I’m actually a hybrid shooter! I am in LOVE with the romantic look of film photography, the nostalgic feel of Polaroid photography, and the bright fun feel of digital photography.
For digital photography I use a Canon 5d Mark III with my 50mm/1.2 lens being on there 95% of the time. For film I have a Hasselblad medium format camera, a Leica 35mm which is fun for black and white photography, a Polaroid 195, a Polaroid SX-70, and a Holga.
I live between New Orleans, Louisiana and Nashville, Tennessee, but I travel all over the world to photograph weddings! So far I’ve photographed weddings and engagements in Canada, California, Texas, New York, Florida, Washington, Massachusetts, Kansas, and Illinois. In 2015 I’m traveling to Georgia, Missouri and Norway!
Of course! I feel like family photographs are so important! I always ask my couples for a list of every family photograph that they would like. This way, I can judge how much time the family photographs will take, and no one will be forgotten. Generally, photographing parents, siblings, grandparents, and bridal party takes about 20 minutes.
No more than 6 weeks! Usually it’s faster than that, but during the height of wedding season it’s pretty much exactly 6 weeks.
All of my packages include the high resolution files with a personal print release so you guys can make your own prints, albums, etc. I also have online galleries where family and friends can order their own prints :)
I ask for a $1000 retainer and a signed contract in order to reserve the date. The additional package balance is due no later than 30 days before the wedding.
Couples book me anywhere from 6 months to 2 years in advance. A lot of times people have no idea how much coverage they would like, or if they can budget extra for film photography. So, as long as you let me know the package you would like when your final balance is due, then I’ll have enough time to order film etc.
I take all payments (Credit and Debit Cards, eChecks etc) via Paypal. It’s secure and awesome and makes doing my taxes so much easier! When you decide to book I will send you an invoice and all you have to do is follow the easy instructions Paypal provides.
