Frequently Asked Questions
What equipment do you use?
I use the best Nikon DSLR cameras and lenses that money can buy and always bring backup equipment. If you really want to know here’s what I bring to each of my weddings:
Nikon z6 (super quiet and awesome mirrorless technology)
(2) Nikon D700’s
Nikon 70-200mm VR f/2.8
Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
Nikon 50mm f/1.8
Nikon D910 Speedlight
What do you wear?
I usually sport Lilly Pulitzer dresses just because they are so Cape Cod and fit in with the wedding guests. We also wear cute but comfy shoes.
How many pictures do you take?
That’s really hard to say. I take tons of photos because I want to make sure I capture all of the moments of the day. On average, probably 80-100 images per hour of shooting. But, I will do you the favor of eliminating images that are too similar or that you were blinking. All the images that you are shown are edited for color, exposure, sharpness and white balance.
How do we book you and what's your payment plan?
To make sure that you’ve booked me for your wedding date I require a $1,000 retainer and an electronically signed wedding contract. Another $500 payment is due 6 months before the wedding day and the balance is due 14 days before the wedding. If you want us to set up a payment plan, just ask.
When will we get our pictures?
I have quick turn-around times with galleries ready in 2-3 weeks and the majority of my couples with their wedding album within 6 months. I will share sneak peeks before that because I know you are so excited to see what we have.
I've seen snippets from different weddings on your site, but can we see a whole wedding day from start to finish?
This is one of the most important things you can ask photographers you’re interviewing so the answer is yes! You’ll want to make sure that I know how to take amazing photographs in any situation, of anyone and of anything.
I don’t want to spend an hour taking family photos, do I have to?
Absolutely not. It’s your day. You tell me who you want to get in family photos and we will get everyone ready to go and it will be done within 15-20 minutes.
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes and we’ll be happy to provide your venue with proof of coverage.
Do you have any other questions? Please contact me and I will get them answered.
