-How do you describe your style?
My style is one that floats between organic fine-art and romantic story-telling with a modern twist, using natural light as much as possible. I want your pictures to tell what your day felt like, instead of just what it looked like.
-How many pictures do I get?
It depends. You will usually receive between 500-700 shots for an 8-hour day. I know that’s a large range, but the location of the ceremony and reception, how many locations we go to, what kind of details you’ve invested in, and what type of reception you have all have an impact on how many shots you will get back.
-Do you edit all the pictures?
Yes. I love the warm and organic look of film. When shooting digital, my edits emulate that same look. If you would like any specific editing outside of the basics (exposure, white balance, etc.), these are quoted on a picture by picture basis.
-Do you shoot film or digital?
I am a hybrid shooter and often shoot a combination of digital and film. There are parts of the day or certain types of shots I love where film just works better and vice-versa for digital. I can also give quotes for all-film coverage. Please keep in mind that all-film is much slower to process and considerably more expensive.
-Do you travel and what are the charges?
Absolutely – I love to travel! The travel fee is generally based off of mileage outside of a 50 mile radius from Portland. If over-night stays are required, then I can work that out with you.
-How long have you been a photographer?
Most of my life. I’ve been behind a camera since I was 10, professionally since 1994, and shooting weddings since 2007.
-Are their any other fees or charges associated with hiring you?
Nope – what you see is it – nothing hidden and nothing extra!
-What happens if you can’t make the wedding?
This has never happened. However, I work within an extensive network of talented photographers that would be able to fill in at a moments notice and rescue the day!
-What gear do you keep in your bag?
You know, cameras and stuff! For digital, I use Nikon D4s and Fuji X-T2s. My gear bag has an assortment of prime and zoom lenses and a whole mess of flashes, & video lights. For film, I shoot with a Pentax 645n for medium format and swap between my Nikon FM3A, Nikon F4, and Nikon FE for 35mm (yes – I like Nikon!). And you will usually find a bag of nuts and seeds or a Kind bar or two. (Yep, I share)
-Well, that’s the cat’s meow – sign me up!
Awesome! As soon as you contact me to secure your date, I will send out a contract to you. You then have 7 days to return the contract with a 50% retainer and you are all set! We can also do payment-plans for the retainer.
