Your questions are important.
How would you describe your style?
I'm definitely a laid-back photographer. I like to photograph those real, candid moments as they happen, and I prefer natural light. My goal is to capture the beauty of life and the in-between moments that too often go over-looked.
How long does it usually take to get my photos?
Depends. If it's a large endeavor, like a wedding, typically 4-6 weeks. For something smaller, like an engagement shoot, probably a week. I do my best to make sure there is a fast turn-around time. I know how exciting it can be to see what photos were made. Believe me, I can't wait to get them to you! But I also want to take the time to ensure that you receive the best possible images.
Can I use the photos on Facebook?
Absolutely! All I ask is that the photo is not cropped, filtered, or altered in any way. I put a lot of work into the finished product.
What should we wear to our engagement session?
I have created a few Pinterest boards for inspiration for the ladies, as well as the fellas. This is simply meant for inspiration, not copying. Sometimes it can be daunting to decide what to wear. Shoot me a message and I'll send you the links to the Pinterest boards. People tell me I have good style. I got you.
What do you shoot with?
Typically I'm armed with a Canon 5D Mark III (x's 2), a Canon 24mm f1.4 L, Canon 35mm f1.4 L, Canon 50mm f1.2 L, Canon 135mm f2 L, Canon 70-200 f2.8 L, a few strobes, lots of memory cards, and batteries. For travel, I usually have my Fuji X100S around my neck. If you're a photographer and would like to know more about what's in my bag, shoot me a message.
Can I get the RAW files?
Unfortunately, no. The best way I believe to describe "why" is this: When we eat out at a restaurant, we don't usually ask the chef for raw, unprepared food, do we? Photos are no different. The picture taking process doesn't stop after the camera shutter snaps. Afterwards, I spend a lot of time culling images and editing them to make sure they're at their absolute finest. Don't worry. The images I send you will be the best I can deliver.
Are you looking for second shooters?
Always. Shoot me a message and we'll chat.
What if you didn't answer my question here?
Shoot me an email and I'll be all over it.
