Where do you live and how far do you travel?
I live in Perth, Ontario. It is a 60 minute commute to downtown Ottawa and Kingston. I am accustomed to travelling into the city and my pricing reflects that. I am also available for hire in Toronto and Montreal for an additional fee.
Can you explain your style of photography?
I am inspired by street and photojournalist photographers such as Vivian Maier and Zalmy Berkowitz.
I consider myself primarily a documentary photographer as I photograph a wedding / event using a candid approach 80% of the time.
What is your delivery time and how do we get our photographs from you?
You are looking for a relaxed but meticulous experience from start to finish, and beautiful photographs that reflect your [real life] story.
As of January 1st, 2022, delivery of entire gallery will be made within 6 weeks of wedding or portrait session. I do not do sneak peaks.
I will send you a link and download code which gives you access to your photographs online where you can download, favourite, share, and order prints. The gallery is password-protected and there is no watermarks or logos.
How many photographs do you deliver?
It depends on the size and duration of event. An 8 hour wedding can expect a minimum of 600 files.
How do we secure our date with you and what do you accept for payment?
I send you the contract to be signed electronically through my Canadian owned & operated invoicing program, Sprout Studio. Once the contract is signed it will automatically take you to the payment section where a non-refundable retainer is made to secure your date on my calendar. The remaining balance is due 14 days before the wedding but can also be paid on a monthly basis leading up to the wedding. I accept E-Transfer (most preferred), VISA, MasterCard and AMEX.
Do you use a second photographer?
Praesent commodo cursus magna, vel scelerisque nisl consectetur et. Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus.
In general, I work by myself and feel very confident doing so.
Second photographers are available a la carte and recommended when there is more than 150 guests, detailed circumstances or different set-ups.
Do you photograph family formal portraits?
I provide my clients with gorgeous, organized and well-lit family portraits. These photographs are so important and lets be honest, everyone prints these! I will help you arrange for them and make them apart of the day that is enjoyable and efficient for everyone involved.
How long do we have to wait to get our full gallery of images?
Praesent commodo cursus magna, vel scelerisque nisl consectetur et. Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus. Donec sed odio dui. Tellus elementum sagittis vitae et leo. Sit amet nisl purus in mollis nunc sed id semper. Praesent commodo cursus magna, vel scelerisque nisl consectetur et.
Do we need to feed you at our reception?
Yes I require a meal at dinner, and will be ever so grateful for it.
