Do you shoot destination weddings?
I LOVE destination weddings. I’ve shot weddings throughout Canada, the US, Mexico and would love to work with you to find out how you can have incredible photography wherever your wedding adventure takes you. Shooting in new places energizes me creatively and the bonding experience of travelling together is like none other. Every location and destination wedding is different, whether you’re going to Tofino or Tahiti, so contact me for a custom quote!
How long will it take to get my photos?
This depends on the time of year, as later in the wedding season my editing load builds up a little more as I’m busy shooting multiple weddings, engagements and portrait sessions every week. Most couples will wait 2-4 weeks to get their photos, and I guarantee an absolute maximum of 60 days in my contract.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
Yes absolutely, I don’t schedule any other shoots on wedding days and if you need me to stay for some extra time I’m happy to do so at my additionally hourly rate.
What kind of gear do you use?
I have two Canon 1Dx Mark ll full frame cameras each equipped with a variety of canon L glass.
Do I have to order prints through you?
Vix ut utinam feugait. Eu scribentur liberavisse nec. Dico fugit nostro cu pri, no putent nemore mel, ius at minim molestiae.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations are a tough situation that nobody wants to encounter, but we need to have a plan just in case. Because of the nature of weddings happening primarily on weekends during the warmer part of the year, those dates are valuable and limited, and most wedding bookings happen well in advance and dates cannot typically be filled with a late cancellation. Sometimes I will receive as many as 20 inquiries for a single date, and there’s no way to know from year to year which dates may be twice as popular as the weekend before or after. Once you’ve booked your wedding with me, I turn away all other inquiries for your date and as such I need to be protected in the event of a cancellation for the lost work and revenue. To accommodate all of this as best as possible, while aiming to be fair to both my couples and myself, my cancellation policy is as follows: In the event of a cancellation, if I am unable to fill the date with another booking, no moneys already paid will be refunded. This ties into my payment policy of $1000 booking upfront, 50% of balance due 6 months prior to the wedding, and remaining 50% balance due one week prior to the wedding. Should you happen to cancel more than 6 months in advance of your wedding and I’m unable to fill the date with another booking, all you are out is your deposit, as with this much notice there is a reasonable chance I may be able to book another wedding on the date. If you cancel less than 6 months before the wedding and I’m unable to fill the date with another booking, you are out your deposit and the 50% balance, but are off the hook for the final payment. Should I happen to fill the date after a cancellation with another booking, you will be entitled to a full refund, unless we have already shot your engagement session in which case you will not receive your $1000 deposit back.
Do you instruct for posing? I’m kind of awkward/unphotogenic.
Most of us aren’t models, so it’s no surprise that the vast majority of couples tell me when we first meet that they’re awkward on camera or they never look good in photos. These are the same people that you now see filling the galleries on my website in my favourite images. The piece of feedback I’ve probably received most over the years is that I was able to put everyone at ease and make them feel comfortable. Part of this is through my flexible, no stress and sometimes silly approach to direction, and part of this is through working with couples that I connect with. Yes I absolutely provide direction wherever needed, but that doesn’t mean your photos are going to feel stiff or posed; Sometimes giving great direction means letting you know where to go, getting you to do something silly and capturing a REAL moment of laughter between the two of you amidst the pre visualized composition I came up with. One of the most important and underrated aspects of wedding photography is choosing a photographer who you feel personally comfortable with; someone that you would actually want to invite to the biggest party you will ever plan, and hopefully someone who makes you laugh. This is why I try to meet in person or over video chat with all my couples who inquire, to give them a chance to see if I am that person for them, and vice versa!
How much retouching do you do?
Every image you receive is individually edited for colour, contrast, exposure and style. Some images occasionally require a little more finessing for temporary things like blemishes and pimples, but things like heavy facial retouching, wrinkle removal or body reshaping are not included with my standard wedding packages and are available for an additional fee.
Do you deliver RAW files?
shoot and edit every wedding in RAW to ensure the maximum amount of exposure and colour information is available for my editing, however I deliver edited and finished high resolution JPEG files and do not include RAW files with my packages. If you are extremely interested in having the RAW files these are available with an additional fee and agreement.
How many images are included with your coverage?
Every package includes a guaranteed minimum number of delivered images that works out to around 45 images per hour of shooting. However, this number is an absolute minimum and when deciding which images to deliver I do not work around a target number of delivered images. What this means is that I will never hold back on delivering a good photo because I’ve already reached a quota; If an image is sharp and in focus, well exposed, has good expressions and is NOT a duplicate ( Nobody wants 17 photos that are almost identical but for a 4 degree movement in somebody’s arm ) then I will deliver it. This typically equates to approximately double my guaranteed minimums. Every wedding day is different though and certain variables can mean some weddings end up with more final images than others.
How do I get my photos after?
Your photos will be delivered to you in an online gallery on my website, from the gallery you can print, view, and download high resolution files to your heart’s content. You have the option to password restrict your gallery or keep it openly viewable to make it easier for friends and family to view.
