Deliverables and Process
How long does it take to receive my images?
Portrait sessions will be made available 2 weeks after the shoot.
I deliver wedding photos within 2 weeks. Standard time in the industry is 6-8 weeks at minimum. I am pretty proud of this turnaround – who likes waiting long? It’s not that I rush the editing, I just photograph correctly and do not depend on editing to make the image better. I got a groove down for an efficient workflow process plus I drink a ton of stale strong coffee to keep me going. In peak season this can be up to 4 weeks but generally I always deliver under 2 weeks!
Will all the pictures be edited?
How many images can I expect?
For portrait sessions (basically non-wedding) you can expect 40-60 images. For weddings, around 50-75/hr. But I don’t hold it to a number this is a rough estimate. I do you the favor of taking out the outtakes like blinks, test shots, duplicates etc. All the images are edited for color, exposure, sharpness and white balance. So, you end up with the best of your day.

Can I have the RAW files or any unedited images?
How is your style concerning editing? Is black/white possible?
I am happy to edit your photos in a natural and warm style. You can see the style of my editing on my PORTFOLIO page. Some pictures will be black and white – when it fits to the motive. You can request an entire gallery in black and white with your color collection, for additional information please contact me via e-mail.
You mentioned an online gallery. How does this work?

How will I receive my files? Do I get a print release?
How long are videos and delivery time for videos?
My videographer is able to deliver various length Highlight Reel packages based on your budget. Highlight reels are just that the highlights of your wedding from the start of getting ready to the end of the day. A video is actually 10x more time-consuming in the editing process, it involves steps such as but not limited to watching all the footage, edit out the bloopers, sync audio, put clips together to tell the story properly, find the right music, etc. With all that being said we typically get our videos delivered within 4-6 weeks depending on the length of video chosen, video could take up to 8 weeks during the high of wedding season.

Where are you located? Can I book you for a wedding abroad?
I am currently located in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, I specialize in Destination Elopements & Weddings. It’s a pleasure to travel there where the best day of your life takes place. I am experienced concerning bookings abroad, and always looking to the future to travel to many new countries abroad.

Are you licensed and insured?
What kind of payment do you take?

This contract is legit, Dan! It’s kind of scary actually. Are you. mean?
Hey, guess what? This contract isn’t about you. It is a series of WHAT IFS and MAYBES and WORST CASE SCENARIOS that haven’t happened to me, but just in case they God forbid do, I want you to know how I’m going to handle it. The contract is for you and for me, so don’t be intimated. I’m really nice. I have had a hundred people sign that contract in the last year, completed our agreement, delivered their files, sent a million emojis and GIFs and we’ve all continued living our lives. It’s a beautiful thing to have some structure on the that side of things, even though we are going to love each other and forget about all that business stuff within the first five minutes of first meeting. I promise.
Can we meet before booking?
One of the big reasons why my website is transparent is so you can know right away if I am the right choice for you. I also always do Instagram stories and Facebook LIVE, so you can feel connected to my personality so that I don’t feel like a stranger to you. I will certainly keep in touch often and am always easy to get ahold of through email, phone call, and FaceTime.
What does your wedding coverage cost and which services are included?
How do you manage the prepayment for your work?
How many outfits can I have?
What do you wear at our wedding/elopement?
My team and myself will come to your wedding looking like true bad ass professionals. We will blend in with your guest as best as possible to make us blend into the crowd, our outfits would be considered “business casual”. Feel free to make fun of me and my stylish new balance DAD shoes, being on your feet for 10 hours running around just isn’t the right fit for my nice Dolce and Gabbana dress shoes!
How should I dress for my session?
Do you use flashes very often or available light?
What kind of Equipment do you use?
How should we prepare for our session with you?
Can my sister/ brother/ best friend/ aunt watch our session?
I treat session like a closed set. And that’s not just for me, it’s for you. I find that allowing people to tag along during really murders the vibe. I like connecting, just the three of us and knowing someone is watching throws me off and throws you off too, you just don’t know it yet. But trust me this is my jam!
What and when do you eat on our wedding day?
