Do you reserve the right to publish our photos?

I prefer to; however, this is negotiable. I respect your privacy and I will never insist on retaining any right to publish photos of you. Publishing your photos is advertising material for getting potential clients. But I hope you’ll agree that your photos are amazing enough to share!


Is a wedding album included?

Albums are not included in the packages. 


Do we need to feed you and your second photographer at our reception?

Weddings make for a very long day. My second photographer and I are working usually since earlier in the day until late. Feeding us is very much appreciated and recommended…just so that no one faints during all the festivities.


Do you back up all of our photos?

During your wedding day, my camera backs up every image to a second card to ensure proper back up while shooting. After your wedding, I download your photos to 2 different hard-drives ( RAID). Images stay on the 2 memory cards until i deliver your wedding.  I keep a full-resolution gallery on an external hard-drive, and, your gallery serves as the second backup. Your USB is another. I strongly recommend that you also create one more USB backup in case you misplace the original. 


Can you hold our date for a couple weeks?

Unfortunately the only fair way I’ve found is to give dibs to the couple that puts down their retainer first. In some cases I can hold a date for a couple days.


Your photos are amazing, how do we book you and pay?

 Once you decided im the right photographer for your big day, you’ll receive a contract via email, read and sign the contract and make the retainer payment.
