How many weddings do you shoot each year?
For 2019 I will have shot 34 weddings and 21 other events from lifestyle to corporate. With that said I do now have a baby boy and a freaking awesome wife that I want to make sure I spend time with so for 2020 I want to shoot around 25 weddings and maybe 10 other events.
What is your typical process for working with a potential client?
Meeting with coffee! I really believe that meeting in person sets the tone for a great event. Being able to chat about the event, needs, details and just getting to know one another in person is always beneficial. Granted this is not always an option in which case a phone conversation or multiple is always helpful as well.
Do you offer payment plans?
Awesome couples get awesome benefits like payment plans. I get it, you’ve got the photographer, caterer, venue, florist, planner, and maybe a few other big ticket items that you have to take care of first which is why we offer payment plans to cater to your specific needs.
When Will I get the final edits?
I really don’t like having a long to do list so I do my best to have your edits in within 4-6 weeks from your wedding date. In a rush though? No problem, I can get it done faster for a premium!
Can we pick our own music?
Unfortunately, no, but you’ll understand why. Do you hire a photographer that you love to shoot like someone else? Do you pick a sunflower thinking it will turn into a rose? For both law and creative purposes it is for the best :) I make sure that all my music is licensed and I spend a good amount of time sometimes up to a week finding a song that really fits my stile of editing AND matches you two. After getting to know you two and being there on your wedding day I get to see the music you are into and all the special moments that I know I’d want to have in your film.
What do you do with the footage when you are done with it?
I hold on to all the raw footage for about a year just in case you wanted to purchase the raw footage later if you didn’t already order it.
What gear do you use?
I am currently using two Sony a7iii’s with a variety of lenses. To stabilize my footage I use a DJI Ronin S and for the aerial shots I use the DJI Mavic Air.
Do you only shoot weddings?
Weddings are my specialty but I do love to shoot other events whether personal or corporate.
