Do you shoot film or digital photography?
I’m actually a hybrid photographer, and feel as though there are huge benefits to both film and digital photography. Film photography has a natural and romantic vibe which is perfect for portraits and getting ready shots. Digital photography, on the other hand, is great for those wild times when your grandma is doing the cupid shuffle on the dance floor! If you're looking for something a little more unique, then Polaroids make for some pretty amazing one-of-a-kind portraits.
What type of equipment do you use?
For digital photography I use a Canon 5d Mark III with my 50mm lens being on there 95% of the time. For film I either use a Contax or Hasselblad medium format camera, a Leica 35mm and my Polaroid SX-70. My favorite film is Kodak Portra 400.
How long have you been photographing weddings? How many have you photographed?
I've been photographing weddings since 2009 and have photographed over 250 weddings.
Are you comfortable shooting in low light situations?
Of course! I've photographed everything from dark churches to the dark streets of New Orleans during a second line.
How long does it take to get the pictures back from my wedding?
No more than 8 weeks! Usually it’s faster than that, but during the height of wedding season it’s pretty much exactly 8 weeks.
Do you include high resolution files?
Yes, 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 :)
Where are you located?
I currently live between New Orleans, Louisiana and Nashville, Tennessee.
Do you travel for weddings?
Yes! All the time! I've photographed weddings all over the United States, as well as Norway, Ireland, France and Canada.
I love your work! How do I book you?!
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.
What if I don’t know what package I want now? Can I change it later? I’d love to add film but I’m not sure if I can budget it right now!
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.
What types of payment do you accept? Do you take credit cards?
I accept payments via Bitcoin, credit card, or check.
