how long have you been a photographer?
Four years! I started when my son was born and I wanted to document his life.
where are you based out of?
But, I do travel to the Tampa area. Basically anywhere in between Lakeland and St. Pete. FL.
How many images do you include?
Each session varies. But I promise you will get plenty of images. One thing I stand firm on is the old saying: "quality over quantity".
What is your turnaround time?
Typically for a session it takes three weeks or less. For weddings five weeks or less. The turnaround time depends on how much I shoot, how busy I am (I have a regular Monday - Friday job), my travel schedule, and the holidays. But I do try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image needs.
do you give raw unedited images?
No. I believe editing is half the magic that goes into images.
How do payments work?
I require 50% non refundable retainer for anything not related to weddings. For weddings I require a $200 non refundable retainer. The remainder of your balance regardless of the service is due seven days prior to our session date. :)
Can you photoshop us?
I don't alter the way you look other than skin blemishes or anything that would normally not be there: (bruise, scrape, acne etc. unless you'd like me to keept them in the image.) If you are self conscious or concerned about something, please let me know and I'll be sure to be extra aware of that while I am posing you.
What do we wear for photos?
I have a small guide to help you get ready for your session, and I also create a mood board of examples. But, I love to help you choose your outfit. So, feel free to send me your outfits or what you have in mind and I can help you coordinate.
What if i need to cancel/reschedule our shoot or wedding?
If you have already put a deposit down on a date, the deposit is non-refundable. Your deposit will be moved to another date or session type.
What happens if you can't make it to our session or wedding?
I do hope this never happens, but life is full of unexpected surprises. This would only happen if the situation is out of my control (act of God, illness, death, etc.) I will try my best to find a replacement with a similar style, although I am not legally held to do. If I can not make it to your wedding or session your money will be refunded.
What if there is bad weather?
As we live in Florida, I like to think that you and I know how our weather can change from one moment to the next. Hell, some days we experience all four season in 24 hours! But, I will say that this can make your session interesting, unique, and makes for good photos. However, if it is rough out there we can reschedule and this will keep my gear safe!
Do you help in the planning process?
Absolutely! Although, I am not a wedding planner...I can definitely sit down over coffee or Facetime and help figure out your wedding timeline in order to get our photos in! Just ask!
Do you photograph families?
I don't anymore, unless it's for couples that I've photographed in the past or a maternity session.
Do you offer discounts?
No, my prices are firm.
