me to capture all the important moments and details that make your day unique.
What information do you need from me?
I will call you a few weeks before your wedding to go over all the last-minute details and make sure I have a complete timeline of your day.
May i have a list of references?
Of course! I would love to give you one when I meet you for your consultation. Give me a call at 717-798-2834 to set up an appointment today.
