How do I book you? 

To secure a date, I require a 25% deposit and a signed contract. You can get in touch with me anytime to secure your booking.

How long will it take to get my photos?

I always try to give samples the following day. For full delivery, please expect 9-12 weeks for weddings, 2-3 weeks for engagements, and 1-3 weeks for lifestyle sessions.

How many photos will I get?

It depends on the type of session you book. Typically with lifestyle shoots, I provide somewhere between 80-200 images. For weddings, you’ll receive 1000-3000 images depending on how much time you booked with me.

Can we meet you before our wedding?

Yes, of course! I like to start by inviting couples to my studio for a meet and greet. If a couple is interested, we’ll follow up with an engagement shoot. I always like to visit the venue with the couple prior to their wedding day so we can scout out locations and come up with a good game plan. Typically, I’m also present for rehearsal and help to orchestrate a bit if needed.

If your wedding isn’t local, I always love chatting over Facetime or Skype. Typically, I’ll try to fly out a few days before your wedding.

Can we add more time to our wedding package? 

Absolutely! Typically when you book your photographer, it’s a year before the big day. It’s difficult to know exactly how long you’ll need me that far in advance. Most couples within the week of their wedding know if they’ll need more time. I would never leave a wedding without making sure the couple is happy and got all of the shots they hoped for.

Do you have a second photographer?

I do! You’ll have the choice to add a second shooter when you select your package. I have a lot of talented photographers I work with. I’ve also done weddings solo ranging anywhere from 20 to 250 guests. I like working with my friends, so if you need to add a second shooter the option is available.

Can we see a full wedding gallery?

Of course! If you send me a message, I’m happy to send you a link to a full wedding day.

How far in advance do you book?

Most of my weddings are booked a year or more before the couple’s big day. I’ve also received inquires just a month in advance. Please feel free to send me a message to see if I’m available at any point during your planning journey.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Check, Cash, Credit Card, PayPal

Where are you located? Would you travel for my wedding?

This is a beautiful world we live in, so yes! My home/business is in Frederick, Maryland. Besides working in and around my great city, I often travel throughout DMV.  I love traveling to photograph weddings. If you’re interesting in having me be a part of your wedding day, please email me for my travel rates.

How long have you been in business?

I’ve been in business for over 10 years. In 2013 I made the switch to full-time photography. After the birth of my son, I realized life is too short to work a job you don’t love.

Are you Insured?

Yes, I am. Most venues require photographers to have insurance.

If you have any questions, please send me a message and I’ll be happy to answer them. Thank you!
