Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How would you describe your style?

A. It’s a bit difficult trying to encapsulate my style and artistic vision into a short paragraph, but I often describe my work as romantic, vibrant, moody, woodsy, emotional, offbeat, and artistic. Lots of words, huh? I can’t help myself. I am really drawn to rich, deep, bold colors and real, authentic emotions. I want to experiment and create fine art while still capturing the true story of the wedding.

Q. Where are you located?

A.  I live in the mountains of Northeast, PA in Friendsville but I recently moved up here from the suburbs of Philadelphia. Therefore, I have client bases in both areas. This means that I don’t charge extra for travel in the surrounding areas of Philadelphia & Bucks County, PA as well as Northeast, PA and Southern Tier, NY.

Q. Do you travel?

A. An emphatic 'yes, please'! This wedding season I will be traveling to Ireland, Florida, Las Vegas, Georgia, Missouri, Anguilla, California, and Maryland for some super cool weddings and sessions. Take a look at my 'Destination Wish List' to see what locations I'm dying to photograph, you may get a sweet deal if you're gettin' hitched at one of my dream locations ;) For more information on traveling rates and for a custom quote, shoot me an inquiry from my contact form.

Q. What is film and why shoot with it?

A. When I talk about shooting film, I'm referring to shooting on photographic negatives that are developed in the darkroom; the medium we used before the age of digital cameras. I could write pages and pages to why I shoot with it, but to keep it short; it’s beautiful. The way film captures light, texture, detail, and color is yet to be matched. However, film is very costly and finicky, so I shoot 'hybrid', which means I shoot on both film and digital. This way you still get the timelessness, romanticism, and detail of film with the accuracy and dependency of digital. My film is scanned onto the computer, so you will receive all of the digital & film images in a cohesive and seamless gallery.

Q. What equipment do you use? What happens if something breaks?

A. I use several professional grade full-frame digital and film cameras, lenses, and flashes with full backups of everything. The film will be scanned and seamlessly integrated with the digital files on your flash drive, so you will have a consistent and consecutive gallery. I also have multiple backups of all of your images to ensure your files are never lost.

Q. How many images will we receive?

A. Engagement sessions typically range between 30-60 images. Weddings typically range between 400-800 images depending on the hourly coverage, the amount of wedding-day details, and how much time I'm given for portraits. All images are edited for correct exposure, contrast, sharpness, white balance, and color.

Q. We want to book you! What’s next?

A. -happy dance- Yay! All I require is a non-refundable reservation retainer and the signing of my contract to book your wedding date on my calendar! The retainer is 1/3 of the package cost + tax.
